The Chalet Company provides a range of catered ski chalets in the Méribel valley that can accommodate between five and sixteen guests. Chalets can be rented on a self-catered or fully-catered basis. But, regardless of your choice of chalet, once you step or ski through the front door then you’re under our care and we’ll do everything we can to ensure that your stresses quickly fade so you can get on with relaxing and enjoying your ski holiday.
The mission of The Chalet Company is to provide our guests with an exceptional experience at an affordable price. So if you book a ski chalet with us you’ll pay more or less the same as you would for 3 star accommodation elsewhere in Meribel but you’ll get an amazing holiday that’s worth way more – especially when it comes to service, where we do everything we can to make sure that your stay in the mountains is as magnificent as it should be.
Brothers Steve & Phil Purdie, the two founders of The Chalet Company, were brought up by a Scottish Mother whose attention to detail and insistence on punctuality, politeness and good home economics are legendary. We have always felt that the devil is in the detail…lighting the fire when the first guest arrives is too late, it should be roaring by that time! Knowing that not everyone wants a glass of champagne on arrival is important - sometimes nothing hits the spot like a nice cup of tea! And greeting every guest with a genuine smile is absolutely essential.
These early lessons run through everything we do and have become the basis of our philosophy; to offer our guests 4-star chalets with 5-star service but at 3-star prices. Without doubt, the most important expression of this service is through every member of our team. We stay relatively small and tight-knit, we don’t go in for mass recruitment of gap year students…every team member is hand-picked because, as a family company, we regard recruitment as asking someone to join the family and entrant requirements are high!
The Chalet Company is Méribel born and bred…we only manage chalets here because, only in Méribel can we offer the valuable insights that come with having lived and worked in the resort for many years - Steve & Phil also run ski instructor courses in the Valley through sister company, SnowSkool, as well as UK-based SportSkool. For us, Méribel is the ultimate ski resort. The Three Valleys is the world’s largest inter-connected ski area with over 600km of pistes. You can carve the groomers down to Saint Martin de Belleville first thing before heading up to Val Thorens to take lunch in the highest ski resort in Europe and then heading two valleys over to Courchevel 1850 for a spot of après - and all on one ski pass! The diversity in terms of skiing, ambience and prices! is mind-blowing!
And right at the heart of the Three Valleys is the Méribel valley. As well as the skiing, Méribel has fantastic amenities; the Olympic Centre offers swimming pools, a spa, a gym, a climbing wall, ice-skating and ten-pin bowling. There are plenty of eateries ranging from cheap pizzerias to classy five-star restaurants. As for the wee hours, Méribel‘s nightlife has a worldwide reputation with many popular bars such as le Rondpoint (Ronnies), O'Sullivans and Jack’s Bar. You won’t be disappointed!
