Our charming Savoyard Farmhouse nestles in a beautiful, quiet hamlet in the Vallée d'Abondance within its own pasture-style garden with mature trees and with a fabulous mountain backdrop and breathtaking views all year round. The immediate area around it is peaceful and tranquil, yet it lies only 10 minutes drive from Abondance where the magnificent Portes du Soleil ski area begins. It is semi-detached but split along the roof ridge line so the other side of the chalet is completely separated giving complete isolation and privacy, each side having their own driveway access from the main road with no shared facilities whatsoever. Because it is an old farmhouse, the walls are very thick and provide great insulation from noise and inclement weather. The farmhouse is set in a beautiful and picturesque valley landscape which can be appreciated both in winter and summer. The house is roomy and will comfortably house a large family or a group of friends.
Built originally in 1842, the farmhouse/chalet has been sympathetically renovated in the traditional woodclad Alpine style to a high standard providing warm and comfortable, family-style living accommodation over two floors. From the house and garden, there are stunning views over the steep snow and pine clad alpine mountains around it and also down the gentle slopes of the valley towards Vacheresse, our local village, and the adjoining valley, giving that picture-postcard feel.
The ground floor area has a large fully fitted, convivial kitchen/diner for family/group eating with ample seating for 10 persons around a large wooden table. The kitchen is fully equipped with all mod cons and stocked with everything you need for cooking and dining - an electric range cooker and oven, a microwave, fridge/freezer, a wine chiller and a double sink. There is a large pine dresser and plenty of plates, saucepans, utensils and cutlery. Leading off the kitchen is a sun terrace with table and chairs for the all important evening 'apéro' and summer wining and dining with lovely, sweeping views over the meadow garden, the valley and the surrounding mountains.
Next to the kitchen is a spacious and comfortably furnished, family-style living room with two comfy double sofas and other easy chairs with the added warmth of a wood burning stove for cosy evenings in the winter giving it a homely feel where you can completely relax and unwind after a hard day's exercise. There is a large, flat screen television and plenty of DVD's, board games and books to keep you entertained in the long winter evenings. Double windows create a light and airy space during the day.
Across the hallway is a separate toilet and a modern bathroom with bath and two basins. Next to the bathroom is a 'boot room' cum storeroom for storing your essential ski equipment, cases, etc. so this can all be neatly tucked away at the end of the day.
Stairs from the kitchen lead upstairs where there are four comfortably furnished double bedrooms, two with French door access to a sun terrace and the balcony which extends along the front of the house. Two bedrooms contain double beds, one has twin beds and one as two sets of bunk beds so there is ample sleeping space for 10 people. There is also a put-up bed in one of the double bedrooms suitable for a child. There are storage facilities for clothes, etc. in every bedroom. Two bedrooms each sit either side of a spacious landing where there is a shower room with toilet facilities. There are beautiful views of the mountains and valley from all four bedrooms. There is a large landing with a sofa for extra relaxation space.
The house has electric heating throughout which is included in the overall price. There are pictures on the walls and rugs and ornaments throughout, giving the house a homely and easy feel.
The property has its own private driveway from the access road to the main road and is fronted by a large pasture type garden and mature trees. It is quiet, peaceful and safe for children to play, although the village of Vacheresse with all its facilities is only 2 minutes drive away or a 20 minute walk. There is also a ping-pong table and table football for tenants' use.
Please note that the cellar/basement area is not for tenants' use.
Here at our farmhouse you can have the best of both worlds - lively 'buzz' in the major resorts if you feel like it just down the road , but peace and quiet in tranquil surroundings if you don't and a perfect retreat to get away from it all.

Hi there. We are Mike and Tania and would be delighted to welcome you to our lovely Savoyard farmhouse/chalet. We live in Berkshire and have three grown up sons and family and friends who enjoy the skiing, winter and summer sports and all the amenities that our chalet and its surrounds in the Vallée D'Abondance and beyond has to offer. We both work full time - I have a building company and my wife, Tania, also works so we lead busy lives and really appreciate the fun and relaxation that going to the Haute Savoie offers us, both in winter and in the summer.
