    , nights

    Chalet Castors is a rustic Savoyard chalet, located in the tranquil Mussillon district of Meribel and close to another of our chalet collection, Chalet Lou Traves. Meribel sits at the heart of the vast Three Valleys, the World's largest ski area. Chalet Castors is in a great position from which to explore this wonderful ski area, with the bus stop just a three minute walk from the chalet which will whisk you in no time at all down to the lift base at the Chaudanne. Meribel is a vibrant resort, with fabulous après-ski scene, some fantastic restaurants and excellent shopping. The centre of this bustling resort is just an 8-10 minute walk from the chalet, or a quick hop on the ski bus. A little closer to the chalet, at just 3 minutes walk away are the popular après spots, Brewers Den' craft beer bar and O'Sullivans' bar and club.

    The Chalet

    With five bedrooms, sleeping up to 11 guests, chalet Castor is a lovely property that would make the perfect base for a family or friends looking to explore the wonderful resort of Meribel. The exterior of the chalet is built of stone and timber, with a typically Savoyard interior of wood panelled walls and exposed wooden beams.

    The chalet is set over three floors, with entrance to the chalet on the ground floor, where upon entering there is a ski room with heated boot rooms, perfect for ensuring you've got toasty warm boots before hitting the slopes each day.

    Two of the five comfortable bedrooms are located on the ground floor. The first is a large family suite, made of two single beds (90 x 190cm) and bunk beds (90 x 190cm) with an en-suite shower room and WC. The second bedroom contains just one single bed (90 x 190cm) and also has its own en-suite shower room and WC. There are three more bedrooms on the second floor, one of which has two single beds (90 x 190cm) and the other two bedrooms both have a large double bed (140 x 190cm).

    The living room, dining room and kitchen are all located on the first floor. The living is comfortable, warm and cosy thanks to the inviting open fireplace and comfortable sofas and chairs. There is a flat screen television in the living room, perfect if you're feeling tired and fancy a relaxing evening watching a good film in front of the fire. The dining room and living room are open plan, which creates a lovely communal space in which to enjoy this chalet. Outside of the dining room is a good sized balcony from which you can enjoy the magnificent views of the Meribel Valley. The kitchen is separate and fully equipped with oven, hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, kettle, toaster and cafetière, so you'll have everything you need to whip up a feast for all the family.

    If you need to stay connected for work or to stream your favourite TV shows, there is free Wi-Fi throughout the chalet apartment. If you are travelling by car, there is space to park one car in front of the chalet.

    Classic Contactless Catering Service

    This operator presents the next generation of chalet holidays, for a contactless world. Your chalet will be ready on arrival - beds made, dinner ready and fridges stocked*, wine-cellars replenished, skis and lift passes all booked. But you won't see them. They'll be at the end of the phone, but there will be no contact unless you need it. You and your family will be safe and looked after, as they work in the background, providing everything you need.

    Their contactless catering service comes with the choice of two pricing options, a fixed menu with food and drink included in the price, and our à la carte option which allows you greater flexibility to eat and drink whatever you desire and the cost of the food is on supplement, at cost price, and depending on what produce you choose to order.

    For those looking for a simple packaged chalet price, they are offering an all-inclusive price, which includes rental of the chalet and your food and drink for the week. Included will be breakfast, afternoon tea, a three-course dinner on 6 out of 7 nights, plus unlimited wine and some beers. They have prepared a delicious menu for the week, with a mix of ready prepared meals from a local delicatessen and easy to cook dishes or sides. All that will be required from you is to pop a few things in the oven and throw together a few ingredients to make a simple salad, or steam a few vegetables as sides to your main meal.

    Perhaps you want the freedom to choose your own menus, or perhaps you'd prefer to eat out more than one evening during the week, or you just love to cook yourself and enjoy the holidays where you have time to do this in a relaxed way. That's where our à la carte contactless catering service comes in. As an alternative to the service detailed above, this operator will also offer a lower rate, which does not include the food and drink for the week and we will give you the opportunity to order the food and drink of your choice, at the local hypermarket rates, and bill you for this afterwards. Four days before arrival, you will receive a comprehensive provisions list with everything you could possibly need for your holiday. That might be oven-ready meals, or the ingredients you'll need for Bolognaise, Soufflés or Cheese Fondues. Dry goods, dairy, fresh fruit and veg, fresh meat or fish, beers, wines, champagne, whatever, all bought for you and stocked in advance.

