Description

The words ‘private hamlet’ give you a clue to the exclusive, rustic-luxe nature of this French Alpine retreat in Megève. Chalet des Fermes de Marie is a large wooden chalet, built with ancient timbers on a snow-covered plateau where Heidi’s forbears tended sheep and cows for hundreds of years.

Chalet des Fermes de Marie lets you wallow in high quality hotel service, whilst enjoying the privacy and space of your own private residence. It’s available all year, and in winter you can ski to the door, dreaming of little red riding hood and Goldilocks among the old wood beams. Five minutes outside Megève, the chalet is in a private hamlet owned by a five star hotel. This means you have access to the hotel’s beautiful spa and pool, three restaurants, kids’ club, and a small army of well-trained staff. What more could you ask?

Take the hotel shuttle into town, or walk the tree-lined route to Megève with its boutiques and ski lifts. You can ski back at the end of the day to your secluded kingdom, surrounded by spectacular views of jagged peaks. Inside Chalet des Fermes de Marie you can revel in 400msq of space – a rich juxtaposition of old and new in an authentic style. Crystal chandeliers and rich fabrics cosy up against weathered oak panels, smoke-ingrained fireplaces and worn-smooth floorboards. It’s an interiors magazine dream and oozing with charm.

The heart of Chalet des Fermes de Marie is the double-height, oak-beamed lounge with its massive fireplace, and study area. Lie back in front of the crackling fire whilst a delicious dinner is prepared in the kitchen. Whether you use the hotel’s private dining service, or cook for yourselves, this is the place for long, languorous meals that go on into the small hours. The beautifully furnished dining area opens onto the terrace, so you can take that late night brandy or whisky out into the crisp night air.

With breakfast, afternoon tea, daily housekeeping and a concierge service, all you have to do is enjoy yourself. After a rigorous day on the slopes, there’s nothing better than relaxing in your own private spa. Chalet des Fermes de Marie has a Jacuzzi, a sauna, massage table and fitness area, and you can arrange for private massages, beauty treatments or yoga sessions ‘at home’.

Eating

Your stay at Chalet des Fermes de Marie includes daily breakfast, with fresh coffee and croissants to set you up for the day ahead. When you get back in the afternoon, tired and hungry, you will find afternoon tea waiting for you, full of treats to boost flagging energy levels. 

Evening meals are very much a bespoke affair for chalet guests. There are several options, all at additional cost, which means that you don’t have to do the same thing every night. If you enjoy being pampered, the hotel offers a private dining service where meals are cooked and served by hotel chefs and served in the privacy of your chalet. Just order your meals as and when.

Alternatively, you can join other guests in the hotel restaurants, for a night out that is conveniently close to home. The hotel also has a children’s buffet, so your little ones can eat early and avoid having to wait too long for their food. 

Of course, the other option is to make use of the lovely chalet kitchen yourselves and either cook up your own sumptuous suppers or request the service of a private chef to do it for you. The choice is wide open.

Kids

Keeping the family happy and entertained is a breeze at Chalet des Fermes de Marie. Within the chalet there are plenty of cosy corners for kids to play in, and all the mod cons are on hand such as wifi and a flat screen TV. Whatever you need, from baby cots and high chairs to ski hire and activity bookings, there is a concierge service on hand to help you out.

Having a daily cleaning service is a godsend when you have messy little ones around, and it is always good to know that all the five star facilities of the adjacent hotel are at your disposal. So whether it’s a snack between mealtimes, a swim in the pool or a lift into town, everything is at your fingertips.

Perhaps best of all, the adjacent hotel has a dedicated children’s concierge and a kids’ club, which can be booked in advance. Here there are activity co-ordinators, and a whole range of exciting things to do, from cookery classes to a video game zone and a mini stage for pint sized performers.
