Chalet La Vieille Ferme

 

SKIING WINTER 2018

 
  • St Gervais is in the huge EVASION MONT BLANC ski area, with 430 kms of pistes covering St Gervais,Megève, Combloux, Les Contamines, and La Giettaz . There are pistes for all levels, from easy greens and blues for beginners, to the challenging 'Chamois' off the Mont Joly, one of the blackest of black pistes in the Alps!
  • This area area is excellent for all weather conditions. The wide open spaces of the Mont Joux, Mont Joly and Les Contamines are a delight on a sunny day, whereas the tree lined slopes of the Mont Rosset and Princess give you magical visibility in flat light conditions. And best of all, out of very high season you can have the pistes practically to yourselves!
  • Our chalet, La Vieille Ferme, overlooks St Gervais and has superb views of the mountain itself. Marie's cuisine, the warm natured ambience of our supper table and the size and comfort of our chalet have ensured that we have a very high return rate! We can pre- organise any ski hire that you might need so that you waste the minimum amount of time when you get here. Ski passes can be booked online and delivered direct to us to await you arrival. Our sixteen years of experience in St Gervais can also tell you where the best places are to ski in different conditions, as well as the best value for money mountain restaurants to head for. 
  • St Gervais is only an hour's transfer time from Geneva which makes us an ideal location for SHORT BREAKS and LONG WEEKENDS! An early flight out and an evening flight home can give you nearly a whole extra day's skiing!

Cuisine:

Marie's cooking is one of the main reasons why so many of our guests return again and again. She brings a special touch to the best of the local specialities, as well as serving dishes with origins from all over the world.The only hint of criticism she has had is that people's waistlines have been known to be larger when they leave here than when they arrived, even after all the exercise!
  • Three course evening meal includes wine, (a much too drinkable little number discovered by Jeremy after much dedicated research)
  • We have a well stocked honesty bar
  • Picnic lunches are available in summer; Jeremy's baguette sandwiches are renowned throughout the world!

Services:

Your hosts, Jeremy and Marie have owned and run La Vieille Ferme for 16 years, and live here all year round. "We are immensely proud of our home and incredibly enthusiastic about the Mont Blanc region in which we live. We consider ourselves hugely priviledged to spend our lives in this area of oustanding natural beauty, and to be able to take advantage of many of the sporting activities that go with the mountains. Our aim is simple: to impart our love of the mountains with our guests, to try and pass on what we feel, and to share the comfort, good food and relaxed atmosphere of our wonderful home".

And in order to attract even more people to the mountains in summer, we now run walking-weekends in the Alps. With travel time London to St Gervais from only three-and-a-half hours, this is a brilliant weekend away!
