How to find us:: By Plane: Geneva Airport is only 75km away By Train: there are stations at Thonon-les-Bains in France (SNCF), and Aigle or Monthey in Switzerland (CFF). By Car: there are two routes into Châtel, either via Thonon-les-Bains in France, or via Monthey in Switzerland. Driving from Calais you can usually get to Châtel in around 9 hours. Our suggested route is motorway from Calais to Besançon, Pontarlier, towards Lausanne, Montreux, Monthey, Morgins, and Châtel.

Winter:: Chatel (1235m/4025ft) is one of the most attractive resorts in the Haute-Savoire region of the French Alps. It is part of the Portes du Soleil, one of the largest ski regions in Europe, covering 12 resorts including Avoriaz, Morzine, Les Gets in France and Champéry, Torgon and Morgins in Switzerland. In all it has over 650km of ski slopes with 208 lifts all accessible using a single, inclusive ski-pass.

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'.

Summer:: In the summer season you have access to hundreds of kilometers of mountain biking tracks and mountain footpaths of varying difficulty. 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. The lifts are open during July and August making your mountain ascents much easier.

There are 8 tennis courts and a large open air pool within a 10 minute walk of the apartment. Facilities for other activities such as rock climbing, via ferrata, white water rafting, pony trekking and canyoning are also close by.

The pretty towns of Evian and Thonon-les-Bains are both within a 40 minute drive. Here you can catch a ferry to travel across lake Geneva or participate in other beach side activities such as watersking and sailing. These towns also have spa and wellness centers. On the Swiss side, Montreux (home of the world renowned Jazz Festival during the first two weeks of July) is a 40 minute drive away.

Close to all you need

  • 4 of 5

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)!

Ski Haven

  • 5 of 5

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.

Highly recommended!

An excellent hoilday spot.

  • 5 of 5

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.
