Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Chatel - ALPAGE C1

2 bedrooms, kitchen, sitting/dining room, bathroom, sep wc, terrace, store

Ground floor apartment 53 sq metres. Entrance hall with plenty of hanging space for jackets and space to store boots. Double bedroom with cupboard and outside window. Bunk room with chest of drawers, shelves and hooks.

Well equipped kitchen area with full sized oven, grill and 4 induction hobs, dish washer, fridge, microwave, toaster and coffee machine. Bathroom with bath and basin. Separate wc with hand basin. The 17sq m carpeted living room has two double French windows leading onto a terrace and field (grass in summer) affording wonderful views up and down the valley. There is comfortable seating for at least 6 people and dining space (and china/cutlery) for 8 people. There is a double sofa bed in the living room and storage in the dresser and under the fitted banquette. Outside the apartment in the corridor there is a store cupboard for skis and groceries. This also houses 6 outside chairs, 2 deck chairs, barbecue, two garden tables and pierrade.

The apartment has a flat screen TV and DVD player with an eclectic mix of DVDs. There is a radio/CD player and a selection of CDs, board games, cards and books. The apartment has WIFi access.

The apartment has its own outside parking area. A car is recommended but not essential. The bus stop is

immediately outside the apartment and free buses run approximately 8 times per hour and take you to the centre of the village and on to the skiing areas. The Barbossine lift (from where you can access Super Chatel, Morgins, Torgon and right round the whole Portes de Soleil ski area) is 2 minutes down the road. When there is enough snow you can ski back to the apartment. Henri Gonon Skiset shop at Petit Chatel gives a 20% discount on the hire price of skis and booots to people using the apartment. There is a serviced launderette at Petit Chatel. They also sell fresh bread and croissants in the morning. There is a small super market in the centre of the village and a large and extremely well stocked Intermarche below the village on the way home from the main skiing area at Pré la Joux. There are numerous mountain restaurants at various price levels including some particularly good and reasonably priced self service places for lunch. Just above the apartment is a wonderful walk in both winter and summer which takes to you Barbossine and on up to the Col de Saix. When there is a lot of snow raquettes are recommended.

This walk takes you to the charming Chalet Theo for drinks and lunches.

Chatel offers a wonderful summer holiday with many activities. Chair lifts operate in July and August providing quick access for walking and biking as far afield as Morzine and Les Gets. There are numerous mountain bike trails and Bike Parks at Super Chatel and Pré la Joux. White water rafting, paragliding, climbing, fishing, horse riding, swimming, tennis, junior bike park and the Fantasticable are amongst the other summer activities on offer. The town of Abondance just down the valley is worth a visit with its beautiful Abbey and 15c frescoes.

Our apartment is particularly suited to summer holidays because of its terrace and grass area for sitting outside.

Bikes can be brought down the outside bank and locked up on the terrace,.

We have a booklet giving more detailed information which we will send to you when you confirm your booking. This should cover everything you need to know to make your stay at Alpage C1 a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing experience.

About Sarah and Nicholas Roberts

My husband and I bought this apartment because we are both very keen skiers and in 1999 our two sons were young teenagers, also very keen skiers. We used to come out three times each winter to ski and again in the summer to bike and walk. Now the boys are grown up and we are retired we are able to come out in the off season hence our decision to start renting out the apartment. We used to live in London where we ran our own catering company for 25 years. We now live in Herefordshire, on the Welsh borders, where we make cider, keep chickens, duck and llamas and run a small b and b.

Sarah and Nicholas Roberts purchased this apartment in 1999

Why Sarah and Nicholas Roberts chose Chatel

We had both skied in many different places over many years and one year we decided to come to Chatel, which 15 years ago was not that well known. We just fell instantly in love with the village the skiing available in the Portes de Soleil. Since we have been here the lifts have increased and improved enormously which has made it much easier and quicker to discover the whole vast skiing area available. This apartment is very much our second home and we think has a very comfortable and lived in atmosphere. We invite you to make it your home for the time you are here and hope you will find it as comfortable as we do.

Very convenient spacious apartment for the three of us. Easy parking a short drive/ bus ride from the centre of Chatel and within easy walking of a chair lift. Chatel is a pretty resort with lots of atmosphere.

Very nice apartment!

  • 5 out of 5
Very nice and cozy apartment. Clean, well equipped and maintained. Although not very big, the apartment can be considered spacious compared to the usual French wintersport apartments. Very helpful owners. We stayed for a week with 2 adults and 2 grown up children and had a wonderful time skiing in the area. Busstop in front of the apartment. Recommendable to everyone!

A fantastic apartment in Petit Chatel

  • 5 out of 5
We have just come back from a fantastic weeks skiing and we can highly recommend this apartment. The apartment is a good size and accommodated 6 adults with ease. The kitchen is well equipped with a full size oven and a dish washer. The apartment was very clean and is well maintained. The owner provided great service and was always quick to reply to our questions. The apartment is at the far end of Petit Chatel and has the advantage of being the first stop for the ski bus in the morning (although last stop in the evening) A few good bars and restaurants are within a 10 minute walk and Chatel is about a 30 minute walk. The apartment is in a very quiet area and the other occupiers were very friendly. We are looking to use this apartment again.

Confort, calme et superbe vue - A recommander

  • 5 out of 5
Excellent séjour en famille passé cet été dans ce très agréable appartement, tout confort, idéalement situé, offrant une magnifique vue sur le village et la vallée. La terrasse a été très appréciable pour nous reposer et profiter du temps ensoleillé dont nous avons bénéficié lors de notre séjour. La location est très bien entretenue, la literie est bonne. Châtel est une très belle station offrant de nombreuses activités en été pour toute la famille. Merci encore au propriétaire pour son amabilité, compréhension et réactivité. Nous recommandons vivement cette location. Cordialement.

Car: recommended

Alpage (which translates as 'high mountain pasture') C1 is situated in Petit Chatel overlooking the village of Chatel and having uninterrupted views up and down the valley. It benefits from the best of the sun - from early in the morning until the sun sinks behind the Mont de Grange opposite the apartment.

Chatel is an 8 hour drive from Calais and 1.5 hours drive from Geneva. Chatel is part of the huge and varied skiing area of the Portes de Soleil, the most northern part of the French Alps. Chatel is at the end of the beautiful Abundance Valley and on the Swiss border.

A car is recommended but not essential. There is a frequent train service from Geneva airport to Aigle from where there are taxis or buses to Morgin (which is a 10 minute drive from Chatel). At weekends a bus service runs between Geneva Airport and Chatel. There are also various taxi,bus services in the village that provide the same service and of which we can provide details.
