"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!
