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!
Megeve is an expensive village to stay in. There is cheaper accommodation available elsewhere but in comparison to many of the other expensive hotels in Megeve, the cost, although expensive, appears to be quite reasonable. As one would expect, the service you get is exceptional. On arrival, your car is taken to the underground car park under the hotel free of charge. The hotel itself has a ski shop on site where one can rent skis and boots at a reasonable cost. We were able to leave all our equipment at the shop and pick it up each day, one of two courtesy vehicles were available to take you directly from the ski shop to the lifts every day. The drop off point for the most popular lift is in the middle of the village at the Mont Blanc hotel, a sister hotel of the group. Equally this was the pickup point in the evening for your return back to the hotel. The shuttle service was quick and efficient and much appreciated and free. The property itself is spread over quite a large area which gives the feeling of spaciousness. The rooms are very well appointed in a style throughout the property of renovated old farmhouse wood which gives a very characteristic appearance to the entire property. There is a very well appointed spa with two swimming pools, one for children and one for adults. There is an adult area with sauna and turkish bath as well as a relaxation room. In addition there is a small fitness room. What is particularly delightful is an outside Jacuzzi and sauna. The catering is outstanding. We just paid for bed and breakfast at the hotel giving us the option of either eating out or not as the feeling took us. In fact in the hotel itself there are three separate dining rooms, one a traditional restaurant, a second restaurant that tends to focus on cheese dishes such as fondue, and a third restaurant that is quite expensive offering a truffle menu. In addition you are able to use the hotel shuttle service to go to the other two sister hotels of the group that are more in the centre of the village, the Mont Blanc hotel and the Lodge. You are able to have dinner at these hotels if desired. The staff were extremely helpful to whatever request we asked. Although we do speak French, English is universal throughout the hotel. The service is efficient and well run. In summary, it is expensive but you certainly get what you pay for at les Fermes de Marie. I was quite impressed by the whole experience and if return visits are anything to go by, I will be booking the same hotel for next ski season.
Spent a weekend with my wife and good friends to enjoy skiing and a great SPA. Hotel is luxurious but very noisy as there was a group of younger drunken people being very loud and impolite !!! They should forbid such a behavior It was not what we expected from such a 5* Hotel with such premium prices!! Extremely noisy!!!
This was our third visit to Megeve and our third in Fermes de Maria. Loved everything about it. The service, the room, the location - everything. Can't wait to return. The nice breakfast buffet spread makes a big difference to me before heading out to the slopes and you won't be disappointed with what's on offer in the morning. The jacuzzi is hot and the spa area is world class.
This is a wonderful place in Megeve that would be perfect for those seeking comfort and coziness in Megeve. The staff are friendly and helpful, the food is good. I will give this hotel a personal four rather than five star rating because of the rooms and the lack of full and prompt 24 hour room service. The rooms are poorly lit, have amenities much less than other 5 star hotels, the bathrooms lack privacy, and the climate control is poor-it gets too hot. That being said it is perfect for those who seek a log cabin experience.
