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 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 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.
