Relax in the hot tub, unwind in the sauna or enjoy a game of pétanque after a busy day in the Grand Massif! This beautifully-renovated home for 12, just a short walk from the centre of Samoens, has everything you need for a great mountain holiday.
There are plenty of bars and restaurants in the traffic-free centre of the village, where narrow streets lead off the main square with its traditional church and fountain. There’s a free bus every 20 minutes in the high season, which will take you to the pistes at Morillon and Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval.

As part of the Grand Massif ski area, Samoens has links to more than 265km of pistes and a great lift network. There's still plenty to do when the snow melts with hiking and biking trails, as well as a treetop adventure park, whitewater rafting and a range of sports facilities at the Lac aux Dames leisure centre.

The OVO Network Review
Chalet Evonyx is a two-storey chalet for up to 12 guests, with five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a hot tub, sauna and pétanque court.
It's just a 10-minute walk from the centre of the charming village of Samoens - a favourite lunch stop for skiers exploring the Grand Massif ski area. In summer, there are wonderful walking, hiking and biking trails to discover, as well as a range of other activities.
As well as flexible sleeping arrangements, family-friendly Chalet Evonyx also has a playroom for children, a reading area on the landing and an office space for guests who need to keep up with work during their stay.
There's also a ski room with a heated boot rack, where you can leave your outdoor equipment before you come into the house.
There's a spacious furnished terrace off the living area and a small garden with a petanque court. Although the chalet is in a residential area, the owners plan to keep the garden private by screening it with plants and trees.
There's plenty to see and do at Chalet Evonyx, whatever time of year you visit. And we think the owners have provided all the facilities you need to make sure you have an unforgettable holiday in the Grand Massif.

From the owner
Hoan & Benjamin
We fell in love with Samoëns during a beautiful summer hike in Fer à Cheval, and Chalet Evonyx is the result of a renovation project by local craftsmen and a few months of hard work.
Our aim was to create a comfortable home with a spacious living area, perfect for getting together and making memories with family and friends.
What we particularly like about Samoëns is that you can stroll into the traditional village, walk along the Giffre river to Lac aux Dames or explore the extensive ski area.
Samoëns is lovely in all seasons.
We hope you'll feel at home here!

Great chalet and stay in Samoëns, highly recommend. Responsive and helpful host. Good location near ski bus stops or 3-5min drive in car to Grand Massif Telecabin. Walkable distance into Samoen and flat so easy walk. Lots of space and comfortable beds and rooms. Hot tub and sauna great after ski days
