Chalet Ferme Du Rys

Ferme du Rys is a stunning renovated farmhouse dating back to 1798. It is arguably one of the finest renovations in the Alps perfectly blending the original features with modern luxuries and exquisite interior design.
Located just above the traditional alpine village of La Chapelle d’Abondance. This gorgeous renovated farmhouse offers the ultimate ski holiday experience – with hot-tub, cinema, games room and sauna, as well as magnificent views.

The large open plan living area was formally used to dry hay and is full of original features – most notably the original wooden beams, section of glass floor, log store, central board formed concrete plinth with 2-sided wood burner & stunning mountain views through the three huge sliding glass doors which take you onto a panoramic balcony.The interior design is elegant and carefully planned to compliment the natural beauty of this traditional farm creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The reading snug is cosy & idyllic! A great place to escape the world and enjoy a few moments with a good book. 

Ferme du Rys has been carefully designed to incorporate so many luxury facilities, you may find it hard to leave each day! The cinema room which originally formed part of the stables along with the boot room is the ultimate in luxury with 65 inch OLED TV, cinema surround sound, streaming channels and PlayStation 4 all enjoyed from stunning 2-tier seating. There is a cosy TV snug on the living room floor perfect for snuggling up and taking in the gorgeous mountain views through the large picture window which faces the Dent du Midi. On the lower ground floor which formally contained a wine cellar & store for the farmer is now a spa treatment zone with 8 person sauna, relaxing area & shower. Just let us know if you’d like us to arrange massage treatments at the farm. Ferme du Rys also boasts a wonderful hot-tub and decking area taking in the stunning views and tranquil mountain setting. If you still have some energy after a day on the slopes the Games Room is the place to be for apres-ski entertainment, with pool table and table tennis.

The open plan kitchen and dining areas are modern and stylish, sitting perfectly alongside the old wood and original beams.  It’s an amazing space to prepare and enjoy dinner with family and friends. The kitchen and dining area have amazing views of the ‘Dents du Midi’ Swiss mountain range, and the marble kitchen island provides the perfect spot for socialising and catching up on the ski stories of the day.
