Starting from the square with its ornamental fountain and la Grenette, the former château and stables, the deep roots of the great lime tree, the guides will help you see beyond the stones to the life of the old village huddled round the church, and to its modern development as a holiday destination in summer and winter

Group tours. All year with advanced booking.
Groups : Advanced booking only.
Completed in 1555, the church of Notre-Dame de l'Assumption in Samoëns is an architectural testimony of the work of the famous stonecutters of the village.
What strikes you when you arrive in Samoëns is the quietness and charm of the place. This semi-pedestrian village promises you a complete change of scenery in the idyllic setting of the Alps. It is the ideal place for your next visit.
In the heart of historical Samoens, the old market and the "Large Lime Tree" evoke days gone by, while still remaining a lively meeting place at the very centre of local life.
