The kitchen has all the amenities one would expect, including a large fridge-freezer, Nespresso machine as well as raclette and fondue. The kitchen is open plan onto the living room where there is a large 12-seater table, a wood fire, sofas and chairs, a cocktail bar and a terrace with views of Châtel and the mountains. There is also a TV room, sauna, shower and another bathroom on this floor. A Sonos sound system is installed throughout the chalet. Outside there are gardens on both sides of the chalet. There is a picnic table on the east side which enjoys the morning and lunchtime sunshine. On the west side the garden includes a hot tub, a garden dining table seating 8-10 and a gas barbecue. Younger children will enjoy playing the the little mazot, a replica alpine chalet playhouse. There is parking for at least four cars. More

About the neighbourhood
The centre of the bustling village of Châtel is a two minute shuttle bus ride or pleasant stroll from the chalet, with a tempting selection of bars, shops and restaurants. La Grange au Merle is located in a quiet residential area overlooking the village. Mountain biking and walking are very popular with many marked trails for each, a visit to the tourist office website is testament to the huge variety of activities on offer... zip wires, tree ropes, water sports, tennis, bob-luge to name but a few. In the winter the resort is a hive of winter sports activity with multiple lifts and sectors providing direct access to the vast Portes du Soleil, stretching across France and Switzerland.
Getting around
The area is very popular for walking and cycling (both on road and mountain bikes) and you can depart on enjoyable excursions on foot or bike directly from the chalet. A car is very convenient in enabling you to get around the area, whether to shops, mountains, picnics, the beach, or any of the huge number of other activities!
