    Completed Summer 2019

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!

Dear David, Thank you for hosting us last week in Samoens. The chalet is lovely - very comfortable and well-equipped, and so well positioned to walk into Samoens village which is incredibly picturesque and provided everything that we needed. For a novice, the powdery snow was perfect and I am so proud that I was able to ski down the mountain! The ZigZag tutor was excellent for our first lesson, and thank you for your patience on day 2!

Have just returned from a wonderful 10 days at Deux Coeurs. It was really hot, 35C, so thank goodness for the pool- it was great! Must say that despite the great heat, the house remained pleasantly cool, and for those needing respite from the heat, there were cool places indoors. Wonderful holiday for the family- children were able to cycle (quite strenuous, I believe), they went to lake and swam and did the "Go-ape", white water rafting etc. and at the house, the Xbox and technology that children enjoy,a good choice of DVDs, CDs, books and boxed games, as well as the pool and hot tub. We all enjoyed the facilities to barbecue and dine on the decking, with the gazebo to shelter from sun or wind, and to sunbathe round the pool. As a family we ate out in Samoens at delightful restaurants offering traditional French food, and when we chose to eat in, in the spacious dining area, a visit to the market was a wonderful opportunity to buy local food - the cheeses are fantastic, and the charcuterie is renowned, not to mention the irresistible patisseries from the local boulangerie. The wine was quite new to us, as it is generally unavailable in UK, but we have all developed a taste for it, it is good. The house is very well equipped, ( a Gaggia coffee maker!) and we all found the beds very comfortable. A visit to Sixt was memorable - a most beautiful little village higher up the valley, but we were disappointed that we couldn't go up the ski lift to the little restaurant at the top. The prices at Sixt were better than in Samoens, so if looking for souvenirs.......and we had a lovely lunch at a super restaurant there. The little train will take you to Sixt from Samoens on a guided tour, but we didn't avail ourselves of that. We did find prices on some things high, but there is a Carrefour in Samoens, which supplies most of our needs, and has a good choice of meat and veg and fruit, don't expect a fish counter, however! The market on a Wednesday is wonderful, but get there early, nip round quickly , as it closes at midday. Husband bought a snazzy little hat for 1 euro, and I bought a lovely pair of hand made ear-rings for 13 euros. The house is well situated for those who enjoy a leisurely stroll either into town or round the wonderful old farms in the valley. There are shady walks/cycling by the river and the house is right by the river, which is so clear, but quite turbulent, especially after the spectacular thunder storm we experienced one night, with sheet lightening which lit up the entire valley, and unbelievably heavy rain, but it just cleared away, leaving everywhere refreshed. The tap water is really good to drink,, straight off the mountain, and makes a good cup of tea. Can't recommend Deux Coeurs enough-a wonderful place which certainly ticked all the boxes for us ( all 3 generations!) and there is good support from the local team if needed. We found the guidelines for using facilities in the house clear and helpful, and for all the local amenities. Thank you for a stress free holiday.

Très beau chalet, très bien équipé où l'on se sent très à l'aise (comme chez nous). Nous avons passé 3 semaines de rêve: vue magnifique du chalet, piscine et jacuzzi très appréciés en cette période de canicule, très bien situé (proche des commerces). De plus, le petit cadeau d'arrivée nous a fait énormément plaisir. Je n'oublierai pas la gentillesse du propriétaire M. Black, sans oublier Fiona et Lewis qui, tout en discrétion, étaient toujours disponibles, serviables et, précieux pour tout renseignement. A noter aussi, en cette période délicate avec le COVID-19, le protocole sanitaire a été très bien appliqué. Samoens est aussi une très jolie ville avec un beau programme d'animations tout l'été ; il y en a vraiment pour tous les goûts ! Pour terminer, nous avons donc trouvé le paradis ; c'est au chalet "Des deux cœurs" à Samoens ! Un grand merci pour tout, M Black !

We loved our stay at Deux Coeurs...perfect for us as we were a large family and it never felt cramped. The hot tub and pool were great though I would have liked a bit more resistance. Perfect spot for strolling into the lovely town...all in all, a holiday to remember

Silvia and Pierre-Alain MARON

The Chalet "Petit Coeur" is very welcoming, really confortable for 4/5 , very well decorated and arranged. It lacks nothing: the bedding and the accommodation are very pleasant...without forgetting Fiona and Lewis who, while discreet, were always available, helpful and, invaluable for any information. Very close to the city center on foot. I highly recommend!
Very good stay in this difficult 2020 winter period!
We will gladly come back!
