A dynamic ski resort...

In the Valley of the Giffre, famous for the beauty of its landscapes, Samoëns is easy to reach by car from Lyon or Geneva in less than an hour and a half. Near Morillon, Sixt Fer à Cheval, Flaine and Les Carroz d'Arâches, the Haute-Savoie resort is part of the Grand Massif ski area. Well known for its exceptional snow and sunshine, it includes 265 km of slopes which will thrill experienced skiers... and the most novice! The area specially dedicated to beginners is one of the largest in France. Nestled in a majestic setting of unspoilt nature, Samoëns is an ideal destination for outdoor activities. Downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, ski touring, snowshoeing, pony sledging, snowmobiling, free-riding, ski joering, biathlon, ice skating... welcome to the land of Nordic activities!

Yet, summer has nothing to envy to winter. The energy of the resort continues well beyond the winter season. Once undressed from its coat of snow, it reveals breathtaking panoramas. Lovers of wide open spaces will enjoy beautiful hikes along the Giffre or at the Lac des Dames. In the heart of an exceptional natural heritage, families are tempted by sporting, unusual or contemplative activities such as mountain biking, paragliding, rafting, trail running, fishing, climbing, paddling or even speleology in the 2nd deepest chasm in the world (Jean-Bernard chasm).

No matter what the season, the change of scenery is there!

An Authentic Village...

Samoëns is the home of the stone masons and owes its true charm to its unique traditional architecture. Protected from massive urbanisation, this resort has kept its village spirit. Picturesque and welcoming, this medieval-looking village has a remarkable cultural heritage. The old covered market, the church and the big lime tree in the historic heart of the village are witnesses to its ancestral past. A real invitation to a romantic stroll, its botanical garden Jaÿsinia (classified as a " Remarkable Garden of France ") with its 2,400 varieties of alpine and mountain plants will delight all ages.

MGM's sole aspiration is to offer you the best of the mountains. The Haute-Savoie constructor was drawn to the authenticity, dynamism and natural setting of Samoëns. This is why MGM chose this home for the Résidence Alexane. Now, he is reaffirming his connection to the resort with a new development: Chalets Bérénice.
