Dogs have always been welcome at la Ferme du Soleil, provided that they are well behaved and do not bark. There are two rooms which might suit dogs particularly well, one slightly nicer than the other, as they lead directly to the outside through French windows.
We have a dog who sometimes comes with us. The easiest way to bring your dogs up is to park at Les Outalays and walk up the track. Alternatively you are allowed to bring them on Le Rosay lift from Le Grand Bornand.
If there are other people staying at the time, we may ask them if they mind. We may make a small charge per night for your dog.
If you need any special food for your dog, please arrange this with us well in advance.
Please do not let them sleep on the beds and clean up after them outside the house!

Less convenient is to travel by bus via Annecy:
I am arriving by bus, how do I get to La Ferme?
You should take the ski bus from Le Grand Bornand to Chinaillon and get off at the stop for Ski Service, the ski shop at the bottom of Les Gettiers lift. Your bags will be collected from Ski Service’s special baggage storage (consign) area. Let us know in advance so that we can make arrangements. If you have no bags or just bags that you can carry yourself, there is the alternative of taking the Le Rosay gondola from Le Grand Bornand and walking up the track to La Ferme.
