“Lovely spot, highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

We came upon this little oasis whilst cycling the area one day on holiday. Lots of picnic tables & benches although couldn't find a loo. Very pleasant, calming area, seemed lots for kids to do although most seemed content to play in the water. Had drinks from the cafe, lovely place. Didn't eat as we had brought a picnic but nice choice of lunch-time snacks available. Approx 15-20 mins away by bike and maybe an hour or less if walking from Chamonix.This was a good find.

“Cool oasis for families with children”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

Passed through this a few times while running and it looks like a cool little oasis for families with children. There's a lovely clean little stream with paddle boat, ponies to ride on short little trips though the forest and a small cafe. The facilities are quite basic but perfectly adequate and the share of the trees are a welcome relief on warm days. It's a wonderland for children and a nice relaxing space for Mums and Dads.

“A gem in the forest like a paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2011

Paradis des Praz is an idyllic spot along a stream with an outdoor play area for kids both in summer and winter. In summer there are ponies, a sledge run, an aerial runway, a small lake for swimming etc. In winter Paradis des Praz offers snow rafting for the kids. There is a small restaurant that serves drinks and snacks. The area is behind the golf course in Les Praz,/ Les Bois
