Make the most of your stay in our hotel to discover the top local attractions! After wandering the streets of Châtel and exploring the region's natural heritage (Super Châtel, Lac de Vonnes, col de Bassachaux), head towards La Chapelle d'Abondance. Located in the Chablais massif, this traditional resort enjoys a stunning location at the heart of the beautiful Abondance Valley, facing the Mont de Grange (2433 m). It is also noted for its many gourmet restaurants, naturally featuring the famous local Abondance cheese. The "Fenêtre sur plaine" hiking loop will take you through and around the village, to explore all of its different facets. It will also take you along the banks of the Dranse river, where you can bask in the peaceful atmosphere and try your hand at fishing, or hike back to Châtel and Abondance through unspoilt natural areas to return. Abondance and its history, its abbey, its hamlets, and its chapels - a whole host of discoveries. After meandering for a few kilometres, this lovely mountain river will lead you to another magic spot, where it pours into Lake Geneva.
Lake Geneva, Europe's largest freshwater lake, has a uniquely romantic atmosphere. Located at the foot of the Alps, it offers majestic views which shift throughout the day. The best way to appreciate its 167 km of banks is a cruise. But you can also enjoy it on dry land with a tour of the towns on its banks. Head to Évian-les-Bains, for example, to experience the intoxicating charms of this attractive thermal resort, with its historic hotels, beach, and pleasure port. If you'd like to discover Switzerland, head to Geneva, with its elegant lifestyle. Don't miss the old city and its treasures, the Bains district, the Palace of Nations, the famous Jet d'Eau fountain, and the city's many museums. Culture, too, has its place in the region, with the Gianadda Founation in Martigny and the L'Hermitage Foundation in Lausanne, the heart of the Swiss Riviera. The town of Montreux and Chillon Castle are also not to be missed during a visit to our region.
