Summer in Chatel

There are lots of things to do in Chatel and the surrounding area in the summer.

The Portes du Soleil region is the centre for mountain biking. It is easy to hire bikes - we have even managed to find a shop that rents out bikes with batteries! The mountain lifts are open which allows easy access to some of the more picturesque areas and there are lots of lovely walking trails. (Please note that the chalet is not suitable for dedicated mountain bikers as we don’t have facilities for washing bikes and lots of mud!)

Chatel is only about half an hour from Lake Geneva and there is a championship golf course at Evian. There is a hot springs pool at Val d’Illez, rafting on the River Dranse, horse-riding, tennis and if you enjoy a thrill you can always try the Fantasticable!
