From the Owner

We bought our first chalet in Chatel in 2004. Chatel and the Portes du Soleil offers everything. Not only a superb place to live but one of the best locations for both winter and summer holidays in the world.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Geneva at 75 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Chatel at 400 Metres Nearest Golf : Loy at 600 Metres Nearest Train : Aigle at 30 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Chatel at 400 Metres Nearest Ski : Super Chatel at 500 Metres Nearest Beach : Thonon Plage at 30 Kilometres Car: not necessary


The chalet is around a 35 minute drive from the lakeside town of Evian with beautiful marinas and beaches. You will also find Thonon and Yvoire and on the Swiss side of the lake Montreux and Lausanne all of which surround Lake Geneva.


The quickest way to the Alps is flying and transfers from Geneva take around 90 minutes. Transfers are included in the winter and are available at an additional cost in the summer. We do recommend having a car for the duration of your summer holiday. You can self drive or if you still prefer to fly you should hire a car from Geneva airport. There are so many places of interest you will want to visit and activities close by having a car will give you the flexibility you need.

Further Details:


There are more than 65km of footpaths in and around Chatel and over 300km of well marked trekking routes in the Portes Du Soleil. From a ramble around the Lac de Vonnes, a themed trail on the Morclan or a visit to the Chatel meadows tasting local farm produce along the way there is something to suit everyone.

Mountain biking.

There are over 24 lifts open in the summer giving access to 580km of marked cycle tracks in the Portes Du Soleil, this really is prime mountain biking country. There are 9 downhill tracks, and trial and biker cross circuits. For novice off road cyclists there are many great tracks to build your confidence and all mountain bikes can be hired locally.

White Water rafting.

White water rafting is done on the river Dranse. A team of well organised and professional instructors will ensure that you have a safe but thrilling day out. While you are here you can also try canyoning, white water swimming, canoeing and paragliding.


This is unique to Chatel, there are 2 fantasticable lines stretching over Plaine Dranse. Open every day from March this is truly and incredible experience where you will reach speeds of up to 100 kmh.

Horse riding.

If you wish to see the mountains on horse back there are stables near by. Riding trips can be pre-booked and are supervised by experienced instructors.
