The Rhone/French Alps region

Châtel is positioned on the border of France and Switzerland and is in the heart of the Portes du Soleil ski area. Comprising 12 linked resorts on either side of the border and 650km of pisted runs and snowparks the Portes du Soleil is the largest linked ski domain in Europe. From Châtel you can directly access and ski between the resorts of Avoriaz, Morzine, Les Gets, Morgins, Champéry and more. If you're someone who enjoys a full day of skiing it is possible to start your day in Chatel and do a full circle of the area without doing the same run twice.

The ski area enjoys exceptionally good snowfall from mid-November to the end of April, with an average of 7m83 of powder every year.

The Portes du Soleil ski area is open from 21st December 2013 to 27th April 2014.

(From 13th to 20th December 2013 and from 21st to 27th April the area will be partially open)

The Portes du Soleil in numbers:

· 296 slopes: 28 black, 106 red, 127 blue, 35 green

· 194 mountain lifts

· 11 snowparks

· 90 slopeside restaurants


In France in the morning, in Switzerland in the afternoon! With the Dents du Midi and Mont Blanc in your sights you are in Châtel, from where you can enjoy the incredible skiing of the Portes du Soleil, the largest cross-border ski area in the world.

Châtel is a charming Alpine village in the heart of the Portes du Soleil ski area. It lies on the border of France and Switzerland and is full of rustic charm. The lively village is full of traditional style chalets and hotels and is truly picturesque. Chatel has a lively village centre with a wealth of activities for everyone to enjoy. Traditional Savoyard style restaurants line the main street in the village and there is a plentiful supply of bars for those interested in some après ski entertainment. There are even a couple of nightclubs in town that will see you through to the small hours! Banks and supermarkets are also available in town.

As well as the plentiful skiing on your doorstop you can also enjoy some outdoor skating at Lac Vonnes, dog-sledding, snow-shoe excursions or the bob-luge at Pre la Joux. If that all sounds a little too energetic then you could head down the valley and relax your aching muscles at the hot springs at Lavey les Bains.

The area is surrounded by beautiful and inspiring mountain vistas, from the local ranges of the Dents du Midi and Dents Blanches, down to Lake Geneva. Further to the south the majestic summit of Mont Blanc dominates the horizon.

Located between Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc, Châtel is just 20 minutes from the Swiss motorways, 1 1/4 hours from Geneva International Airport and 45 minutes form Thonon-les-Bains railway station.

"Great location, amazing holiday"

We hired this apartment for our annual ski trip and it suited us down to the ground. Lots of space inside, good facilities (dishwasher, broadband etc), amazing views of the mountains from the lounge and in a really good location. The apartment is close enough to walk to both town and the main ski-lifts at Linga or if you wanted to get the bus it is really close to the stops for buses going in either direction.

Chatel village has plenty of choices for eating and drinking and the range of skiing was excellent. We will definitely be going back next year.

"Excellent Ski Chalet in a great location"

This is an excellent chalet in a great location. It is a 1 min walk away from the bus stop to get to the ski lifts, or only a 10 min walk to the lifts themselves. Located half way between the lifts at the foot of Super Chatel or Linga it gives you the option at starting off at a different points. The chalet is comfortable with a great lounge area and having wifi is really useful. If you have young kids there is also a nursery slope just opposite. Chatel also has some great bars and restaurants. I can't recommend this place enough. I will definitely use it again!
