Vieille Scierie, sleeps 15, Meribel
A comfortable self catered chalet with a hot tub sleeping 15 guests located in Meribel Les Allues
This chalet is one of a collection in the lovely village of Meribel Les Allues. Whilst not part of the main resort of Meribel itself, the village does have good ski access thanks to the Olympic gondola.
Chalet Vieille Sciere is situated in a great location just a few minutes’ walk to the Olympic gondola, giving skiers fast access to the 600km of pistes on offer. The small selection of shops and bars in Les Allues are also within easy reach.
The property is the perfect place to unwind after a long day exploring the vast 3 Valley ski area thanks to the welcoming log fire and outdoor hot tub too. There is also a second sitting area complete with TV and DVD player making this chalet a great choice for a group of several families.
All eight bedrooms are tastefully finished and all have full en-suite bathrooms and their own private balcony.
What's included in catering
5 x evening meals, 7 x breakfasts and 5 x afternoon tea
One of the best larger chalets for skiers looking to make their money go as far as possible. Don’t let the location put you off either, the driver service runs until 1am.
Food and wine continue to be an extremely important part of any catered holiday and we take great care to ensure that you will not be disappointed. The chalet chefs have years of experience working in private homes or in restaurants around the world and come to cook for you in your chalet. They will source the finest local ingredients to prepare mouth watering menus to suit your tastes, taking their inspiration from the specialities of Savoy and further afield.
The catered chalet prices include a hearty continental breakfast (porridge, cereal, yoghurt, fruit, croissants etc), homemade cake & tea after skiing and on five evenings each week, a four course dinner with wine. The chefs do not have a fixed menu but enjoy creating menus to suit your preferences. We provide a very good house wine and you may also upgrade this by buying from our carefully chosen wine list.
Two evenings a week you will enjoy the opportunity to sample one of the many local restaurants.
For children, we provide early children’s suppers.
