A tastefully renovated 3 hundred years old chalet in the forest with stunning views at 1 km from Samoens, one of the most beautiful villages in the French Alps. Huge outdoor terrace, large garden, in the middle of nature, bbq, large living in kitchen, wood burning and gas stoves, 3 fire places, 3 bedrooms and large mezzanine, old wood and lots of character, This place is for people who appreciate space, nature, stylish living, watching the stars at night and getting back to the basics.
This is a unique place as it is remote but yet reachable by car. It is a comfortable place to be with two large living areas, two bathrooms and two separate toilets, tons of space, relaxed living with two or three families. It has lots of charm (paintings, old features, old wood and fireplaces, lots of books and toys) while also giving you a real taste for remote and eco friendly living. There are deer, rabbits, wild bores and lots of birds and other wildlife in the forest. You will need to buy into making your own fires for heating and cooking and searching small woods in the forest. We leave plenty of wood for the stoves & gas bottles for quick cooking but otherwise this place is for people who like to have a unique and back to the basics experience.
It is important to know that the road to the chalet is asphalted but at the end turns into a gravel road. There are also two small dents in the road when driving up the final part but every type of car is able to make it up.
I am at a 45 minute drive from the chalet, but we have a friend who lives locally, who can help with anything that you may need instantly.
This is an eco friendly place where you will experience nature to the full. We are cut off from the main amenities so we have installed solar panels and wood burners for electricity and heating. This means this is not your usual place where you just come in and flick on the switch for heating or cooking. You will need to get to work to burn the fires and stoves which will quickly provide an amazing and lovely heat throughout your stay. We do not have a dishwasher, hair dryer, hoover or other electrical appliances. We did recently install a dish on the roof and there is a TV with international channels and wifi.

We have been in Geneva 10 years but also lived in London, Moscow and Paris. We are a family who like to share our house with others so that they can enjoy it too when we are visiting or on holiday elsewhere. We look forward to welcome you in our home!
