    A time capsule of a museum which truly captures the history of the area.

    The English guided tour, led by the knowledgeable and passionate Nora, is well worth the €7.50 entrance fee. And you also get a sample of local jam and cheese, with drinks.

    After an introduction from Simone the owner - with an overview of the construction of the farm house using a cleverly designed model - Nora walks you through the rooms in building itself. It felt like stepping back in time.

    The contents of the museum are fascinating, many implements need explanations as to their use, and the guide ensures that children are engaged in these descriptions and given a chance to hold them.

    This is lovely museum, a true reflection of the owners passion. It is well worth going to an English speaking tour, so visit the Tourist Information in Samoëns to check the days and timings (at the time of writing these were on Tuesday at 5pm during July and August).

    A beautifully light old church in the heart of Samoëns. The gentle chanting music you hear as you walk round is very atmospheric.

    Visit the Red Rock, everytime we are in Samoens, 8 times this year. GREAT atmosphere, great crowd, the best music, simply the best bar in France, and the owner Jerome, one top guy, friendly, generous, always great to see. Hope to be back in December, for good beer, music and frinedship. Rock on, Red Rock.

    I could not recommend this place more, having had so many good times there (alone, with friends or with family). The coffee is delicious and yes, you can finally find a place in the valley that does a delicious and proper almond flat-white!. Everything is very affordable and good quality. Popcorn vintage is surely one of the most friendly places in Samoens, and everybody who works there is very professional and welcoming (no matter who you are/where you come from, you’ll feel HOME). Perfect place to start the day around a good quality coffee, to meet friends for brunch, or to enjoy a few drinks in the afternoon/evening.

    Our favourite bar in Samoens, we always feel very welcome here and therefore keep coming back. Cocktails are definitely worth a try (strong!), and if there's a live band on make sure you turn up early for a good seat. Special mention for Anthony, he's a lovely guy, keeps a VERY clean bar and you won't be kept waiting any longer than necessary for a fresh drink.

    We hoped to enjoy the bowling on a rainy Samoens day, but the place was closed (we tried twice), didn't answer the phone and had two signs; the first saying "closed" and the second reading "resturant closed". So I guess they are closed, just not sure until when, or for good?
