Fabulous for Friends and Fiftieths!
We stayed here as a large group for my husband’s surprise 50th party. Su and Andy were amazing warm hosts, nothing was too much trouble, and they entered into the spirit of the surprise with us. They organised the special wines I requested and designed a ‘gala’ menu for the birthday night.
The chalet itself is beautifully converted, with lovely big spaces and superb design (it looks better in real life than in the photos). It didn’t just look nice, everything also worked, the beds were comfortable, the food delicious. There are lots of nice touches that show the thought and care that go into things – for example beautiful scented candles for the bathrooms, and matches to light them! Little packets of tissues to take to the slopes. These are small things but all mount up to paint the bigger picture.
If you want to ski in ski out, this of course can’t happen. Andy and Su were brilliant at dropping / picking up whenever we wanted, so everything was really easy. Samoens itself is a pretty village with a lovely market. However, the chalet was so gorgeous, that after all that skiing all we did was stay in – most unlike us!
