THE STORY: Converted into a family-run mountain hotel by Anne-Christine and Frédéric, this former Beaufortin valley farm is tuned line a Swiss watch, and is the perfect ski-in, ski-out vacation spot: the Chozal ski lift, located right in front of the chalet, provides you with access to 192 km of slopes at the Espace Diamant ski resort! There’s no superfluous luxuries here, but it’s still plenty cozy: paneled walls, Aprin Bonneval linen curtains, plush blankets, working fireplaces and Californian massages (50 minutes in the spa, €65). Double rooms starting at €130 a night. Half-board €55. New: the outdoor heated pool!
TOILETRIES: Shampoo, shower gel, soap and a plant-based skin peel.

BREAKFAST: Buffet for €19, with tea and coffee, bread, organic jams, homemade cakes and gâteau de Savoie, charcuterie, cheeses, cherry tomatoes, homemade yogurts, cereals, soft-boiled eggs, fruit juice, fruit salad, homemade compote… and pancakes during school vacation weeks. A few gluten free options are also available. MINI-BAR: No, but there is a lounge with a bar and a fireplace on the ground floor.
LITTLE LUXURY: The view of Mont Blanc, if you reserve the suite located in the former farmhouse.
