Newly built and completed in 2020, Chalet Alpaga is a beautiful family chalet, boasting south-west views both up and down the valley, surrounded on 3 sides by fields and just 10 minutes walk to the centre of the pretty mountain village of Chatel. It is perfectly set up for a large family, with space for everyone. The chalet has 5 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, a large well-equipped kitchen, dining area and lounge. There is also a family room on the lower level which leads out to the hot tub.

On arriving at the chalet, you can park 1 car in the garage, and there is space for 3 more cars outside. There are 2 doors at the front, one leads to the tiled boot room, with storage for boots and ski-wear, and any skis or snowboards can be put in the integral garage. Through the front door (the middle floor of the chalet), you are met with a lovely bright and large area. On your right there is a large cupboard for all the family's coats, shoes etc. On your left are the doors to the boot room (where the washing machine and tumble dryer are) and to a WC. On this level there is underfloor heating.
You then enter the large well equipped kitchen with Smeg oven and microwave, hob, fridge-freezer, wine fridge, coffee machine (nespresso), dishwasher, toaster, pierrade machine, cafetiere, plenty of cutlery, crockery and glasswhere for everyone, along with plastic sets for the children.

Where you’ll be

Châtel, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, France

Chatel is a beautiful mountain village, nestled in the Alps Swiss border and is part of the famous Portes du Soleil ski area, one of the largest connected areas for snowsports in the world. It is both a summer and a winter venue. There are many restaurants to choose from here for every budget, along with cafes, locally made goods, bakeries, bars, a post office, equipment hire shops and much more.

In the winter, apart from skiing and snowbording, there is a multitude of snowshoeing routes, husky sled rides, paragliding, fondue eating, or enjoying the views with a warm hot chocolate.

In the summer, the Portes du Soleil is a huge mountain biking destination. There are many events held here. Chatel also has a big farming community so there are wonderful events such as the Belle Vache (beautiful cow contest) in August, and further down the road, the Mont Blanc Rally. There are hundreds of kms of hiking trails and mounatin lakes to be discovered here too.
