About the property

Catered Chalet Lac de Vonnes

Note: There has been some confusion, so in order not to waste your time, please can I highlight the following....PRICE IS AN INDICATOR AND PER PERSON PER WEEK. Please enquire direct for exact costings. Some self catering weeks are available in the Summer, but we specialise in CATERED/Demi Pension chalet holidays. Thank you

Located centrally in the village with easy access to the ski lifts, this luxury chalet with continual 5* Tripadvisor ratings is a fantastic ski chalet to stay at

We at Chalet Lac de Vonnes prides ourselves on high standards of service and ensuring you have the ingredients for a great holiday. Our beautiful and charming 4 bedroom chalet has all the modern facilities you expect and laced in rustique charm and character with vaulted ceilings and stunning views through the floor to ceiling windows for the ultimate panoramic views. The large open log fire and luscious soft furnishings are the perfect place to enjoy a glass of great bottled wines which we provide. The food is delicious, the ambiance we create divine and then of course the enjoyment of the Hot tub overlooking the mountains. And to tell everyone about it, of course we have free wi-fi.

Free transfers from Geneva airport only 80mins away in our private 8 seater minibus. Welcomed at the chalet with Bubbly and nibbles, you will be handed your ski passes and any details of arrangements with regard to ski lessons and child care. Whisked off to the ski shop for a very personal boot and ski fitting, we will then bring back all your equipment, so you can enjoy the beautiful village and their bars ;-) A sumptuous dinner awaits you on your return, preceded by drinks and canapes by the open log fire in comfy soft furnishings. We are sure by now you would have noticed the amazing views through the floor to ceiling windows, panorama second to none. Your dinner is freshly prepared and lovingly served....our cooks have vast experience and the standard we achieve has been above expectation. The wine we serve each evening is quality bottled wine, very drinkable and plentiful. A local cheese board on some evenings with details of the origins of the cheeses is also served. Whilst some think they will go out most evenings, most actually stay in, relax in the comfy furnishings with their friends and family and enjoy the ambiance along with some more wine... In the morning a hearty breakfast awaits setting you up for the day. Either walk out to the piste or we will take you to other departure points such as Linga or Pre Le Joux in our private minibus 5-10 mins away. For those competent skiers we also enjoying accompanying you on some days around the area to show you some of the best bits and restaurants. Again after a great day, we can collect you or you can ski back to the chalet where a freshly baked cake, tea and coffee await you. Hot Tub or Sledging in the area to thr rear of the chalet is now your only dilemma....or perhaps apres ski in the village just a short walk away! Our Trip Advisor ratings and reviews are our corroboration and your comfort that we care and will help you have a great holiday.....

About Darren Parker

My name is Darren and accompanied by Heinz the very well known and thought of Alpine breaks dog. I am the owner of the business and attention to detail is paramount. I have been living here for 12 years and love the mountains and all it has to offer both winter and summer. I take great pride in the business that I have established here and continual 5* Tripadvisor ratings corroborate this.

I am an energetic and good fun person with an ambition to deliver the perfect holiday for everyone who stays.

Love meeting new people and have a great reputation hence the vast amount of repeat custom each year.

Thank you for your time,

Darren (ooops...sorry)

Darren Parker purchased this chalet in 2004

Why Darren Parker chose Portes du Soleil area

Chalet Lac de Vonnes is unique, built back in 1973. With its high vaulted ceilings in the lounge and the amazing panoramic views, the cosy warm feel created by the log fire, you are in a perfect setting to enjoy yourself.

Chatel is different to many other resorts as it still retains it's French traditions. The people are lovely and always in a festival happy mood and the small ex-pat community have tried to fit in with this rather than segregate themselves.

What makes this chalet unique

Perfect location opposite Lake Vonnes which is only a 5 mins walk into the village.

With the new Gabelou and Portes du Soleil lift by the Lake, it is so easy to escape or get back to the chalet.

Also possible to ski back to the chalet as well as ski out only after a short walk. There are new lifts linking Super Chatel and Linga which are within a stones throw of the chalet and have made our location enviable in the village.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a quick note to say a big thank you for a really great week in Chatel. Thank you for all the extra's and the smiles - it makes a big difference to any holiday. The boys had such a wonderful week and have been thoroughly exhausted since we got back, although Raffi has talked non-stop about his 'ski ski'. It's hard to explain to a 2 yr old that you need to live in the mountains to get snow and ski!

A big thanks to Abbie and Alice, who looked after us so well in the chalet - your patience with the mess and chaos that little children bring was much appreciated. Despite being rather poorly mid week, I feel more refreshed coming home, the break was clearly needed.
