Martin and Sue have been visiting Châtel with their three children for over 20 years. Initially just in the summer and then both summer and winter holidays were spent at L’Oustalet, the excellent campsite run by Marie-Jo and Philipe Thoule. Over the years they have fallen in love with the village and it’s surrounding area and nine years ago they decided to give up caravanning and purchase a chalet, which has undergone extensive renovation with the help of local craftsmen.

Chalet Gallois is a traditional chalet and is situated only one mile from the centre of the village  with easy access to the Super Châtel ski area, and less than 3/4 mile from the Linga ski area.

A free bus service passes the chalet and there is a bus stop opposite the chalet.

Off road parking for two or three cars is available directly in front of the chalet.
