Stylish alpine B&B, Montalbert
|La Ferme Blanche is our chic alpine B&B retreat in an unspoilt mountain hamlet below the ski resort of Montalbert (La Plagne). It has flagstone and wood floors, 3 charming bedrooms, thick stone walls and stunning mountain views. Dogs are welcome too!|
Built into the hillside on the edge of the tiny hamlet of Montvilliers, La Ferme Blanche has lots of lovely walks, cycling and skiing on the doorstep. It’s in an ideal spot for touring in the Alps and is just a short drive to the ski slopes and lifts of Montalbert (La Plagne / Paradiski). We are dog friendly, so you're welcome to bring your dog and enjoy wonderful walks from the door all year round.

Montvilliers is an old alpine farming hamlet surrounded by ancient apple orchards, beautiful wild flower meadows and forest. There are lots of good walks, cross country skiing and mountain biking routes straight from the door. We can provide maps and route suggestions, or help you hire a guide.
The hamlet is very quiet, reached along narrow country lanes with very little through traffic. There's a bakery and village store in Longefoy, the next village (20 minute walk), and you can also walk up to the ski resort of Plagne Montalbert (25 minutes depending on conditions, unmarked forest trails). Its tranquil old fashioned alpine atmosphere offers a welcome contrast to the ugly high rise resorts common in the French Alps.
For B&B guests, we offer a table d'hôte service on Fridays and Saturdays (35 euros per person for 3 courses + wine + hot drinks), or you can try the restaurants in Montalbert, just 5 minutes from the house by car (only open during the summer & winter seasons), or in nearby Aime (15 minutes drive, open most of the year).
The farmhouse is in a very convenient spot for all sorts of mountain activities including walking, cycling, white water rafting, mountain biking and skiing. All are available within a short drive of the chalet.
It's also just a short hop to the lifts in Montalbert, La Plagne - 5 minutes up the hill by car (free shuttle service for half board guests in winter).
The farmhouse is open in the summer and winter seasons. There is no minimum stay, come and go any day you wish.
