We would like to welcome you to the wonderful Chalet Carnauba, in the picturesque village of Châtel, Portes du Soleil, France. 

Chalet Carnauba is an owner run luxury catered ski chalet in the winter, during the summer offering unique bed and breakfast stays.

 We built and designed Chalet Carnauba, so guests can experience a truly wonderful holiday with attention to detail. We have had the pleasure of working in hospitality for many years. Our aim is to make your stay enjoyable and relaxing.

Chalet Carnauba is a spacious eco-chalet for families, friends and individuals. Offering accommodation sleeping up to 8 guests in 4 en-suite rooms, providing all the modern creature comforts you would expect from a ski chalet.

The chalet is one of the best located catered ski chalets/bed and breakfast in the ski village of Châtel. In an enviable quiet location overlooking an alpine meadow surrounded by evergreen trees with beautiful mountain views and only a 5 minutes walk from Châtel centre.

“Sam and Matt are lovely and very dedicated hosts. The entire chalet was spotless, very comfortable beds. The hot tub was a great plus after a day on the slopes. Will definitely be back!”

Amazing hosts, accommodation, food & overall service

I spent a week skiing with friends & chose Chalet Carnauba for our accommodation. The chalet was spacious, clean & presented beautifully. Sam & Matt were amazing hosts, always accommodating & extremely friendly.

The homemade food was incredible & the details within the menu incredible. (especially the duck breast). Overall, a faultless experience in a picturesque chalet surrounding by amazing company."

10 out of 10!!

My partner and I stayed with Sam and Matt for a week in February. We had an absolutely faultless stay, they were attentive and friendly and we were treated to delicious food every night of our stay, scrummy! 

The transfers to the lifts were extremely helpful although there is a very efficient bus service that stops on the road out side. The town centre is a 5-10 minute walk away and its possible to ski/snowboard back to the chalet if there is enough snow around.

The chalet itself was outstanding and always in immaculate condition. Could not rate this place enough and will definitely be back again!

Alpine Heaven at the Swiss-French Border

We had a short escape for a skiing weekend. I was not expecting that much positives from a last minute decision. Sam and Matt, owner-operator family were very friendly and professional at the same time. Chalet had been brand new, 4 bedroom Alpine House with a living-dining space with a good taste of the fireplace. Decoration, Architecture, in short was everything was great.

Thanks Sam, Math. We would strongly recommend to ski lovers. And will come back for spring, summer to explore the Alpine summer vacation surprises!

Wonderful hosts, amazing chalet!!

Just finished a week here and we loved it! Interior is incredible (think the fireplace was my favourite part!) chalet is super clean and bedroom / en suite were both lovely and spacious. Views of the mountains can be enjoyed throughout thanks to the large windows all around the chalet.

Sam and Matt are wonderful hosts! Lifts to and from the slopes were quick and you can also walk to the nearby town in 10 minutes. The food was delicious - all prepared by a chef who cooked everything from artichoke soup, to Thai green curry, pork belly, Moroccan style lamb, home made ice cream and sticky toffee pudding to name a few!

Thanks for an awesome week, would definitely recommend this chalet, we will be back!

WOW! Five star wooden chalet

Lovely new chalet, tastefully decorated, great rooms with comfy beds, splendid view from the big guest living room with veranda, at walking distance from village. You can easily park here, also a big plus in Chatel. We've had a wonderful time at Carnauba thanks to Samantha & Matt, our hosts. Each morning a lovely breakfast with freshly baked croissants and bread, fruit, juice, cereals etc. Highly recommended!
