Chatel is nestled high into the Abondance valley at an altitude of 1200m and the routes on offer from Chatel are of outstanding for those who wish to be challenged physically or those who wish to take in the views. The routes to the south down into Switzerland, head towards such locations as Montreux, Gstaad or Lausanne for example. Further round the mountains and passing through Switzerland, we can pass the famous Col de Forclaz, by passing Glacier Trient and down into Chamonix, now back in France. Those with huge stamina may wish to choose to tackle the Grande St Bernard pass and drop into Italy for example.
The local routes can be elongated from 1 hour to several hours without using a majority of the same roads taking in the Col de Corbier, a favourite stage on the recent Tour de Romandie.
