“A great base for a skiing week with friends - great hosts and wonderful food.”
Reviewed 6 March 2018 for a stay in February 2018

We spent a great week as part of a group of three families with children from 4 to 11. Andy and Liz did a great job organising our stay beforehand (and giving us lifts to and from the ski-lift - and the airport). They were very responsive and efficient.

Everything exceeded our expectations: more food than we could manage, lovely decor and a great view from the hot tub. Chalet hosts Anthony and Becky did great meals and were great with the children. The town is a healthy 5 min walk and so you don’t feel cut off.

Having been used to ski in / out, Andy was great at shuttling us to / from the ski lift - which is otherwise 15 mins walk.

There were plenty of slopes to explore. We would love to return.

“Perfect Christmas Getaway !”
Reviewed 7 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

We have just returned from a fantastic family holiday at Chalet Orion where we celebrated a beautiful snowy Christmas.

We were a group of nine which included five children ranging from 11-17 years old. Chalet Orion, with it's warm atmosphere and inviting luxury provided us with the perfect 'home' for the week. Anthony and Becky, our Chalet hosts, took care of us admirably - the food was absolutely delicious throughout ( including a traditional Christmas feast which certainly matched anything at all you could have prepared at home !) . We were exceptionally well looked after and nothing was too much trouble. Owners Andy and Liz also went out of their way to ensure that everything was as we would want it and the daily lifts to the ski lift by Andy were very much appreciated - also the assistance with our airport transfers.

Samoens itself is a delightful French town full of character and it was a pleasure to be able to take the five minute walk from the chalet to join in the Christmas festivities that were on throughout the week.

We would return to Chalet Orion without question and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for an alpine getaway .

“Supurb”
Reviewed 28 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Just returned after a family holiday at chalet Orion and can honestly say it was amazing. The chalet itself was the perfect place to stay, with half of our party of 10 skiing and the rest just chilling... it couldn't have been better placed.

Andy and Liz were very welcoming and Andy's lifts to and from the slopes was greatly appreciated by those skiing.

Lauren and Jason prepared the most delicious food for us and nothing was too much trouble.. we cannot sing there praises enough!!

“Perfect chalet for unwinding after a hard day's skiing!”
Reviewed 6 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We would thoroughly recommend Chalet Orion as a base for a skiing holiday. We stayed in the week leading up to Christmas 2016, when the whole of Europe was struggling with a freak reduced amount of snow. But I can honestly say that we had a fabulous holiday and would all (2 adults, one 16 year old, one 18 year old) love to return. The chalet itself is very comfortable (we all loved the log fire in the evenings and the hot tub on the balcony) and the ensuite bedrooms are of a very high standard. Our chalet hosts (Lauren and Jason) were just 'naturals' at their job - food was superb - much, much better than we expected and their positive, 'can do' approach made the whole experience really enjoyable. Liz and Andy obviously set high standards for their chalets and personally make themselves available to help, answer questions, make suggestions etc. We had some great days skiing, but also (unusually for us) treated ourselves to one day chilling in the chalet/ village. If you are thinking about booking, don't hesitate - just go for it!
