Apartment in Brides les Bain, The Three Valleys

Overview

Property

Updated: 30-Nov-2016
Beautiful, modern, homely, spacious apartment. 6th floor, FREE WIFI, balcony.

The apartment is just 300m from the centre of Brides Les Bain and 600m from the Gondola, which gives direct access to Meribel and the whole of the three Valleys - the largest ski area in the world. The apartment is massive 56m2 which includes a large living and dining area, kitchen, one double bedroom (King size bed) with ensuite shower room, one bunk room, one bathroom with bath and shower and a separate toilet. There is a cabin area with bunk beds in the hallway, this is a cosy but spacious area separated by a curtain for privacy.

The sofa bed coverts to 2 full size single beds, with good mattresses that can be put together or separated. The kitchen is well equipped with microwave/oven, an additional large (52 litre) oven/grill, 4 ceramic hobs, pressure cooker, toaster, kettle, coffee maker, dishwasher, large fridge and more kitchenware than you will need to self cater for 6-8 people. A recent addition is a good quality washing machine. The apartment Sleeps 6 comfortably but can accommodate a maximum of 8, with 2 people sleeping in the living room area. Free underground parking is provided, with easy access to the apartment lifts for unloading. FREE UNLIMITED and very reliable WIFI in the apartment (serves only our apartment) also Satellite TV with endless English and French Channels and large 32 inch screen. Fresh croissants and bread are sold in reception every morning throughout the winter season. There is a large balcony with seating and stunning views across the mountains.

We have now had the apartment for 4 years and have made many improvements and additions. If you have stayed in any Les Cybeles apartments before ours has many extras and advantages.

We have tried to keep additional costs to a minimum, secure underground parking is free, WIFI and Satellite TV are free. The apartment is equipped with everything you need. You can bring your own towels and bedding, or hire from us at just the cost for laundering. Duvets (1 king size, 6 singles), blankets and pillows are supplied. We supply tea, coffee and sugar . In addition soap, shower gel, cleaning materials, washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets will all be in the apartment. All linen you have ordered will be in the apartment so you don't need to queue at reception. There is plenty of storage space and lots of hooks for drying wet ski clothes. If you order ski passes, these will also be waiting for you in the apartment so make your first day as easy as possible.

The swimming pool and jacuzzi are free and there is a sauna and games room.

We have negotiated various discounts for our guests: the very convenient ski hire shop in the residence will give you a 40% discount , and 5% off lessons with 'Magic in Motion' ski school in Meribel. All details when you book.

Three Valleys Ski passes can be ordered in advance with a 5% discount and will be waiting for you on arrival. We can also arrange a food pack if you need.

We have a local English couple (French speakers) who manage the apartment locally and will help you if needed, contact details will be supplied when you book.

Keys will be in a key safe outside the apartment, including a fob to open the underground garage. You will be given a security number for the key safe once we have received your final payment. You can therefore arrive as late as you like with no fear of not getting in!

A car is helpful in the summer, but for the winter season everything you need is close by. The gondola is 600m away; a 10 minute walk or there is a ski bus which runs from the bottom of the drive every 15 minutes which goes directly to the gondola. All the amenities of Bride Les Bain are less than a 5 minute walk. If you have a car there is an enormous 'Super U' supermarket a few minutes away on the Moutiers road which is very good value. Without a car it would be worth a taxi trip to stock up on food for the week if you are self catering as it is much cheaper than the local small super market.

Brides-les-Bains in the Savoie region is a genuinely all-year-round resort village. It is part of the 3 Valleys, height 600 m and connects to the ski slopes by gondola located only 600 m from the apartment which takes you to the Meribel ski runs, and from there you have access to the whole of the three valleys. Brides-les-Bains is also famous for its thermal spa and bathing facilities dedicated to weight loss and muscular or joint problems. The unique 1500 m2 spa for your after ski, or summer relaxation features hammam (Turkish steam baths), sauna, body care and a relaxation room. The Spa makes the town ideal if you are a mixed group of skiers and non-skiers.

In the summer Brides les Bain is as lively as in the winter and is a great base to explore the Alps (walking, mountain biking, horse riding, white water rafting, kayaking etc). It is a very pretty town with a central river area, lots of lovely shops, bars, cafes and restaurants, but without the high prices of the rest of the three valleys. There is an excellent market every Wednesday in the summer months. Within a 5 minute walk of the apartment you will find a post office, chemist, doctors surgery, numerous and varied shops, bars, cafes and restaurants. Also a disco and casino! There is an excellent, good value pizza restaurant within 2 minutes walk of the apartment. Bride Les Bain is an incredibly pretty and friendly little town, with a beautiful central river area and everything you need for both a winter ski holiday and summer activities or Spa.

The Three Valleys, in the heart of the French Alps has rightly earned its name as the largest integrated skiing area in the world. 330 marked ski-slopes offer a total of 600 kilometres of pure skiing enjoyment. Thanks to around 180 ski-lifts, the ski-slopes (between 1300m and 3200 m) are reached quickly and easily, including glacier areas. The enormous infrastructure of ski-runs and lifts connects not only the large ski stations at Val Thorens, Les Menuires, Meribel-Mottaret and Courchevel with one another but also the up-and-coming smaller skiing locations at Saint Martin and La Tania.

