About Stephanie Marcus
I live in England with my husband and our 3 children. We spend most of our holidays in France, hiking in the summer and skiing in the winter.
Stephanie Marcus purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why Stephanie Marcus chose Samoëns
We love Samoens because the skiing is so accessible and there are many different areas to ski in. Geneva airport is less than an hours drive away and Calais only eight hours by car. We love the town which is very picturesque and retains a typical Savoyard charm. In summer you can hike, swim, raft, ride, play tennis.
What makes this Apartment unique
The property is extremely comfortable and just two minutes walk from town centre and the ski bus stops opposite, or a short walk to the lift. Secure underground parking. South facing balcony. Small supermarket below. SHORTER STAYS AVAILABLE ON REQUEST
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Lovely stay, very cosy, clean and conveniently situated apartment. As others have said, perfectly situated for the bus stop across the road to get to the Grand Massif Express. Everything we needed for breakfast available in the Sherpa underneath, otherwise we ate out.
GREAT LOCATION IN SAMOENS
We had a great time in Samoens. The arrival was simple and access was exactly as per the instructions. The location near the Sherpa supermarket and the BLUE ski bus stop (Cinema) was fantastic. We never used the car for the short journey to and from the lifts. Being at the bus top at 08:45 meant we always caught the 08:49 bus. It was worth checking the return times on the posts at the ski lift so that we could time our lifts down from Samoens 1600. The very short walk into town was great for restaurants. This comfortable and well equipped apartment met all our needs, especially with the convenience of a dishwasher and washing machine. We also very much liked the rapid and helpful responses from the owner and the efficient booking and payment processes. Well done and thank you Stephanie!!
Lovely central apartment
What a great find....this apartment ticked all the boxes for us on our annual short ski break - it is lovely and warm and well equipped, very comfortable and in a superb location for both the town centre and the bottom of the Grand Massif Express - both just 5 minutes walk in opposite directions. It sits over the Sherpa supermarket which is greatly handy for supplies and the free ski bus stops right outside the door for those not wanting to walk with skiis etc. Aron and Stephanie are super to deal with and booking was very straightforward with easy access etc to the apartment. Would highly recommend and we will definitely return in the future......thank you!
Thank you for your feedback. We are so pleased you had an enjoyable stay in our apartment. We hope to welcome you again either winter or summer.
Smart modern apartment close to Samoens town centre and in walking distance of main lift.
This apartment had everything we needed for a ski break. The rooms are light and well appointed - with all you need in the kitchen to cook for yourself. A couple of minutes walk into the town, with a Sherpa supermarket underneath. The main ski lift up to Grand Massif is walkable, but if carting your skis does not appeal the skibus stops right outside.
Would definitely recommend.
