La Ferme
Ranked #7 of 20 Hotels in La Clusaz
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 January 2017

La Ferme is a great restaurant and hotel - combining the benefit of ski in and ski out (about 400 metres above village on main piste) whilst only being 10 mins walk from the bars and shops in town.

I must start with the staff- nothing was too much trouble, from Anouck and Stefan (owners) to all the restaurant staff, they were constantly offering to help with our various queries. This was a massive help in particular as the snow was, as like the rest of the alps, limited during our stay. They were all great and really made our holiday.

The rooms are fine with modern bathrooms. We had two on the lower floor with direct access outside. As others have said there is some noise from the restaurant about but ask for lower floor as much quieter. Beds were big and comfortable.

The restaurant was great- given it was the "quiet" first week in January the fact it was packed lunch and dinner each day says a lot. A good mix of nationalities as well to add to the atmosphere. The food is the traditional mix of cheese and meat dishes so plenty of Tartiflete was consumed! They also offered salads and pizzas etc. Reasonable selection for the children and a comprehensive wine list.

Check out the hotel website as good and accurate reflection of the hotel.

So great place to say and yes we intend to go back!

Room Tip: Lower floors a bit quieter

This is a very well run hotel and, for us, was a perfect overnight stop. Friendly staff and good food, with a great range of choices and prices. Local wine is available, for once, at a reasonable cost. Impressive service for a busy restaurant. Rooms are simple but clean and comfortable. Our only complaint was that only one bath towel was provided for a double room and a smallish towel at that. Otherwise excellent.

Room Tip: The upper rooms have great views and are a little quieter

Just back from a mid-March long weekend ski break and we are already talking about placing another booking at La Ferme for next year.

La Ferme is, at its heart, a fantastic slope-side restaurant with some B&B rooms downstairs.

That said - where better to get a room than 30 seconds walk upstairs to the best restaurant in town?!! (I will review the restaurant separately)

La Ferme is located 10 mins walk up the road from town (or 3 minutes up the green piste for those with stamina). It is slope-side and you can ski from the door to the Cret du Merle chair, the Patimoire bubble and the Beauregard bubble.

At the hotel's suggestion, we hired skis from Skiset (the Point Service shop is just along from the Cret du Merle lift) and they were happy to pick the skis up from the hotel on our last day when we finished skiing saving us having to walk back up the hill after dropping the kit off.

As the hotel is obviously built in to a slope, it is a bit hard to work out which floor is ground floor but the restaurant is at the top (at road level) and the 2 floors below contain 6 bedooms each.

The rooms are comfortable and functional. Not overly large but not tiny either. All 3 of our rooms had views over the slopes. Nice (shower only) ensuite bathrooms (wetrooms) with Molton Brown toiletries. Small flat screen TV with mainly french channels (but fine for watching the rugby!).

There is a ski store and boot room on the middle floor. There are boot warmers to warm and dry the boots overnight that worked well.

Breakfast (8am to 11am) was plentiful with lovely fresh bread, croissants, fruit, freshly boiled eggs, ham, cheeses, smoked salmon, cereals, yoghurts and really good freshly made coffee. The staff were all unfailingly friendly and helpful.

Any downsides? Not really. Some have commented on noise in the rooms which we noticed but it didn't bother us. Being on the middle floor we were directly below the restaurant so there was some noise from above both late at night and early morning (mainly tables moving and footsteps). If you are a light sleeper you might prefer a room on the lowest floor (but then your views won't be as good - take your pick!)

We thought being up the hill from town might be inconvenient but the walk down (via the road just above the village) is easy and pleasant.

The slope-side bar got a bit noisy between 4-6pm with a DJ playing but it quietened down by 6 and was not so noticeable from the rooms. We took the approach that it was better to join in than be bothered by it!

So all in all - everything worked about this hotel for us. Sensibly priced comfortable slope-side rooms, friendly staff, simple ski hire arrangements, good breakfasts and a fantastic restaurant upstairs.

We will be back!

Spent one week in this hotel with the family during mid winter break.
It is a gemm!
The team is amazing, friendly and always doing there best to help and accommodate.
Food is superb and prices are very reasonable.
In summary, a great 2 stars hidden hotel (only 12 rooms), on the ski slope (ski in and out) with a great atmosphere.
Restaurant is always very busy, but due to the quality of the food!

Lovely food and service. Fast, efficient and tasty. Try the Cafe Gourmand if you want a coffee and desert - you'll get several deserts with your coffee. I return to this place again and again and I am yet to be anything but delighted with it. Nice touches such as cutting cured meats at the bar, sweets at the end etc. The only negative is that occasionally it can be smoky due to coal fires on tables for cooking a local specialty - not that big a deal. Book ahead during season, it will be busy.
