France can be a truly magical place to spend time in winter. It is an incredibly diverse country – each region has developed its own distinct cultural character and heritage, making for a rich and varied collection of Christmas traditions. France lends itself especially well to Christmas – the mountain landscapes of the Alpine regions, such as Châtel, are blanketed by a thick covering of sparkling snow throughout the autumn and winter, and cosy wooden chalets lit by strings of fairy lights with the tantalising scent of mulled wine and raclette in the air are evocative of the festive season.
Known as one of the most sought after ski resort areas in the French Alps, Châtel is about to open another busy winter season. Châtel is also more popular than other ski resorts due to the variety of its ski holiday industry, the outstanding hospitality and facilities. The ski domain “Les Portes du Soleil” is perfect for intermediate skiers who can enjoy plenty of long blue runs and some challenging reds. No matter what you’re looking for there will be a great choice of French ski holidays available in accordance with your price range.
Châtel is a great place to enjoy the festive season through the “The Châtel Christmas” event starting from December 22nd to December 26th – twinkling Christmas lights, traditional Christmas markets and delicious regional food are wonderfully evocative, and make for an unforgettable family-friendly Christmas.
Come and enjoy an incredible Christmas dinner in the warming village of Châtel! The traditional Christmas menu in France offers dishes like turkey, capon, goose, chicken and boudin blanc, a delicacy similar to white pudding. Another festive favourite is la bûche de Noël, or Yule log – a delicious log-shaped cake made of chocolate and chestnuts, harking back to the pagan tradition of burning a log from Christmas Eve.
