About Mary Lowings
we have never got tired of Les Trois Vallées, summer or winter, with every year finding new places to go and things to do.We love enjoying time here with friends.I am so glad I gave up my day job to do the holiday rentals for the 2 chalet properties, it is a joy to share this stunning place with others and so rewarding to have such good reviews of happy guests who stay in the winter & summer
Mary Lowings purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Mary Lowings chose Les Allues
We love the picturesque and traditional village of Les Allues. It is the best of all worlds: a traditional French village right in the heart of the Méribel Valley, beautiful any season of the year. The chalet and village have a very warm feeling. The Chalet was totally renovated 9 years ago and continues to be maintained to a very high standard with all modern facilities, but with a cosy Alpine ambiance. Just perfect to feel at home in the mountains. I am proud to have been awarded 4 stars by the Méribel tourist board and their coveted LaBelMeribel certificate.
What makes this Apartment unique
The chalet is very spacious with fantastic views. Plus the delight of being in a traditional French village , as opposed to a purpose built seasonal resort. You get more space & luxury for your money by not being in the centre, but still easy to access the whole area. The village is quieter than the centre of Meribel,especially at night!

A beautiful apartment with amazing views
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this cosy spacious garden apartment which was a joy to return to after a day skiing! The property was clean, comfortable and very well equipped with stunning views. Mary was very helpful both before & during our stay giving us a lot of information which made our week so enjoyable.
A very peaceful location & we did like Les Allues and the restaurants we visited there. Transport to the slopes was good & we personally enjoyed the gondola each day but buses were very efficient too.
Thank you again Mary, for a lovely week. We shall certainly recommend it to our friends and would love to return.
I am so happy you enjoyed your stay and felt at home in the apartment. Great you liked the village of Les Allues, we love it as it's a traditional tranquil French village, easy to access the whole of Les Trois Vallées.
You will be most welcome if you decide to return
Picturesque, quite location, stunning views
It had the wow factor on first seeing the property. It also felt very much home from home. We loved the log fire. Property was very clean and tidy with all the little extras. Mary (owner) was very helpful and could be reached at any time, if needed. Yes I would recommend this chalet to a friend or relative. The local restaurants were friendly with very good food. The local bus service, which was free, was very good and always on time to and from the three valleys. We had a wonderful stay and will come back.
I'm so glad you had the 'wow' factor and felt at home in the Garden Apartment Chalet Champetre. When we stay, we always feel the view 'fills your soul' and is great de-stress calming.... the beauty and wonder of the mountains at their best.
I look forward to welcoming you again, in the winter and maybe think about coming in the glorious and tranquil summer months
Very cozy, Mary has furnished perfectly, lots of special touches. Candles, beautiful fire. Kitchen area perfect with lots of utensils, we didn’t want for anything as it catered for every need possible on cooking and home comforts. Thank you Mary.
I am so glad you found the Garden Apartment of chalet Champetre had all you needed to make you feel at home,comfortable and you enjoyed your stay.
I do hope to be able to welcome you for another stay,winter or in the glorious summer.
A lovely,well-equipped apartment for 4 people.
Chalet Champetre’s Garden Apartment was the perfect base for our skiing holiday in the 3 Valleys: warm, cosy and comfortable with amazing views across the valley every morning as we drew the curtains. The apartment was very well-equipped so catering for ourselves was easy. The beds were large and comfortable. There was a log fire to add to the cosy atmosphere.
It was a bit of a trek to the Olympe bubble so we used the car to transport skis and boots, but the quiet, peaceful location of the property more than made up for that. Transport to Méribel from Les Allues is simple, either using the bubble lift or the regular free bus service. There is a ski hire shop and supermarket a short walking distance from the apartment.
This was one of the nicest places we have stayed in - we wanted to come back for next Christmas but it was already booked! Understandably so!
Thank you for your super and detailed review.That is so help full for others trying to chose the perfect place to stay.
I am delighted you enjoyed your stay and found The Garden Apartment comfortable, well equipped and cosy.
I do hope to be able to welcome you again and a shame I cannot accommodate you next Christmas
A beautiful Chalet you will return to.
The Garden apartment was a total oasis, the attention to detail was amazing the views down the valley were awesome, it was an absolute pleasure to sit on the Balcony and watch the weather over the mountains change while enjoying a breakfast or dinner. We enjoyed staying so much we only ate out one evening.
on a more official basis:
the listing is acurate
facilities and equipment were beyond expectations
property was clean and crisp
we were well looked after by the owner and we would recommend to anyone.
Our break was a summer walking water-sport week
we ate at a local Pizza restaurant which was good in Les allures
for water-sports we used France-raft and their instructors were excellent, though there is a rafting company closer in Moutiers you pass them as you ascend to the Chalet.
We took a trip to Lake Annecy which was excellent for a summer swim paddle board or waterski.
the area of Méribel and the surrounding three valleys are all set up for mountain bike enthusiasts and I can recommend you try this, they even have electric mountain bikes for people like me.
For good value I would recommend doing the weekly lift pass currently at 55 euros which is cheaper that two separate day accesses to the lifts for hiking.
for skiing the village has a system stopping at Les Allures which is the second point on the lift from Brides de le Bain. There is upgrades going on in 2018 to improve this lift system and add to its stops.
there is a free bus service running all over the mountain and I would recommend a trip to the thermal spa in Brides de le Bain to relax after a hard days walking/skiing/swimming.
If you are going to ski from the Chalet I would recommend you get lockers at the lift or up in Méribel to avoid lengthy walks in boots or just drive to the lift or bus and park, the parking seems adequate but this is in summer when its less crowded.
Overall fantastic if the chalet gets a hot tub we won't leave
Thank you Clive & Claire for your superb and very informative review: so interesting for me to read, as I have never, in 20 years I have been there, been to the thermal spas in Brides Les Bains, but will try them now from your recommendation.
I hope to be able to welcome you again, summer or winter.
The apartment was very comfortable. A pleasure to stay in with all that we needed. Great views .
The property was very comfortable, warm and welcoming. Just what was needed and great to come back to after a busy day. Les Allues is a lovely village and very cibvenient for Meribel
I am very glad you enjoyed your stay, were comfortable in the Garden Apartment, and had all you needed .
I agree ,Les Allues is lovely and a haven from the bustle of the centre of Meribel.
I am delighted you have chosen to come back next February.2019
