Guided tour of the historical and architectural heritage of the village of Samoens in English. Tours on request (minimum 3 persons) .

Discover the history of Samoëns and its famous migrant craftsmen with the guides of the Société des Maçons, an association that upholds the tradition of stoneworking in the Upper Giffre Valley. 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
