Where do we start...the best ski/board holiday ever! The staff at the chalet were very friendly and really looked after us - the food was amazing! The slopes themselves were well suited to beginners and intermediates with loads of long, wide runs to keep us ocupied. All in all, a great holiday and we will be back!

"Couldn't ask for a better chalet" This was the second time that our family of 5 have been to Chalet Isabella. This time we took another family with us as well. Sarah Jane, Jimmy and their kids made us feel welcome and part of the family, doing everything within their power to make our stay wonderful Lovely rustic farmhouse, comfortable rooms, excellent food and great knowledge of the mountains and local area. We will be back again next year, and the year after, and so will the other family we took with us. Cannot recommend this place highly enough.

We stayed at Chalet Isabella for four nights. The location is perfect. Near enough to the local towns for a day-trip, near mountains for hiking, outside the village in an attractive hillside setting. Our room was clean and comfortable, with a valley/mountain view. No negatives; a great visit.

"Fantastic chalet - we will be back" We have just returned from our third stay at Chalet Isabella and can't recommend it enough. The recently refurbished rooms are fabulous; the food was delicious and plentiful and best of all we were made to feel truly welcome. The owners seem to get the balance absolutely right between being friendly and social without being intrusive. Our daughter (8 years old) became instant best friends with the owner's daughter Isabella who I assume the chalet was named after. The couple who own the chalet were always happy to ski with us and show us the best runs. Nothing seemed too much trouble for them. The Chalet is quietly located which suits us perfectly. The rooms are generously sized, tastefully decorated and many had excellent views as far as Mont Blanc. The communal areas are comfy with roaring fires. Samoens is a traditional French ski town with plenty of skiing for all abilities and has become a firm family favourite and we remain regular vistors.
