Our family group recently stayed in 2 rooms at the Fleur De Neige Chatel. My daughters party included a baby staying in suite 43 on the 2nd floor. The baby equipment and fresh baby food were superb and the space extremely accomodating of ski and baby luggage.
Our refurbished room was on the top floor 53 and again it was of lovely quality and comfort. Both rooms were extremely spacious with the most outstanding views of the valley below and aside the hotel down towards the Village. Each refurbished room was in a simple chic style with pastel grey colours , matching curtains, fur throws and quality bedding making for a very comfortable sleep. The floors and wardrobes were light oak with panelled beams. Rooms had either a bath or shower room and in 43 a seperate wardrobe area and toilet. My daugters room even had a lovely view from the shower as well as the 2 big windows and balconies which could be enjoyed from the bed.
The free, Vonnes ski bus stop I is right next to the hotel which will take you to the centre, where you either have a short walk to the Super Chatel lift or to pick up another bus A to the pres La Jour lift Avoriaz, bus c Petit Chatel or the Linger lifts.We have stayed at Chatel previously in a hotel now closed on the bus route to Avoriaz which was a little more onveneient for skiing however often the bus was aready packed with skiers so all in all our outside bus stop was more convenient.
The manager offererd helpful responsive advice prior to our stay and arranged ski passes for us at a discount. The ski locker room with heated racks were a bonus. We also booked the local child nursery Les Mouflets near the centre of Chatel and the childcare here was excellent and our baby happy and well cared for.
We took the HB hotel option with a set 4 course evening meal and continental breakfast. Both meals were extremely ample , lovely quality croissants, breads, jams, cheese deli meats, cerials, yogurts, coffee, juices for breakfast. The evening meal consisted of a chef taster, salad or entree, main course, cheese selection and sweet.If there was soething that you wanted to change you could change if needed. We however liked every morsel we were served including the baby food made fresh every day. As others have commented, the cheese selection was second to none.The local red and white wines at the lower price tag of 14 and 18 euros were extremely palitable and although we deviated to more expensive choices we returned to the local and excellent priced wines.
A cosy lounge with the fireplace was somewhat under used considering the outstanding views and cozy ambience.The pool and the Jacuzzi were also a very nice bonus and we enjoyed taking our grand daughter in the wellness suite.
The best thing about this hotel overall was the quiet simple style and the quality of the comfortable beds and bedrooms with outstanding views. The pleasant staff compliment this all-together excellent hotel.It was a fair walk to the centre up hill in ski boots hence the bus stop being quite conveneient.We would not hesitate to reccomend this hotel and to return to lovely Chatel.
