Ski Accommodation in Chatel

 

Whether you’ve skied for years or just starting out, here’s a handy guide to the different accommodation options for your ski holiday in Chatel:

Self Catered Chalets & Apartments in Chatel

The simplest and least expensive ski accommodation option is self catered, and in Chatel there’s a growing number of apartments and chalets available on this basis.   Depending on the nationality of the owners, various items such as bedding, towels and cleaning may or may not be included in the price – always check!

Bear in mind that with self catered places you’ll need to arrange your airport transfers and getting about in-resort.  In Chatel, there are a number of local transfer companies doing regular trips up and down the mountain and some offer individual seats if your group can’t fill a whole minibus.

A lot of the French owned apartments and chalets often have a lot of beds per square meter, so check the size of your accommodation to ensure it suits your group.

If you don’t have any kind of ‘rep’ in resort, it’s a good idea to ask your accommodation owner about getting lift passes, where to get equipment hire and who to contact for lessons.

For high quality self catered apartments try the new Chalets D’Angele residence.

Catered Chalets in Chatel

Catered ski holidays offer a greater level of luxury, with chalet staff on-hand to cook your meals, clean your room, take you to the slopes and help you decide where to ski each day.   In theory, everything should be taken care of so all you really need to worry about is whether you’d like a gin & tonic or glass of champagne for your pre-dinner tipple!

Across the Alps, catered chalets can obviously vary in standard and pricing, and with the rise of the ‘uber ski chalets’ in some resorts, a week’s skiing can set you back up to £100,000 (that’s not including food and drink!!!).  Happily in Chatel, things haven’t reached those silly heights, and there’s a good choice of ‘affordable luxury’ options.  As with all holidays, aim for the off peak times of the season such as mid January to get the best deals at catered chalets.

As well as gourmet catering (breakfast, afternoon tea, dinner and drinks) – most catered chalets offer a ‘concierge’ service to arrange ski lessons, equipment hire, childcare, and other requests during your stay.  Check if airport transfers are included, as more and more chalets now add these on at an extra cost.

A chauffeured minibus in resort is generally included with catered chalets, but check that the service is flexible as opposed to a set time in the morning and a set time after skiing.

If you’re not sure what kind of chalet you’d like, try a site such as Chatel Ski Chalets who feature a large selection of chalets with various budgets, styles, and facilities to suit your needs.

Hotels in Chatel

Chatel has a good selection of hotels, mainly French operated (but English speaking) and ranging in star quality and offerings.   Many have very traditional Savoyard style and heritage.

Hotel accommodation offers more flexibility if you’re only staying for a couple of nights – (most chalets – whether catered or self catered will only take week bookings during the winter).  Pricing often begins with room only options, then B&B and half board.

If your hotel is situated outside the village centre consider opting for half board so your evening meals are included.  Although there are some excellent restaurants in the village there are very few taxis, and hotels often don’t include the chauffeur service that a catered chalet would.

It’s unlikely that a hotel will organise your transfers, ski passes, equipment hire and lessons but it’s always worth asking.

Our favourite hotel in Chatel is the Fleur de Neige.

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.

Wonderful place! Large well-equipped kitchen. The chalet and rooms were bigger than appeared on website. Also a heated room for ski gear. Nine & Tenne went above and beyond to arrange all for our stay.

What a fabulous week. We've been skiing for around 40 years and Chalet Nine & Tenne was without doubt the finest place that we have stayed in. We have been coming to Chatel for around twenty years and have known Paddy and Jo for many of these - why, oh why haven't we stayed in one of their chalets before? Not only was the accommodation fantastic but, so too, was every other aspect. Paddy runs a superb business and the in-house team of Benji, Jake and Liz could not do enough for us. The food was far better than any experienced before on a ski holiday thanks to Benji's chef's skills; Liz was only too willing to take us/pick us up at any time; and Jake was the perfect house-keeper. A huge thank you to one and all.

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.

What a fantastic week, the owners and staff at Nine and Tenne were outstanding. The food, transportation, chalet and hospitality far exceeded our expectations. We were fortunate to drop on a week that blessed us with blue skies and great skiing conditions which made the whole experience even better. Chatel is a lovely little town that has everything you need and is easily accessed with the chauffer service that Nine and Tenne provide. The skiing has more than enough slopes to cater for beginners right through to experts. If you book with Nine and Tenne I am sure you will not be disappointed. TOP CLASS!
