Luxury Chalets in Meribel
There have been luxury chalets in Meribel ever since it gained popularity in the 1950's. Initially these beautiful properties were built on the aptly named Route des Chalets which is a pretty back road leading up the resort from behind the main square up to Meribel 1600. During the 60's and 70's the Route des Chalets was developed with beautiful stand alone luxury chalets, most of which have fantastic views across the valley and are situated just a short walk from the edge of the home piste. Some of these first privately owned luxury chalets in Meribel have been unmodified since they were built but others have been lovingly refurbished and modernised - these are today the most prized properties in the resort.
During the 1980's the new wave of luxury chalets in Meribel were either constructed in the Belvedere area above the resort (very handy for accessing the pistes) or in the Mussillon area which is a large residential area situated at the entrance to the resort. Today the international ski resort of Meribel has grown far beyond being the small, pretty ski village that it once was. However, despite growing into a mega resort it retains much of its charm and character as a chalet resort. Englishman, Peter Lindsay, came across Meribel in 1938 and later returned in 1946 with architect Christian Durupt. Since then strict guidelines have been laid down for Meribel to retain all its Savoyarde style - as a result, all the principal buildings and luxury chalets in Meribel have been built with the traditional local stone, slate and wood.
We have a great selection of luxury chalets in Meribel and a few of them we show below. If you want a luxury chalet with a swimming pool then you have to look at Courchevel. However, if you are just looking for an outstanding luxury alpine home (perhaps with a hot tub) with access to the centre of the Trois Vallees ski area then Meribel has some stunning chalets to choose from.

This is a comment from one of our clients who stayed in the luxury Chalet Sorbier in Meribel
"The chalet was in a great location, virtually ski in/out, most unusual for Meribel. Access to slopes was along a snow-covered path, as was access to/from the minibus and town, which made for an interesting 'drag' of our bags from the bus to the chalet [they could invest in some basic sledges to assist here...]. Beautiful views over town, the slopes and up the valley from the chalet, large terrace and hot-tub. Rooms were very nicely presented and spacious, especially upstairs. Downstairs bedrooms slightly more cramped, especially if the chalet was full (10 people). Ditto the living and eating areas. Food was SPECTACULAR - hosts were chefs out of season, and it showed.
"The search facility on the Alpine Luxury Chalets' site is the best of all the ski holiday websites. Sarah Revell was amazingly responsive, almost instantaneous, and always helpful and dealt with my queries precisely and efficiently. And very patient with my procrastinating! Could have booked direct with the operator but opted to do it through you so that you could get the commission. You are is always my first port of call in my search for a chalet each year."
When we get comments like that we know we are on the right track. We very much hope that we can be of the same service to you.
