Chalet Frahans is a stunning and spacious 4 /5 bedroom chalet ideally located between the village and the ski lift.
An absolutely beautiful chalet, built with charming touches in wood and stone, only a 2 minute walk from the centre of Samoens.
You will feel like royalty while staying in Chalet Frahans! It’s situated in an enviable location, less than 400 metres from the town square, and only 800 metres to the Grand Massif Express lift. The free ski bus stop is only 100m away. The mixture of original stone work and Spruce wood, together with contemporary fixtures and fittings, give the chalet a spacious, stylish and sublime feel.
On the ground floor you enter into an impressive triple aspect living area, with corner sofa and imposing open stone fireplace. The many windows allow natural light to flood in, and in one corner there is a dining area, with seating for 10 guests. The kitchen is separate; and has patio doors that lead straight onto the outdoor eating area. The kitchen is equipped with everything you could need, with plenty of workspace and a professional range cooker with two ovens. Also on this floor is a cosy en-suite bedroom with en-suite.
The sweeping wooden staircase takes you to three further bedrooms. The master suite is zoned into 2 areas – a gorgeous bathroom, semi open to the bedrooms with doors opening onto a south facing balcony. The other two bedrooms on this floor have charming features, with wooden beams, and a dressing area.
On the top floor, there is a very impressive space with leather sofas to relax in and watch television. There is sleeping for 2 people on sleigh beds.

Beautiful design aplenty in wood and stone, tasteful artwork, although newly built the chalet feels like a real Savoyard farmhouse.

We stayed at Frahans over half term 2019 and were 4 adults and 4 children (13,13, 11 and 9). This is a really lovely chalet and the service provided by Liz and Andy was excellent. Frahans is very spacious and is a very solid chalet (ie we could not hear the children in every room!). The heated floors downstairs were great (there are thermostats in every room so everyone slept well) and the kitchen is extremely well equipped - really lovely tableware and glasses. Beds are very comfortable with very good quality linen. It's even nicer than the photos suggest! There is covered parking outside and we walked every morning across the field at the back of the house to the ski hire shop at the lift where we left our skis and boots (we hired the children's ski equipment and were able to leave our own kit with theirs). This usually took 10mins with children, but is absolutely flat and with lovely views so was no hassle. Ski school meets at the top of the bubble lift and was very easy (we used 360 who were excellent). The ski area is great both on and off piste - Flaine is huge! Some lovely mountain restaurants. We cooked most evenings - slightly more than planned as all restaurants were booked all week due to half term (we would book in advance in future). The location is great - close to both town and lift. Our 2 13 year olds especially loved the den room on the top floor with a TV/netflix - we loved having an adult space downstairs for a glass of wine before dinner!
We would absolutely recommend Purechalets and Frahans as a place to stay!
