Visited this small 8 roomed chalet style hotel for two nights half board on a walking holiday at the end of June. Rob, the owner, and his wife couldn't have been more welcoming when we arrived wet and weary after a full days walking in the mountains. The room was very clean and tidy with great balcony overlooking the river.... More

New shower with great. This was our 1st ski holiday with the boys. Le Renard was perfect. Fantastic food - Rob is an awesome chef... More

After a day's skiing what could be better than a log fire, reasonably priced, well cooked and interesting food, excellent wines, super service and Shadow the dog over seeing events. Returned for first time since last winter and pleased to report that Le Reynard is as good as ever, even on a quiet night the atmosphere was warm and welcoming.... More

We stayed for 4 days and you can see why everyone comes back to Chatel! Chatel is a quaint little village where everyone knows each other. Le Renard is a lovely little hotel. The food is outstanding - I would go to the restaurant anyway. If the French eat there then it's got to be a good sign. The bus... More

Based near the Linga area of Chatel, we saw this restaurant and thought we'd give it a try. It was great. We returned one year later and it was just as fantastic. There is a lovely atmosphere in the restaurant and the food is amazing. Great presentation and totally delicious. For our money, the best in the area and well... More

We only intended to eat at Le Renard one day of our holiday, but the food was so good we had to eat there every day. Good wine and beer and excellent ambience. Get a table by the wood burning fire in the winter to warm up after a days skiing....
