“Fantastic, spacious apartment in beautiful location.”
Reviewed August 19, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The apartment was very spacious and well equipped and it was useful having 2 bathrooms for a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 teenagers). Everything was well cared for and clean - the large windows meant that the apartment was light and airy.The 2 balconies were much larger than we had expected and enabled us to eat outside and enjoy the view down the valley. Arrangements for collection and return of keys was very straightforward. We spent 2 weeks in the apartment during July/August and found loads to do in and around Chatel - a particular favourite was the Fantasticable. We also bought Portes du Soleil Multipasses on several days (8 euros per person per day) which gives access to all chairlifts, swimming pools, crazy golf etc over the whole area - the pass offers great value for money. We used the swimming pools at Chatel, Morgins and Champery and enjoyed them all. There is an Intermarche supermarket (10 mins drive or an hours walk along by the river) and also bakeries within 10 minutes walk. It was around 40 minutes drive to Lake Geneva - our favourite swimming spot was in the lake at Amphion les Bains, although the pools at Thonon Plage were also good. Definitely a great holiday!

Glad you liked the apartment and found it good value, I always try to stay at the better end of the price range and will keep doing so. The buses are pretty efficient, especially as you had a lot of snow to contend with, so I'm pleased they worked for you. Thanks for staying in our place and hope we'll see you again.

“Great Apartment with Fantastic Views”
Reviewed September 1, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had a great stay here for a week in the summer. The apartment is very spacious, well equipped and has fantastic views of the valley from the balconies.
It is a short walk to the village for shops, restaurants, weekly market and entertainment. We used the ski lifts in Chatel to reach the walking trails in the mountains and other lifts are a short drive/bus ride away. In the summer the area is great for walking, with fantastic views, and many other activities - especially mountain biking.
We also went to the new 'aquatic centre' great for relaxing at the end of the day in the heated outdoor pool surrounded by mountains. ( Note - as in most French swimming pools men have to wear fitted swimming shorts which we got from the super market!)
The apartment had everything we needed for a really enjoyable holiday.

“Perfect apartment with great views of beautiful area”
Reviewed July 14, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a week long summer holiday and loved it! The apartment was spacious with its open plan kitchen, living room and dining table that faced the beautiful views of surrounding mountains. We enjoyed being able to sit out on the balcony for dinner watching the sun set whilst playing music from the great provided hi-fi. We didn't take a car but it was only a short walk into the center of Chatel, where there are restaurants and bars. The Avalanche bar is the closest I think and a great evening out. The free bus service around Chatel and the coach to Thonon were great and reliable so getting around was easy. Walking in the area is a must as the views are breath taking. We went white water rafting with AN Rafting down in Thonon too which was unforgettable. We also recommend the Fantasticable which is a 1200m zipwire where you lie flat and soar between the mountain tops at speeds around 60mph! A must for all. We would recommend this apartment to everyone as we had a truly brilliant week.

Thank you for your review. I'm really glad you had a good stay in Chatel and found the apartment so comfortable. I am very sorry that the Wi Fi wasn't working. I thought we had fixed the problem by repairing the phone line and resetting the hub, evidently not. I will reboot the whole thing myself next week. Please be assured the fibre optic cables are usually very fast and reliable. Look forward to seeing you again next year.
