The lifts at Meribel's La Chaudanne area are only seven minutes drive away. For most of the winter it is possible to ski back to Le Cruet along the Blue 'Villages' piste and also down through the fields to the telecabine in Les Allues. The Chalet is on the edge of the village with wonderful view over Les Allues and the Meribel Valley. There is a very good complimentary bus service from Le Cruet only two minutes walk from the Chalet.

Very comfortable, well equipped Chalet
This Chalet is a real home from home. Well equipped with modern appliances, very comfortable and everything you could wish for or need when self catering. Loved the views across the valley and the piece de resistance being the open fire. Everything that we needed was at hand and everything worked. Although not ski in/ski out, popping our skis and boots in the car and driving to the Altiport in the morning was not a chore. Want to go for 2 weeks next year!
Thanks for the review, see you soon,
We wouldn't ordinarily write a review, in fact this is a first for us but this accommodation certainly deserves to be shouted about. To say we were pleasantly surprised would be an understatement. Our first thought when we walked in was wow. Everything is brand new & very modern and light. This apartment has obviously just been refurbished. The kitchen has a breakfast bar which is perfect for pre dinner drinks and meal times. If you are self catering the kitchen is very well equipped. All bed linen and towels are provided and the bed was very comfy. The ski bus is only a two minute walk away. Or if your driving as we were there if free parking at Merible Village. ( but you need to be there early to get a space) we could not have wished for more even the weather gave us bright blue skies. We will definatley be booking again. It has everything you want for a fantastic ski break and right on the door step of the three valleys
Thanks for the review, glad you liked the apartment,
My first thought when I stood in the chalet and then onto its balcony was WOW what an absolutely amazing view, halfway up a mountain, sun shinning and little villages nestling below us it was stunning.
The chalet was roomy and beautifully appointed with plenty of room for the 5 of us. Each room has bed linin and towels supplied and the beds were really comfortable, no waiting for the bathroom to be free either with 2 ensuite rooms, 2 separate toilets and a shower room. The lounge area gave us plenty of room too to spread out and relax too, the children were especially happy with having WiFi and UK TV programmes.
There was plenty to do in the area some beautiful walks and great cycling also some of the gondolers and chair lifts were open so you could get to the 'top of the world' without too much trouble.
All in all we had a fabulous time staying in Chalet Tarine, booking was no problem and the owner Andy easy to communicate with, a great place for a summer holiday as well as winter.
Thanks for the review, much appreciated, glad you had a good time,
Beautiful chalet with fabulous view
We enjoyed our holiday at La Tarine this summer! We made several hikes, the surroundings are beautiful (you can buy a book with hikes at the tourist office in Meribel). We also visited Annecy and its lake and the glacier La Grande Motte. The chalet was very complete, it was really cosy inside and the view from the livingroom and the balcony is fabulous! Highly recommended!

We really enjoyed our time at La Tarine. It has a lovely view, a very nice kitchen / dining area, and a comfortable lounge area. We were 6 adults and 4 children, and felt the size was good. It definitely has the winter cozy feeling we were looking for.
I was not sure when we booked the chalet how far Le Cruet was from Meribel Centre - Chaudanne and how practical it would be to have to drive around. It turned out that driving to la Chaudanne was very easy, and that we never had a problem finding a parking spot even during one of the busiest weeks of the year (half term in both Paris and London). Neither were the parking fees extortionate, at under 10 euros a day.
We recently stayed at this Chalet for a week with friends & had the most fantastic time. The chalet itself has everything you could want - a real home from home but with the added bonus of spectacular views to the rear both day & night across the valley. Meribel centre is only a 7 minute drive away and Meribel Village is less than that. If you prefer to leave the car at the chalet there is a free bus service just at the end of the road. I would have no hesitation in recommending this chalet. In fact we were so impressed we are looking to return again this season.
Thanks for the review and thanks for the booking for Easter 2015. Hope you have a another great holiday,
