Concierge.com's insider take:
This "ancient" hotel looks like it has been in place for 100 years, but it was almost entirely formed in the 1990s from the reclaimed timber of local barns. The only authentic part is the 17th-century cowshed, with a magnificent vaulted ceiling and flagstone floor in the main restaurant. The hotel has four eating options in all, including a grill room, an eatery entirely devoted to cheese dishes, and a mountain hut that is open two days a week. Most of the 71 guest rooms and suites have balconies, and some have fireplaces. All have wood-paneled walls, hand-carved furniture, and alpine accessories, such as old wooden chests. A pleasant swimming pool is tucked away in one of the barns. Be aware that Les Fermes is inconveniently situated on the outskirts of town, well away from lifts and shops, but the hotel runs a courtesy car service for its guests and diners.
