#8 of 16 Speciality lodging in La Chapelle-D'Abondance
Résidence La Joly was created in 2000 by Cor and Judy Overeem. With the purchase of a plot of land at the foot of the slopes, they have built in Austrian style five chalets. These chalets are luxurious apartments, B & B rooms, a private ski shop, common lounge with wood-burning stoves and Grand Café created. La Joly is now characterized by a high standard and guarantees a great winter or summer holiday. Portes du Soleil is in the winter a paradise for skiers. In the summer months are organized by Cor & Judy and Bill Owens golf courses. Jan and Els Kelder take over the organization of the bridge weeks on their behalf.

A couple of chalet like buildings with apartment's in them, located in the Northern French Alps about 90 minutes from Geneva, close to the small independent ski area of Cret Beni in La Chappelle D Abondance.

We had a just 1 night stay, but all was perfect in this time. So we arrived later than normal and they waited for us. We had the check in in our very friendly room. Nothing special, just friendly and confortable. The only thing we’d like to see maybe next time is a soap or something to wash your hands. 🤷🏻‍♂️ The breakfast was perfect. Not a huge buffet, bug enough and everytime something missed they refill them. Or we just had to ask to get something special. Ghanks again for the stay, and see you next time. 😉

So second visit here, plus side, good location, next to La Chapelle-d’Abondance ski area, 100m away. Small but some great runs, 2 chair lifts and a few buttons including a 10 minute one to the best blues. Lovely tough red down to the bottom can get very icy though. One café at the midway is run by idiots and would be avoided if any other choice. The hotel is clean and the food is still good, Judy and the other staff are lovely, friendly and accommodating, Cor is a grumpy old bugger sometimes who has a habit of making you feel he’s doing you a favour by letting you stay there. Ski hire on site is a bit over priced but convenient and the equipment is not great, better hire in the village. Rooms are fine, always clean, basic but comfy enough. Do not book in winter if you are elderly or unsteady as the outside areas are never cleared of ice. It’s a skating rink, dangerous and downright lazy, unforgivable really. (See pics) Meal times are strict, breakfast 8-9 means you may miss the ski bus. Also there is no free bus to Chatel, need to get the Columbus for €1.50. Over all a good experience though, The owner just needs to remember he’s in the service industry or go and do something else. One other thing if you book direct he insists on cash only!

Having just stayed with Cor and his family I have to say what a fantastic host and location for our families first skiing trip. From our initial on line enquiry we were dealt with promptly and we were greeted warmly upon our are arrival. The accommodation was perfect, clean well maintained. It's location to the slopes was excellant and the food was large in portion size and fabulous to eat. The hosts could not have been more helpful and Cor himself was polite and helpful when hiring the ski equipment for my girls. His manner was always welcoming and so was all of his staff / family ( even the dog!) Great people, great location, great accommodation and we will certainly come back. Thank you 👍

Just back from a ski short week with my teenage son in the Portes du Soleil. What great time we had, made most magnificent by Cor, Judy and the Dutch (and occasional Belgian!) team. Good quality, great value accommodation, perfectly placed on the local slopes with easy bus access up into the whole domain. Even Cor’s own ski/ boot hire was spot on. Meals were excellent, staff helpful, friendly and fun to chat to. Highly recommend!
