A Professional Team

Our team of four chalet staff will take care of you each day.  So much so that you may not want to ski at all! Before you meet them, all enquiries and pre-holiday arrangements are handled personally by me, Clare.

Dinner Wine Pairings

Your four-course dinner will be accompanied by wines from our cellar, selected by our sommelier and changing every night to accompany our chef's creations.

All-day Resort Chauffeur

Choose when and where to go throughout the day across the resort. The Châtel lifts are just a few minutes drive; want a pick up from the village; a lift after après; or time to go sledging?  Just call and we'll be there!

Late Check Out Facility

Many of our guests enjoy a last day's skiing before departure.  We don't want you to leave in a bundle of salopettes - ask about our changing room facility.

Hot Tub Patio & Sauna

Relax in our outdoor hot tub while overlooking the snowy valley in the rays of the setting sun or the glow of the patio fire with a glass of fizz. Alternatively, bask in the steamy heat of our indoor sauna.

20+ Complimentary Wines

Our ‘carnotzet’ is stocked with premium wines and craft beers and is open for you to explore. The complimentary cocktail bar upstairs offers brand spirits and craft gin.

Children's Play Time

Whether building snowmen in the garden or tea parties in the children's alpine-chalet ‘mazot’, hiding in the little mezzanine snug or lounging in the games and movie room, there are lots of things to entertain the troops.

Bespoke Design

Each of our rooms has been specially designed to blend traditional materials and modern luxuries, creating individual character.

Great Value Luxury

Relax in one of the premiere ski chalets of Châtel, offering some of the best value luxury stays across Morzine, Les Gets and the Portes du Soleil.
