Activities for Children in Samoens

First and foremost, it is worth noting that Samoens boasts a Famille Plus label, which identifies and acknowledges it has having adequate facilities as a resort for families with children, all year round.

Summer fun...

Summer activities with children (and families) in mind are:

  • Rock climbing
  • Rafting
  • Paragliding
  • Quad Biking
  • Hiking
  • Outings with donkeys and pony riding
  • Tennis lessons
  • Swimming pool at the Leisure Centre. 3 pools, main, beginners and paddling. With a 60m water slide.

And if that doesn't tire them out...

Tarzan-style Indiana Park is close to the village centre. Open all throughout summer, it is appealing to all those who fancy crossing tree-top bridges, climbing rope ladders and whizzing down tree-lined slopes. t: +33(0)450 74 01 88 w:

There is outdoor Ice-Skating rink - Le Patinoire - in village square, if the kids, and big kids fancy something different. It is open till 9pm in the peak seasons. Also, there are characteristic motorised trains for village tours are a real hit with children who want to explore in style. There is an outdoor playground for the younger children, just along the lake at Lac au Dames.. Also, 600 sq m of lawns to be able to take in the sun, have a picnic, and an area for volleyball, tennis and football, _ all just minutes from the village centre.

Samoens Creche

Often families with young children like the flexibility of being able to enjoy outdoor activities that aren‘t best suited for their ‘little ones’. Placing children in a creche during part of their holiday is a great option as it allows children to be looked after in a safe and stimulating environment. There is a creche/nursery/kindergarten located right in the heart of Samoens village and it is available for children aged 3 months through to 6 years old - during summer and winter seasons. Les Loupiots is a beautiful purpose-built chalet nursery, which houses facilities that are centred on child-play, such as arts and crafts, cooking, music and dance, activity gym, as well as an enclosed garden to allow children to engage in outdoor activities. In addition, if you wish to enrol your child(ren) for ski lessons, then this can be organised by the crèche, such that the ski instructors can pick up/drop off to and from the crèche. The creche can hold up to 30 children and the day is split into morning or afternoon sessions, or full days.
