We have a great selection with 5 bedrooms in or near the main town. Many are high level luxury with log fires, hot tubs, sauna, sat tv,wifi. Some are booked as a complete unit for up to 10 – 12 guests. However many will also take bookings room by room.
The main town has spread out a bit lately so a private minibus service is now often provided. These operate mornings and afternoons to and from the ski slopes. Most of the 5 bedroom accommodation has en suite bedrooms. Doubles, twins or family size units.
Prices vary so much depending on the location and level of luxury. All offer breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner with wine. Some luxury chalets in Meribel now have Michelin standard chefs so the food & presentation is fabulous. Better in fact than many restaurants!
We have a superb selection of 6 bedroom accommodation. These are all in or near the main town. They are high standard and sleep 12 – 14 guests in total. Bedrooms are usually en suite doubles or twins. Some book out as a whole unit only but there are those that will take individual room reservations too.
Many chalets in France now have hot tubs and / or sauna. One luxury chalet has its own swimming pool too. Most have log fires, wifi sat tv , dvd etc. Many have their own private chauffeur service to and from the slopes. A few are actually on the piste = ski in ski out.
The standard of food served in fully catered ski holidays has improved immensely over the past years. You can now expect a hearty giant of a breakfast, delicious cakes in the afternoon and a 3 to 5 course gourmet dinner with wine in the evenings. As usual 1 night a week chalet staff relax so you eat out.
Fully catered Meribel chalets with 7 bedrooms are not so easy to find. However we do have a good selection sleeping 14 /15 guests. The larger ones often sell rooms individually. Book early if you want it exclusively. Most have en suite bedrooms. They come in twins or doubles with occasionally large family rooms. Singles do exist but are quite rare.
The larger accommodation choices do tend to have more twin rooms than doubles. They also often come in a package if required with UK flights and transfers included. Many now have private minibuses to ferry you to and from the ski slopes. All will almost certainly have log fires, wi-fi, Tv & dvd player etc. Some even have a pool and of course the ever popular hot tub/jacuzzi outdoor on the terrace.
A fully catered ski holiday is a very social affair. New friends are often made. You have 2 or more staff cooking and cleaning. for you. Afternoon tea is very popular, and home-made cakes are the order of the day. Dinner is served with free wine during the meal. The staff has one night a week off (usually Wednesday). This night you eat out. If you love mixing then this style of holiday is highly recommended.
As with 7 bedrooms these larger properties are very popular as they usually sell rooms individually. If you need exclusive acommodation for a large group then do get in very early to avoid disappointment. They are very popular with the British. The French tend to go self catering or hotels.
The larger the accommodation obviously the more staff. Usually 2 or more plus a private minibus service to and from the slopes. Facilities are similar to the 7 bedroom chalets with log fires, wifi, and some with hot tubs and/or sauna.
We have 10 Meribel chalets with 8 bedrooms or more for up to 24 guests in total. In most of them rooms are reserved first come first served. They will often include a whole package including flights and transfers. If it is your first chalet holiday read Wikipedia’s definition of a chalet.
