About the Owner

Simon Whitehead and Georgie Hopkins.

Juggling our family and business, we enjoy skiing, walking, mountain biking and most other outdoor activities.

It's a privilege to have secured ourselves a place in Meribel Village and our primary aim is to enjoy a better work-life balance with our young family. We're happy to share our apartment with other guests and you can be assured that you will enjoy the benefits of visiting a spacious, recently renovated, family home rather than a bland, standard-issue apartment.

If you have any questions or need any further information, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Thank you for considering our apartment!

Staying in comfort enjoying the end of season snow

  • 5 of 5

Simon and Georgie's apartment in Grande Casse was as decribed-spotlessly clean, with a well equipped kitchen, very comfortable beds, efficient plumbing and heating, a great view from the balcony, and a choice of 1000 piece jigsaws for bad weather. It was everything we expected and we will happily recommend and rebook if we return to Meribel.

Great ski holiday in perfectly located apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was exactly as described, lovely interior and very spacious layout - the balcony was great too for soaking up the afternoon sun!

It was perfectly located, just a short walk from the centre of the village where we collected fresh bread every morning and enjoyed drinks at the bar in the evenings.

It was really easy to get to the ski lift in the village or catch the free bus to Meribel Centre.

The whole booking process, arriving and departing was really easy - we would love to go back next year!

Lovely clean chalet , cosy and spacious.

All the facilities are there in the chalet to use including WiFi. Very comfy beds and bedding!

Great location , a 5 minute walk to the bottom of the golf lift and a free bus service into the centre which we used alot.

Clean cute and cosy

  • 5 of 5

We had friends staying in chalet Marini which is just next door so location ended up being perfect for us. That aside i can't complain about the apartment. It was clean and nicely decorated. The beds and pillows were really comfortable as well. I thought it was really good value for money if you want to stay in the village and everything about our stay was seamless. Short walk to the ski lift and bus stop as well. Would definitely recommend.

A Lovely cosy apartment in a wonderful village

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is completely as described and has everything you could want to make your stay as comfortable as home. Georgie is contactable at all times so rest assured booking this apartment is as easy and efficient as using any management booking agents and much cheaper too! I loved having laundry facilities with overnight drying. Not having a smelly bulging bag with 3 boys when I returned home was lovely. Whilst it's true you do have to walk up a hill to the ski lift, the locals seem to put their skis in their cars and drive to the free car park so if an early morning short uphill walk is not for you this option is easy and parking always seems available. However it's downhill home and really you are on an active holiday... The location is excellent with a beautiful bakery on your doorstep so those morning croissants are easily purchased. The local bar/restaurant is super friendly and great for a drink before you head off home after a day on the slopes. It also has lovely food and the restaurant downstairs is cosy and welcoming. We would stay again, no question, thanks Georgie.

Location

From the Owner

Having worked in the Meribel valley a number of years ago, we have visited regularly and know the area well. There truly is nowhere better for both winter sports and summer fun! Meribel Village itself is a great location which offers a relaxing break, while still having easy & quick access to the town centre through the free bus service. You can be completely self-sufficient with the fantastic bakery, supermarket, bar, restaurant and ski hire. There is also the fast Golf chairlift from the centre of Village (5 mins walk from the apartment) which takes you directly to the Altiport area of Meribel and you can ski back to Meribel Village on greens and blue runs throughout the whole season.

Facilities

From the Owner

Our apartment was completely refurbished to a high standard in October 2010 and we've maintained it carefully since then. Unlike other properties in Meribel Village, it is within a small residence of around 14 apartments, most of which are owner-occupied. Being on the top (second) floor, the apartment has a significantly larger floor area than most 2 bed apartments (around 60m compared to 35m) and is fully equipped with comfortable beds, bedding and linen for for a truly relaxing break. The south-west aspect offers stunning, sunny views across the Meribel valley which can be enjoyed from the balcony (ideally with a glass of wine in your hand!). There is convenient allocated parking space directly outside the property along with a spacious ski locker on the lower ground floor.
