La Ferme des Amis comprises a farmhouse and self-contained chalet. The house was built over 150 years ago and is one of the original Alpine farms in Les Gets, with thick stone walls, large rooms and a distinct Savoyard style that give it a unique warmth and character. The property looks out over the valley of Les Gets and has stunning views while also being within minutes of the village. For summer there is a terrace and garden with spectacular views across the valley. For winter, the free shuttle bus stops directly outside the farmhouse. The chalet is in the converted barn above the chalet with independent access and complete privacy. From its wooden balconies it has great views across the valley to the mountains. The farmhouse and the chalet can be rented separately or together.

Very spacious and comfortable chalet
About the Owner
We are a British family of six who love skiing in the winter and alpine holidays in the summer!!
We chose Les Gets because it is a pretty village with a wide range of skiing and fabulous mountain restaurants. It's in the Portes du Soleil region so there is always plenty to do for everyone.
We started looking for a place to buy in 2004 and finally got lucky in 2006 when we heard that the Ferme des Amis was about to be offered for sale. It's a fantastic house and we spend lots of happy holidays there with family and friends.
Sadly we can't be there all the time (work, school, the usual reasons) so we are happy to rent it out in between times. We have a brilliant housekeeper who lives locally and ensures that everything is ready for your arrival, and will help with any queries during your stay.
20% up front deposit. Balance to be paid two months before date of arrival.
Normal changeover day Saturday, but can be flexible out of high season
Notes on prices:
We also accept payment in euros. Rentals are usually Saturday to Saturday but other dates may be possible. Please ask us. Discounts are usually available for rentals of more than one week, or if you rent both the farmhouse and the chalet together.

Very spacious and comfortable chalet
Had a lovely stay in the chalet part of this property. There were 5 adults & 5 kids and rooms worked very well. Its very spacious and comfortable. Owners were staying below at the time and couldn't have been more helpful, before we arrived sorting out a food shop and also whilst we were there letting us borrow their jeep. It is out of town, however on the bus route (bus stop right outside chalet), so in day time couldn't have been better. Harder if you want to go out in the evening as bus stops at 6.30 pm and night bus was incredibly hard to get hold off. Didn't stop us having a great holiday though.
Activity and Interests
Special interest holidays:
Big summer activity is mountain biking and the resort is a world centre of VTT (Velo Tout Terrain).
Les Gets has a wonderful lake that offers supervised swimming and a small beach area. At Montriond, a much, much larger lake offers fishing, canoeing and the usual range of water activities.
Geneva airport is an hour door-to-door from the house; we have a discount arrangement with a very reliable company and can help you make the booking.
It takes around 8 hours to drive from Calais.
1 mile to centre of Les Gets village.
5 miles to Morzine.
Local Sherpa supermarket just down the road. Nice walk up to superb bar/restaurant above the farmhouse.

- Notes on accommodation: Linen, towels and final cleaning are included in the price. There is a lot of room in this old farmhouse and it is great for groups of families and friends who want to holiday together. Outside: In summer both the chalet and farmhouse provide a lot of outdoor space. The farmhouse has a terrace and garden overlooking the valley. The chalet has two large balconies suitable for entertaining. There is a garden to the side of the property that can be used by guests from both the chalet and farmhouse.
