We loved our three night stay in Les Fermes de Marie. Wonderful staff with special thanks to the very welcoming Jacques for all his hiking tips, shuttles into town, water and rucksack. The decor is quintessentially rustic chic and we had a gorgeous bedroom and bathroom with lots of very welcome extra touches. The lounge and bar areas are both beautiful and charming with lovely cosy places to snuggle up with a book. The spa is excellent with two pools, one for children and a lovely adult relaxation room with next door sauna and steam rooms. We only can comment on the breakfasts which were totally delicious as we ate out the other nights. Definitely an iconic place to stay in Megève.
visited in August; hotel was full. Nice room, quiet but no aircon ( hot at night) Hotel is somewhat old world, a bit cramped when full. staff very friendly however and spa treatment good, but spa itself is also cramped. ate at hotel traditional restaurant - a bit cramped also and loud duet on site band. a pleasant - but not great exeperience.

We had not been back to the hotel since 1993, and we were concerned that its subsequent fame and success would have changed its unique character. Indeed, it has expanded over the years but it is still a marvelous, well run hotel with exceptional food. The rooms are as spacious and comfortable as ever, but what really stands out is the staff. They are pros, in the sense that they can assess very quickly who you are as a guest ( active, passive, demanding,respectful etc)and they calibrate their attention level accordingly. This is not a place where flashing money around is going to make a difference....
Beautiful set up and surroundings, rooms are very nice but restaurant service is so poor that the whole experience is tarnished. Having had 2 dinners, one afternoon tea and 2 breakfasts it is difficult not to comment on the amount of let down, despite a large number of waiters and waitresses nobody seems to know what are they suppose to do, who are they to serve, more like everyone of them running around aimlessly.We had to ask for menus to be brought to us, then try to get someone's attention to come take the order, then once food is served and eaten is another mission to ask for the table to be cleared, at no point was there someone to ask if we needed something else like more drinks or dessert. For the afternoon tea we ordered a cold platter, butter was brought but no knife, we had to "cut" the butter with a fork!!! On the one breakfast, I ostensibly left my finished cereal bowl at the edge of my table, after numerous passages of waiting staff my plate got picked up a full 25 minutes later. Breakfast starts at 7.30 am but tables are still being set up at 8 Am while early risers are already having breakfast, basically a string of faults that are not acceptable in a property of this category, being beautiful is not enough to justify the nightly rates applied.
As mentioned in the previous post, we got robbed and management did absolutely nothing to rectify the situation or even make up for what happened. We felt completely overlooked and no one gave us a second glance. Great place but sad thing about the management.
Long story short after a wonderful experience there, we had a hefty sum of money stolen from us, when our purse was under the supervision of the reception area as they willingly suggested to keep it with them. Since we had to check out early and wanted to ski. We ended up filing a police report, and the negligence by the front desk and their lack of empathy was an utter disaster. Not a single manager came to see us, they supposedly have no security cameras that oversee the front desk. We returned from our trip on the 14th of March and I emailed their entire team on March 15th, and to no avail no one has taken the time to properly reply, I didn't think it would take nearly four weeks for them to be jolted into a proper response. This is abhorrent behaviour, pompous and pretentious. One person does not represent an entire hotel and it's staff - but when you email everyone possible and not get a single befitting response that is a representation of their ethic and their carelessness towards their customers. What a disappointment.
Les Fermes de Marie is a magnificent and sprawling compound of exquisitely built traditional chalets. Everything you need is on site: from the ski rental shop, to its two pools and gym. Guests even have multiple restaurants to choose from. When you’ve exhausted what there is to see and do at Les Fermes de Marie, you can have their house car take you into town to their sister property: Hotel Mont-Blanc. If staying closer to the bars and restaurants is something you’d prefer, consider staying there instead (walking to and from the Les Fermes property is not particularly convenient). Renting ski equipment from Les Fermes is certainly seamless and all you have to do at the end of the day is have the hotel car pick you up from in front of the Hotel Mont-Blanc (which offers outdoor refreshments while you wait). However, if you want to minimize the amount of time you spend in your ski boots (particularly if you want to walk around town after skiing), consider renting from one of the shops next to the Chamois gondola. More likely than not, you’ll be starting and ending your day at that gondola.
Simply the best winter resort we ever stayed at. The scene is set on the French alps, extremely beautiful scenery which is ideal for couples as well. The rooms are rustic with a vintage feel and warm even with the cold weather making it absolutely amazing! The location, the service and especially the restaurants were more than living up to expectations.
A fantastic short break with friends, the staff were exempliary from the moment we booked and nothing was too much trouble. Transfers, ski lessons, lift passes, lunch bookings and reccomendations all taken care of without a hint of fuss. The whole hotel is wonderfully decorated in a traditional and authentic chalet feel. The only critisim could be that the rooms we had were on the small side with very limited cupboard space. The spa and wellness area are superb and a treat at the end of a days skiing. Would definitely like to return one day.
This is our fourth Maison Sibuet property and our first visit to Les Fermes. We just returned from a ski trip accompanied by our 15 year old son. The hotel itself is delightful, with an array of charming public space to enjoy a glass of wine, coffee etc. Our room was spacious and comfortable. We received excellent assistance from the concierge arranging ski passes and assistance from the ski shop being fitted for rental skis. (I would say that the rental equipment is not on par with what you get in the USA - we brought our own boots thank goodness) The food in the restaurants is outstanding and I highly recommend any traveller choose the half board option There is plenty of variety on the menu and there are several restaurants to choose from (including an option to use the sister restaurant in towns) The shuttle to the mountain was efficient. I can't wait to go back!
