The chalet offers superb self catering holiday accommodation for 10 people. Chalet Gallois is a traditional chalet and is situated only one mile from the centre of the village with easy access to the Super Châtel ski area, and less than 3/4 mile from the Linga ski area.

A free bus service passes the chalet and there is a bus stop opposite the chalet.

Off road parking for two or three cars is available directly in front of the chalet.

Chalet Gallois is spacious and accommodates 10 people in comfort. The chalet is full of character with a large open living area complete with wood burning stove, chestnut flooring and authentic wooden beams. Martin and Sue have over the last five years undertaken extensive renovation and refurbishment of the chalet to a very high standard with the help of local craftsmen.

The open plan living area includes a large dining table providing a focal point for gathering together and discussion of the day’s events. It also includes a kitchen area with an oven, gas hob, dishwasher, microwave and refrigerator. Comfortable seating is provided in front of the large fireplace.

There are five bedrooms – four with double beds and one with two single beds. One of the bedrooms has a mezzanine with extra sleeping area if required. Bedding and towels are available if required. There is also a cot, highchair and baby gate for our younger guests.

There are two bathrooms with a shower, wash hand basin and toilet, together with a cloakroom. There is also an additional bathroom with a ‘Jacuzzi’ style bath, stone wash hand basin and toilet.

There is an additional shower adjoining the sauna.

In addition the chalet has Wifi, satellite TV, a DVD player, Wii games console and iPod compatible Bose sound system. There is also a table football. Books, games and DVDs are available.

In the basement there is a washing machine and tumble drier. There is ample room in the basement for the storage of ski equipment or bikes.

There are two large patio areas with furniture for al fresco dining. There is a pleasant garden area offering both sun and shade, with a mountain stream running alongside the property.

Martin and Sue have been visiting Châtel with their three children for over 20 years. Initially just in the summer, and then both summer and winter holidays were spent at L’Oustalet, the excellent campsite run by Marie-Jo and Philipe Thoule. Over the years they have fallen in love with the village and it’s surrounding area and five years ago they decided to give up caravanning and purchase a chalet, which has undergone extensive renovation with the help of local craftsmen.
