Photos and details of winter at La Petite Foret – cosy and welcoming chalet with private hot tub and sauna set in a magical wooded garden
We live in the big chalet “Chalet la Forêt” which faces away from “La Petite Forêt”. The two chalets are quite close together but due to their differing orientations privacy is not an issue. Please do note that the garden is bordered by private woods and planted banks but is not securely enclosed. Children and dogs need supervision.

Other things to note
The chalet is the second of only two houses on a very quiet, unpaved, no-through road.
On the other side of the lane is a single line narrow-gauge railway which is used only by the small local valley train which runs from 7am until 8 pm. This little red tourist train, normally two or three carriages, runs slowly and is not frequent or excessively noisy, but can be heard in the chalet. It is not a big disturbance but just needs to be mentioned.
Although there is essentially zero traffic on the road the chalet is on, as with many chalets in Chamonix, it is possible to hear the cars on a nearby road.
