Traditional Alpine Resort Catherine Hughes, Product Manager

"Samoëns is a very pretty French village with lots of restaurants, bars and shops, much more than your average ski resort. It is a great base from which to explore the huge Grand Massif ski area and the short transfer from Geneva as well as a beautiful choice of accommodation make Samoëns a popular choice."

Activities in Samoens

You can sign up for relaxing experiences such as a heritage tour of the village or wine tasting, something slightly more energetic like dog sledding or snow-shoeing or have a full-on adrenaline rush paragliding. 

In the village there's a cinema, ice rink and a selection of shops and boutiques. Something not to miss is the Wednesday morning market for those who want to sample the local meats and cheeses.
