About the property

Chalet in Chinaillon / Le Grand Bornand, Haute Savoie, Rhone-Alpes, France - Be The First On The Slopes Each Morning And The Last To Watch The Sunset

Cosy log fires, authentic local style, magnificent views, delicious cuisine and top class service - all of this in the highest ski-in ski-out chalet on our mountain, only an hour from Geneva.

La Ferme du Soleil is truly one of a kind, set in a gem of a French resort. Our many returning guests love the chalet for the unrivalled access to the pistes and the ageless character that La Ferme du Soleil exudes.

With an excellent snow record the skiing options are diverse. Undulating blues for the beginners, some of the steepest blacks in France for the pros and untouched off-piste for the adventurous. Our central location also offers non-skiers an array of activities to enjoy. There really is something for everyone in Le Grand Bornand, right on our doorstep.

About Hamish Secrett

The property was bought in 1998. It is owned by Veroni Gilbert. Veroni lives with her husband in Oxfordshire and she and her family come to the chalet several times a year.

Over the past 18 years La Ferme du Soleil slowly developed from a family holiday home to a house which everybody can enjoy for their holiday.

Why Hamish Secrett chose Aravis ski area

I was first attracted to the property because it was totally unique!

I visited it in the summer and was blown away by its stunning location. Wild flowers and dairy cows dotted the hills, and the sound of bells that gently jingled round their necks were just wonderful.

In the winter, I discovered that it was the perfect ski location for families yet there were black runs capable of challenging most skiers all in a family-friendly environment.

Chose the right week and there are almost no queues. Wonderful.

What makes this chalet unique

The best thing about the property is its location. In winter we are ski-in, ski-out and it is downhill to the lifts to take you up!

We are the highest habitable house in the resort and reap many benefits from that.

We are in the middle of all the fun in the day and can pop out for a 'quick ski', do a couple of runs and be back within half an hour!

It also makes it easy to be the first on the lifts each morning. To be the only one at the top of the mountain, carving into the virgin snow is breathtaking!

There is also something magical about being up there in the evenings when all the other skiers have returned to their chalets in the valley below. It is utterly peaceful.

Notes:
Outside: During the winter the outside space is the ski resort! We have plenty of space for snowman making, igloo construction, snow tunnel digging and sledging in the evening when the resort has closed. We also upkeep an ice table beside the chalet. Perfect for picnics, drinking mulled wine and enjoying the view, or a romantic candle lit evening drink whilst the sun goes down. During the summer we are surrounded by wild flowers and dairy cows! There is an abundance of wildlife and the landscape provides many beautiful walks or routes for mountain biking. Utility Room: Washing machine and tumble dryer. Also a warm laundry room suitable for drying damp ski clothes. Separate boot room near front door. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: All linen and towels are provided. They are changed once a weekly unless otherwise requested. The chalet is given a big clean on changeover days but all bins are emptied and bathrooms checked daily. Other: A large balcony lines the main living area and is perfectly situated to enjoy the spectacular sunset over the mountains with a sundowner! The Writer's Retreat has a kitchenette and can be used as a self contained flat within the chalet.
