Apartment in Les Allues, Meribel, Savoie, Rhone Alpes, France - Situated In A Beautiful Village With Cable Car Access To Meribel And The Three Valleys
The apartment was built in 2000 and is part of a chalet style building which is furnished and equipped to a very high standard. The apartment is situated only 5 minutes walk away from the centre of Les Allues. It has several excellent restaurants, a bar with live music, supermarket/newsagent and ski-hire shop. There is a bubble lift in Les Allues which takes you into the central lift network at Méribel's La Chaudanne. There is also a free regular bus service. Méribel sits in the heart of the Trois Vallées which is one of the largest ski areas in the world. Méribel has 61 ski lifts serving 74 runs. The slopes are well maintained throughout the season with a fleet of piste bashers working all night and with hundreds of snow cannons helping to keep the slopes in immaculate condition. The interconnected area gives access to a further 375 miles of slopes with over 200 lifts serving them with countless off-piste opportunities. Perfect for all levels of skiing with great ski schools.
About the Owner
I live with my wife and three children in Hove, Sussex. We bought the apartment in the year 2000. My whole family loves to ski and the three vallees really can't be beaten for the quantity of ski runs and diversity of slopes. I have never got bored of this part of the alps and have still got many slopes to explore. I have only started renting the apartment out last year so it really feels brand new as it has not been used as much as it could have been over the last 10 years. Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions about the area or the apartment.
Guestbook comments from the owner
'We had a wonderful time as a family staying at your lovely apartment. We found it very Clean and modern and it suited all our needs.' Andy Leader, Ashtead.
'We thought Les Allues was a charming Village and probably the most authentic ski location we have stayed in. We particularly like the Tsaretta Bar in the Village. It was always lively with a great atmosphere. Hopefully we will be back next year.' Jonathan Smith, Clapham.
'Les Allues was a cracking location within the three Vallees. We found it very easy to get around and skiing in the 3 vallees was magnificent. Great apartment as well, everything was nice and clean and suited my wife and two kids perfectly. See you next year I hope.' Ian Ralph, Kingston.
From the Owner
“After many years of skiing in the Three Vallees I discovered the beautiful village of Les Allues and fell in love with it. It is not as large or as busy as the main resorts in the three vallees but is one of the few towns that has kept hold of it's true identity and makes you feel that you are in a traditional French ski resort. I use the apartment a couple of weeks in the Winter and usually a couple of weeks in the Summer. It is very easy to get to Les Allues, I usually drive down in the Summer and fly in the Winter to either Lyon or Grenoble and pick up a hire car from there. Les Allues itself has everything you need from a resort, a few shops, good restaurants and fun bars. A great base for a ski holiday!”

From the Owner
“Obviously Les Allues offers the Skier a cheaper option for accommodation. If the apartment was in Meribel it could be twice as expensive. Meribel is nearer the slopes and has more restaurants and bars but Les Allues is the authentic skiing experience with the charm and atmosphere of a traditional french skiing holiday.”
