Built in a traditional chalet style, the resort is pleasing on the eye and the ski slopes have something for all abilities.

The property is well located in a private corner of the Musillon district of Meribel Centre and comes with an in-resort driver service to take you the short distance to the ski lifts, slopes and ski school meeting points at the Chaudanne or to the resort centre.
The open plan living and dining area is centred around a large open fireplace providing a cosy inviting atmosphere where you’ll simply want to sink into an armchair and replay the day’s events. The picture windows provide breathtaking mountain views and the south facing terrace is a great spot to enjoy an early morning coffee with a mountain backdrop or afternoon tea on those spring ski days.

The 6 large suites are all individually designed with all except one having a large free standing ornate bath, perfect for soaking away the aches of the day. Large armchairs, bold colours, panelled walls and Victorian style bathrooms provide a classic, sophisticated and luxurious feel to all of the bedrooms.

For the smaller group or a couple of families, Chalet Caro is proving a real hit, with only a few weeks left available for this coming ski season. New for the 2017/18 season the chalet sleeps 8 in 4 individually designed en-suite bedrooms.
Though modern and contemporary in design the chalet still retains a cosy feel and the log fire in the lounge creates the ambiance of a winter retreat. Why not settle down by the fireplace to a movie with all the family using the chalets home cinema system.

Chalet Valentine you could argue isn’t exactly a new chalet as it has been available to rent in Meribel for several years however it recently underwent a full refurbishment and so we thought it fully deserved a mention.
If you like a classic, traditional chalet but will all the facilities of a modern property and in an exclusive location with exceptional service levels then Chalet Valentine is exactly where you should be booking your next ski holiday.
Located in the exclusive Belvedere area of Meribel this stunning chalet is only 100m from the piste and 300m form the Rhodos ski lift mid station and the ESF ski school. The resort centre is a 10-minute drive and your dedicated chauffeur is available for all in resort transport between 8am and 1pm.

Heading a little around the resort to Meribel Village and you will discover the divine Chalet Cerf Rouge in Méribel Village. Meribel Village has some of the best value catered ski chalets in the 3 Valleys and is an extremely popular destination for families too.
I was lucky enough to enjoy an overnight stay in the fabulous property in December to fully experience the properties location, service and facilities.
Cerf Rouge is actually a large apartment, one of 4 located in a large freestanding chalet. It just 400m from the Lapin ski piste and Golf chairlift. I walked easily in 3 minutes to the resort centre but of course there is a driver service to take you to and from the piste and ski school.
You enter the chalet on the ground level to a shared boot room with heated boot warmers. Once you’ve struggled out of your boots and sighed at the relief that brings then it’s a few steps to the entrance of your very own luxury apartment. Once inside you’ll forget it’s an apartment as it has all the space and characteristics of a standalone ski chalet.
On entering the open plan living and dining room it took me several minutes to take in all of the features of this fabulous room. It’s beautifully designed with contemporary features, unusual light fittings and picture windows providing outstanding mountain views.
I particularly loved the distressed leather sofa which is unbelievably comfortable and the well placed seating that allows you to relax on a warm spring day with the French windows open and soak up those magnificent views.
The main seating area is centred around an open fire allowing the family to gather together and enjoy a cold winters night warming their toes in the comfort of their own home.
The dining area is spacious providing a fabulous space to enjoy your bespoke designed menu prepared by your dedicated professional chef. The chalet has even teamed up with Adam Byatt’s ‘Trinity” restaurant to deliver ‘A taste of Trinity” in the Alps. A culinary delight being delivered to your own chalet table during three weeks this season. If what I’ve experienced form their chalet chef is anything to go by you’re in for a real treat.
The chalet has 5 individually designed stylish en-suite bedrooms, all with their own televisions. The beds are large and very comfortable and certainly provided me with a great night’s sleep. My bedroom also had access to the outside hot tub where I indulged in a glass of wine under a snowy night sky. It really couldn’t have been more perfect.
Availability at Chalet Cerf Rouge for the 17/18 winter season is now very limited with only 5 weeks still available and prices starting from £1,250 per person.
It isn’t just catered ski chalets that have had the monopoly on being launched this season as this year has seen the release of two exceptional self-catered properties located in Meribel Village.
Chalet Queen Mijane was completed in the summer of 2017 and it has certainly turned our heads. I visited the property shortly after completion to get a real feel for this outstanding newcomer.
Queen Mijane is located in a quiet part of the village with the Lapin piste and Golf chairlift being just 400m away. The village centre with it famous bakery is only 350m away and a regular bus service can take you to and from the main resort of Meribel, though a ski drop off/pick up service can be arranged at an extra cost.
This stunning chalet has 6 bright spacious en-suite bedrooms sleeping 10 adults and 4 children. Most of the bedrooms have access to a balcony or terrace providing fabulous mountain vistas.
The large open plan living and dining room has a feature fireplace and large French doors that lead out on to a sizeable terrace with mountain views, a great place to enjoy a peaceful early morning coffee. After a day on the slopes it would be a delight to come back to this chalet, light the fire and settle down with the family for a game of cards on the large coffee table.
The lounge seating is comfortable and ample for all of the family. If someone in your group is a budding chef, then they’ll love whipping up their culinary favourite in the large kitchen with fabulous mountain views. There’s even a well-placed table for friends to gather and watch on whilst enjoying a well-deserved glass of wine.
As if all that wasn’t enough to make this a front runner in the choice of self-catered properties in this fabulous resort, add in an impressive wellness area complete with a good sized swimming pool, relaxation area with comfy seating and a steam room and you really have it all. It’s hard to imagine going skiing when you have such great private facilities.
Prices at Chalet Queen Mijane start from €15,450 a week on a Bed & Breakfast basis with daily housekeeping and an option to add in a chef and driver service at an additional charge.
Our last new release Chalet Fontany is another amazing self-catered chalet in Meribel Village, located just 100m from the Lapin piste and Golf chairlift this chalet really does have an enviable location. There aren’t that many weeks now available to rent this beauty and it’s easy to see why.
This 6 bedroom and 5 bathroom chalet sleeping 12 is a very welcomed addition to our portfolio and it was a pleasure to visit the property in the summer of 2017.
The top floor of this chalet is where you’ll find a spacious lounge area with double height ceilings and picture windows providing some beautiful views of Meribel. A log burning feature fireplace provides a cosy feel and there is ample space for family and friends to gather together and relax whilst recounting the stories of the day.
The kitchen is modern and a cook’s delight. A breakfast bar allows for friends to sit and chat whilst watching over the cooking process and a large dining table is the perfect spot to gather and enjoy meal times together.
There is a flat screen TV in the lounge but for those wanting to disappear and immerse themselves in a movie there is an additional funky cinema room perfect for escaping the outside world. If you need to ease the aches of a day skiing, then the sauna and outdoor hot tub will be a much-deserved treat.
