“Amazing holiday !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

A large group of us(25) travelled from East Yorkshire for the best skiing holiday I have ever had. It was fantastic in every way, from the accommodation, the food, the wine, the staff, the skiing, the snow.
A special thank you to an amazing staff, Maz and James, Viks and Seb for whom nothing was too much trouble. The catering and service to table were second to none, dealing with vegetarians and allergies, likes and dislikes, all in their stride. Our room was lovely, clean and warm with added detail of robe and slippers, a luxurious touch!
We look forward to our return trip.

We stayed with my partner with Alikat during the last week of January and had a great stay. The food was extremely good and full of imagination, the wine was excellent, and we really liked the Champagne upon arrival.

Our room was very nice and we particularly like the attention to detail with the bathrobe and slippers provided for us, very handy to use the hot Tub. The team working with Ali was fantatstic as well and they made the stay very relaxing

Everything was extremely well organized from the drop off to the slopes to the pick up at the airport through their partner.

All in all Dominique and I strongly recommend La Ferme de Jules for a relaxing ski holiday.

Thanks again for a great week.

The chalet is really beautiful and the staff are very friendly and welcoming. The food was delicious and the afternoon tea was a perfect end to a day's energetic skiing! The only slight drawback is that the chalet is quite far out of Morzine and taxi's cost around €20 each way so keep that in mind if you like to go out after supper. However, the location is also an advantage as you really get to relax and make the most of the chalet and the wine! Would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: We stayed in a bedroom on the mezzanine which had its own balcony, definitely the best room in the c...

Hi there,
Thanks for your kind words - we really appreciate it.
We know the chalet isn't in the ideal party location but we do offer lifts into town after dinner if you want to go out. The taxi on the way back is generally an 8-seater minibus which can help keep the cost down as well. Like you said, most people just want to relax after a 4-course dinner anyway!

It would be lovely to have you back again next year so stay in touch and have a great 2013!

This is a great chalet to stay while in morzine for skiing!! a very relaxing place to stay with great food being served in a very professional manner. Would highly recommend anyone to stay here esp if you want to take it easy and relax! Excellent selection of wines also served!

We had a wonderful stay at Ferme a Jules. Highlights include delicious food and wine, roomy accommodation, hot tub with wonderful views and Murray the chalet dog. The only possible improvement would be a mid day shuttle bus to allow for the odd lie in or early finish for the less energetic members of the group!

Hi Amanda, Andy & Ellie,
Thank you so much for such a great review! That kind of reaction is exactly why we set up a chalet company in the first place!!

Christmas seems like a long time ago now but still many fond memories

See you next year I hope,

We stayed at Ferme a Jules over Christmas 2012 with another family, so 8 of us in total. The whole chalet got on really well and all the kids had a great time. The whole AK’s team could not have been more helpful and accommodating to our needs, including one of our party being veggie, which didn’t seem to be an issue. The food was amazing, like eating in a Michelin star restaurant. The kids menu served a little earlier than the adults went down a treat with our lot. Christmas day was fabulous, I lost count of the courses and the kids had a magical day. Drop off and pick up to slopes was beautifully co-ordinated, ski man drop off and picked up from chalet………the only thing left to do was ski. Best ski chalet we’ve ever stayed in, will be back soon I hope. Our favourite member of the team was Ivy, she rocks. Amanda, Andy and Ellie of Hertford, UK.

Chalet - very good
Location - poor

To be fair we agree with all previous reviews & cannot fault the quality and service offered by this chalet but it is just in the wrong location in our opinion. Our personal preference would have been to stay within walking distance of Morzine but this is just too far out and taxis cost a whopping 22 euros each way!

The chalet offers drop off and pick up to and from two ski areas and they are pretty punctual but the times are fairly restricted and if there is a large group staying as we had then they tend to get priority so it feels a little restrictive.

If you want to enjoy apres ski and the ambience of Morzine which is a fabulous traditional ski town, and one of the best we have come across in our 25 years of skiing, then you will miss out staying here. If you don't want this then Chalet Ferme a Jules is just perfect.

Hi there,
Thanks for taking the time to review and thank you also for your kind words about our service - we pride ourselves on this so it's always nice to hear that it's appreciated.

We're sorry to hear your comments about the location though. We try to be very clear on our website about exactly where the chalet is (there is a google map with the pinpoint location of the chalet on it) and we also explain on the homepage that it is a 5 min drive to Morzine so I hope it didn't come as a surprise?

As we said at the beginning of your holiday, we are more than happy to pick you up from Morzine if you wanted to ski down and enjoy Apres-ski and even take you into town after dinner to continue the party - you just needed to ask. We might have even joined you for a beer!

Although the late night taxi home is 22 Euros, it is a minibus and fits up to 8 people so the cost can be fairly reasonable if a few of you go together.

Thanks again for the review and we'll let you know if we open a central Morzine chalet!
