“Couldn't ask for anything more”
Reviewed 14 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed at Buqa for two weeks and loved every moment. The apartment is spacious and comfortable and every bit as good as the photos suggest. Spread over three floors, the apartment would more than comfortably accommodate a party of eight, without anyone having to sleep on the sofa in the lounge!
We loved the view from the terrace and balcony, looking down over Samoens, and sat and watched the spectacular sunset most evenings. Having access to a garage was great for bike storage (and repairs) and the entertainment facilities offered were appreciated and far exceeded expectations.
Communication with Elan before we arrived was easy, friendly and straight forward and Gilles was the perfect host in resort, for whom absolutely nothing was too much trouble. The service provided also included offering a midstay linen and towel change - which, when staying somewhere for two weeks, should be standard, but rarely is, and was therefore much appreciated.

“Great Stay at BUQA!”
Reviewed 19 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had an excellent stay at BUQA! We’ve just got back.
It is fully equipped and it has plenty of space; and a fab balcony that overlooks the town and the mountains. Samoens was a pleasant surprise to us; having never been before. We hired downhill bikes and went on the Grand Massif Express to the top. Having a washing machine enabled us to clean our biking gear for the next day’s use and after a day of pedalling the Jacuzzi bath was heaven! There was a lot of entertainment going on in the centre when we were there so being able to walk into town was convenient. We would definitely stay again at BUQA, Elan made it very easy to book and Gilles was available to assist us at the property if we needed anything.

“Best place to stay in Samoens!”
Reviewed 21 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Stayed here in march for snowboarding holiday, absolutely great week! Could not fault accommodation at all! Set over 3 floors twin beds on bottom, double bed middle and 3 singles on top floor. Large screen TV's in each room with Boxee and PS3/Wii set up! Very short walk to the village and if you wanna stay healthy ski lift is just within walking distance. Definitely will be coming back !

“Modern well equipped apartment”
Reviewed 27 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Spacious apartment set over 3 floors with separate kitchen and living area. Felt like a home with well stocked kitchen and lots of technology. Good sized bedrooms and a bathroom with a bath! Enjoyed drinks on the balcony after hard day skiing. Gilles very welcoming and helpful. A car is necessary to get to the ski lift.
