La Ferme Liberté
We’ve set up the house to be cosy and comfortable, whatever your number or mix.
A separate Kids TV and playroom, in sight of the main lounge areas, keeps the kids happy and parents content and the main lounge has 3 areas dependent on your mood.
There is fast wifi throughout and you can log into your Netflix and Amazon accounts on the Samsung Smart TVs to watch your latest box set. Music systems in the lounge and dining room stream your music from your phone - small things that all help you to enjoy the house in your way.
Floor to ceiling windows and a south facing aspect allows the light to flood in. Whilst underfloor heating throughout means a lovely warmth with no hot or cold spots and the large log burner in the lounge can be fired up for winter cosiness.
Eating and Drinking
For a kitchen to work properly in a large chalet it has to have enough space for food storage, preparation and cooking.
La Ferme Liberté does. The electric Range cooker has 2 large, separate fan ovens and a separate grill. The hob is 6-zone Induction providing rapid and safe cooking heat whilst being easy to clean. The Nespresso machine, toaster, kettle and microwave are all high quality brands. The dishwasher will do most of the cleaning up, and there is a large American style fridge freezer with water and ice dispenser.
We think it's often the simple things that make the difference: loads of glasses and coffee cups, all of the same type and size: large. None of those ‘thimbles’ of juice or coffee in the morning and mis-matched wine glasses here. A properly stocked kitchen means pots and pans for everything and sharp knives to make the food prep a cinch not a chore.
The sliding double doors off the kitchen offer views straight out onto the garden and forest, and in the summer months the large decking - half covered - and BBQ areas get constant use with a large parasol and comfy outdoor furniture.
The ‘breakfast bar’ provides another place for chatting, having a beer or keeping the nominated chef company. If you want a chef to come in to cook for you this can be arranged as well as meals delivered which you simply have to heat up.
Directly across the hallway, the separate dining room is a beautiful space; the large contemporary oak dining table has seats for everyone, a music system and views onto the garden
You arrive on holiday, tired from work and travel and finally get to bed before your first day in the mountains. Uh, what’s that? A bed that’s too hard/soft/uncomfortable for you? We all have different preferences and that’s why we’ve equipped all the beds with the award winning Emma mattresses. Supportive, hypoallergenic and above all, comfortable. These are teamed with duck down duvets, pillows and 400 count Egyptian cotton bed linen. No hollow fibre here. And all UK King size.
The big fluffy towels, bathrobes in your size and ‘beach’ towels, for your trips to the hot tub, sauna or swimming lakes, will also keep you cocooned in comfort. Just as it should be on holiday. The Farm can sleep up to 14 people in 5 bedrooms; With 4 king size beds and 3 adult size bunk beds. All are en-suite with the downstairs double having a shower and sink in the room but separate toilet which also services the kitchen / dining rooms.
The Yeti Bunk Room What do kids love? Being together and bunk beds. That’s why we’ve made the Bunk Room, with 3 adult size bunk beds (so sleeping 6) with kid-specific comfy mattresses, this room has loads of space for playing, large wardrobes & storage and its own en-suite bathroom. It's downstairs, near the dining room, with 3-foot thick walls so it is very quiet!
The French Bedroom is a large bedroom, situated off the main living room, with a boudoir feel. With its large en-suite bathroom and dressing room it offers a large space for maximal rest whilst the original oak beams and french furniture give the room character.
The Ski-Bum Room is one of our favourites - situated off the main living room, in the front corner of the house, it has huge south facing windows making it light and airy and allowing the outside, in. The en-suite has a large shower, wash basin and toilet
The Mezzanine Suite makes you feel like the King or Queen of the castle. This room is accessed via the floating oak stairs from the living room and makes you feel ensconced in the roof structure and fabric of the building, which gives it a wonderful organic and cosy feel. The en-suite bathroom is tucked behind with a Velux roof light (and solar powered remote blind) a toilet, twin sinks and a large shower.
The Bunker Room is downstairs, opposite the Yeti Room, and is clad with old wood, giving it a true mountain vibe. The brand new en-suite with toilet, basin and wet room shower is clean and modern.
Little legs - whilst the Farmhouse is in easy reach of the village, during the winter months little legs in ski boots may need a helping hand. We have a complimentary mini bus services that will take you to the slopes in the morning and pick you up at the end of the day, only a 5 minute journey but takes out the hassle factor.
Taxis & Transfers - Airport transfers and evening taxis can be organised for you.
Babysitting - Fancy a night off or a night out? We can sort that out.
Eating & Drinking - We can help take the hassle out of eating. Breakfast, afternoon tea or dinner from a gourmet chef and waiters to home delivery dishes that just needs heating, what ever you want we can organise it.
Concierge services - We can advise on and book activities for all ages, from white water rafting to parapenting to downhill mountain biking to walks in the mountains. We can also organise discounted (at Skimium) ski and boot hire and help with English speaking ski schools.
Dry boots - There's nothing worse then damp boots so the separate boot room in the front entrance has plenty of space to hang jackets up, helmets, skis and more. The two Koralp warm air boot dryers allow for 12 pairs of ski boots to dry to after a hard day on the piste.
Clean clothes - The separate washer and dryer are available for you to use during your stay and there’s an iron and ironing board if you need them.
Warming up, cooling down - The Chalet has both a sauna inside and a hot tub on the terrace outside, both there to help soothe away the aches and pains of those hard days in the mountains. We’ve also been known to lie in the ‘cold tub’ (the wooden water trough outside, fed by our natural spring water) if you fancy channeling your inner Wim Hoff. Watch your bum for splinters though!
