The bathrooms all have a deep bath for you to relax in after a hard day skiing, as well as a shower and a welcome pack of complimentary luxury toiletries by Cowshed.

It is important to us that our guests have the best night’s sleep when staying with us. We spent a lot of time choosing the right beds and the best linen to ensure you have the best chalet experience possible.

Our Catering Service:
We have a passion for fine food and as such, like to make the dining experience at our chalet as important as the skiing. The emphasis is on preparing delicious and beautifully presented food, local and seasonal, with the freshest of ingredients we can source. From freshly made pasta to homemade ice creams we believe in taking no shortcuts. It is a luxury fine dining experience in the mountains.

Each morning, you begin the day with a full continental breakfast with warm croissants and pain au chocolates, a large selection of cereals, hot porridge, fresh fruit and much more.

After a day on the slopes, you will return back to the ski chalet to homemade cakes and biscuits, served with a drink of your choice.

The evening is then your time to sit back and relax, and enjoy a four course evening meal, served with carefully selected fine wines.

We are also able to cater for any special dietary requirements.

Please note that we have one night off during the week (generally a Wednesday), thereby giving you the chance to experience the many excellent local restaurants. We will be happy to advise you on these and make reservations.

About Chatel

Skiing in the Portes du Soleil:
Around 40 years ago a group of passionate skiers wanted to open one of the largest linked ski areas in Europe, and they did……the Portes du Soleil ski area was created offering a winter sports playground covering 12 resorts in 2 countries – France and Switzerland.

With a massive 650km’s of pistes (not to mention the numerous km’s of off-piste!), the area offers superb skiing and snowboarding for all ages and levels. From spacious and wide slopes for beginners, cruising runs for intermediates, and challenging black runs and off-piste skiing for the more advanced skiers, the huge Portes du Soleil ski area and stunning scenery is shouting out to be explored.

Chatel itself offers a mix of open and wooded slopes suitable for all abilities. Nestled between Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc, the area around Chatel creates its own micro climate thus giving the area an amazing snow record – don’t be fooled by a higher resort having better snow, this is not always the case! With easy access to Avoriaz, Morzine and the Swiss side of the Portes du Soleil ski area, Chatel is an extremely convenient location. Perhaps ski France one day and then Switzerland the next, the choice is yours!

Here at Chalet Rustique, we can guide you around the mountain and point you in the direction of the best pistes, hidden powder runs and the top restaurants to eat in.

Other winter activities that can be enjoyed in the area are cross country skiing, snow-shoeing, ice skating, ice fishing and much more!

Ski Facts:
- 650km of pistes
- 202 lifts
- 286 runs
- 694 snow canons
- 89 mountain restaurants

Summer in Chatel:
The area of Portes du Soleil in the summer time is one of the most beautiful places to visit in the French Alps. In the summer, with the high temperatures and its relaxed and fun atmosphere, it really is the perfect location for a summer holiday whatever you decide to do.

Situated just 30km’s south of Lake Geneva, the valley is a wonderful mix of mountains and water. It is the perfect base offering a whole range of different activities and places to visit.

The Abondance Valley has three main villages, which have all retained their traditional alpine charm: Abondance, La Chapelle d’Abondance and Chatel. There are over 40 working farms in the valley, some of which you can visit to see how they make their famous local Abondance cheese. Each village has a local market on different days during the week that are definitely worth a visit. In addition to this, there are many cafés, restaurants and shops to visit in all of the villages.

Abondance is very famous for its Abbey, which is considered one of the most famous monasteries in the Alps.

La Chapelle d’Abondance is perfectly located to climb Les Cornettes de Bises or Mont de Grange, the national park, where you will discover mountain lakes, beautiful alpine flora and local wildlife.

The village of Chatel boasts a swimming pool, tennis courts, a pitch and putt golf course, a summer luge and a whole range of other activities including horse riding and paragliding.

The ski lifts open in mid-June to mid-Sept and provide an opening to over 800km’s of walking trails and paths and more extreme activities like mountain biking and the zip wire called the fantasticable! Alternatively, you may wish to follow more leisurely pursuits and simply relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery.

During the summer time, we offer a bespoke service to follow your holiday requirements no matter what you want to do.
