A newly renovated traditional farmhouse, La Grange au Merle by Clarian Chalets offers a professionally staffed, luxurious ski chalet for up to 12 adult guests (15 including children) in Châtel, one of the best kept secrets of the huge Portes du Soleil ski area.

Gourmet food and wine, family centred childcare and in-resort transport are just the start of our services.

Relax in the sauna or outdoor hot-tub, put your feet up by the lovely warm fire or chat with friends by the cocktail bar. You can also lounge outside on one of the terraces and admire the views over the valley with the benefit of all day sunshine.

Children can make the most of the little kids' snug in the mezzanine, next to the cosy library. For movies and games pull the great barn door closed over the TV room and enjoy movies on the large screen.

We booked La Grange as a place for extended family to meet for a summer holiday. The chalet has been beautifully renovated and is really well appointed.

A real luxury ski experience for me and my family - first time we have stayed in a catered chalet and we are converts! - fantastic food, delicious and hearty breakfast and a too-inviting afternoon tea awaiting after a day's skiing.
