Exquisitely renovated, Ferme Gavard is the perfect mountain retreat to unwind in style. At an altitude of 930m, this 19th century Savoyard farmhouse fuses sumptuous comfort with traditional alpine charm to create an impressive conversion. Nestled in the sunny south facing hamlet of Plaigne d'Etry, this peaceful farmhouse luxuriates in all-round views. It's quiet, secluded location is within easy reach of both the Portes du Soleil (650 Kms of piste) and Grand Massif ski domains (265 Kms of piste) with Morillon (9km), Les Gets (19km) only a short drive away. It's just under an hour from Geneva airport.
Renovated in 2008, Ferme Gavard exemplifies authentic local craftsmanship at its best. It's sheer attention to detail is second to none, mindful of the building's integrity. It's structure remains true to the original framework with the exception of the double garage and laundry room which was added in 2009. The subtle use of interior glass panels to zone spaces creates a playful luminosity against the farm's old timbers. All materials, fixtures and fittings have been sourced to the highest standard. The place has been meticulously insulated with hypoallergenic natural fibers to create an energy efficient and sound proof environment with gas fired underfloor heating and solid oak floors throughout.
