It’s been a weird year for chalets in Méribel, the ski industry, and travel in general. For this reason, catered chalet companies has seen a lot of coming-and-going from chalets on their books. We’ve dropped a few, hung on to our most popular (*cheers for Evergreen and Impala*) and, excitingly, we’ve adopted four new chalets so far. You might have seen us gushing about their balconies, open fires, heated boot racks and proximity to town on social media… but if you haven’t, may we introduce our four newest chalets in Méribel, for this season.
Location of Chalet Daurel
Just 400m from Méribel Centre, Chalet Daurel has an enviable location. You’re right by the resort’s main supermarket (for filling the backpack with ski-necessary choccie bars in particular), and you’re also minutes from Méribel’s favourite bar Sully’s. The slopes aren’t far either but, to make things super-easy, we offer a free minibus transfer service to guests at Chalet Daurel. No more lugging your kit to the lift and back! The service is available from 8.30 – 10.30am and 3.30pm – 6.30pm, Sunday to Friday.
Inside Chalet Daurel
We think Chalet Daurel is one of the prettiest chalets in Méribel. It was once an old farmhouse and now is a classic ski chalet, with an open fire, plenty of stone and beams throughout. It’s a lovely place to stay as it has been thoughtfully designed: an open-plan living and dining room, heated boot-warmers, every bedroom has a bath and (nearly) every bedroom has a balcony!
Location if Chalet Camelia
Chalet Camelia is located right next to Chalet Camarine (see below). Between them, they can host groups of up to 27 guests – a recipe for a seriously fun ski trip!
We reckon it takes eight minutes, at a stroll, to the centre of Méribel from Chalet Camelia. This means the supermarket, bars and restaurants are all very accessible. The chalet is also less than 50m from the free resort shuttle bus – basically on your doorstep! This means it’s super-easy to pop back to the chalet to dump your skis and boots (should you want to après in comfort!).
Inside Chalet Camelia
Considering how big Chalet Camelia is, its prices work out at great value. You’ll find seven bedrooms, over three floors, that all have en-suite bathrooms. The loveliest feature is perhaps the south-facing sun terrace on the main floor. Watching the last of the skiers come down the Roc de Fer, while you enjoy your afternoon on the wraparound terrace is a real treat! The open-plan living and dining area also has a bag fireplace to relax around after dinner.
Location of Chalet Camarine
Without repeating ourselves, Chalet Camarine is right next door to Chalet Camelia and in a really handy spot! The bus stop is right outside the door, but the town (~600m away) is fully walk-able in shoes that aren’t ski boots (is anything walkable in ski boots?!).
Inside Chalet Camarine
Chalet Camarine has had a recent facelift and is slightly smaller than its sister, Camelia, but with a similar homely atmosphere. Similarly to Chalet Camelia, you’ll find en-suites in every bedroom, and the open-plan living area that allows for a smooth dinner-table-to-lounging-in-front-of-the-fire transition! You’ll also be able to enjoy a large sun terrace and heavenly heated boot-warmers.
Location of Chalet Eleanor
The most central one yet! At just 150m from Méribel Centre, you probably could walk this one in ski boots! Chalet Eleanor sits slightly elevated which gives it incredible views down the valley – picture-perfect views for making your friends jealous on social media. Now, if you still can’t face carrying your stuff to the lifts in the morning (or back home), we do also offer a private mini-bus service to and from the slopes. The service is available from 8.30 – 10.30am and 3.30pm – 6.30pm, Sunday to Friday.
Inside Chalet Eleanor
Chalet Eleanor is seemingly built around its amazing views of Méribel. All seven bedrooms have their own balconies. This is especially useful as we find there are two types of uses for a ski-holiday balcony: airing stinky ski socks, or sipping a morning/afternoon cuppa in peace. The two don’t blend well… The bedrooms are big and all have an en-suite too. You’ll find Chalet Eleanor’s open-plan living and dining area is on the top floor. Unsurprisingly, it has a big wrap-around balcony that makes the most of, you guessed it, the amazing views!
