Description from owner


Les Pins is a truly spacious and comfortable apartment. Three double bedrooms - two of which can convert to twins - and a huge living room with two balconies offering panoramic views across the village. Excellent views and outside seating in summer. Underfloor heating keeps the whole apartment warm in winter. It also has its own garage, cellar and ski store. Everything you need from ski equipment to mountain bikes and local delicacies is within walking distance.

Châtel lies at 1200m on the border with Switzerland. Les Pins is midway between the town centre with its Gondola to Super Châtel and Linga/Pre La Joux with chair lift links to Avoriaz, Morzine, Les Gets and Les Crosets. In winter with a Portes du Soleil pass you can ski at 2000m on different slopes every day. In summer you can walk in alpine meadows, scale peaks, raft in white water, swim, play tennis and laze by the lake. For families with small children Chatel's own ski nursery and adventure park is just a snowball's or stone's throw from Les Pins.

“Lovely walking holiday to Chatel.”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2019

We visited Chatel for 10 days in July and early August. The apartment was spacious, clean and well equipped. There was a stunning view from the balcony and close to the free bus service into the village of Chatel. There are three good sized bedrooms with nice, warm and powerful showers across two separate bathrooms. The tourist office in the town was very helpful and we purchased two very useful walking maps and guides in English. There are a collection of lovely bakeries where you can buy freshly cooked bread and pastries. We also liked the very convenient small supermarket where we could buy all of our shopping for the holiday. We visited the spa Form-Do a couple of times and it was very relaxing after a long hike in the mountains. Good to explore the various walks, some more challenging than others but certainly worth the effort. The weather was excellent with many sunny days to explore the area. We didn't have a car but was fine using the local bus service. Great communication between the owner and local representative in Chatel. Very friendly and professional. We certainly come again.

Response from the owner Thank you for such a positive review and I'm so glad you liked the apartment, Chatel and the walking. We look forward to seeing you again in the future. Andrew

Reviewed 15 Jan 2018

Response from the owner Thanks Martyn, very pleased you enjoyed Chatel and the apartment, Andrew

“Chatel Family Ski”

Reviewed 9 Nov 2016

Appt is just a 5-10 min walk below the town, which at least means you get get to stretch your muscles after a days skiing before you hit the bars / restaurants and then it's a nice descent back at the end of the night! Apt is spacious and in reasonable condition with underfloor heating (took a while to figure out the controls) and balcony looking over kindergarten ski area. Master bedroom ensuite was nice, others were simply furnished, but fine. Car parking on quite a steep hill by garages, ski locker room in lobby and ski boot rack outside front door.

Response from the owner Thanks for your review and I am glad that you found everything OK in the apartment and Chatel. The driveway has been rebuilt and resurfaced and is much improved. Andrew

“Excellent accommodation, would recommend a holiday in this Apt”

Reviewed 10 Jan 2014

We stayed in this Apt over New Year 2013/14. from the moment we arrived the accommodation far exceeded our expectations. The accommodation was clean and had all the comforts of home. The Apt was in walking distance of the village and had excellent bus links. The agent for the property was prompt in dealing with our queries and advising on ski passes. The whole package from booking till check out was very professional. We would thoroughly recommend this property for the price and quality and hope to return in the future, Kim,John, Ian,Debbie, Nikki and Nigel six very happy holiday makers.

Response from the owner Thank you so much for the nice comments, I do everything I can to provide a simple, good service, and its great when it works, really pleased you had such a good stay in Chatel

“Excellent accommodation in a wonderful setting”

Reviewed 21 May 2013

We stayed in this apartment for 2 weeks last summer and loved it so much that we are going back again this year for our holiday! It was perfect for us as a family of five. Clean, well equipped and comfortable,gorgeous views and walking distance to the lovely village of Chatel. We spent many happy hours riding on different chair lifts, walking along trails, and relaxing down by Lake Geneva . All in all the perfect accommodation in the perfect resort!

Response from the owner Thank you for staying in our apartment, really glad you liked it ans look forward to seeing you again

“Fantastic Apartment with stunning views”

Reviewed 18 Mar 2013

We stayed here for a week with 2 small children and grandparents. We found the apartment very spacious and warm. Was very near to free bus stops to Ling/Pre la Joux but we did have a friend who lives in Chatel with a car as the bus was sometimes full! Had views across Chatel and the valley and a great balcony to enjoy them from. Had fully fitted kitchen with dishwasher and washer. The only downside was the WIFI didn't work as we had non skiiers. Great place will be booking again Thanks

Response from the owner Thank you for your review. I'm really glad you had a good stay in Chatel and found the apartment so comfortable. I am very sorry that the Wi Fi wasn't working. I thought we had fixed the problem by repairing the phone line and resetting the hub, evidently not. I will reboot the whole thing myself next week. Please be assured the fibre optic cables are usually very fast and reliable. Look forward to seeing you again next year.

“Fantastic place for an active and beautiful summer holiday”

Reviewed 19 Feb 2012

This is a lovely property in a beautiful Alpine town, in a breathtaking valley. The apartment is great place to stay, being really well appointed, having gorgeous open views, and with a superb balcony that affords those breathtaking views and a loevly place to relax or eat. The town of Chatel is very unspoilt, with great facilities for everything you would need in a stay here - shops selling local produce, inc. food and drink, pottery, fashion and trekking clothing, and much more. Then there are plenty of restaurants and bars ot choose from, to suit all tastes, and many events organised to keep everyone entertained. The walking straight from the place is all anyone could want, and this can easily be added to or varied by taking local ski lifts in the summer, thus extending your range greatly. The mountain biking in the area was fantastic too, as we used trails and roads, and also more demanding downhill runs. Then for those interested in the wildlife the alpine meadows, woodlands and mountain tops are still awash with an incredible variety of flowers in summer. I should think you could spend many holidays here and still be finding new and beautiful things to see and do, and revisiting others because they were just so special.

Response from the owner Really pleased you had such a great stay in Chatel and liked our apartment, there is indeed masses to do in summer or winter and you seem to have made the most of it!
