• An impressive 15-bed chalet
• Open fireplace
• Great value
Chalet Martine is a traditional alpine property offering skiing virtually to and from the door which is a rarity in Meribel! This welcoming ski chalet is also close to the excellent Rond Point après ski and slope side bars. The chalet offers a good standard of accommodation with a log fire in the dining room and the sitting room. Expect sunny south-facing terraces with magnificent mountain views.
The ski slopes of the Rond Point are about 50 metres away from the chalet which gives immediate access to the central Chaudanne area for ski school and route-one access to the very best 3 Valleys skiing including links to Courchevel and the excellent ski domain of La Tania.
Almost all levels of skier can ski right from the chalet, but complete beginners may need to take the free shuttle bus for the first few days which stops very close to the chalet for the short ride to the Chaudanne for the ski school meeting point.
The Chalet enjoys a peaceful location but is still only a stone's throw from the excellent Rond Point après ski bars, ski shops and supermarket whch are approx 2-3 mins walk away.
A good day on the mountains starts with one very important meal. To kick off your day, we serve a daily breakfast with hot options on most days to set you up for all the snow you can handle.
Nothing beats a freshly-baked cake and afternoon tea when you get back in from the slopes in the afternoon and our delicious three-course meals with unlimited wine until dessert are served 5 nights a week, leaving you free to explore the local restaurants for staff nights off.
There are 8 bedrooms, mostly ensuite.

Meribel truly is a gem in the heart of the 3 Valleys ski area. It’s well preserved rustic charms are all thanks to Colonel Peter Lindsay who started the resort in 1938 and since then has fastidiously stuck to his original plans of a genuine alpine village. The nightlife is vibrant and the pistes extensive and varied.
As ever, meat cheese and potatoes are very popular here. This is something that has still remained a trait of the Alps although the necessity of eating these calorific meals isn’t quite as crucial as it was. There are plenty of other types of cuisine on offer here and if you like to play it safe then don’t worry, Meribel has been catering admirably for us Brits for seventy years.
The Allodis Hotel: This is definitely one for special occasions. Based in Belvedere, the standard of food here is high – choose the set menus for the best value.
Chez Kiki: Consistently served up the best steaks in the Alps for at least 30yrs now. Your steak will be grilled to perfection in front of your very eyes over an open fire then served with delicious local side dishes.
La Taverne: Located in the centre of Meribel this comfortable restaurant has all bases covered. Whether it’s a snack or a full blown three course meal La Taverne can deliver. Affordable and has excellent service.
Aux Petites Oignons: This recently refurbished restaurant (used to be Les Enfants Terribles) has succeeded in creating a warm friendly atmosphere with an excellent menu. Vegetarians have more choice than is usually to be found in France.
La Tsaretta: This ambient restaurant also has a lively bar downstairs which serves great bar snacks and pizzas. The restaurants food is more refined with good variety and value. Find it in the middle of Les Allues.
Le Refuge: Serves up cheap and cheerful pizzas, steaks and salads in the centre of Meribel. Popular with seasonnaires.
Pizza Express: Located above Dicks Tea bar. You may wonder why this British franchise deserves a mention. Well…the pizzas here are amazing, also available for take away. Kids love it and are well catered for but the main reason it gets a shout out is their brilliant Beatles night on Tuesdays.
La Lodge du Village: Best known for its large sunny terraces and superb hearty Italian food. Right in the centre this is also great for a bit of apres Ski and live music.
Hotel La Croix: One of the oldest buildings in Meribel, this is the place to go for the best authentic Savoyard menu. It’s well known with the locals and gets all it’s produce fresh from the market. Prices are still reasonable considering the food is virtually gourmet standard. Good wine list too.
La Fromagerie: For the best fondues in town, head for the Fromagerie in the centre.
In Meribel, what often starts as a few innocent après ski tipples can quite often develop into a wild raucous all-nighter. People are here to make the most of their days and even more of their nights. There is a fab selection of bars and clubs and here are a few of our personal favourites.
Le Rond Point: Often referred to as the ‘Ronnie’ based on the ‘Doron Piste’ this is a great place to stop for the first drink of the evening. Be warned, you may need to give in and carry your skis and get the free bus back to resort.
The Doron Pub: You’ll find it near the Tourist Office. Good for live music. Can get pretty crazy early on. Scotts downstairs is a little calmer with fabulous cocktails and comfortable sofas.
Le Rastro: Over in Mottaret, this bar has a brilliant reputation, especially on Tuesdays when the DJ spins all his best 70’s and 80’s records – guaranteed to get you dancing.
Le Poste: If you’re looking for something a bit more up market the best bet is Le Poste. Next door to the post office this is the smartest bar in town.
Barometer: Adds a little more sophistication to the proceedings.
Dicks T Bar: This crazy place surely needs no introduction, even to the non-skier. Full of chalet girls hoping to impress the cool crowd, Dicks T Bar has quite a reputation. Popular with the British and free entry before midnight.
Le Loft: For something a bit more peaceful try Le Loft. The clientele here are more cosmopolitan and the whole place feels more relaxed. Open until four playing chilled out house.
Le Privilege: If you are staying in Mottaret it makes sense to party there too. This night club is everything you’d expect from a French discothèque and more. An amusing night out.
Méribel is well known for its enormous ice rink which host concerts, ice driving and international hockey matches. There a plenty of shops, museums and galleries if the weather sets in. It’s an exceptionally pretty ski resort just to go for a stroll around and if you’re looking for something other than the stock skiing and boarding. Meribel has it all!
