View Location Map
Chalet Ferme du Rys is a converted traditional French mountain farmhouse, which has retained much of its 18th century charm and natural beauty but yet providing all the comforts of modern living. The chalet sits high on the side of the valley near the small village of La Chapelle d'Abondance and is an ideal mountain hideaway for a quiet retreat. With five en-suite bedrooms, this luxury property can sleep up to 13 guests.
Ferme du Rys has a large open-plan living area with many original features from the days when this space was used to dry hay for the farm livestock. The most notable of features are the original wooden beams which have been married in with the modern touches including sleek flooring and a glass section looking down to the floor below. The main lounge space sits to the front half of the chalet and offers ample seating, a modern log fire and large French doors out onto the balcony. It's a cosy and inviting space with wonderful views of the mountains beyond.
The lounge also backs onto the contemporary kitchen, which is divided to the living space by the breakfast bar island with stone worktops. It's a great space to host a celebration or to just enjoy being in the company of friends and family. A separate door leads to the dining area which offers a glass table and seating for 10 guests. Off from this space, you will find a separate TV snug which would be the perfect hideaway for the kids in the group.
On the lower ground floor, which formally contained a wine cellar & store for the farmer, you will now discover a spa treatment zone with an 8-person sauna, relaxing area & shower. It is possible to arrange massage treatments during your stay, just ask the chalet team.
Heading up to the ground floor, you will discover the games room. This is the place to be for family entertainment with a pool table and table tennis table. If you’re too tired from your day's adventures, stay on the ground floor and head to the cinema room with its 65-inch OLED TV, cinema surround sound, streaming channels and a games console all enjoyed from stunning 2-tier seating.
The chalet contains five, well appointed, en-suite bedrooms over three floors. These comprise four double/twin bedrooms along with a children’s bedroom complete with two bunk beds and single bed alongside. Chalet Ferme du Rys will sleep 8 adults and 5 children in absolute comfort.
