CRAVING those APRÈS VIBES??
Family Oasis Chalet St Christophe offers a stunning array of exterior facilities, space and views. Enjoy wonderful views towards the surrounding mountains including the famous Criou, the dramatic Cathédrale, and the many peaks of the Grand Massif ski area.
Without a doubt, one of the highlights is the traditional hot tub which affords fantastic views over the entire gardens towards the farmhouse. Located directly next to it, an extra large Swedish sauna is hidden away inside a renovated mazot, the perfect place to soothe tired muscles after a day on the mountains.
Our Chalet St Christophe is located in the unspoilt surrounds of historic Les Vallon d'en Bas, a quiet hamlet that boasts some of the valley’s finest traditional Savoyard architecture. Nature lies at your doorstep in this calm, unspoilt location.

SNOW CONDITIONS IN SAMOËNS IN MARCH
Samoëns and more generally the Grand Massif (Flaine) has always benefited from a superb snow record thanks to the microclimate resulting from the proximity of Mont Blanc. Snow cover on at least parts of the ski area is pretty much guaranteed from mid-december until late April. Samoëns also benefits from North-facing slopes which greatly helps to retain snow longer
