Large groups of friends or family adore Chalet Snap Dragon with its fabulous character, its sensational snowy views and its special treats. It boasts eight gorgeous bedrooms, a bright and airy living space, a terrace with a hot tub and a sauna. The chalet enjoys a wonderful location in Mussillon, one of several charming hamlets close to the centre of the Meribel. With easy access to the Three Valleys ski area, Meribel is one of the most popular destinations for British skiers. Guests stay in typical, characterful, wooden chalets, admire spectacular mountain scenery, ski in one of the largest and most impressive ski domains in the world and let their hair down at the end of the day at one of the town’s renowned apres-ski bars. Meribel itself enjoys 150km of pistes and the Three Valleys, including Courchevel and Val Thorens gives access to a magnificent 600km of pistes. Meribel has retained its mountain village charm within a fabulous forest setting. Clad in wood, stone and slate, Mussillon’s chalets offer comfortable, rustic accommodation within easy reach of the town’s fantastic facilities including its Olympic sports complex, a wonderful array of shops, bars, ski hire shops and restaurants. All of the areas within Meribel are linked by a handy free shuttle bus. Chalet Snap Dragon is just a three minute walk from the bus service which will whisk you to the lifts in the centre at La Chaudanne in no time. Otherwise it is an eight to ten minute walk to the centre of this magical, lively town.

Chalet Snap Dragon’s eight bedrooms sleep up to fifteen guests in total. There are two double rooms, five twin rooms and one family room. The Chalet is very close to another that we feature in Mussillon, Chalet Baldwin, which sleeps up to eleven guests so if there is a big crowd of you, you could always book both chalets. You will have a ball in Meribel. Mussillon itself enjoys its wonderful ‘Brewer’s Den’ craft beer bar and its ‘O Sullivan’s’ bar and club, just three minutes from the chalet. Otherwise you can walk or take the free bus into town for your evening entertainment. Like most of the chalets in Meribel, the chalet is built of stone and timber and features pine wood throughout giving a warm and inviting traditional rustic feel.

On the ground floor you will discover a very welcome sauna, perfect for aching limbs. There is a handy ski room with heated boot rooms and plenty of space for equipment as well as three bedrooms. One of these is a large family suite with four single beds and an ensuite shower room. The bathrooms at this delightful chalet have all been modernised and are wonderful places for a long soak or a power shower. Most of the twin beds are next to each other forming large beds.

The first floor is home to your attractive living spaces. With lovely red accessories, the living room enjoys a very warm ambience. Comfy sofas sit by the roaring fireplace and television, huge floor-to-ceiling glass doors drown the space in light and give access to the terrace and there is a very sociable giant table and chairs at the far end. Just off the dining area is your kitchen with its wooden cabinetry and excellent appliances. There is plenty of space to prepare hearty breakfasts, afternoon teas and delicious evening meals.

After a tiring day on the slopes, there is nothing better than relaxing in your own outdoor hot tub with a glass of bubbles enjoying the magical snowy mountain views in front of you. It is such a treat. You just need to pop out to the terrace. If the sun is shining it is also a lovely spot for afternoon tea with a view. There is a table and some benches on the deck.

You will discover another three bedrooms on the second floor, one being the master with a double bed, a fireplace, balcony and an ensuite bathroom. It is a gorgeous, atmospheric room with brilliant views. The second room is another lovely double with a shower room and the final bedroom on this level is a gorgeous twin.

The final two bedrooms are on the third floor, again with beautifully dressed twin beds and an ensuite shower room. You do not need to pack dressing gowns as these are provided along with fluffy towels. Guests enjoy a mid stay clean at the chalet and a welcome basket and firewood on arrival. You will have a brilliant stay at Chalet Snap Dragon.

About the surrounding area of Chalet Snap Dragon
Loading map

Chalet Snap Dragon enjoys a fabulous, pretty location in the Mussillon area of Meribel. It is just an eight to ten-minute walk from the centre or you can take the free Meribel bus service to the centre, ski schools and the ski lifts. The vibrant centre of Meribel enjoys a cinema, swimming pool, spa, boutique shops, ski hire, bars, restaurants and nightclubs. La Chaudanne, in the lower part of the town, offers the famous Olympic sports complex where major sporting events take place as well as festive entertainment. As well as the pool and spa, it boasts an ice rink, climbing wall and a bowling alley for entertainment. La Chaudanne is also where you will find the ski lifts, ski school meeting points, an excellent creche and Le Piou-Piou children’s club. You can rent lockers in La Chaudanne and store ski equipment if you do not want to carry it every day. Meribel is very attractive, blending itself into its forest surroundings and using an authentic architectural style. The resort sits on the east side of the mountain with a good supply of sunshine throughout the day.

