Jerry and Bettina, the owners of this ski chalet, would like to welcome you to their charming chalet in Meribel. Our emphasis is on personal service, attention to detail and fantastic food in order to make your holiday as enjoyable as we can possibly make it.
Jerry is a chef with 20 years experience, working in Australia, France and some of the best restaurants in London. Each season he will put together a mouth-watering menu for you to enjoy.
Our chalet offers a warm, welcoming feel. Originally a barn, it was converted into a ski chalet in 1974 and was re-renovated in 2002 to a high standard and so it is a blend of old charm and modern comforts.
As part of our service, we offer a twice daily transfer to the main lifts in Meribel, so you don't have to carry your equipment around.
Our chalet offers holiday accommodation for 8 to 10 people. It has a warm, welcoming feel and is ideal for both family groups and groups of friends for week long skiing and snowboarding or summer holidays in Meribel.
The chalet occupies 3 floors. On the ground floor there is a large double bedroom ideal as a family room as it can accommodate an additional single bed and cot, a private bathroom and a living room with tv and sky freeview.
On the first floor there is a large living/dining room with a log fire and comfy chairs, in which to relax after a long day on the mountain.
On the second floor there are 3 bedrooms 2 double and 1 twin and a mezzanine twin, sharing two bathrooms.
In the main living room there is a a stereo with CD player and a jack for an MP3 player. We have a good supply of books and games for your afternoon and evening entertainment and the chalet has high speed, WIFI internet access.
The views from the living room, balcony and bedrooms are truly amazing, looking down over the valley and up the mountain to Meribel.
Outside there is a heated ski boot room with boot warmers. Ideal for drying your boots and all of your outdoor clothes and for storing skis and prams. There is also a large terrace with garden furniture and a bbq and beautiful views on one side of the house and a balcony on the other. In summer the ski boot room is ideal for storing bikes and golf bags.
Please note that we have a no smoking policy throughout the chalet.
Our chalet is located in Le Cruet, a typically rustic French hamlet. The chalets in Le Cruet all have individual character, giving the hamlet a unique feel.
Le Cruet has the advantage of being only 5 minutes drive from Meribel and we offer a twice daily transfer to the main lifts in Meribel, so you don't have to carry your own equipment about. In addition there is a blue piste running behind the chalet on which you can ski back for most of the season and a regular bus service to Meribel not far from the chalet. Should you wish, we are happy to take guests up to Meribel after dinner you will have to find your own way back but we can supply you with numbers for taxi companies or you can get the last bus.
We are only a 10 minute walk from the small village of Les Allues, with its local shops and restaurants.
Le Cruet itself is peaceful; the perfect place to relax and enjoy the amazing views.