    The aim is to provide the safest possible environment for a ski holiday, whilst staying as affordable as possible. The new way to holiday will be by enjoying the facilities, food and beverages but without the staff waiting on you hand and foot. That will keep things safe and affordable. However, for those in search of a little more luxury, this operator is able to provide drivers, chefs, daily cleaning, ski lessons etc, all of which can be discussed at the time of booking or with their concierge service prior to arrival.

    What's Included?

    Beds made on arrival, with bathrobes and slippers, mid-week and end of stay cleaning, satellite TV and free wifi. Our contactless catering service, where we shop, deliver and stock your kitchen before your arrival and half-way through your stay.*

    *The backstage team's work of organising and delivering provisions and cleaning the chalet is all included in the marked chalet price. If you choose the “Contactless catering service”, the price also includes all your food and drink for the week. We will provide you with breakfast every day, afternoon tea and snacks, pre-dinner nibbles, plus a three-course dinner on six of the seven nights, which also includes unlimited red and white wine and a few beers.

    **Please note that for the à la carte option, all food, drink, ski hire and lift passes come at additional costs and are not included in the chalet price. Provisions will be billed at cost price and can be ordered from the list that will be sent out to you, and ski hire and lift passes can be booked in advance with our preferential rates. For our fixed menu option, the price does not include ski hire and lift passes, but it does include breakfast and afternoon tea for 7 days, plus a 3-course dinner with beer and wine for 6 days.

    Important Covid-19 refund promise

    It’s an exceptional year which requires exceptional booking conditions. This operator will allow free cancellation up until a week prior to arrival for their 2020/21 Ski Chalet Holidays. If you have to cancel in the 7 days prior to arrival due to government enforced restrictions to travel or movement (a travel ban between your place of residence and destination; self-isolation rulings or a lockdown in your place of residence or resort closure) they will allow you to defer the booking, at the same price, to the next year, or keep all monies paid as a holiday credit on any holiday with this operator for the following 2 years.

    A copy of the full terms and conditions are available on request.

    Please Note - This operator features two types of Contactless Catering, Classic and Premium. Please see the description above for full details on which of these two options is included with this holiday.

    Chalet holidays are not new, but how they will work in Covid-times (and after Brexit) has required new thinking. This winter this operator will launch the next generation of Chalet Holidays for a contactless world. This chalet will be ready on arrival - beds made, dinner ready, fridges stocked, wine-cellars replenished, skis and lift passes all booked. But you won’t any staff. They’ll be at the end of the phone, but there will be no contact. You and your family will be safe and looked after, as they work in the background, providing everything you need.

    How it works

    Four days before arrival you'll be sent a comprehensive provisions list with everything you would want for your holiday. That might be oven-ready meals or the ingredients you’ll need for Bolognaise, Soufflés or Cheese Fondues. Dry goods, dairy, fresh fruit and veg, fresh meat or fish, beers, wines, whatever, all bought for you and stocked in advance. Beds will be made, bathrobes and slippers in the bathrooms, logs in the fireplace. Midweek, when you are out skiing, the professional concierge team will be back. Towels changed, beds made, chalet fully cleaned, fridge restocked.

    Is it expensive?

    Of course, there’s a cost for providing the services but it’s built into the price. The provisions collected in advance will be billed transparently at cost price with no mark-up. However, the whole chalet will be better value than you’ll have paid last year. Why? Because you’ll be paying local professional staff to provision, clean and care for your chalet.

    What if you want more?

    This operator will aim to provide the safest possible environment for a ski holiday, whilst offering affordability that is more important than ever. The new way to holiday will be by enjoying the facilities, food and beverages but without the staff waiting on you hand and foot. That will keep things safe and affordable. However, for those in search of a little more luxury, this operator is able to provide drivers, chefs, daily cleaning, ski lessons etc, all of which can be discussed on booking or with our concierge service prior to arrival.

    What measures are in place for protecting us from Covid?

    Chalet teams have cleaning and safety protocols to follow and this operator has reinforced the cleaning process with the recommended products to ensure the safety for all. Particular attention is paid to frequent points of contact (door handles, remote controls, light switches…). The chalet is thoroughly aired prior to arrival and staff wear masks and gloves at all time whilst working.
