A village with many assets

Samoëns is not only a great option for a ski holiday. This village in the south of the Haute-Savoie has much more to offer.

Samoëns is indeed a destination of choice for those who like to combine fun and discovery. A long walk through its narrow streets will allow you to meet the famous stone churches and chapels of yesteryear which already trace the history of the resort.

You can also appreciate its architectural heritage with old buildings such as the Chateau de la Tour. In the same way, how to speak about Samoëns without evoking the Gros Tilleul? This tree, planted in 1438 (visible on the square of the same name) has become a real emblem of the village.

Of course, the charm of this beautiful resort is also enough on its own to inspire you to relax when you need it.
