Chatel’s property market has been given a significant boost recently with the opening of a new lift which has much improved the connection to the rest of the Portes du Soleil.
Chatel is one of the most authentic and charming resorts that you will find within this huge ski region and the typical Savoie ‘Chalet-style’ architecture dominates.
Chatel’s most sought after property for sale would be the ‘prime’ chalets that line the sunny hillside that overlooks the village center. However, if you budget does not stretch this far you will find a good selection of new build apartments for sale in the village centre.
Property prices tend to be more affordable here than in nearby Morzine or Les Gets with ski apartments for sale averaging around EUR 4,800 / m2.
Chatel is a charming and largely unspoilt ski resort that is still home to many working farming communities.
More affordable than nearby Morzine and Les Gets it maintains an authentic French Savoie feeling and you will find a warm and welcoming atmosphere wherever you go.
Chatel is one of the 12 resorts that makes up the vast Portes du Soleil ski region that includes the likes of Avoriaz, Champery, Morzine and more. The ski areas span across some 650kms of pistes that includes resorts in both Switzerland and France.
The local Chatel ski region includes the areas of Super Chatel, Linga as well as the Swiss resorts of Torgon and Morgins. It is possible to buy a cheaper lift just for this area which totals about 130kms of piste if you don’t think you’ll ski the whole of the Portes du Soleil!
On the mountain and after you days skiing you will find plenty of welcoming restaurants and après ski bars including the popular Crazy Lion.
Non-skiers and kids are well catered for with winter slides, sledging, guided snow-shoeing and even an indoor swimming complex.
As an established French farming village, you will find plenty of life in Chatel throughout the year. In the summer, the mountains are re-claimed from the snow by eager cattle who will watch with interest and you navigate the well-marked hiking and biking trails.
Many of the farmhouses and lifts remain open during the summer months for some fine Savoie food and a short cut up the mountain!
The area is a popular mountain biking destination and many of the lifts are adapted to allow you to take a bike up the hill with you.
The popular activity ‘Multi Pass’ gives you unlimited access to more than 30 great summer activities including access to all the swimming lakes, tennis, trains, ski lifts and much more.
