This little chapel is located in Les Tines right before the main road turns upwards towards Argentiere. The chapel has a rich history and has an association called "Les Amis de la Chapelle Saint Théodule" or "The Friends of the Chapel of Saint Theodule". You can visit the website link for more information.
In short: the chapel was rebuilt in 1777 and has been renovated multiple times since then. Its origin dates back much later with the location originally being a small oratory for Saint Roch, the protector against the plague. The Chamonix valley was then hit by the plague and the legend tells us that the plague stopped at Les Tines and did not travel further down the valley. The oratory was then replaced by a Chapel for Saint Theodule in celebration of this miracle. At that time, the chapel was part of a village called Chastelard which was later destroyed by a glacier.
The Chapelle Saint Théodule is located at the very end of the Les Tines village. The train station cuts the hamlets in two with the chapel being located on the north eastern side of the hamlet at the end of the road that runs on the eastern side of the railway line. It can be visited as part of trails in Les Bois or as part of the Petite Balcon Nord or Petite Balcon Sud.
