Latest news and happenings from our luxury Chalet and around Samoëns
"The outdoor hot tub and deck area was fantastic and champagne in the hot tub became a nightly ritual for us! The sauna was also great just to complete the whole relaxation process!
In terms of service, Andy and Su were fantastic in helping us with arrangements for the trip, advising us as to ski schools to use and then in ensuring a very smooth transfer from/ to the airport and arranging ski hire and lift passes, etc. They are also ski guides and we really enjoyed skiing with them on our last morning when we had no ski school to attend. They also did a great job of ferrying our group backwards and forwards to the slopes each day and making sure we got to where we needed to be in time and with all our gear!
Last but absolutely not least, the food was totally amazing! We have a particular passion for food so it was really vital to the enjoyment of our holiday that we dined well and Jeremy and Danielle certainly ensured this was the case! Breakfasts were vast, perfectly cooked and with a large choice so everybody was happy. Danielle's homemade cakes at afternoon tea-time were divine and she did an amazing job considering two of our group are gluten intolerant and one had a peanut allergy! And the canapes and three-course evening meals that Jeremy cooked up (with Danielle in charge of deserts!) were stunning. The children had their dinner prior to us and these again were not your standard or basic kids dinners at all but freshly prepared, healthy and most of all delicious and highly rated by all the kids!
The whole team made us all feel very welcome and at home and also were fantastic with the children.
We can highly recommend Ferme du Ciel and certainly would return ourselves in the future. The only area where I felt unable to give a score of 5 was for value and this was because we went during February half term (which is the most expensive week to go) plus we were a very small group (only 8) whereas the chalet can sleep up to 18! Therefore if you had more people going who could share the cost and you didn't go at the most expensive time of year it would be excellent value for money."

"We had a wonderful stay at this chalet. It is of an excellent standard with high quality facilities. The staff of Dan and Bailey along with owners Andy and Su made us feel very welcome and went the extra mile to make sure we had everything we wanted. The views from the chalet are fabulous and the cooking was first class. As others have said it is out of the village so perfect for those who do not depend on the bars for their night life. The four double rooms are basically the same except those at the front enjoy the view of the valley.
It is perfect for a short break - we stayed 5 nights and could have skied on the afternoon of our arrival if we had wanted. The skiing was great with easy access to Flaine for more runs, without having to stay in its concrete buildings. Samoens, Morrilon and Les Carroz offer lots of enjoyable runs and there are plenty of nice mountain restaurants."

“I stayed with Su and Andy during L'Étape du Tour 2016 (a summer cycling event). The chalet and position couldn't be more perfect and the food was 1st class. There was always a warm welcome and I was really impressed that they even managed to get up to provide a full breakfast at 4am; above and beyond the call of duty there guys! Thanks and see you again soon hopefully.”
