About the property

FR1337

La Ferme des Amis comprises a farmhouse and self-contained chalet. The house was built over 150 years ago and is one of the original Alpine farms in Les Gets, with thick stone walls, large rooms and a distinct Savoyard style that give it a unique warmth and character. The property looks out over the valley of Les Gets and has stunning views while also being within minutes of the village. For summer there is a terrace and garden with spectacular views across the valley. For winter, the free shuttle bus stops directly outside the farmhouse. The chalet is in the converted barn above the chalet with independent access and complete privacy. From its wooden balconies it has great views across the valley to the mountains. The farmhouse and the chalet can be rented separately or together.

About Rachel

We are a British family of six who love skiing in the winter and alpine holidays in the summer!!

We chose Les Gets because it is a pretty village with a wide range of skiing and fabulous mountain restaurants. It's in the Portes du Soleil region so there is always plenty to do for everyone.

We started looking for a place to buy in 2004 and finally got lucky in 2006 when we heard that the Ferme des Amis was about to be offered for sale. It's a fantastic house and we spend lots of happy holidays there with family and friends.

Sadly we can't be there all the time (work, school, the usual reasons) so we are happy to rent it out in between times. We have a brilliant housekeeper who lives locally and ensures that everything is ready for your arrival, and will help with any queries during your stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The Chalet was exactly what we were looking for to enjoy our time in the Alps. Spacious, comfortable and really felt like 'home' for the two weeks we were there." Mrs D, July 2013



"We have rented many chalets over the years, but this has to be the best. Very tasteful conversion within this stunning ancient farmhouse, perfect for a family/group of friends." Mrs F, December 2012



"The chalet was brilliantly located, on a hillside with amazing views and the local free bus stops right outside and always on time!" Mrs B, February 2012



"We came here at the last minute and had a really nice time. Lovely old french farmhouse which has been converted to a ski chalet. Absolutely charming, lovely and warm after a long day's skiing." Mrs S, December 2011

Charming and cosy chalet in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Ferme des Amis. The chalet is very nicely decorated, with a separate snug for the children to watch Tv or play. The fireplace is lovely!

In addition, the chalet is well appointed and furnished with esentials such as dishcloths, condiments etc. It is obviously a well-loved, home-owned chalet with a corresponding atmosphere and charm,

We are hoping to return next year.

A great base for skiing!

  • 5 of 5

A truly charming place! Really warm, comfortable and cozy. Our group of 13 had plenty of space and everything is well thought through - all the kitchen equipment one could possibly need and a boiler that can handle all the showers in use at the same time!

We found the ski bus service to be excellent - a regular, free service and as pretty much the first stop on the route we were always able to get on.

It's really easy to transfer from Geneva with one of the ski services (we used Skiidugonzales who were excellent) and then there is no need to have a hire car.

I would highly recommend this property - excellent communication from the owners.
