For the children

Take time together as a family and create some truly memorable moments. We know that when your children enjoy their holiday, you enjoy yours – so we do our best to cater for their every need. The chalet – and staff – are child and teen-friendly, so whether yours are babies, five or 15, they’re guaranteed a great time.

Our spacious family suite has a mezzanine bedroom and is located away from the living room so as to provide a quiet retreat for our youngest guests. Cots, high chairs, baby alarms, stairgates, toys and anything else you may need, are available on request, along with car seats for safe travel in our chalet vehicles.

Children’s menus are designed to please parents and little ones alike, with healthy, fresh ingredients prepared in a tasty, child-friendly way.


Children’s activities and entertainment

With all the luxuries of home, your little ones won’t be bored. We’ve got plenty to entertain them, including an Xbox console with a range of games, traditional board games, DVDs for all ages (and a DVD player in every room) and Sky TV. Children are also welcome to use the Jacuzzi with adult supervision. Don’t just take our word for it – see what the press say!

Around Samoëns there is also lots to do, including:

  • Skiing and snowboarding lessons with English speaking instructors
  • Ice skating in the village
  • Christmas markets with Santa and reindeer
  • Specially designed children`s toboggan area at Samoëns 1600m
  • Building snowmen on the chalet lawn
  • Horse drawn sleigh rides through the village
  • Septitrain tourist rides through the village
  • Dog sledding by the lake
  • Snowmobile rides
  • Snoeshoeing (evening excursion includes dinner in Mongolian yurt)

Childcare

For parents who’d like a little time to themselves, we can easily arrange childcare either in or outside the chalet.

English-speaking child minders are also available for private day care. Please contact us for more information.

The Les Loupiots crèche in Samoëns provides day care for children aged three months to six years, with qualified staff and excellent facilities. The staff speak little English, but previous guests assure us that the service is great nonetheless. Morning and/or afternoon sessions are available, with or without meals.

Chalet night off can be parents’ night off, too – we can arrange for an English-speaking babysitter to come to the chalet to look after your children while you enjoy a night out in the village any evening of the week. Please contact us for prices and availability.
