La Grange-Ferme is a truly impressive converted farmhouse, which combined offers 9 bedrooms spread over more than 300m2 of pure, alpine luxury.  This stunning property combines 2 separate units, ideal for larger groups of families seeking a wonderfully spacious, convivial property while retaining their independence also.

La Grange-Ferme has been cleverly arranged over 4 floors, sleeping up to 20 guests. Oozing with sophistication and style it offers a warm, mountain character. Two stone fireplaces, exposed wooden beams and a beautiful winding staircase leading to the upper levels are just some of the properties features. La Grange-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.

Its elevated position in the hamlet of Vercland affords stunning views over the Giffre valley and Samoens centre, just 2 minutes by car. The local telecabine in winter, 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. A fantastic bar and restaurant can be found at the foot of the same piste, providing the perfect venue for some apres-ski refreshments.

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.

La Grange-Ferme combined are spread over an impressive 300m2 and 4 floors, with 3 bedroom La Ferme occupying the ground floor, and 6 bedroom La Grange occupying the first, second and third floors.

As you enter La Grange on the first floor, you are immediately drawn towards it’s central feature, a beautiful stone fireplace set in the bright and spacious open-plan living and dining room. The long wooden dining table seats large groups of 14/16 comfortably and there is also a colourful, kiddies table to the side. When it’s time to relax, lounge in front of the fire on a wintery night, or kick back in a choice of one of the comfy sofas, while enjoying a DVD or some satellite television viewing on the large, flat screen TV. There is also a great collection of books to choose from as well as games and playing cards. Wi-Fi is available.

To your right is the superbly equipped main kitchen, its stone-topped work bench providing plenty of preparation space for your group’s budding chef. The main Grange kitchen is fitted with a full-size fridge with large freezer compartment, a full-size oven and four-burner induction hob, combination oven/microwave, and dishwasher. There are ample cupboards and cabinets for storage and all the cooking and serving utensils, including a fondue and raclette set so you can enjoy some traditional Savoyard dining.

Entered via it’s own private entrance, La Ferme is just as impressive, featuring a similar open plan layout, a beautiful stone and wood surround fireplace, deep comfortable sofas and armchairs, a second large and fully equipped farmhouse kitchen, a gorgeous solid wood dining table, Smart TV, and Wi-Fi.  A utility room equipped with a combination washer/dryer is available.  

The properties are not interconnecting internally, so are accessed separately from 2 private entrances.  For groups larger than 15/16 adults, dining is not possible all at one time, due to the table sizes, but ideal for families with a separate sitting, or separate kids table, or equally for adult groups not at full occupancy.

Pets are not accepted in this property.  Please contact us for advice on pet friendly accommodation.

La Grange-Ferme is located in a quiet hamlet just a 4-minute 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 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 or black runs 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 fantastic alpine walking trails, including a 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 bars, shops, 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 Grange is also just a 5-minute drive from the village of Morillon. There, you will find even more restaurants, shops and and the beautiful Lac Bleu, which boasts an array of leisure facilities.

"La Grange is an excellent location for skiing and walking, and about 20 minutes walk to the shops in Samoens centre. The chalet is spacious, warm, comfortable and well kitted out. There were 9 of us, enough room to all sit down and not feel crowded, and the dining table is large enough for more. The lounge seating is pleasant and well arranged. We had a wonderful time meeting with our old friends."
