    Chalet Chardon is a firm favourite in Meribel, this chalet sleeps fourteen people in seven bedrooms and it is situated in the very centre of Meribel.

    The chalet has the most spectacular and uninterrupted views of the mountains and ski runs from the large sun terrace. There is a large and comfy living and dining area with doors leading onto the terrace, here you will find a jacuzzi hot tub. All seven bedrooms have plush carpet and modern bathrooms, almost all have large walk-in showers and balconies, and there is one room with a bath. There is also a sauna and games room.

    The chalet is only available for sole use only.


    Meribel is a large and scattered resort, don't be confused, there are many smaller villages such as Raffort, Chandon and Les Allues, up to 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 around 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. Located in the heart of Meribel, this chalet is already an established favourite in the centre of town and is only a 5-minute walk to the town centre. There is a minibus to the slopes at the beginning and end of the day.

    Dietary Requests

    The nature of a catered chalet holiday has traditionally been a set menu for the whole chalet during the week. This is the element that allows them to provide competitively priced catered holidays in the first-class Ski Resort of Meribel. Chalet menus are set as this enables them to maximise their buying power and to train chalet hosts to deliver a consistently high standard of delicious food.

    This operator has found recently that requests for dishes/food outside of our set menus have increased and become more complicated. They often involve ingredients that are not readily available in ski resorts, (or are expensive if they are) or need to be prepared in addition to the normal set menus delivered by our hosts.

    They have often not been notified in advance of someone requiring vegetarian food for example. Please note our chalet hosts are not professional chefs.

    There is a charge for some dietary requests. Whilst there is not a charge for every type of dietary requirement, if any request is not pre-booked you will be charged in the resort.

    Having costs for dietary requests means this operator can be better prepared. This ensures we can continue to offer ski holidays at such incredible prices whilst still producing are delicious menus.

    They are not alone in introducing costs for dietary requests and the majority of their competitors already do so.

    However please note, that not all dietary requests can be met. If you are on a diet, then a chalet holiday might not be your best option, however, you can choose what you eat from our menu. You must discuss any requests with us before you book as a chalet holiday may not be right for you.

    Important Information

    Ingredients are not always clearly evident on labels, particularly when taking into account translation discrepancies, they cannot guarantee to avoid specified ingredients.

    Food allergies

    They cannot guarantee the complete avoidance of specific foodstuffs (for example nuts) and therefore cannot accept any liability in the event of an allergic reaction. Please note chalet hosts are not professional chefs.

    Vegan Diet

    They do not charge for a vegan diet, but France/Ski resorts don't tend to be vegan friendly, with almost every menu featuring cheese fondue and cured meats. The choice is limited during the day at restaurants, trying to explain to a Frenchman that you are vegan may well fall on deaf ears, so be prepared as your choice may only be veg soup, salad, or chips. They have offered a vegetarian option in their chalets for the past 30 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 our 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 can 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. Our hosts will do their very best to accommodate you.

    Likes and Dislikes

    Chalet staff can’t take notes and cater to people’s food likes and dislikes. The set menus are varied and made from local and fresh produce, you can choose what you would like to eat from those. Chalet hosts are not professional chefs and don't have the time or resources to make a variety of different dinners for people each evening.

    Please note that if you or your party leader fail to inform us of dietary requirements or allergies before your arrival, then we will struggle to provide these. There will be a late notification charge 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 has pre-purchased or ordered all the products and ingredients required for the week ahead.
