Chalet Cannelle

Chatel, Haute-Savoie

Swap the mêlée for privacy, balconies, views... Adults round the fire, kids on the mezzanine, après ski bliss in the Portes du Soleil


10 beds


6 rooms


Rooms sleep 16


The diffuse light of a contemporary chandelier spills onto the seasoned pine of this stylish chalet; logs under eaves and higgledy-piggledy panelling evoke glimpses of the past. In a hamlet a five-minute drive from the lovely cheese-producing village of Chatel – peace descends after a day conquering the Portes du Soleil. This converted farmhouse circled by wintry snows has a local-stone ground floor and three wooden storeys above. Stunning views of iced mountains and pine-packed valleys greet you from panoramic windows and balconies, the private garden (great for snowmen competitions) has a wood-fired pizza oven, and a toy-filled den with a TV wins children over. En suite sleeping quarters are cosy with fluffy throws and original art. Delicious treats (using only free range produce from local farmers) flow from the kitchen or the terrace’s wood-fired oven. Gather for log fires and nightcaps around the three-beam coffee table as you discuss the exploits of the day… Once in you won’t want to leave.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Lorraine McDermott

  • The chalet is in the heart of the Portes du Soleil, 650km of terrain across France and Switzerland. Easy skiing access to Avoriaz, Morzine & Champoussin
  • The chalet is close to 4 different ski lifts into the Portes du Soleil. Our favourite ski day is the tour from La Chapelle, through Switzerland and Avoriaz and back to Chatel. Afternoon tea is very appreciated after that day out!
  • We can organise airport transfers with a local company at a special rate. Fully catered price includes transfer to the slopes
  • The style of dining at Chalet Cannelle is chefs table. Everything is made from scratch..expect to see fresh pasta being rolled or ice cream being churned. We use the best produce including free range meat. Our beautiful hens provide our eggs
  • We are partnered with a specialist in-house ski fitting service, providing quality ski equipment to our guests without leaving the chalet. We also offer a chauffeur in / out service to a ski lift of your choice
  • The Abondance valley is famous for its cows and cheese. In the Summer the surrounding hills ring with the cow bells. Visit one of the local farm shops or markets and have a taste.
