About the neighbourhood
Châtel is a beautiful village in the French Alps full of spectacular scenery and traditional mountain charm. It’s situated at the end of the picturesque and rural Abondance valley and set between Lake Geneva and Mont-Blanc. Not far from the Swiss border at 1200m above sea level, Châtel has grown over the years from a small farming community to become a world-class ski resort (as well as a very popular summer destination). Despite this, Châtel remains an authentic perfectly preserved mountain village. Although well known by the French, Châtel is a hidden treasure for many others, with an atmosphere unlike anywhere else in the Alps, sitting in the heart of one of the largest ski areas in the world.
Getting around
Chalet Isobel is located with the River Dranse running past at the bottom of the garden, and it's surrounded by the mountains of the beautiful Abondance valley. It's very close to the skiing, ski shops and restaurants of the Linga area of Châtel - which accesses some of the best skiing in the whole of the Portes du Soleil. - Very close to 650km of pistes - Ski back to within 250m from chalet. - 500m walk to main Linga ski lift. - Ski bus stop directly outside chalet. - Vast Portes du Soleil ski area on doorstep.
