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.

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

A beautifully appointed and presented luxury chalet with great views. Paddy & his team (Chris, Becky & Shauna) seamlessly attended to our every need both in the chalet and on the mountain. Thank you for making our week so wonderful. Stuart YB

La Belle Vache was awesome. The house was beautiful and well-appointed, in a great location. The house is comfortable with great space to hang out, cook, and enjoy the mountains. Paddy was also wonderful, and met our every need and request. He was so helpful with making arrangements so that our ski week was seamless and so much fun. We highly recommend this property and Paddy!

Really special stay. Paddy and his team made everything easy and comfortable. We appreciated all the considered details, from our names on the pool towel rack to the kids’ nooks throughout.

We had a wonderful holiday with Paddy and his team. When we arrived we were warmly welcomed by Paddy & Tessa, the fire was roaring, the chef Harry was cooking a delicious meal and Braydon was preparing welcome drinks, after a long journey with kids it was just bliss! The chalet was fantastic and the service all week was second to none. All equipment delivered to the chalet, and we were taken to the slopes by Paddy. We even got delicious cakes and tea after a long day skiing. Thanks again folks!
