Chalet Varappe, Meribel, France

Season 2020-2021: If you book a holiday and it includes a flight then you have booked a package holiday and you are protected by the Package Travel Regulations. These mean that if your accommodation cannot be provided you are either offered an alternative of the same quality, or a cash refund, or the chance to book again at a later date. As we have seen from experience any monetary refund may take a few months to be paid out but in the meantime your money is protected by the ATOL scheme.

From the moment you walk into luxury Chalet Varappe you know that you are somewhere rather spectacular. Originally built by Mr Pomagalski (founder of the world-leading Poma lift company), much of the chalet interior is clad in the wood cleared when building the lift system in Meribel. The chalet has until now been a private home; we are delighted to be able to add it to our portfolio of very exclusive chalets.

A stand alone chalet with delightful terraces and garden offering a wonderful view of the mountains, the chalet sleeps 10 guests in supreme comfort, in 5 lovely bedrooms, each with en-suite bath or shower room. Each room has an individual style and character; making them delightful. There is an additional attic bedroom which is suitable for 2 or more small children.

The heart of the chalet is the delightful sitting room, with its beautiful stone fireplace, stunning artworks and antiques, and decorated with quintessential English charm. Surrounded by such extravagance and refinement, you can't help but feel like a treasured, personal guest.

The chalet also offers a wonderful cedar wood outdoor hot tub, a steam room, TV / games room and, of course, a large ski and boot room.

La Varappe is a six minute walk from the centre of town. However, there is also the private minibus service if you don't feel like the walk.

We think you will be absolutely charmed by this wonderful chalet.

There are 3 members of staff who live out.

We say...
Chalet Varappe is a proper old fashioned luxury chalet. The decor is a mix of traditional English country house and European aristocratic estate. Large squishy sofas, deep luxurious decor colours, old original paintings and a warm welcoming atmosphere. It's crying out for the weather to turn nasty and for the staff to light the large open fireplace. What better chalet to be in during a mid winter snowstorm?
