We hebben met zijn drieën een geweldige tijd gehad in La Fermette in een prachtige en rustige periode van het jaar: lente, bloemen, zon, wat hogerop in de bergen nog sneeuw. Het was goed wandelweer en de omgeving leent zich uitstekend om mooie en gevarieerde wandelingen te maken.
Het chalet is fantastisch gelegen en sfeervol en goed ingericht. Alles wat je nodig hebt is beschikbaar. We hebben ook erg genoten van de loggia: fijn buiten zitten met veel privacy en/of s'morgens koffie drinken in de zon op het terras achter.
Een uitstekende prijs-kwaliteit verhouding. La fermette is een aanrader!
Veel dank voor jullie goede zorgen en tips.

Wij hebben een heerlijke vakantie in het chalet! Het is knus en leuk ingericht, je voelt je er snel thuis. Ontvangst was goed, alles werd meteen uitgelegd. Wij verblijven er met een baby van 8 maanden en daar was goed rekening mee gehouden: box, bedje, stoel. Het (deels) inpandige balkon is fijn, want je zit daardoor lekker beschut. Het geluid van de stromende beek langs het huis is zeer rustgevend. Er is rondom het huis genoeg plek om rustig en in de zon of schaduw buiten te zitten, wel wat trappetjes op en af! Bed is prima, keuken uitgebreid ingericht, combi-oven doet het goed.
In de directe omgeving van het huis kan direct gestart worden met wandelen, mountainbiken of racefietsen. Vanuit o.a. morzine en les gets (20 minuten met de auto) kan je in de zomer met de fiets de lift in naar een vtt bikepark en verschillende vtt tochten maken. Zwemmen kan je in nabij gelegen meren (lac de montriond, 20 minuten met de auto) of bij het supermooie Le plage municipale / Parc aquatique in Thonon les bains (recreatie-zwembad-parkje direct aan het meer van Genève met verschillende baden en veel ruimte om, ook in de schaduw, te relaxen. Zo'n 25 minuten met de auto) of het zwembad in Morzine (centre auquatique, binnen en buitenbaden en ligweide). Ook zijn er met de auto vele dagtripjes te maken naar nabij gelegen bergdorpjes met markten, uitzichtpunten, picknickplaatsen enzovoort. Kortom, twee weken is misschien wel te kort;-)

Een smaakvol ingericht appartement, met een mooi balkon en van alle gemakken voorzien.
In werkelijkheid was het appartement ook groter dan wij verwachtten.
Omgeving is prachtig, naast de alpen is ook het meer van Genève vlakbij.
Prima plek om vakantie te vieren.
