About Adam Heath

We are two brothers and our families who live in the UK but have recently bought this property, previously owned and listed by Alpine Quests. This is our first season renting this property , but have considerable experience of renting property previously and have a good knowledge of the Portes du Soleil ski area.

Adam Heath purchased this chalet in 2017

Why Adam Heath chose Châtel

It is beautiful from the outside and from inside. It is very reasonably priced for the first season, and will still be reasonable thereafter. Frangins is close to restaurants, bars, the village centre, ski lifts and the free navette, which can take you further, stops at the top of our garden.

Fantastic chalet in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Prefect holiday from start to finish. Wonderfully easy start with SkiHire2U arriving at the chalet on the first evening to fit the kit that we had ordered, they also collected the kit from the excellent boot room (boot heaters, plenty of space on benches for all of us etc) after we left!

The Chalet itself manages to be both huge & cosy, great open plan living room with a roaring fire, huge dining table, great kitchen, amazing views from balcony and bedroom plus a sauna and hot tub for easing aches!

Great skiing around Plaine Dranse, loads of friendly Blues and some not unfriendly Reds though the are plenty of 'dark' Reds and more for the more adventurous. Further afield, Avoriaz, Morzine and even Switzerland easily accessible, with the ski parks @ Super Chatel definitely worth a visit. We had a couple of brilliant instructors/ guides, booked via the chalet info, catering both for a couple of beginners and some fearless teenagers!

We ate a couple of times on the mountain (though the chalet is easily close enough to head back for lunch), Chez Crepy at Plaine Dranse if definitely worth a lunch visit though Chez Babeth is a cute little lodge I liked, pretty much out of sight behind Crepy but worth finding as great little hideaway for a vin chaud!

In Chatel, restaurants Bistro M, La Poya, Genepi all excellent. La Poya not cheap but amazing food and for a group the Raclette @ Cafe Zeph should also be near the top of your 'to do' list.

Avalanche and Nasca are both fun bars for drinks with all the above an easy walk from the chalet.

Lovely chalet, well situated and stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday in this well appointed chalet. The beds were very comfortable with fine linen and luxurious towels. Everything had been beautifully thought through with great decoration, lots of wood for the fire, comfy sofas and even plenty of plug adaptors! The kitchen was well equipped to cater for our two families,including girlfriends - 16 in all (though a second dish washer would have given extra luxury, and the dining table seats 14). The sauna and hot tub were much enjoyed by us all. The two bus stops are within easy walking distance though the free buses are not quite as frequent as they say they are. The skiing was brilliant with fresh snow even in April, and plenty of sunshine too. We loved sitting on the balcony enjoying the stunning views in the evening sun. We would love to return!

Superb chalet in great lication

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully appointed chalet, immaculately clean with superb views along the valley.

Everything had been thought about. We didn’t want fir anything.

The beds were extremely comfortable which was a first for me on a skiing trip!

The location was super, just a short walk into town and a stones throw from the supermarket. As too was the leisure centre/ swimming pool.

I would go again without hesitation.

Beautiful chalet in a great location

  • 5 of 5


This is a beautiful chalet. Very well equipped and in a great location - just a few minutes walk from the village centre and a stones throw from the free ski bus. Beautiful bedrooms with comfortable beds, and superb communal areas. Hot tub and sauna were great for reviving achy ski legs at the end of the day! and the games room was an added bonus. Only slight disappointment was that we all ran out of the complementary Temple Spa toiletries after a couple of days.

Communications with the owner Adam; Glen from Alpine quests who arranged transfers and Skihire2u were all excellent. Glen even managed to arrange a transfer at short notice for us when our flights were cancelled.

This was a great trip thoughroughly enjoyed by all our party. I would highly recommend Chalet Fragins and look forward to staying here again.

Luxury chalet in central village location

  • 5 of 5

The chalet exceeded all of Our expectations, the photographs don’t do justice to how luxuriously appointed it is.

The beds were the comfiest I’ve slept in in any ski chalet I’ve stayed, made up with luxurious Egyptian cotton linen.

The location of the chalet couldn’t have been more convenient, being only a short walk from both the ski bus stop and the centre of the village.

The ski area is vast, with many wonderful restaurants on the pistes that won’t break the bank!

Beautifully presented chalet in great location

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic chalet, with great attention to detail, our party of 6 children and 8 adults found it plenty big enough to not be on top of each other , yet still cosy. By far our favourite chalet we have stayed in. Bus is a stones throw from the chalet and takes minutes to get to chairlifts, with ski rental, a small supermarket and the local aqua centre about 200m away there was no need to venture far. The large kitchen and dining area made it perfect for eating in. We will definitely be back!!
