  • «Delicious cuisine to tempt your tastebuds!»

    Getting away from it all means not having to worry about the cooking... Good food is a vital ingredient of any holiday, and we take the greatest pride and care in the quality of our cuisine. We use only the freshest ingredients, locally sourced, and each day our talented chef prepares a tailored, tempting menu. Everything is homemade, and after a day in the great outdoors, you’ll have worked up an appetite to do it justice!

    On your first evening, a complimentary glass of Champagne and delicious canapés by the roaring log fire set the culinary tone for the week ahead. Each evening, you’ll be treated to a fabulous three- course meal, complemented by our free-flowing, excellent house wine. (Other drinks, including champagne, port and brandy, are available from our cellar for a small supplement.)

    We have one chalet night off a week, leaving you free to explore Samoëns’ excellent restaurants. We’re happy to recommend our favourites and make bookings if you wish.

    In the mornings we’ll prepare you for a day in the great outdoors with a hearty breakfast, including a choice of porridge, cereals, yoghurts, fresh fruit, a special hot dish, and freshly baked croissants and breads, all washed down with fruit juice, fresh coffee or a choice of teas. And when you return exhausted in the afternoons, you’ll be welcomed with afternoon tea, complete with irresistible freshly baked cakes.

    «Special Requests»
    For vegetarians and young diners, we are pleased to offer a varied menu. Please tell us in advance if you have any special dietary requirements – or if there’s anything you just don’t like – and we’ll do our very best to accommodate you.

  • We escaped our hectic lives in the UK for Samoëns because we love the scenery, the lifestyle, the skiing, the food… and we hope you’ll feel the same way. We want you to enjoy a luxury chalet holiday in relaxed surroundings, and to feel as comfortable as you do in your own home – without the work!

    We scoured the French mountains and valleys in search of the perfect spot, and soon settled on Samoëns, mainly because of its unspoilt charm and its central location in the fantastic Grand-Massif ski area. After a year of property hunting, we found the farm, in the middle of a small hamlet, surrounded by breathtaking mountain views and bathed in sunshine. So we finally swapped our hectic lives in the UK for our new one in France.

    Su started her career in hotels and restaurants. She loved the buzz and mixing with so many different people, but after 10 years decided it was time for a change, and moved into helping other people do the work instead – in management development, then management consultancy, which she still combines with running Ferme du Ciel.

    Andy spent 25 years as an engineer in the RAF before taking early retirement (he thought!) five years ago. On leaving the RAF he bravely undertook hotel work for a while – to learn how not to do it…

    How did a management consultant and an RAF engineer end up here? Well, we decided to treat ourselves to a gap year (and a half – it was so good) and spent a winter running a ski chalet in Chamonix. We had such fun that we decided to buy one and do it ourselves. So here we are – looking forward to our sixth season, and to welcoming you for a fun-filled, memorable holiday.
  • Compared to other alpine destinations, you’ll find getting to Ferme du Ciel a breeze. The pretty, traditional village of Samoëns is located just an hour’s drive from Geneva International Airport, on easy-to-navigate roads, so you’ll be off the plane and in the chalet before you know it. Wherever your journey begins, you can be sure it will end with a welcome glass of champagne in beautifully invigorating surroundings…

    Ferme du Ciel is the revived hub of Mathonex, a tiny hamlet of Samoëns in the Haute Savoie region of the French Alps. Less than an hour from Geneva but miles away from reality, it's an easily accessible luxury alpine escape.

    Centrally located in the Grand Massif area, the ski domaine incorporates Samoëns, Flaine, Morillon, Les Carroz and Sixte. There is something for everyone with 265 km of interconnected pistes, where you can ski from resort to resort without taking your skis off! There are 75 lifts, 53 blue runs, 51 red runs, 14 black runs, and stacks of off-piste.
