Petit Couer House Information


This is our recent addition - we had the opportunity to convert a "remise" which had belonged to our neighbour, Nils.  A remise is a workshop/store/shed and Nils had used it as a carpentry workshop before his retirement. We have refurbished it to the highest possible standard and it was used for a few weeks in the Summer of 2019.  It is fully operational for Winter 2019/2020.  We want everyone who uses it in the future to make themselves at home, and enjoy it as much as we expect to.

Petit Coeur can be rented as a standalone property for 4-6 people or together with Deux Coeurs to give a total combined occupancy of 14-18.

We work in partnership with Alps Accommodation and our in-resort support is provided by Kukipegs Property Services, both of whom provide a very professional service.

Information for guests staying with us

Welcome to Chalet Petit Coeur. We hope you have an enjoyable stay with us.  We want you to relax and enjoy Petit Coeur and treat it like a “home from home”.  Please note that the chalet next door is owned by the same families and we are fairly relaxed about guests moving between the two.  If you are part of a larger party which has booked both chalets, (or you just happen to meet and get along), can we please ask that all crockery etc is left in the correct property at the end.  There will be more detail in the guest folder when you arrive at Petit Coeur.
