The two apartments share a communal main entrance, so ideal if you want to be next door to friends or family but still have your own space and privacy.

The Rhône-Alpes region

The Portes du Soleil is Europe's largest linked ski area comprising fourteen resorts straddling the French and Swiss Border. Quaint swiss villages like Champery and Les Crosets are linked with major french resorts such as Avoriaz, Morzine and Les Gets.

Chatel lies at the centre of this network at the head of the Val d'Abondance and retains a traditional style supporting local farming as well as tourism.

In winter there is excellent alpine and cross country skiing, in summer access to beautiful walks, lakes and some of the world's most challenging mountain biking.

The lakeside spas of Evian and Thonon Les Bains are close by and the cities of Geneva, Montreux, Lausanne and Annecy in easy reach.


With a massive 650km’s of pistes (not to mention the numerous km’s of off-piste!), the Portes du Soleil area offers superb skiing and snowboarding for all ages and levels.

From spacious and wide slopes for beginners, cruising runs for intermediates, and challenging black runs and off-piste skiing for the more advanced skiers, the huge Portes du Soleil ski area and stunning scenery is shouting out to be explored.

Chatel itself offers a mix of open and wooded slopes suitable for all abilities.

Nestled between Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc, the area around Chatel creates its own micro climate thus giving the area an amazing snow record – don’t be fooled by a higher resort having better snow, this is not always the case!

With easy access to Avoriaz, Morzine and the Swiss side of the Portes du Soleil ski area, Chatel is an extremely convenient location. Perhaps ski France one day and then Switzerland the next, the choice is yours!

Located opposite the pistes and lift at Linga, La Tocade is perfectly located, saving you the hassle of ski buses and meaning you can beat the crowds to be first on the pistes to make fresh tracks on those all important blue sky powder days. Equally convenient for those with young children, the Piou Piou nursery, children's ski school, nursery slopes, ski hire locations and local amenities are all only a few minutes' walk away.

Other winter activities that can be enjoyed in the area are cross country skiing, snow-shoeing, ice skating, ice fishing and much more!

In the summer, the ski lifts open in mid-June to mid-Sept and provide an opening to over 800km’s of walking trails and paths and more extreme activities like mountain biking at the, now famous, Chatel Bike Park and the Fantasticable zip wire! Alternatively, you may wish to follow more leisurely pursuits and simply relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Chatel also offers a swimming pool, tennis courts, a pitch and putt golf course, a summer luge and a whole range of other activities including horse riding and paragliding.

Nearby La Chapelle d’Abondance is perfectly located to climb Les Cornettes de Bises or Mont de Grange, the national park, where you will discover mountain lakes, beautiful alpine flora and local wildlife.
