Sara Jane and Jimmy have done a fantastic job renovating their 17th-century farmhouse and are eager to share their passion for the mountains with their guests. Although there are modern chalets nearby, none obscure the lovely views of the valley below and a ski area on the other side.
The chalet is catered in winter with the option of self-catering or B&B in summer. Sara Jane is an enthusiastic cook and serves meals around a long table in the atmospheric dining room next to the log fire, or out on the deck with views of mountain peaks. Drive five minutes to Samoëns for restaurants and a supermarket.
The Grand Massif is the highest ski area in the Haute Savoie, and Jimmy will happily transport you to ski lifts and pick you up afterwards. There’s a jacuzzi in the garden and a swimming pool. In summer there are glorious walks in alpine meadows, or mountain biking.
