About Adam Heath
We are two brothers and our families who live in the UK but have recently bought this property, previously owned and listed by Alpine Quests. This is our second season renting this property , but have considerable experience of renting property previously and have a good knowledge of the Portes du Soleil ski area.
Adam Heath purchased this Chalet in 2017
Why Adam Heath chose Châtel
It is beautiful from the outside and from inside. It is very reasonably priced for the first season, and will still be reasonable thereafter. Frangins is close to restaurants, bars, the village centre, ski lifts and the free navette, which can take you further, stops at the top of our garden.

Fantastic chalet. Would definitely recommend it .
The chalet was fantastic in all ways. Very clean and well equipped. The chalet was furnished very tastefully and was very welcoming and homely. We were a group of 16 made up of 4 families and the layout of the chalet worked very well. We ate in most evenings, the kitchen was large and well equipped which made it easy to cater for 16 people. The jacuzzi was enjoyed by all. The boot/ski room was well layed out which made it easy in the mornings when all 16 of us were putting on our boots. The ski bus is only a very small walk away and made it easy getting to all the ski lifts from the Chalet. We were welcomed on arrival by a very nice couple who showed us around and explained the workings of the chalet. Communication with the owner was also extremely good prior to our visit. Would definitely go back.
Fabulous chalet & skiing the Portes du Soleil
Just had an amazing week at Chalet Les Frangins. Great location, spacious, exceptional high quality but homely fixtures & fittings. The kitchen, as others have said, had everything needed to cater for a large group.
We were greeted by Nick & Sharron, who gave us a tour & instructions on how to use the appliances etc. The fire was set and all rooms were beautifully presented.
Skihire2u delivered & fitted all skis & boots as the group assembled and Frances & Glen @Alpine Quests facilitated the lift passes & transfers from GVA. It was all so easy thanks to their hard work.
Valley views, pool table, spa, sauna, Alexa and plenty of spectacular skiing in all directions!
Thank you Adam for sharing this gem of a chalet with us. We highly recommend it to others & hope to be back soon.
The Bell/Hopper families
Thanks so much for that review - We really appreciate it and are so pleased you like it. Hope to have you again sometime.
Great house. Lots of room for different families traveling together. Comfortable and well appointed.
We were 4 families traveling together. The bedrooms were comfortable and private. Plenty of shared living space. Large kitchen with enough equipment for us to cook in every night. The teenagers especially enjoyed the game room at night. Friendly and helpfulness hosts and property manager. Chatel is beautiful with great outdoor activities in the summer.
Thank you so much for the review Daphna. You were great guests and my manager said how lovely you had been. Really pleased you enjoyed your vacation.
Perfect Property and Location for our Family Summer Holiday in the Beautiful Mountains
The chalet was equipped to a very high standard and beautifully furnished, with everything we could need for our holiday. We had fantastic weather, so were able to make the most of the outside spaces and the best mountain views. The hot-tub was a perfectly placed to make the most of the views.
There were lots of things to do in the area, which kept everybody happy, from our two young daughters, to the mother-in-law, in fact we didn’t get around to do all we’d planned. We did Fantasticable, mountain toboggan, pony riding, goat village, water-park at Evian and swam in Lake Geneva, to name a few. There were plenty of shops and restaurants to choose from within walking distance of the chalet, making life very easy when there is a mixture of generations to cater for.
We all had a fantastic time, especially our eldest daughter, who upon leaving asked when we could come back again.
Thank you so much for those kind words. So pleased you had so much fun. We like it too.
Lovely chalet, well situated and stunning views.
We had a wonderful holiday in this well appointed chalet. The beds were very comfortable with fine linen and luxurious towels. Everything had been beautifully thought through with great decoration, lots of wood for the fire, comfy sofas and even plenty of plug adaptors! The kitchen was well equipped to cater for our two families,including girlfriends - 16 in all (though a second dish washer would have given extra luxury, and the dining table seats 14). The sauna and hot tub were much enjoyed by us all. The two bus stops are within easy walking distance though the free buses are not quite as frequent as they say they are. The skiing was brilliant with fresh snow even in April, and plenty of sunshine too. We loved sitting on the balcony enjoying the stunning views in the evening sun. We would love to return!
Fantastic chalet in a fantastic location
Prefect holiday from start to finish. Wonderfully easy start with SkiHire2U arriving at the chalet on the first evening to fit the kit that we had ordered, they also collected the kit from the excellent boot room (boot heaters, plenty of space on benches for all of us etc) after we left!
The Chalet itself manages to be both huge & cosy, great open plan living room with a roaring fire, huge dining table, great kitchen, amazing views from balcony and bedroom plus a sauna and hot tub for easing aches!
Great skiing around Plaine Dranse, loads of friendly Blues and some not unfriendly Reds though the are plenty of 'dark' Reds and more for the more adventurous. Further afield, Avoriaz, Morzine and even Switzerland easily accessible, with the ski parks @ Super Chatel definitely worth a visit. We had a couple of brilliant instructors/ guides, booked via the chalet info, catering both for a couple of beginners and some fearless teenagers!
We ate a couple of times on the mountain (though the chalet is easily close enough to head back for lunch), Chez Crepy at Plaine Dranse if definitely worth a lunch visit though Chez Babeth is a cute little lodge I liked, pretty much out of sight behind Crepy but worth finding as great little hideaway for a vin chaud!
In Chatel, restaurants Bistro M, La Poya, Genepi all excellent. La Poya not cheap but amazing food and for a group the Raclette @ Cafe Zeph should also be near the top of your 'to do' list.
Avalanche and Nasca are both fun bars for drinks with all the above an easy walk from the chalet.
Whilst HomeAway states we are 2.1km from the centre of Chatel, we are only 800 metres.
