There is no place quite like Samoens. It has the infrastructure, restaurants, apres-ski, endless ski trails and feathery powder to compete with the best known ski resorts in Europe but it also has unmatched historical character and an authentic sense of traditional alpine village life. France's only ski resort which is also an official national historical treasure, as categorised by the Caisse National des Monuments Historiques, Samoens' collection of ancient churches, its traditional marketplace, quaint stone buildings and spectacular natural surroundings are popular attractions in themselves. The skiing opportunities combined with this historic charm that make Samoens unique are situated within the Grand Massif ski area and offer over 250 km of skiable trails. Samoens provides endless amusement for skiers of all levels. Beginners are well catered for, intermediate skiers enjoy long, wide runs passing gorgeous scenery such as the 14 km blue Les Cascades run alongside the Lac de Gers, while experts are challenged by some exceptional off-piste slopes, including 800 m of powder at the Gers bowl.
