Good points: the chalet staff and resort manager went out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Sensible flight and transfer times. Great in terms of what was provided for our baby (cot, high chair, change mat, nappies etc.) which made holidaying with an infant relatively stress free. Gorgeous... + more

Great chalet and hosts. Hot tub and cinema room were both amazing. Food and drink were good, although slightly heavy style of menu. Rooms very nice and all ensuite. Living area had plenty of space for big groups. Chalet hosts were lovely and accomodating. Quite a high price for new year week but at other times ... + more

Location - where is Bellacima Lodge

Bellacima Lodge boasts an enviable location opposite Dicks Tea Bar, and only five minutes stroll from the centre of Meribel. The pistes at La Chaudanne are just two minutes away by our Merishuttle chauffeur service.


Overview - chalet description - Bellacima Lodge description

We dreamt up our perfect chalet and our long-standing friend and partner in Meribel, Bernard Raffort, assembled it. We were thinking huge vaulted living room with central fireplace, fabulous views of the pistes, perhaps a hot tub on the large south facing terrace and just maybe a small swimming pool with counter current too. Then we pondered a sumptuous cinema for the odd blockbuster, a billiard room for après-dinner amusement, and … lets go mad, how about a lift for when we felt tired or lazy at the end of the day. We pondered, Bernard built. Bellacima Lodge has it all.

Brand spanking new out-of-the-packet for the 2013/14 season and opposite Dick’s Tea Bar for a spot of après if you can tear yourself away from this fantastic chalet in Meribel's heart. Our dream and Bernard’s pride and joy. Definitely the place to be seen this season.

Bellacima Lodge will be furnished and photographed in November 2013. Photographs shown on this page are intended as a guide only from other chalets in our portfolio from the same developer, and intended to reflect the style and décor of the finished chalet.

Meals - food and drink in Bellacima Lodge

Our Executive Chef is passionate about food and hugely sensitive to the appetite of a hungry skier whilst considering a balanced diet. The new and refined 2014 menus are heavy enough to reward mountain exertion yet light and simple enough to leave you grinning not groaning.

All our holidays include;

  • Continental breakfast with a cooked option on 6 mornings
  • Afternoon tea will be left in the chalet for you to help yourself to freshly made cake or biscuits, bread & jams, selection of teas, coffee and hot chocolate
  • Canapés on the first and last evening
  • 3 course evening meal (6 nights) followed by cheese board and coffee
  • A choice of red and white wine is served throughout dinner
We update Bellacima Lodge's details often, but facilities do change. e.g. some extras listed by the supplier as "free" or included might only be for the first time you use them, or for one time per party, then charged for further use. If any specific feature is essential to your holiday, make sure you ask us to confirm the details of it before you book your holiday.

This package holiday to Bellacima Lodge in Meribel & Mottaret, France departs Sunday 23rd April 2017, for a 7 night stay on a "catered chalet" board basis. A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged. It's not included in the basic price of your holiday and is usually paid locally. For reference, the average charged in winter 15/16 was between 50p and £2 per person, per night.

3 Valleys ski area Excellent ski schools Lively après ski

Meribel has a special place in many British hearts – not simply because it’s slap bang in the middle of the biggest ski area on Earth. A resort for long ski days, ski-boot-stomping après and cosy chalets, there’s a great deal to do and ski here, which is why many of us have been coming back for decades.

As its heart shaped logo suggests, Meribel prides itself in its location at the very centre of the Three Valleys. British made and predominantly British run, it's a destination we flock to year after year for a home-from-home atmosphere with a fantastic range of skiing and snowboarding terrain in a picturesque location. The resort consists of gorgeous alpine hamlets made up of traditional wood and stone buildings and surrounded by woodland. The main area is Les Allues (usually known just as Meribel). A char...
With three beginner areas known as ‘Zen Zones' plus some good greens to practice on including Le Foret, Altiport and the Cool Moon area (specifically located so you can practice at your own pace in quiet surroundings), Meribel is great if you're skiing for the first time. If you're skiing with little ones there are fantastic ski schools and families really appreciate Meribel for its child-orientated sections, including animal sculptures scattered around the trees. Moon Wild is a special area where children ca...
Whether your day on the hill leaves you wanting to relax with a vin chaud, have a pint and play pool, or party the night away, your time off the slopes will be as varied as the days spent cruising the incredible Trois Vallees. It’s said that you haven't experienced après ski here until you've sampled toffee vodka... we say the only real “must do” is Le Rond Point, which is perhaps the most famous après ski bar in the world. Meribel is rightly famous for its night life with a variety of pubs, bars and clu...

"Good points and constructive criticism"

E Smith
4/ out of 5
Good points: the chalet staff and resort manager went out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Sensible flight and transfer times. Great in terms of what was provided for our baby (cot, high chair, change mat, nappies etc.) which made holidaying with an infant relatively stress free. Gorgeous chalet - loved all the facilities. Areas for improvement: check in at Gatwick was very stressful as the Monarch staff were extremely rude and had different information about baggage allowance to that provided by the tour operator. Chalet could have been cleaner. I don't think our bathroom floor had been cleaned for weeks and the kitchen/living areas never looked clean. Food was also disappointing (compared to previous years) which may not be a reflection of the staff's culinary skills but more the menu choices. Also some confusion over what food was available for our baby. The above should be taken as constructive criticism. We will definitely consider holidaying with this chalet company again.

"Beautiful Chalet, excellent service!"

A friend and I stayed for a week in the newly-constructed Bellacima Lodge. We were looked after superbly by Emily and Lorna, who cooked up a storm every morning and evening. Their enthusiastic nature was much appreciated, particularly in the mornings when we were hungover. The duty driver service was prompt, seamless and definitely allowed us to ski/sleep for a lot longer. We also took full advantage of the hot tub and sauna while other guests ordered in DVDs to watch in the cinema room. All in all, a very impressive chalet with superb staff/drivers/managers (one of whom even lent me their ski gloves for one day when I left mine in the van). P.s. We never evens saw the counter-current pool, let alone use it, as we we're having too much fun with the other facilities!

Great chalet and hosts. Hot tub and cinema room were both amazing. Food and drink were good, although slightly heavy style of menu. Rooms very nice and all ensuite. Living area had plenty of space for big groups. Chalet hosts were lovely and accomodating. Quite a high price for new year week but at other times of the year the price would be well worth it and we would definitely return.

"Bellacima a favourite!"

Our party of friends were delighted to stay in Bellacima, especially with such beautiful new facilities. Emily and Lorna should get particular mention for being such charming, accomplished hosts; they got the balance exactly right of catering for our needs and making us feel comfortable. The food was excellent - consistently high standards and the range of menu was spot on. Cakes were delicious! Everything was made easy for us; the group of kids (aged 13-9) felt it was their best ski holiday ever, as did we. This chalet will only get better in successive seasons as it is fine-tuned. A really good Meribel experience.
