A top-floor, penthouse apartment boasting a fantastic position at the top of Méribel, Chalet L'Etincelle offers charming accommodation that is characterfully and traditionally decorated. Being right by a piste means you have instant ski-in/ski-out access down to the main Chaudanne lift station.

As well as being incredibly well-connected, Chalet L'Etincelle is also a truly welcoming place to call home during your time in Méribel. This duplex-apartment style rental is furnished with beautiful wood furniture, which complements the warm colours and other natural materials used throughout.

Perfect for sociable gatherings, the living/dining space is open plan and features an impressive high-pitched ceiling. It's flooded with light by day, thanks to the glass doors and large windows. And when evening comes, the open log fire creates a cosy and intimate feel for enjoying drinks after a long day spent skiing. There's also plenty of comfortable seating for everyone to take the weight off their feet.

The bench-style dining table is suited to atmospheric meals by candlelight, with the well-equipped kitchen conveniently close by. Fantastic catering services include three-course evening meals, champagne and canapés on arrival and departure, and a selection of house wines.

All four of the spacious and restful bedrooms have en-suite facilities, with two also offering direct balcony access. Another outside space can be enjoyed from the living/dining space, with doors opening straight out onto a balcony.

As Chalet L'Etincelle is situated away from Méribel centre, it's a much quieter spot to enjoy a laidback stay. However, some popular bars that offer live music and après ski are both just a short ski away. Bus stop is also nearby and will get you around the resort for free (with lift pass).

Other après ski spots are within easy reach of the apartment, as are several restaurants serving a range of delicious dishes. Found at the heart of Méribel are shops, ski schools and the fantastic Olympic sports complex with activities such as ice skating, swimming and bowling on offer.

Méribel offers some of the best skiing in the world - and so has become one of the largest and most popular resorts of this famous ski region. So, it's not surprising that it's bursting with great shops, bars, restaurants and nightclubs to suit every need.

Chalet L'Etincelle occupies a prime position for getting out and skiing in no time at all, with instant ski-in/ski-out access. It sits on the edge of a piste that leads down to Chaudanne; meaning access to the vast Three Valleys is incredibly convenient.

As it's away from the main hub that is Méribel town centre, you can make the most of the more laidback atmosphere that Chalet l'Etincelle provides. However, the area still has its attractions, with a well-known après ski and live music bar just a 10-minute walk/ski away.

Those new to skiing will find the Altiport area (2km) the best for getting to grips with it, as it features quieter, wide nursery slopes. There are runs to suit everyone at Méribel, so you're sure to find one that's right for you. Several skiing schools cater for children and will teach them the basics, with some of them also offering a range of other activities.

The Olympic sports complex (2.5km) is a great place to go if the conditions aren't ideal for skiing. Facilities here include a swimming pool, climbing wall, bowling alley, ice rink, spa and gym.

And skiing isn't the only way to enjoy the picturesque scenery of the Méribel resort either. Take a horse-drawn sleigh ride through the forested areas, whizz around on a snowmobile, or simply go for long walks around the resort.

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!

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens Ideal for Xmas/NY

The Méribel resort is great for even very young children who want to learn to ski, as there are several ski schools catering for all ages and abilities. Many can be easily reached by bus or car from the apartment. Some also offer indoor and outdoor games alongside skiing lessons.

Family experiences other than skiing at Méribel include taking a horse-drawn sleigh ride through the resort's stunning landscapes, sledding and tobogganing. You can also enjoy many scenic nature walks.

Indoor, children-friendly activities are available at the well-equipped Olympic sports complex (2.5km). Make the most of the bowling alley, ice rink, climbing wall and swimming pool – as well as many other facilities.
