Beautiful chalet, hot tub & sauna, log fire, near lift & village, lovely views



Updated: 04-Dec-2016
Close to village & ski lift , with WiFi, balcony and huge garden.

This gorgeous, spacious chalet with its spectacular setting and views will make your holiday truly special! You'll feel like you're in your own mountain hideaway, yet it's only a few minutes walk to the lift, whisking you up to the sunniest slopes in Chamonix for skiing in winter or stunning hikes in summer - there's something for all abilities.

At the end of a day of walking, skiing or simply enjoying the local restaurants in the village, come back to the warm, welcoming chalet, soothe your tired muscles in the hot tub or sauna, and enjoy a relaxing dinner, listening to the crackle of the log fire.

The huge garden is perfect for lazy summer days and long relaxed evenings with a barbecue.

Inside the Chalet: The double height, open beamed living room has big squashy sofas, a wide screen TV with DVD and Nintendo Wii, WiFi, stereo with iPod dock, and a bar.

Generously sized beds, with quality linen and towels. Luxurious walk-in wet room with underfloor heating downstairs, bath, shower & double basins upstairs, and one en suite bedroom in the cosy mazot (an utterly charming, fully en-suite mini-chalet).

Wood and stone details throughout for a really wonderful traditional chalet experience.

The second time we have stayed at Chalet la Foret. It has a wonderful homely feel, cozy and warm - whilst spacious, the bedrooms are very comfortable and the kitchen's superbly equipped. There's a big bath in the bathroom and a superb wetroom.

Situated in a wooded area of Les Praz village - the view across the garden and over the woods to the mountains is spectacular [especially from the hot tub].

It's a 5 minute stroll to the Flegere cable car and because Lez Praz is -geographically- halfway between Brevent and Grand Montet, they are a short car or bus ride away... The skiing in Chamonix is truely amazing.

A dream place in a dream location

  • 5 of 5

We have found our perfect alpine chalet, with all the home comforts and necessities a family could need. Chalet la Foret is both incredibly spacious & yet very cosy. The views from the house & garden, both day & night are without a doubt the most spectacular we've seen. We will definitely be returning here with & without the kids again & again!

A magical place

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at at Chalet la foret was magical. We were greeted by the first fall of the season and made the most of it by having a nightime hot tub, marveling at the pine forest and the silence as the snow fell. The Chalet was comfy and cosi and had everything we needed.

We woke up to sparkling veiws of snow topped mountains and laden pine trees. The kids had a great time playing in the extensive and enclosed garden. Nightimes were spent eating local food - the raclets were amazing - and reading by the fire. The scenery is breathtaking, loads of activitys for kids, the town is lovely - we especially enjoyed the saturday morning market.

Cant wait to come back !

From the Owner

After our first visit in 2002, we both fell in love with the Chamonix valley and it's endless variety, dynamism and beauty. We felt at home the minute we walked into the chalet and it's worth is ready to welcome you too!

A five to ten minute walk takes you to the ski lift, accessing the huge, varied ski area of Flegere and Brevent - Chamonix's sunniest slopes, linked directly to the town.

There are plenty of restaurants, some shops and several bars (including a great apres bar with relaxed live music) within about five minutes walk in the village, ranging from cheerful Italian pizzeria to superb French haute cuisine.

It's just 2km from the cosmopolitan centre of Chamonix by car, free ski bus, regular train or a pleasant level stroll along the woodland paths or a quiet road


In summer, some of the most spectacular mountain hikes in Europe can be started at the door, along with cycle trails for all abilities. The Chamonix golf course is just a short walk away.

South facing and sunny, the chalet itself is in a tranquil spot, set back from a small private road. From chalet, garden, balcony or hot tub, the views of the peaks - including Mont Blanc - are stunning in every direction

Golf: Chamonix Golf course, an eighteen hole course with stunning views, is just a short walk from the chalet.

Ski: No need to get the bus - it's just a short walk to the lift accessing Flegere and Brevent, the sunniest areas of Chamonix. You can also ride down to Chamonix town centre from here. The free ski bus accessing the other ski areas stops at the end of the drive. There's a fantastic Apres bar on the way back from the lift station.

From the Owner

Tucked away in its own little wood, but just a short walk from the lift and village, Chalet la Foret offers a wonderfully authentic Alpine experience, with all the comforts you'd expect. Few places in Chamonix have both seclusion and convenience!
