It boasts a spacious open plan lounge and dining area and the large windows allow maximum light and clarity. Full en suite facilities for each of the 4 bedrooms and ample provision for hot water makes the chalet perfect for an active family second home in one of skiing’s most sought after destinations. Alternatively the chalet could make an ideal investment opportunity with its prime location as a rental property.
The front door brings one into the spacious, open plan, fully equipped kitchen, dining and living room area (50.7m²). On this level are two of the four double bedrooms. The first (9.5m²) with en suite shower room and WC (2.3m²) and the second (9.8m) with en suite bathroom with WC (2.8m²). This level also benefits from a separate WC off the main living area.
Stairs lead up to the first level with a further two double bedrooms. A first double bedroom in the eaves (15.3m²) with ensuite bathroom and WC (3.0m²) and a second double bedroom (12.1m²) in the eaves with ensuite bathroom and WC (3.1m²). Adjacent to one of the bedrooms is a utility/storage area (14.6m² and an additional 9.2m² less than 1.8m in height) containing switchboard and hot water storage. This could be modified to also contain a laundry.
Located near Méribel centre the chalet is perfectly situated to enable you to fully enjoy Méribel’s numerous bars and restaurants once the day’s skiing is over. There is also a bus stop, for Méribel’s free shuttle service, next to the chalet’s parking for those wishing to explore the rest of the valley’s charms without the need for a car. This is a great opportunity to acquire a comfortable, versatile chalet in an unrivalled location close to the centre of Méribel.
The chalet’s prime location has meant the current owners have been able to benefit from guaranteed tour operator rental income making the chalet a fantastic investment opportunity as well. For your day’s skiing a short 4 minute walk brings you to the foot of the ski access escalator right in the centre of Méribel. From here it is a short, easy ski down to the Chaudanne, the main skilift departure point from Méribel, and then off to explore the world famous Three Valleys ski area complex.
The Three Valleys (Méribel - Brides Les Bains - Courchevel - La Tania - Les Menuires - St Martin de Belleville - Val Thorens - Orelle) is the world’s most extensive fully linked ski area, with over 600 km of groomed pistes. The Méribel valley, at the heart of the Three Valleys, boasts a perfect compromise between high altitude skiing and tree-lined pistes. Extensive snowmaking and a modern sophisticated lift system makes Méribel a very attractive skiing destination.
Three Valleys Ski Area
A beautiful place all year with highly defined seasons and quiet and tranquil out of the ski season when the crowds have gone home, and then suddenly once again each winter the mountains of the Three Valleys come alive with people enjoying this vast ski area..... the largest linked skiing in the world.
The Three Valleys ski domain provides more than 600km of runs and probably the same again off-piste. In fact it should now be called the Four Valleys with the link into Orelle (Maurienne Valley) which can be accessed by ski from Val Thorens. This has also opened up some extraordinary off-piste runs. The Three Valleys provides direct links between the ski resorts of St Martin de Belleville, Les Menuires, Val Thorens, Méribel, Mottaret, La Tania, Brides les Bains and the four Courchevel resorts, la Praz, 1550, 1650 and the world famous 1850 – and now Orelle, in the fourth valley - all under one ski pass offering on-piste skiing from 1300m all the way up to 3200m. As these figures show the Three Valleys ski area offers huge altitude differences favouring long run skiing.
It has an ultra efficient, state of the art ski lift system, quality piste preparation and a dense artificial snow making system (1920 snow cannons) complementing the excellent natural snow cover. However, if you are not a fan of downhill skiing or like some variety during your stay then you can also roam the domain at your leisure on foot, hiking along the marked trails, or using the pedestrian ski lift passes. Many trails have been created especially to enjoy the increasingly popular snowshoeing sport and to discover the valleys from a new perspective: flora, wildlife, monuments, and spectacular scenery.There are also many cross-country skiing tracks that are prepared and maintained each day. These allow you to take in the breathtaking scenery and provide the opportunity to appreciate the beauty of the mountains away from the pistes.
An interesting and wonderful area all year round, there is much more here than the snow sports.
Meribel Ski Resort
Méribel is one of most popular resorts in Europe for English-speaking skiers along with Courchevel and Val d’Isere.
Meribel is the central valley of the largest ski domain in the world, Les 3 Vallées.
With 600 km of groomed pistes, 85% of which are above 1800 metres, 25 accessible summits, 174 modern lifts and over 2090 snow cannons covering 43% of the ski area the statistics are impressive as is the skiing. However Méribel is much more than the 5 month winter ski season and an extended stay in summer or during the colours of autumn are needed to appreciate this.
The initial development of the ski resort in the late 1930’s was a British and French partnership and this acceptance of English speakers continues to this day. Méribel is now a much more diverse international community with a large percentage of residents or visitors speaking English as their main or second language.
The main village of Méribel is built on the eastern side of the valley between 1450 and 1700 metres and because of this it is surrounded by forests or grass & timbered slopes. The strict architectural codes of alpine sloping rooflines, timber and stone cladding compliments this setting and makes it one of, if not the most, attractive of all the large high altitude French ski resorts.
The other major “resort villages” are Méribel Mottaret (1750 m), Méribel Village (1400 m), Les Allues (1100m) and the spa town of Brides-Les-Bains (600 m) at the very bottom of the valley. There are many smaller villages or hamlets so the range of property covers all tastes from barn conversions & village houses through to ski apartments and super luxury ski in ski out chalets with private swimming pools. As well as the normal range of hotels, bars, restaurants & shops Méribel boasts a range of facilities and activities.
The Méribel Olympic Centre is home to a full size ice rink, indoor climbing wall, 25 metres indoor heated pool and water slide, conference centre, gymnasium and wellness centre of spa, steamrooms, etc.
There is a spectacular 18 hole Golf Course at 1700 metres and a huge range of other outdoor activities such as tennis, hiking, mountain biking, road cycling, paragliding, fishing, etc which are enjoyed in the warmer months. Méribel property is generally more expensive than other French resorts but not yet at the dizzy heights of Courchevel 1850 with perhaps the exception of a few of the most prestigious pockets.
As Méribel continues to become ever more popular with the big spenders of the world the strong capital growth experienced over many many years is likely to continue.
