The Resort

Châtel is your very best alternative to purpose-built resorts. Situated in between Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc, this traditional French alpine village climbs up the hillside and offers an experience which is still unspoilt by tourism. Châtel is most frequented by French clientele, and aside from school holidays you won’t find big tour operators bringing busloads of British tourists around. The surrounding area is also full of beautiful natural sites, so if you’re keen to spend an afternoon off the slopes, hiking or snowshoeing are great options. These excursions also make Châtel the perfect site for an alpine holiday in summer.

On the sunlit slopes right above the village, you’ll find Châtel’s own pistes. They are very scenic to ski, and one of the lifts to the top even provides fantastic views over Lake Geneva. The resort is separated into two areas, Barbossine-Super Châtel and Linga-Pre la Joux, which are linked by a free bus service. The highest slope peaks at 2200 metres and there are 46 runs in total. Châtel has many long tree-lined runs that are suitable for any proficiency level and that stay open until late April.

Châtel is also part of the world famous Portes du Soleil circuit, made up of twelve resorts spread across the French-Swiss border. You can ski Châtel and some of its surrounding areas (including Torgon and Morgins in Switzerland) with a Châtel Liberté Lift Pass, or you can get access to the whole of the Portes du Soleil with a wider area pass and explore its 600 kilometres of slopes. Beginners might be happy staying closer to Châtel while intermediate and expert skiers cover the more challenging parts of the circuit. If you choose the latter, you could find yourself starting out a run in France and ending it in Switzerland.

Keep in mind that Châtel is limited in terms of après-ski. It is not a party resort, but one that caters brilliantly well for families. Special events and activities are held for children year-round, and there is a daycare for those too little to spend all day on the slopes. Instead of spending your evening at the bars, Châtel is the place to discover local French cuisine, take the kids sledging or bowling, or even skiing under the stars as part of the resort is floodlit between 7:30 and 9:30 PM.

Reviews

  • Home from home, in a beautiful setting!

    Created on 04/03/2017

    A very peaceful location, with excellent views from all the rooms and balconies. Very comfortable, with a lovely little bar (a little too nice for some). The ski hire folks came to the chalet and fitted us on-site, and came to collect at the end of the trip. No queuing in ski shops for us, and no lugging the kids equipment around!

  • Gorgeous chalet with great food!

    Created on 10/02/2017

    We had a brilliant stay in this chalet in Chatel (we are a family group with 3 children under 10). The chalet itself is beautiful and has been renovated to a very high standard with superbly comfortable bedrooms all with en-suite. The kids loved the bedroom at the top of the house and the games room was a big hit. The views from the living area (main open plan part of the chalet), bedrooms and outside hot tub were stunning.

  • Wonderful Chalet

    Created on 27/12/2016

    We have recently returned from a wonderful week's holiday staying at the Chalet . They Chalet itself is fabulous, the best we have stayed in, very clean, great interiors, TV we could all work(!), beautiful bed linen and comfy beds.
