Overview of L' eco Des Montagnes

What Oliver loves…

  • The Evening Standard described this magnificent chalet as "one of the ten best chalets in the Alps" - and they weren't wrong!
  • Living room has sunken fireplace and breathtaking panoramic views
  • It's only 300m to the slopes, so you can maximize your skiing time!

What you should know…

  • It's in a fairly quiet location, so not great if you're looking to be at the centre of the action
  • It's 20 minutes to Meribel town centre
  • Ski in if snow permits otherwise its only a 5min walk to the slopes

Owned by former members of the British Ski Team, L'éco Des Montagnes has been described by The Evening Standard as "one of the ten best chalets in the Alps."

The real centerpiece of the chalet is the living room, with its sunken fireplace and breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding valley. This self-catered chalet sleeps 8-12. There are four wood-paneled bedrooms with brand new en-suite bathrooms and a small bedroom under the eaves with a half bath for kids or extra guests.

The brand new kitchen has dishwasher, double fridge, double oven, microwave, stove and plenty of storage space. There is a full service laundry room with two washing machines and dryer. Free English/French satellite TV and Internet is included, so there's plenty to do when you're not out on the piste!

Map, Location & Local Information

Situated in the heart of the world’s largest ski area, Meribel’s reputation has been built on its extensive choice of pistes and breath-taking scenery. This charming alpine resort spans the mountainside, with its lift system stretching up to an altitude of 2952 metres.

The highly efficient Three Valleys' lift system consists of over 200 ski lifts connecting eight resorts, so the vast choice of pistes will offer you something new every day. You are sure to find something suitable no matter your ability! Gentle beginners ski slopes line the lower valleys and more challenging blue, red and black runs can be found at the higher altitudes with dramatic views of the surrounding mountains.

In the Three Valleys area you will find 600km of piste in the Three Valleys area and 7 black runs, 23 red runs, 34 blue runs, 9 green runs & 31.5 km of cross country runs in the Meribel valley alone. With over 1250 snow cannons you're guaranteed snow throughout the season! There's also a great choice of mountain restaurants with spectacular views offering delicious lunch menus, snacks and apres ski.

The Resort

Méribel may well be the picture-postcard idea of a ski resort, thanks mainly to the insistence on maintaining chalet-style architecture throughout the town – you won’t find any concrete or tacky blocks of flats here. This gives Méribel a quaint, almost fairytale atmosphere, and it’s easily the most romantic looking of the resorts around the Trois Vallées.

Having said that, the snow at Méribel may not be quite as challenging or as robust as that found at Chamonix or Courchevel, and while there’s a great mix of difficulties for all skiers (and undoubtedly many miles of piste) the afternoon sun can cut things short on west-facing slopes – and untouched powder is rare unless you’re willing to get up at the crack of dawn. That’s not to say that the skiing at Méribel is bad (quite the opposite), it’s just that what the resort might lack in piste perfection it more than makes up for with other amenities – including a fantastic lift system that will rarely leave anyone waiting.

The après-ski scene at Méribel is also top-notch, but that’s hardly surprising considering many of the bars are owned and run by ex-pat Brits (who certainly know how to party!) A night on the tiles can err on the expensive side, but if you’re looking to let your hair down and have a truly electrifying night you’ll be well served.

 - Loads of lift and ski pass information can be found here.

 - There’s some great links to equipment hire here.

 - Closest airport: Chambery is the closest airport to Méribel at just over 60 miles away, with transfers to the resort starting at around €36 for a one-way coach trip.

Enjoy gourmet dining experiences with our new Chef Service!
We’re now offering our customers the chance to enjoy some unforgettable eats with our new Chef Service! Choose from booking a single sumptuous meal with a private chef for that special occasion, or hire a chef to cook your meals for all or part of your holiday - it’s as flexible as it is delicious.

A) Single Meal Service: A chef will travel to this villa and whip up a fantastic meal for you and your guests. The chef will arrive with all the necessary ingredients as well as the talent to turn them into something unforgettable. They’ll serve the meal and clear up afterwards - an easy and entertaining way to enjoy a top quality meal in your very own villa!

B) Full Chef Service: If you really want to kick back and relax, we can arrange for a chef to cater for the duration of your holiday (or part of it). With a range of options from simple family catering to full-on haute cuisine, we can organise a meal plan and a price to suit your needs. So why worry about self-catering when you can have everything taken care of?

Of course, before booking this service, we suggest you contact the property owner as they might already offer a similar cook or chef service in-house. To find out more simply visit www.oliverstravels.com/chefs.
