Overview

About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, balcony, Free wifi, parking - balcony with view

The apartment is on the 5th (top floor) of a recently renovated residence in the spa town Brides Les Bains. Only 300m from the town centre 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 a generous 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. There is a large balcony with seating for 8 and lovely views of the mountains.

The apartment sleeps 6 adults comfortably but we can accomodate a maximum of 8 ( by using the sofa bed or travel cot) if some guests are children.

The apartment is well equipped for a self catering holiday with many extras that you may not always find in a rented apartment including our own unlimited free wifi for our guests. We also have a private parking space in the underground garage.

The kitchen is well equipped with microwave, a separate large (52 litre) oven, 4 ceramic hobs, toaster, kettle, coffee maker, dishwasher, large fridge and plenty of kitchenware to self cater for 6-8 people.

In the lounge you will find a large wall mounted TV with DVD player. The TV is 'SMART' allowing guests to make use of netflix, utube etc. French TV channels are also available. There is also smaller TV and DVD player in the bedroom. A selection of Dvds and boardgames are also available.

There is a shared indoor swimming pool with an adjacent hot tube that is free for guests to use. The Intersport ski rental shop situated in the residence makes hiring ski equipment very convenient and our guests benefit from discounted prices.

Fresh bread and croissants and are sold in reception every morning throughout the winter season. The closest restuarant is just 100m away.

We have a local English couple (French speakers) who manage and clean the apartment and they are there to help you should any emergencies arise - contact details will be supplied when you book. They can supply extra cleaning, linen and many other services if requested. They can also arrange a food and or wine pack to be in the apartment on arrival on request.

We have negotiated various discounts for our guests: the Inter-sport ski hire shop situated in the residence will give you a 40% discount off equipment hire and there is 5% off lessons with 'Magic in Motion' & New Generation ski schools in Meribel.

We can also arrange for discounted ski passes to be purchased before you arrive - these will be waiting in the apartment for you when you arrive. All details 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 when you book and pay your deposit. You can therefore arrive as late as you like with no fear of not getting in!

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.

The Olympic Centre in Meribel has an ice rink, Olympic size pool with kids pool and slides, and crèche facilities. All just at the top of the Gondola from Brides Les Bain. Meribel itself also offers an impressive choice of Apres-Ski, cafes, restaurants and shops. There are free shuttle buses up to Meribel one evening a week (look on ski.Brides-les-Bain website for up the up-to-date time table).

The Three Valleys weekly has in previous seasons alos covered a day in La Plagne or Tignes (though please check this with the ski pass office, to ensure it is valid for the current season).

Brides Les Bains is also famous for its spa and thermal bathing facilities. In the summer it is as lively as in the winter and is a great base to explore the Alps (walking, mountain biking, horseriding, white water rafting, kayaking etc). It is a very pretty town with a central central river, lots of lovely shops, bars and restaurants, but without the high prices of the rest of the three valleys.

About Suzanne Dytham

We live in Hertfordshire with our 3 children. Owning a family holiday home in the Alps has been a dream that we fulfilled in 2007. We love to ski as a family but since owning our apartment have also discovered how much the Alps has to offer in the Summer. If you choose to stay in our apartment we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Suzanne Dytham purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Suzanne Dytham chose Brides-les-Bains

After many family holidays in the 3 Vallees we discovered the pretty spa town of Brides les Bains and loved the ease with which we could get to the slopes of the 3 Vallees by either Gondola or car. With a growing family we wanted an apartment that was big enough for an enjoyable family holiday rather than some of the more ‘petite sized’ accommodation we have encountered in the past. We were fortunate enough to buy one of the best apartments in the residence – 2 bedrooms, top floor, with a beautiful mountain view.

Unlike many ski resorts, Brides continues to be a popular holiday destination throughout the year and is a great place to explore the Alps in the spring and summer.

What makes this apartment unique

Brides les Bains is an excellent value base from which to explore the 3 Vallees. It is far more reasonably priced than the rest of the area for pretty much everything – whether it is ski hire, a baguette or a cup of coffee !

If you have stayed in Residence Cybele before, you will find that our apartment is better equipped and benefits from many personal touches that other apartments don't have. We are also one of the few apartments to have installed our own WIFI connection.

We usually drive to Brides as it is only 8 hours from Calais so the journey can be completed in one day.

if you don't enjoy driving, you can get the Eurostar from London St.Pancras to Moutiers whch is only a 15 minute taxi trip away from Brides.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Much enjoyed late summer week in this delightful spa town and winter sports

resort. This apartment in Brides Les Bains is convenient,

well maintained, clean and well equipped, with superb views over the valley

and mountains from the large balcony (Al fresco eating!). The apartment's

Comfortable, well-equipped, spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

We found the apartment well equipped, in great condition and with plenty of room for a family of 5. The owner was extremely helpful and the on-site manager was at the end of the phone if we needed anything. What was crucial on a ski holiday was that the beds were very comfortable so we all slept well. We used the ski hire shop within the apartment block and found them very accommodating and helpful. Overall we had a wonderful ski holiday and we would recommend staying in this apartment.

