Samoëns is committed to mountain handicaps. The resort village of Haute-Savoie offers a large number of adapted infrastructures. They allow people with disabilities to access one of the many sports and cultural activities, as well as the different structures of the village.
The Tourist Office, the commune of Samoëns and the Samoëns handi-glisse association have come together to form a steering committee and have identified the offers allowing them to appreciate the village while reconciling pleasure and ease of access. An ease of access that starts with accommodation. Indeed, the Tourist Office has visited voluntary mountain accommodation (hotels, chalets, campsites …). That, in order to realize a heading which informs you on the level of adaptation of these accommodations for the people with reduced mobility.
