Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Chatel - Résidence Armoises

Includes bed linen, towels, cleaning, garage, TV, WiFi internet, local manager.

All-inclusive prices - no extra costs and tourist tax is included.

This modern luxury apartment, finished in 2006, comprises 3 separate bedrooms: one double bedroom, one twin bedroom and one bunk room, and is ideal for 6 people.

Châtel is a traditional Alpine village with a consistently good snow record due to the micro-climate around Mont Blanc and Lac Leman. Châtel is also a major Ski Resort in the vast Portes du Soleil ski area which includes Avoriaz, Morzine and Les Gets. Our apartment is in a quiet location, yet only 50m from the Super-Châtel gondola, and 50m from the resort centre with restaurants, bars, shops and supermarkets.

The apartment is well equipped with oven, hob, dishwasher, fridge, microwave, washer/dryer, iron, UK Satellite TV, DVD Player, Radio/CD, and free WiFi internet.

A new 4000m2 Aquatic Centre is due to open in the centre of Chatel in July 2014.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time skiing, the snow was better than we expected, with all the slopes remaining open for the whole week. The children all became quite proficient, sadly Andrew and I not quite so quickly!



We loved Chatel and having your apartment was great, the location to the buses, shops and gondola, is just great. A long walk is the last thing you need at the end of the day. The apartment was clean, tidy and practical. To manage enough hot water for showers for everyone is quite impressive.

Modern living in a central location

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time our 'lads' skii group have stayed at Les Armoises in January, and there are a few good reasons why we choose it if available. Its clean, modern and well appointed accomodation is ideally situated just 100m up the hill from the centre of Chatel.Free wifi enables us to keep in touch with the UK and there's plenty of room to relax on sofa and chairs. There's no need for a car once at the village and so our transfer to and from Geneva airport is all we need. Super Chatel lift is a few minutes walk down hill and the bus station, with regular free transport to Pres La Joux just 15 mins up the valley, is only 5 mins walk away - also down hill. Hire your skiis from Vincent Sports opposite the bus station and their skii deposit takes any strain out of lugging equipment around the village. Bar La Godille and the restaurants La Pierrier and Le Fiacre are also just at the bottom of the hill - our favourite haunts over our 5 days in the village. Arriving and leaving is easy with Andy, the appartment manager who meets us on arrival with keys and sorts out any minor issues if they arise. All in all it's good value for money for a small but well located flat. It suits our needs to a tee.

Perfect. As described.

  • 5 of 5

A comfortable, modern and well-equipped apartment. Great location only a couple of minutes walk from the centre of Chatel and the Super-Chatel gondola. Nice balcony with stunning views across the valley.

There is secure garage parking under the apartment block, although it's quite steep and tight getting in and out, especially in an estate car and after snowfall.

Faultless service from the owner and local rep.

Lovely Apartment in an excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was exactly as described in the listing. When we arrived we were welcomed by the local manager who let us into the apartment and showed us around. The property is well maintained and very clean. It has a lovely balcony overlooking Chatel Church with a view of the surrounding mountains. We found the apartment very comfortable, especially the beds (I often have difficulty sleeping when away from home!) It is very central to Chatel town centre with local shops and restaurants/bars only a few minutes walk away. The main Gondola took us about 5-7 minutes to walk to with all our ski equipment. This takes you up to the main Super Chatel skiing area. You can also get buses to other lifts but we ended up only using the main Gondola during our stay. This was the first time that our 11 year old daughter and 8 year old son had been on a skiing holiday, so we found the ski runs at Super Chatel perfect for them as they developed their confidence throughout the week. They went to ski school Monday to Friday and this was located at the top of the main Gondola, so it made it really easy to get to from the apartment.

I would recommend this property to others, especially families with young children like ours. We had a fantastic holiday and this apartment, with it's facilities and location, helped make the holiday for us.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Brilliant location close to bars, restaurant, Super Chatel telecabin and bus to Pre La Joux. Apartment clean, warm and comfortable - living space not huge for six people but better than others we have stayed in. Wifi and freeview a big hit with the kids. Good sized balcony/terrace with extra table and chairs for outside.
