Guest Testimonials…

“We had a great holiday at Chalet Bonnefous!! The chalet is beautiful, inside and out and very well equiped and located. The staff was so friendly and helpfull and Samoens is a lovely village. We had 2 non-skiers with us, that had the best winter holiday ever, as the walking trails start only few 100 meters from the chalet! We highly recommend this chalet and hope to be back next year!!

“Le chalet Bonnefous est très confortable, parfaitement équipé, et situé à 10 minutes à peine du centre du village. Nous avons apprécié sa décoration soignée, son jardin – et les nombreux livres en anglais. Sebastian de Mountain People a été d’une parfaite efficacité et d’un grand professionnalisme du début à la fin de notre séjour. Nous espérons vivement avoir la chance de revenir une autre fois.”

August 2019 – Mathilde L. From Paris


“Fantastic house designed and decorated with style, more than well equipped and a great family feel to it. Easy access to the slopes and beautifully situated in the midst of villages that retained their original charm. Professionally serviced by a booking and property management office respectively.

March 2018 – Bart V.  from Netherlands


We spent a fantastic week at Chalet Bonnefous over the new year. The chalet is very well equiped, tastefully decorated, homely and cosy, yet spacious for all 11 of us. We were very well supported during the booking by Sebastien at Mountain People and very well looked after in resort during our stay by Graham from KPS.

The ski bus stop is approximately 100m from the door. The skiing is excellent for all abilities and very well linked to other villages. Samoens is a quaint French village with some lovely restaurants and bars – We would very much recommend Chalet Bonnefous for a relaxing family skiing holiday, and will be looking to return in the future!
