Children 5-12

Babies, tots and teens are welcome. We provide cots, high chairs, stair gates etc for free. More info for families, and equipment list here.

La Petite Foret is not suited to children aged 5-12. The garden is not enclosed, so children need to be supervised at all times. Nearby there is a fast flowing glacial river, and we are very close to a small cog railway with a live rail, which is on a high embankment but not fenced.  

Our copper seats have proved impossible for children to resist swinging on with exuberance, which is very dangerous as they are extremely heavy, and additionally they are easily damaged.

There are open railings on the balcony stairs. The interior is small, with custom made furniture and textiles, and is not suited to the play of excited children.

We want people to enjoy their time here, and constantly needing to supervise children is not relaxing! You may well feel that somewhere with a fully enclosed garden and more robust decor leads to a more relaxing holiday 🙂 

Thank you for understanding.
If you have children of this age and would like to discuss staying here, please contact us.
