Chatel, Alps


Chatel is a lovely resort-village located in the Chablais, on the French-Swiss border. The style of its chalets is inspired by that of the old farmhouses in the Vallée d’Abondance, listed as a "Land of Art and History". You can get to the heart of town and the gondolas that take you up to the slopes of Domaine des Portes du Soleil in no time at all by hopping on one the shuttle buses that pass right near the chalet.

Built just recently, this handsome new chalet has a lot going for it, notably its traditional architecture and modern design, featuring large volumes and an abundance of light.

You reach the house by taking a beautiful stone stairway (heated). The spacious 65 sq.m. living area is warm and welcoming with a bright, colorful decor perfectly adapted to large families and groups of friends. The children will love the dorm room perched on the mezzanine and the grown-ups will appreciate the top quality amenities (very comfortable beds), the Jacuzzi (with room for 6) on the edge of the forest, and the pool table. Enjoy the peace and quiet, the sun and nature on the chalet’s terrace or its large balcony. The little stream that runs along the rim of the property adds even more appeal to an already charming place.

There’s an outdoor ski storage area with equipment to dry your ski boots. There’s room for one car in the garage and a parking area for two cars outside.

You can try your hand at snowshoeing, ice fishing, paragliding, cheese making or visit the old customs house.
