At our luxury catered chalet you can enjoy a hearty breakfast, afternoon tea and a three course evening meal. However, should you still have an appetite, Samoens offers additional foodie delights. There is a busy weekly market, the largest in the area, selling wonderful local produce including cheeses such as Raclette and Reblochon, Savoyard sausage and hams. As you walk around the lovely little streets of Samoens you will be tempted by the gourmet shops and restaurants. You could pick up some treats to take back to eat on the terrace of your chalet with a glass of wine.

Remember to take a break and relax with a coffee and a pastry in one of the many cafes in Samoens. Watch the world go by with sweet favourites such as the Gateau de Savoie, a light and airy sponge cake often served with fruit. Croix de Savoie, a pastry filled with sweet vanilla custard, is also a very popular choice. A savoury treat to try is Tartiflette, a unique regional dish of potato and bacon, cooked in cream and Reblochon cheese. So indulgent and so tasty!

To get a taste of the region where the food is as warm and welcoming as the people, book a stay at Ferme du Ciel. Food is a special part of a holiday, after all, and memories of dining on the terrace of your chalet watching the sunset or finding that out of the way bistro will last forever.
