Châtel Joyau des Neiges

6 Bedrooms

Located at the foot of the slopes in the lovely village of Châtel, this six-bedroom chalet is set over three floors and features an open-plan layout with a living space of 185 sqm. Blending beautiful alpine detailing with contemporary design for a touch of rustic chic, the chalet is just a few minutes away from the Super Châtel ski lifts and boasts superb views of the mountains from all three floors.

Close to the Swiss Valais border, Châtel is one of the most popular villages in the Portes du Soleil ski domain with an excellent selection of restaurants, bars and leisure activities available on a year-round basis.

Surrounded by some of the most beautiful pastures in Haute Savoie, Châtel is home to a thriving local dairy industry and visits to the region's farm shops to try delicious Abondance cheese are all part of the village’s natural charm.

The ski chalet

A three-storey property built in the style of a traditional Châlus farmhouse, this six-bedroom home combines a cosy chalet vibe with high-end design for a fresh modern feel. Finished with natural wood and stone elements, oversized windows and gabled ceilings create a sense of space and openness throughout the chalet while ensuring the interior stays true to the building’s original character.

Exceptionally spacious, the chalet’s main living space is an open-concept living area on the first floor with a high-end fitted kitchen plus multiple lounge and dining areas for socialising or entertaining. Featuring exposed beams and organic stone accent walls, a suspended log burner is the focal point of the living area which opens directly onto the chalet’s large west-facing balcony.

The second floor of the chalet comprises four ensuite bedrooms including a master bedroom which boasts a freestanding bathtub set in a bow window with panoramic views of the mountains. Two additional double bedrooms can be found on the ground floor of the chalet with a shared family bathroom plus a separate guest toilet.

Set in a private garden, both ground-floor bedrooms open onto a large terrace with a traditional Savoyard ‘mazot’ extension which is now used to house the chalet’s hot tub. Sold with a double garage in the basement, the chalet also comes with a ski locker and a service room.


Investment potential

One of the most sought-after locations in the Les Portes du Soleil area with easy access to Geneva International Airport, as a “Famille Plus Montagne'' ski resort, Châtel represents an excellent investment opportunity with extremely advantageous rates of return thanks to the village’s dual-season appeal.


“Conveniently located just steps away from the ski lifts, shops and restaurants in the centre of the village, this modern six-bedroom chalet is completely ready to move into and has fantastic potential for use as a second home or a lucrative short-term rental property.”
