This is also the perfect base to enjoy a sporty holiday in summer, with a super outdoor swimming pool.
A holiday is made much more memorable if you are staying in a great apartment. We think you'll enjoy our apartment for a few different reasons. Firstly it is in a very very convenient location - everything really is on the doorstep. Secondly, it is an inviting place to spend time. There is a picture-postcard view and a comfortable settee to enjoy it from! The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms spacious with baths that you can lie-back in and relax. The kitchen is tiny but everything is there to cook and then to sit down comfortably to enjoy your meal. We have spent many happy holidays here and we think you will too!
For children: Although children are welcome in our apartment, we don't feel it is suitable for very young children. The mezzanine is accessed by an open stairway and the lovely open space above the sitting room is not safe for very young children. Similarly, the balcony outside is high up. However, once the children have reached the age where they are more sensible, they will love the open-plan mezzanine and their parents will love the fact that the double-bedroom is tucked away quietly downstairs where they can enjoy a lie-in without being disturbed! Older children can safely walk the short distance to the shops in the village and can even reach the village sports centre with its swimming pool and skating rink without crossing over any major roads.
In summer, older children will enjoy the outdoor pool in the apartment complex. This is a great sunny spot and very warm and sheltered on sunny days.
Summer Activities: Over the last few years, Meribel has developed into a great summer activities centre. It is a main centre now for mountain biking (our apartment has a secure underground garage for bike storage) with an extensive network of trails in the surrounding mountains. Throughout the summer there are a number of mountain-biking events. Walkers and nature-lovers are spoilt for choice with the Vanoise National Park - marmots and bouquetins are everywhere! The 18 hole golf course in Meribel is superb - watch out for low flying places as you tee-off on the 3rd! There is also a fantastic, well-maintained driving range. If none of the above appeals - try the tennis courts or perhaps you might like to pony trek. The riding centre also offers an extensive programme of lessons. Adventurous kids can let off steam on the climbing wall in the sports centre or cool down in the ice rink - skate-hire is no problem. The Meribel tourist office has an extensive web page - have a look at what is on offer.
Having skied all our lives, we wanted to have somewhere in a great skiing location. Sharing our apartment with our guests meant we could have an apartment which was really well located and also really well equipped - we like to think everyone benefits. It gives us great pleasure to share it and to hear how much people enjoy their holidays in our place.
This property ticked all the boxes for us. Bright with wonderful views, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, underground car parking and only minutes from the centre of Meribel and the pistes. It is a wonderful place to be, winter or summer.
We very much enjoyed our stay in Meribel ......... As you can probably guess from my email sign-off, I love to cook and it is a great opportunity to do so when on holiday. (I know it is most people's nightmare!) Even though the kitchen was small, is was so well-equipped, that we manage to eat very well!!!
The apartment is just as described and easy to find thanks to the excellent info pack sent by owners. We arrived later than planned and the local management company phoned us to make arrangements for a key to be left. Very helpful and friendly. The layout worked well for us - 2 adults and 3 children - as there is privacy with the separate bedroom downstairs and flexibility with the lounge and mezzanine areas.
The 2 bathrooms are very handy. The apartment was very warm and cosy to come home to after a day skiing and there was always plenty of hot water for baths / showers.
Note for anyone in Meribel over New Year - excellent torchlit descent and firework display at the Chaudanne area on New Years Eve - not to be missed.
Very well located in centre of Meribel, close to shops bars and bus stops. We had a brilliant week, the apartment is small but well laid out and well equipped. Having two bathrooms was a bonus. The apartment building itself is well maintained and very secure. There is a balcony that gets the sun in the afternoon with a good view of the mountain. We would definitely consider a return visit. The butchers shop sells good takeaway food!
I'd avoid this apartment. I emailed the owner who confirm availability and accepted my deposit. They then decided they want to use the apartment themselves and cancelled my booking.
We enjoyed a fantastic week staying in this fabulous apartment which is right in the heart of Meribel. It provided a great base from which we could ski all three valleys and enjoy the fabulous local bars and restaurants at night.
The nearest access to the snow is just above the tourist info centre just 200m (approx) away. You can also ski back to this point which makes for a very short, downhill walk to the apartment. The walk back from the main lifts is a little longer but it's still easy -- you can catch the bus if you are completely exhausted after skiing!
For breakfasts and one or two nights we stayed in, we found everything we needed in the small but well equipped kitchen. Having the main supermarket just down the road was extremely convenient as well.
Communication from Vari and the AMS team was fantastic in the lead up to and after our stay. We had one small issue on arrival with the wireless internet which was resolved quickly and efficiently - very much appreciated.
Overall apartment was perfect for us and we look forward to coming back again to enjoy all that Meribel and the Three Valleys have to offer.
From the first enquiry to leaving Meribel booking this apartment could not have been easier. It was exactly as described - Vari couldn't have been more helpful and efficient.
Great location - quiet, near shops, restaurants and slopes - perfect!
A real plus was the parking place in underground carpark.
All information from owners and letting agents very clear and precise - made everything so easy.
Would have liked 2 sets of keys to accommodate the different times of our party retiring for the night or maybe given the code (if there was one?) for the outside door?
Look forward to returning!
Very clean, comfortable, and of easy access. The apartment has a parking place, which is very interesting because parking in Méribel is not that easy.
The central location of the building is also really convenient for any purpose. Access to ski pists is nearby.
Our apartment has an ideal location for holidays. In winter it is close to ski pistes, shops, bars, restaurants, night-life, the sports centre with swimming pool, spa and skating rink. The Alps have fantastic sun in winter and summer which you can enjoy from the balcony. Just relax and enjoy the views! For a summer visit, the beautiful mountain-side is on the doorstep along with all the sports the village offers - walking, mountain biking, para-gliding, tennis, golf, swimming - and of course sunbathing. In summer, the apartment enjoys free use of a beautiful outdoor pool located in the complex. Meribel is particularly good for mountain biking holidays in summer and our apartment has a secure underground garage for convenient bike storage.
Ski: Meribel, in the centre of the Three Valleys area is one of the most picturesque ski and snowboarding resorts in the Alps - and offers pistes which seems endless. Apart from the Meribel Valley itself, with swift access the huge adjoining ski areas of Courchevel, Les Menuires and Val Thorens, there is definitely a new slopes for every day of your holiday! In addition, the piste management is fantastic. Nowadays, with new snow-making technology the snow is much better prepared and preserved and slopes are open from the beginning of December to the end of April (and often much longer for the ski tourers out there!) Meribel is also the place to browse for new ski equipment. Numerous ski shops offer an incredible range of both skis and snowboards - not to mention very trendy ski wear.
