The chalet itself was fine, and the chalet hosts were tremendous. The food was fine, though I’m not sure about the twiddly bits / hors-d'oeuvre which were built up as being special but weren’t really. They bothered to do a turkey on Christmas day though which was nice. Main feedback, and the thing that we d... + more

Lovely chalet, really spacious and big with enough room in the bedrooms. Everyone really liked it! We had a very good cook who produced excellent evening meals, they were so nice we all wanted the recipes of what he’d made! He did nice cakes for afternoon tea, though we didn’t always make it back in time for... + more

Overview - chalet description - Chalet L'ancolie description

The superb Chalet L'Ancolie was built in traditional Savoyard style, in a quiet location, set back and slightly above the main road.

The owner, an expert carpenter, has lovingly done much of the interior wood panelling himself, ensuring a high degree of care and attention to detail, with many delightful features.

The sauna on the ground floor is a perfect way to relax after a day on the slopes and the living/dining-room with its log fire and comfy seating provides a haven in which to unwind.

The resort centre and ski pistes are approximately 10 minutes walk from Chalet L'Ancolie, however our complimentary minibus service whisks you to and from the lifts, morning and afternoons, so there is no need to walk far, except the final 50 metre incline to the ski chalet.

For your added convenience, we can also arrange for a private rental ski and boot fitting service to come direct to the Chalet L'Ancolie.

Piste Picnics

Our Chalet Hotels can also prepare a packed lunch for you on request, at a small local charge. For skiers keen to keep their Euro-spending to an absolute minimum, this is the ideal way to keep your costs down!

Afternoon Tea

The traditional 'welcome home' after a day on the slopes will be laid out for you in your chalet or Chalet Hotel, ready for your return, every day except on the staff's one day off per week. A good cup of tea or coffee is the perfect accompaniment to a delicious slice of freshly home-baked cake and keeps hungry skiers happy until dinner is ready. As an added benefit for guests in our Chalet Hotels, our chefs prepare a selection of cakes for afternoon tea.

Children's High Tea

In Chalets and Chalet Hotels with family guests, High Tea provides children under 13 years with a healthy menu, tailored more towards children's tastes and puréed food is available for infants on request. High Tea is at 5.30pm, and children do not join the main adult-only dinner.

Children's High Tea in Chalet Hotels

New for 2013/14 Season - Families staying in one of our Chalet Hotels may choose to eat separately (High Tea at 5:30pm) or all dine together at the later adult dinner time if children who have received a child discount pay the meal upgrade charge of £39 at the time of booking only

Dinner in Chalets

A tasty and innovative, freshly cooked dinner will be prepared for you six nights per week by your Chalet Host - or by an experienced and professional chef in our larger chalets - and served with a choice of wines. Our four-course adult-only chalet dinners start with canapés and an apéritif, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, and completed by coffee with chocolates to round off your evening.

Your choice of complimentary quality wines is unlimited during the meal service, and freshly chilled water is also of course always available.

Culinary Choice Dinners in Chalet Hotels

A special feature of our Chalet Hotels is a more extensive culinary experience for our guests. With the greater kitchen facilities of a hotel, our professional chefs are able to offer choices of menu at dinner, generally including lighter as well as more hearty options, and always a vegetarian choice for each course. Guests will be asked to choose their evening meals at breakfast for that evening from a varied daily selection.

Our Chalet Hotel adult-only dinners offer 5 courses, starting with canapés and an apéritif, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, and a cheese selection to round off your meal in style. All this is then followed by coffee with chocolates to complete your evening's repast! Your choice of complimentary quality wines is unlimited during the meal service and freshly chilled water is also of course always available.

Vegetarian and Special Diets

Vegetarian options are always on our 'Culinary Choice' menu in our Chalet Hotels, and are available in our chalets if you advise us in advance. Other special diets can generally be catered for at a cost of £35 per person per week. Any dietary requirements must be advised to us at the time of booking in order for us to be fully prepared.

We update Chalet L'ancolie'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 Chalet L'ancolie in Meribel & Mottaret, France departs Sunday 15th January 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...

"Mixed group in Meribel"

David, Aberdeen
4/ out of 5
The chalet itself was fine, and the chalet hosts were tremendous. The food was fine, though I’m not sure about the twiddly bits / hors-d'oeuvre which were built up as being special but weren’t really. They bothered to do a turkey on Christmas day though which was nice. Main feedback, and the thing that we didn’t like about it was the bus transfer. And we wouldn’t book it again if we couldn’t easily walk back within around 200 yards. We were a mixed group and it was all slightly uncoordinated in terms of buses. I suppose the journey itself took about 10 minutes, but waiting for the chalet bus in the mornings as a big group sometimes took 20 minutes. The village bus was totally useless – at the end of the ski day you would be waiting for 30 minutes to get on it. Then once you had scrambled on, you couldn’t get off at your stop because it was so packed!

"Lovely and spacious"

Rachael, Cumbria
4/ out of 5
Lovely chalet, really spacious and big with enough room in the bedrooms. Everyone really liked it! We had a very good cook who produced excellent evening meals, they were so nice we all wanted the recipes of what he’d made! He did nice cakes for afternoon tea, though we didn’t always make it back in time for them. When it came to getting around Meribel the location was good as you could walk everywhere. Only improvement would have been a hot tub!

"Excellent and already rebooked"

5/ out of 5
Chalet l’Ancolie was excellent, we have already booked it again for next year! The actual living area relative to the number of guests is big, with room for everyone to sit in complete comfort – which isn’t something you hear about in most chalets! The location is fine, with the minibus picking us up. The meals were very good. Our only complaint is that there was no room security as there are no keys for the doors and the safe had been permanently locked by previous guests. Overall, with no hesitations I would give it a 5/5.

"A cosy haven of peace after skiing"

Richard, Sno Staff
5/ out of 5
One of our favourites because it’s situated in a lovely elevated position and with the added benefit of free transportation, giving this high quality chalet some of the best views of Meribel and the 3 valleys. This chalet benefits from the peace and quiet of being slightly elevated above the main drag and this is made even more enjoyable by the free shuttle service to the lifts and back. We love the friendly hosts and their higher quality of wines than is normal for chalet catering.
