A fabulous stay at a farmhouse turned luxury chalet in France’s Grand Massif ski area, including chalet board, an optional six-day ski pass and all travel

For lovers of the white stuff, the ancient village of Samoëns is a breath of fresh mountain air (literally) just an hour’s drive from Geneva. So it’s easy to see why this 200-year-old farmhouse turned luxury chalet is such a deal-breaker; not least for its setting just a 10-minute stroll from the centre of the resort and within easy distance of the spectacular Grand Massif ski domain.

After days spent thrashing up and down the slopes, you’ll find a slew of impressive facilities at Chalet Ferme Saint Christophe: from a ski storage room with heated boot warmers to a peaceful spa with a sauna and hot tub. Elsewhere, there’s an extensive library for free-to-borrow books, a sitting room for board games, and a gorgeous dining room for cosying up by the fireplace and taking in the incredible views.

Good to know

Please note that children are not eligible with this offer. Full-time staff are on site at Ferme St Christophe in the morning and evening.

Samoëns and the Grand Massif ski domain

Located in the quiet Vallon area of Samoëns, you’ll be staying in part of the Grand Massif – the spectacular French ski domain located at the very centre of the Alpes, halfway between Chamonix and Geneva. Made up of five resorts: Flaine, Samoëns, Morillon, Sixt, and Les Carroz, you can expect 265-kilometres of piste and a good selection of green slopes for newbies and black slopes for experienced skiers and snowboarders (approximately eighty percent of the slopes are north-facing). For a stylish après-ski scene, the picture-perfect Samoëns appeals with historic stone buildings, wonderful gourmet food shops, exclusive boutiques, superb interior design shops, and a wonderful market selling local produce (Wednesdays only).

Accommodation

There’s just eight guest rooms in total, four of which have a south-facing balcony. Both the Standard room and the Balcony room have double beds (or twins) with crisp white cotton linens and luxurious wool and cashmere mattresses made by award-winning Harrison & Spink, and underfloor heating. Bathrooms have a lovely range of Cole and Lewis products along with mirror demister pads, shaving sockets, heated towel rails, and a quick supply of hot water from the log-fired boiler. There is super-fast Wi-Fi throughout the property serviced by three separate phone lines into the chalet.

Dining

Food is taken extremely seriously at Ferme St Christophe and all meals are created with fresh, seasonal, and locally-sourced ingredients. Kick-start your day with a choice of bacon, sausages, eggs (poached, fried or scrambled), slow roasted tomatoes and mushrooms – or go for the continental-style alternative that includes baguettes, croissants, pain au chocolats, fresh fruits, porridge, and yoghurts. All chalets work on a fully catered basis meaning that afternoon teas and hearty three-course dinners are included. There is also an unlimited drinks service (beer, wine and soft drinks) which is not just limited to meal times.

Spa

For those who want to top off exciting on or off-slope action with well-deserved rest and relaxation, the peaceful Mazot Spa features a traditional 16-seater Swedish sauna with fabulous views of the mountains. There’s also an outdoor hot tub (seats up to eight people) and a large private garden for afternoon chilling in the summer or obligatory snowman-building in the winter.

Location

Ferme St Christophe is located in the Vallon area of Samoëns, just a 10-minute stroll from the centre of the resort. The complimentary ski bus stop is 100 metres from the chalet (alternatively, there’s a private driver service that operates from 8am to 10am and from 3pm to 7pm). You’ll also be just an hour’s drive from Geneva where must-dos include watching the Jet d'Eau spew water 459-feet into the air, visiting the Palace of Nations (home to the United Nation's European office), and spending time browsing the boutiques of Place du Bourg-de-Four in the Old Town.
