We loved the apartment which is really in the centre of Chatel and close to the ski lifts. Nine & Tenne have arranged everything for us, from renting skies, skipasses and ski lessons, which was great! We enjoyed our holiday enormously and will definitely come back!!

We had an incredible weekend at the chalet with friends. Every detail was looked after brilliantly. The service was impeccable and the food was outstanding. I would highly recommend Nine and Tenne Chalet to anyone and we can’t wait to come back! It was perfection.
