Chatel Village – Portes du Soleil.
Sitting alongside traditional farming roots, there is the largest “internationally linked” ski resort in Europe – all 650km of the Portes du Soleil. If you are looking for a traditional Savoyard town, then Chatel is the place for you to choose to stay.
A winter or summer holiday in Chatel allows you to sample endless local produce at the weekly farmers market, indulge in the local Abondance cheese and cheese recipes, and also tuck in to the traditional dried sausages!
Chatel is nestled at the high end of the Abondance Valley and so enjoys magnificent scenery all around – including several mountains that dominate the area – including Mont de Grange, Les Cornettes and the Dents du Midi.
Chatel is located only 1hr30 mins from Geneva in the French Alps. Chatel is one of the easiest resorts to get to from Geneva International Airport. Geneva is well serviced by traditional and low cost airlines including Swiss, BA and EasyJet.
