Kids summertime…. At Les fermes de Marie
In the Kingdom of Les Fermes de Marie, children are royalty!
In the summertime, Les Fermes de Marie becomes a true paradise for young ones. With cookery and gardening lessons, outdoor play and discovering the mountains, it’s great to be a child in the summer in Megève!
The Children’s Hamlet
This place designed especially for children offers late afternoon entertainment from Monday to Saturday during the French school holidays. This is all organized by the Kid’s Concierge, on hand to arrange a wide variety of activities for them: face-painting workshop, dressing up, painting and magic shows, discos to party to their hears’ content, shows and cinema evenings, introductions to the kitchen garden, treasure hunts, mountain lunches on Les Fermes de Marie’s Pasture, table football tournaments and more.
Les Fermes de Marie has a superb Alpine kitchen garden where the aromatic herbs essential to the local cuisine grow, along with Edelweiss, a miracle ingredient in the Pure Altitude spa treatments. Here the children can come to the kitchen garden under a gardener’s supervision, pick seasonal fruit (mmm, those tasty red strawberries are really a treat!), plant seeds, learn more about the plants that grow there, taste mint and basil… In short, discover the joys of working the land.
While they are in the garden, the apprentice gardeners can take the opportunity to gather grass to feed the rabbits and hens. The latter, of which there are 4, never fail to provide Les Fermes de Marie with delicious eggs! Children can also take part in building and maintaining the insect hotel.
Time to eat!
A short distance from the Children’s Hamlet, in a little wooden but called a mazot with a wall of windows and views of the alpine garden, the mini-chefs discover the joys of cookery at a class designed just for them. They’ll become experts at making chocolate fondants!
And after a day out in the fresh air, they can enjoy some well-deserved waffles and cookies for tea!
