The Maison de la Foret is a place of discovery. You can learn a lot about the life in the forest, here. From the exhibitions in the place itself, but also from the trail of the senses that starts here. Next to that, there's a nice little playground and a cafe where you can enjoy local food and some drinks. This makes it a good place for longer walks on the mountainside as well. We really loved the planchette Valaisanne. Service could be friendlier, but were nice enough. Please note: you cannot pay with any type of card here. Just cash.

We loved this place. It tells you interactively about nature on the mountain, has a playground, and you can do a quiz while doing a short hike on the mountain. Great for kids, fun for parents. Take a quiz book (three languages available), and a pencil set and learn about the trees and animals in the forest.

Maison de la Foret is situated at the top of La Tzoumaz on the road up to Croix de la Coeur. It has stunning mountain views and is a perfect place for a few hours of family activities such as easy hikes, landscape drawing and mountain biking. The staff (Laura and Aaron) are incredibly friendly, helpful and patient and they offer delicious cakes, wine and local cheese /meat platters.
