A stunning and recently restored Farmhouse in in Les Houches, Chamonix.
A rare find in the Alps, this superbly restored property dating from 1781 offers the discerning skier a wonderful mountain lodge whilst also offering an impressive array of eco credentials to satisfy even the most environmentally conscious amongst us. Finished to a very high standard, Chalet Eco Farm can be counted as one of only a handful of authentic farmhouses in the Chamonix valley available for rental. Located in the charming village of Les Houches, just a couples of minutes walk to the Bellevue ski lifts, with several delightful restaurants, local Boulangerie and shops nearby and only a short drive from Chamonix town and the other ski areas of the Chamonix valley.
This chalet has not just been re-built but hand-crafted. The owners have used reclaimed wood and the original panels throughout and have used grey Italian slate and granite in the kitchen. Some of the furniture is hand built or sourced from local Antique shops! For comfort they have installed under-floor geothermic heating throughout, overlaid with solid oak flooring.
The main living area is open plan and double aspect, with the roof structure exposed. Enormous Velux windows let the daylight flood in.
The luxurious Italian leather sofa’s offer comfy seating around the fireplace and the dining area with an impressive hand-made dining table and oak chairs, perfect for 10 guests.
The bedrooms have been equipped with supremely comfortable hotel standard Superking and Kingsize zip lock divan beds (which make excellent twins) supplied with crisp white Organic Egyptian bed linen and goose feather duvets making the bedrooms warm and cosy.
Eco lodge apartments are next door offering flexible accommodation formula’s especially for groups seeking single rooms.
