Chalet Eco Farm in Les Houches is a superbly restored farmhouse dating from the 1780's. It offers the discerning skier a wonderful homely mountain lodge and an impressive array of eco credentials to satisfy even the most environmentally conscious!
Over four years (2004-2008) Chalet Eco Farm was totally re-built using the original panelling, locally sourced oak and beautiful Italian limestone, slate and marble. Even some of the furniture, the doors and window frames have been handmade using reclaimed wood to enhance the authenticity of the building.
Located in the village of Les Houches and within a couples of minutes' walk to the ski lifts, you are right in the heart of the 'Pays du Mont Blanc' domain with ski in and ski out possibilities and easy access to all the delights of the Chamonix valley and satellite resorts of Courmayeur and Megeve.
From the outset the aim of the owners was to create a mountain lodge that expressed the quality and architectural heritage of the original building yet offered an alternative to the bland, purpose built modern chalets. They wanted to retain as many of the original features of this farm as possible so they exposed all the roof purlins and rafters and put in huge Velux windows to allow the daylight to flood in. The main living and kitchen area is open-plan offering a wonderful large space to enjoy and admire the views of the valley from the massive picture windows and balcony. The hand-made kitchen continues this style with a beautiful marble clad work station, large stainless gas cooker and beautiful slate flooring.
There is a fabulous 6 metre long swim-spa offering a separate Jacuzzi at one end. Enjoy an evening of well-being and combine these facilities with a delicious aromatherapy massage or session with a personal trainer who will come to the chalet.
There is also an excellent concierge service which ensures pre-booked ski passes and equipment which can be delivered direct to the chalet. Included in the price is a housekeeping service on alternate days of your holiday. The maid can also shop in advance for your group and will make up the beds ready for your arrival. Bath towels and bathrobes for the Jacuzzi are also supplied.
Please note that the owners of the chalet live in a separate ground floor residence.
Lots of charm and character, just how it should be when you go skiing in the Alps. This classic chalet is run by a small operator who pride themselves in the food they serve and the service they provide. We recommend this chalet highly.
