Dating from 1865, Ferme Le Chateau is an exquisitely finished ski-in, ski-out 6 bedroom, completely restored farmhouse situated in the small hamlet of La Turche, a 15-minute walk to the village of Les Gets, built of stone and timber with a wood shingle roof.
Entirely private, this beautifully restored property has piste access to a winter and summer 6-person Perrieres chairlift giving access to the 650km Portes du Soleil mountain bike and ski areas.
The property has 5 spacious oak floored ensuite bedrooms, most with a full bath and shower. The sixth bedroom currently serves as a private office with a roof light, storage and balcony access.
The focal point of the chalet is its magnificent 60m² oak floored living room with a huge Savoyard style fireplace, a 6 m high ceiling and two large roof lights. The room spans the length of the property adding natural light and a wonderful ambience to this floor with outstanding views of the mountains and valleys.
The ground floor includes a large fully equipped Poltroni kitchen area, thoughtfully designed with three sinks, two dishwashers, two ovens and two plate warmers as well a large American style double fridge/freezer. There is also a breakfast dining area within the kitchen.
Linked to the kitchen, the main dining area includes spacious sofa seating around a classic-stone fireplace as well as a 12-person dining table and a mini cocktail area. This well-thought-out dining area gives access to two ground floor terraces.
In addition, there is a 40m² lower ground floor which could be used as a home cinema, sauna or gym and includes a 650 bottle wine cellar set up in the traditional Savoyard style with a marble tasting table.
Externally, the property has pebble terraces and a beautifully manicured flower garden which surround the cream gravel driveway with parking for 8 cars. The farm sits on a large plot of 2221m² with planning permission to build a second large chalet of 300m².
- A beautiful 6 bedroom farm renovated with quality materials in the La Turche area of Les Gets

Our opinionFerme le Chateau is a rare opportunity to acquire a truly ski-in, ski-out farm in the Portes du Soleil area. The peaceful area is surrounded by pine forests and mountains, giving the place a rural feel, but it is only a short walk from Les Gets centre. The property is on a huge plot of over 2000m² so there is an opportunity to build another chalet.
