We are a family run business and live here in our farmhouse ‘Ferme Les Bouts’. We truly believe we live in a corner of French mountain paradise and are excited that you are interested in staying here for your holiday. What more could you want than indulging in snow sports through the winter and exploring the mountains on bikes and foot through the summer.
Ferme Les Bouts is located in the sleepy village of La Cote d’Arbroz, only 10 minutes drive from Morzine, and 6 minutes drive to the nearest chair lift on Mont Chery, Les Gets. With views we feel are some of the best in the valley, across to Montriond, the Ardent Valley and up as high as Avoriaz, we are in an idyllic position for you to explore the whole area all year round with so much right on the doorstep.
We purchased Ferme Les Bouts in 2013 and completed renovating both of our rental properties in 2016. Both our properties are unique and individual: Petite Ferme Les Bouts is a spacious self contained 3 bedroom property within the main farmhouse, sleeping up to 6 guests, while Grenier Les Bouts is a detached stone building providing a luxurious mountain escape for a couple.
La Cote d’Arbroz village has it’s own restaurant only a 5 minute walk from us where you can also order fresh bread and croissants daily. Essert Romand at the bottom of the hill 3 minutes away offers La Petite Auberge restaurant as well as a small pizza take away. There are many more restaurants in Morzine, Les Gets, Montriond and the surrounding villages for you to try out….please ask us for our top choices.
12 villages make up the Portes du Soleil, and La Cote d’Arbroz village at 1200m altitude rubs shoulders with the charming alpine village of Morzine, probably the best known of the villages. Morzine bursts with alpine charm throughout the year with outstanding winter lights through the snowy months and stunning flower displays in the summer. Ice rinks and horse drawn carriages are all part of daily life here in the winter, while bustling local markets, spectacular flower displays, mountain meadows scattered with alpine flowers and herds of bell wearing cows are what we are about in the summer.
Whether you want to hop on your bike, ski the back country, hike the mountains, swim in the lakes, sail across Lake Geneva or relax at a mountain restaurant with a vin chaud or refreshing glass of rose, you will not tire of the activities there are to do here. The mountains offer something for everyone and you won’t be disappointed.
During the winter the Portes du Soleil boasts to be one of the largest ski playgrounds in the world with 196 lifts and an amazing 650km of skiable terrain. The area offers skiing for all abilities and allows you to ski across the French-Swiss border as you please. Summer months it’s known to be the mecca for mountain bikers with thousands of kilometres of down hill and cross country trails available. In addition road bikers are in their element enjoying miles and miles of stunning routes throughout the Haute Savoie region.
Your own transport is necessary, as there are currently no public transport links to and from the village, however private transport for your stay can easily be arranged. Please ask and we will be more than happy to help.
