This lovely Savoyard farmhouse is set in a hamlet just outside the village of Châtel. Find balconies, big windows and stunning views overlooking the pine-packed valley and iced mountains.
Andy and Lorraine are delightful and dedicated hosts. In winter you’ll be fully catered for – wake up to a breakfast of cereals, yogurts, local bread, pastries and homemade jams, followed by afternoon tea and four course dinners of the best organic and locally grown ingredients. Delicious treats of eggs from the hens, truffled pecorino and Lake Geneva trout flow from the kitchen or the terrace’s wood-fired oven.
Spend your days conquering the huge Portes du Soleil ski domaine; choose from five nearby lifts – you’ll get dropped off and picked up again – or explore Lake Geneva and Montreux, both less than an hour’s drive away. Gather for log fires and nightcaps around the three-beam coffee table and retire to your cosy en suite bedroom under fluffy throws.
