Chatel is situated in the heart of the Portes du Soleil ski area: 40Kms south of Evian (on Lake Geneva), in the Abondance Valley and 3kms from the Swiss village of Morgins. Chatel is a pretty French ski resort with a Swiss feel. It has retained its original village charm while it has blossomed with the growth of snow sports. More recently the summer season has become popular with hundreds of marked itineraries for mountain bikers and walkers. Its reputation for snow in winter and its temperate summer climate is ideal. Apartment Vivaldi is a short walk from the centre of the village with its many restaurants, bars and shops but is on a quiet road with spectacular mountain views. Close to the Swiss border this is a great centre for touring the lakes and mountains of France, Switzerland and Northern Italy. Just 1.5 hours transfer from Geneva airport and 40 minutes drive from Aigle Railway station in Switzerland. The ski lifts are only a short walk from the apartment and there is an excellent free bus service that access the other lifts in the Portes du Soleil region. The ski lifts are also open during July and August when the mountains can be enjoyed on foot or mountain bike; or alternatively from the comfort of the terrace of mountain restaurants.
