La Ferme d’Elise is a superb chalet located in a quiet hamlet of the Vallée de la Manche, close to the Nyon cable car. Built over 3 floors, this 10 bedroom chalet feels comfortably spacious, without being of overly immense proportions.
The chalet is entered at street level, with a substantial garage for at least 2 cars, ideal for storing bikes, canoes and other large sporting equipment, as well as keeping the car under cover. There is also a practical ski room with heated boot warmers, perfect for slipping out of your skis and into your slippers.
There are 3 bedrooms on this floor, one double with en suite bathroom, and a family suite of two doubles sharing a bathroom and separate WC. This could easily be made into one large double bedroom. Relaxing down-time is also catered for on this floor, with a large, fully kitted out cinema room, a sauna with shower and separate massage/treatment room, and of course, the essential wine cellar!
Upstairs on the first floor, reached by stairs or by lift, there are a further 7 bedrooms, including a large master suite. All bedrooms have their own en-suite bathroom, with bathtub. If your needs don’t extend to quite so many bedrooms, some of the rooms could be combined to create fewer, larger bedrooms, or transformed into a home office, reading room, or gym.
The top floor of Ferme d’Elise is devoted to the kitchen and living space, and is fully open-plan. There is plenty of wow factor, with huge feature windows and a vaulted ceiling. The suspended fireplace adds a focal point, and the built-in bar is perfect for aspiring mixologists to practice their vodka martinis, shaken-not-stirred! The fitted kitchen with solid wood units and natural stone worktops is equipped with all the mod cons you would expect.
Outside, the space has been beautifully landscaped. The secluded deck with hot-tub is the ideal space to unwind after a hard day on the slopes whilst taking in the panoramic views. The chalet is easily accessible, with plenty of off-street parking for several vehicles. For welcoming guests with limited mobility, bringing in the shopping, or if you are simply exhausted after a day on the slopes, the property is also equipped with a lift to all floors.
The ski bus stop is around 50m from Elise. The Nyon cable-car is just one stop on the bus and, at only about 600m away, is even within walking distance. Morzine town centre is around 10 minutes’ walk away, offering a wide selection of shops, bars, restaurants and other attractions.
