Situated at the end of the picturesque and rural Abondance valley and set between Lake Geneva and the Mont-Blanc, Chatel is just a stone's throw from the Swiss border.
Not surprisingly it is the most Swiss-like of all the French resorts and is an authentic mountain village, whose combination of tradition and modernism welcomes you in an exceptional setting.
At the end of a busy day Chatel’s lively streets offer everyone the chance to enjoy themselves. Shops, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, cinemas and bowling alley, as well as an ice rink, indoor pool and regular entertainment.
There are 38 working farms which contribute to the village’s economic development and make Châtel an authentic mountain village, which has gradually expanded while still respecting the environment. The hotels, residences and large wood and stone chalets have been built in complete harmony with the mountain style.
There are 850km of marked trails and more than 24 lifts open all summer long so the Portes du Soleil area offers a host of fun outdoor activities.
