Stunning Le Grand Palandger is a must-stay-to-be-believed one-of-a-kind French chalet experience. Set just a short hop away from the heart of Méribel, Le Grand Palandger is an absolute delight.

Owned by former members of the British Ski Team, this beautiful five-bedroom chalet is spread across four levels and designed with every comfort in mind for skiers looking to enjoy a luxurious Alpine escape. Heralded around the world as one of the best chalets in the entire French Alps, the excitement for your stay at Le Grand Palandger starts long before you arrive.

Once you do arrive, you'll be hard-pressed not to fall in love with the sophisticated rustic charm of this delightful traditional chalet. Dressed in soft modern decor that perfectly compliments the traditional wood and grey brick interiors, Le Grand Palandger is truly a cut above the rest.

Recently renovated, Le Grand Palandger spares no expense when it comes to ensuring your comfort during your stay. Your entrance floor opens up to a warm welcoming entrance space with boot and equipment storage located at the end of the hallway.

Moving upstairs, you'll find your breath taken away by the majesty of the main floor - with a huge lounge dressed in comfortable sofas and chairs warmed by a large open fireplace at the centre of the room. Large grand windows surround the space, flooding it with natural light and allowing unrivalled views of the surrounding landscape. Through a door to the back of the room, a recently-modernised kitchen and dining space await. Your kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to prepare delicious homecooked meals while the large family-style table is perfect for enjoying them with your guests.

Your five bedrooms are spread across the chalet's different levels with the first bedroom tucked away on the main level. This comfortable twin room offers gorgeous views of the Méribel scenery and has a private en-suite bathroom. Two additional bedrooms are located on the top floor, one another double room with an en-suite bathroom and the other a double room with access to a shared bathroom.

The fourth bedroom is located alone on the lower level of the property, with two twin beds and access to a shared bathroom while bedroom five sits opposite the entrance hall, beneath the chalet's eaves, with twin beds and use of a shared bathroom.

Each bedroom is decorated simply and elegantly, helping you to get a good night's rest in maximum comfort.

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!

Beyond Le Grand Palandger, kids are sure to be well looked after during their visit to Méribel. As one of the more laid-back resorts in the French Alps, Méribel is quite popular with families looking to ease their kids into winter sports. Little ones and newcomers to the sport can find their bearings at the resort’s on-site ski school, with trained professionals who’ll help your little ones to find their ski legs in no time.

With no practice needed, you’ll also find a few slopes that are dedicated to sledging rather than skiing. So, if your kids fancy a change for an hour or two - let them loose on the slopes with nothing but a sledge and their own courage.
