The Lazy Labrador

There is no place quite like the Lazy Labrador. Complete with outdoor 'mazot' bedroom (cabin), this charming 18 Century farmhouse has recently been renovated to have all modern comforts and authentic style while retaining its rustic beauty. It is situated at an altitude of 1200 metres, just up from the historic town of Samoens, in a gorgeous rural hamlet, hidden away from the hustle and bustle of the town below.

It is conveniently located a short 10 minute drive from the town centre and the ski lift connecting you to the Grand Massif domain, which boasts some of the best skiing in the world. Simply step outside the door and you’ll be on a fantastic snow-shoeing/Nordic skiing route. In the summer, this house is a hub for adventure sports such as hiking, mountain biking, climbing and paragliding.



Sleeps 6 – 9 people. Bedrooms include:
  • Chamois: Master bedroom with ensuite. There is room for a travel cot or extra camp bed (provided).
  • Eagle’s Nest: Triple bedroom with one double bed on a raised platform and 1 single bed below
  • Marmotte: Comfortable single room or child double with pull-out bed
  • Outdoor Cabin: Separated from the house, this is a true romantic getaway. This bedroom is cosy and warm in winter with heating and electricity but is basic with no water or bathroom.
Other rooms:
  • Living room – No TV but an extensive record collection, boardgames and free, fast wifi. Also plenty of room to sit and read by the fire, a powerful nordic woodburner
