This enchanting hamlet is one of the "Hameaux des Travers". The villages located at an altitude of between 860m and 970m on the North side of Saint-Bon Valley are so-called because they have been built across (travers in French) the northern slopes and were the first of the municipality's hamlets to be populated. Le Fay is the nearest hamlet to Bozel and set amidst woodland. It harbours a 17th century chapel dedicated to St Isidore, the patron saint of farmers, and to Our Lady of the Presentation. The hamlet's name perhaps refers to a place planted with fayards, a Savoyard term for beech trees.
