The best of Megeve's luxury is combined with three centuries of history
Chalet La Ferme des Petites Frasses is an authentic 18th Century farm house located in Megève, surrounded by nine hectares of pastoral meadows, forest and two small rivers. The chalet is situated next to the ski slopes with the village centre less than 10 minutes away by car.
With its unique character, the chalet has been renovated in traditional alpine style and offers the highest standard of service in an exclusive and secluded location.
The owner and local designers have set modern touches with a traditional interior: floors, walls and ceilings are all wood-panelled, and the decor has been brought up-to-date with contemporary furnishings. The emphasis is on a warm, homely style with plenty of natural materials.
On the ground floor, there is a spacious living area with a rustic open fire. On one side is a cosy area with a TV hidden behind a two-way mirror and a state-of-the-art sound system, while on the other side there is a library with comfortable seating and mountain views. The main living room has an informal dining space and additionally, there is a dining space with a large table for elegant dinners and parties. In the living room, in front of the fireplace or out on the terrace with breath-taking views, guests can enjoy homemade dishes cooked by the Chef with locally farmed and fresh ingredients.
The chalet has a beautiful Spa with sauna, hammam and outdoor Jacuzzi, where the staff of the chalet can organise on request yoga & pilates classes, a la carte massages, beauticians, manicurists, relaxation sessions, slimming therapy and other treatments.
The chalet comprises six rooms with areas ranging from 25 to 70 m2. All the bedrooms have a magnificent view over the Mont d'Arbois, Rochebrune or Mont-Blanc, and each has an individual design where woods, furs, wools, contemporary textiles, leather and silverware create an authentic alpine atmosphere. Storage is hidden in the panelled walls or in separate walk-in dressing rooms. Two of the rooms share a bathroom to form a family suite, while the rest are en-suite. The master bedroom is superbly decorated with a large hydro-bath and views of the Mont Blanc.
Whilst located near the village, the chalet has a helicopter pad and guests can be dropped directly on the ski slopes of Switzerland, Italy or anywhere else in France for an afternoon of shopping.

Megève was developed in the 1920s for Baroness de Rothschild of the famous banking family and is now renowned as the fashionable resort of choice.
Situated 10 km off the main road from Geneva to Chamonix in the Evasion Mont Blanc ski area, Megève has small-town charm mixed with a sophisticated ambience and is considered one of the most chic ski resorts of the Alps.
The Haute Savoie village is built around a fine medieval church set in a traffic-free main square where designer boutiques, fantastic restaurants, excellent children’s facilities and horse-drawn carriages mean Megève is on a par with the exclusivity of Courchevel 1850.
With its 325 km of pistes on beautiful tree-lined slopes with picturesque views of the surrounding mountains, Megève is ideal for intermediate skiers on relaxing family holidays and there is plenty of cross-country skiing too, with some 43 miles of Alpine trails.
The resort it also a fantastic summer destination with hiking, canyoning, rafting, mountain biking, and golf just some of the many outdoor activities to be enjoyed.
