We were greeted by the very friendly owner and to discover this old farm so nicely refurbished was a pure delight!
The views are astonishing,and the rooms spacious,elegant and very cozy.
Everything was perfectly organised and the 5mn car drive to the nearest ski lift not a problem.
Samoens historic village is charming and just a few minutes by car.You can also walk there(20mn).
We highly recommend this getaway to anyone who wants to ski or just relax in a lovely atmosphere with family or friends.

Perfect Base for our Skiing Holiday

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 26-Feb-2013
  • Date of Stay: Feb 2013
This converted farmhouse was a perfect base for our skiing holiday in Samoens. It was spacious and extremely comfortable for the seven members of our party and the views across the valley were breathtaking both by day and night.The overall cleanliness of the farmhouse was high and there was a constant supply of hot water throughout our stay which fully met our needs.

As we were staying on a self-catering basis we did not use the restaurants but there was an abundant supply in the village a short drive away. The farmhouse inventory was extensive and fully met our catering needs and the furnishings had a personal touch which gave a comfortable and homely feel during our stay. Within the accommodation were two storage area for ski boots/jackets, one of which provided adequate drying facilities for clothing.

The access road leading to the farmhouse was narrow and could have been tricky had the snow not been cleared before our arrival otherwise snow-chains would definitely have been necessary. Access to the vast ski area is via the Grand Massif Gondola Station located about3a 2km drive away with free parking areas located close by.

The pictures on the website do not due justice to the property and we were pleasantly surprised to find the actual feel of the farmhouse more comfortable and homely than we expected. There were CD's and board games available as well as sufficient television channels. Overall this farmhouse was one of the best chalets that my wife and I have visited in over 26 years of skiing throughout Europe and I am sure that we will return should we be returning to Samoens.

We are also grateful to the owners who were able to provide the background of the farmhouse, and a brief history of Samoens. Our emailed questions to the owners were promptly answered and we found it comforting to know that the owners representatives lived close at hand and were easily available should we have needed any assistance during our stay.

I would recommend this farmhouse to others without hesitation.

Thank you.
Owner's Response: We bought this beautiful untouched farmhouse back in 1978, and we have put all our efforts in restoring it without spoiling the charm and the atmosphere of an old house. Our family has lived in it for 25 years and we are still enchanted by the stunning view and the calm surroundings. The interior decoration has always been a priority for us, trying to create a warm, personal and multicultural atmosphere with craft from the different countries we have lived in for the past 15 years. Our children and grandchildren also love this place, not only for the house and the garden, but also for the big variety of all-season activities children and adults can enjoy in and around Samoens. We hope to share our passion for the house and the valley with all our guests.

Beautiful Old Traditional Farmhouse

  • Review Submitted: 28-Sep-2011
  • Date of Stay: Apr 2011
My husband and two children love staying at La Ferme Scandinave and have been returning for the last three years. La Ferme Scandinave is a beautiful and stylishly renovated traditionnal savoyard farmhouse located up on the sunny coteau sud. It offers stunning views of the village and surrounding valley and Grand Massif mountain range. It is a short drive down to the village and slopes. The decor is warm and well suited to family life. Kitchen is fully equipped and so practical. we have cooked many memorable meals there experimenting with all the local delicacies. It also has a piano. We love la Ferme Scandinave and hope to be returning for many more years

Comfort, charm and style in a magnificent location

  • Review Submitted: 21-Jun-2010

My wife and young daughter spent a week here in May, and couldn't have been happier with the location and standard of accommodation. It was a genuine delight to spend time in the house, which has such warmth and character and style. The views across this beautiful valley will stay with us for a long time. Samoens provided a good base to explore this part of the Alps. The village itself is very appealing, with plenty of good shops, a good sized weekly market, and a big park nearby for the kids. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property and location as a way to experience the French Alps. Malcolm was a friendly and helpful host, and although we didn't get to meet Henri and Kirsten, they were very friendly and responsive in our dealings.

A beautiful house in a beautiful location

We LOVED the accommodation which was even better than described. The accommodation is extremely comfortable and pleasant in so much as you instantly feel at home there. It has been renovated superably and sympathetically. I loved the history supplied by Henri. You do need a car although there are shorter (but steep) routes down to the village for walkers. We will definitely want to return to this shouse.
