These are two neighbouring properties with a family “home from home” feel. Each property can be rented as a standalone or they can be rented together to give a greater number of beds and various options for your group. They are owned by two families; and if you decide to come to Deux Coeurs and/or Petit Coeur we want you to make yourselves at home, and enjoy them as much as we do.
They are equally suitable for winter or summer holidays, are very well equipped and wonderfully relaxing.
Maison Deux Coeurs has 5 bedrooms sleeping 10, with an option of two additional beds on a mezzanine area - see floorplans. Chalet Petit Coeur has 2 bedrooms sleeping 4, with a good quality sofa bed in the lounge area for an additional 2 people - see floorplans. So a maximum of 18 can be accommodated. There is a Hot Tub and Spa Pool with maison Deux Coeurs which would be available to both properties if a joint booking. Both are available all year round at 16 degrees C, but can be heated to 26 degrees C in the winter for an additional charge.
We work in partnership with local companies, especially Fiona and Lewis and their team at Sea and Summit Property Services who provide a very friendly and professional service and in-resort support, tailored to your needs.
Samoens is, without doubt, very, very special, but you don’t need to take our word for it! The Telegraph definitely think so… Modern vs medieval: two types of French ski resort, but which is better?
…and so, too, do the Mail… French Alps Luxury
Samoëns (pronounced locally as ‘sam-wan’) is ancient dialect for ‘seven mountains’ or, in French, ‘septimontain’ – it’s true – from the village you are pretty much surrounded by seven mountains – snowy in winter, green in summer.
Samoens is still a fairly well-kept secret; a historic village in a picturesque valley which just happens to be a ski resort in winter and an activity hub in summer. Not that you’d easily tell though. Yes, it’s obvious what a beautiful historic place it is, what with its ancient streets, marketplace and Church, but the ski resort? You’d hardly know; one subtly placed high speed telecabine, the Grand Massif Express, whisks you discretely up one of the seven mountainsides to the ski domain that starts at Samoens 1600 and, from there, goes up, and up, and up! And as for the summer activity hub – Samoens takes a less obvious natural approach here. The bike trails are very au naturale – lots of grass and rocks, not so much of the artificial parks – although parks are available in nearby Les Carroz. And the watersports? – well they couldn’t come any more natural – the river descends from the equally historic Sixt, down through a spectacular gorge to Samoens itself.
Samoens is popular with the French – those who live there all year round - it is a proper village with local industries like cheese making, stonemasonry and carpentry - but also the French who visit for their holidays. That’s a good sign! And that being the case you can be assured of the very best of restaurants, bars and food shops – superb bakers, butchers, cheese shops, charcuteries and grocers. Don’t worry – there are a couple of the obligatory supermarkets too!
You will find that everyone is very friendly especially if you make an effort to speak a little French - however basic!
