Renovated in a classic farmhouse style, La ferme du Lynx offers a distinct vintage feel, from the wooden infrastructure to the traditional furnishings.

There are three duplex suites to the barn, each of which has a bathroom fitted with a sink & shower. Each suite has a double bed and a further 3 singles in the mezzanine levels.Each suite offers the perfect retreat for a family. La Ferme du Lynx offers plenty of on-site parking for those traveling via car (recommended), as well as a large garden and shallow slope which can be used for sledging or relaxing.

If you're looking for an affordable family holiday without the stress and strain of staying in one of the more cramped resorts, then look no further!


La Ferme du Lynx offers the ideal base camp for any family looking to enjoy the Portes du Soleil area. Located only 15 minutes away from Lake Geneva and with access to plenty of the 'Secret' ski areas, it offers the ideal respite from resorts such as Avoriaz & Morzine during the peak weeks.

Why Laura Monk chose La Vernaz

La Vernaz is located in the Dranse valley bordering on the Portes du Soleil – one of the world’s largest ski areas. It is a 5 minute drive to St Jean D’Aulps, 20 minutes to Morzine and 15 minutes to Thonnon Les Bains and the beaches of Lac Leman and the Alpine Riviera. It is a stunning location, ideal for families and groups looking to escape the hustle and bustle of their daily lives, and looking for a relaxing holiday getaway more suited to families.

What makes this guest house unique

While La Vernaz is not in the heart of the Ski Domain, it is certainly strategically positioned within the “Geopark Chablais” and offers easy access not only to the Ski lifts of Morzine and St Jean D’Aulps, but also quick access by car to the Abondance Valley, as well as the “Vallee Verte” which offers several new ski areas outside of the main Portes Du Soleil ski domain. Our Guests can take advantage of these smaller areas to avoid queues in the busy periods, as well as more affordable lift passes. Also as we have discovered, better mountain restaurants – often privately owned. Of course should they wish to concentrate on skiing the Portes Du Soleil, access to the lifts can be gained via St Jean D’Aulps (5 mins), Morzine (20 mins), Abondance (20mins) or Chatel (30 mins).
