Whilst there is nothing wrong with lazing on a beach with a strawberry daiquiri and a good book, after a few years of holidaying in beach resorts you may start to feel that all your holidays start to blend into one.

Summer time in Samoens: for families who dare!

Most people who have come across our beautiful little corner of the world tend to know the village of Samoens for its winter sports and access to the extensive Grand Massif ski area.  Rarely do people realise that Samoens is also a fantastic summer location for outdoor adventure activities.

Unlike its more extreme neighbours of Morzine, a magnet for downhill mountain bikers, and Chamonix, where the challenging peaks have been attracting the world’s most hard-core mountaineers for centuries, laidback Samoens offers up a mixture of mountain experiences that are perfect for mums and dads who are looking for activities to suit the whole family, from young kids to daring teenagers needing a safe environment to let loose.
