From the electrically heated ski-boot storage to clean white sheets and towels, apartment Buqa offers welcome comfort and luxury after a great day's skiing on the Grand Massif.
We loved: the high tech: from kitchen to entertainment, this apartment lacks nothing - even includes a welcome jacuzzi bath and underfloor heating - not to mention the awesome wood burning fire place!
We were impressed by the cleanliness and high level of maintenance.. not to mention the brilliant service and friendliness from both owner and caretaker.

We had a wonderful week at the Buqa chalet. We received a warm welcome from Gilles and had all the information beforehand from Elan. Everything was at hand in the chalet and facilities close by. We had a great week of skiing in the beautiful and extensive Grand Massif area and would very much recommend staying at the Buqa Chalet.

The apartment was spotlessly clean, well equipped and everything worked. The location is convenient for the village but quiet, with no passing traffic.
There is a log fire which is nice to sit round but there is no need to light it for heat as the underfloor heating is very effective.
We were two couples and a toddler and had plenty of room. Only slight critcisms would be storage if more people stayed, and the stairs to the second floor are steep...

We stayed at Buqa for a week early January 2014. What appealed to us initially was price, location and the seperate TV/ gaming area for the kids. When we arrived our boys (aged 9 and 5) were very excited at the prospect of playing the PS3 and Wii consoles. For the adults there is hard drive set up with 250 odd movies which we thoroughly enjoyed watching with a glass of wine/ beer in front of the open fire. There's plenty of fire wood (included in price) in the garage which was very convenient...
Charmaine & Family | January 2014
We spent Christmas 2013 in Samoens as an extended family and I booked Buqa for some of my family members. It's located within a development of new chalets and we all stayed next to each other, in and out of all our apartments...

The process for booking, collecting keys etc was all seamless which was great. The property itself is lovely in an excellent location with a view of the village below. It is only a couple of minutes walk down to the village but a bit longer back up the hill! Samoens itself is really nice with plenty going on in July including Bastille Day fireworks while we were there...
Ruth Obrien and Family | August 2013
This is a great place to stay. Very nice chalet with excellent facilities. The movies box is the best (especially with staying with a toddler!!) They had everything we needed including a cot, high chair and baby gates! Very impressed with Buqa! Elan was fantastic, checking we arrived there and home safely. Very nicer person indeed!

Samoens winter 2014/2015
When summer 2014 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 20th December 2014 to 20th April 2015 .
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 2012/13 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.
