Description from owner
One bedroom apartment in Le Yeti Residence, Chatel, in the Portes du Soleil.
Situated in Petit Chatel, which is the sunniest and quietest part of Chatel, close to the Barbossine ski lift and close to free shuttle buses around the resort, this one bedroom apartment has a double bedroom, bunk beds, living room with kitchenette and dining table, balcony, bathroom with shower/bath, separate WC, electric radiator heating, ski locker, and private parking.
The apartment is located on the second floor and there is a lift and stairs for access. The apartment faces due East for morning sunshine, and cooler summer afternoons, with views over towards Super Chatel.
Chatel is the most Swiss of the French Alps ski resorts, being minutes from Switzerland, and is pretty in a way that many of the other purpose built resorts are not.
It is also close to Geneva Airport, and has the huge advantage of being connected to the largest ski region in Europe, the Portes du Soleil. It is possible to ski on over 650kms of pistes between various French and Swiss ski resorts including Morzine, Les Gets, Champery, Morgins, and Avoriaz..
In the village you will find everything you need:-
Doctors, chemist, infirmary, masseurs-physiotherapists, dentists, optician, banks, taxis, garages, petrol station, car hire, linen hire, TV hire, food shops, sports shops, clothes shops, craft shops, gift shops, souvenir shops, 2 cinemas, bowling, French ski school, British ski school.
In the winter and summer seasons, there are free buses that run regularly through the village (and stopping close to the flat), serving the various piste access points. The service also runs in the evening. However most guests use their cars which is much easier.
In Summer you can relax in the fresh mountain air or partake in some of the many activities that are available in the area such as walking, climbing, mountain biking, horseback riding, hydrospeed and white water rafting, canyoning, canoeing, fishing, swimming in one of the three pools in Chatel, archery, tennis, French bowls, golf, mini-golf, rollerblading, trampolining, bobsled, 'devalkart' (gravity karting or Devil Karting) and 'Fantasticable' (a unique cable ride between two mountain peaks).
The beautiful scenery makes the entire area is a haven for walkers and mountain bikers. With over 200km of marked paths covering forests and high pastures, and more than 50 peaks to climb in a region stretching from Lake Geneva to Mt Blanc you will not be short of new places to visit. Maps of the local footpaths are available from the Tourist Office. They also have a list of qualified guides able to help you explore the spectacular mountains and see the best of the local wildlife.
Chatel is also a great touring location being just 5 minutes from the Swiss border - from there you can descend to the Valais, and explore the amazing resorts such as Zermatt and Saas Fee for a day trip. Also possible for the day is a trip through the Grand St Bernard tunnel to the Aosta valley in Italy.
Lake Geneva is very accessible either at Evian, Thonon and Yvoire in France or Montreux, Vevey and Lausanne in Switzerland.

A short distance from the apartment is the shuttle bus stop giving free rides all around the resort and between the different ski areas in season.

- Very Good
“Great week again in the portes soleil.”
Communication with Andrew was fantastic, very helpful crib sheet provided and efficient booking and check in. Appartment itself is pleasant and very well equipped, however would exercise caution if a group of 4 adults as would be very cramped. Only thing stopping a 5 start review is the location, found in petit Châtel, it really is a bus drive into town or a good 15-20minute walk. Having said that the buses in Châtel are good and it’s easy enough, and for the price it really is excellent value for money. Would have no hesitation in staying again.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind review of Apartment 16 in Le Yeti 6 in Petit Chatel, I am so glad you had a good stay, it was a pleasure to welcome you to the area. I think really that Chatel is a ski resort where a car is a huge advantage, so I would counsel against using the ski buses only. Do come again next winter or consider a summer break when the place is transformed into a beautiful summer resort ! Kind regards, Andrew Beale
“A superbly positioned apartment for some fantastic skiing”
We had a brief 4 day skiing holiday in Chatel staying in this superbly positioned apartment. Its great for the pistes at Super Chatel and Barbossine and a 5 minute drive to Pre La Joux. Barbossine is easily walkable. The apartment has all you need - endless hot water, dedicated parking, great views etc. I'd recommend it and will return.
“Easy and Convenient”
I visited the apartment with two girlfriends on a ski mini break. The view and location is beautiful and it was so convenient to hop on and off buses to the slopes. Perfect to come back to after a hard day skiing!
I stayed in this lovely apartment for a few days during the October half-term. It is spotlessly clean, well maintained and has all the amenities needed after a days exploring or skiing. It is in a wonderful location and the balcony boasts fantastic views. I would not hesitate to recommend this property. All in all, a very enjoyable few days!
I stayed in this apartment with my husband and 2 children aged 11 and 7 for a few days during half-term. It is in an ideal location next to a mountain stream. The facilities are great and there is everything you could need after a hard days walking or skiing.
