Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Welcome to our modern apartment which we hope will provide a great base for family and friends to unwind after a hard day's skiing, hiking or mountain biking. The accomodation provides a double and separate bedroom with two singles (plus slide out bed for a small child if required) with a bright and airy kitchen/diner and lounge with doors out to the corner terrace. The bathroom is bright with mountain views form the deep bath. In fact, the whole apartment is bathed in light and not overlooked.
Whilst the restaurant options on your doorstep and within a short walk are to be recommended, the apartment provides a nice environment should you want to stay in and relax over a glass of wine with friends or the latest movie on the tv/dvd player.
The apartment and area should appeal to a wide range of people from skiers and snowboarders of all abilities -Chatel has a very good beginners area in Super Chatel whilst the portes du soleil includes ski parks and runs of all colours including the notorious 'Swiss Wall'. Equally, the area is a walkers, climbers and cyclists paradise and day trips to Lake Geneva, award winning spas and golf courses are within easy reach.

The Rhone/French Alps region
Forming part of the immense Portes du Soleil, a consortium of 14 ski villages ranging from the internationally recognized (Morzine, Avoriaz, Les Gets) to unspoilt hamlets, Châtel offers skiers and boarders access to 650 km of piste and 29 ski lifts.
There are more than 65km of footpaths in and around Chatel and over 300km of well marked trekking routes in the Portes du Soleil. Recommended is the Lac de Vonnes and the woods surrounding it, the meadows and farms lower down the valley. Stopping off at one of the many local farms or cheeseries to taste local produce is a must!

Chatel is a very popular mountain biking resort in the summer with over 24 lifts open giving access to 580km of marked cycle tracks in the Portes Du Soleil. Bikes and equipment can be hired from the nearby ski/bike shop 2 minutes away. Contact James at Vertical Horizons.
White Water rafting.
White water rafting is done on the river Dranse. A team of well organised and professional instructors will ensure that you have a safe but thrilling day out. While you are here you can also try canyoning, white water swimming, canoeing and paragliding.
This is unique to Chatel, there are 2 fantasticable lines stretching over Plaine Dranse. Open every day from March this is truly and incredible experience where you will reach speeds of up to 100 kmh.
If you wish to see the mountains on horse back then this can also be organised through the local stables.
We would also highly recommend a day trip down to Lake Geneva (Lac Leman) for a day's sailing. The nearest school is in Thonon-les-Bains (40 mins away).
