Villa Rose

Samoens, Haute-Savoie

Unconventional, colourful style in central Samoëns with super views of the mountains, designed rooms, local food and friendly staff


5 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 – 4


Don’t be fooled by the perfectly typical exterior of this 1900s Alpine villa set back from the busy road and looking innocent behind wooden shutters and box hedges. Step inside to four floors of precisely designed rooms with unusual ornaments, feathery lampshades, bright modern colours – silver, black, lime green, bright pink. A large sitting room in cool greys and creams has plenty of comfy seating, a warming log fire, stained roses by a local artist on the floor, silvery reindeer on the walls; the sun room is off here with long views facing east. Upstairs is the dining room where you eat under the steely eye of a cow’s head sculpture, or out on the terrace in summer months. Bedrooms differ in style, but all have stunning beds, fine Italian linen and towels, robes, slippers, TVs and bathroom treats. Staff are laid-back and friendly, breakfast is flexible and includes Welsh rarebit or sausage and bacon hash, coffee and tea are available all day and there’s an honesty bar. A spoiling place from which to ski (car to main lift included of course), or enjoy summer.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Joann Tone

  • The high speed lift in Samoens takes you to some of the highest skiing in the Alps. The Grand Massif, with 265km of pistes, offers some of the best runs in Europe. This is the fourth largest ski-linked area in France with an excellent snow record.
  • Villa Rose sits in the very center of Samoens, a ski resort that offers an authentic Alpine experience and is the only French mountain resort to be classified as a French national heritage site. Famous for it's ancient lime tree and the Jaysinia Garden.
  • The traffic free square and main streets, lined with stone and timber buildings, are full of chic interior shops, cheese and wine, charcuteries, pattissieries and chocolatiers. Every Wednesday the street market dominates the village. A foodies delight!
  • Samoens is a year round outdoor playground with stunning scenery. hundreds of hiking trails for all abilities taking you past stunning waterfalls and wildlife. Road biking and mountain biking both are very popular. Think Tour de France!
  • Winter is not just for skiing. Only minutes out the Villa front door and you are cross country skiing, snow shoeing or enjoying the new large outdoor skating rink!
