Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We arrived late evening, our coach having dropped us off on the main road and our Rep escorted us to the Hotel.

It was dark when we arrived, it was snowing, and the old town looked enchanting. The walk was no more than 300m howeverthe last part required a bit of a pull up a hill, which set me puffing as I was carrying two pairs of skis!

it was a delight to enter the hotel, the old stone charm of the property was immediately apparent, and talking of charm, the reception we received from Magnus, the manager, made us feel not only at home but with an old friend.

If you want the latest in style, decor and facilities - lifts, porters, spas, swimming pools, gymnasiums and all the other trappings that the 21st century has to offer - then do not come here.

If, on the other hand, you want rustic charm with stone walls, ages old wooden floors, heavy oak doors and vaulted stone ceilings then you'll be in your element.

Our room (No 16) was one of the smallest and one of the nicest and we loved it. It's not everywhere that you have to duck your head to get into the bathroom (loved the wet floor shower) or climb steps to get in to your room.

The Dining Room was a pleasure to eat in, the food was very good and we were aware of the efforts made to accomodate all dietary needs or wishes. If you like warming, creamy soups to start your meal then you won't be disappointed.

The evening Rotisserie looked amazing, although we didn't partake as we were very comfortable with our menus, but clearly it was very popular with guests and visitors alike.

The bar was spacious, and carried an interesting range of drinks, especially beers and gins (spotted one from Cornwall!) Maybe the lights could do with being a bit brighter, but ambiance was there and the staff very helpful and accomplished (try the cocktails) .

Regardless of the charm of the place, the rooms or the food, what made La Vieille Ferme stand out head and shoulders above so many other places we've stayed (skiing or otherwise) was the Staff.

Everyone was approachable, friendly, conversational and clearly professional in carrying out their duties,. There's no doubt to our mind Magnus has a friendly team, almost like a family, and one in which he is justifiably proud.

Overall, we loved the place and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

And, finally, after a fabulous week's skiing and a very enjoyable stay here, I am pleased to report that I could scamper up that hill, with my skis, and not be out of puff - so maybe there is a sort of gym after all.

The overall impression: a really good place. The building is from the 18th Century, so there a few things that comes with that. You hear your neighbours quite well, heating system requires a substantial update and there is no elevator.

Staff: Young and friendly staff who are very keen on serving the customers in a good way. Sometimes they don't know what more senior staff would know, but no issue since they are so helpful and charming.
Rooms: Due to the structure of the building, the rooms are not always well planned. More places to hang your clothes would be appreciated. Beds are excellent. Hot water in the shower comes and goes... Cleaning is very good. Splendid view from the balcony, not all rooms have balconies though.
Wifi: sucks, sorry but it does. Invest in a few more repeaters on all floors.
Food: Breakfast is excellent. Good quality, taste and assortment. Dinner: Overall a high level, but with minor issues. One night we got fish and it was very good, but not warm. Things like that can of curse happen and it's not a big problem. Good wine list and perhaps some more senior staff would have been better for wine recommendations.
Bar: They arrange some entertainment, which is appreciated. Good selection of drinks and good service.
Location: Not the best from a "Walking to the lift" perspective, but if you get a balcony, then it is so worth it.
In all, we are very satisfied and with a few improvements, this hotel could get a 5 star rating.

Perfect hotel for our skiing holiday! Comfy bed, hot showers and amazing food! The staff were lovely and very helpful. Very close to the ski slopes and you can rent a locker in a ski shop so you don’t have to lug your gear back. Would defiantly recommend this hotel!

Relatively easy access to lifts, but up a very steep hill (and no help offered with luggage, indeed no staff at reception when we arrived mid-afternoon). Young Swedish staff are friendly, the food is generally very good. However it was amongst the worst accomodation I have stayed in in the Alps: small room with inadequate storage, 40 year old sanitaryware, leaking bath tap. No armchair or sofa in the whole place in which to relax. Room bore no resemblance to what you see on the website.

A very charming, well-run hotel in the cuter side of the village opposite Villeneuve lifts. Clean, friendly, affordable, stylish, and comfortable. The restaurant is an extra special bonus…we haven’t been bothered to leave because it’s twice as cute as anything on the same street.

My family and I went here multiple times on our trip staying at a different hotel. Bence the bartender made the most amazing Espresso Martini you’ve ever had, Sammi- his rotisserie- I would happily sit next to the fire for the rest of my life as his food was outstanding. A truly rare experience with the very best flavours ive had! Totally worth the trip whilst skiing, hats of to the manager Sarret for running such an amazing place!

Hotel - steep road up to hotel, room we had was ok, warm, comfortable, its an old building, so expect a few creaks, with plenty of stairs - 169 the lovely housekeeper said.

Food- superb, high quality everyday.

Lovely hotel, created on an old farm. Quiet and extremely clean. Great dinners with a gourmet selection and cocktails. Just 300 meters from the closest sky area called Aravet. Thanks, Sara and the crew, since we have been feeling comfortable at home!

