We had a brilliant stay in La Grange au Merle with our family of 3 children under 10. The chalet itself was beautiful and comfortable with en suite rooms and a clever set up which will allow different configurations of family and other groups. The chalet staff were friendly and cooked very tasty and varied meals every evening and the cakes that waited for us on our return from the slopes were great. The views across the valley to the mountains from the large sitting room (and hot tub outside) were spectacular. The skiing itself was totally hassle free. Our transfers from Geneva were painless, ski lift passes were waiting for us on arrival, the ski hire company came and fitted our skis in the chalet and the chalet was a short 10 minute stroll away from the village centre where there were some great, friendly bars and restaurants. One of the bonuses of Chatel is that it feels like a real town rather than just a ski resort. Overall, we had a great time.
