The Gooseberry Suite – Just for Couples

Enjoy peace and tranquility for those precious moments away together.  The brand new Gooseberry Suite is designed especially for couples in search of comfort and intimacy.  With a private entrance, generous living and kitchen spaces, media suite, King size bed and a divine freestanding bath, the Gooseberry suite offers all the amenities you’ll need for a luxurious romantic escape.

The Gooseberry suite is freestanding and reserved uniquely for couples, so you’re unlikely to be at risk of being disturbed by rowdy neighbours.  Simply perfect for a romantic getaway.

Ultimate Convenience & Rural Tranquility

Truemanalp is in a prime location in central Samoens, an easy 300m walk from the medieval village centre and just 100m to the foot of the Grand Massif Express cable car.

While boasting an enviably central location, Truemanalp also benefits from the privacy of being surrounded by fields, offering a genuine rural feeling right in the centre of town.  If privacy and convenience both mean a lot to you, then Truemanalp certainly delivers!

Dining For Two

Couples can easily meander into the village to enjoy drinks and dinner at one of Samoens’ many restaurants, or rustle up a cosy meal for two in the Gooseberry suite’s fully equipped kitchen.

For ultimate convenience, delicious, freshly cooked meals can also be delivered to your suite, hot and ready to eat.

Honeymoons at Truemanalp

Truemanalp also makes for a wonderful alpine honeymoon destination.  If you’ve dreamed of an active, outdoor honeymoon in the French Alps, the Gooseberry Suite might just fit the bill perfectly.

Those seeking a ski or snowboard honeymoon will adore the luxury of accessing the ski area on foot, and meandering through the medieval streets of Samoens for cosy après-ski drinks.  Meanwhile, summertime honeymooners have a whole menu of outdoor adventure activities to choose from.  Let us know you’re honeymooning and we’ll do our best to make your stay that extra bit special!
