Samoens Vacations: Things to see while on vacation in Samoens Rhone Alps


Located on the Swiss border, Samoens is a popular vacation destination regardless of the season. The town center is closed to cars, but it makes for a great evening strolling and shopping destination. From there, tourists can also see the giant lime tree which was planted in 1438 and is now the centerpiece of the town.

During the winter months, skiers can ride a lift to the top of the nearby mountains. While there are enough challenges to keep advanced skiers interested, beginners will have plenty to do as well. Adventurous animal lovers can also try out some skijoring, which is an activity in which a person on skis is pulled along by horses.

When the warmer weather comes, the hills open up for hiking. Trails weave through the forests and countryside, and this can be one of the best ways to tour the Chapels of Samoens. Nine of these churches, as well as innumerable small shrines, dot the countryside and while most of them were built in the 1600s, one dates back to the Tenth Century. Each chapel is different but all show off the great skill of the Samoens craftsmen. Surrounding the chapels are small hamlets whose residents still live and work as their ancestors did.


Samoens is a small stone village located in the northern part of France, very close to the Swiss Border. Surrounding the town is a peaceful green valley that extends along the Giffre River. On either side rise up the beautiful Grand Massif mountains. The atmosphere here is different that what you will find down the road at Chamonix. It is more laid back, more country, a slower pace. The center of town has a beautiful town square built by hand from the stone masons who built the city. Nowadays, you will find gourmet shops and markets lining the streets.
