La Petite Foret in Summer

Magical mountain summertime at the chalet…enjoying the day in the garden ringed with woods and mountains, or out adventuring in the Alps, returning to an evening hot tub and barbecue.

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.
