Chalet Pascal is furnished and equipped to a very high standard and is 90 minutes from Geneva. The main lifts at Linga are a 3 minute walk and give you easy access to the Portes du Soleil ski area, which with 650km of piste, incorporates 14 resorts including Chatel, Avoriaz and Morzine.
Chris and Sally Francis live in the Cotswolds with two sons. We first skied in the Chatel area back in 1985 and have skied in many other resorts since but have always found ourselves returning to the Portes du Soleil.
Sally Francis purchased this chalet in 2013
We finally bought our own chalet....why? because, from our experience of many European ski areas the Portes du Soleil provides the best mix of fantastic skiing, quality mountain restaurants, value for money and truly friendly locals. And, not only does it provide winter fun, but has a wealth of activities for the summer. The Chatel valley is still very much a working mountain community; it is surprising to see the cows in the barns during the ski season and then wonderful to see them grazing on the pastureland during the summer months!
It's approximately 90mins to Geneva airport which allows for weekend visits and longer holidays. It is a comfortable 8 hour drive from Calais.
Thank you so much for enabling us to rent your fabulous chalet. It was well equipped, superbly comfortable and very accommodating for our group of 6 of mixed ages. Totally exceeded our expectations. Thank you!
Great weather and we survived the bike park and the Fantasticable!
Chalet Pascal is a wonderful family winter chalet! Perfectly situated in the Linga area of Chatel, it gives straight entrance for the whole Portes du Soleil ski area.
The bed- and bathrooms are clean and comfortable. Kitchen is fully equipped.
We enjoyed our stay with 2 families (children from 9 - 15 yrs) so much, that we already booked for next year!
If you are looking for a great self-catering chalet with easy access to the huge Portes du Soleil ski area, look no further. Chalet Pascal is the best chalet we've ever stayed in - and we've tried loads in different French resorts. What makes it great? The facilities and the location. Spacious, very comfortable and extremely well-kitted out. Wonderful bedrooms. spacious lounge and, most importantly, plenty of shower space and loos! The extra bunk room and shower room, which means that up to 10 can be accommodated, makes it really flexible. What luxury - a drying room with boot warmers. No lines of boots in the entrance, or cold boots in the morning and damp jackets. We are self-caterers and often we've stayed in places that pay lip-service to this, with poor equipment. Chalet Pascal is fully equipped with all that is needed to prepare and enjoy a great meal after a days's skiing. But be aware, this is not in an area where there is a great choice of restaurants to walk to, so if you want to go out it's a limited local choice or a car ride into the centre of Chatel. And a car is needed to get to the supermarket, which closes at 7 p.m. so you need to plan shopping trips. Location within easy walking to the lifts is great. We've stayed in other places in Chatel before and rather ignored La Linga lift which is close to Chalet Pascal, heading further up the valley by car or on the bus. But at Chalet Pascal, just walk down to La Linga lift, which never proved busy, and you're away. Added bonus is that the runs home down to this lift are really good, much better than most "'home runs". If you want to try other lift stations, the resort buses are very efficient and frequent.
Highly recommended. We'll be back.
We have been skiing with our now grown up children since they were three year olds. So we all knew what we wanted - we wanted somewhere that was comfortable, roomy and convenient for lifts. Chalet Pascal offered much more with its large sitting room and big cosy sofas, wonderful underfloor heating and a view of the Linga lift just minutes away. We all loved the ski room and boot warmers - a great space to get togged up and ready to go in the morning. Plus a closed garage to keep the snow off the car. I loved the fully equipped kitchen where I could cook a hearty supper for us all (we all took turns!). Lovely bedrooms with great views, spotlessly clean throughout and very good value. We will definitely return.
The chalet is about 45 mins from Lake Geneva. There are also wonderful natural spring baths at Val d'Ille.
The chalet is 90 mins from Geneva airport where there are numerous car hire companies. Tranfer companies: Magic Transfers or Professional Transfers will take you to the door of the chalet. There is also a train from Geneva airport directly to Aigle (south east of Lake Geneva). Aigle is about a 30 min drive from the chalet.
As with all roads in the Alps their condition varies according to the weather and at certain times you may need winter tyres and/or chains to get up to the chalet.
The chalet is in Linga (Chatel) where there is a range of ski hire shops, bars, restaurants and a boulangerie within easy walking distance. The large supermarket is about 2 miles away.
The centre of Chatel is a 2 minute drive (or bus) and has a larger selection of shops, restaurants and banks etc.
IN THE WINTER: in addition to alpine skiing, there are several other activities including: Nordic skiing, snow shoe walking, husky sledging rides and natural hot spring baths.
CHATEL IN THE SUMMER:
The Portes du Soleil is the centre for mountain biking. It is easy to hire bikes - we have even managed to find a shop that rents out bikes with batteries! The mountain lifts are open which allows easy access to some of the more picturesque areas and there are lots of lovely walking trails.
Chatel is only about half an hour from Lake Geneva and there is a championship golf course at Evian. There is a hot springs pool at Val d’Illez, rafting on the River Dranse, horse-riding, tennis and if you enjoy a thrill you can always try the Fantasticable at Plane Dranse!
