Meribel is a large and scattered resort, don't be confused, there are many smaller villages such as La Gittaz, Raffort, Chandon and Les Allues, upto 6kms away, from the centre. This chalet is located in the centre, however the centre does not mean that the shops, bars and main lift area are all on your doorstep. All our chalets are located all round the resort centre, and only a ten minute or less walk to the shops and bars. The main lift area is slightly beyond this and although you could walk, there is a free resort bus that goes from right outside the chalet. The chalet is three floors over a ground floor, which at the front is a small fromagerie, selling the best of local cheeses. Set back slightly from the road, the chalet is really in the town centre. If you are looking for something that is a short walk from everything then this is the chalet for you. The main lift area is slightly beyond this and although you could walk, there is no need as we operate a minibus service. The chalet is situated in a private cul-de-sac away from noise and traffic, but central enough to be a short walk. There is a free resort bus service if required, however the walk is short and a pleasant one to the centre. Our minibus service means that one of our drivers will take you from outside your chalet down to the main lift area and ski schools in the morning, its approximately a four minute ride, at the end of the day you can text your driver for a collection home, even from the Rond Point. It is less than a five minute walk to the shops and bars of an evening.
