Samoens is a genuinely charming little medieval village fully linked in to the Grand Massif ski area, and Ferme St Christophe is a shining jewel of a chalet tucked away just 10 minutes from the centre of town. It has immense style and offers huge, 500m2 of internal space — all for a very reasonable price.

Exquisitely restored 19th century elegance. This luxury ski chalet was built in 1810 but has been painstakingly renovated over a three-year period and brought back to its original glory by expert craftsmen. The ground floor consists of a beautiful sitting room with an extensive library and lovely open fire. If you want to watch a movie, a large flat screen TV appears at the touch of a button. There is also a separate bureau, perfect for reading a book or playing a board game. The separate dining room is light, spacious and south-facing, with another fireplace and two enormous oak tables as well as fabulous views.

There is also another great entertaining space which is totally separate to the main house, called The Barn – ideal for children to play away from the adults.

This luxury Samoens ski chalet has eight en suite bedrooms sleeping up to 15 people in total. Seven can be configured as either twins or super king size doubles, while the eighth can only be a standard double. Each is equipped with luxurious award-winning wool and cashmere mattresses and all bathrooms have a lovely range of toiletries, as well as mirror de-mister pads, no less.

Four of the bedrooms also have south-facing balconies to enjoy the afternoon and evening sunshine.

Ferme St Christophe is owned privately and run by Andrew and Niki Law, who have had their own very successful restaurant in the UK. As a result, food, wine and service are the chalet’s big thing. Andrew the chef has heaps of experience cooking in his own restaurant and the chalet champions the very best local produce.

Breakfast comes with a daily hot special, afternoon tea includes freshly baked cakes, and dinner consists of a four-course feast. Excellent local red and white wines accompany the impeccable evening meals, together with a choice of complimentary soft drinks.

This beautiful, luxury ski chalet has a separate Mazot Spa which houses a traditional Swedish sauna that is big enough for 16. It has wonderful views of the mountains. Next to this is an outdoor hot tub for 8 people.

This luxury Samoens ski chalet is great for children. There is The Barn, the separate entertainment area which is perfect for them to play in, plus there is the large garden, and heaps of board games and children’s DVD’s in the library.

The elegant décor and supremely tasteful interiors, plus the space and the Mazot Spa.

It’s genuinely hard to think of any!

MY TOP TIP

Don’t miss the fabled Cascade run, which is the longest blue run in Europe. Half way down you can get picked up by a skidoo and taken to a hidden restaurant!

GUESTBOOK

“We spent the most magical Christmas at Ferme St Christophe. It is a beautiful property nestled in a quiet street about a 20 minute walk from the village. Access to the main gondola for skiing was easy enough as a daily shuttle was on call whenever we needed.

Our hosts Niki and Andrew did a truly fantastic job looking after us and were most helpful. The food and wine were delicious and meticulously prepared and served.”

Remember, I have visited all the chalets we feature so can give you totally unbiased, independent advice on all of them. The prices I quote are also the list prices quoted by the chalets themselves, so there is no advantage in going to the chalets direct.
