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.

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!
