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.

Chaletneuf du Tenne

Is our flagship chalet situated at the highest point in the village with amazing views and the chance to ski back to the door from the Super Chatel pistes.  This stylish and luxurious chalet has 4 large bedroom suites, including 2 family rooms with kids sleeping dens.  The chalet also features open plan living and dining areas, separate TV room, and beautiful indoor heated pool on the lower ground floor.

Absolutely fantastic week. The chalet was gorgeous, spacious and lovely bedrooms. Paddy was a great host. The skis were delivered to the chalet which saved so much hassle as were the ski passes. Paddy booked our restaurants before we arrived. Cannot recommend more highly!! We will come back.

We enjoyed a fantastic week at Nine & Tenne's Chalet Savoyard. The chalet was extremely well appointed and housed all 12 of us across 3 generations very comfortably. Paddy could not have been more accommodating and helpful (including installing a fully decorated Christmas tree!) and we can highly recommend the meal delivery service that Paddy organised for us. The chalet is in a great location, a 10 minute walk into the centre of the village and a short drive from all the skiing locations. Many thanks to Paddy and the owner for a great week.

Having had the most amazing Christmas week with Nine and Tenne at their chalet - Grand Coeur, it’s a shame we can only give it five stars! Paddy and the chalet team of Tess, James and Jake we’re so accommodating of all our needs especially with our toddler and made our stay so comfortable and unforgettable. A highlight was the restaurant quality food and service each night. The organisation was flawless from the moment we booked and we would highly recommend Nine and Tenne. We will certainly be returning! Thank you for everything guys (even the ski tours!)

From initial communication with Paddy to the end of our holiday everything with Nine & Tenne was of the highest standard. Les Clarines is as beautiful as it appears in the photos, was very clean and was a very special place to celebrate a family Christmas. The Chalet is in a perfect location with stunning views of the village and mountains and very close to Petit Chatel bus stop. We are a family of 5 adults and enjoyed the hot tub and space within the Chalet, there are a number of bathrooms, an open plan layout and a kitchen where we could easily prepare our Christmas Dinner. Thanks to everyone at Nine and Tenne.

One of the loveliest chalets we have stayed in, large rooms, private swimming pool. We had food delivered to the chalet so we could eat when we like, shopping was done for us when we arrived. Skis brought to the chalet. Paddy, who owns and runs the chalet, is lovely, friendly,always there to answer questions and run us any where on request, the perfect host. Fabulous holiday with views to die for. X
