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

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

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.

Les Clarines is a beautiful contemporary Chalet with amazing views of Châtel village and the surrounding mountains. Paddy gave us a wonderful welcome and we really enjoyed our stay. The hot tub was a bonus! We will definitely be back :)
