CHATEL, l’Oustalet


Selected because of its location 1200m high, two minutes from the Swiss border between Mont Blanc and lake Geneva, this site is perfect for summer and winter holidays and for those who appreciate a real Savoyard atmosphere. It is in the heart of the mountains and the fabulous Portes du Soleil ski-ing area, 450m from the nearest cable car. In the summer it is a centre for walking, mountain biking, rafting and pony riding. It is right on a tributary of the river Dranse, and is well-loved by trout fishermen. The site is 1.5km below the centre of the village in a verdant valley and the pitches are laid out on two sides of a quiet mountain road. In summer you can't fail to be impressed by wealth of beautiful flowers throughout the site. Minimum booking period one week in high season and 3 days in low season.
