About the Owner, Mrs Jane McGarry

Get the best tips and advice from us for enjoying your alpine holiday. Ski instructors, race coaches, Olympians & medics, physics, exercise & nutritional specialists make up our family. We'd love to help before during & after your holiday!

Why this location? We chose Chatel because of its beauty summer and winter, the fact that it is a genuine Savoyard village, with family run businesses offering unrivaled welcomes and great value. La Corniche is in the prime spot close to the village and the immense ski area.
The convenience for motorways and Geneva airport help, along with facilities of the lake of Geneva and many local sites of interest which you may enjoy as much as we do.
Unique benefits of property You can rent La Corniche apartment and enjoy many of the benefits of a chalet without paying chalet rental prices.
The apartment is a separate residence within our private chalet so not in a block of flats. It has a large terrace facing the Mont Grange nature reserve. A big outdoor hot tub will enhance your winter or summer stay. There is private parking; all facilities rarely found at apartment rental rates.

The Owner Recommends

Les Cornettes

In the next village, La Chapelle, the most wonderful gastronomic menus from 23 Euros for 4 sumptuous courses plus a little aperitif, always perfection of service, presentation and quality. A treat we always enjoy, get there by taxi or drive 10 mins.

Location and Activities

Situated in a tranquil spot just above the village of Chatel, close to lifts with direct access to the pistes of the vast Portes-Du-Soleil ski circuit. The local free tourist bus stops close by and shops etc are a short stroll away. The apartment has wonderful facilities with it's vast terrace and adjacent big hot-tub. The incredible views and perfect position are unique.

Nearest Restaurant

Short stroll to village with a great range of restaurants, tearooms and bars, tell us what you like and we'll recommend.

Portes Du Soleil Lift pass

10% off your lift pass for the world's largest inter-connected ski area; honestly forget the one-way crowded circus of the 3 valleys, this is the real deal from motorways to tree lined pistes and endless off-piste that doesn't get tracked out (we can tell you where to head). This lift pass usually comes top on the Sunday Times list of best value lift passes.

We had a very enjoyable week at the property, which was very well maintained and very clean. The owners are very welcoming and although were staying in the same property (obviously separate accommodation), provided just the right balance between availability for questions and leaving you to have a nice private holiday. We will definitely be returning, as we loved the property and the surrounding countryside.

Owner response

Wow! Thank you! We do try and do believe it's a great apartment in a wonderful location so it's fabulous to hear our guests see it the same way!
