Built in 2005 this large stone and timber chalet benefits from a huge combined lounge dining area with vaulted ceilings connecting to a large south-facing outdoor terrace. Situated on a large 1817m2 site, it enjoys privacy and plentiful natural light. The chalet offers many wonderful and unique features and is tastefully decorated as well as very practical with a large garage and easy access. This chalet truly has a soul and a character all its own and will make a truly lovely home or second home for all seasons. Subject to planning permission the large site may allow the construction of a second chalet.

You enter the chalet by its upper floor. When standing in the entrance hall you have on your left a staircase that leads to the lower floor and on your right is the toilet. Right in front of you is the living room, with very large windows and a patio door, benefitting from a south-east exposure that provides a lot of natural light and great views. This room is welcoming and comfortable with two large sofas. Immediately as you arrive, your attention is drawn to the huge stone fireplace decorated with traditional Savoyard timber beams. From the living area you can access the large south facing terrace furnished with garden furniture which makes it the ideal place to enjoy the sunlight all day long. Further in the room, on the left, is the dining area. Near this area, behind an engraved wooden door there is another room currently used as a private bar. At the end of the living room is the fully equipped kitchen with a lot of storage. The kitchen has direct access to the east facing balcony.
On the lower floor there is a recess with a safe, and a corridor. When going down the stairs you will find in front of you a bathroom with a bath tub, a washbasin and a toilet. The first door in the corridor on the left leads to the garage with two parking spaces. There is also plenty of storage space. On the right of the corridor are the laundry room and the veranda which is located under the terrace. This veranda opens on the garden with south east exposure. It also leads to the basement that is currently used as a workshop, storage room, ski locker and boiler room. This room is really large since it extends fully under the chalet. The second door on the right leads to the dressing room. In the end of the first part of the corridor is the first double bedroom with a large wardrobe and a dresser. Attached to the room you will find a large ensuite bathroom with a walk-in shower and a freestanding clawfoot bath tub. The bathroom is shared with another double bedroom. At the end of the corridor on the right is the last double bedroom with en-suite bathroom. All three bedrooms have access to the east facing balcony and beautiful views on the mountains and the valley and therefore enjoy a lot of natural light. At the end of the corridor, you will find two more doors to the garage and a second “front” door. This slice of paradise, in the heart of the largest ski resort in the world, is located on more than 1800m2 land that could perhaps allow construction of a second chalet.
Three Valleys Ski Area
A beautiful place all year with highly defined seasons and quiet and tranquil out of the ski season when the crowds have gone home, and then suddenly once again each winter the mountains of the Three Valleys come alive with people enjoying this vast ski area..... the largest linked skiing in the world.
The Three Valleys ski domain provides more than 600km of runs and probably the same again off-piste. In fact it should now be called the Four Valleys with the link into Orelle (Maurienne Valley) which can be accessed by ski from Val Thorens. This has also opened up some extraordinary off-piste runs. The Three Valleys provides direct links between the ski resorts of St Martin de Belleville, Les Menuires, Val Thorens, Méribel, Mottaret, La Tania, Brides les Bains and the four Courchevel resorts, la Praz, 1550, 1650 and the world famous 1850 – and now Orelle, in the fourth valley - all under one ski pass offering on-piste skiing from 1300m all the way up to 3200m. As these figures show the Three Valleys ski area offers huge altitude differences favouring long run skiing.
It has an ultra efficient, state of the art ski lift system, quality piste preparation and a dense artificial snow making system (1920 snow cannons) complementing the excellent natural snow cover. However, if you are not a fan of downhill skiing or like some variety during your stay then you can also roam the domain at your leisure on foot, hiking along the marked trails, or using the pedestrian ski lift passes. Many trails have been created especially to enjoy the increasingly popular snowshoeing sport and to discover the valleys from a new perspective: flora, wildlife, monuments, and spectacular scenery.There are also many cross-country skiing tracks that are prepared and maintained each day. These allow you to take in the breathtaking scenery and provide the opportunity to appreciate the beauty of the mountains away from the pistes.
An interesting and wonderful area all year round, there is much more here than the snow sports.
Meribel Ski Resort
Méribel is one of most popular resorts in Europe for English-speaking skiers along with Courchevel and Val d’Isere.
Meribel is the central valley of the largest ski domain in the world, Les 3 Vallées.
With 600 km of groomed pistes, 85% of which are above 1800 metres, 25 accessible summits, 174 modern lifts and over 2090 snow cannons covering 43% of the ski area the statistics are impressive as is the skiing. However Méribel is much more than the 5 month winter ski season and an extended stay in summer or during the colours of autumn are needed to appreciate this.
The initial development of the ski resort in the late 1930’s was a British and French partnership and this acceptance of English speakers continues to this day. Méribel is now a much more diverse international community with a large percentage of residents or visitors speaking English as their main or second language.
The main village of Méribel is built on the eastern side of the valley between 1450 and 1700 metres and because of this it is surrounded by forests or grass & timbered slopes. The strict architectural codes of alpine sloping rooflines, timber and stone cladding compliments this setting and makes it one of, if not the most, attractive of all the large high altitude French ski resorts.
The other major “resort villages” are Méribel Mottaret (1750 m), Méribel Village (1400 m), Les Allues (1100m) and the spa town of Brides-Les-Bains (600 m) at the very bottom of the valley. There are many smaller villages or hamlets so the range of property covers all tastes from barn conversions & village houses through to ski apartments and super luxury ski in ski out chalets with private swimming pools. As well as the normal range of hotels, bars, restaurants & shops Méribel boasts a range of facilities and activities.
The Méribel Olympic Centre is home to a full size ice rink, indoor climbing wall, 25 metres indoor heated pool and water slide, conference centre, gymnasium and wellness centre of spa, steamrooms, etc.
There is a spectacular 18 hole Golf Course at 1700 metres and a huge range of other outdoor activities such as tennis, hiking, mountain biking, road cycling, paragliding, fishing, etc which are enjoyed in the warmer months. Méribel property is generally more expensive than other French resorts but not yet at the dizzy heights of Courchevel 1850 with perhaps the exception of a few of the most prestigious pockets.
As Méribel continues to become ever more popular with the big spenders of the world the strong capital growth experienced over many many years is likely to continue.