Meribel sits in the Tarentaise Valley in the French Alps within the western border of the Vanoise National Park. It is to the east of Chambery and south of Albertville. The resort was actually founded by a Scotsman, Peter Lindsay, as the Austrian resorts were becoming very popular in the years before the war. Although the development of the resort was halted during the war years, it recommenced in 1946 and it quickly became a very popular ski destination. Meribel boasts an excellent, fast and modern ski lift system offering easy access to the resort’s 150 km of pistes and the Three Valleys’ 600 km of pistes. It is very easy to ski over to the delightful Courcheval and the mighty Val Thorens. You can either buy a single resort lift pass keeping to the beginner and intermediate ski terrain or purchase one for the whole area. At its highest skiing point, Meribel reaches an altitude of 2952 metres and the descent into the town is incredibly scenic. Within Meribel, the Altiport area is best for beginners while Saulire and Tougnete are for mixed ability and the Mont du Vallon with its long, steep runs is great for advanced skiers. This is all against a gorgeous mountain backdrop. Meribel itself offers seventy-three ski runs of which nine are green, thirty are blue, twenty-six are red and eight are black. The resort also boasts plenty of off-piste entertainment and snow park activities such as snowboarding, jumps and freestyle skiing. There is a snowpark at Meribel Mottaret and a moon park. Other sports available at Meribel include ice skating, snowmobiles, hang gliding and ice climbing.

Meribel is renowned for its lively, vibrant nightlife. The apres-ski scene is great fun with many ex-pat Brits owning bars there. There are two excellent bars within a three-minute walk of Chalet Snap Dragon. The resort has a true alpine heart and looks very pretty. There are plenty of boutiques and other shops.

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!

Chalet Snap Dragon is perfect for large family groups, multi-generational families or perhaps two to three families. It sleeps up to fifteen guests in eight delightful bedrooms and offers a charming living space where children can watch a movie after a tiring day on the mountain. Children love the outdoor hot tub too!

Meribel is an excellent ski resort for families. You can buy family ski passes which can make the holiday a little cheaper. In the centre, La Chaudanne is wonderful with an outstanding complex, Parc Olympique which offers a swimming pool, gym, ice rink, spa, climbing wall, bowling alley and night club as well as an excellent medical centre. The ski lifts leave from La Chaudanne and it is a frequent meeting place and the place for many ski schools. With plenty of green, blue and red runs, Meribel is great for families. The Altiport area is a lovely way to introduce children to the slopes. Its Moon Wild route is very gentle and very pretty through the forest. Children also love the themed areas and snowparks. The Inuit village in the Altiport area enjoys banked turns, a mini slalom course and themed games. The moon park boasts ten hectares of obstacles to practice on and take jumps for those that are looking for more of a thrilling ski. Le P’tit Moon is a designated area for young skiers aged between six and twelve years old. If they are tired after morning ski lessons, there are some delightful picnic areas at the start of the Saulire Express and below the Pas du Lac gondola in Mottaret. During the school holidays, the French ski school ESF operate a torch-lit descent that children love.

Sledging is very popular. There are designated areas for it as well as a fully secure area dedicated to sledging for little kids. You can also sledge at the Rond Point area where there is a magic carpet to take you back to the top of the slope! There is even night sledging in Meribel Mottaret. You can sledge down the Himalaya green slope back down into the centre of Meribel Mottaret.

Children love popping into a wonderful ‘Kenothèque’ family centre with Méribel’s mascot, Kenotte. You will find fairytale readings, games, arts and crafts, Kapla wooden constructions, books, drawing contests, make-up sessions, and many other surprises and highlights of the week on offer. Children also enjoy igloo building and cheese fondue nights which are available during school holidays for seven to twelve-year-olds. The sports complex offers bowling for children aged three and over. There is free entry to under fives at the ice rink and swimming pool.
