Ski chalet in Méribel

Ski chalet in Méribel


This week Stephanie Sheldrake falls for an Alpine chalet in Méribel

Savoie, Rhône-Alpes


This four-bedroom chalet in the world-famous ski resort of Méribel would not only be a dream property, but would be a dream change in lifestyle. I’m not traditionally one for winter sports, but I can easily see why they appeal, especially in this part of the Alps: breathtaking mountain slopes covered in sparkling snow, exhilarating descents with the sun on your face and the crisp air filling your lungs. Yes, I could become a convert, and this property would make the perfect base.

Situated in the pretty ski village of Les Allues, part of the Méribel ski resort, this detached chalet has beautiful views across the valley, and a gondola link to the famous Trois Vallées ski area.

Laid out over three floors, the property is light and bright and the main rooms benefit from fine views. Entrance to the chalet is via the first floor which has a spacious open-plan living room with kitchen and dining areas, a large open fireplace and access to a sunny balcony. This would be the perfect space for entertaining – after all, skiing is as much a social pursuit as a sporting one.

On the second floor, there is a master bedroom with en suite and balcony, a further double bedroom with a balcony and a family bathroom. I could happily imagine waking up and drawing back the curtains to the dramatic view of the mountains before taking to the slopes for an adrenalin-fuelled, life-affirming blast of fun in one of the most famous ski locations in the world.

On the ground floor are two more bedrooms and a bathroom, so there is plenty of accommodation for friends and family.

On the market at €850,000, this chalet’s price tag reflects its popular location and high quality, but similar properties are hard to find in this price range, so there are lots of good reasons to be tempted.

Don’t fancy an Alpine chalet? How about this impressive house in Tarn-et-Garonne in south-west France?
