Features & Facilities

Chalet Cathay is a thoroughly modern building with many premium features as standard. Our interiors are inviting, functional and, above all, relaxing. The chalet is perfectly large enough to accommodate two to three families, with 270m2 of useable space. There’s plenty of room in the open-plan lounge and dining areas for guests to relax without the feeling of being on top of each other.

Upstairs, the open-plan mezzanine lounge overlooks the main living area downstairs and makes for a great den for children to hang out but still be in earshot of their parents. Outside, the large wrap-around balcony accessible from the lounge is a great space for kids to run around and play in the fresh air while still safely within the confines of the chalet.

We can comfortably sleep eleven guests plus two on a sofa bed in the mezzanine lounge. All our bedrooms have pocket sprung mattresses, with Egyptian cotton linen and towels, plus a choice of feather or polyester pillows to ensure a restful night’s sleep after a hard day on the mountain.

We really do hope we’ve thought of everything you need for the perfect relaxed stay. Find out more about the extras that make Chalet Cathay such a special experience below.

All the furniture in the cloakroom is bespoke and has been custom designed and built for us by a local carpenter. The wrap-around benches have lots of storage below and extra shelving above. There are also plenty of coat hooks and hangers for larger groups, especially those with children. It all helps to keep things tidy and easy to find when everybody comes back in at the end of the day!



After a hard day on the slopes, chill out and relax on our deep, soft leather sofas. There’s no sag with pocket sprung cushions and the extra comfy chaise lounge on the end of the 4-seater is definitely worth fighting over!


The chalet’s underfloor heating provides plenty of warmth all year round but nothing beats the charm of an open fire for winter relaxation in the mountains.

Eating Together

At over 3 metres, our long antique pine Scottish farmhouse dining table has seating for 12 guests. It is the focal point for meals and social gatherings where everyone can be seated together. The table itself is full of character, having hosted lots of fun occasions with food and drink over the years. High chairs for the VIPs of the party can be found in the garage along with the rest of our baby equipment.


The well-equipped kitchen adjacent to the dining area has everything you need, even for the more serious cooks. Catering for a large party of guests is made simple thanks to the ample space to work in and the large amount of storage available throughout the kitchen.

Al Fresco

Even in winter when the sun is out, the wrap-around balcony offers plenty of opportunities to eat outside and immerse yourself in the spectacular mountain scenery that is all around. There is a large outdoor table with seating for eight guests on the main section of the balcony but a more secluded and intimate spot for two can be found around the corner on the other side.

Premium Essentials

Geothermal Heating

The chalet’s geothermal heating system is economical, efficient and environmentally friendly. This means it is always warm and cosy on all three floors, whatever the time of year. Always plenty of hot water too!