Despite the fact, you might have a slightly treacherous last 50yds up a steep hill with your ski gear, what you find when you step through the door of Vielle Ferme is a historic delight.
If you are looking for modern, ski-in/ski-out facilities this is not for you - but if you want to experience a place where parts date back 300 years, this is great.
The modern comfort and convenience is all still here - but historical features are in every view - from the cloistered bar and restaurant to the exposed beams in your room - make this a delightful place.
And it is the same with Magnus and his team of very friendly, efficient and accommomdating staff. Welcoming throughout our stay, the team was efficient, friendly and adaptable when it came to things like last-minute menu requests.
We stayed half-board, and with two-hour windows in the morning and evening, meal-times were a relaxing treat. There was a wide range of food available in the morning, to get you ready for the slopes, from porridge to cold cuts and bacon and egg, along with great tea and coffee.
When it came to the three-course evening meals, the attention to detail in what was offered and the way it was presented was fabulous - there wasn't a dish that had not been prepared with care and the waiting staff delivered them all with a friendly relaxed charm.
With only a five-minute walk to the Aravet ski lift, you can quickly get out and onto the great pistes of Serre Chevalier with ease. This is a great place to stay.

Very popular with Swedes as it is run by a Swedish company. New to Crystal this year.

Advantages
Located in a charming part of the village. Only 5 minutes walk from the slopes and Aravet lift, ski shops, nursery slopes. Ski bus stop taking you to the neighbouring villages is only 2 minutes away. 2 easy black runs (Pylones, Casse du Boeuf) for intermediates to progress upwards from reds. Four villages you can ski between: Briancon, Chantemerle, Villeneuve, Monetier-les-Bains.

Stefan, the Danish head chef, made wonderful 3 course meals each day with his special twist to the recipes, making the meals a culinary delight for the palate. One person commented the meals were more for adults than children, and there were hardly any children in the hotel. But Stefan said he could make meals for children, eg home made nuggets, if required.

The dining room was charming and there was a rotisserie room which I didn’t try (had to pay extra) which looked rustic and inviting. The lounge was cosy and had free wifi.

Plenty of very hot water for showers and baths.

The Ski Connection shop right by the Aravet lift (see photo) was very helpful with friendly staff with a great sense of humour and personalized service, and we got our ski hire and lessons from them. Also left my skis there each night for €2/night.

On the skibus you can go to Briancon for a few hours excursion to visit the UNESCO World Heritage site of Cite Vauban, the historic fortified centre designed by Louis 14th’s military engineer genius, Vauban, who revolutionized fortifications and strategies for sieges at a time when mediavel fortifications were no longer fit for purpose due to cannon. Great views from the top. Visit Patisserie Turin on Grand Rue for lovely thick hot chocolate, with spices if you want it, and delicious patisserie.

At the other end of the valley is Monetier-les-Bains - €18.50 for 2 hours in the thermal baths, well worth it or a little more for 3 hours but you can stay all day too. Open air pool to enjoy the mountain scenery, indoor pool at 32 degrees with great views through huge windows, a frigidarium, tepidarium and caldarium, a hamam (Turkish baths), a musical grotto. Take your own towel and make sure gents wear the right kind of swimming trunks – no loose ones (shorts). My partner got caught out but a very kind attendant took pity on him and found a spare one to borrow, otherwise he would have had to buy one in the shop (expensive) which is by the ticket office.

Disadvantages
Located 150 metres up a steep-ish hill which was icy in parts. Although the ski slopes are only 5 minutes walk away, you have to walk down this hill to the main road and then across the road, you have to go 300 metres uphill, also icy in parts, on the other side to arrive at the lifts and nursery slopes. So I was cautious about walking downhill and uphill each morning in my ski boots and carrying my skis. However, I found a ski shop right opposite the Aravet Lift which looks after your skis overnight at a cost of €2/day which I thought was well worth it. It meant that I could easily and comfortably walk to the slopes in my snowboots, and at the end of the day, I could go straight into the village in my snowboots instead of having to first return to the hotel with my ski stuff.

One part of the hotel where a separate shower was located smelt badly of damp but our room and all the main and shared public areas were absolutely dry and smelt fine.

The walls were thin and it was possible to hear people talking in the passageways and neighbouring rooms. It did not bother me because by 11pm, the hotel was quiet. There was only 1 night when a boisterous group of young people kept me awake and I had to make a complaint and this was dealt with satisfactorily.

The free wifi was in the lounge/bar area only and it was often slow.

The ski locker room was not kept locked but I guess it would have been extremely unlikely for thefts to take place.

The bath was so small, you could not relax properly in it if you like that sort of thing.
The ensuite bathroom window was draughty which made the bathroom a bit cold. But at night, the bedroom was so hot because the radiators did not turn off, that the small amounts of cool air coming in from the bathroom were a welcome and helped to keep us from overheating.

The Crystal coach dropped us off at the car park at the bottom of the hill from the hotel so we had to carry all our bags (and I had my own skis and boots) up the hill, and then up flights of stairs to our room as no lifts in the hotel and the rooms are on many floors.
