Property Description

A fantastic opportunity to acquire this recent property, built in 2015, in a wonderful sunny location with loads of potential for personalisation. Some minor works will allow completion to a finished modern chalet with numerous options for extra habitable surface. Ideal as a second home in the French Alpes or the perfect opportunity for those able to work from home to enjoy all the benefits that living in this world-class ski destination has to offer.

• Fabulous sunny location with flat garden area.

• Quiet surroundings.

• Easy walking distance to skilift, free bus service and year-round amenities of les Allues.

• Recent construction with plenty of opportunity for personalisation.

• Spacious open plan living area, with lots of light

• Beautiful south-facing terrace

• Covered parking for 2 vehicles

The entrance is from the carport side of the property. This has an insulated roof and offers the potential for adding significant habitable surface by enclosing this space. Once inside there is potential for the creation of a cloakroom area, but this is currently open plan. There is a separate toilet area on this level and a utility room on this level that provides storage and laundry facilities. The vast living space that forms the main feature of the chalet is beautifully light and welcoming and benefits from a pivoting woodburner, as an additional heat source, that can be directed towards the lounge space or the dining area. The upper floor boasts 3 spacious double bedrooms sharing a large bathroom and separate toilet. Two of these bedrooms also benefit from access (unfinished for the moment) to a mezzanine area of approx. 25m2 (all under 1m80 in height) that could be transformed into an office or play area. The 4th double bedroom benefits from an ensuite shower room.

The chalet is located on 574m2 of land and the position of the chalet with respect to the property boundary gives some potential to the South for an extension, if desired. Les Allues is the ideal choice for the Méribel valley. The village benefits from year-round activity with shops, bars and restaurants open 12 months of the year. Linked directly to the skiing centre of Méribel by the free bus service, which runs both Winter and Summer seasons, and during the Winter by the Olympic bubble will allow you to have the best of both seasons and enjoy the active lifestyle available to owners of properties in the French Alps.

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

Meribel 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 Vallees.

 

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. Meribel 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 Meribel 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 Meribel Mottaret (1750 m), Meribel 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 Meribel boasts a range of facilities and activities.

 

The Meribel 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. Meribel 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 Meribel 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.
