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!
