Property Description

This beautiful farmhouse with it's beams and original features has been carefully restored to provide modern-day comfort with a traditional feel. The original wooden chimney breast in the former barn now houses the open fire in the newly created open plan living space that has bi folding doors out into the garden. The small river that runs alongside the farmhouse makes this a stunning location that is secluded but not remote being only 1.5 km from the village centre of Le Biot.

From the games room you step out into a pretty garden with a wooden deck with a hot tub area and a garden shed/wood store. Accessed from the open plan living space the garden is lawn, is well stocked with flowers and shrubs and has a seating area under a pagoda.

Le Biot offers basic amenities, having a bakery where you can buy freshly baked breads, cakes and pastries, a tabac and a couple of restaurant and a post office. St Jean D’Aulps and Morzine are only 4km and 12km away so it isn't difficult to access more shops and supermarkets. It’s a sought after village so properties don’t remain for sale for very long. Le Biot is deceptive, though, as although it appears to have no connection to the frenetic ski resorts that are so well known to all, this little village actually lies in the very heart of Les Portes du Soleil, one of the largest ski areas in the world. It has access to miles and miles of the best skiing the Alps can provide.

Portes du Soleil Ski Area

600 km of skiing in 2 countries making the Portes du Soleil the biggest international ski area in the world.

Here skiing is a journey, with different panoramas and routes to look forward to every day, and each of our 12 village resorts offering a charm of their own.

The resorts are amongst the most well known, including Morzine, Avoriaz, Les Gets, Abondance, Chatel and St Jean DAulps to name but a few.

They also offer excellent opportunities for downhill mountain bikers outside the winter months.

As a popular holiday destination in both summer and winter, these resorts offer investment potential. So whether you are looking for a quiet and peaceful family resort (Chatel or St Jean D'Aulps for example) or something a little more lively (Morzine) the Portes du Soleil has it all.

Within easy distance of the International Airport at Geneva plus close to Lake Geneva, this ski area is the perfect destination.

Morzine Ski Resort

Situated mid-way between Mont Blanc and Lake Geneva, the ever popular resort of Morzine is absolutely stunning, well known for its Alpine scenery, nestled between forests and summits. Life is leisurely, and the village although vibrant and bustling has lost nothing of its original charm and Savoyard way of life. Ideally situated right in the middle of the Portes du Soleil, Morzine is the gateway to a marvellous winter playground of 650 km of ski-slopes where you can ski from French into Switzerland and back again all in one day.  When it comes to lunchtime you are spoilt for choice with all the mountain restaurants scattered everywhere.

 

In summer, these slopes become sign-posted footpaths for trekking and moutain biking. Originally life in Morzine was one of agriculture and slate-mines but with the opening of the ‘Grand Hotel’ (first tourist hotel built in the 1920’s) and its owner François Baud opened up a new opportunities for the village and it’s in habitants. Then in 1934 the Pleney cable car was opened and the thick covering of snow started some previously unknown sports: tobogganing, ski-jöring (towed behind a horse), the beginnings of downhill skiing and even ski-jumping!

 

If ski or snow boarding instruction is the order of the day there are avariety of French and English speaking Instructors in the ski schools.

 

There is a vast array of shops, bars and restaurants, offering plenty to non-skiers as well and for after ski fun.  This makes Morzine a good all year round resot for those who live here and those with Holiday homes.
