Meribel is undoubtedly one of the world’s best ski resorts – apart from being right in the centre of the massive Three Valleys ski area and one of the highest and most extensive in Europe the resort has an extensive après ski scene and thriving nightlife, as well as plenty of activities off the slopes and a charming main village with plenty of shops and restaurants. There is also a vast array of catered chalets in Meribel to choose from.
Visitors tempted here by the resort’s reputation and snow record have a fantastic choice of accommodation with almost 100 catered chalets in Meribel to choose from, scattered across the different villages. From simple apartments with basic catering to luxurious, top-of-the-range chalets with exclusive chefs and tailored menus, there is a catered chalet in Meribel to suit every budget and skier.
Catered chalets in Meribel: A chalet that has it all.
The Chalet Bambis really is an all-round player in the league of catered chalets in Meribel. Sleeping 8-10 people, this characterful chalet boasts a ski in/out location (rare in Meribel) as well as being located only 150m from the centre of town. If this is not enough, there is also a shared driver service between 8am and 10pm for guests to make their way around resort comfortable and quickly. Four of the five bedrooms are fully en-suite, and there is also a sauna in the chalet to relax in at the end of the day. A high standard of food and service can be expected, with a cooked breakfast to start each day, full afternoon tea and then four course dinner with complimentary wines, beers, and soft drinks, plus coffee, port and chocolates to wind down the evening. No travel is included with this chalet (Alpine Answers can help to arrange flights and transfers) but childcare is available on request in this chalet.
Catered chalets in Meribel: A chalet that is great value for money.
The Chalet Petite Silene is primarily notable for its fantastic value for money, especially in Meribel. With four en-suite twin/double bedrooms this contemporary chalet is spacious and very comfortable. Located just 100m from the centre of Meribel and 300m from the ski slopes, the location is ideal for families and groups who prefer convenience and ease of access. There is a small outdoor hot tub and sauna which are great additions, and the food is of a good standard without being fussy (wine, beers and soft drinks are all included). Again no travel is included, but for between £600 and £700 per person per week the Chalet Petite Silene is an extremely well-priced catered chalet in Meribel – we suggest that you snap it up before anyone else does.
Catered chalets in Meribel: A chalet that is perfect for children.
When you have little ones in tow on a ski trip, the main concerns when choosing a chalet tend to include location, childcare, and being well-looked after as adults once the children are asleep. The Chalet Ardour fits this bill perfectly; the operator is well-established in Meribel and provides excellent crèche and private nanny facilities to its clients, with ski school runs, children’s lunches and high teas, toys and equipment and babysitting all very well organised. On selected weeks of the season childcare is free (subject to availability), which can make a sizeable difference to the overall cost of a holiday as well as removing the hassle from arranging independent childcare and ski crèches. The Chalet Ardour itself sleeps up to 10 people in five en-suite bedrooms, and is just 200m from the ski slopes and centre of town. For the adults, the delicious food and complimentary wines, beers and soft drinks alongside the outdoor hot tub and spacious, double-height lounge with log fire, should make for a relaxing week away.
Catered chalets in Meribel: A chalet with flexible catering.
Sometimes on holiday, especially on a ski holiday, you just want to relax and enjoy a meal in the comfort and privacy of your own chalet, whether cooked by yourself or your chalet host. Sometimes, however, you want to try the local Savoyarde specialities or that exclusive new restaurant that everyone is talking about. The Chalet Etoiles allows its guests to do just this; breakfast and afternoon tea are included daily but the evening meal is completely flexible at £25 per person per night. This is ideal for skiers who like to mix things up a little, catering-wise, and who aren’t quite sold on the idea of a fully catered chalet in Meribel. This modern chalet-apartment is less than 100m from the nearest piste and has private parking for 2 cars as well as a heated boot room and TV den, so would work well for a self-drive semi-catered holiday as well as a fully catered option.
Catered chalets in Meribel: A chalet where ‘the sky is the limit’.
One of the most exclusive and expensive catered chalets in Meribel is the stunning Chalet Brames, a wonderful property tucked away in private grounds yet just 150m from the main lift station. Deserving of its 6 stars on the Alpine Answers website, this six bedroom luxury chalet has a large garden, private office, cinema suite, billiard room, extensive spa with hammam, ice plunge pool, massage room and outdoor hot tub, and not one but two chauffeured 4 x 4 vehicles at the beck and call of guests. The quality of catering is extremely high, with a professional chef to create exquisite meals suiting the party’s tastes and preferences, daily champagne and canapés, carefully selected wines from the extensive cellar, special children’s lunches and dinners, and an open spirit bar to top it all off. All of this comes at a price, ranging from £1,600 to £5,600 per person per week excluding travel, but if money is no object then the Chalet Brames is definitely ‘The One’.
