We have stayed at Snowball twice and love the place! The children enjoying playing in the garden outside and there is plenty of space inside. The ski lifts at La Linga or Pre Le Joux are an easy drive or bus journey away, whilst the centre of town is a pleasurable walk away. The chalet is spacious, well resourced and clean. The open fire is wonderful on a cold snowy night. We would thoroughly recomend the chalet and look forward to many more holidays there!

My wife and I have stayed at Snowball in March for the last 4 years. The reason we keep going back is simple – it is perfect for us. Snowball is in a very quiet, but very convenient, location. Off road parking is just outside and out-of-sight. Walking into the centre of Chatel takes less than 10 minutes along an almost flat, very quiet road. We only use the car to go to the main supermarket just outside Chatel or to go over to Morgins, up the valley to Pre la Joux, or down to La Chapelle d’Abondance. The local free little ski bus regularly stops just outside the house, although we have never used it . If you want to find out more about Chatel and skiing, this link seems to provide an accurate summary: www.snow-forecast.com/chatel.pdf. Snowball is ideally situated, with tremendous views over the valley. Coming home from a day’s skiing and sitting with a glass or two of wine on the verandah as the sun goes down is the perfect end of the day. We eat out occasionally (Le vieux four is our favourite) , but we often stay in with the fire as the apartment is very well equipped. The two bedrooms (upstairs) both have lovely views. The apartment is spacious and having both an upstairs and a downstairs loo is an added bonus. Downstairs opens out onto a large patio area and veranda. Any downsides? Not for us! Dealing with Beth and Kester has always been very straightforward – and we look forward to returning again next year.

Everything we hoped for
Everything we hoped for
Let's get the only one minor gripe out of the way to start with... I think that the word 'Chalet' may be misleading - this is a lovely Apartment in a Chalet. This said, everything was first rate - well furnished, good kitchen facilities and very well situated. I spent a great week there as 50+ father of 2 sons both in their 20s and it was big enough for all of us to feel comfortable, unlike the cramped 'on top of each other' conditions one experiences in some other properties. So, in summary, a first class apartment - very helpful instructions from the owner before arrival and local agency staff very helpful too. Go there, you'll enjoy it!

Each year we have been coming back to this same Chalet for 2 glorious weeks in Summer. The location high in the hills is perfect for exploring the surrounding mountain walks and a range of adventure sports. The scenery is absolutely amazing. A variety of local restaurants offer excellent local specialties and the village markets allow you to sample and choose your own local produce for home cooking. Geneva is a day trip away if you tire of the beautiful mountain vistas. There is something for both the adventurous and more relaxed holiday experience.

Fantastic weeks holiday
Fantastic weeks holiday
Having established that we wanted to holiday in the area around Chatel in France we begun to search for the best option taking into account our needs and budget. The property is in the most ideal location with views that still looked as fantastic on day 6 of our holiday. The descriptions given are very true and standard of chalet is even better than described with all needs thought through. Location to town is a very brief pleasant walk as described and easy to access all that Chatel has to offer. Child freindly area as well as our six year old son rated this as better than being at home and found lots to amuse him all week. We have re booked this same chalet for two weeks next year ............... What more do i need to say. Ewen (Perth,Scotland)
