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.
