“Fantastic location and beautiful views”

Reviewed 30 Mar 2016

We had a lovely time at Les Pins!! The location is great for the slopes and a short walk to the town centre. The views from the apartment lounge and main sitting area are breath taking and I really missed them when we got home! The apartment is a perfect size and feels really homely! The bathroom is a great size and the shower was lovely and hot! The skiing area was outstanding and so much to choose from. Thank you and would love to come back next year.

“Unbelievable views”

Reviewed 27 Mar 2016

Great apartment, conveniently located. The apartment is well equipped and pleasantly decorated. It has underfloor heating, which makes it lovely and warm after a hard day on the slopes. Also has wifi which is handy for the kids. The most impressive thing is the amazing view from the living room, which opens out onto a ground floor terrace. Our kids loved sledging literally from our back door. Chatel is a gorgeous town, and the centre is about 10 minutes walk. You can also get a free bus shuttle service to the centre and slopes from outside the drive!

“Great stay awesome location!”

Reviewed 18 Mar 2016

The apartment is well equipped with everything you could need, clean and warm (under floor heating was wonderful after a long day on the slopes!). The little varander outside offered lovely apres ski in the sunshine with amazing views across the valley and surrounding mountains. Great location either a short 10 minute walk into Chatel town or a short bus journey, handy if you've got all your ski gear on! The bus stops right outside the apartment. Chatel itself offers some lovely bars and restaurants if you fancy going out instead of cooking at home. Over all a fab holiday and hope to return again.

“Great accommodation”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2015

Stayed with my wife and 2 young children for 3 nights. Really spacious, warm and well equipped. Close to town but a little bit far for us to walk with a buggy. Good wifi connection. Would definitely stay again.

“Great location, amazing holiday”

Reviewed 20 Apr 2014

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”

Reviewed 14 Apr 2014

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!
