    Ferme du Bois combines a fully renovated, 5 bedroom chalet of 280m² and a neighbouring 2 bedroom guest house (mazot) of 95m² in the exclusive area of Les Bois.

    The main chalet was one of the original farmhouses in Les Bois and maintains its rustic features throughout with modern glazing and comfort to create a unique chalet. The main entrance is on the ground floor with a generous reception area an open fire. There are 5 bedrooms on this level, all with ensuite bath or shower rooms. There is a large utility room with a ski/drying room also on this floor.

    A wooden staircase leads to the huge double height open-plan living area with original exposed timber beams and full-height glazing along one wall. There is a stainless steel, commercial style kitchen with open shelving, a large dining area and a lounge with wood-burning stove and access to the balcony. The balcony leads down to the private terrace with jacuzzi. There is also a snug cinema room on this floor.

    The two buildings are separated by an enclosed, private courtyard. The mazot is a refurbished log cabin over three floors. The ground floor has plenty of space for 5-6 with a lounge and dining area, an open kitchen, a bathroom and a laundry room. On the lower floor there is a bedroom, a bathroom and a TV room/lounge which could be used as a bedroom. Above the living area is a mezzanine with a full-sized double bed.

    Our opinion
    This is a special and unique property with style and character throughout. The mazot provides a private guest area with the same charm as the main chalet. Together they have been designed to sleep 14 but still have ample space to live.
