Lou Traves, sleeps 14-17, Meribel

A comfortable chalet with a hot tub and sauna offering outstanding value for money


Chalet Lou Traves is a rustic Savoyard chalet, located in the tranquil Mussillon district of Meribel and close to another of our chalet collection, Chalet Castor. Meribel sits at the heart of the vast Three Valleys, the World’s largest ski area. Chalet Lou Traves is in a great position from which to explore this wonderful ski area, with the bus stop just a three minute walk from the chalet which will whisk you in no time at all down to the lift base at the Chaudanne. Meribel is a vibrant resort, with fabulous après-ski scene, some fantastic restaurants and excellent shopping. The centre of this bustling resort is just an 8-10 minute walk from the chalet, or a quick hop on the ski bus. A little closer to the chalet, at just 3 minutes walk away are the popular après spots, ‘Brewers Den’ craft beer bar and ‘O’Sullivans’ bar and club.

With eight bedrooms, sleeping up to fifteen guests, chalet Lou Traves is a lovely property that would make the perfect base for a family or friends looking to explore the wonderful resort of Meribel. The exterior of the chalet is built of stone and timber, with a typically Savoyard interior of wood panelled walls and exposed wooden beams. 

The chalet is set over four floors, with entrance to the chalet on the ground floor, where upon entering there is a ski room with heated boot rooms, perfect for ensuring you’ve got toasty warm boots before hitting the slopes each day. On the ground floor, you’ll also find the sauna, the perfect spot in which to ease any aches and pains after a tiring day on the mountain. 

Three of the eight comfortable bedrooms are located on the ground floor. The first is a large family suite, made of four single beds (90 x 190cm) with an en-suite shower room and WC. There are two further bedrooms on the ground floor, each with two single beds (90 x190cm) and each with its own en-suite shower room and WC. There are three more bedrooms on the second floor, one of which has two single beds (90 x 190cm) and the other two bedrooms both have a large double bed (140 x 190cm), one with a bathroom and balcony, the other with a shower room. The final two bedrooms are on the third floor, each with two single beds (90 x 190cm) and en-suite shower room and WC. 

The living room, dining room and kitchen are all located on the first floor. The living is comfortable, warm and cosy thanks to the inviting open fireplace and comfortable sofas and chairs. There is a flat screen television in the living room, perfect if you’re feeling tired and fancy a relaxing evening watching a good film in front of the fire. The dining room and living room are open plan, which creates a lovely communal space in which to enjoy this chalet. Outside of the dining room is a good sized balcony from which you can enjoy the magnificent views of the Meribel Valley. The kitchen is separate and fully equipped with oven, hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, kettle, toaster and cafetière, so you’ll have everything you need to whip up a feast for all the family. Outside of the living and dining room on the spacious terrace, there is an outdoor Jacuzzi, the perfect place to unwind with a drink after a day on the mountains. 

If you need to stay connected for work or to stream your favourite TV shows, there is free Wi-Fi throughout the chalet apartment. If you are travelling by car, there is space to park one car in front of the chalet.
