Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday chalet in Chatel

4 bedroom, 2 bathroom, sleeps 8/9 inc child8 adults & baby in cot

Set in the heart of the largest linked ski area in Europe, Fleurs des Montagnes is a detached chalet and therefore unlike an apartment you won't be disturbed by people above, below or either side of you. It 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 100m 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 100m 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. Garage and further car parking space available.

Summer details: Being south facing the chalet receives above average sunshine. There are a vast selection of summer activities including 200 km of marked footpaths and cycle trails in Portes du Soleil, swimming pools, horse riding, angling, tennis and a year round toboggan run- all available in Chatel. Lake Geneva will all its water sports activities is just a 40 min drive and there are plenty of river sports such as white water rafting, kayaking, canyoning etc. 20 mins away in the Abondance valley.

Why Lynne Goulding chose Chatel

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 (and it worked!). 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!

What makes this chalet unique

Amazing elevated views around the valley and being south facing, lots of sunshine!

A well maintained chalet with everything yu could possibly need. The owner Lynne was excellent with her advise and knowledge of Chatel and the surroundng area.

Alhough it was made perfectly clear we still believe that paying extra for linen is unacceptable.

Fabulous time!

  • 5 of 5

The chalet is great. We had a lovely time couldn't have asked for more.

The chalet is very well equipt, anything you could possibly ask for, and the view is incredible! I've never seen anything more beautiful and happily situated than the entire village of chatel.

The owner was excellent, easily contactable via email and very informative gave me lots of useful information, including the best restaurants to eat at. I'd definately return again, and would recommend it to all my friends. We went up many a chair lift, we went on the fantasticable - an amazing experience, and also the luge and the devilkarting. We found everything we needed in the village of chatel, including shopping etc, and just had a fab time!

If you have no car, the public transport is great, many buses available from the village centre.
