Chalet Gallois offers superb self catering holiday accommodation for up to 10 people.

Chalet Gallois is a charming traditional chalet situated in the alpine village of Châtel  in the beautiful Abondance Valley, it is only 90 minutes from Geneva Airport and is an ideal location for both winter and summer holidays. Châtel is part of the large Portes du Soleil ski area – a linked area of pistes in both France and Switzerland.

We are part of the MultiPass scheme which runs in the summer months and provides great offers on many local attractions.

Covid 19

In these difficult times you can have the reassurance that we are complying with all the relevant enhanced cleaning protocols.

Covid-19 Update 5th November 2020

At the moment both French and Swiss authorities are saying that the Portes du Soleil area will be open as normal, with no restrictions on the number of skiers allowed on the slopes and no problem moving between countries. People will need to wear a mask whilst queueing for and riding a ski lift and numbers per lift will be reduced, so expect longer waiting times.  Restaurants and bars will be open but with fewer tables available and masks must be worn when not seated at the table.  The bus service will also operate with a reduced capacity. 

Obviously this is an ever changing scenario and depends very much on what Regional, National and International lockdowns are in place. We wait and see….

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.
