Left on 01/19/2012 for a stay in December 2011 | The Jones Family
Our family of six (children ages 13, 11, 8 & 4) just returned from a truly wonderful stay at this charming, lovingly restored farmhouse. We all loved the character of the place with its exposed stone, wooden beams, quirky staircases and loft space. The food was another highlight--Carole is a talented cook who makes everything from scratch, from smoking her own salmon to slaving over the labour intensive duck confit served with champagne and homemade fruit sorbets on New Year's Eve. Carole visited with us as she served each course, sharing french family traditions and stories with us that made the whole experience very warm and personal--not to mention delicious! The kids were made to feel right at home: welcomed to join in the daily trip to the neighbouring farm to get fresh milk and cheese, given free rein to run around outdoors and play, and invited to watch movies, colour and play games in their own living room. Perhaps what helped us enjoy our holiday most of all was their flexibility: they watched our four year old on days we wanted to ski harder with the older kids, they provided ski tuition for our older ones on an ad-hoc basis, they delivered a continental breakfast at any time you liked each morning, they served dinner earlier for whichever children wanted it on a daily basis and drove us to and from the slopes whenever we asked (within traffic and the other group's constraints of course). They were relaxed hosts and nothing was ever too much trouble. Not only did they welcome some friends of ours to dinner several nights, they kindly drove them back to La Clusaz afterwards! The beds were comfy, the towels thick, the rooms spacious, and the views stunning. Just be aware that the journey is slightly longer to the slopes (you have the benefit of two resorts to choose from) than we expected--more like 15 minutes than 5 as the website says--not a problem, but just take that into account if you have ski school schedules to keep.
