We stayed at Hotel Faucigny for a 4-day ski vacation, and we loved it! Monsieur and Madame Ecochard were so friendly and helpful. Our luggage was lost the day we arrived at the Geneva Airport, forcing us to wait 5 hours for its arrival on the next flight. As a result, we ended up arriving quite late in Chamonix. Monsieur Ecochard was so kind when I called him to alert him of this - he placed a key for us in the mailbox and left a note with all the instructions we would need.
Breakfast was typical French - lots of wonderful baguettes, cheese, and jams. If you're looking for heartier foods, you'll have to try one of the local cafes. The Faucigny has a ski room and a locked boot room, which made the end of the ski day much easier.
The location is fantastic for touring Chamonix. It's right in the center of town within walking distance of some of the best restaurants and bars. The location isn't quite as convenient for picking up the bus to take you to the ski resorts. We had about a 10 minute walk in ski boots to get to the nearest bus stop. That being said, it was a great workout!
Next time I'm in Chamonix, I will definitely stay at the Faucigny. We found it to be incredibly charming and definitely worth the price!
