Overview - chalet description - Bellevarde Lodge Merlot description

This is a fabulous chalet for a group of 12. The vaulted sitting room has an open fireplace, floor to ceiling glass with breath-taking views, and the hot tub on the terrace is the perfect place to relax after a day on the slopes.

Merlot is situated right on the edge of the Santons piste, so offers ski in - ski out accommodation with a track leading down to the Olympique lift area from behind the chalet. There's also a shuttle service which operates in the morning and the afternoon to whisk you to and from the piste.

This is a wonderful stone-and-timber style chalet, sleeping 12 guests in six en suite bedrooms and boasts a comfortable living area with open fire, TV, DVD & WiFi. It is fronted with a great sun terrace which boasts a well-positioned hot tub and fantastic views.

Your dedicated chalet hosts will be on hand to ensure your needs are catered for. Each morning they serve up a hearty breakfast; whilst you are out on the mountain they will be preparing afternoon delights guaranteed to make the mouth water. In the evening they will amaze you further with their culinary skills and dish up a 3 course dinner, followed by cheese and coffee and of course accompanied with plenty of red or white wine.

There's a choice of Twin and Double bedrooms, all with en suite bath, hand basin and WC. The four bedrooms on the Second floor all have a balcony.

Meals - food and drink in Bellevarde Lodge Merlot

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 menus are heavy enough to reward mountain exertion yet light and simple enough to leave you grinning not groaning.

All our catered ski 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 Bellevarde Lodge Merlot'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 Bellevarde Lodge Merlot in Val d'Isere, France departs Sunday 29th November 2020, 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.

Ski never-ending pistes and powder, ogle at colossal peaks and cosy Savoie architecture, then end the day with some of the world's most wild and wonderful après ski. Val d'Isere is considered by many to be the best ski resort on earth, and we’re inclined to agree.

In France's Rhone Alp region, Val d'Isere (pronounce it: val de saire/sare/ser) is widely thought of as one of the most brilliant and beautiful ski areas in the world. In keeping with the giddyingly gorgeous surroundings, the resort itself is one of France's prettiest - a huddle alpine hamlets formed from cosy wood and stone chalets. With the original village dating back to the 13th century and a Christmas-card-worthy church steeple at its centre, there’s alpine charm by the bucket load. While dreamily tr...
Skiers in Val d'Isere are schussing in the tracks of some of the world's greatest skiers. Olympic medallists Marielle and Christine Goitschel learned to ski here, not to mention triple gold winner Jean-Claude Killy, after whom the wider ski area is named. As an indication of this place's premier status - the resort has hosted championships including the 1992 Olympics, the World Alpine Ski Championships in 2009 and World Cup events every December. If some of the best skiers in history have learned here, begi...
Famed for its après ski, there's no chance of a dull evening in Val. Living up to its name, you'll experience ‘sweet madness' at the original Le Folie Douce, which brings you some of the best après ski in Europe - including dancers, musicians, raining champagne and much more... Once that closes, Dicks T Bar's a local legend, staying open into the early hours each night. Bananas is another firm favourite, much loved for its crafty cocktails and slope-side location. In Val d'Isere's 90-something restaurants, ...

"Everything we needed and more"

Claire Wells
5/ out of 5
We had been to this lodge 9 years ago and it was better than I remembered. Clean, cosy, welcoming, spacious with comfortable beds and lovely views. Our hosts, Matt & Briony were the icing on the cake: Stunning food enjoyed by adults and kids alike, Welcoming every morning and evening, they were offering helpful suggestions before we needed to ask for a thing. They were fantastic with the kids – clearly experienced with how to talk to kids and make parents feel relaxed! We could not have asked for more. We would dearly love to come back next year but we will be sad if they aren’t here!! I feel they worked very well as a team with their own roles to make us feel relaxed. My only constructive feedback of the holiday is that the hairdryer are so ineffectual. I think it would be better to advertise without hair dryers (I would have bought my own) or upgrade them. All in all 5 star.

"Great stay in Merlot!"
