About this location

The Rhône-Alpes region

The Abondance Valley offers varied skiing with links into Switzerland and access to infamous ski runs such as The Wall. The Portes du Soleil has an excellent snow record. The village of Chapelle D'Abondance has the advantage of retaining its very traditional rustic charm. Within easy walking distance of the Penthouse there is a micro brewery, several excellent restaurants, a boulangerie and patisserie as well as a small pizza take away.

Car essential during summer months


There are several local events all year round. Look up the Chapelle D'Abondance or Chatel local websites for up to date details.

As well as downhill skiing there are cross country trails, snow shoeing, dog sled and sleigh rides. Torch light descents, skidoo rides and local spa and beauty facilities.

In the summer months mountain biking, hill walking and climbing are the most popular pursuits. Other activities include white water rafting, cannyoning and the Fantasticable.
