Arriving by Road
Google Earth hasn’t yet driven through our forest so to the left is an additional map for your convenience. Match the magenta road shape on the aerial view to the left with the white road on the Google map to the right.
GPS co-ordinates for the chalet are to the left and a larger map is below.
If your GPS doesn’t want to take you into the forest, the second co-ordinates are for the hamlet of La Valette.
