“This appartment helped make this mountain holiday one our best yet.”
Reviewed 9 September 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We stayed in this property for two weeks while in the alps for a mountain bike/outdoor orientated holiday and found the apartment to be exactly what was needed after a day on the lifts.
The apartment was extremely well equipped, more so than we anticipated, and meant that we really lacked nothing while cooking and relaxing at any point during the stay. All rooms are very large and there is plenty of storage space for all of the 'stuff' you find yourself taking. There were only two us staying but I would happily go back with a larger group of friends as there is plenty of space to sleep six comfortably.
The apartment is a little bit out of the main centre of Chatel but this wasn't a problem for us in any way as the walk up the hill only took 10-15 minutes to get to the main bars, restaurants and shops etc. The walk back is all downhill which helped no end after a few drinks in one of the bars! If you don't fancy the walk there is a bus stop about 150 meters from the door which regularly goes up to the village, these busses also travel between all the resorts main lifts and are well set up to carry bikes and riders if that is what you are there for.
We would definitely use this apartment again, for either a summer or winter holiday and would highly recommended it to anyone looking to stay in the area. We also felt that for the price, even just for the two of us, it represents extremely good value.

“All the convenience of home”
Reviewed 25 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

If you are thinking of a rental in Chatel for your family and don't want to take the kitchen sink with you from home then you can't go wrong with this lovely cozy attic conversion.
The rental looked very much like the pictures, but what you can't see is that the owners leave you with more than most holiday homes - convenience items like bin bags, toilet roll, fairy liquid, salt, pepper etc are left for you, as are plenty of fluffy towels and an excellent stock of kitchenware.
The beds were very comfortable - bed linen is not just boring plain-washed-1000 times, but has been carefully chosen to suit the country cottage theme. The shower is great, TV and internet work well, and the balcony is a nice feature in the summer.
I think this would be fantastic in the winter, but it was very nice in summer - there are walks that start from the cottage, and easy access to many more. Chatel was a 15 minute walk uphill, or a bus ride (if you are organized), but there is a bakery just a very short walk away (2 mins).
We loved the apartment - the owner has a local agent who was fantastically friendly (and English, if you are a poor French speaker).
The ONLY negative I would mention is that if you are very tall you might find the sloping ceilings a bit irritating. The other aspect that was not clear to me before we stayed is that the bunk beds do not have a separate bedroom - guests will go past these on their way to the 2 other bedrooms.

Great clean, well equipped apartment, Fantastic value for money.
Ski locker room and all the home from home luxuries you could wish for.
We will rent this again and would reccomend it.
Would rent a car the next time I go to Chatel but that was nothing to do with the appartment.

“Lovely apartment!”
Reviewed 26 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

This is an extremely comfortable, beautifully furnished & very well equipped apartment which was a pleasure to return to after skiing. There was plenty of room for our party of four, and it had pretty much everything you could need for a self-catering stay. Special mention for the shower - bigger than most ski apartment bathrooms!

The local bakery is a short walk away as is the ski hire shop. It is a bit of a walk to/from the Linga gondola in ski boots etc , but the free ski bus runs regularly along the main road so you can halve the walk if feeling a bit lazy (or just stay on to Pre La Joux....)

Overall a great place to stay in a lovely resort.

“Apartment had everything you need and more ...”
Reviewed 9 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

La tocade provided us with the perfect accomodation for a week snowboarding in chatel.

The apartment was very comfortable with everthing you could possibly need during a weeks holiday. after a day on the slopes it was easy to relax with various entertainment options dvd,wii, internet access and more.

Having been in all the big resorts accross france this was the best holiday and la tocade played a big part.
