The Farmhouse is in a lovely central village location. Hosts Joe & Fred keen and managed to produce some good food despite small galley kitchen and malfunctioning oven. Living and dining space rather tight for 12-plus. Master bedroom 5 very spacious. + more

Everything you'd expect from a chalet and it's hosts and more. Fabulously located clean chalet near to town and slopes. Our hosts Fred and Joe couldn't do enough for us and were always ready to help. Beautiful freshly prepared food and the option of a cheese board every night. Would highly recommend. + more

Joe, Katie and Fred looked after us so well this week. We all felt very spoilt waking up to breakfast, coming home to afternoon tea laid out and then a sumptuous dinner. We are taking home great memories and extra kilos! The Farmhouse itself is a gorgeous old house that fit our group of 2 families perfectly. Va... + more

I'm really pleased to be able to give you some honest feedback on our recent stay at the Farmhouse. Firstly, the Ski host needs more skill in navigating his way around the mountain, identifying lift names, understanding bus transfers, communicating effectively etc. He's a lovely chap, but his social skills aren... + more

Overview - chalet description - The Farmhouse description

This chalet, a spectacular farmhouse conversion, is bursting with character and boasts a fabulous location in the very heart of Val d’Isere’s cobbled old town.  

When our architect transformed this 200 year old farmhouse a few years ago, he did a great job to retain the original stone and timber features and develop a quirky yet comfortable chalet within.

Sleeping 12-14 guests this chalet is perfect for larger groups. The accommodation sits over four floors, with a rustic farmhouse kitchen and 5 en suite bedrooms. Of course, we kept the open fire and installed flat screen TV,  WiFi and iPod connectivity so you can relax after a day on the mountain.

Meals - food and drink in The Farmhouse

Our Executive Chef is passionate about food and hugely sensitive to the appetite of a hungry skier whilst considering a balanced diet. The new and refined 2014 menus are heavy enough to reward mountain exertion yet light and simple enough to leave you grinning not groaning.

All our holidays include;

  • Continental breakfast with a cooked option on 6 mornings
  • Afternoon tea will be left in the chalet for you to help yourself to freshly made cake or biscuits, bread & jams, selection of teas, coffee and hot chocolate
  • Canapés on the first and last evening
  • 3 course evening meal (6 nights) followed by cheese board and coffee
  • A choice of red and white wine is served throughout dinner
We update The Farmhouse's details often, but facilities do change. e.g. some extras listed by the supplier as "free" or included might only be for the first time you use them, or for one time per party, then charged for further use. If any specific feature is essential to your holiday, make sure you ask us to confirm the details of it before you book your holiday.

This package holiday to The Farmhouse in Val d'Isere, France departs Monday 5th December 2016, for a 7 night stay on a "catered chalet" board basis. A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged. It's not included in the basic price of your holiday and is usually paid locally. For reference, the average charged in winter 15/16 was between 50p and £2 per person, per night.

In France's Rhone Alp region, Val d'Isere makes up half of Espace Killy which is widely thought of as one of the most brilliant and beautiful ski areas in the world. In keeping with the attractiveness of its surroundings, the resort itself is a compilation of alpine hamlets made up of cosy wood and stone chalets. With the original village dating back to the 13th century and eye-catching church steeple at its centre, the whole place is truly oozing alpine charm. And while dreamily trad in appearance, Val's numero...
In Val d'Isere you'll be skiing in the tracks of some of the world's greatest skiers. Olympic medallists Marielle and Christine Goitschel learned to ski there, not to mention triple gold winner Jean-Claude Killy, after whom the wider ski area is named. As an indication of its premier status, the resort has hosted championships including the 1992 Olympics the World Alpine Ski Championships in 2009, along with the World Cup every December. If some of the best skiers in history have learned here, beginners can...
Famed for its après ski, you're unlikely to have a dull evening in Val. The resort has 4 nightclubs including the legendary Dicks T Bar (open from 4pm - 5am). Living up to its name, you'll experience ‘sweet madness' at Le Folie Douce, which boasts some of the best après ski in Europe. “Bananas” is another favourite, well known for its fantastic cocktails and convenient slope-side location. In Val d'Isere's 92 restaurants, you'll find dishes to suit all tastes from traditional Savoyarde indulgence to Marga...

"Christmas in old village"

Belinda Hallam
4/ out of 5
The Farmhouse is in a lovely central village location. Hosts Joe & Fred keen and managed to produce some good food despite small galley kitchen and malfunctioning oven. Living and dining space rather tight for 12-plus. Master bedroom 5 very spacious.

"Would highly recommend."

We are taking home great memories and extra kilos! The Farmhouse itself is a gorgeous old house that fit our group of 2 families perfectly. Val d'isere is beautiful and a huge, wonderful mountain to explore. Loved every minute of our time here.

I'm really pleased to be able to give you some honest feedback on our recent stay at the Farmhouse. Firstly, the Ski host needs more skill in navigating his way around the mountain, identifying lift names, understanding bus transfers, communicating effectively etc. He's a lovely chap, but his social skills aren't in line with other staff. Vicky (chalet host) was AMAZING and really went out of her way to assist us all over and above her daily responsibilities. The chalet was fabulous and overall, the price point for value was excellent. I felt that the quality of the food on offer was brilliant. More variety in desert would be beneficial as there were 2/3 nights with fruit based offers that could've been substituted for something entirely different, ie chocolate mousse. I loved the feel overall and thought the tea/cake after ski offer was a nice touch! Overall, we loved our holiday and would sincerely like to thank everyone that assisted in making our time so enjoyable and memorable. We are already planning our next adventure.

We have just finished a week in Val d'Isere in the Farmhouse. What a great week it was. We had a great time and the snow conditions were ok but what really made the week was the excellent experience from VIP. Our chalet hosts were spot on and totally professional. Both Fred & Joe, our chalet hosts were very passionate & nothing was too much trouble for them during this enjoyable week. The food was first class with some excellent dishes & cakes in the afternoon Thanks so much lads & keep up the good work & have a great season.
