The Farmhouse

Morzine, Haute-Savoie

Warm wood interiors, crackling log fires whenever the weather dips to ‘chilly’ and mountain views from some of the big bedrooms - magical


11 rooms


Rooms sleep 27


The day starts with a breakfast spread in the cattle shed – now a deeply atmospheric dining room – and ends with a slap-up dinner hosted by Dorrien. Many years ago he gave up England for the oldest farmhouse in Morzine – the lovely, steeply pitched Mas de la Coutettaz at the peaceful end of town. Push open the mellow carved door to find a 1771 interior of dark chunky beams, huge Morzine slate flags and patina’d pine doors with original mouldings. Big, characterful, comfortable bedrooms, whose bathrooms promise white robes and lavish lotions, are reached via a central stone stair; some have mountain views. At the end of the garden is an exquisite little mazot, its bedroom up a steep outside stair. Morzine is the perfect staging post for Avoriaz and the Portes du Soleil, so come for big days out on the pistes followed by lively dinners. Return to a hot toddy in the bar and a crackling log fire, lit at the merest hint of chill, even in summer. Final proof (as if you needed it) that you will adore The Farmhouse and long to return.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Dorrien Ricardo

  • In the winter months Morzine offers one of the best ski areas in the world. Les Portes du Soleil is a major ski sports destination in the Alps, encompassing thirteen resorts between Mont Blanc in France and Lake Geneva in Switzerland.
  • The Morzine leisure centre is just down the road from us. This is an Olympic size swimming pool, giant 80 metre water slide, bouncy castle, beach volley ball, indoor pool and spa with saunas and Turkish baths.
  • Fantasticable: This is the only zip wire of its kind in the Alps. Two 1,200 metres cables which shoot you across the Plaine Dranse valley and back again. At one point you are 240 metres from the valley floor! A must for any adrenaline junkie!
  • The beautiful lake Montriond is well worth visiting. Whether it be to walk around it, swim in it, paddle through it or just soak up the sunshine. Features:
