Chalet Cannelle is situated on the edge of Châtel, in the hamlet of Suvay. The chalet is set away from the road with a large private garden allowing you to enjoy the peaceful surroundings of the valley, whilst being close to the village.
Suvay is located in between the two alpine villages of Chatel & La Chapelle d’Abondance, just off the D22 road from Thonon to Châtel. Pantiaz and Super Chatel lifts are a 5 minute drive, Linga 10 minutes, and Pre La Joux (Avoriaz link) 15 minutes.
The perfect combination of traditional alpine charm and contemporary style, Chalet Cannelle is a 200 year old renovated farmhouse. Picture vaulted ceilings, a well stocked log fire and comfy sofas as you relax, aperitif in hand, whilst we prepare delicious, locally sourced, meals. Enjoy breath-taking views through the floor to ceiling windows, or step out onto the balconies to enjoy the alpine air of the Abondance valley.
All modern comforts are catered for here from Egyptian cotton sheets in the inviting bedrooms to free Wifi and boot warmers along with the old favourites board games, log fire or snowmen competitions in the private garden.
Prices are per person on a full catered basis, based on two people sharing a room. No travel included.
There are four twin/double en-suite bedrooms, a family suite for up to 4 people, and an additional kids bedroom with four single beds.

Once the legs are weary, the chauffeur service returns you to Chalet Cannelle where home baked goodies and refreshments await.
