Great value, charming village chalet with private garden and superb views. Interesting extension possibilities
- In ski resort
- Mountain views.
- Open parking belonging to the property.
- Balcony, terrace or garden providing an area large enough for dining.
This charming chalet is situated in a small village adjacent to the main village of Les Allues. Its much sought after position, at the edge of the buildable land, means uninterrupted views to the north, and the surrounding peaks, and creates an atmosphere of calm and tranquility. With its own private parking for 2 cars and potential for extension this is a great opportunity to acquire a fantastic project at a reasonable price.
The chalet is accessed via a short path from the parking area. The main entrance is on the the ground floor and opens into a cloakroom. A short corridor leads to the guest bedroom with ensuite bathroom. Opposite one finds the laundry and a storage area. The corridor opens out into a spacious salon currently used as an office. Beyond is another room currently used for storage but which could easily be transformed into an extra bedroom.
A wooden spiral staircase leads up to the living dining area with plenty of windows giving light and views to the north, and a spacious terrace and balcony. The terrace also has direct access to the garden area via a flight of steps. The well equipped kitchen is also on this level, along with an office added in the early 90s which could again be converted into a bedroom.
Another flight of stairs brings one to the master bedroom with its own balcony and ensuite bathroom on the second floor level. The original chalet dates from the late seventies and the current owners have performed a major refit in the early 90s, including plumbing, electrics and roof insulation. Current planning permission allows for a further 80m² of surface area to be added (subject to local authority approval) giving the potential for a magnificent property in a wonderful location.
The chalet is located only 10 minutes’ walk from the centre of Les Allues with its shops and amenities many of which are open year round. Les Allues is the starting point for the free shuttle service which operates both summer and winter allowing skiers easy access to Méribel centre and onto the world famous 3 valley ski domain. Alternatively a 10 minute walk will take one to the Olympe bubble, operating winter only, which also gives direct access to the Chaudanne and the Three Valleys beyond. Les Allues is located only 12km from Moutiers railway station (TGV/Eurostar during wintertime). The airports of Grenoble (170km), Lyon (175km) and Geneva (135km) are also conveniently located (approx. 2 hours) as well as the seasonal winter airport of Chambery (95km) which is just over an hour away.
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.
