About Martin Nederhoed

First we would like to welcome you in the farmhouse “The Barnwood”. This farm is more than 3 generations used as a farm and it was a working farm till the 1990s. The farm is fully transformed and renovated for usage as a farmhouse in 2005. We have bought this property in 2010 and added the playing room ‘the Stable’, the 3rd shower room, the washing cabinet and the cave for the ski material and refurnished the farmhouse for ourselves and our guests. We aim to meet the needs of all our guests and would like to get your input as well any suggestion to improve the experience of your holiday. We would like to wish you a great stay.

Martin Nederhoed purchased this chalet in 2010

Why Martin Nederhoed chose Seytroux

Great home feel as decorated for personal use with just renting our house for a few weeks a year. Most love it :-)

What makes this chalet unique

Great playing room with billiard and WII and magnificent fire place..

Perfect holiday home for families and friends.

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect stay at The Barnwood the first week of August 2016. The pleasant furniture and decoration made us feel very comfortable.

We enjoyed playing pool billiard as well as the parlour games.

The small pool was nice for a refreshing dip after a hike or cycle trip. The garden is a perfect place to eat when the weather admits or just sit and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

The Barnwood is a more than perfect accomodation for 10 persons. All in all it surpassed our expectations.

"We had a very nice stay in Seytroux. The barnwoood was well equiped and very spacious.

Stores, skishops, portes du soleil are reachable within a max. 20 min. drive. Also a nice stay for non skiers: you can start hiking in front of the door. Nice contact with the owner."

Magnifique !!!

  • 5 of 5

Un chalet magnifique très bien équipé et décoré avec beaucoup de goût. La pièce de vie est immense et conviviale. La salle de jeux idéale pour les enfants. Les chambres très confortables. Nous sommes à 20 minutes des pistes de Morzine ( aucune navette à partir du village).

Attention, pour les dormeurs fragiles : pas de volet dans la chambre du haut et le chalet est situé à côté de l'église dont les cloches sonnent toutes les heures !

Un endroit hautement recommandable !

Une semaine formidable.

  • 5 of 5

Fin août 2016, nous avons passé une semaine formidable.

Tout d’abord cette ancienne ferme répond à nos attendes, identique à la description, pas de mauvaises surprises (tellement rare). Elle est immense, magnifiquement décorée tout en gardant l’authenticité des bâtiments d’autrefois.

Pour l’extérieur, point de vue équipement il y a tout ce qu’il faut, la vue est terrible et le village d’une plénitude totale.

Nous y sommes allé avec nos enfants, elles ont également passé une semaine formidable, nous avons trouvé une activité pour tous les jours, le tourisme est vraiment ciblé « famille » !

Bref, Mr Nederhoed (qui est très réactif au mail, pour la réservation et autre, un autre point positif) risque bien de nous revoir dans les années futures.

(Mon commentaire peut paraitre un peu bateau, tout est beau tout est magnifique, mais je vous assure que je ne connais absolument pas le propriétaire, nous avons simplement passé une semaine fantastique !)

  • 5 of 5

"Difficile d''expliquer ce qu''est farmhouse ''The Barnwood'' sans la montrer. C''est le nom de cette ancienne ferme entièrement rénovée en maison de très haut standing. C''était ce que nous recherchions et nous avons été satisfait au delà de nos attentes. Cette maison est tout simplement magique, vaste, décorée avec un gout exceptionnel de ses propriétaires. Tout cela au cœur d''un petit village très calme de haute savoie... Sérénité totale garantie. Les gens y sont très sympathiques. Nous avons pu visiter les gorges du pont du diable à quelques minutes, le lac de Montriond, Avoriaz, Morzine, Evian, Thonon les bains ou génève. Malheureusement nous ne sommes pas restés assez longtemps (juste 5 jours) et c''est avec les larmes que nous sommes rentrés sur Paris. A l''unanimité des membres de ma famille, nous y retournerons sans nous faire supplier et je vous le recommande fortement. Ah farmhouse ''The Barnwood'' ça ne s''explique pas, il faut y aller!!!!"

"Magnifique semaine d''hiver passée dans cette maison. L''intérieur est immense et très bien équipé. Nous étions 8 adultes et 4 enfants et nous avions tous notre espace. La salle de loisir (avec billard et Tv + wii)nous a permis de passer de très bon moment ainsi que des moments très chaleureux dans la grande pièce de vie avec la cheminée. En plus, le village est très calme."

During your stay you can contact Xtra Property Management for any enquiry as they look after our chalet. They take care for ‘meet and greet’ on arrival and will assess the house at departure. They will take care for the linen and the cleaning. Any additional services like arranging ski passes, lessons, day events, etc can be booked by them, against a fee. In the house are the manuals of all equipment.

Haute-Savoie is one of two departments of the Rhone Alpes region that was annexed by France on 24 March 1860. To the north, Haute-Savoie borders Switzerland and Lake Geneva, with Geneva as the closest international city. Thonon is a large city within 20min drive and known for shopping, beach and cultural activities.

Some of the world's most well-known ski resorts are located in Haute-Savoie. Skiing and mountaineering are at the heart of economic activity in Les Porte du Soleil with Morzine-Avoriaz and Chamonix, thanks to the nearby Mont Blanc, Europe's second highest mountain (4,808 meters high). Lake Annecy is another major attraction in Haute-Savoie, as is the town of Évian-les-Bains, the most famous town on the French shore of Lake Leman, and well-known around the world for its Evian mineral water.
