    Description

    Ferme Blanche is a cosy ski retreat for up to 12 people (15 if children), sole occupancy is possible for 8 or more. Located in a mountain hamlet just below Montalbert, La Plagne, Ferme Blanche is stylishly renovated and 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.

    The chalet has 3 ensuite bedrooms, two suites, a small cabin room, and an optional studio for 3 (supplement possible) with a shower room room across the hall. There’s also an outdoor sauna, two 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.

    Ferme Blanche’s rural setting is fantastic for dogs. You can go for long walks in the snow along forest tracks, play together in the surrounding fields, or just relax in front of the fire. We can also provide dog sitting and dog walking services for an extra charge subject to availability.

    Please note: the staff live-in and have two well-behaved dogs that are kept away from guests (unless you like them!). If you rent the chalet self-catered, the staff have a studio with its own entrance at the side of the house. They will keep out of your way unless you need help with anything.

    Accessibility

    Ferme Blanche is accessed either via a set of concrete steps or up a slope. There are steps and staircases inside too. Sadly as a result it is not very suitable for people with mobility difficulties. We only accept children in sole occupancy groups. The minimum age is 5 years old.

    Resort

    The farmhouse sits on the top edge of Montvilliers (1100m), a tiny unspoilt hamlet tucked away on the mountainside under the ski resort of Plagne Montalbert (one of the La Plagne ski villages and part of Paradiski). Montalbert’s gondola is a quick 5 minute drive in our private chalet shuttle (for catered guests only). You can also ski back along off-piste forest tracks.

    Plagne Montalbert has picturesque tree-lined slopes, challenging blacks and reds, wide blue runs and some good off-piste. It’s an ideal location for mixed ability and family groups. You can also ski across to the centre of La Plagne where you’ll be spoilt for choice in terms of slopes and restaurants. There’s also a board park, x2 sledge parks and a glacier. If that’s not enough, you can take the Vanoise Express and ski all the way over to Les Arcs too on the other side of Paradiski.
