Chalet Cannelle is a luxury ski chalet offering a perfect stay whilst you enjoy the skiing and snowboarding of the Portes du Soleil, one of the largest ski regions in the world. Located in Chatel, the centre of the Portes du Soleil with 650km of pistes crossing both France and Switzerland in 13 ski stations with skiing for every ability. Unassuming from the outside but step through the door of Chalet Cannelle to be greeted by the magnificent mountain views from inside a 200 year old cowshed that has had a complete renewal. The spacious open plan living area boasting original features and exposed beams is perfectly matched with a comfortable and contemporary interior, uniquely designed and created.

Everything is about comfort with comfy seating in the large open plan living space around the log fire with views of the Abondance valley through double height windows - the perfect spot to relax after an active day in the mountains. After afternoon tea, take a soak in the outdoor hot tub surrounded in snow before aperitifs and canapés are served around the fire.

There are 6 ensuite bedrooms, each with everything you would expect for a luxury stay; fine quality Egyptian cotton bed linen on super comfy beds, sumptuous towels, gorgeous toiletries & bathrobes. The bathrooms have a mix of walk-in showers and baths to suit everyone. Each bedroom is individually styled to create this unique boutique chalet.

The style of dining at Chalet Cannelle is chefs table, with the open plan kitchen & dining space allowing guests to see what is being created for the evening’s meal; everything is made from scratch with real ingredients so expect to see fresh pasta or pastry being rolled, bread being kneaded or ice cream being churned. We like to say that the dishes we serve you are cooking without cheating; We don't cut corners and if the best tasting pork takes 18 hours to cook, then we take 18 hours to cook it. We serve a varied menu for your stay, from contemporary French and Italian dishes to shared banquet style dining for a Thai feast. Our inspiration comes from our travels and adventures in other countries and we love to share experiences with our guests. If you would like a sample menu, please get in touch. For those of you that consider the food you eat on holiday to be as (or more!) important than the activities, you might like our foodie site, The Alpine Kitchen.

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.

The village restaurants serve affordable Savoyard specialities such as raclettes, fondues and Tartiflette. There are numerous choices for non French fare too.

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.
