Overview - apartment description - Residence Alexane description

Luxurious and modern apartments in the centre of Samoens, treat yourself this winter with a stay at the Residence Alexane. The apartments are spacious and fitted with the latest appliances, so you can wake up in the morning and brew barista-style coffee with your very own Nespresso coffee machine, whilst you look out onto the snow-capped mountains.

Even with your well-equipped kitchen, if you don’t fancy cooking simply head down to the hotel’s restaurant that serves freshly prepared Italian cuisine made with natural or organic local produce. It’s open for breakfast and dinner, and there are complimentary snacks available at the bar and lounge – so sit back after a day on the slopes, sink into one of the cosy chairs and enjoy a drink. You’re in the centre of Samoens, too, so you can always nip out for dinner and drinks in one of the many restaurants and bars.

Relaxation is at the heart of Residence Alexane. There’s a large, indoor pool and a spa where you can soothe your ski muscles. Have a try of the sensory showers and dip into the Nordic bath to truly unwind. There’s even a fitness room, so you can keep in shape whilst away. And if you’ve got the kids with you, they’ll love the play area to keep them entertained until they’re next on the slopes.

"Ville Fleurie" awarded village Ski the Grand Massif Short transfers

This old mountain village is a real charmer – evidence of historic stonemasonry lines the streets and squares and with seven surrounding peaks, Mother Nature’s thrown in her own masterpieces too. The vibe in town is authentically French and pleasantly laid back; out on the piste, the Grand Massif ski area presents 265km of seriously underrated terrain.

At the base of Criou Mountain by the Giffre River, this original French market town fuses tradition, nature and modern ski facilities. The correct pronunciation has become a bit of a talking point here at Sno... Most say ‘Saa-mwans’ but depending on dialect, it can sound like ‘Saa-mwaz’ and even ‘Saa-muw-an’. If you’re still trying to perfect your Bonjour, don’t fret – smiles go a long way here and they’ll soon have you sounding like a true Septimontain, as the natives are fondly known (referring to th...
With instruction from ZigZag ski school and ESF and over 50kms of green and blue runs, there are plenty of opportunities for beginners to get comfortable on the slopes. The aptly named ‘Marvel’ in Morrilon is a firm family favourite, a scenic green that leads you along 6km of tree-lined pistes. If it’s open (being low down, the snow isn’t the most reliable) set your sights on skiing the blue Cascades. The longest run in the area, it starts at Les Grandes Platieres in Flaine, crosses the Sixt Fer a Cheval nat...
As you’d expect from such a good family resort, the nightlife is friendly and relaxed, with 15 bars and 30+ restaurants dishing up a lively atmosphere, hearty food and a proper locals’ welcome. Covey’s Irish Bar is a top spot for evening drinks with nightly events including bands, DJs, pub quizzes and live sport. For a relaxing drink, take a quick walk to the casual Savoie Bar on the main square for great cocktails and a bit of people watching. Eating out is usually pretty casual, although you might fin...
