    Completed Summer 2019
    Ready for Winter Season 2019/20

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!

We had a lovely stay at Deux-Coeurs, home from home, well equipped, warm and comfortable.
Ideally situated, a few minutes walk from Samoens centre, ski bus stops at the end of the lane a couple of hundred metres away from the house.
As a family group of 10, with a wide range of ages from 3yrs upwards, the house suited us very well and allowed everyone to have their own space.

A great chalet in a very good location. Good skiiing (even though the weather messed it up a bit).

Thank you so much, David and Co, for allowing us to try out the delights of your beautiful residence, and in the stunning location of Samoens. We only had a week, but packed in loads of activities, which have all been described in detail above, and truly fell in love with the whole area. The chalet is a delight! The 6 of us were spoilt for choice as to where to sleep, with beautifully appointed bedrooms throughout, some with balconies, and bathrooms/en-suites aplenty. The kitchen was the best-equipped I've come across, in a self-catering property, and I could have been very adventurous with the cooking if I'd wished....being a very hot week, we spent much of it outdoors till pretty late, coming back to enjoy the wonderfully cold pool, with obligatory glass of crisp, local Rose wine and a crisp or two.....quick shower then off in to enjoy the delights of the numerous, characterful local restaurants - all within about 10mins walk. We also did carry-out pizza, with amazing local fresh veg for salad, and more local wine of course! So, apart from simple breakfasts (mainly local fruit, yoghurt and the obligatory pain au chocolat or newly discovered 'crevettes', I really didn't use the kitchen to its full potential. I get the feeling had the weather been worse, and/or this had been a winter holiday, I would have cooked more elaborate meals for sure. My Brother has a place in Flaine, so one day we tried the brand new, extremely clean and lovely 'piscine' in Les Carroz, before visiting Flaine. Flaine is not as big as Samoens, and has always been quite a functional ski-resort, but has some stunning scenery and walks too. Our favourite spot so far, is Sixt Fer a Cheval, and had the loveliest hike up to the waterfalls - truly like something out of Jurassic Park! Only down-side of the holiday, was Lee thinking he was a teenager again, leaping off a high rock ledge on the rafting trip, and losing the GoPro....anyone else going rafting with 'Atypik' anytime soon, might find it if they fancy diving to the bottom of a swirly, deep pool under 'said rock ledge...apparently it's full of great rafting footage of Lee and the 3 boys :( Having skied in the Alps for many years (40+, I'm terrifed to admit!), this was our first summer Alpine break, and we're completely hooked, and hope to be back very soon :D

We have just returned form a wonderful week staying in Chalet Petit Coeur. As described the chalet is fitted to a high standard and every single thing has been thought of. We are a family of 4 with 2 teenagers and the size was just perfect. Freesat & Netflix were an added bonus and the beds are all wonderfully comfortable. I would not hesitate to stay in this chalet again and would like to mention the owners in-resort management company Kukipegs who are absolutely on the ball. Communication with the owner before & after was also top notch. Don't hesitate to book, you'll love it.

A perfect week in the Alps. WOW! Our two families of 7 people had a ton of space to unwind after great skiing. Chalet was equipped with everything we needed. We did a lot of cooking - with all of the equipment we needed. The hot tub and outdoor grill allowed us to create some great after-skiing memories. Great location for the house - a quick walk to town, minutes by car from the Gondola, and, if needed, steps from the ski bus. We had four teenagers along for the trip - movies, Playstation, and games were all provided. Great house and great hosts. Thanks.
