Is this the prettiest resort in the Alps? – The Times

It is a medieval village with a classical square. An historical monument and a place where ancient stone masons used to perfect their art. Samoëns would be one of the most beautiful villages in any light; being a ski resort makes it doubly so. And it is not just any ski resort. It is part of the Grand Massif, with 265 km of piste the fifth largest ski area in France.

The region is better known to the British for purpose-built Flaine, although Samoëns is a far more appealing base. It is something of an undiscovered freeride paradise – and the resort now wants to push itself as something more than a pretty place.
