What’s new in Chatel this season?

Whats new in Chatel


Last year saw some major developments in the ski area of Chatel, with new chair lifts to link the Super Chatel and Linga pistes, and introduction of a fantastic ‘magic carpet’ beginner lift at Pre La Joux.

So with the ski area in tip top shape for the 2015/6 season, what else is new?  Well… as you know a big part of a ski holiday is eating and drinking and this season sees some exciting new restaurant and bar openings

Le Hors Piste Chatel

One of our favourite spots for a drink and a snack in the centre of Chatel, Le Hors Piste is under new management and has never looked better! Tina and Tony have jazzed up the interiors and created a stylish little bar at the front of the building with cosy restaurant area at the back and pizzeria on the lower floor.

The restaurant food is freshly made to order with a small but delicious menu that changes frequently, and the pizzas are as authentically Italian as you can get!   Breakfasts, morning coffees, apres and late night drinks will also be available at Hors Piste.. so see you there!


L’Escale Hotel & Restaurant

We absolutely love the skiing in Super Chatel above the village, but if we’re honest it’s always tricky to get a really decent lunch up there (and we all know how important a decent lunch is on a ski day!)  We’re hoping that the brand new L’Escale will provide the solution to our dilemna!

Situated right by the top of the Super Chatel telecabine with a huge sunny terrace overlooking the village, L’Escale will feature a stylish bar/restaurant serving brasserie style lunches as well as Savoyard favourites.  We can’t wait to try it out!


La Folie des Neiges

There’s limited information about this new offering at Plaine Dranse (just at the top of the Pierre Longue chairlift), but if what we hear is correct La Folie des Neiges will not only offer a new lunch spot with brasserie, rotisserie and bar – but it will also have a big focus on apres-ski…. how exciting!

The exterior of the building is looking very smart, so here’s hoping for a great new place to stop for a cheeky apres on the last run home!

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!
