The luxury of living in a little paradise
Far from the hustle and bustle of the world, we find ourselves in a pleasant village, where calm reigns supreme surrounded by the panorama of the mountains.
The quality of life here is unmatched, based on tranquility and comfort but we don’t live in isolation. Everything you need is just a few kilometers away: supermarkets, pharmacies, shops and markets in the main centers such as Morgex, Courmayeur and Aosta without giving up the best of life in the mountains.
A few steps away, there is the possibility to regenerate and enjoy a great psychophysical well-being thanks to the numerous practicables mountain activities in every season. From walks and hikes from spring to late autumn, to skiing and snowshoeing in winter, you have the opportunity to do what you like and try new outdoor experiences.
The strong alpine identity is expressed in a life upbeat by seasons. The cultivation of mountain kitchen gardens with vegetables, medicinal plants and fruit is a practice that has ancient roots in family subsistence agriculture and which today is rediscovered as a privilege to be able to consume one's quality products at home.
We want to share this healthy lifestyle that we love so much, recommending walks and unmissable attractions, experiences and visits, secret routes, organic natural and km 0 products, fresh vegetables and seasonal fruit from our garden or typical products from small local producers.
Here another primordial good is taken for granted, of which many of our city guests are now deprived: at Le Petit Coeur, you can drink tap water. Very pure and with an excellent taste, it comes from the sources of the Lenteney stream, located a short distance away.
The naturalness is the red thread and the real luxury of life at Le Petit Coeur, where the person immediately feels in tune, in a relaxing environment on a human and family scale. To savor the regenerating inner calm and a sweet feeling of happiness, well represented in the common idioms: "my heart opens up" or "being in heaven".
"Goodby said the Fox. And now here is my secret. A very simple secret. It is only with heart that one can see rightly. What is essential is invisible to the eye".

The ancient farming dwelling
The truest stories are made up of people, passion, love and tradition ...
Our story begins in the early 1700s with an agricultural residence that over the centuries has been transformed, always remaining, hearth, nest, home. Today it is a small mountain accommodation open to everyone, while retaining that home atmosphere.
In 2010, with great fore-sightedness, the owners Olga and Franco, passionately and skilfully converted this old farm building into a charming 3-star residence with 7 self-catered charming apartments with kitchen and furnished in pure alpine style.
Today, residence Le Petit Coeur has been entrusted to Valérie and Mauro who welcome you with enthusiasm and kindness as you're appreciated guests of this magical estate.

What do others think ?
Here some guest reviews that really stayed at Le Petit Coeur. We never paid or favored fake reviews as in total contrast to our ethic and welcome philosophy.
"A small mountain village expertly restored in the hamlet of Derby, quiet and away from traffic and worldliness, an intact corner of history and traditions that gives back the true pleasure of the mountains. Nice and comfortable rooms with kitchen. Total silence. Ideal for visiting the Vallee. You can ski in Coumayeur, La Thuile, and in the beautiful and hidden Val di Rhemes. A pearl, a small heart of warmth and mountains. The real one ..."- Andrea - December 2015
