It is a traditional, picturesque and atmospheric French mountain village and, even though skiing in Châtel has become one of the most popular ski holidays in France, it has retained its authentic character. The village is well known for its archaic architecture with lots of old wooden chalets and historic churches. Despite being surrounded by the fragile and historic buildings, a Châtel ski holiday is renowned by holiday-goers for its lively atmosphere and large skiing area.

It is, however, a part of the vast Les Portes du Soleil ski area, and with an upgraded lift pass you can have access to over 650km of ski slopes as well as skiing in Châtel.