The Belleville valley, with the ski stations St. Martin, Les Menuires and Val Thorens, the Courchevel valley with its tiered landscape districts of Courchevel 1300, 1550, 1650 and 1850 are all connected together with the centrally situated Méribel valley into a massive skiing area. Good Skiers can experience all three valleys of the skiing area in a single day, having the choice of countless ski-runs. However there is something for everyone from easy to difficult runs, so that experienced skiers as well as beginners can enjoy the three Valleys.

Apart from the best skiing conditions, the area is also excellent for snowboarders. There are several funparks and their own area for boardercross and halfpipe in each of the three valleys. Val Thorens, (2,300m) lures 1,500 snowboarders every December from across the whole world to the legendary Boarderweek, with competitions, concerts and numerous events. Skiers are also offered extra variety with countless mogul runs, endless deep-snow slopes, demanding tours and the possibility to go heli-skiing. Cross-country skiers are well catered for with 118 kilometres of well marked trails. In addition there many snow-shoe treks on marked routes of different lengths and difficulty levels.

There are four different toboggan runs, which may also be used at night, The Tête Ronde toboggan run in Val Thorens, the highest run of its kind in Europe is 6 kilometres long; it starts at a height of 3000 metres, and ends at 700 metres. A journey that takes approximately 30 minutes. Other toboggan runs – including one for inflatable toboggans, amongst other things - can be found in Courchevel and Les Menuires.

The Three Valleys weekly pass covers a day in La Plagne (though check this with the ski pass office, to ensure it is valid for the current season). There are free shuttle buses up to Meribel every wednesday evening (look on ski.Brides-les-Bain website).

There are many ski and boarding schools in Meribel, including ESF but also several English schools. The Olympic Centre in Meribel has an ice rink, Olympic size pool with kids pool and slides, and crèche facilities, All literally just at the top of the Gondola from Brides Les Bain. Meribel offers endless more opportunities for Apres-Ski, cafes, restaurants and shops.

About the Owner

We bought the apartment in 2012 year, after years of looking for somewhere that we could use summer and winter, and that was large enough to accommodate our now adult-sized children. Most of the apartments we saw were claustrophobic and tiny, this is quite different. We fell in love with the location, the space, the views and the peacefulness of the place. I would live there all year if I could!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Having stayed in a number of apartments at the Residence Cybele over the last five years we found this apartment had a lot more facilities and nice little touches that the others did not. Going directly to the owner also helped us have a weeks skiing and snowboarding on what most would regard as a very tight budget for this type of holiday

A lovely well cared for apartment

  • 5 of 5

Sally's place in Brides les Bain is very well maintained and supplied with everything you need. Lovely details like nice hand soap and lotion in the bathrooms and little shelves by all the beds for putting glasses.The kitchen is well stocked and everything is in good condition.

We are a family of four and we stayed there with our nanny. The sleeping layout is perfect for us. The nanny slept in the small room and our six year old boy especially loved sleeping in the bunk bed. The view is extraordinary, being on the top floor is great for the view. We used the ski shop in the building which was very convenient and friendly. The pool was nice for the kids and not crowded at all if you go early. (unfortunately for adults the jacuzzi is not set at a very hot temperature) Having a parking space in the garage is convenient as the spaces in front were always full.

Sally was always responsive to our questions and even provided the shuttle bus timetable to catch the shuttle to the gondola! Some nice restaurants just down the street as well.

We definitely would return again.

Stunning well equipment, comfy home from home!!!

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we arrived at the apartment we where wowed!! Having stayed in various areas of the Alps in numerous apartments, this one at first glance was by far the most spacious, doors seemed to lead to more doors and more space!! After the initial inspection ( and finding out already sorted lift passes, thanks Becky) we realised just how well equipped, clean and homelike the apartment was, it has everything you could possibly need on a holiday! Kitchen was fab and well equipped and the addition of the counter top oven is a brilliant one. Everything was thought of even down to plug adopters , which we had bought but only because no one over supplied them in their apartments! English and French Tv as well as a DVD player etc. From booking to sorting out any queries Sally the owner is incredibly quick to answer and there propert manager Becky also, who is local to the apartment. She can help sort lift passes etc for your stay saving your time for the important stuff!! The apartment is about 5-10 mins to walk to the Olympic lift that goes directly into Meribel, which opens into the three valleys ski area, which is massive!! Never hardly did the same run twice and we were out all day for 6 days!! it takes about 20 mins on the lift but what a pretty journey, it's actully quite relaxing! Brides Les Bains itself is such a nice village, friendly and relaxed and the apartment is a 5 min walk from it all. There is a small spa in the town but we found it best to go to the Super U supermarket which is a 5 minute drive back towards moutiers, we like to cook and this had an great fresh ingredients etc. There is also an amazing bakery and deli style shop in the town stocking lovely local honey and cured meats. So in short ,basically we are booking again for next year!! And we've only been back a week!! I think that says it all!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you; what a lovely detailed view. We will be more than delighted to welcome you again next year. I agree; The newly-refurbished Super U is a bonus. Usually supermarkets in ski areas are expensive, but this is well priced with everything you need and stocks an abundance of lovely fresh produce.

There are several 2 bedroom properties in Les Cybele for rental. They are amazing value; large, light and airy, but I really wanted to make ours stand out from the rest so we have added lots of extras to improve your stay and make the apartment homely and inviting, I think we have thought of everything you may need.
