La Ferme du Chozal was a delightful discovery. We found it on the internet a week in advance of our break and couldn't have been happier. We stayed in a 'tradition/mountain' room which was the cheaper of the two options. Despite what other reviews have said, we found the room to be very spacious and well appointed. We stayed in room 11 and the sloping roof was not a problem at all. It was beautiful to be able to lay down on the very comfortable bed and see the sky through the velux window. (There were also french doors leading from the room to the outside).
The setting of the hotel is perfect. Hauteluce is a small sleepy traditional village half way up the side of a valley with Mont Blanc sitting at the end. La Ferme du Chozal is situated in the top part of the village right next to the Chozal chair lift which in the winter links it to the Espace Diamant ski area boasting 185km of ski runs.
We decided to stay on a half-board basis and didn't regret it for one minute. The evening meals were spectacular! Their website calls it the 'discovery' menu because you don't get to chose from a menu - they just bring you course after course of delicious and unusual specialities that left us staggering back to our room with happily swollen stomachs. I don't think we could have done it for more than two nights in a row though - you can have too much of a good thing!
We found the owners to be very friendly and happy to speak English! They've just had an outside hot tub fitted and turned it on especially for us. The swimming pool will also be a great addition once it is finished. Perhaps next time we will stay for longer and take advantage of the other facilities such as sauna, steam room and massages.
All in all we had a wonderful stay and will definitely return in the future, perhaps even for a skiing holiday!
