This chalet has been beautifully and thoughtfully refurbished by Deb and Al. The bedrooms are comfortable with thoughtful touches including robes and hairdryer, there's a lovely snug/tv area upstairs and the lounge/dining area is charming with a fireplace and feature staircase. The food is all freshly cooked and delicious and there are excellent wines to complement it. It is a... More

Chalet Cateraine is a little gem. The hosts Debs & Al take great pride in providing an A++ service and accommodation. Their attention to detail is fabulous and their chalet luxurious. They have this wonderful ability to be there for your every need and yet they're not there hence ensuring your privacy. As for the food and wine.....They are both... More

Anyone searching for winter or summer accommodation in the Portes de Soleil village of Chatel should look no further than Chalet Cateriane - in fact, they should book at once as this is a real gem! Having experienced the vagaries of ski chalets over the last 50 years, we have never stayed in a more comfortable and attractive one. Alan... More

What makes Chalet Catherine superb are the owners Debs and Al, they have thought of everything when it comes to Chalet experience. My 1 and only criticism would be the creaky floor boards particularly in the bedroom above the downstairs bedroom, particularly if someone gets up in the night. Don't let put you off, the beds are really comfortable, clean... More

We have been to Chatel many times but this was the first time staying at Chalet Cateriane!!! The owners Deb and Al exceeded our expectations in every way... nothing was too much trouble. The food was not only delicious and wonderfully presented, it was also well balanced and not the usual chalet fattening comfort food... wines were fantastic and for... More

An incredible holiday!" Well, following our stay last week I can only say that the same still applies but I would add another superlative "epic"! We have... More

We just came back from a week in this great chalet. We had a wonderful time! Great place to stay with small kids, large garden, comfortable rooms - luxury indeed! And the area? with great tips from our kind hosts we enjoyed the French Alps on a very sunny summer week. Thanks!
