Clare Mann wrote for the Daily Telegraph....

"Samoëns is a breath of fresh mountain air. The French proudly describe it as one of their monuments historiques, that just happens to be attached to a great ski area.

 

The centre of Samoëns is traffic free, and has a beautiful square dominated by a magnificent lime tree.  The main street is a delight, full of gourmet shops offering mountain ham, local cheese and mouth-watering pâtisserie.  Every Wednesday there is a wonderful market selling local produce. There is also a handful of gorgeous Savoyard interior designer shops offering Alpine bric-a-brac: old skis, retro skiing photographs, antler lamps, "polar bear" skin rugs, and pretty china decorated with hearts. It's enough to make you want to buy a chalet on the spot."

Samoens Village - one of the most beautiful in France

Walking is easy - the village is flat and there are well marked routes along the river Giffre or up in to the low hills.  Samoens has a very good theatre and art centre with a host of activities and musical events throughout the season.  Quality spa treatments are offered by several local hotels.
