Situated in Petit Chatel, which is the sunniest and quietest part of Chatel, close to the Barbossine ski lift and close to free shuttle buses around the resort, this one bedroom apartment has a double bedroom, bunk beds, living room with kitchenette and dining table, balcony, bathroom with shower/bath, separate WC, electric radiator heating, ski locker, and private parking. The apartment is located on the second floor and there is a lift and stairs for access. The apartment faces due East for morning sunshine, and cooler summer afternoons, with views over towards Super Chatel. Chatel is the most Swiss of the French Alps ski resorts, being minutes from Switzerland, and is pretty in a way that many of the other purpose built resorts are not. It is also close to Geneva Airport, and has the huge advantage of being connected to the largest ski region in Europe, the Portes du Soleil. It is possible to ski on over 650kms of pistes between various French and Swiss ski resorts including Morzine, Les Gets, Champery, Morgins, and Avoriaz.. In the village you will find everything you need:- Doctors, chemist, infirmary, masseurs-physiotherapists, dentists, optician, banks, taxis, garages, petrol station, car hire, linen hire, TV hire, food shops, sports shops, clothes shops, craft shops, gift shops, souvenir shops, 2 cinemas, bowling, French ski school, British ski school. In the winter and summer seasons, there are free buses that run regularly through the village (and stopping close to the flat), serving the various piste access points. The service also runs in the evening. However most guests use their cars which is much easier. In Summer you can relax in the fresh mountain air or partake in some of the many activities that are available in the area such as walking, climbing, mountain biking, horseback riding, hydrospeed and white water rafting, canyoning, canoeing, fishing, swimming in one of the three pools in Chatel, archery, tennis, French bowls, golf, mini-golf, rollerblading, trampolining, bobsled, 'devalkart' (gravity karting or Devil Karting) and 'Fantasticable' (a unique cable ride between two mountain peaks). The beautiful scenery makes the entire area is a haven for walkers and mountain bikers. With over 200km of marked paths covering forests and high pastures, and more than 50 peaks to climb in a region stretching from Lake Geneva to Mt Blanc you will not be short of new places to visit. Maps of the local footpaths are available from the Tourist Office. They also have a list of qualified guides able to help you explore the spectacular mountains and see the best of the local wildlife. Chatel is also a great touring location being just 5 minutes from the Swiss border - from there you can descend to the Valais, and explore the amazing resorts such as Zermatt and Saas Fee for a day trip. Also possible for the day is a trip through the Grand St Bernard tunnel to the Aosta valley in Italy. Lake Geneva is very accessible either at Evian, Thonon and Yvoire in France or Montreux, Vevey and Lausanne in Switzerland. More

About the neighbourhood
Chatel is the most Swiss of the French mountain resorts, with beautiful mountain chalets and farms typical of the Abondance valley. It is as lively as you want it to be - in the village are all the amenities one could wish for, including banks, restaurants, Intermarche supermarket, swimming pools, tennis courts, mountain bike and walking trails, winter ski lifts, summer chair lifts, nightclubs, bars, doctors and dentists, cinemas, bowling, free shuttle buses and all kinds of gift and sports shops. However the apartment is located in Petit Chatel, 1.5kms outside the centre and a quick free bus ride into the centre. Petit Chatel is the sunniest part of Chatel - much of the resort becomes shaded in the winter afternoons, but the sun carries on all day in Petit Chatel which is a bonus. It ...
Getting around
There are free buses in the winter and summer seasons, but by far the best solution is to bring and use your car.
