Located in the oldest ski village in France, in Megève, in Haute-Savoie, Les Fermes de Marie describe themselves as an intimate and bucolic family paradise.
A small hamlet of chic cozy chalets with breathtaking views of the mountains, Les Fermes de Marie are definitely the ideal alpine accommodation for families looking for a change of scenery and pampering.
You can reach this prestigious establishment in 1h15 from Geneva International Airport and 2 hours from Lyon International Airport. A transfer between the airport and the hotel can be organized (from 240€/trip based on 2 people).
Les Fermes de Marie is the stroke of genius of Jocelyne and Jean-Louis Sibuet who bet on “rustic luxury” by combining, in an idyllic green setting, Savoyard woodwork with a high-end and elegant decoration, mostly mottled.
Formerly known as the Saint-Tropez of the Alps, the village of Megève meets each summer demanding families on its alpine lands, when in winter, it offers them the descent of its many ski slopes. Moreover, every 5 minutes, 7/7, shuttles (SUV Land Rover and/or Caravelle VW ) make the trips between Les Fermes de Marie and the tracks!
The property closes from April 7 to June 28, 2019 and from November 3 to December 6, 2019. Les Fermes de Marie are open only on Fridays and Saturdays nights from September 5 to October 13, 2019 and continuously open from October 18 to November 3, 2019.
