La Grange 1767 Samoens The open plan living dining and kitchen areas with wonderful mountain views

La Grange 1767 is a boutique alpine barn, carefully designed to mix the beautiful original style of this ancient building with modern comfort and style. Spread over 60m2 (6m2 less than 1.8m high) and with 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, La Grange is a cool and contemporary newly renovated property. Situated in a quiet, idyllic and elevated position in Verchaix, close to the resorts Samoens and Morillon in the Grand Massif. The owners have ensured every piece of this beautiful old wooden frame have remained, plus used other traditional materials such as the wooden shingle roof, and up cycling the exterior wooden panels to further enhance the interior. Originally built in 1767 as a barn for making wine, cider and eau de vie, the barn has been renovated to preserve the amazing charm of the old building and combine it with a modern style, using shades of grey, black and white. The views are truly fabulous through the extensive use of large widows and from the terraces, giving you a really unique independent mountain retreat sleeping 4/5 guests in designer comfort.

Flexible catering options are available by the owner on-site.  Contact us for more details.
