Featured in 'Mountain Chalets', Food and Travel magazine and The Guardian, 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, only minutes walk to the Bellevue ski lift and local skiing, amenities, shops and several delightful restaurants and just a short drive from Chamonix town itself. The extensive ski area's of the valley are between 5 and 25 minutes drive thus all the excitement of the Chamonix valley is right on your door step and easily accessible! The chalet is offered self catering but we can include airport transfers and resort minibus trips on request during the winter (not summer) If you would like the chalet catered we can offer a list of local chefs. As experienced professionals with more than 30 yrs experience in the Chamonix valley (each!!!) your holiday will be expertly delivered, all concierge arranged smoothly and our friendly service offered with a smile to ensure you have a great stay, whatever formula you choose!

About the neighborhood
Home to the sports of skiing and mountaineering, Chamonix is simply addictive. The dramatic mountains of the Chamonix valley incorporating the Mont Blanc Massif offers breathtaking scenery and make it a stunning setting for any skiing, snowboarding or summer activity holiday. With five separate ski areas scattered along the Chamonix valley, each with its own unique character and the famous off piste Valley Blanche run , every level of skier and snowboarder is amply catered for! Les Houches is a pretty and unspoilt ski village which nestles just 5km from Chamonix town. Les Houches is the largest single, pisted area in the Chamonix valley and has the added bonus of 86 snow canons covering 23 hectares of piste, this ski domain has wonderful skiing for beginners, intermediates and especially ...
How to get there
Geneva Airport is just over an hour away by car. We can offer airport transfers as a supplement to any accommodation booking. Lyon airport is just over 2 hrs drive. Milan airport is 2.5 hrs drive away (via Mont Blanc tunnel from Aosta valley) We recommend Easy Jet, Swiss or BA for flights from most UK regional and main airports. Driving from Calais is an easy drive taking 8 or 9 hours.
