About Veronica Roper

My name is Veronica Roper , I live in Lancashire , England, but born & bred in the Lake District -- mountains , forests , lakes are in my blood . I was a District Nursing Sister & then a Nursing Offcer which I enjoyed very much .

I love the outdoor life - skiing of course , walking & I used to rock climb !!, I love driving & have driven all over the world , enjoy driving to Chatel , staying at Chambre d'Hote's , buying champagne & wine !

I have one dog- black labrador -- Rhum is rum 2 years ago he ate 2 Christmas cakes nearly killed himself , they are not allowed dried fruit etc. !

I love Le Jessi & looking after it hoping that is comfortable for my guests as everybody is so welcome. I also welcome everyone to my cottage in the Lake District which I rent out .

Veronica Roper purchased this apartment in 1989

Why Veronica Roper chose Châtel

Chatel & the area is so beautiful , it is a farming community which I have been used to all my life . The view from the long balcony of the apartment is stunning , ever changing & you look towards the Famous Abondance Valley -- it is a fanastic pick up both winter & summer .

What makes this apartment unique

We bought the apartment ' Off Plan ' !! we fell in love with the view & the situation -- near all amenties -- shops , bars, cafes , restaruants , ski lifts , free navette , ski shops , accessibilty from France & Switzerland . It is a great sucess , loved by family , friends & guests alike , you are able to catch a free navette -- Ligne 1 -- outside the apartment although it is 2 minute walk to the shops .

The apartment is very well equipped & it is extremely useful having 2 loos & my own private parking space underneath the building..

We had a good stay in this very well equipped property. The owner is most helpful,.

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable, if a little on the small side for the price, which probably reflects Chatel pricing. Adequate for 4 however.

Truly a Home-from-Home with stunning views down th

  • 5 of 5

A lot of care and attention to detail has gone into this compact but well furnished chalet. Everything you need is there, and more besides, and detailed instructions covering everything you need to know. Veronica is really helpful and obviously wants her guests ti be comfortable - cannot fault it. Chatel in September is quiet, being off-season, which we knew, but the views are great and a good mix of weather (snow last night, but 25 degrees and sunny on arrival, with more sun to come).

Would certainly want to come back - probably in the summer season when more is open, but we were stuck with our travel dates, and not disappointed at all. Lovely clean air a real bonus, and access to Switzerland in 5 minutes - then on to Chamonix/Mont Blanc in around an hour. The drive up the valley to Chatel is great, but windy, and you are not far from Lake Geneva (50 mins) which is always worth a visit.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much indeed for your very positive review , I am glad you found the apartment well appointed -- I do try to achieve a ' home from home ' atmosphere & the view from the balcony down the Abondance Valley is amazing . I noticed on the webcam that there was a dusting of snow on the top of Le Linga & Morclan. ! Thank you again, Veronica

Best equipped holiday let I've experienced

  • 4 of 5

This is a great apartment, practical, homely and clean. Plenty of storage, 2 loos (very handy), great inventory for those who want to cook. Absolutely fantastic views down the valley. Nice touch of a welcome bottle of wine from the owner.

Perfect place for a hill-walking holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a perfect holiday in Chatel in a really well-equipped, comfortable and cosy appartment - with a marvellous view over the Abondance valley.

After lots of splendid walks (our favourite was the walk to "Chalet du Mouet") and a short, refreshing swim in the new out-door swimming pool (more or less next door to the appartment) - we enjoyed our evenings on the balcony watching the sunset and the breath-taking horizon.

The location of the appartment just like the description of its equipment correspond exactly to what we were expecting because of the information we had found on the HomeAway Website before. So if you you want to spend a relaxing holiday with a lot of possibilities to go hill walking, it's the place to go.

Fantastic apartment and resort

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely family ski holiday in Chatel. The apartment is very well located in Chatel, within easy walking reach of the shops, restaurants and ski lift.

With two children, aged 8 and 5, the lift was near enough for us all to carry our own ski equipment, which is very useful!

The apartment certainly was home from home for us, providing spacious, clean and comfortable accommodation.

The vast ski domain provides for all abilities, which includes a good mix of ski runs for beginners and a great ski school that our children enjoyed.

We definitely recommend this apartment, and we have already booked in for next ski season!

Chatel is also very popular in the Summer for walking & mountain biking -- large world events are held here.

During both winter & summer seasons the Chatel Tourist Office provides a programme of activities for both adults & children , concerts and they will give you advice on various walks.

In the apartment are guide books , maps & information about the area . Also there are board games .

LA VIELLE DOUANE is a new museum - it is the old customs house which has been converted into a cultural tourist attraction , offering visitors a different view of this border region - very interesting.

There are various Spa's in the village -- the information is in the Chatel brochure which is full of information to help you to enjoy your stay in Chatel.

Just over the Swiss border there are 2 thermal pools -- VAL d'ILLIEZ & LAVET LE BAINS they are great fun -- open summer & winter -- wonderful been in the pool looking towards to snow covered mountains -- what a treat !

Down the valley in ABONDANCE there is the famous ABBEY with very old outside wall paintings & the MAISON D' ABONDANCE which is a museum/ information centre of the region & it tells you about the famous Abondance cheese -- the Abondance cows have brown spectacles on !!

In MORGIN, just over the Swiss border there is a very interesting walk along the PLANETARY WAY , on the way call in at the farm cafe and look at the carved tables inside -- it is all the signatures from the region of Monthey .

Walks , bird watching & abundance of wild flowers & if you are lucky you may see a Marmotte or hear one -- they soound like a buzzard.

In the summer there is an offer of a MULTI PASS 2 €uro per day per person , it is really good value & helps you to discover the mountains & activities

Le Jessi is very well situated in the lovely Savoyard village of Chatel where the restraunts provide excellent food including Savoyard specialities -- fondues , tartiflette , racelette & berthoud -- they are very tasty .
