Skiing in Samoens
Samoens is part of the Grand Massif Ski Area with over 265km of pistes. It is one of five resorts and is serviced by 16 different ski lifts that can accommodate up to 16,000 skiers per hour. 80% of the slopes are north facing so it retains its snow cover very well.
Samoens is very well known for its stonecutting history and the town is designated as one of the most beautiful places in all of France. It has retained much of its beauty as the popularity of Le Grand Massif ski area and its neighbour Les Portes du Soleil has only increased in recent years.
Samoens also has one of the biggest beginner skiing areas in all of France so it’s perfect for families and children. However, there are still extremely challenging slopes to tackle for the more adventurous.

Airport transfer types to suit all budgets
Share the vehicle with other passengers with similar flights & destinations.
One of the most cost effective and efficient ways of getting to the resort.
Similar to a shared transfer, except this runs to a set timetable, so you're required to book a service that works for your flight times.
Generally not door-to-door but cheaper.
Book a driver and vehicle for your sole use.
No sharing with others, no waiting at the airport and a direct door-to-door service, with no additional stops en route.
Similar to a private transfer the only difference is that it is using a larger vehicle.
Perfect for larger groups wanting to travel together.
Exec & Limousine
Enjoy vehicles such as a top-of-the-range Mercedes minivan or an S-Class Mercedes limousine.
Like a private transfer, but with the additional benefit of travelling in style.
