I traveled with my two children ,12 and 14 years for a ski trip for 5 nights. We chose this hotel for its location near the Linga lift and for their 3-4 bed room at an affordable price . The hotel is simple, but works very well if you are primarily in Chatel to ski . Rooms are simple but... More

We received a good welcome from Frederico, the manager, when we arrived. Our room had plenty of space for the two of us, was clean and warm, and the balcony overlooked the street at the front of the hotel. Frederico & his staff were friendly and helpful throughout our stay. He even opened the restaurant and prepared a meal for... More

I stayed here with 3 female friends from the 12th - 15th of January 2014. The hotel is virtually next to the main lift up to the P du S ski area.

The hotel is situated outside Chatel in a small village called Villapeyron. It is a short walk to the Linga ski lift. You can ski from Linga all over the Portes du Soleil if you are a decent skier. We drove about 10 minutes to Pre La Joux as it had a larger ski area. As the children were beginners... More

Recently spent a great weekend at the Hotel Eviola l'Eau Vive at the end of business trip to Geneva. We were happy that we were able to book only 2 nights given that most places only reserve by the week. Knowing that we had booked a 2 star hotel, the accommodations were adequate, clean, a little small, and pretty much... More

This is a newly refurbished 2* hotel. Clean, simple but with well appointed rooms and brand new bathrooms. The staff were friendly. The breakfast offered a variety of food item generally found in fancier hotels. The hotel has a very practical ski room and is minutes from the main Gondola. This is a little gem of a hotel. We will... More
