“A magical alpine escape”
Reviewed 17 February 2012 for a stay in January 2012

EcoFarm is a beautiful chalet. From the moment we walked through the door we were blown away by how magical it was. Gaby and Tim have gone to a lot of effort to make the chalet feel luxurious yet like home. The space worked perfectly for our group of 11. The large dining table and open plan (very modern and well equipped kitchen) provided a great communal area. The chalet has everything you would expect - from fur throws all over to a hot tub and jazzy flat screen TV that can be hidden. We really enjoyed the log fire - logs were kept stocked by the chalet staff. The chalet is a 2 minute walk from the Bellevue lift and local amenities. Although the ski bus was good, a car is advisable. Gaby and Tim (and the chalet staff) are super and very helpful - both in advance of the holiday (giving advice on ski hire and where to go out), during (making sure we were comfortable) and afterwards (returning lost property!). Les Houches is great for people learning to skiers, or people who ski at an intermediate level, but some members of our group preferred to go to Chamonix - this can end up being expensive without a car and so it is advisable to think about what kind of resort you want before you book.

I have also stayed in the EcoJardin apartment with my parents and also loved it. I would certainly go back here - and if you are considering it, book! You will not be disappointed.

“Lovely hot-tub”
Reviewed 3 February 2012 for a stay in January 2012

I stayed as part of a group, there were thirteen 25 - 30 year olds which filled the Eco Farm nicely. We decided to do a short trip (four days) without catering as this worked out cheaper. There was plenty of space and seating all round, except the main table which can only really sit twelve as advertised. It is located 150 metres from one of the main Les Houches ski lifts - Bellevue, and easy walking distance from a few local restaurants, bars and shops. The main supermarket is about 1.5 km away though. Taxis/minibuses into Chamonix can be arranged directly with the owner (Gabi) which cost about 40 - 70 euros depending on time of day (late nights being expensive obviously).

The whole feel of the chalet is luxurious without a doubt, every room had warm rugs, en-suite bathrooms with either a double bath, or a large walk-in shower and windows that open fully. The master bedroom is large, and a little step up from the rest, but it's nothing major. It was clean throughout, especially the kitchen which was a pleasant surprise. There were a few highlights for us as a group of people… the lovely fireplace which everyone could sit round after skiing and till late at night drinking, the incredibly warm hot tub that was almost too hot - lovely to be in when snowing. They advertise the tub as only being able to fit four… we had 13 people squashed in, so it fits 8 comfortably. The proximity to the lift is also lovely if you want to simply get up and ski. There is free wi-fi and free-view throughout the chalet.

If I was returning to Les Houches I would definitely stay in one of the Eco Chalets (they have smaller ones too), however the skiing is a little limited, so if that's the only reason why you go then I would look to book in Chamonix if you can afford to. We had our full deposit returned within a few days of departure which was nice.

Chère Aurélie et ta famille, tu es trop gentille! Et nous sommes ravis que vos vacances en famille vous avez donné beaucoup de beaux souvenirs de Noël. Nous avons essayé de garder le chalet et les decorations dans le style du passé avec beaucoup de bois. Bon voyage et nous espérons vous accueillir une autre fois au chalet Eco Farm!