Owner's Response: We are pleased to hear that you had such a great ski holiday and found the apartment comfortable. We are also a family of five and the generous size of the apartment, compared to many properties in the region, was one of the many reasons we chose it. Thank you for your review.

Perfect, clean and comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was just what we were looking for - we had stayed in Residence Cybeles before but this apartment has some extra and home comforts that sets it apart from the standard apartments. We really appreciated the curtain separating the bunks which gave our children some privacy. The apartment was spotless, very fresh and well looked after. The owner was a pleasure to deal with, and she took the time to track us down and reunite ur daughter with a phone we thought she had lost. Having key lock access was a real bonus as we were not tied to arriving at the set times when the main reception was open (a bonus in the ski season when the changeover traffic is unpredictable) . We would definitely recommend and stay again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review - it's lovely to hear that the personal touches we have added to our apartment sets it apart from others. We have tried to make it a 'home from home' and also added our own WIFI which guests can use. I am glad we could return your daughter's iPhone to her. We would be delighted to have you return in the future.

Large, comfortable apartment in Brides

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. The apartment is large and comfortable, with a well-equipped kitchen and a lovely balcony with great views that is a sun-trap all morning. The 'commute' to Meribel takes about half an hour in the gondola, which starts running in good time to get up to the main slopes for the opening of the main lifts and for lessons.

Brides is a really lovely little place with some really nice places to eat. We did most of our shopping at a hypermarket on our way over, but the local Spar is really well provisioned.

Great accommodation in Brides les Bains

  • 5 of 5

Great accommodation, we booked for 6 adults. Therefore, the sleeping arrangements were spot on with the two off bunk beds, sofa bed and double room with en-suite. Likewise the additional shower was much appreciated to allow for quick turnaround (more time at the après ski!). Host was faultless, no question / query was too big or too small. Information provided by host was also super. Kitchen had ample appliances, glassware, crockery and cutlery. I’ve already enquired about next year...

Another great stay in Brides

  • 5 of 5

This was my fourth visit to this apartment in Brides which I guess says quite a bit.

A lovely clean apartment with everything you might need for stay during the skiing season.

There is a baker in the foyer who sells lovely croissants and bread at a very reasonable price.

The views from the apartment are magnificent.

There is a regular reliable free shuttle bus to the gondola station which saves an uphill walk in boots with skis!!

I will be coming back again next year.

Superb location in lovely village, stunning view

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, clean, well equipped apartment. Comfortable beds. Close to everything you need. The best pizza place and pub crawling distance from the apartment, with lovely fun atmosphere and really lovely staff.

The swimming and hot tub are very handy for the kids.

From December to April, Brides is part of the famous Three Valleys Ski resort - the largest linked ski resort in Europe which also includes the highest Ski resort of Val Thorens and the chic resorts of Meribel & Courcheval.

In the summer, there also is plenty to do as the Alps becomes a summer playground of activties. Brides itself is beautiful with a river running through the town and two parks. Other activities in the area include hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, horse riding, golf, paragliding, high wire trail. There are a number of festivals in the area throughout the Spring and summer.

The sports cente in Meribel offers an olympic size indoor pool, bowling and ice skating. The new Aquamotion centre in Courcheval offers indoor and outdoor pools, water slides and even a climbing wall.

There is even summer skiing on the glacier at Val Thorens and Lake Annecy is only an hour away by car.

From April to October, Brides is the ideal place to take slimming cures and the apartment is close to the top class Thermal and Spa centre.

Travel:

Whether you travel by aeroplane, train or car, Brides is accessed via the town of Moutiers. Self Drive - 9 hours approx from Calais. Airports - Chambrey 83 km / 1 hour approx, Grenbole 112km / 1 hour 15 mins approx, Geneva 168km / 2 hours approx, Lyon 188km / 2 hours approx Train to Moutiers - there are some direct trains from London St.Pancras in the ski season or change at Paris (from the Gare du Nord to the Gare du Lyon).

Skiing:

Brides les Bains is linked by a ski gondola to Meribel centre ( the very heart of the Three Vallets) so a car is not necessary. However, if you have a car it is easy to drive up to Meribel where there is free parking available. We can advise you on the best place to park based on the dynamics and ski ability of your group.

Childcare :

Have young children that don't want to ski all day ? We can advise ski schools and on a private nanny company who can either look after young children all day and/or collect children from ski school and take back to the apartment for the afternoon.

Shopping :

There is a 'Spar' supermarket in Brides which can cater for all your needs. Also, there is a large 'Super U' supermarket 10 minutes drive away on the Moutiers road which is very good value.

Looking for more than one apartment ? I work closely with 2 other owners with similar apartments in the same residence so we can accommodate groups.
