Ferme St Christophe is a truly stunning catered ski chalet positioned in the most sought after location in Samoens. Tucked away in the Vallon area of Samoens and a 10 minute stroll from the centre of town, this beautiful property was originally constructed in 1810 but only recently brought back to its former glory having been painstakingly restored over a 3 year period.
The chalet has 8 en-suite bathrooms sleeping up to 15 guests. 4 of the bedrooms have south facing balconies to enjoy the afternoon and evening sunshine. Seven of the bedrooms can be configured as twins or super king-size doubles using luxurious wool and cashmere mattresses made by award winning Harrison and Spink. All bathrooms have a lovely range of Cole and Lewis bathrooms products along with mirror demister pads. There is super-fast WiFi throughout the property serviced by three separate phone lines into the chalet.
The ground floor comprises a large sitting room complete with an extensive library, iPod docking station and an open fireplace. For those wishing to watch an evening movie then a large flat screen TV can appear at the touch of a button! Separate to the sitting room is the bureau where you can find a quiet spot to read a book or play a board game. The light and spacious dining room has another fireplace and two enormous oak tables with more south facing views.
Separate to the main house is The Barn which offers an excellent second entertaining space. The mazot spa houses a traditional swedish sauna for 16 people with wonderful views of the mountains. It also includes a separate shower and WC. Next to the Mazot Spa is the outdoor hot tub sitting up to 8 people.
