Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday chalet in Chatel
4 bedroom, 2 bathroom, sleeps 8/10 inc child & baby in cot
Set in the heart of the largest linked ski area in Europe, Fleurs des Montagnes is situated at the front of the sought after Les Coprins chalets and enjoys uninterrupted breathtaking views often used for postcards of the village. We are only 50m from a chairlift taking you to 650km of marked runs, or you can catch the free 'navette' which stops near the bottom of the drive to the other lifts, which are only minutes away. The nearest lift will also take you into some wonderful mountain walking paths, if skiing is not for you. Chatel has an enviable snow record and even in the poor 2006/2007 season, visitors reportedly only lost 5 days due to poor weather.
Guests can benefit from a 10% discount on ski/boot hire (We also give advice on the better restaurants!) Waiting for you will also be a welcome pack, so coffee, tea or glass of red wine will be available for you after your journey
This beautiful chalet is built on 3 floors including a large lounge/dining area with an extensive south facing terrace and separate designer kitchen, all with uninterrupted wonderful views. Switzerland is minutes away by car, or ski using the chair lift 50 m from chalet, which will also take you into the linked area. Navette bus takes you to other lifts every 20 minutes from 8.15am to late evening. 40 runs immediately surrounding Chatel- 5 black, 17 reds, 12 blues 6 greens and 27 snow cannons.

We bought the chalet as we wanted somewhere we could have holidays with our children when they would normally not want to holiday with their parents; skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer was a perfect solution. We chose Chatel as it is still a working mountain village and not solely focused on winter sports. The local farmers still make wonderful cheese and other produce which mean the sounds of cowbells in the summer!
