A dreamy mountain retreat in the French Alps? Yes please.
Anyone else love the idea of good wine, good cheese and good people? Thought so. Situated on the outskirts of the charming village of Megève, Les Fermes de Marie offers all this and more – we couldn’t wait to take a look around. Think cobblestones, overflowing flowerboxes, vibrant ochres and all the ruby reds, oh and the mighty Mont Blanc perched in the distance. The 5-star Les Fermes de Marie is one of the most stylish mountain retreats in the Alps.
A pretty five minute walk from the village of Megève, you’ll find lush green valleys and vast mountain ranges surrounding a small collection of Alpine pasture farmhouses. Welcome to Les Fermes de Marie. From air concerts to golf courses, hiking trials, lakes and rivers, Megève has something for everyone. Located just an hour away from bustling Geneva, far, far away from the overcrowded hotspots. This place is pure gold.
Enjoy beautifully prepared dishes at not one or two, but three restaurants where you can chose to eat at the remote mountain table d’hôte (a natural paradise high among alpine fields, looking out across Mont Blanc). Dishes are centred around equilibrium, tradition and taking the best from the great outdoors. With multiple restaurants to choose from, including Restaurant Traditionnel, La Salle à Manger, The Fromagerie of Les Fermes de Marie and of course the table d’hôte Les Fermes de Marie, you will be far from disappointed.
The 70 room hotel is made up from a collection of traditional farmhouses and chalets spread over the beautiful five-hectare parkland. The rooms and suites ooze mountain luxury, comfort and style.
Rustic chic, exposed beams, cosy furnishings and no end to natural light. The Sibuet family have made Les Fermes de Marie a combination of beauty, ambience and love.
10,000 feet of Nordic inspired treatment cabins, Japanese baths, mineral lap pool, steam room, a fully equipped Technogym, circular red cedar showers, indoor and outdoor pools, a dry and a humid sauna and as if that hasn’t got you booking flights already, throw in an outdoor Jacuzzi with views looking out over the mountains, this place is all about the good stuff.
‘Eat Speak Love’, a bespoke five night programme offering guests the chance to brush up on their French speaking skills and learn new tricks in the kitchen. Les Fermes de Marie’s chef shares his tips, tricks and secrets for some of France’s greatest dishes. All of this is topped off with the highlight of the retreat – a lunch at a private mountain cabin looking out over the Beaufortain mountain range, the L’Alpage des Fermes de Marie. A rustic retreat encompassing everything French, delicious, and tres, tres bon!
