Privately owned and just one hour from Geneva airport, Villa Rose Hotel in Samoëns, is opening its fully restored doors in time for the start of the Grand Massif ski season. This recently renovated former 1900s period house is a luxury boutique hotel offering an unusual flexible proposition: the property can be booked on a per room basis or as a complete luxury 6 bedroom villa.
Samoëns is something of a hidden secret by those in the know, for skiers looking for an authentic Savoyard experience – as well as world class skiing, snowboarding and plenty of other winter activities. Perhaps a more intimate alternative to its better known Alpine neighbours, at 1,600 metres the Samoëns ski area enjoys snow coverage throughout the season and is renowned for its spring skiing. The ancient village, with its legendary stonemasons, is the only French alpine resort to be classified as a national heritage site. Its traffic-free square and cobbled streets lined with stone and timber buildings, are not short of ski boutiques and specialist shops offering alpine décor, local charcuteries, cheese, wine, pâtisseries and chocolatiers.
Spread over four floors, Villa Rose Hotel is home to four en-suite bedrooms and one two-bedroom suite, each of which has individually designed interiors using Italian linens, designer fabrics and antique furnishings.
Villa Rose Hotel is offered as bed and breakfast, half board or as a serviced villa rental with its own in-house chef on hand to create a menu of dining options from afternoon teas and picnics to four course evening dinners
B&B from €275 per room per night, half board from €325 per room per night, One week’s villa hire from €8,400
