Welcome to Chalet Cannelle, Châtel

Chalet Cannelle is located in a peaceful hamlet on the edge of the Châtel Ski resort in the Portes du Soleil.

Ski chalet in the winter, alpine retreat for the summer

Chalet Cannelle luxury chalet lounge

Chalet Cannelle is a spacious 200 year old Abondance cowshed and farmhouse in Châtel, lovingly renovated to a luxury catered ski chalet for winter and a B&B or Chambre d'hôte for the summer. The original features coupled with a contemporary interior makes an exceptional mountain chalet with a welcoming home-from-home atmosphere.

Uniquely designed with vintage pieces and original artwork, Chalet Cannelle has an alpine style without the usual mountain kitsch. Much of what you find in the chalet has been created or upcycled by us, making Chalet Cannelle super special and just that little bit different. Don't take our word for it, see what our guests think in their reviews. Being an owner run chalet, you can trust that what you read is what you get.

The spacious open plan living area invites you to find your own cosy spot. The lounge has 3 large sofas and comfy vintage leather armchairs to settle in with a glass of wine or a book. The double height ceiling with exposed beams reminds you of the barn this once was, while the floor-to-ceiling windows showcase the glorious Mont de Grange and the Abondance valley.

The large dining table is next to the open kitchen, giving you the chef's table experience every night. This is where Andy spends the day, making pasta, ice cream and all manner of creations for you to enjoy. All the meals we serve are made from scratch with the very best of ingredients.

The chalet bedrooms are all ensuite with each one being an individually styled inviting retreat with everything you would expect for a luxury stay; fine quality Egyptian cotton bed linen on super comfy beds, sumptuous towels, gorgeous toiletries & bathrobes. The bathrooms have a mix of walk-in showers and baths to suit everyone.

Chalet Cannelle provides you with perfect spot to relax after an active day in the mountains of the Portes du Soleil - be it in winter with snow-capped peaks, log fire & hot tub or in the summer, with the alpine air filled with distant cow bells.

The Hot Tub

Soak away those legs after a packed ski day in our hot tub. Its stylish outdoor setting gives the feeling of sitting in a hot spring in the snow with the mountains above you. The chlorine free water is a bonus too.

The Garden

The chalet is very private with its own garden all around. Safe for children to play in summer or build snowmen and sledge in during winter. The terrace is just the spot for catching some summer rays with a book.
