It is right on the huge Portes du Soleil circuit, very close to the Swiss border. It has two separate sectors of slopes, one linked to its French neighbour - high, purpose-built Avoriaz - and the other linked to two resorts in Switzerland: Morgins (which is on the Portes du Soleil circuit) and Torgon (which is not on the circuit). A few kilometres down the valley is rustic La Chapelle-d'Abondance, with lifts into the Torgon slopes. Recent upgrades linking its two slopes by chairlifts rather than just buses alongside a new blue piste down to those lifts from the Super-Chatel sector.

Food/Restaurants info

When you think of a ski holiday of course the first thing that comes to mind is beautiful fresh white snow, sunshine, whizzing around on freshly groomed pistes… heaven!  And for many of us the next exciting thought is the amazing mountain food – consisting of mainly…. cheese, cheese and more cheese! There’s a huge choice of restaurants in Chatel, both on and off the slopes, and happily we’ve spent many years researching all establishments to ensure they are up to scratch for our clients.

Chez Crepy -  quick ‘self service’ eatery and a more refined and relaxed restaurant, which never fails to impress.

La Folie Des Neiges - There are daily rotisserie meat specials here – a slow cooked pork which is really good, and a yummy roast chicken as well as a broad menu of other dishes and nice salads. 


Drinks/Bars info

Although not widely known as a place for wild nights, the village is home to half-a-dozen lively pubs and plenty of more relaxed night spots too.

Le Avalanche - Large chalet style pub, a favourite with the seasonaires. Live music, DJ's, themed party nights, Sky Sports showing the weeks top sports events and full English breakfast. Like a good olde English pub in permanent party mode.

Nazca Bar A recent refurbished bar into a modern, lounge style. Lots of comfy sofas and a relaxed atmosphere.
Lion D'Or - Also known as the Crazy Lion, it has an apres ski happy hour each evening with is pretty crazy due to half price drinks / loud euro-pop and lots of Dutch.
Le Sloopy's - When everywhere else is closing Sloopy's is just opening its doors and doesn't close again til 6am. For those who just can't say no!!

Summer info

Enjoy summer in the Alps where the temperatures can be as hot as the Mediterranean. The Alps offer more than you could ever imagine in the summer months. The sights to see and the activities to explore are for every one of all ages whether you are a thrill seeker who thrives on the adrenalin of mountain biking, white water rafting etc, or a person who enjoys a more relaxed break, taking in mountain walks, reading, painting the fantastic scenery.
