Bambis has undergone major refurbishment for Winter 2019/20, giving the chalet a more contemporary feel, along with more spacious bedrooms and an outdoor log fired sauna and hot-tub with spectacular mountain views.
Chalet Bambis is one of the only genuine ski in, ski out chalets in Méribel; this charming, chocolate box chalet is a perfect choice for a classic Méribel holiday.
The living area on the first floor has a new fireplace, where relaxed evenings with a glass of wine can be enjoyed after a hard days skiing. The mezzanine snug area is a perfect spot to curl up on the sofa with a book or to watch TV.
Bambis is in a perfect piste-side location. Parents with small children should be aware that guests need to walk across the piste to access the chalet.
We are delighted to again be partnering with Meribel Nanny Services to provide all of our specialist childcare.
Meribel Nanny Services is managed by owner, who has over 10 years' experience in providing professional childcare services. All of the nannies employed by Meribel Nanny Services are qualified, experienced and DBS checked.
Meribel Nanny Services can provide in-chalet Private Nannies, who can take care of your children in the comfort of your chalet. Your nanny will arrive with toy boxes and plenty of arts and crafts supplies to keep your children entertained throughout the week. A full programme of indoor and outdoor activities is designed to keep children happy, enthusiastic and well occupied on family ski holidays.
Childcare is extremely popular and as such gets booked up very quickly. We would strongly recommend that you enquire about childcare availability at the time of booking your chalet, to avoid disappointment. Our sales team can answer any questions you may have on the service and check availability for you.
They will visit you in your chalet on your arrival day to talk through how the week will plan out and, if required, discuss any preferences or requests.
Meribel Nanny Service’s nannies are also available to book for babysitting on the chalet staff night off, at an additional cost. If you think you might like to book babysitting, we would again strongly recommend that you enquire about availability at time of booking, to avoid disappointment.

*Allergies – Meribel Nanny Services take allergies and dietary requirements very seriously. As they are not preparing the food themselves, they may not be able to cater for all dietary requirements. Please advise them before booking and they can check with the restaurants that your child can be catered for.

Our chefs all have experience in catering for infants and children. Before your arrival, please let us know your children's likes, dislikes, allergies & any preferences that you may have for your children's meals with your chef.
We encourage an early children’s tea between 5.30pm-6pm, allowing parents to enjoy some “grown up” time during dinner. However, if you have booked exclusive use of a whole chalet, we are happy to cater for family meals, which can be organised with the chef prior to arrival. If a shared chalet is booked, we ask that children up to the age of twelve eat at the earlier children's supper.
To allow for a hassle-free family holiday, we ensure there is an ample supply of everything you’ll need, including children’s beds and cots with linen, high chairs, bibs, emergency nappies, toboggans, baby backpacks, CD player, TV/DVD player, books, music & video library, toys & game box, baby listening devices, sterilisers and children’s crockery & cutlery.
All of our vehicles have children’s car seats and are fitted with seatbelts.
We advise that you book ski schools directly so that requirements and abilities can be accurately discussed. However, we are more than happy to give you recommendations so please give us a call to find out more.

Our enviable catered chalet portfolio is the core of the business: all our inclusive ski holidays are renowned for excellent service. When you stay in one of our catered ski chalets, you’ll have access to a team of highly qualified chefs, hosts, drivers and nannies who are available to anticipate your every need.
While each property has its own character and stylish comforts, some features are standard in all of our catered ski chalets:
We are passionate about food and drink. The menus served in our chalets reflect this and we think would be best described as delicious, imaginative and freshly produced. Our resort manager and head chef Ken, will soon be busy training up all the chefs on a variety of wonderful dishes. Here's a quick taster of what to expect:
Our wines are all carefully selected and chosen to compliment the food we serve. Your chalet host will reccommend wines at the start of each meal, however we understand wine is subjective and if you have a favourite! We are delighted to continue to be working with the Languedoc winemaker Paul Boyer. Many of our returning guests will now be very familiar with his superb wines.
An ideal chalet for either a group of friends or families with children who ski, Chalet Bambis' most impressive feature is being able to walk out of the boot room, put your skis or board on outside and slide down to the Chaudanne to catch the first lifts and to ski straight back to the chalet at the end of the day. Bambis also has a fantastic large south west-facing terrace at the back of the chalet, with a new hot tub and log fired sauna, from where you can enjoy the New Year’s Eve fireworks or events at the Stade de Slalom.
