As for the Samoëns weather, you’ll find the best time to visit is March, with an average of 287cm of snow at the top. Read More

We like Samoëns as it’s a lovely historic village.  With its traffic-free centre and weekly market, it’s a great location for visitors who want to make the most of a quieter resort and aren’t so worried about the nightlife.  Read More

Samoëns has lots of history beyond its wonderful Alpine charm.  It’s actually known as a national monument by the Cassie Nationale des Monuments Historiques.  You can find the town centre’s infamous big lime tree – or Le Gros Tilleul, which has stood here since 1438.  Read More

If you’re looking for more of a laid-back resort, Samoëns is a good choice.  Though it does have its share of bars, it has a more relaxed vibe.  Samoëns is a definite favourite for families from fun on the slopes, to its pedestrian only centre.  Read More
