Our chef made sure we never went hungry, providing a tempting selection of dishes at each meal - I'll definitely be going home a few pounds heavier! + more

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Merou. It was just right for our group, cosy but convenient for getting to the slopes in the morning. A special mention should be made to our chalet girl, who was helpful, friendly, polite and sociable all week – plus a great cook. + more

Location - where is Merou

Merou has a great location set above the village. It’s just a short walk downhill from the chalet to the centre of town.


Overview - chalet description - Merou description

Merou is a fabulous free standing chalet located in a quiet area of Verbier. The chalet is set within its own south facing garden with silence only broken by the nearby mountain stream.

Once inside the open plan living area with log fire provides the ideal space to relax after a long day on the mountain. From here double doors open out onto the south facing patio and garden where you can enjoy a pre-dinner drink with the sun going down over the Combins.

Established in 1937, posh party town Verbier covers a sunny plateau slap bang in the middle of Switzerland’s 4 valleys – which just happens to be one of Europe’s biggest and best ski areas. The easy-on-the-eye architecture’s a pretty mix of wood and slate, but it’s what you’ll find within some of these walls that’ll blow your socks off… Blending in with dozens of classic chalets and ski hotels, this place has some of the most luxurious lodgings on the planet. Some hotels come with designer suites an...
As well as being famous for its off-piste routes, Verbier’s well groomed slopes are well known as some of the most challenging in the Alps. Although it mainly attracts intermediate, advanced and expert level skiers seeking adventurous off-piste and steeps experience, the 37 local pistes covering 100km provide for all abilities. The resort has three areas specifically for beginners, including the gentle slopes at Les Moulins, which has a children’s area and Les Esserts, with its 120m magic carpet. Those with ...
Many say Verbier’s après is the main reason to visit – it’s certainly some of the best in the world and if you want to increase the odds of bumping into Prince Harry or Leonardo di Caprio on the dance floor, there’s no better place to party. From a good old pint in a lively pub (we love Nelson’s and Pub Mont Fort) to swanky cocktails with the socialites at Cordee de Alps, the nightlife is wonderfully varied. An absolute legend is the Farinet - with a huge sliding roof, a commanding position over the mai...
