La Vieille Ferme de la Moussiere is a catered ski chalet with a difference. We fell in love with chalet the second we saw it. The ancient house has so much history, character and charm and we think it is completely different to any of the other ski chalets out there. Where else could you stay in a 300 year old house which was once the region’s jail, courthouse and police station; where a gunpowder plot was successfully mastermineded and which was renovated 200 years ago using stolen stone from the enemies demolished Abbey. It has subsequently housed a restaurant, tabac and village shop and has also been a working farm. Many of the building’s original features remain today and it’s spacious living areas and generously proportioned bedrooms are hard to rival.
The chalet is situated in the heart of the pretty village of Saint Jean d’Aulps (just outside Morzine in the Portes du Soleil). Whilst not in the centre of Morzine, we love the chalet’s location -it is stunningly beautiful, peaceful and yet everything you need is on your doorstep. We make getting to and from the ski-slopes and the surrounding villages a breeze – offering complimentary shuttles or arranging taxis whenever they are required. If you are searching for something a little bit more special than the typical purpose build, wooden clad ski chalet then this is the place for you!
La Vieille Ferme de la Moussiere is our short break ski chalet. We are completely flexible and welcome arrivals of any length on any day of the week. Both catered and bed & breakfast catering options are possible at the chalet.
The chalet has been completely renovated to offer our guests the utmost in comfort, yet it retains its original character and charm. Breakfast and dinner are served in our large, open-plan living area. After dinner our comfortable sofas are a great place to relax in front of a roaring fire with a drink from our honesty bar or a bottle of wine from our well-stocked cellar. Tea and coffee making facilities and free wifi internet access are available throughout the day.
There’s plenty to keep you entertained: A flat-screen TV (UK channels), extensive DVD and MP3 library, board games and a huge games room complete with pool table, dart board, second tv/dvd area and playstation.
All 5 chalet bedrooms are extremely spacious and can be configured as doubles (super-king sized!), twins or triples. Three of the rooms can comfortably sleep a family of 4. All bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms and most have spectacular mountain views. For your comfort we provide luxury duvets, fine egyptian cotton sheets, fluffy towels, bathrobes, hair dryers and quality toiletries.
Outside our garden and patio area offer marvelous views over the Morzine mountains and our luxury outdoor hot-tub is the perfect place to enjoy a glass of champagne before dinner. Ample parking is available at the chalet for those who choose to drive. There is also plenty of room to store all of your kit securely in our ski & boot room, which is equipped with boot-warmers.
Getting out onto the ski pistes couldn’t be easier – we’ll take you where you want to go (Morzine, St Jean, Avoriaz), when you want to go in our complimentary minibus so there’s no need to walk anywhere at all! The St Jean d’Aulps telecabine is a 3 minute drive, Morzine 10 minutes and Ardent (to access Avoriaz and beyond to Switzerland) is 12 minutes. At the end of the day we’ll meet you at a pre-arranged time (or give us a call when you’re ready) and bring you back to the chalet where your home baked cakes and the hot tub await! If you prefer an après ski drink we are always happy to pick you up from a bar!
If you can drag yourselves away from the chalet's roaring fire after dinner there are there are a couple of nice bars within easy walking distance of the chalet. There are also a selection of shops and some great restaurants in the village centre. Evening transport into Morzine can also be arranged if you fancy a party night!
