Chatel: Backflip

Peaceful, friendly and authentically French, with easy access to some great skiing.

The holiday town of Ch�tel is tucked away in the Portes du Soleil, and though very popular with the French, does not get as many foreign visitors as some of its neighbours. This does have the advantage of lending it a very traditional rustic charm.

Fewer English-speaking visitors means fewer English-speaking shopkeepers, which will give you a great opportunity to practise your schoolboy/girl French!

The lower altitudes mean that sometimes you may have to go elsewhere for deeper snow.


Good variety of terrain.

Taxis can be hard to find after a night out.


Some excellent of piste inbetween the pistes in the Plaine Dranse bowl
