The Experience

Such a lovely combination of rustic charm and sophistication, with recent renovations blending old wooden walls with newer wood interiors. In the living space are elegant copper chandeliers, comfy seats and a long table with soft blue and grey plaid chairs, just right for convivial meals. A spacious kitchen corner has all you need to cook for a group; for colder nights there’s a big fireplace. Latticework balconies and huge windows encourage you to relax and enjoy the wonderful views of valley and mountains. Two bedrooms (including a family suite) open on to the lower balcony, two to the garden, the fifth is up in the eaves; bathrooms have fabulous funky tiles and big showers or baths. An inside sauna and outdoor hot tub will help ease aching muscles after lots of hiking or mountain biking; you can also try a local water park, go zip wire riding over the valley, or taste local farm cheeses. The chalet is with others a kilometre from the centre of Châtel, an easy walk to restaurants, shops and market. Plenty for smaller guests here too – toys, DVDs, a wooden playhouse in the garden, plus high chair, buggies and cots.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Clare & Iain Galloway

  • Festivals galore with summer cheese fairs, village fetes and celebrations of all things Alpine. The local market takes place every week and local shops sell local produce and crafts.
  • Hiking and biking the extensive trail system lifts the spirits and soothes the soul. Take in the scenery while walking through alpine meadows or the atmospheric forests.
  • Mountain restaurants are an ideal place to admire the view while enjoying hearty mountain cuisine with a cool beer or glass of wine.
  • Splash around the mountain lakes where beaches provide perfect picnic spots and the waters invite you to paddle and swim.
  • Family activities to keep all ages entertained - from horse riding to paragliding and tennis to tree adventure zones there is something new for every day.
  • Châtel is a traditional Savoyard town that has retained all the French charm while developing into a bustling resort. Alpine architecture, local cheese and wine production and a lively community gives a delightful atmosphere year round.
