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!


NINE & TENNE offer a premium collection of ski accommodation in Chatel.

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 :)
