A charming village spa chalet in one of Europe's most beloved destinations for outdoor recreation

The Lowdown

Comprising 12 resorts dotted across both France and Switzerland, Les Portes du Soleil is the perfect combination of breathtaking mountain scenery and exciting outdoor activities. Set on the French-Swiss border, the charming village-resort of Châtel offers all sorts of sports and fun, from skiing and snowmobiling in the winter to biking and hiking in the summer, with paragliding, climbing and zip-lining thrown in for good measure.
Headed up by the Macchi family since the 1970s, four-star Hotel Macchi is full of intimacy and personal touches, from the warming cuisine straight through to the cozy décor. Add to that a spa with Ayurvedic massages, mountain views, a sauna and swimming pool plus a roaring fire in the lounge, and you’ve everything you need for a traditional chalet break in picturesque Haute-Savoie.
