Jackie and LIston are just fantastic hosts who make you feel like friends as soon as you meet them. The food is good and beautifully cooked and Liston takes pride in the...

We recently returned from a two week break in one of the refurbished gites. We (2 adults and kids 16 and 11) had a fantastic time, the location was absolutely beautiful, the gites had everything you needed and were clean and comfortable, but most of all we were made so welcome by the lovely owners, Jackie and Liston. Thank you...

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Liston and Jackie. They and there staff had their hands full as it was a full house enjoying fish and chip night. We had booked a b&b for the night. Jackie prepared our food as we are vegetarians just to be awkward on fish night. Despite the heavy demand both Liston...

Beautiful small hotel in the middle of nowhere. Great mountain view. Very clean and comfortable. We spend there one night on the way to Chamonix. Restaurant is perfect. Food is great. You got everything what you expect.

Jackie and Liston are two of the most geniune people you could hope to meet, They offer hospitality of a rare kind...We only booked B&B for one night expecting to move on after breakfast but instead talked into the late hours aided and abetted by free flowing wine and gorgeous cheese. This is not our style, we don't look for...

We visited La Ferme Du Lac on recommendation for an evening meal and were not at all disappointed. It is in a beautiful location with warm welcoming hosts and great food and a great atmosphere we will surely return.

I may be biased as my friends Jackie and Liston own this beautiful place and they are the perfect hosts. I would urge anyone and everyone to try it. It's a holiday retreat to die for with beautiful walks and fantastic scenery, not forgetting the scrumptious food on offer. I promise you will not be disappointed.

I've never done a review of a place I've stayed in before so the fact this was good enough that I've decided to do so says a lot in itself. I've been lucky enough to travel widely and the surroundings of La Ferme du Lac are as beautiful as I've had the pleasure of encountering. The lake side position nestled...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Family run, La Ferme du Lac is a 17th century restored farmhouse nestling at the bottom of a 25 acre wooded valley in one of the most beautiful areas of France. The location is stunning, a private valley with a dammed lake at one end, farmhouse and out-buildings in the middle and a riverside meadow with cottages and camping spaces. What more could you ask for! The night sky at La Ferme du Lac is phenomenal. Equally you will find the sunsets to be magnificent, and the sunrises are pretty spectacular too. The early morning mist rolling off the lake, with kingfishers flying by, is a sight to behold. All in all La Ferme du Lac is the ideal place for a family holiday in high season, and while children are always welcome it tends to be couples and groups that we see out of the high season. ... more   less
