Chalet Petit Gibus (sleeps 6-8) 1450m. The Chalet Petit Gibus is what you call cute... your ultimate chocolate-box freestanding tradtional Alpine chalet.
This wonderful property is set in a peaceful yet commanding location just below the popular Morel area of Meribel, probably the oldest part of the town with its wonderful old farm buildings, barns and church. Lovingly furnished by its English owners, it has a truly homely appeal with traditional fixtures and fittings. The super living area has a roaring log fire and leads to a scenic balcony with stunning views across Meribel and the valley. Whilst the Petit Gibus is ideally suited to groups of six people, there is an additional bunk bedded room which can be used for whole groups of eight.
The chalet is is situated on a clearing between two of the large bends which wind up through Meribel therefore access can either be made via a downhill path or via a staircase leading up from the lower road. The Morel chairlift is a short (uphill) walk away and the local free bus stops nearby for those wanting to access Chaudanne central ski point. The village centre with its many shops, bars and restaurants is about 10 minutes walk and the famous Chez Kiki bar/restaurant is closeby for a spot of apres-ski.
You will be warmly welcomed to Chalet Petit Gibus by one of our friendly chalet hosts who lives out.
Did You Know: Due to the wonderful cuteness of this property, the Petit Gibus is extremely popular as chalets of this size, quality and tradition are so very hard to find... you'll need to be quick!

We offer our properties on a flexible catering basis therefore providing our guests with as much choice as possible when choosing a fully-catered, part-catered or self-catered chalet or apartment. Your preferences will be discussed at the time of booking and a tailor-made itinerary will be costed based on your requirements.
Our chalet hosts all enjoy cooking and take pride in what they serve and whilst they are not necessarily qualified chefs, they have good experience of dinner party cooking and many of them will have attended one of the well-regarded cookery schools with whom we work closely to ensure the highest calibre of staff possible.
If choosing the fully catered or part catered option, you will be assured of good home-cooked food prepared and served by our specially selected chalet hosts. We do not offer luxury items or haute cuisine, we serve good wholesome hearty food fit for anyone after a hard day on the slopes. Menus will be varied and may include local dishes as well as the more traditional UK favourites such as roasts, lasagne or casseroles.
Our menus have been formed over many years taking into account previous guests’ likes and recommendations and whilst we believe this plan to offer excellent variety, there will be the odd occasion when a dish might not be well-received. We would ask you therefore that if you have any specific dietary requirements or a yearning for dishes in particular, you enquire before booking your holiday and provide us with as much notice as possible regarding specific diets such as vegetarian, vegan, celiac or non-dairy etc.

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.
