About Chatel

The Savoyard village of Châtel is perfectly positioned on the French-Swiss border, surround by majestic mountains and sitting at the heart of the Porters du Soleil ski area. At a height of 1200m it holds an enviable snow record and offers unparalleled access to the slopes. Let us welcome you to La Grange au Merle in the coming winter season and you too can ski Châtel in luxury. You'll love it!

The resort
Châtels traditional mountain architecture and lively atmosphere create a haven for families and friends. Whether you enjoy sumptuous local cheeses and charcuterie or cozy bars you will find a wealth of hospitality in this idyllic village resort. Shops selling locally produced cheese and saucisson rub shoulders with aprés-ski bars and restaurants, serving everything from a quick steak frites to fine dining and hearty Savoyard cuisine. The village retains a traditional French atmosphere and is very welcoming to visitors whether on or off the piste.

The Skiing
There are five main lifts that rise into the mountains above Châtel, with the Super Chatel bubble departing from just above the church in the centre of the village. All the lifts are interconnected across the valley, through into Switzerland and across to Morzine and Les Get. Together these form the vast Portes du Soleil ski area. In addition there are several other lift systems within the valley that can provide a day's adventure into a new mountain.

Aprés Ski
The centre of Châtel is home to a number of bars and restaurants. For aprés ski some of our favourites include Pub L'Avalanche, Bar L'Isba and La Godille. Whatever mood you are in, you are sure to find a venue that hits the mark.

A 90 minute transfer from Geneva through beautiful scenery, Châtel has developed into a major ski resort without loosing its traditional alpine character.

Clarian Chalets provide an in-resort chauffeur service. In addition, there is an excellent free ski bus service running all day around the village and a further local bus service which links Châtel with the lower villages of La Chapelle and beyond.

Away from the slopes
For the children and young at heart there is a new leisure facility, bowling alley, cinema, sledging runs and ice rink to keep you entertained.
