Chalet Ferme de Marie is an elegant, sociable and relaxed 'home from home'. It is full of traditional alpine charm both inside and out, offering its guest a truly magical mountain experience in a typical chocolate box style.

The chalet can be found in a peaceful setting in the heart of the Fermes de Marie private hamlet, just a few minutes’ walk from the centre of Megeve. Near to the chalet is the 5* luxury Hotel ‘Les Fermes de Marie’, here you will find the lovely Pure Altitude Spa which includes an indoor pool, inside and outside Jacuzzis and numerous beauty treatments which you are more than welcome to use. You have the flexibility of dining at the hotel in one of their charming restaurants or you may chose to have a chef cook for you in the comfort of your own chalet. Breakfast and afternoon tea are included in the basic price and are served in the chalet. The chalet is set over three floors and every inch of the 400sq m area is beautifully decorated with a warm and contemporary colour scheme and sumptuous fabrics to match. The master bedroom alone occupies 50 sq. m over one entire floor, it has an open bathroom and large dressing area and the views over to the Massif du Jaillet are just magnificent. There are four further bedrooms, three of which are at garden level and all are equipped for pure comfort and cosiness. In the centre of the chalet is a spacious lounge area with exposed beams, a beautiful wood fireplace and a study area in the corner. The adjoining dining room is the perfect place to gather with friends and family to enjoy a delicious meal and a glass or two of fine wine and recount the stories from the days’ events on the slopes. The private spa (Jacuzzi, sauna, massage table, fitness machine) also offers further opportunity for relaxing.

Helicopter/Paragliding/ Hot Air Ballooning - If you fancy a bit of the high life whilst in Megeve you can pop to the local flying school and purchase either a helicopter trip or a hot air balloon trip through the mountains. For those a little more daring you can book a paragliding flight from the top of the mountain

Visit the Reindeer Farm - Take a trip to the local reindeer farm, feed them their lunch then have yours in the comfort of their yurt

Travel by horse and cart to the local farm - Be taken on a tour of the local town before heading to the local farm to try some of their locally produced cheese and meat

Cooking lessons - Having a go at cooking the local Savoyared dishes to try and impress your friends when you get home is the challenge. With a fully instructed evening and getting to eat whatever you cook it is certainly something different to do

Casino - Based in the centre of resort you could walk out very much up after your visit

Cinema - With three cinemas to choose from there is always one that is close to where you are staying. Showing some of the latest films it is a lovely cosy way to spend the evening or even a white out day

Bowling Alley - For an active indoor evening you could make a visit to the local 8 lane bowling alley. Also equipped with some vintage video games it proves to be entertaining for all the family

Nightclub - If you want to party the night away there are four different nightclubs to choose from. Many of them being open to the early hours, if you want your après to go on into the night, it certainly can do here in Megeve

TIPPING SUGGESTIONS
In restaurants a service charge is built into menu prices. However, it's customary to round up amounts when paying the waiter or waitress if you're happy with the service. This means that you might hand the server EUR 50 for a EUR 47 meal. If you're paying by credit card, hand the server a cash tip of up to 5%. For Taxis as in restaurants, round up or add 5% when you're happy with the service. Tips to your chalet staff are entirely at your discretion.

WEATHER

The villa

Because everyone’s concept of a villa holiday is different, we have created a formula designed to offer privacy, flexibility and the freedom to run your own holiday or call upon us to help open up a world of possibilities. Our villas are normally rented on a villa-only weekly basis and are ideal for those seeking independence and privacy. We’re on call in case you need us and we provide a change of towels and bed linen during the week, but otherwise there no inclusions. 

A&K Concierge upgrade

For additional support, comfort and a slice of pampering why not upgrade to our A&K Concierge service. Included is an airport welcome on arrival with assistance for onward transportation; the services of an A&K Concierge – whose local knowledge provides you with invaluable assistance and recommendations; an orientation of the local area; a fully stocked drinks fridge; maid service; the ingredients for your first evening’s supper and breakfast delivered on the first morning of your stay. For full details of concierge inclusions speak to an A&K Travel Consultant on 0845 618 2205.

The finishing touches

Ever dreamt of driving through the Chianti hills in a red Ferrari, or along the Moyenne Corniche to Monaco in a Bentley? How about sailing along the Cote d'Azur to St Tropez in a private yacht or speed boat? Sometimes the home is all that you need, but if you're lured into culture, excitement, activity, improving your cooking or simply dabbling in landscapes, then speak to one of our Villa Specialists for an insight into what we can arrange. These are what we call our ‘Finishing Touches’.

The list is by no means exhaustive and we always welcome requests, however obscure you may think they are! Our local offices enable us to control the quality of the services on offer and the depth of knowledge our local teams have is impressive. Our aim is to provide guests with the authentic sights, flavours and experiences of the region they are staying in.

If you would prefer to discuss your specific requirements, whether it’s in relation to the property or about your stay in general, please do contact us using the Enquire page or please do give us a call for a chat.
