A real old farmhouse on the south-facing flank of Morzine with original slates, knobbly beams, and heaps of space. Everything has been beautifully considered by generous English owners (who live downstairs), from the study/snug with its wood-burner to the fabulous living area on the top floor to the media room in between. Imagine silver reindeer heads, a sweeping crushed-velvet sofa, a long matt-white dining table, cowhide wallpaper a wooden ‘sun-beam’ ceiling and tartan flourishes. Step out for beautiful mountain and lakeside walks; there’s a good golf course ten minutes’ away. Return to fabulous food, beers and wines.
