Chatel has an excellent snow record and Le Soli is ideally placed for getting to the ski slopes. The Super Chatel gondola is a short walk away and free buses depart from the market square for the chair lifts in Linga and Pre-la-Joux.
All levels of skiers and snowboarders are well catered for with mile after mile of well groomed runs for intermediates and easy access to a number of high altitude slopes for beginners. For experts, the amount of easily accessible off piste is just phenomenal. There are also a number of good, steep black runs including the infamous 'Swiss Wall'.

There are also man-made mountain biking trails to suit all levels throughout the region with dedicated bike parks at Pre-la-joux and Super Chatel.

Nous avons passe de tres bonnes vacances a Chatel, l'apartment etait magnifique. Il y a une tres belle vue du balcon
Really nice apartment, very comfortable for 4 adults, close to town centre, owner and agent both a pleasure to deal with, would definitely stay there again if returning to Chatel.
My friend and I stayed in the apartment for a week in July 2009 and had an extremely comfortable stay. We loved the amazing view of the mountains from the main family room as well as watching the sunset from the well sized veranda after long days of walking and exploring.
The apartment is a great size for a small group of friends/family of 6 with all you need provided inside and outside! The apartment is clean and really well stocked with those household things you don't want to have to squeeze into your luggage. It also has a good selection of guide books and brochures on things to do, dvd's and all modern kitchen facilities. Outside, you have excellent access to walks, ski runs, Tourist Information Centre, local shops, restaurants, cable cars and basically all you need. The town provided entertainment for children and near by is great mountain biking routes and walking tracks/ski runs for all ages and abilities. I would highly recommend basing yourself in this perfectly located apartment in Chatel and exploring all that the town and area has to offer (Montraux Jazz Festival was fantastic)!
Light, open, clean, well equipped appartment with fabulous views across the valley. Very comfortable, warm with all the facilities you need for a low stress skiing holiday. The balcony was perfect for a beer and sunset view after a hard days skiing. Local ski hire and tourist offices were very helpful. Access to a vast range of ski fields to accomodate all abilities. Lovely traditional town with good eateries and bars within a 5 minute walk of the front door.
Owners friendly and approachable and only too willing to give further tips about the area.
Had a great hoilday in this beautiful spot. Apartment clean and tidy with everything you need. Comfortable beds. Only a few minutes walk to all the town facilities and restaurants. Great views from the balcony. Owners good to deal with and very helpful. Multipass great in the summer so able to access the summer chairlifts very cheaply. Did loads of great walks. Highly recommend this apartment.
