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.

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!

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!

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.
