Clos Parchet farm and folk museum tour

Discover the traditional life on the slopes of Giffre mountains. Discover an old farm of the 19th century located in nature. Live a sensory experience, expressions of the everyday-life of that time.

There are events around the bread oven in the summer
The Guides to the Heritage of Savoy have brought together an impressive collection of period utensils to illustrate everyday life on the slopes around Samoens. Having established the idea of reviving this traditional farm as it was in 1815, the Clos Parchet Farm Folk Museum opened to the public in 1994. Take a step back in time by visiting this traditional farm which has been restored to its original 19th century condition. See how the living room and kitchen would have looked at this time. Imagine the living conditions of a farming family of that period. Farm work in the surrounding fields and the trades of the period are also illustrated by a large collection of objects, displayed in the barn. The visit ends with a free tasting session.

Warm clothes and mountain shoes recommended.
