Samoens is a great choice for a summer holiday with family or friends in the stunning scenery of the French Alps. A picturesque traditional farming village, with authentic Savoyard charm and an intimate family feel, it has historic stone buildings, narrow streets lined with local shops and a quaint marketplace where Le Gros Tilleul (the large lime tree) sits. Throughout the village there is an array of excellent bars and restaurants, typically specialising in local Savoyard cuisine. There is a weekly market where you will be able to pick up local produce.

There really is something for everyone, whether you want to just relax and enjoy the tranquillity and breathtaking scenery, or if you want to get involved in some of the many activities on offer for all ages.
