The Secret of La Chapelle d'Abondance


This amazing, pretty and friendly village next door to Chatel in my opinion does not hit the headlines as often as it should and falls behind with its presence in the media. This lesser known village is in the heart of the Portes du Soleil and offers a huge amount for tourists, second home owners and locals alike.

The new connection lifts in Chatel have opened up the valley massively, incorporating La Chapelle d'Abondance in its outer perimeters. Chatel taking over the lift management allows for well maintained ski areas, more ski buses and a useful hub for an alternative place to start your day skiing.

Due to its orientation La Chapelle is one of the sunniest villages in the valley. Spectacular views of the surrounding French and Swiss mountains makes for a great all year round destination giving you the opportunity to ski, mountain bike, walk or just while away photo-3the day on the terrace of one of the fabulous restaurants in the village.

The comparison between Chatel and La Chapelle is quite apparent. The hectic building in Chatel will of course bring more tourists and boost the economy allowing for more infrastructure and facilities for both villages. 

With La Chapelle being on average around 20% cheaper than Chatel it makes for a great purchase as the only way the market will go is up. Chatel is the driving force of the valley however we are seeing a change in people's needs and wants rendering La Chapelle a more exclusive area.
