'Les Chalets de Marie 23C' is in la Panthiaz, la Chapelle d’Abondance, which is part of the Portes du Soleil ski area.
Our spacious 2nd floor, 2 bedroom apartment has an open plan living/dining/kitchen area (with sofa bed), a double bedroom, a twin room, bathroom and separate toilet. It is comfortably furnished, with ample kitchen and dining equipment for your stay, and doors from the living area opening onto the balcony offering amazing views of the mountain behind. This catches the sun in the morning, so it’s perfect for enjoying breakfast outside!
The large six seater dining table has plenty of space for you to enjoy a home cooked meal after an active day out in the mountains.
We have converted our garage into a fully equipped bicycle workroom and storage space with full selection of tools, work stand, cycle racks & stands, track pump, washing/cleaning equipment, spare locks, car bike rack and plenty of storage space for bike boxes. If you're flying over for your holiday, putting your bike back together will be simple!
Please be aware that we also use this space to store our own bikes. These are locked and are not available for guest use.
There is also a secure storage room on the ground floor of the apartment building, off the main entrance to the building, for you to store ski boots/ski's,
Situated less than 100mts from 'La Panthiaz' telecabine, you have direct access into the 650km Portes du Soleil ski area. From here you can easily connect to the Swiss part of the ski area, and also round into Chatel & Avoriaz. There’s also a free ski bus stop 50mts away, that can take you either to Chatel/Pre la Joux or to the small ski area at Cret Beni in la Chapelle.
Summer is just as active as Winter in la Chapelle and there are many more activities on offer like road cycling, mountain biking, white water rafting, rock climbing, fishing and hiking.
There are plenty of famous cols in the area to tackle, including the Col de Bassachaux and Col du Corbier. If you head over to the next valley you can reach the Col de la Joux Verte, Avoriaz, Col de Joux Plane, Col de la Ramaz, Col de l'Encrenaz and many more.
If you're after a slightly flatter ride you can always make your way down to Lac Leman for a beautiful route around the edge of the lake.
La Chapelle is a beautiful, authentic Savoyan village at 1020mts altitude, between Chatel and Abondance, approx. 90mins drive from Geneva airport.
There’s plenty of choice for restaurants & bars in the village, all within walking distance, but we particularly recommend le Fer Rouge, which is a micro-brewery and only 5mins walk from the apartment, and l'Atelier Jacky which is only a further 3-5mins walk and has a wonderful terrace and the food is amazing!
