A LUXURY ALPINE RETREAT

Nikki and Hugh invite you to stay with them in their beautiful 1900s farmhouse in Fontaine Naves, in the heart of the French Alps. Chalet Savoie Faire is a typical Savoyard barn which has been transformed into a luxury & bespoke accommodation.

Fontaines Naves is only 30 minute drive from the ski resorts of Valmorel and Meribel/ Courchevel. Sleeping up to eight guests Chalet Savoie Faire has been designed with flexibility in mind and is available to rent all year round. The property can be reserved on a bed and breakfast, fully catered or self catered basis or even a mixture during your stay.
