100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Stayed as a party of 4 adults for 1 week in ski season
Apartment perfectly placed with the ski bus to the Linga lifts or town/Super Chatel lifts being right at the door.
Loved the sauna and the log burner stove to relax in the evening
Really well equipped kitchen, you could easily cater all meals if you wanted to.
Loads of hanging space which is really important if you've got damp ski gear, and a secure locker for skis to keep them out of the apartment
We thought that 4 adults is the comfortable occupancy rate; although it could sleep more, there isn't really sofa space for more than 4 adults to lounge
Had great communication from Serge. Would recommend a stay in this apartment
A lovely, cosy chalet with everything you need. The mezanine room was a hit with the children with its twinkly ceiling lights and the sauna a hit with the adults! Plenty of storage and the chalet was nice and warm. This was an ideal place to spend Christmas. Very easy access to the slopes or to Châtel centre by free shuttle bus, the bus stop is right outside of the chalet door. Greeted by the owner who made sure we had everything we needed and also visited at the end of the stay. One VERY small suggestion would be to have bedding included in the accommodation price and come as standard instead of by additional request but this is far outweighed by how good everything else is. A great time had by all.
I hope see you again and for next time i'll offer you the beding and a bottle Champagne.
Happy New Year
We enjoyed a superb week in this lovely chalet.
The chalet is in a good location, 10 minutes walk from the village centre, or 2 minutes on the ski bus. Everything in the chalet worked and the outlook is beautiful. We would be delighted to stay again. thank you, Serge!!
Great- Would Highly Recommend
The property is situated in the idea location. The ski bus stops literally outside the chalet door, making it easy to get to the slopes and for trips into town (it takes about 10 minutes to walk into the centre which is convenient as well). Whilst so close to town, with the small farm next door and the views, it feels calm and in the countryside rather than a built up ski resort. The chalet itself is very cosy and well-decorated. The wood burner is brilliant after coming in from the slopes. The bedrooms are all a good size and the mezzanine a proper space.Serge was helpful and responsive to emails- thanks!
A great place to stay
The cottage is a great place to stay with your friends. We were with 7 people and it just all fitted very well. The atmosphere is really romantic. The cottage was also very clean. You can take a walk to the village (5 minutes) for some fresh bread and croissants. In the evening you light up the fireplace and take a sauna if you like. We would recommend this place highly.
The owner Serge is an nice guy and very helpfull.
Seven dutch friends.
You can find the same atmosphere at St Raphael Mediteran see Cote- d'Azur Abritel HomeAway nr 1376960
Beautiful Chalet in great location
We enjoyed Christmas week in this cute, well furnished chalet. We are a family of 5 and had more than enough room (the mezzanine with 2 double beds was great for my son to have his cousin over for a sleepover!). We have stayed in Chatel many times and our favourite area is Bechigne, it's on the bus route to the big Intermarche supermarket and the slopes, but close enough to walk to town.
The chalet is very well equipped (slippers in hall cupboard, board games, dvds) and beautifully decorated if you love French Knick Knacks (which I do!). The kitchen was great, 2 fridges and lots of kitchen equipment such as toaster, kettle, coffee maker, fondue set, plus there were lots of bits left by previous people such as coffee, tea, sugar, salt, pepper, oil. Everything you need as basics for your first few days. We have added to these! There were also basic kitchen needs such as dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, tea towels etc. I brought some things with me so it would have been useful to know this in advance! The bathroom/toilet had soap and toilet roll, also useful!
We rented towels and sheets from Loca Linge, who deliver before you arrive. La Lavandiere in Chatel also offers this service. We enjoyed meals at La Pierriere and Le Refuge (excellent value) and La Poya (special treat, tiny, adult only(?), need to book in advance of stay!). There is a new restaurant/bar at Plain Dranse called Folies des Neiges (sharp right off Pierre Longue chair) fab food, good value, will be great apres ski bar later in season.
I could write more but this is turning into an essay, we really enjoyed our stay and we will definitely be returning to this gorgeous place!
