Chalet Cannelle is a spacious 200 year old cowshed and farmhouse lovingly renovated with exposed beams and original farmhouse doors as well as modern luxuries and comfort. Located in Chatel, central to the magnificent Portes du Soleil; one of the world’s largest ski areas crossing both France and Switzerland and encompassing 13 ski stations. The valley has history dating to the 13th century as well as being famous for the Abondance cheese - which was once made in this cowshed. The open plan living space with log fire and views of the Abondance valley through double height windows is a perfect spot to relax after an active day in the mountains

The chalet offers luxury accommodation for up to 12 people. The 5 bedrooms are individual inviting retreats with fine bed linen, fair trade fabrics and upcycled vintage pieces adding to their unique charm. Chalet Cannelle is still evolving; we love finding another quirky piece or artist that contributes to our boutique chalet. important on your ski holiday! Hearty breakfasts with hot and cold options, afternoon tea with cake and hot drinks, canapes and a 4 course dinner.

At Chalet Cannelle we take our passion for quality homemade food and the region's outstanding local produce seriously. You can expect a menu of traditional French specialities and modern international dishes...and we do like to offer a few contemporary twists on the classics too.

The little ones...We have a cosy playroom on the mezzanine, with toys, books and games to keep them happy, and a nintendo unless you want us to hide that away. There is a large private garden to build snowmen in the winter or play in the summer. There are no roads to worry about and the garden is overlooked by the living area and balcony for your peace of mind.

We can provide cots and high chairs and we have 3 foldaway beds suitable for young children that can be added to most of the bedrooms.

Visit us in Winter and enjoy the fire with the snow all around or come in Summer when the cow bells fill the valley and enjoy an alfresco dinner on the terrace.

About Chatel

Situated on a south facing slope within the magnificent Abondance valley, Chatel's traditional alpine charm and picture perfect scenery will leave you enchanted. Châtel has the envious position of the highest village in the Abondance valley. Sitting on the border of the French & Swiss alps at 1200m, Chatel is surrounded by the craggy peaks of the Dents du Midi with a view over the whole valley. There are alpine chalets and pine trees everywhere you look in this Savoyarde village - you won't find any high rise concrete buildings here!

The offering of a traditional alpine village with the modern amenities is unique - Châtel has an old charm atmosphere that is hard to find. In the summer, the sound of cow bells will remind you that Châtel is still a rustic farming village as well as a world class holiday destination. Châtel has been awarded the Station Verte, Station Class and Famille Plus for its unspoilt environment, high standard of tourist facilities and family friendly attitude.

Châtel village lies at an altitude of 1200m with the ski area rising up to 2200m. The terrain is suitable for skiers and boarders of all abilities and holds a fantastic snow record. Whether you enjoy hair raising black runs, tree lined long runs, taking on the pipe, easy blues or off piste powder, Châtel and the Portes du Soleil has it covered.

Châtel is one of 12 linked resorts that make up the impressive Portes du Soleil ski region spanning both France and Switzerland. The area enjoys exceptional snowfall, averaging 8m per year. There are 4 ski lift areas in Chatel, making it easy to start somewhere new each day and experience different pistes. There are direct access to the resorts of Avoriaz, Torgon and Morgins which have onward links to other resorts such as Morzine and Les Gets.

Châtel offers plenty of retail therapy, with outdoor clothing stores, souvenir shops and speciality produce such as French cheese & delicious saucission (Savoyarde cured sausage). Don't miss the weekly Wednesday market from 8am - 12:30pm

Châtel has a good selection of bars, perfect for a lively night or a quiet drink with a spectacular view. L'Escalier is a modern bar with good bar food and also a popular restaurant. Le Tunnel is a lively bar with live music and free wifi. They also have a free shuttle bus which can be booked by calling +33 627 31 60 00. There is a micro-brewery towards La Chapelle d'Abondance, Le Fer Rouge and is worth a visit for beer lovers

The village restaurants serve affordable Savoyard specialities such as raclettes, fondues and Tartiflette. We highly recommended the Fiacre or Pierrier. There are numerous choices for non French fare too. The Hors Piste and La Flambee both serve pizzas and L'Escalier has a range of European and international cuisine.

Summer in Chatel:
The French alps are not just about snow; in the summer the mountains turn green and lush under the craggy peaks and the valley becomes a sensational location for a summer holiday. Whether it be burning off some energy on the mountain bike trails, taking in the scenery with a hike or a stroll or simply relaxing in the chalet gardens, there is something for everyone in Châtel.

The Summer Lifts
Pedestrians & bikers can reach the peaks of the alps effortlessly by using the network of 24 ski lifts to access the trails though out the mountains. Two lifts operate during summer in Châtel - the Super- Châtel lift in the village and Pierre-Longue lift at Pré-la-Joux. Avoriaz can be reached via the Rochassons lift at the top of the Pierre-Longue lift.
