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 Portes du Soleil pass you can ski at 2000m on different slopes every day. Ski schools and nursery slopes are on offer at both locations and there is a ski nursery for small children next to the apartment.
Châtel caters for many local French people as well as visitors from the UK and Holland. There is a wide selection of restaurants and bars - traditional Savoyard and contemporary international. Everything you need from ski equipment to local delicacies is within walking distance. Travelling to the major ski areas or walking centres is easy by free public bus. The Abondance Valley offers picturesque villages and challenging outdoor pursuits including climbing, walking, white water rafting, kayaking and high ropes.

We stayed in this Apt over New Year 2013/14. from the moment we arrived the accommodation far exceeded our expectations. The accommodation was clean and had all the comforts of home. The Apt was in walking distance of the village and had excellent bus links. The agent for the property was prompt in dealing with our queries and advising on ski passes. The whole package from booking till check out was very professional. We would thoroughly recommend this property for the price and quality and hope to return in the future, Kim,John, Ian,Debbie, Nikki and Nigel six very happy holiday makers.

"Excellent accommodation in a wonderful setting"
We stayed in this apartment for 2 weeks last summer and loved it so much that we are going back again this year for our holiday! It was perfect for us as a family of five. Clean, well equipped and comfortable,gorgeous views and walking distance to the lovely village of Chatel. We spent many happy hours riding on different chair lifts, walking along trails, and relaxing down by Lake Geneva . All in all the perfect accommodation in the perfect resort!

"Fantastic Apartment with stunning views"
We stayed here for a week with 2 small children and grandparents. We found the apartment very spacious and warm. Was very near to free bus stops to Ling/Pre la Joux but we did have a friend who lives in Chatel with a car as the bus was sometimes full! Had views across Chatel and the valley and a great balcony to enjoy them from. Had fully fitted kitchen with dishwasher and washer. The only downside was the WIFI didn't work as we had non skiiers. Great place will be booking again Thanks
Thank you for your review. I'm really glad you had a good stay in Chatel and found the apartment so comfortable. I am very sorry that the Wi Fi wasn't working. I thought we had fixed the problem by repairing the phone line and resetting the hub, evidently not. I will reboot the whole thing myself next week. Please be assured the fibre optic cables are usually very fast and reliable. Look forward to seeing you again next year.

Thanks for your review and I'm pleased you had such a good trip, the apartment is indeed pretty good for a family with teenagers. You are not the first guests to suggest a microwave, so we will get one for next year. Thanks again.

"Fantastic place for an active and beautiful summer holiday"
This is a lovely property in a beautiful Alpine town, in a breathtaking valley. The apartment is great place to stay, being really well appointed, having gorgeous open views, and with a superb balcony that affords those breathtaking views and a loevly place to relax or eat. The town of Chatel is very unspoilt, with great facilities for everything you would need in a stay here - shops selling local produce, inc. food and drink, pottery, fashion and trekking clothing, and much more. Then there are plenty of restaurants and bars ot choose from, to suit all tastes, and many events organised to keep everyone entertained. The walking straight from the place is all anyone could want, and this can easily be added to or varied by taking local ski lifts in the summer, thus extending your range greatly. The mountain biking in the area was fantastic too, as we used trails and roads, and also more demanding downhill runs. Then for those interested in the wildlife the alpine meadows, woodlands and mountain tops are still awash with an incredible variety of flowers in summer. I should think you could spend many holidays here and still be finding new and beautiful things to see and do, and revisiting others because they were just so special.
