Chalet Le Cret is our catered French ski chalet in Chatel. It is a place where you will feel as comfortable as you would in your own home. We invite you to put your feet up and relax. Built in 1952 by Alpine craftsmen, Le Cret is full of fab features from the decade – beautiful furniture mixed with contemporary fittings give it a traditional but cosy and boutique feel.

You’ll also find it fully equipped with all modern requirements, including free WIFI access, UK TV, DVD and HD Apple TV. Feel free to plug your iPod into the sound system and chill in a spacious living area adorned with urban and modern art, coupled with amazing mountain views.

The bedrooms at Chalet Le Cret are individually styled and themed in a move away from the usual standard Alpine chalet offering. Our Egyptian cotton bed linen, gorgeous throws, cushions, lamps and vases create a zen-like feel in which to relax.

These 5 unique, charming and spacious rooms can sleep up to 12 people between them and are split into 3 distinct units. Each unit consists of a hallway, two bedrooms and it’s own toilet and bathroom (with high power showers and oodles of hot water!). Those on a family holiday or traveling in small groups will appreciate the privacy of having their own area whilst still being able to enjoy the social environment of the chalet as a whole.

All bathrooms are individually furnished with complementary toweling bathrobes and toiletries.

For those who like to be close to the hub of the resort then chalet Le Cret has possibly the best location in town, enjoying many local attractions. We are just 3 minutes on foot to the centre of Chatel. When conditions allow you can also ski or snowboard to the back door. In the summer, the large and private garden is a great asset to the chalet; perfect for barbecues, children’s games or simply enjoying the sun and relax with a good book after a day of mountain biking.

Downstairs, we have parking available for those who want to drive over and there is plenty of storage for skis, snowboards and bikes (including a heated boot room).

Our Catered Chalet Service:
What’s the Food Like? It’s a valid question and we understand why it’s asked as the importance of your evening meal cannot be overestimated. It’s a time for you to sit back, relax and perhaps regale the table with tales of your day’s deeds of snowy adventure.

However, we find that the stories are much more enjoyable over a glass or 3 of fine wine and a lovingly home cooked 3 course dinner. That’s why we take time to create menus that, wherever possible, incorporate only locally sourced and zinging-fresh, ingredients from the quality suppliers that surround us in Portes du Soleil and the French Alps. Our wine is selected from only the best regional suppliers to compliment the cuisine.

From Thai to Tartiflette and Fondue to Fusion we will ensure that all dietary requirements are discussed in advance, met and adhered to. We can guarantee that you won’t be disappointed.

During the summer mountain biking season we offer both the option of Bed and Breakfast or Self Catering. Our summer BBQ’s are becoming quite legendary too!

About Chatel

Winter in Chatel:
The skiing in Chatel is incredible. You can access 650km of piste, 220 lifts and an endless number of fabulous slope-side restaurants and bars.

We invite all our guests to come out on the slopes with us where we can point you in the direction of pistes for all standards. Super Chatel, just 300m from your chalet, is the perfect area for beginners and families with plenty of gentle nursery slopes and stunning panoramic views taking in Mont Blanc. Its snow-park and boarder cross course are worth a visit too.

From the Pre La Joux area you can launch straight into the heart of Chatel which has the best snow making infrastructure in the Portes Du Soleil. This additional snow coverage and its North facing slopes ensure great skiing from December through to April.

For the more adventurous skier Happy Valley & The Donkeys in Chatel offer fun off-piste action – immense fun on a powder day. If you’d like to learn more about off-piste skiing and mountain safety then ask us about our off-piste clinics in conjunction with Ortovox.

When you’ve skied Chatel drop down into Linderet Valley for a coffee or vin chaud before heading up to explore Avoriaz. A wide range of piste and good snow conditions awaits along with one of the best snow parks in the Alps, and, opened in 2008, the Burton Stash. The Stash contains many hidden lines comprising of all natural hits, monster rails, pillow lines, wall rides and cliff drops you’ll be exploring it all day guaranteed.

For those that prefer to carve then the Coupe Du Monde is a must do run. The 80′s World cup downhill offers super fast, exhilarating skiing. However, for those who like to test themselves on steep moguls, the infamous Swiss Wall (or La Chavanette) is the place to go. With a length of 1km, a vertical drop of 331m and an initial inclination of 55 degrees it will challenge all but the very best.

On any decent powder day riders from surrounding resorts on their snowboarding holidays are often to be found in Châtel in the Portes du Soleil. They come for its off-piste playgrounds including the Hidden and Happy Valleys where cliffs, windlips, cornices, powder fields and natural hits a plenty can be found.

Smooth Park in the Super Châtel ski area is perfect for beginners and intermediates to practice hitting interesting and well shaped features while Avoriaz provides bigger boxes and rails to get creative on. We are also just a couple of chairs from The Burton Stash in Linderet and the super park in Le Croset, Switzerland.

Mountainbiking in Chatel:
Does riding endless natural singletrack, mountain biking in Chatel Bike Park or off the beaten track cross country appeal? Do you fancy coming back to a smart mountain bike chalet with bike storage and mountain views for cold beers & BBQs? How about having someone local with MBL & SMBLA qualifications show you where it all is?

If all this sounds good then…

The picturesque resort of Chatel in the heart of the Portes Du Soleil is for you. Its fast becoming one of THE premier destinations for those wanting to mountain bike in the Alps.

With 100s of kilometers of marked trails, 18 down-hill tracks, black & north shore zones, pump tracks and freestyle faces – Chatel is an epic place to ride.
