The Farmhouse

One of the most desirable hideaways...

This unique boutique farmhouse has 11 beautiful rooms and 12 if you count their family suite. 4 Rooms are based in the garden and 7 rooms are in the main house.

Built in 1771, The Farmhouse is the oldest building in Morzine, known to the locals as ‘Le Château’. One of the most desirable hideaways in the Alps sits in the heart of this beautiful alpine village just two minutes walk from the centre. As part of the Portes du Soleil region the skiing suits beginners to back country.

With over 650 kilometers of piste and 13 different resorts, all interconnected, you will be hard pressed to find a better skiing experience anywhere else in the world. Relax next to the roaring fire in the beautiful slate floored bar and then enjoy the magical experience of a gourmet dinner in the atmospheric dining room lit entirely by candelabras.

The Farmhouse is a truly unique experience and the level of service first class. Once you have discovered this gem you will return year after year...

Banquet Style

The restaurant is open to all. The dining room has one large ‘banquet’ style table where everybody eats together.

Please arrive at 7:30 pm so that you may enjoy a drink at the bar with canapés before being taken through to the dining room at 8:00 pm.

The Bar

The bar itself is the heart of the building and used to be used as the kitchen in days gone by with the kitchen staff cooking family meals over the large open fireplace. The impressive slate floor is covered with comfortable furniture in front of the fire so that you can relax after a hard day on the mountain.

The Restaurant

The bar, like the restaurant, is open to residents and those who join for dinner. It is open until 1:00 am each night and the music collection is vast and varied! If the mood suits they push back the sofas and the dance floor is ready! They occasionally have live music from local artists, and sometimes classical or jazz for a more relaxed evening. The evenings begin with canapés and an aperitif before dinner.
 
They have a large range of drinks available behind the bar to ensure that all tastes are satisfied but if there is something else that you fancy – then do not hesitate to ask! There is a wonderful wine cellar downstairs and a varied wine list available behind the bar.
 
Just off the bar is a relaxing sitting room with plenty of games to keep the whole family entertained, also a well stocked library with an eclectic choice of books. There is also a TV with satellite as well as a large selection of Videos and DVD’s.

Resort Amenities

They could not be more enthusiastic about the vast array of activities to choose from, year-round, in this region.
 
With regards to childcare facilities they would recommend you look at the options in each part of the resort so that you can place your children in the same area in which you choose to ski each day.
