"This quest for harmony with nature is reflected in the philosophy of Les Fermes de Marie. The Sibuet family's Megevan property is home to two chalets, the Chalet des Fermes and the Chalet du Skieur, dating from 1939. For Maxime Levotre - husband of Marie Sibuet, founder and director of the Chalets des Fermes collection - these establishments "feel like a refuge. It's a cocoon that lets you enjoy your family or friends without being cut off from the hotel and its atmosphere. Its graphic, raw, uncluttered decor is reminiscent of the functional design imagined by Henry Jacques Le Même for his concept of the skier's chalet, which, as early as 1926, offered a luminous, spacious and chic habitat." One hundred years on, the mountain proves that it has lost none of its elegant appeal."
