Les Fermes de Marie is located in the heart of Megève, in the middle of some the most spectacular skiing in the French Alps. The hugely popular hotel is a collection of traditional farmhouses and chalets restored and converted into a 70-room hotel, with accommodation across nine interlinked chalets. The style is rustic chic – the Alpine cabin-style rooms each have exposed beams, natural light and furnishings that exude true French luxury. There is a cozy library, a rustic bar with deep armchairs and leather sofas, and a fitness centre with indoor pool. The two restaurants offer refined, traditional dishes to match the surroundings, and the Pure Altitude spa is said to be one of the best in France – the 17 treatment cabins are perfect for an aprés-ski massage or an afternoon beauty treatment, and special 'well-being' stays can be organised.
Le Chalet des Fermes de Marie
For those seeking more intimate surroundings, Le Chalet des Fermes de Marie can be hired with full use of all the hotel facilities and services. This cosy three-storey chalet is located in the heart of the hamlet and accommodates up to 10 guests in five double bedrooms.
