Compare Ski and Snowboard Hire for Samoens >


Samoens is an attractive, traditional French village with a proper French feel to it.
It is not however, as an access point into the Flaine domian the best, with the lifts outside the village. It is easy to reach from Geneva and therefore whilst that makes transfer times good it also makes for weekend crowds.

The skiing is extensive, and although a little tricky for beginners, others will find the variety on offer outstanding. The biggest drawback though is the fact the main way up (and down as there is no piste back) the mountain is one of two lifts some distance from the village.
