A hot coffee was provided and our boots were taken to the boiler room to be dried. The hotel is very relaxed and the restaurant is excellent, popular with non residents and locals....

Rob, the owner, and his wife couldn't have been more welcoming when we arrived wet and weary after a full days walking in the mountains. The room was very clean and tidy with great balcony overlooking the river....

We stayed for 4 days and you can see why everyone comes back to Chatel! Chatel is a quaint little village where everyone knows each other. Le Renard is a lovely little hotel. The food is outstanding - I would go to the restaurant anyway. If the French eat there then it's got to be a good sign. The bus...

Based near the Linga area of Chatel, we saw this restaurant and thought we'd give it a try. It was great. We returned one year later and it was just as fantastic. There is a lovely atmosphere in the restaurant and the food is amazing. Great presentation and totally delicious. For our money, the best in the area and well...

We only intended to eat at Le Renard one day of our holiday, but the food was so good we had to eat there every day. Good wine and beer and excellent ambience. Get a table by the wood burning fire in the winter to warm up after a days skiing....
