Ferme Blanche is a cosy ski retreat for up to 12 people (sole occupancy possible for 8 or more) in a mountain hamlet just below Montalbert, La Plagne. Stylishly renovated, it has lots of rustic alpine charm, including stone floors, original timbers, and stone walls nearly a metre thick in places. The chalet is ski-in (off-piste track), and surrounded by meadows and forest, with breathtaking views across the mountain tops. It is also directly opposite Petite Blanchette, a delightful newly renovated duplex chalet apartment.
If you’re a larger group or require more space, you can also take Ferme Blanche’s new top floor penthouse (see Grande Blanchette).
The chalet has 4 bedrooms sleeping up to 8 (three are ensuite), and an optional studio for 3 (supplement possible) with a shower room room across the hall. There’s also an outdoor sauna, fire pit, sun terraces, deck and enclosed garden. It’s the ideal spot for a mountain escape. You feel a million miles away from the outside world – no traffic, no bars, and no shops. The nearest are 2 kilometres away in Longefoy – a 20 minute “flattish” walk along a country lane. You can also hike up to the village resort of Plagne Montalbert, depending on the conditions, it’s about 25 minutes up from the house along forest trails. Alternatively, take the easy option and use our private chalet driver service!
Despite being so close to the slopes, Ferme Blanche’s hamlet has managed to stay hidden and undeveloped. Children make snowmen and sledge in the village fields, deer and wild boar visit the gardens at night, and the sky is lit by stars and a few old fashioned street lamps.
