Epic Europe



More than just a hotel, Les Fermes de Marie is a destination in itself. Jocelyne and Jean-Louis Sibuet, native Savoyards, have become known for their imaginative hotel projects. In the 1990s they created Les Fermes de Marie, a new concept in luxury lodging: a hamlet composed of nine centuries-old mountain chalets that were dismantled from various alpine locations and reassembled in a 5-acre park that's a lovely 15-minute walk from the village, following a mountain stream.

ROOMS: With a total of 71 rooms and suites, the interlinked chalets combine Savoyard simplicity, rustic antique decor and absolute luxury. For those who are looking for more privacy, two private chalets are available, Chalet des Fermes, is a spectacular three-story, five-bedroom lodge with cathedral ceilings, full kitchen, sauna, massage area and fitness room, overlooking the Massif du Jaillet.


FOOD & DRINKS: The complex includes a bar and two restaurants, one traditional French, the other offering alpine specialties including many cheese dishes.


Restaurant Traditionnel advocates cuisine using fresh produce for traditional, elegant oven-cooked dishes. The menu features cuisine that pays particular attention to nutritional balance, energy and fitness, without losing out on flavor.


At Restaurant Alpin, you will truly experience real Savoyard traditions. Sample alpine specialties, such as cheese fondue, raclette or the lesser-known pella. And there is always the dessert trolley, where the inimitable Mont-Blanc gateau rises proudly between the blueberry tart and the poached vanilla pears.


SPA & WELLNESS: The Spa of Les Fermes de Marie is a lovely mountain forest-themed spa. It carries the very essence of the philosophy developed by the Pure Altitude brand, created by the Sibuet Family and sold throughout France. Treatment rituals that combine gentle gestures and effective ingredients for powerful results. Additional facilities include an indoor swimming pool surrounded by bay windows, indoor and outdoor Jacuzzis, indoor and outdoor saunas and a fitness room.


LOCATION: 10-minute walk from the village, following a mountain stream, 2 minutes drive.

  • "Epic Europe has coordinated several corporate events for us over the past 5 years, and I cannot imagine a more professional operation to handle all of the details. From a team-building event for 50 people in a 17th-century castle atop a mountain pass, to marketing conferences and catalog shoots, their knowledge of the best locations in the Alps is second-to-none, and they are as good as it gets at being creative." - E.P., Lugano CH
  • "A day of heliskiing in Italy culminated with a sunset run off the Breuil saddle of the Matterhorn - one of the most thrilling runs of my life - and we left our tracks in a place where they remained for a week afterward, reminding us of the best day of skiing in our life!" - WG, CT USA
  • "Epic Europe's custom road biking trip that they put together for my buddy's bachelor party was great - the right combination of killer rides, great hotels, and outstanding restaurants. Great guides, and overall a perfect trip." - A.S., London UK
  • "I would have to say that Verbier and Zermatt might be the best places I have ever ridden a mountain bike, and I couldn't imagine going without the help of Epic Europe's guides. It was a dream trip for sure." - B.S., PA USA
  • “The team at Epic Europe created the most incredible trip for us, where everything came together seamlessly, and we never had to think about what came next - it just magically happened as if it was meant to be. That takes real talent, and they make it look easy." - B.N., WY USA
  • "Hiking in the Alps has always been on my bucket list, but I wasn't sure that a typical trip was my style. Epic Europe designed a custom route for our group, staying in the best little inns and hotels, and we felt like we had the trails to ourselves. I will come back again and again to explore new trails with their guides every year that I can!" - R.B., NY USA
  • "I have done trips in the Alps and surrounding regions with Epic Europe for the past 4 years, and every one has been unique and surpassed the last. The experiences that they deliver due to their personal relationships are a window into the real life in these incredible locations, and they share these friendships with us." - K.B., CT USA
  • "Our family spent last Christmas in Zermatt on a bespoke Epic Europe ski trip. The special thought and care that they put into our holiday made it our best yet." - L.M.; CA USA
