Overview

Fully Catered Ideal for Kids

Chalet Belle Hélène is an inviting and beautifully appointed apartment just outside the heart of Méribel. It provides easy access to both the village centre and the chairlift that will take you right into the Altiport skiing area.

Cosy and intimate, this apartment-style rental is located on the second floor of a beautiful Alpine building. Comfort is the key theme here, with tactile furnishings offering warmth to an already snug space.

Take the weight off your feet as you relax back into one of the living room's soft sofas or armchairs. Undoubtedly the main focal point is the stunning log fire, which is sure to warm you up after a day spent skiing. The dining area shares this fantastic open-plan space and features a bench-style table, small kitchen and direct access to a private balcony. With the chalet being fully catered, you can enjoy services such as energising breakfasts and three-course evening meals.

Characterful and restful, each of the three bedrooms welcome you to fall into peaceful sleep at the end of long days. One of them is enchantingly accessed via a hidden door in the living room bookcase, and another enjoys use of its own well-appointed en-suite shower room.

Your private balcony is the perfect place to either start the day or end it with a drink as the sun sets behind mountain peaks. It's truly ideal for soaking up the atmosphere that surrounds the apartment.

Skiing practically starts from the doorstep at Chalet Belle Hélène, with a popular run that leads into village being just a few minutes walk away. Also close to the apartment are a couple of well-known après ski spots offering live music.

Restaurants are within easy walking distance, with the village's main square bursting with choice. A good range of shops offer you the chance to indulge in some retail therapy during time spent away from the slopes.

      The Resort

      Méribel is a village with a true alpine heart. You won’t find blocks of hotels and purpose-built facilities here. Instead, the compact and lively town centre is picture-postcard perfect, and its atmosphere is quaint and fairytale-like. It is without a doubt the most romantic resort in the area and if you’re planning a couples holiday in the snow you’ll definitely want to take a closer look at Méribel. 

      At the centre of the world famous Trois Vallées (Three Valleys), Méribel makes up part of the largest ski domain in the world. Across the valleys, it has six sister resorts. You can either get a single-resort lift pass and keep to the fantastic beginner and intermediate terrain there, but you also have the option of purchasing a pass that covers the whole area. 

      The advanced lift system at Méribel will let you maximise your time on the snow and make sure you’re not waiting around in queues. With 67 runs to try out just in the resort itself, there is no time to be wasted. Just beware of the afternoon sun cutting things short on the west-facing slopes and prepare to get up with the sun if you’re after untouched powder. At it’s highest skiing point Méribel reaches an altitude of 2952 metres and the descent from this point is known to be one of the most scenic runs around.

      Aside from the world-class skiing, Méribel is also known to be one of the liveliest resorts in the Three Valleys. Many of its residents and bar-owners (as well as plenty of its visitors) are expat-Brits who certainly know how to party. The après-ski scene here is truly top-notch!

      There are many ski schools dotted across the resort that cater for children, with most being within a 10-minute drive of the apartment. Some offer not just skiing lessons, but also a mix of indoor and outdoor games to keep the little ones happy and entertained.

      Children will love the experience of a horse-drawn sleigh ride though the forests and snowy landscapes of the Méribel resort. There's also sledding and tobogganing, with many nature walks to enjoy too.

      The Olympic sports complex (2km) features a swimming pool, ice rink, bowling alley and climbing wall amongst many other activities.
