Thank you Iris. The linen service, should guests choose to use it, is provided by a local company and is outside of our control, but looks like you found a better solution anyway. I look forward to seeing you again. Chris

About the neighborhood
Châtel is the most Swiss-like of all the French resorts, whose combination of tradition and modernism welcomes you in an exceptional setting. Situated at the end of the picturesque and rural Abondance valley and just a stone's throw from the Swiss border between Lake Geneva and the Mont Blanc, Châtel is a charming haut-savoyard village. It is easily accessible from Geneva airport by motorway (1 hour 30 mins) or by train to Aigle then taxi. Nearby places to visit include: Evian, Chamonix, Annecy, Verbier, Montreux.

In summer there are many mountain trails for walkers and mountain bikers.
Getting around
In season there is a free bus service to the town centre, and some chair lift stations that stops right outside the apartment.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Geneva: 47.8 mi
Railway: Aigle: 17.4 mi

If you are flying, you can rent a car at Geneva airport, or take the train from the airport to Aigle then taxi to Châtel. Alternatively I can provide details of companies in the area that provide airport transfers.

If you drive from UK, I can provide routes from Calais - you will need to buy a pass (Vignette) to use the Swiss Motorways.

There is a frequent free bus service that stops right outside the apartment in the summer and winter seasons.
