This is the reputed to be the oldest building in Morzine. It is a lovely place, very historic and amazing character. The evening meal is a wonderful experience, all the guests and the owner and his wife sit at one big table. That means around 20-30 at the table in a beautiful room lit by candle chandeliers. The 6 course meal (including canapes and petit fours) was good food, well presented. The service is good and everyone chats, complete strangers or not, just like a big dinner party.
We visited The Farmhouse for a small wedding at the start of 2019.the venue is very quaint and the food was good. However the experience was dreadful as it was clear the wedding was taken on as an after thought.
We were kept in specific rooms and any time anyone left those rooms we were ushered back in and told in no uncertain terms that we should "stay in our area". This was difficult as toilets weren't signposted and at various times of the evening we had to go outside and around the building to get to the toilets as we were not allowed inside.
There were no soft drink alternatives to the champagne reception and when asked for one it seemed like a chore for the staff to get it. Wedding guests were not allowed into the bar to purchase their own drinks and there was no system in place for us to have them brought from the bar to the room.
The more senior staff were dressed in black t shirts and fleeces, not really in keeping with the waiting staff (who were very nice) who looked the part for a wedding in such an environment.
Our child (nearly 2) was offered a kids meal, which was just the same starter as the adults and then no main meal was brought out for him.
As a venue for a wedding it was idyllic, the food was good, the waiting staff helpful but the senior staff made many of the wedding party feel unwanted.
There was a definate feel that the small family wedding group were not welcome which spoilt an otherwise excellent day. If a venue takes on a wedding I would expect them to pull out all the stops to make the day or evening as special as possible for the couple and their guest. Unfortunately this was not the case in our experience.
I'm sure if you stayed at the Farmhouse you might have a different experience, but as guest for an evening it was a negative one for us.
Wonderful 18th century farmhouse with a super room. We had the corner room which was light and airy and very comfortable. The staff were always there to help or serve drinks but were non-intrusive. Lovely gardens and easy walk into town for all the restaurants. A great experience.
Following a recent stay at The Farmhouse we want to thank all the staff, especially James, for their professionalism and for looking after us so well. We were instantly made to feel welcome and there is a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere throughout.
The Farmhouse is a wonderful property with amazing character and is in an ideal position for a short walk to all the restaurants and activities in Morzine yet being in a very peaceful setting in its own garden overlooking the old town and with views of the mountains.
All rooms have their own individual style and our room was The Grange which is a large, light and airy room with its own balcony overlooking the garden. We loved it!
We certainly plan to return to The Farmhouse in the future.
From the minute we were met to the second we were dropped back to Geneva Airport by the legendary alpine drivers (watchya chaps! ;-), my snowboarding buddy Mark and I had just the nicest time possible at the Farmhouse.
Apart from the fact that Khione (the Greek goddess of snow) knew we were coming and the best dump of the season preceeded our arrival...
Every morning we were woken by the faint knock from one of the delightful chalet girls with a welcome cup of tea left outside the room! (hello ladies!)
When the cobwebs of apres ski were swept away, a glorious breakfast revitalised with talk of the day's mountain weather, skiing agenda and fresh orange juice-a-plenty.
Following a terrific day's snowboarding, every evening we were spoilt rotten, first with canapés in the warm inviting bar second with the wonderful company and third with a tantalising assortment of food fit for a king. Conversation and digestion aided by a lovely and ever-flowing drop of wine.
The friendships you develop over that candlelit table and then on the magnificent slopes of Morzine, Les Gets, Chatel and Avoriaz will be ones that I believe will last a lifetime.
Thank you so much to Dorian and the entire farmhouse family for making our stay so memorable. If you'll have us back, we'd love to join you all again next year!
God help you... ;-)
