“My parents created the hotel. I carry on a tradition of welcoming and caring for our guests."
The secret of the Chalet-Hôtel Neige et Roc, The Originals Relais: "The welcome is warm and generous and the refined gourmet cuisine will awaken your taste buds," explain Françoise and Olivier. For this 4-star hotel caters to distinguished guests where they get to enjoy the warmth of a family chalet. In Samoëns, Françoise and Olivier have conjured up a world of warmth and friendliness with a touch of mountain elegance. A true cocoon, a cosy nest enhanced by breathtaking natural beauty. A place dedicated to the art of living, relaxation and well-being where life is good all year round.
Comprising two typical Savoyard chalets, this elegant 4-star hotel boasts 48 rooms and suites, 14 of which include a kitchenette. Françoise and Olivier emphasise tradition, the warmth of wood and warm colours: everything is perfectly in harmony. When the surrounding mountains are covered with snow, Françoise and Olivier's hotel becomes a cosy cocoon, where guests can be comfortable; on sunny days, it sparkles. The perfect ingredients for a pleasant and relaxing stay.
The friendly atmosphere begins early in the morning with the buffet breakfast featuring local produce. This is the opportunity to taste excellent cheeses, delicious cured meats, jams and a variety of home-made and local cakes, all with surprising flavours. The same taste sensations are on offer at the hotel bar a little later in the day with home-made cocktails being served.

What our customers say
"A short weekend stay"
We enjoyed our weekend stay at Neige et Roc. We have been a few times since 2018. Françoise and Olivier always provide a friendly welcome and are keen to help out. The family run hotel is traditionally decorated with wood panelling, mountain object d’art collections. The bedrooms are charming and comfortable and most have balconies. Breakfast is largely continental with a wide selection of fresh bread and pastries, cheese, cold meats, fruit, cereals, eggs and pancakes and a selection of teas and coffees. The dinner menu extends beyond local Savoyard food and was well prepared, cooked and presented. The bar is very well stocked and in summer these can be taken outside. The outdoor pool was a refreshing in the very warm weather we were experiencing. There was access to the indoor pool and spa. The Covid-19 precautions were well explained and we felt secure. We will definitely return separately for dinner but also for overnight stays in the future.
"A lovely mini break"
We enjoyed our stay and were made to feel truly welcome. The rooms were perfect for what we needed and the staff were always so helpful. Breakfast was delicious too! Many thanks.
"A very pleasant stay in Samoens"
My wife and I stayed for six nights at the Neige et Roc and had a very nice time. We were part of a large party of 12 people, most of whom stayed elsewhere in Samoens, so we didn't spend much time at the Neige et Roc. However, our room was very comfortable and clean; the staff were very professional and friendly; the breakfasts were good; and the pools (indoor and out) were an excellent facility. And the hotel was situated within easy walking distance of the centre of town.
"Friendly and comfortable"
A very enjoyable stay; friendly and helpful hosts; very good food and facilities; good location for accessing local activities.
"A truly wonderful experience"
Neige et Roc is one of the best hotels we've ever stayed at. Excellent,service that left took care of all our needs and left us feeling welcome and well-looked after, without feeling fussy. Excellent onsite restaurant, pools (indoor and outdoor) tennis courts and spa. All set within walking of distance of Samoen's wonderful sites.
"lovely stay, delightful owners!"
Lovely place. A couple blocks away from the busier area, which is great (if you can consider any of samoens busy at all). The owners could not have been sweeter! We arrived late. Kitchen had already closed, but they still prepared a delicious plate of veggies for us and were super friendly and kind. The rooms are comfortable, the corner room with windows on two sides could not have been better - both for views and the fresh mountain air. And with little light pollution, we could enjoy stars from the balcony. All around great stay!
"Best place in Samoëns !"
An excellent place to stay in Samoëns with gorgeous breakfast and very good restaurant. The rooms are big enough and very clean and the staff is very friendly. The atmosphere of the place is generally family-like and the place very quiet at night. To be recommended.
"Beautiful hotel and great hospitality"
We have stayed at the Neige et Roc previously and hope to return again. It is always a pleasure to stay there.
"Great Hotel for a Ski break"
Great hotel for a ski break 40m from boot room to bus stop, one of the first stops on route so get a seat on the bus for 10 min ride to Gondola. Could even get lift pass in the hotel. Nice room, excellent breakfast, small but relaxing pool and spa, good food, fantastically helpful staff.
I loved it. Great people, nice, cosy hotel, very good food, excellent location
With the elegance of a typical Savoyard chalet, these three spacious and bright seminar rooms, with plenty of daylight thanks to the bay windows facing the mountains, are ideal for organising professional events.
