Step away from bland purpose built chalets and into our charming ski lodge with bags of character that is the perfect retreat of La Vieille Forge. Once the village smithy, this excellent chalet is just 250m from the Les Houches pistes (Chamonix's World Cup venue) and offers the best combination of attentive service, top facilities and wonderfully retro furnishings that embody the Alpine style.

This boutique chalet, ideal for large groups up to 15 people, has bags of character and French country style with wooden floors, cow hide rugs and retro furnishing enhanced by our collection of lovingly collected ski memorabilia; books, vintage ski's and original posters. We've also included every home comfort to make your stay a real pleasure; from spa facilites to comfy hotel standard beds and those little luxuries and smaller touches honed from our many years experience.

You can walk to the piste in 6 mins and ski down the blue run to the bubble lift (closest lift is Prarion/Les Houches). There is a resort minibus service each day 8-10hr and 15.30 till 18.30 plus alternate evenings till 23hrs.
