La Ferme is a luxurious chalet apartment, offering guests 100m2 of beautifully renovated, farmhouse living. This typically Savoyard, yet stylishly chic 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment sleeps up to 7 guests in comfort.  Situated in the beautiful and quiet hamlet of Vercland, just 4 minutes’ walk from the Vercland telecabine and hamlet where you'll find a bar and 2 restaurants, or 2 minutes drive to the centre of Samoens.  The local telecabine, chosen by many locals for its' limited queues, takes you directly to Samoens 1600, ensuring instant access to the Grand Massif ski area.  Depending on conditions you can ski the red run down to within 400m of the chalet.  This run has been improved with the addition of plenty of new snow cannons. Please note that the Vercland ski lift is subject to a closure date one week prior to the Samoens ski lifts, with a replacement ski bus service in place to the Samoens telecabine.  During summer it is possible to walk to and from Samoens following a stunning trail taking approximately 25 minutes.

La Ferme is located on the ground floor of a stunning farmhouse conversion, which affords views over the Giffre valley. Its magnificent, newly renovated interior has been stylishly designed to the highest quality and detail, ensuring maximum comfort throughout. A central stone fireplace, exposed stone wall and quality furnishings really add to the apartment’s classic, alpine feel. La Ferme is the perfect mix of Savoyard charm and pure luxury; your definite home away from home for your winter or summer holiday in the Alps.

This property is privately owned and has been carefully selected to be in Alps Accommodation’s premier portfolio. It has a Sunday changeover day, however in low season and for last minute bookings, flexible arrival day and length of stay may be available. Contact us for more information.

Enter La Ferme through its ground floor entrance from the garden, and be immediately taken away by the purely Savoyard feel of this luxurious farmhouse apartment. Spread across 100m2, this beautifully renovated apartment consists of 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a bright and large open-plan kitchen, dining and living area.  All of which have been finished to the highest quality and detail, by local artisans.

A wide entrance corridor, with plenty of hanging space for coats, leads past the first ensuite bedroom and utility room up to the main living space. Here, the central feature is the beautiful stone and wooden surround fireplace. Sit back and relax in one of three cosy armchairs or the giant two-seater sofa. Enjoy the smart TV, watch a DVD, choose from a great selection of books, games and playing cards, or take advantage of the free Wi-Fi Internet access.

At the other end of this luxurious space is the superbly equipped kitchen and open-plan dining area. The clean, white wall with its exposed stone, and three large kitchen windows looking out onto the fields and mountain behind the farmhouse, make for a bright and luminous space to enjoy your meals together. There is a large, wooden dining table with ample seating for 7 plus an additional breakfast bar with seating for two. The kitchen itself is a chef’s delight, with masses of preparation space, including a long, stone-topped workbench and ‘island’ with built in drawers that are filled with all the cooking and serving utensils you could possibly need. There is even a fondue and raclette set so you can try your hand at some classic Savoyard cuisine. There is an American style fridge-freezer, full-size electric fan oven and four-burner induction hob, as well as a combination oven/microwave and dishwasher. Two steps lead down from the kitchen/ dining space to the second and third bedrooms, the perfect place to retire after a long, enjoyable day on the mountain. The second bathroom is also located in this area.

La Ferme has private, off-road parking, a large and secure ski locker with heated boot rack and also benefits from a lovely outdoor space. There is a large picnic table beside an authentic stone basin with fresh water running direct from the source, where you can enjoy the summer evenings looking out over the stunning Giffre valley below.

La Ferme boasts 3 spacious bedrooms, all of which have been furnished with only the highest quality items and with a design detail that really adds to the charm and authentic feel of this purely, alpine retreat. Bedroom 1 is a king bedroom (bed 160cm x 200cm) and is located just off the main entrance. There is plenty of room to unpack with under bed storage space, a large wardrobe and small dresser. There is also a TV for DVD viewing. The room has its own private bathroom with WC, and bath with overhead shower. This spacious ensuite is beautifully decorated with porcelain basin and wooden vanity unit, as well as heated towel rail. Gorgeous tiles, a large bay window and high ceiling really add to the feeling of space and luxury.

Bedrooms 2 and 3 are located on the far side of the apartment, behind and separate from the main living and dining space. Bedroom 2 is a second, luxurious king size room fitted with large wardrobe and wooden bench seat. Its polished floors, solid wood furnishings and the smallest decorative details ensure maximum quality and comfort. Bedroom 3, a triple with a single bed and full-size bunk bed, is located just next door. This room is another perfect example of ‘cosy-savoyard’, the alpine charm reflected once again in quality furnishings and small touches like the log reindeer in the bay window, and winter forest themed bedding. These two bedrooms share the stylish second bathroom located in the corridor.

La Ferme has off-road parking, a large and secure ski/bike locker with heated boot rack.  The apartment also benefits from a lovely  garden space to the front of the property allocated especially for the apartment guests and enjoying the sun from late morning to evening. There is a table set beside an authentic stone basin with fresh water running direct from the source, where you can enjoy the evenings months looking out over the spectacular views of the Giffre valley below, and across to Samoens mountain peaks.

La Ferme is located in a quiet hamlet just 4-minutes’ walk from the Vercland telecabine. Surrounded by nature the property is located in a stunning farmhouse conversion, which offers magnificent views over Samoëns and the Haute Giffre valley. The village of Samoëns itself is only 2km or a short drive away.  This convenience combined with the chalet’s enviable on-mountain position makes it the ideal year-round holiday destination.

Ideally located for winter sports enthusiasts, depending on snow conditions you can ski Vercland’s red run down to within 500m of the chalet. Alternatively take the telecabine.  Our recommended ski hire shop, which is located at Samoëns 1600 is right opposite the top of this lift. Guests benefit from free ski lockers so there’s no need to take skis and boots back to the chalet. During winter there is a free ski bus, which transports guests to Samoëns and Morillon. Buses run during the day and early evening only and leave from in front of the Vercland telecabine.

Vercland also has an excellent bar / restaurant. Located a mere 4-minute walk from the chalet, La Reposette is open all day for meals and with its cosy log fire it’s a warm and welcoming choice.

For your summer holidays, the chalet provides direct access onto a number of stunning alpine walking trails, including a pretty route to Samoëns, which takes around 25 minutes. A variety of popular mountain bike routes are also easily accessed from the chalet. Road cyclists can enjoy the winding climb from the chalet up to Samoëns 1600, or try the famous Col de Joux Plane on the opposite side of the valley.

Samoëns village boasts many shops, bars and restaurants, as well as an impressive ice skating rink, the picturesque Jaÿsinia Botanical Gardens, and the wonderful medieval town square with its beautiful church, ancient buildings and bustling Wednesday morning market.

La Ferme is also just a 5-minute drive from the village of Morillon. There, you will find even more shops and restaurants and the beautiful Lac Bleu, which boasts an array of leisure facilities including swimming, tennis and a kids park and inflatables area.
