Skiing for all levels in the Portes de Soleil

English speaking ski school, great snow parks great apres with a Folie douce in Avoriaz

Our catered chalet is located in the Portes de Soleil France in one of the largest and best linked ski and snowboarding areas in Europe. With twelve resorts in two countries and 650km of pistes the Portes du Soleil offers an unrivalled variety of  superb skiing and snowboarding at all levels.

There is plenty of space, wide slopes for beginners, cruising runs with the opportunity to travel long distances through different resorts and exciting and challenging off-piste skiing for the more advanced skiers. It caters well for both family groups with children of all ages through to advanced thrill seekers. The resorts also enable skiers and boarders to have fun together with snow parks and ski pistes in close proximity.

The village of Chatel is perfectly situated in a central location in the fantastic alpine mountains on the main Portes du Soleil circuit. It is a wonderful alpine ski area and holiday resort that has retained its traditional Savoie charm, not a high rise in site!

The slopes around La Chapelle d’Abondance and Chatel offer a mix of open and wooded slopes, for all ages and abilities. With easy access to Avoriaz, Morzine, Les Gets and the beautiful, tranquil Swiss side of the Portes du Soleil ski area, it is an extremely convenient location. Plus we also provide a chauffeur service to and from the slopes!

Winter activities not only include skiing and snowboarding but also cross country skiing, snow shoeing, ice skating, and much more! The village centre of Chatel also offers great shopping, fantastic produce and of course an array of lively bars for après-ski.
