Brand new for Summer 2024! Chalet Rufo - Apartment 1 is an impressive 3 bedroom apartment boasting a desirable location just 200m from the high speed 10 seater ski lift in the quaint hamlet of Vercland, Samoëns

Situated in a converted 18th century barn consisting of three other apartments (one of which is for occasional use by the owner), Chalet Rufo - Apartment 1 has been meticulously renovated and finished to a high standard by its owners to create an impressive 86m2 property. The apartment delicately balances modern style and comfort with a splash of luxury, while maintaining hints of the building's agricultural past. Gorgeous original wood hand-crafted by local carpenters, exposed beams, and intricate stonework, in combination with modern comforts such as a quality bespoke kitchen, comfortable beds, quality linen and soft furnishings, underfloor heating, and a warm welcoming ambience.

The apartment boasts a highly desirable location in a peaceful and scenic hamlet, just 200m from a lift and 300m from a ski bus. It remains just a short drive from Samoëns village, where a world of year-round amenities, and attractions await.

To the front of the property, a garden with lawn is the ideal spot to enjoy the mountain environment whether in winter or summer.

The property has the environment at its core with a heat pump providing efficient underfloor heating in winter, and cooling in summer. The renovation project used 60% original wood, and a high level of insulation makes for a cosy stay.

Breakfast deliveries can be provided by the chalet managers, and a mid-week clean is included in the weekly price.

Chalet Rufo - Apartment 1 can be combined with Chalet Rufo - Apartment 2, located directly above, and sleeping an additional 2/4 people in one bedroom.

Please note that the Vercland ski lift is subject to a closure date one week prior to the Samoëns ski lifts, with a replacement ski bus service in place to the Samoens telecabine.
