“A truly amazing place with very lovely people”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2012

I have just returned from a five day ski break with my boyfriend and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The chalet is just amazing – it is a boutique set up but with a very friendly home vibe to it. The food was fantastic and Su and Andy are lovely hosts. We thought that the location would be a problem as you have to be driven to the slopes (10 min car ride) but it wasn’t.

We have just returned from a few days stay at this stunning chalet and cannot recommend it highy enough. Everything that previous reviewers have stated is true. We found everything was to a high standard, accom, food, hosting, ambience I could go on forever!
It is set in a peaceful setting with fabulous views and you really feel that you have stayed in the French countryside rather than just a ski resort.
Well done Su and Andy with thanks to Danielle and Jeremy for great dining

Room Tip: I had a tour of all the bedrooms bar one, which was occupied, and all were beautiful and very simila...

We have just arrived back (2 days ago) from a truly wonderful 7 day stay at the Ferme de Ciel. The chalet itself is absolutely stunning with lovely spacious rooms which are all beautifully decorated and equipped with everything you could possibly want.

The living area is divided into two sections with a lovely sofa area in front of the fabulous fireplace with glorious views down the valley towards Samoens where the grown ups can relax and then tucked away around the other side of the room is a separate area with large flat screen tv, x-box and DvD player where the kids can unwind. This worked really well for us in the evenings however the only slight draw back (although this is only very slight!) is that as the two areas are both part of the whole open plan living space you can still hear the kids even if you can't quite see them! Having said that, there are also tv's and DVD players in all the bedrooms so it is possible to get the kids watching a movie in one of the upstairs bedrooms if they decide they want to watch a particularly noisy action film!

The outdoor hot tub and deck area was fantastic and champagne in the hot tub became a nightly ritual for us! The sauna was also great just to complete the whole relaxation process!

In terms of service, Andy and Su were fantastic in helping us with arrangements for the trip, advising us as to ski schools to use and then in ensuring a very smooth transfer from/ to the airport and arranging ski hire and lift passes, etc. They are also ski guides and we really enjoyed skiing with them on our last morning when we had no ski school to attend. They also did a great job of ferrying our group backwards and forwards to the slopes each day and making sure we got to where we needed to be in time and with all our gear!

Last but absolutely not least, the food was totally amazing! We have a particular passion for food so it was really vital to the enjoyment of our holiday that we dined well and Jeremy and Danielle certainly ensured this was the case! Breakfasts were vast, perfectly cooked and with a large choice so everybody was happy. Danielle's homemade cakes at afternoon tea-time were divine and she did an amazing job considering two of our group are gluten intolerant and one had a peanut allergy! And the canapes and three-course evening meals that Jeremy cooked up (with Danielle in charge of deserts!) were stunning. The children had their dinner prior to us and these again were not your standard or basic kids dinners at all but freshly prepared, healthy and most of all delicious and highly rated by all the kids!

The whole team made us all feel very welcome and at home and also were fantastic with the children.

We can highly recommend Ferme du Ciel and certainly would return ourselves in the future. The only area where I felt unable to give a score of 5 was for value and this was because we went during February half term (which is the most expensive week to go) plus we were a very small group (only 8) whereas the chalet can sleep up to 18! Therefore if you had more people going who could share the cost and you didn't go at the most expensive time of year it would be excellent value for money.

This chalet is beautifully renovated and located in a very pretty village.
If you are ready to share the chalet experience, you can do this comfortably.
The food and house keeping were of very high standard, thanks to JB and Danielle.
Big kiss to Lulu, the "poussycat".
The kids had a great time.
Thank you very much Sue and Andy for this nice long weekend.

We have just returned from a short break at Ferme du Ciel. This was our second visit and again it did not disappoint. This really is a beautiful chalet renovated to a very high standard. Good food, good company and plenty of skiing ensured a perfect weekend.

My wife and 4 year old daughter spent new year with Andy and sue at their magnificent chalet. From the moment we were picked up our holiday was made to feel very special. The chalet is very very impressive, converted to the highest standards from a derelict building. No expense has been spared on the little extras that make a good holiday into a special holiday. If you are looking for a perfect winter retreat in warm friendly surroundings look no furher. After 25 years of skiing I have found the perfect ski chalet which compliments the skiing in samoens so well.

I applaud Andy and sue for there hard efforts which pay dividends for everybody who has he opportunity to stay.

A final point I want to make on the chalet and their excellent standards of service. One day I made the biggest mistake by leaving my daughters ski boots and helmet at home. One call to the chalet and the equipment was delivered to the bottom of the telecabin - I didn't even need to get off!!! That just epitomises the level of service provided

Ferme du Ciel lived up to everything we expected it to be.
The hosts were very flexible in terms of transport to and from the ski areas and supplying us with local info to make our time there very enjoyable and relaxing. It also helped they had a kiwi for a cook so the catered food was of the very best standard. The other guests that were in the house made for a great time and have made this stay one for the memory bank. We will not be hesitating to recommend this place to anyone that asks,
Thanks guys for the wicked time, sweet.
Jake and Gem.
