Chalets in the Portes du Soleil

 

The Portes du Soleil is the largest ski area in Europe located between Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc.  There are 12 interlinked resorts in the Portes du Soleil with over 650km of pistes.

Top 5 reasons to ski in the Portes du Soleil:

The Portes du Soleil is still unknown by many British holiday makers because there are no major tour operators based in the area.  As such the area has maintained it’s Savoyard charm and is not overrun with English holiday makers.

If you are looking for chalet accommodation in the Portes du Soleil then you will find the best choices in the French resorts of Les Gets, Chatel and Morzine.  There are a few chalets run by VIP Ski in Avoriaz, however you will find the majority of accommodation to be self-catered apartments.  The Swiss resorts such as Champery, Torgon and Morgins generally cater for the European market with several hotels and apartment buildings, but not many choices for catered ski chalets.

Les Gets, Chatel and Morzine has a fantastic array of owner operated ski chalets either on a catered or self-catered basis.  On the whole the accommodation in the Portes du Soleil is very reasonable with prices much lower that the Trois Valley and the Espace Killy.    The prices of ski chalets in the Portes du Soleil can vary enormously depending on the size, location, quality and service levels.

Self-catered chalets from £2500 – £8000 for the whole chalet.

Catered chalets from £500 – £2500 per person.

Here are a few questions to bear in mind when booking your ski chalet:

We have been operating luxury ski chalets in the Portes du Soleil for many years and we find every group is slightly different thus requiring different criteria from their holiday accommodation.  For example, if you’re a group of young professionals looking for a good ski resort with plenty of nightlife I would recommend Morzine.  If you are skiing with very small children then Les Gets is a good choice.  If you want a super luxury chalet then I would recommend Chaletneuf du Tenne, if you are looking for a great value chalet with hot-tub then Belle Vache is a great choice.  With a small amount of Google research it should be very easy to find the perfect chalet for your group in the Portes du Soleil.

At Nine & Tenne we have an exclusive collection of chalets in Chatel which sits in the heart of the Portes du Soleil.  Here are some of our favourites.

We have just returned from a long weekend staying at Maison Blanche et Verte in Chatel. Can't recommend it enough! Perfect chalet for 6 couples - 6 equal size bedrooms, high end design, spacious living areas, small pool and sauna. The Nine & Tenne service was brilliant - Paddy was very helpful throughout the booking process, organised restaurants, organised ski hire dropped to the chalet. All very efficient. Gaz our chef was great, we enjoyed three wonderful dinners and breakfast was also spot on. Holly and Jess our hosts couldn't do enough and the mini bus pick-up service worked brilliantly even when the group of 12 were coming back at different times. Hope to return to Chatel - overall a great ski region!

Big thank you to Paddy and our hosts Becks and Joe for a fantastic week. The service was outstanding and so lovely to have hosts who made you feel like the chalet was your home. We have stayed in many catered chalets and have always been very happy (we do our research!) but this was the best service to date. Joe and Becks went out of their way to ensure the menu met all our needs and were great fun to be around. Eli, our driver, was brilliant - always happy and made us laugh. He even helped put the kids boots on every morning! The location is really good - easy walk into town and several options for ski lifts in the morning. We would recommend skiing in Switzerland during peak times as you can still experience pretty empty slopes! Great value for money
