Some information about Chatel

Chatel's development into a major ski resort has been done in the traditional alpine style and so it still retains much of its original charm.

Chatel itself has an extensive ski area with runs to suit skiers and boarders of all abilities. The whole village is served by a free ski-bus, so wherever you are, you are never more than a few minutes away from the ski-lift of your choice.

The resort is also part of the vast Portes du Soleil domain - the largest international linked ski area in the world with over 650 km of varied terrain spread across 8 French and 4 Swiss resorts. This gives skiers and boarders an almost endless choice of runs on their doorstep.

Although famous as a winter destination, Chatel is also ideal as a summer destination.

Visitors to the area over the summer months can enjoy numerous activities such as windsurfing & sailing (on nearby Lac Leman), white-water rafting, kayaking, paragliding, walking, mountain biking or simply relaxing in the sun by the outdoor pool in a breathtaking mountain environment.

In Chatel, you can find all the amenities you will need to make your holiday hassle free including supermarkets (a hypermarket can be found just outside the village) and a number of bars and restaurants.

For those who still have any energy left after the days activities, the village also offers a bowling alley, cinemas, a toboggan run (winter & summer) and an outdoor swimming pool (summer only).

With pine clad slopes, snow-covered chalets in winter and the sound of cow bells echoing round the valley in summer, Chatel really is one of the most idyllic and attractive resorts you will find in the French Alps.

I can second that view - Chatel is a beautiful and often underrated ski resort. The skiing is excellent and extensive and the snow record is impressive.
