Samoens is Excellent for budget family skiing. Fantastic good value self catering apartments. Village supermarket is excellent within walking distance and there is a large Carefour supermarket just outside of village Restaurants are actually very nice and great french cuisine but pricey so better for couples or a special occasion than eating out every night. Easter snow was a struggle this year 2017, beginners slopes were ice in the morning and slush/grass in the afternoon. ESF instructors are generally excellent English speakers with a high quality of teaching and knowledge and will take you to Flaine if needed for higher snow. Samoens is not really suitable for young adults looking for Apres Ski holiday but for younger families, perfect!

Samoens is a hidden gem in the French alps. A lovely traditional village offering access to a great ski resort that caters for all levels. I've been twice already and will be going back next year.
