This 200-year-old Savoyard farmhouse and its cowshed have been beautifully converted into a contemporary chalet with spectacular views and extremely welcoming hosts.
Andy and Lorraine’s sumptuous and locally sourced breakfasts include cereal, yogurts, homemade jams, pastries and traditional grain bread from the best baker in the valley, plus hot dishes using eggs from the chickens. Upstairs, comfortable and spacious bedrooms have soft cotton sheets and their ensuite bathrooms are immaculate.
The Portes du Soleil is paradise for walking or mountain biking in the summer and you’ll find guides and maps in the chalet. Explore Lake Geneva and Montreux, both less than an hour’s drive away; the adventurous can try white-water rafting, paragliding and rock climbing.
