view web site ›'s insider take:

This collection of exquisite wood-and-stone mazots (ancient barns) has been converted into 10 chalets—the smallest can accommodate one person, the largest sleeps 20 adults and six kids. The hamlet is the life's work of a retired French film producer and is located in the tiny enclave of Le Lavancher between Chamonix and Argentière. You can ski back here off-piste down La Pendant from Les Grands Montets. The old buildings have been beautifully restored and are furnished with eclectic alpine antiques and local paintings. Flannel bed sheets add to the rural atmosphere, although Hermès toiletries in the bathrooms, a steam room, two outside hot tubs, and a home cinema soften the initial impression that you have inadvertently stumbled across the alpine hut of Heidi's grandfather. You can have meals delivered to your chalet or the resident chef will cook for parties of up to 12 in the 17th-century dining chalet.
