Location - where is Refuge Boua

A completely unique position on the piste and next to the Chaudanne lifts. Just 150m across the nursery slopes to the village centre.


Overview - chalet description - Refuge Boua description

Refuge Boua is the ‘sell-out’ chalet in our Meribel portfolio and favorite of the hardcore Meribel ski cognoscenti. This is a true skiers chalet; literally on the piste and next to the lifts at Chaudanne, the main hub of Meribel’s huge ski area and ski school meeting point. The bijou front room  provides a bright and comfortable living space leading to a small terrace with a secluded hot tub. The five minimalist bedrooms overlook the piste and have crisp white walls, cosy wood panelling and smart contemporary en suite shower rooms. There are not many chalets on the slopes in Meribel, even fewer that are only a short stroll across the piste to the centre of town.

Meals - food and drink in Refuge Boua

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 2014 menus are heavy enough to reward mountain exertion yet light and simple enough to leave you grinning not groaning.

All our holidays include;

  • Continental breakfast with a cooked option on 6 mornings
  • Afternoon tea will be left in the chalet for you to help yourself to freshly made cake or biscuits, bread & jams, selection of teas, coffee and hot chocolate
  • Canapés on the first and last evening
  • 3 course evening meal (6 nights) followed by cheese board and coffee
  • A choice of red and white wine is served throughout dinner
We update Refuge Boua'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 Refuge Boua in Meribel & Mottaret, France departs Sunday 23rd April 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...

"La Boua"

Great hosts, Josh & Gareth, thank you. Location excellent for lifts & town. Shame about penny pinching around ski carriage weight allowance, which left bad taste in mouth

"Fabulous holiday!"

We all had a fantastic time at chalet Boua. Josh and Gareth could not have been better hosts and were also very flexible if we had additional requirements. The food was brilliant and wine allowance very generous. The location was also unbeatable, I would definitely recommend this chalet to others and we are also planning a return trip ourselves. The tea in bed is also a nice touch!

"Fantastic all round service and cuisine"

From the moment you step onto the bus with fruit and water provided you know this is a good company. Very friendly and efficient team at every stage. And Refuge Boua exceeds expectations. The chalet team Gareth and Josh are passionate hosts. From the warm reception to the amazing cuisine they want it to be only the best. They have a passion for cooking and working as a team they manage to produce four course meals that would do a 5* restaurant proud. And nothing is too much trouble for them from tea in bed in the morning to a fresh baked cake at tea time. And the Refuge Boua is ideally situated right by the central lifts a 60 second ski away. All in all a fantastic holiday package. Thank you Josh and Gareth it's been a pleasure staying with you.

"Best ski holiday to date!"

Travelled with a group of friends who have shared many ski holidays in the past and we all agreed this was the best to date! The service level is superb, the chalet absolutely lovely, the food incredible and plenty of it. Unlimited wine, hot tub and ski in- ski out all made this a wonderful ski holiday. And last but by no means least our chalet hosts Gareth and Josh were the best - extremely nice, friendly, polite, helpful and incredibly accommodating - they made our week. Highly recommended.
