The holiday that awaits you
A welcoming and meeting space
It is called "The Small Office", the reception located at ground floor and it’s here that the heart of Le Petit Coeur hospitality beats: we are often present to welcome you, present the house and surroundings, illustrate agreements with territory operators or simply fulfill your requests.Brochures and maps in hand, we give you all the tips for perfect and tailor-made experiences.
Our welcome is safely made by implementing the containment measures for Covid-19 as established by the O.M.S. and the I.S.S. with screened desk, gloves and masks and the maintenance of distances.
Moreover, check-in is done privately, only one family unit at a time by appointment, and to avoid waiting times, by sending in advance by mail or whatsapp the identity documents.
An ancient stone stable dedicated to taste
The old stable, full of objects that recall the ancient customs and traditions of the Aosta Valley, has become a characteristic tea room. Here you have the pleasure of relaxing in a family atmosphere and friendly service while tasting the typical Aosta Valley products.
The Italian espresso, the creamy cappuccinos, the cake of the day and the homemade biscuits, the warm croissants and various local products, will sweeten your awakening ... A good morning starts in the morning and at Le Petit Coeur the "good morning" is always returned with a smile.
The tavern lives to the rhythm of moments dedicated to taste such as breakfast, teatime or aperitif. Whether after an excursion to the mountains or after skiing, the teatime at Le Petit Coeur is, in every season, an eagerly awaited moment of greediness.
"The food you eat can be either the healthiest and most potent form of medicine or the slowest form of poison." - Ann Wigmore
An oasis of relaxation overlooking the giant of Europe
Like a large terrace of well-kept green carpet with a breathtaking view of Mont-Blanc, our garden is ideal for reading a good book in the shade of our pear tree, for tanning in the sun, for being pampered by the hammock or for indulging in couple relaxing moments on the double deckchair.
In winter, under a white mantle, it is the ideal place to have fun with friendly snowball fights or building snowmen.
Every so often this corner of nature comes alive with the conversations and happiness of the guests who consume in company an aperitif or a tasting of typical products we propose.
The intimate and relaxing atmosphere of residence Le Petit Coeur garden awaits you!
An outdoor space designed for the fun
In front of our structure, on a large turf next to the parking lot, there is a playground for children equipped with swings suitable for all ages, a football goal, a slide and a small camping tent to experience a real summer camp.
Le Petit Coeur offers its guests various board games, rackets and balls to play tennis or badminton, soccer balls and rubber swords to challenge each other and interpret the heroes of fairy tales.
All around the play area, armchairs and umbrellas will allow children and parents to rest after an intense moment of play and fun or to read a good book outdoor, observing the little ones in their playful activities.
A functional meadow for your pet
Behind the children's playing area, cultivated with small fruit trees, there is the tripping dog area: It's a rustical and large fenced lawn, to allow owners to let their animals free without leaving in the neighbouring agricultural fields and wooded areas.
Here the pets can run free, make friends with each other, play and make their own needs, respecting the good rules of hygiene and coexistence.
Le Petit Coeur is a Pet friendly aparthotel and have free access to all areas of the residence as long as they are accompanied by their owners.
Seasonal fruit and vegetables: all the best from nature
During your summer stay at Residence Le Petit Coeur, you'll can cook delicious and healthy dishes with seasonal vegetables, flowers and herbs, at km 0, coming from our organic and synergistic mountain garden.
We cultivate without chemicals, adopting integrated pest control and using natural macerates and infusions. Vegetables, aromatic herbs and flowers are with each other synergistically associated.
A little corner with unique gift items
At our mini boutique, you'll can buy for yourself or offer unique souvenirs.
These are small creative objects, expressions of friends, artists and artisans of our valley: you will find gift boxes of the natural mountain cosmetics line present in every accommodation and much appreciated for its freshness and naturalness ; the typical handcrafted wood carved pendants ; the naive pendants of felt and handmade fabric, or even decoration items and home fabrics and local products.
Small objects for great memories of the Aosta Valley typicality.
The quietness a stone's throw from the famous Courmayeur
On the orographic right of the Dora Baltea stream, immersed in calm, Derby is a pretty village that is part of the municipality of La Salle and part of the Balteo Walk route.
Nestled between immense meadows and close to wonderful woods, it is a tailor-made village for those looking for tranquillity and nature, but still close to primary services such as pharmacies, shops, supermarkets, bars, restaurants.
Starting on foot from the residence, the path of the Derby plain, 3 km long between the Equilivaz bridge and the bridge of the impetuous Lenteney waterfall, is fantastic for easy walks to discover its rich natural and historical heritage.
From the church, the village winds its way which contains important historical testimonies dating back to the Middle Ages: the parish church of Sant'Orso, the judicial castle that belonged to the canons of the Cathedral and those of Sant'Orso, the notary castle of the Lachenal nobles, the village oven, the old prisons and the monumental secular chestnut.
Typical mountain rural architecture is still present in the Chez les Gontier neighborhoods, where Le Petit Coeur is located, Epinel and Sant’Orso.
Finally, its strategic position allows you to quickly reach the ski slopes of La Thuile or Courmayeur, the departure of mountain walks in a few minutes by car or the legendary Pré-Saint-Didier thermal baths nearby.
