Chalet Chatelet

Châtel - Abondance, Portes du Soleil, France: catered, sleeps 6/8 Chalet Châtelet is a unique, eco-chalet in an incredibly romantic setting with spectacular views

Chalet Chatelet

Chalet Chatelet is a classic whole log cabin built with natural materials set in a beautiful location with spectacular mountain views. If you don’t mind being away from the hustle and bustle, then we are perfect for you. Set off the beaten track we are still easily accessible to all resorts in the Portes du Soleil.

Guests at the chalet are invited to make use of the large living and entertainment area, tea/coffee-making facilities and balcony. Our soap stone Tulikivi log burner stove at the heart of the chalet is lit throughout the winter, heating all guest areas 24/7.

The interior décor is an eclectic mix of antique period furniture with modern pieces thrown in for good measure. Much like the chalet itself, it is charming but finished with a stylish flair.

Our chef and hostess, Suzie, has a talent for making the simplest of family favourites into mouth watering culinary feasts. Breakfasts are a generous affair with all the trimmings; freshly baked patisseries, bread, homemade granola, jams, fruit salad and local cheeses. An afternoon cake will greet you at tea time, and by 8pm you’ll be salivating at the kitchen door, awaiting the delicious three course dinner prepared for you and complementary wine on offer. Suzie likes to cook with seasonal, organic produce, and sources ingredients locally whenever possible.

All in all, we aim to make you will feel well fed, well rested and ready to hit the slopes every day.


We can accommodate up to 8 guests in the following rooms:

Master Bedroom en suite
Double Bedroom en suite
Triple Bedroom with adjoining bathroom
Single Bed Annexe with adjoining shower

There is a state of the art home cinema with SKY+ in the living area and broadband Wifi throughout the chalet.

Before you start your day on the mountain, you can enjoy a scrumptious breakfast with a selection of homemade granola, muffins and jams, local hams and cold meats, yoghurts and Abondance cheese. To warm you up on a cold winter morning we offer in addition something hot, such as scrambled eggs and smoked salmon, eggs benedict or pancakes. 

You return to homemade teatime cakes and biscuits followed by gourmet evening meals served with specially selected wines.

Snacks and hot drinks are always available. 


We pride ourselves in giving an excellent personal service, allowing for the individual needs of each guest.

During the winter season we can assist you with ski equipment hire, ski passes, lessons, airport transfers as well as arranging other snow activities like ski-joering or husky sledding. Because of the position of the chalet, all French Portes du Soleil ski resorts are within 5-30 minutes giving the ambitious skier plenty of scope but the chalet is also close to quiet family areas for beginners or fresh powder for the adventurous. 

During the rest of the year we are happy to help you book activities or find magnificent walks or suggest a perfect view to paint or photograph. We will look up boat timetables for your trips on Lake Geneva or make an appointment for you to be pampered at one of the local spas.

In fact whenever you come, we will do all that we can to give you an amazing holiday.
