Apartment Buqa is in a beautiful setting in Sameons, in the French Alps. The apartment is furnished to a very high standard with everything you could wish for. The view from the balcony is stunning. We had a wonderful few days relaxing, walking and exploring the area, and then sitting outside in the main square enjoying a nice cool drink! There are some lovely bars and restaurants in the village, and a local shop selling all you could possibly need.
A perfect place in a perfect location

We had a great stay at this apartment. The owners really have thought of everything! Hoping to return next year.

Our family had a fantastic time at Apartment Buqa at the end of January. There was ample room for the 5 of us, in fact we could easily have taken a few more.
The apartment is very, very well equipped, with WiFi and smart TVs in all of the rooms and under floor heating. The place was immaculate when we arrived and the owner and manager went out of there way to ensure that everything was prepared for our stay. The owner takes a very keen interest to ensure that you have a great time, which is extremely comforting.

We stayed at Buqa for a week over new year week
It is a beautiful house and comfortably housed our 2 families, 4 adults and 4 kids
It is very close to the charming traditional village of samoens and it is a five minute walk down the hill. There is a ski bus to take you to the slopes but we preferred to walk each day as it is not too far and stretches the legs before your ski

Buqa was a great place to stay with all the comforts of home in a beautiful location. Unfortunately lacking in snow this year but still managed a bit of skiing at Avoriaz as well as the ice quads in Flaine. Would very much like to go back again with the family at a time when the snow has already fallen as Samoens is a lovely village and has a bit more character than some of the larger ski resorts.

Very tastefully furnished and well stocked apartment - with everything you need for a great time which is 2-3 mins walk to the centre of the village. Samoens is a lovely village ideally situated - with lots of places to eat and drink, a local market and fresh food - good large supermarket 5 mins away.

The apartment was exactly as promised, spotlessly clean, and every modern appliance you could ever need. It wasn't lacking anything. We met the local contact person who was extremely helpful and friendly.
The customer service proved by Elan was exceptional both in the lead up to the stay and our time there. He was extremely prompt with answering all our questions and seemed to genuinely care that we had everything we needed and that we had a good holiday.
Well done Team Buqa, what a perfect stay.

Winter in Samoens
When summer 2016 draws to a close, the winter season's snow will, as always, reign over Samoëns - one of the 5 proud resorts of the Grand Massif.
The Grand Massif is the 4th largest ski-linked area in France with 265km of pistes upto an altitude of 2500m. Flaine, Les Carroz, Morillon, Samoëns and Sixt together offer access to 144 pistes…if you’re one of those people that are overwhelmed by choice…you’re in trouble! Be prepared for lots of powder days at the summit, the Grand Massif runs, clear blue skies with sun reflecting off the snow and breath taking panoramic views that no winter wonderland postcard could ever emulate.
The Grand Massif ski domain will be open from Saturday 17th December 2016 to 17th April 2017.
A few years ago, we saw the opening of the Chariande Express Chairlift which is the Ferrari of all chair lifts: from 1600 to 2120ft in 9 minutes, leaving plenty of time for you to try out the others! Winter 2016/17 brought with it a new red piste in Samoëns that promises an "awe-inspiring panorama". There are also 3 new pistes in Flaine, adding to the reputation of The Grand Massif as “one of the world’s biggest ski areas”.
Enjoy some leisurely skiing/snow-boarding, show off your speed riding talent, take in the stunning views of the Mt Blanc mountain range from Les Grandes Platieres, spend time with the children on the nursery runs at 1600 or simply be! Skidooing, tobogganing, ski-trekking and ice-climbing are all on offer too...Samoëns has it all for the whole family.
All made complete by the vibe in the rustic village; the hustle and bustle of locals and holidaymakers strolling around the village square, gathered around a 'vin chaud maison' cart catching up with the day's events or skating in Le Patinoire till dusk; the bars, restaurants, patisseries and pizzerias lit up and in full flow, and the little trinkets, crafts and clothes shops which are like festive grottos inviting all to peruse them.
Spend adrenalin-filled days out, relax amongst the amazing scenery, spend time in the village or simply relax indoors, indulge in the Jacuzzi bath, play games on the Wii console, and just enjoy the breath taking scenery of the alpine plains from the balcony of Apartment Buqa.
