Traditional alpine chalet-style apartment

Overview

Property

Updated: 17-Nov-2016
South-facing chalet style rental - 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. Free wifi

Our apartment is a cosy, comfortable and south-facing with a chalet-style interior, large south-facing terrace and uninterrupted mountain views. It has a very convenient central location in the main part of Meribel, just above the center of the resort. All the resort facilities are close and can be reached easily on foot. As there are a number of different satellites ski resorts in the valley, it can be confusing to understand where the apartment is located. However only one Meribel houses the Olympic Park where you will find the Chaudanne ski lifts and the Olympic skating rink - our apartment is 5 minutes from this location. With 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and a very comfortable lounge, the apartment is perfect for a family or a group of friends sharing. Although a car is not necessary to enjoy the resort, there is a car park and also a ski locker. Enjoy the welcoming atmosphere of a real home-from-home; well-equipped and very comfortable at the end of a day on the beautiful slopes of the Three Valley area. Meribel is in the heart of what is agruably Europes largest ski and snowboarding areates are beautifully maintained and snowsure from December through April each year.

What's to enjoy.........: If you lead a very busy life, love skiing or mountain activities in general, enjoy a good night out but might also want to find a cosy spot to curl up in, relax and maybe even spend time looking at the view - our apartment is the right choice. My perfect spot is on the settee, with a cup of coffee, magazine unread on my knees whilst I gaze out of the window at the mountain view opposite. And when I go to bed, I make sure the curtains are open so that I can see the same view as soon as I wake up in the morning. Sound appealing?

The Summer: Meribel in summer is a fabulous activity destination. As well as a lively village with a great swimming pool and water slide, the summer mountain activities are right on the doorstep - mountain biking, paragliding, hiking - as well as a great children's club. For golfers, there is a fantastic 18 hole course and driving range. Mountain bike lovers will be spoilt. You can use the ski lifts to go uphill and have lots of energy left for the 263kms of VTT paths in this area.

The apartment is good choice for younger children. As well as being all on one level, the south-facing terrace is completely enclosed. For older kids who want a bit of freedom - they can walk safely to the shops in the centre of the village and even down to the swimming pool without having to cross any major roads. The free navette bus stops for travelling further afield are also close by.

Golf Details: Golf in Meribel is best described as awesome. The 18 hole, par 70, 5,370m course set on the mountain side is open from May to September. The surroundings are beautiful and the views spectacular. The walk around also prevents a reasonable challenge to the fittest golfer although buggies are available for hire. The course is about 7 minutes drive from the apartment. Also within one hour's drive are the golf courses at Couchevel 1850, and Lake Annecy. Both are also beautiful courses.

Very helpful owners who answered our many questions with accurate information. Spacious with 2 bathrooms that is a real plus. Comfortable, clean and in excellent condition even at the end of season. Lots of extras such as books and games that made it home from home. Great south facing balcony that was a suntrap. Excellent location with short walk to slopes, centre and supermarket.

As described and better

Easy to follow instructions. Perfect chalet for a ski getaway. We had 5 adults and that was about right. Balcony is a nice addition in the spring. Thanks for a lovely week in Meribel and the three valleys!

Fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

From first asking about a rental to getting the security deposit back- the whole process was fantastic. The owners replied very fast to any questions and were very helpful.

The apartment had everything you would need and more for a self catering trip.

It is in a great location and only a short walk to the nearest slope, (walked in snowboard boots and ski boots)

We were a group of 4 adults and had plenty of room, it helps a lot having two bathrooms!

All of the other reviews are accurate and if you decide to stay here you won't be disappointed. We were lucky and had lots of fresh snow when we arrived, but meribel and the three valleys is superb even when there has not been much snow.

We drove and parked our car in the car park, nice and easy to park and get to the ski lockers etc.

We had a great time and will be in touch next year for hopefully another booking.

Very nice apartment in great location.

  • 5 of 5

First time staying here and it worked out really well. Apartment was better that described and an ideal location too.

The apartment had a traditional feel, a big balcony and great views.

It was my first time in Meribel and from afar it's tricky to work out the layout of the place. In the main town (Centre of which is the tourist info office) there are shops and restaurants - down the hill about 500m is the main ski lift area called chaudane where three gondolas and a couple of chairs give good access to the slopes - close to chaudane there are only a couple of (mostly) expensive hotels plus bars and restaurants and very few chalets and apartments.

Up the hill from tourist info is where the bulk of the accommodation is - a switch back road seems to go on for miles all the way up to the airfield.

This chalet is very cost to the centre of town 200-300m up the road so it's a 5 min walk to town but far enough out so as not to be affected by noise.

There's a ski locker in the apartment complex and of you keep your skis there you'll have to walk down the hill to the tourist office where there is an escalator up to a green run which then goes down to chaudane. To come back you can walk he same way or get free navette bus.

We hired a locker at chaudane itself (located under he saulire express bubble) which I'd recommend everyone to do. They can be booked in advance too.

The apartment had everything we needed. The galley kitchen has a dishwasher, oven, microwave and lots of pots and pans so we ate in for about half the night we were there - the spar super market is 3 mins away down he hill and sells fresh bread and pastries (unlike he boulangerue in the centre which ships them up he valley)

There was also the bonus of a separate third separate sleeping space tucked in a the lite hallway between the main bed and and it's bathroom - this meant that each of our kids had a separate space to sleep and therefore less arguing!

There were only four of us in the apartment - I'd say it would take 6 but any more than that and it would start to feel cramped.

The owner, Vari, was very helpful - recommending a taxi firm for transfers and other useful info.

all in all a great stay
