“Absolutely fantastic bed and breakfast !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2011

The owners were very friendly and had a multiple suggestions about what to do in the region. Our room was very spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was served with the owners home made jams and honey. Everything was organic and delicious.
The green valley area was a beautiful place to visit and the local restaurant in Habere-Poche was outstanding! The entire bed and breakfast was completely redone like new with flowers everywhere. The price is very reasonable. I would most definitely stay in this B & B again, hopefully very soon!

My family and I (5adults and 1 2year old) stayed for 4 nights and everything was peaceful, relaxing and comfortable.There were excellent baby facilities-bed, changing table, play room... We had "table d'hote" twice and the food was great, the company friendly. Breakfasts in the morning were varied and delicous plus being either organic or home made. We'd definitely recommend this place as a short getaway. Views from the balconies were stunning.

A friendly welcome in a high quality but tastefully renovated farmhouse. We felt very well received by the owners who gave us valuable tips for activities and good restaurants.
We highly recommend this place near the Mont Blanc may it be for skiing, cross country skiing, snowshoeing or just to relax away from the big centers.
A real discovery.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2011

We just spent a week at La Fontaine d'Argence which is run by Françoise and her family. We had a lovely time. Fontaine d'Argence has a comfortable feel to it: it is warm, spacious and cozy at the same time. It is located in Habère Poche, a tiny village and ski station in the Green Valley.

Even though we are a family of 3, our bedroom was a duplex big enough for a family with five children. Our room had 4 windows which afforded us a nice view to the valley and lots of light. Our bed was comfortable. The bathroom was equiped with a modern shower which always had good water pressure and hot water. We also appreciated the electric radiator to warm up our towels.

Breakfast was one of the highlights of our stay: besides the homemade jellies made by Françoise, she had something baked for us everyday, including a pound cake, red fruit crumble, pain d'épice. She even shared with us a birthday cake she had baked for one of the guests.

We had a chance to have dinner twice there: the food was always excellent , made with organic local produce. Dinner was light and healthy. On our first meal we had a pumpkin soup made from pumpkins grown from the garden, an omelette with mushrooms and cooked pears in syrup. Everything was fresh, homemade and delicious.

Discussions with Françoise and her husband were always interesting. They both made us feel at home and they were nice enough to give us great tips on where to eat (even for New year's eve!), what to visit (the fromagerie (cheese factory) in the area is not to be missed--go and visit the goats!

The only small criticism is that our room was not cleaned during our stay but we knew it ahead of time and it was ok.

We highly recommend this lovely place which is far from pretentious, crowded ski stations.
