La Ferme de la Foret is a characterful property that has been tastefully renovated to a very high standard. Set down a quiet track and surrounded by forest it is the perfect, private hideaway for nature lovers.A short 5-10 minute drive up hill would bring you to Bettex, the cable car mid-station of St Gervais. Alternatively, going down the hill for the same amount of time, brings you to the centre of the village and all its amenities.

Large entrance hallway with fireplace and storage cupboards.Spacious dining room with door to the garden for easy access to outside dining.
