La Roche is a modern and tastefully styled 4 bedroom chalet in an ideal location, set centrally in Samoëns, part of the Grand Massif ski area. We are directly behind the main street, benefitting from village-centre convenience, but also getting to enjoy the great mountain views (especially from the private hot tub!).


The chalet is also situated 200m from the free ski bus which runs throughout the day, starting before ‘first lifts’ running right into the evening.


It sleeps 8 people comfortably with 3 of the rooms having the option of a kingsize bed or 2 singles.  La Roche is the perfect size for a family get together or a group of friends, although with two en suite rooms and 2 with shared bathrooms, it has the flexibility for individual room bookings too.


The chalet has a south-facing wraparound balcony / terrace overlooking Samoëns village - for watching the ski lifts start running in the morning over a cup of coffee, basking in the summer heat, or simply watching the world go by.


We have a locked garage with heated boot warmers and plenty of ski storage.  This also doubles as secure bike storage for our summer visitors.




Samoëns is a pretty French market village, set in the heart of the stunning Giffre Valley. It is a year-round rural hub, which just happens to be situated on the fully linked Grand Massif ski area.  Boasting 265km of piste (click here for the piste map), the Grand Massif ski area has plenty for all abilities and levels. Geneva airport is 1 hour away which couldn't be more handy.


The village itself is picture postcard, with quaint shops, boulangeries, and narrow ally-ways  - all with the majestic Criou mountain towering above.  There are events put on weekly over the winter and summer seasons - from cheese or wine tasting, to concerts in the square, fireworks at Christmas or the American festival in the summer, it is a busy, happening little place!


Our great location means that you’ll be able to access all of these things on foot, and get a real feeling of village life.

After having experience working in other  chalets,  we are excited to be able to offer a more personal and bespoke service here at Chalet La Roche. They offer a concierge service, and can tailor your time away to your needs, in order that you get you want from your holiday and can truly put your feet up (when you're not on the mountain skiing!).

In the summer we offer beautiful  self-catered accommodation (with optional catering) and we can assist you with all aspects of planning your trip


Aislinn tries to source as much of her food as locally as she can.  She takes pride in using seasonal goods where possible, and uses produce from her vegetable garden, as well as foraged foods.  Red Robin Chalets only serves French wine, and the cheeses you will eat will also be French.  We love to eat meat (we really do), but in these changing times, it seems extravagant to eat meat in every course, so this year we are adding more yummy plant based dishes to our menu (no fear, there'll still be plenty there for you carnivores!). 


Here at Red Robin Chalets we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint.  We use refillable toiletries, eco cleaning products, and are actively trying to reduce our plastic waste.  All our veg waste gets composted, we recycle everything that we can. Our energy provider uses only renewable energy sources. As we are located in Samoëns village, there is no need for cars once you have arrived - everything can be accessed on foot or by the free ski buses or Petit Train.

Speak with us about getting here and we can help you find the most eco-friendly option for you or your group
