Chalet Bouchot is on three floors spread over an apartment and as you enter the main entrance you instantly feel the warmth of this charming sweet chalet.
The first of the bedrooms is on the ground floor, a really nice spacious twin with an en-suite shower room, there are a further three bedrooms on the first floor. There is a very spacious twin that has en-suite facilities as well as a balcony with fantastic views; there is a smaller room that is a double with en-suite facilities and a twin bedroom that has its own newly renovated private bathroom. On two of the bedrooms balconies and the windows of others you can view the stunning Meribel valley and slopes. The second floor is given over entirely to the open-plan living and dining area, attractively furnished, you will feel at home seated around a log fireplace, giving you the perfect chalet atmosphere. The floor to ceiling picture windows on two sides of the living room open onto a spacious sun-terrace, which provides fantastic views across the valley. There is also a hot-tub on the terrace providing the perfect finishing touch. The chalet can only be booked for sole use.
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 no need as we operate a minibus service. The chalet is situated in a well know and popular area of chalets, it's a quiet area away from noise and traffic, but central enough to be a short walk 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.

Special Dietary Requirements
Recently this operator has noticed an increase in requests for special dietary requirements. The nature of a chalet holiday has traditionally been a menu for the whole chalet during the week. This is an element that allows this operator to provide competitively priced holidays in the first-class Ski Resorts of Meribel & Courchevel. The availability of certain ingredients has improved over recent years in the Alps from our suppliers. Therefore they are happy to introduce the choice of a revised menu/cakes when requested with adequate notice. There will be a charge of £39 per person for this service. Please note chalet hosts are not professional chefs.
Vegetarian, Pescatarian And Special Diets
This operator is happy to assist with your special dietary requirements. Vegetarian and pescatarian options are available on their normal chalet menus and there is no charge for this. Other special diets can generally be catered for, such as gluten-free, dairy-free, wheat-free, coeliac and other specific food allergies. There will be a charge of £39 per person per week. Any dietary requirements must be advised to us at the time of booking in order for us to be fully prepared. Failure to do so will result in a short notice fee of €60 per person per week charged in resort. A specific meal may not be available on the first night with late notice. Please note chalet hosts are not professional chefs.
Likes And Dislikes
It is impossible for chalet staff to take notes of peoples food 'dislikes'. If you are on a diet, then a chalet holiday might not be your best option, however, you can make the choice of what you eat on the menu. They have set menus, these are varied and made from local fresh produce, your hosts do not have the time or resources to make different dinners for a variety of people each evening. Please note our chalet hosts are not professional chefs.
France/Ski resorts don't tend to be vegan friendly, with almost every menu featuring cheese fondue and cured meats. So the choice is limited during the day at the mountain restaurants, trying to explain to a Frenchman that you are vegan may well fall on deaf ears. So be prepared, your choice may only be veg soup, salad or chips. Thie operator has offered a vegetarian option in their chalets for the past 26 years and continue to do so, on occasions they can adapt this to being vegan if it is not already. But it is hard for chalet hosts to produce elaborate vegan cuisine. The supermarkets do not have the same amazing choices we do in the UK, especially in the mountains. They are able to offer you dairy-free options of milk, yoghurt and maybe even ice cream, but there are no dairy-free cheeses and certainly no Linda Macartney sausages or similar choices available locally. Chalet hosts will do their very best to accommodate you. Please note our chalet hosts are not professional chefs.
They can provide:
- Gluten-Free breads for canapés and side dishes
- Gluten-Free flour
- Gluten-Free pastry
- Gluten-Free pasta
- Gluten-Free cakes
- Dairy-free spread & soy yoghurts
- Soy, Goats, rice and almond milk
- Dairy free cream
They cannot provide:
- Gluten-free cereals
- Rice or other flour types
- Specific organic items
- Any manufactured ‘Free from’ items (including sugar-free & vegan suitable)
- Quorn & other meat substitutes
For their Gluten-free guests they can provide gluten-free cakes, please note you may be served the same cake twice in a week.
However please note, extreme dietary requests may not be able to be met, so it is important you discuss any requests with us before you book as a chalet holiday.
In choosing to travel with this operator, you accept the following facts: That chalet hosts involved in catering, including for children’s meals, are generally not qualified catering professionals and that no food allergy system can ever have a 100% guarantee against any contact with specified food. Items such as eggs, dairy products and nuts are constantly present in kitchens and dining areas, so cross-contamination cannot be ruled out, chalet staff cannot police what snacks third parties, including other guests’ children, may bring into contact with the allergic person. Chalet staff may not be aware of precise food contents, where they do not speak the language in which the ingredients are labelled, for example. You will appreciate all staff adhere to all the Health & Safety measures required in chalet kitchens but the chalet cannot be regarded as a complete sterile area. They therefore cannot and do not guarantee the avoidance of specified ingredients, and cannot accept liability in the event of any dissatisfaction with special dietary arrangements, including the occurrence of an allergic reaction.
Please note that if you or your party leader fail to inform us of dietary requirements or allergies before your arrival, then this operator will struggle to provide these. There will be a late notification charge of €60 per person. This operator cannot guarantee the provision of a special diet on the first day of your holiday in the event of last-minute notice. Please note that our chalet staff have pre-purchased or ordered all the products and ingredients required for the week ahead.
