This wonderful chalet sits above Les Castors piste side restaurant and terrace. The base of the Tougnete bubble lift and Truite ski run are both literally outside the front door.
The best placed chalet in Méribel. No ifs, no buts. We always thought our Chalet Boua next door was unbeatable but we've managed to squeeze closer to the base of the Tougnete bubble lift and Truite ski run which are both outside the front door. This wonderful chalet sits above Les Castors piste side restaurant and terrace (don't worry, it only opens for lunch now so no noise in the evenings)
So, unbelievable skiing location and a two minute walk across the piste to Chaudanne and the resort centre bars and restaurants. Inside it's got oodles of character and bundles of space, check out the huge stone fireplace, but frankly the facilities can't really be called cutting edge. Some of the loos aren't en suite (across the hall) and two of the bedrooms share a bathroom. When this property was built no one cared much about modern convenience, just old fashioned ‘hygge' as they say in Denmark, ‘well being' to you and me.
If you choose to swerve the bling, like a little bit of proper Alpine character and are not too fussed about a loo at the end of your bed then this is definitely the home for you. It feels like one of those James Bond huts lost on the mountain with stone walls, wooden ceiling, a roaring fire and lots of fur. Three couples or two families at a squeeze, this the hottest old chalet on the block. Absolutely unique.

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.

Meribel has a special place in many Brit's hearts – not simply because it’s right 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.
