Samoens is perhaps the cutest of the lower traditional farming villages that share the extensive Grand Massif ski area with purpose-built Flaine.

Packed full of alpine charm, the village has a small traffic free centre of narrow streets, a pretty square, church and other medieval buildings. It is a great base for families and those after an authentic "rural France" experience.

We know how valuable your skiing time is to you so that is why we can to pre-book your lift passes for you, to save you the time and hassle of doing it once in resort. No additional charge!

The lift passes will be ready and waiting for you in your chalet/hotel/apartment, so you can hit the slopes immediately! You can book these at any time after you've booked.

The last thing you want to do at the start of your holiday is queue up in a crowded ski hire shop. We understand this and that is why we offer to pre-book all your equipment so that it is ready and waiting for you. You can either collect it from the shop yourself or some shops even offer a chalet fitting service, where all the equipment will be brought around to the chalet, thus avoiding the ski hire shop completely.
