3 reasons that Samoëns should be your next ski destination
Samoëns is the hidden gem of the French Alps. The quietly charming village resort is tucked away amongst beautiful landscapes, and it is undoubtedly one of the most fantastic ski destinations the French Alps have to offer. If you’re not sure whether or not it’s for you, then this blog post is here to help you decide by giving you the top 3 reasons that you should be choosing Samoëns as your next ski destination.
Element of secrecy
Samoëns has long remained almost unvisited by tourists to the French Alps, as until recent years it was relatively difficult to access the ski slopes from this beautiful little commune. This means the village has had time to develop its own character and charm, without major influence from the outside world. That little element of secrecy is part of what makes Samoëns such a magical place to visit. From the moment you arrive, you truly feel like you can see the history of the village coming to life all around you, and you can see why it is considered as the hidden gem of the French Alps.
Even in summer, Samoëns is a fantastic setting for a family-friendly luxury holiday. The delightful warm weather unveils flower-filled meadows, making the perfect setting for long summer walks. In winter, the snow coats everything, making the views perhaps even more breathtaking than in summer. The Alps are well-known as being an idyllic destination, but pair this with the wonderful quiet charm of the village and you have a dream holiday destination.
Samoëns is considered to be one of France’s most family-friendly ski resorts due to the range of difficulties available on the slopes. The slopes around Samoëns are great for beginners, as the Samoëns 1600 offers a number of fantastic nursery slopes, but there are also plenty of options for those who are more advanced. There really is something to suit every member of the family at this beautiful Alps resort.
