La Petite Silene is a new-build property, which boasts a hot tub, sauna, wood-burner, flat screen TVs in each room, and a town-centre location. It really does tick all the boxes.
Spread over 3 floors, the first floor is the main floor and has a large open-plan living area with dining table and kitchen. The sofa and chairs are arranged around a stylish wood-burning stove and a large flat-screen TV.
Two sets of French doors lead onto a large terrace with a sumptuous hot-tub big enough for 4-5 people.
The large dining table is set back from the living area. It's well-lit and spacious – a great space to enjoy some delicious cuisine.
There is a large kitchen (appointed with all the latest appliances) which is separated from the living area with a breakfast bar.
Also on the main floor is Bedroom 1. This is a double or twin room (as are all the rooms in Silene) complete with ensuite – a spacious walk-in shower.
Bedroom 2 is a large room, with space for an extra bed.
Bedrooms 3 and 4 can also be twins or doubles and again have their own en-suites.
There are doors onto a Juliet balcony shared with Bedroom 3 and 4.
On the ground floor, you’ll find the sauna room with a shower room next door. There’s also a boot warmer, ski rack, downstairs toilet, and comfy benches to collapse onto as you take off your boots.
The front door to the chalet leads into this lobby area.
La Petite Silene is situated on the main road into Meribel. It’s a 3-minute walk from the front door to the escalator that leads onto the slopes. It’s an even shorter walk to the first bar – La Taverne is just 2 minutes away.
La Petite Silene has a fantastic location for a ski chalet - right in the centre of Meribel. It’s only 3 minutes to walk from the chalet to the escalator by the tourist office that takes you up onto the slopes. Then it’s an easy ski along to La Chaudanne, the main lift area.
At the end of the day, it’s an easy ski down the blue home run, to the top of the escalator, and then a wander back to the chalet. The only question is do you stop off at Le Tav for a quick beer on their terrace, or head straight back to the chalet for a cup of tea and home-made cake?!
On your door-step, you have the numerous shops, bars and restaurants plus the twice-weekly market, that all combine to make Meribel such a vibrant resort.
Prices shown are per person based on full occupancy of the property. Usually this property is only bookable on a full occupancy basis.
You will be looked after by a chalet host. They’ll come in each morning, and prepare for you a delicious breakfast, setting you up for the day. This will include a hot option, such as pancakes, eggs benedict, or scrambled egg. You’ll have a choice of porridge, cereals, croissants, pains-au-chocolat, yoghurts, tea and coffee.
At the end of a long day on the slopes, you’ll come back to an afternoon tea, of home-made cakes or biscuits. Then in the evening, we’ll cook you a delicious 3-course meal. You’ll enjoy canapés with a glass of wine before dinner, and then sit down to a cordon-bleu meal, all served with specially selected fine wines. As you kick back and relax after dinner, you’ll be served freshly brewed coffee or a choice of teas and after dinner chocolates.
The Extra Touches In Les Griottes and La Petite Silene we serve you Champagne with your canapés each evening. In Snowbel we serve you a bottle of Cremant each evening. In Marmotton we welcome you on your first night with two bottles of Cremant. Les Griottes and La Petite Silene also have a drinks cooler fridge with beers and soft drinks.
Children We know that all families have different eating habits, and we want you to feel very much at home. To this end, we’re very happy to prepare a kids’ dinner earlier in the evening – something like spaghetti bolognese, shepherd’s pie ramekins, homemade pizza bread slices or fish-fingers. We’ll go through with you what your children like to eat or not, and make sure we fill the fridge accordingly.
Food requirements, allergies etc We’ll discuss your food requirements with you before your holiday to make sure we have everything you need. We can offer vegetarian alternatives to each meal, and over the past 17 years, we have catered for all sorts of allergies including nuts, eggs, wheat/gluten-free, coeliac and more. We cater to your needs, not to our fixed menu plans.
