We were a party of 10 of mixed age groups and stayed the week of New Year 2014. Our hosts Matt and Sophie from the moment we arrived could not have been more welcoming or accommodating and were wholly professional (with a light touch) throughout our stay. The chalet was impeccably clean and we had delicious an... + more

Fantastic stay at Chalet Ecureuil! The hosts were warm, friendly and accommodating and the food they produced was lovely. The chalet was in an excellent location with brilliant facilities...especially the hot tub! But most importantly....O'Sullivans was only across the road! Would highly recommend... + more

Lovely chalet, really nicely decorated, very cosy and never any shortage of hot water. Food was fabulous and the hosts excellent, they really looked after us and the chalet. Very comfortable beds too but could have done with some hooks for hanging ski stuff as not a lot of space or storage. Location was fine wi... + more

We enjoyed a week of good company, good snow and good weather at Chalet Ecureuil. Dave and Sarah were attentive, welcoming and friendly hosts who provided good food (including adapting the menu to suit my wife's dietary requirements), good wine and a spotless chalet for us to enjoy. However, we think that the l... + more

Meribel Chalets centre

Meribel is a large and scattered resort, don't be confused, there are many smaller villages such as Raffort, Chandon and Les Allues, upto 6kms away, from the centre. This chalet is located in the centre, however the centre does not mean that the shops, bars and main lift area are all on your doorstep. All our chalets are located all round the resort centre, and only a ten minute or less walk to the shops and bars.

The main lift area is slightly beyond this and although you could walk, there is no need as we operate a minibus service. The chalet is three floors over a ground floor, which at the front is a small fromagerie, selling the best of local cheeses. Set back slightly from the road, the chalet is real town centre. If you are looking for something that is a short walk from everything then this is the chalet for you.

Our minibus service means that one of our drivers will take you from outside your chalet down to the main lift area and ski schools in the morning, its approximately a four minute ride, at the end of the day you can text your driver for a collection home, even from the Rond Point. It is less than a five minute walk to the shops and bars of an evening.

This package holiday to Chalet Ecureuil in Meribel & Mottaret, France departs Saturday 6th January 2018, 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 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.

Meribel's location is tricky to beat, slap bang in the centre of the mammoth Three Valleys ski area. British made and largely Brit run, it's a destination we flock to year after year for a homely atmosphere in a good looking resort with more than enough pistes for a week (or three). It's made up of a huddle of gorgeous hamlets, built in traditional wood and stone and surrounded by thick woodland. The main area is Meribel Centre (usually known just as Meribel). A trad alpine village with choc-box chalets, th...
With three beginner areas known as ‘Zen Zones' plus some good greens to practice on including Le Foret, Altiport and the Cool Moon area (carefully planned out so you can practice at your own pace in quiet surroundings), Meribel's one of the best ski resorts to learn in. If you're skiing with little ones there are fantastic ski schools and child-orientated areas, including animal sculptures scattered around the trees. Moon Wild is a special area where children can learn about local wildlife as they enjoy the s...
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...

"New year success"

Miranda Mcwhirter
5/ out of 5
We were a party of 10 of mixed age groups and stayed the week of New Year 2014. Our hosts Matt and Sophie from the moment we arrived could not have been more welcoming or accommodating and were wholly professional (with a light touch) throughout our stay. The chalet was impeccably clean and we had delicious and varied food of a high standard. The hot tub was a great hit (if over complicated) and the chalet is compact but had all we needed. We suggest more hooks on the backs of doors and more hangers in the wardrobes. The door to door service is a great selling point. All the drivers were similarly charming, upbeat and eager to help in any way.

Lovely chalet, really nicely decorated, very cosy and never any shortage of hot water. Food was fabulous and the hosts excellent, they really looked after us and the chalet. Very comfortable beds too but could have done with some hooks for hanging ski stuff as not a lot of space or storage. Location was fine with the transfers or ski bus but the late night bar across the road not so good, otherwise would have been 5*.

"A wonderful week skiing with friends in Meribel"

We enjoyed a week of good company, good snow and good weather at Chalet Ecureuil. Dave and Sarah were attentive, welcoming and friendly hosts who provided good food (including adapting the menu to suit my wife's dietary requirements), good wine and a spotless chalet for us to enjoy. However, we think that the lounge/dining area was a little cramped for 10 adults and the bedroom sizes were modest, although this didn't spoil our stay in the chalet.
