Chalet Q ...
Pre-launch Autumn 2023
Ski the vast Portes du Soleil domain, explore the mountains on foot or by bike, or just relax and enjoy the views from this beautiful, contemporary chalet.
Chalet Q is just a short walk from the centre of Châtel, where you'll find a great choice of shops, bars and restaurants. The ski bus, which is a two minute walk away, will whisk you to the Super Châtel lift or Linga lift in just a few minutes.
In the summer, hiking, biking, paragliding and climbing are just a few of the activities you can try in Châtel. And despite Chalet Q's quiet residential location, you'll be close to all the action. At the end of the day, there are plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from in Châtel, or you can enjoy a wonderful meal and some stargazing on the terrace at Chalet Q.
About the property ...
This detached chalet is located in a quiet location with wonderful uninterrupted views across the mountains and up and down the Abondance valley.
Up to nine guests will find plenty of space to enjoy a wonderful mountain holiday at Chalet Q, which has four bedrooms, each with their own spacious bath or shower room.
On the first floor the master ensuite features a super-kingsize bed and the second bedroom can be either a super-kingsize or a twin. Both rooms open onto a shared balcony. One of the bedrooms has an en suite shower room with a WC and the other has an en suite bathroom with a separate shower and WC.
There are two more bedrooms with spacious en suite shower rooms on the lower ground floor. Again, both can be arranged with a super-kingsize bed or twin beds and both open on to the garden terrace. There's also a separate WC and a laundry room with a washer and dryer on this floor.
All of the bedrooms are beautifully designed, each with different accent colours from a muted, earthy palette that runs throughout the house.
On the ground floor, full-height windows on two sides of the living area flood it with light and give you a wonderful view of the valley and mountains. There are two sofas in the seating area as well as two leather swivel chairs, so that you can choose between joining in the conversation, watching the television or admiring the view!
The modern kitchen has everything you need to cook for a crowd, and you can eat at the large dining table, on the furnished balcony or at the breakfast bar.
Doors open from the dining area and the seating area on to the balcony - there's room to eat out here, and a barbecue for good weather. There's also a ground floor terrace accessible from the bedrooms or the stairs at the side of the house.
There are two parking spaces outside the chalet. The garage has been set up as a ski store with a heated boot rack.
About the area ...
Chalet Q is in a quiet location just a 15-minute walk from the centre of the Châtel, a popular mountain resort in the Portes du Soleil ski domain. The Super-Châtel / Barbossine and Linga / Pre la Joux/ Plaine Dranse sectors that surround the village have 41 ski lifts and 45 slopes, providing plenty of scope for all ages and abilities.
Châtel is still a traditional farming village, retaining its Savoyard architecture and character. But the growth in ski tourism means it now boasts some wonderful restaurants, both on and off the slopes. There's also a great aquatic centre with spa facilities, as well as indoor and outdoor pools, and a popular indoor play centre for younger children.
In the summer, there is a huge choice of trails for hikers and bikers, and those with a taste for adventure can try the Fantasticable - a zipwire which will have you hurtling between the mountains at up to 100kph.
There are plenty of places to explore around Châtel too - the picturesque medieval village of Yvoire, on the banks of Lake Geneva, is just an hour away and the beautiful Chateau de Chillon, near Montreux, is even closer.
Châtel is easily accessible from Geneva airport, either by car (about 90 minutes), train or bus. Or you could arrive in style by booking a helicopter transfer!
If Chalet Q sounds like the perfect base for your next mountain adventure, check your holiday dates against our availability calendar. We can hold up to two weeks for you, without obligation, for 24 hours. But don't leave it any longer, as you could miss out on your chance to stay in this wonderful property.

The OVO Network Review
Chalet Q is a three-storey chalet for 8, with four en suite bedrooms.
Although it's just a 15-minute walk from all the shops, bars and restaurants in Châtel, it's far enough away to make it a relaxing place to return to at the end of the day. Enjoy the sunset from the terrace, light up the barbecue or simply curl up in front of the television!
You won't miss any of the view from the living room, which has full-height windows and doors to the terrace and balcony on two sides. And the view over the valley, the village and the mountains is just wonderful.
It's a pleasure to cook in the sleek, modern kitchen, and there's room for everyone to eat together at the dining table. The seating area has plenty of room for eight to get together and the swivel chairs are a great idea for those who don't want to miss the view or the conversation!
The four double bedrooms all have plenty of storage, and the beds can be arranged either as singles or doubles, depending on what you need.The beautiful bathrooms have walk-in showers, and one also has a bath where you can enjoy a soak before bed.
There's also a useful laundry room and plenty of storage,
We love the well-chosen decor in Chalet Q - restful blues and terracottas are used throughout the chalet, and the poster artwork, skis and snowshoes on the walls are a constant reminder of your Alpine surroundings.

From the owner
We hope you love it as much as we do.
We previously owned a chalet in Morzine for 15 years but found ourselves skiing more and more in the Chatel area and admiring its amazing situation on the side of the beautiful Abondance valley.
We chose this chalet because of its quiet position with easy access to the centre of Chatel and the extensive ski bus network. The bonus was the magnificent views up the valley towards Linga and down towards Abondance.
The chalet has been designed and fitted out to make it as comfortable and homely as possible to allow for wonderful weeks spent with family and friends at any time of year. Chatel is the perfect all season mountain resort which excels for its choice of winter skiing areas.
In summer there is a seemingly endless choice of activities in Chatel and the neighbouring Portes du Soleil villages. We hope you have a truly wonderful holiday.
