28 La Jaÿsinia botanic garden
This alpine botanic garden was set up in 1906 by Marie-Louise Cognac-Jaÿ who founded La Samaritaine department store in Paris. It is an exceptional garden.<br/>On 1st July 1838, a little girl called Marie-Louise Jaÿ was born in Samoens. She was destined to leave her mark on the village- and on Paris! At the age of 15, she set off to try her luck in the capital, where she met and married Ernest Cognacq. Together, they founded La Samaritaine, one of the city's largest department stores. It was an immediate success.
Marie-Louise and Ernest, who were childless, found themselves with a huge fortune and they spent the rest of their lives giving to worthy causes.
However, they never forgot the village where Marie-Louise was born. In 1906, they created the Jaÿsinia botanic garden as a mark of her love for the village.
It is an exceptional garden which is now classified as a "Jardin Remarquable" and is scientifically managed by the National History Museum.
Carved out of the south-facing side of the mountain, overlooking the village, La Jaÿsinia covers an area of 3,7 hectares on steeply-sloping terrain (there is a difference of 80 metres between the top and the bottom of the garden).
It is the only botanic garden of its kind in the Alps, containing no less than 5000 varieties of mountain flowers from all 5 continents, as well as a laboratory where wide-ranging research is carried out. As such, it is a place of study and a haven of tranquillity where people can come to escape from their stressful everyday lives. It is also a "must" for anyone spending time in Samoens. A walk in this south-facing garden is a pastoral delight. The narrow path winding its way up the mountainside passes waterfalls and fountains before reaching the ruins of the 12th century Tornalta castle and a 13th century chapel. The higher one goes, the more panoramic the view of the small town below. This is indeed a walk worthy of the finest paintings by romantic landscape artists.
29 Joux Plane Lake
This lake accessible by car will be the ideal partner for the whole family. Fishing, walks in the middle of the mountain pastures and the pleasure of being face to face with the cows.<br/>This lake located between Samoëns and Morzine will allow you to recharge your batteries in a gentle mountain setting. Activities : fishing (map available for purchase on site), walks and hikes: marked itineraries. Cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in winter.

31 The large lime tree
In the heart of historical Samoens, the old market and the "Large Lime Tree" evoke days gone by, while still remaining a lively meeting place at the very centre of local life.<br/>The "Gros Tilleul" (large lime tree), which symbolises the town of Samoens, was planted in 1438 to celebrate a ruling handed down by Duke Amadeus VIII of Savoy, stating that the inhabitants of Samoens owned the Frétérolle, Chardonnière, Vigny and Cuidex alpine meadows in the neighbouring Manche valley. The "Gros Tilleul" is quite remarkable for its age and size. This famous landmark has been immortalised by numerous local authors, poets and musicians through the ages.
