The village of Chatel is one of the most unspoilt mountain domains in the region. Its charming original architecture and friendly residents provide a wonderful, welcoming atmosphere throughout the whole year. Chatel is in the Abondance valley and is linked to the highly acclaimed "Portes du Soleil"- one of the largest ski areas in the world with 650 km of ski slopes.

Over the past year we have seen a big increase in the number of investors coming to Chatel. The neighbouring resorts Les Gets, Morzine and Avoriaz have already been fully exploited in terms of development and following the subsequent international interest the prices have risen to a prohibitive level for many. Since, many developers have turned their eye to Chatel and the lower prices are attracting many clients.

Moreover there are 2 major improvements to Chatel which are going to boost the property prices in the village:
1) A new lift system is being built in Chatel from Super Chatel to Lac du Vonnes, then on to Linga which is a massive improvement in the ski lift infrastructure. This is now confirmed with the project due to be finished in 2015. It will ensure that from the Super Chatel side you will be able to get to the rest of the Portes du Soleil (like Avoriaz) on skis very quickly, not having to pass the long way round through Switzerland. It will also mean that many properties in Chatel will have a new lift station closer by which will push prices up.

2) A large new aquatic Spa centre is being built in the centre of town over several levels with gym/sports room, several saunas & hammams, large pool, relaxation and wellness/treatment rooms. It is going to be 2841m2 and will undoubtedly add more to the resort's appeal, especially in summer.

Easy and quick access from Geneva

Portes du Soleil is a major snow sports destination which ranks among the two largest ski areas in the world. It is therefore one of the most attractive
domains of the French Alps if not the world, both for tourists and investors.
The domain spreads from Lake Geneva up to the Mont Blanc, offering over 650 kilometres of slopes of all levels with 280 tracks. This is a crossborder
domain linking 12 resorts from France to Switzerland including top destinations such as Chatel, Avoriaz,
Morzine and Les Gets on the French side and Morgins, Champoussin and Champery on the Swiss side.

12 linked resorts from Mont Blanc in France to Lake
Geneva in Switzerland
o Some resorts are over one thousand years old
o 89 piste-side restaurants
o 650km of slopes
o 280 tracks
o You can ski across the entire domain without ever
taking your skis off
o 7 cross-country ski pistes and 8 multi-discipline
routes for skiers
o Geneva International airport only 1 hour away
o Top elevation 2466m
o 200 ski lifts
