You will love our chalet, which we remodelled to provide ideal accommodation for families with children or groups of friends. The location is superb, just a couple of hundred yards down from the Morel chairlift, which will whisk you straight on to the pistes. At the end of the day you can ski right back to the Morel lift. In Summer you have beautiful walks from the front door, a stunning golf course nearby, and of course our wonderful sunny terrace, and balconies. You should find all you need at the chalet - free wifi, books, games, satellite tv (main channels only), a DVD player, an i-pod docking station, deckchairs, boot warmers, plentiful hot water. Next door is the famous Chez Kiki restaurant, and its welcoming bar. Just up the hill is a small supermarket and ski rental shop, together with a number of other restaurants.

About Jennifer Denning
Hello, I am Jennifer, owner with my husband of this property. We are a London family, with three children who are now in their teens and early twenties. We have been fortunate enough to be able to buy two holiday homes, and we really love sharing these homes with guests. My aim is for these houses to be a real home from home, for you as guests as much as for our family. So they are comfortable, but not grand, well equipped but not flashy. Just comfortable, relaxed, homely environments. I hope you will stay, and love them just as much! Jennifer
Jennifer Denning purchased this Chalet in 1999
Why Jennifer Denning chose Méribel
My husband and I have skied in Meribel since 1987, and we have always loved the beauty of these mountains, the pretty architecture and of course the extraordinary range of the ski area. Our children learned to ski here, and two of them went on to become keen alpine ski racers. We all love being here in our warm, comfortable home, and we hope you will enjoy it too!

A great chalet in Meribel
I’d highly recommend staying at Le Petit Bercy while skiing in the 3 valleys. The chalet is excellently located close to the Morel chairlift, meaning less time wasted on ski buses! There are also great views across the valley from the balcony adjoining the living area. However, if visiting during the winter, be mindful that there may not be parking as the area outside the chalet was under metres of snow. There are parking spaces available around 100m further uphill and a larger free car park further up.
The chalet itself has a large kitchen table which comfortably accommodated our group of 10 for evening meals. The kitchen is well stocked with all of the appliances you might need and the fireplace was a real bonus after a day on the slopes. The host, Jennifer, was also very helpful and responded quickly to any questions we had regarding the property. Overall, a great option if looking for a self-catered option with quick access to the slopes.
Thank you for such a nice, and helpful, review. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay, and hope you will return in future.
This season the quantity of snow was indeed exceptional, and that did mean the drive became inaccessible. I have changed the description of the parking arrangements to reflect this risk in the future.
Perfect Chalet close to the sloeps
Myself and 9 friends stayed in Chalet Petit Bercy for a week in March 2018.
The Chalet was very charming, with 2 decent sized double beds, and 3 rooms with single beds which was perfect for a large group.
It was easy to find, using Chez Kiki restaurant as reference on the sat nav as the actual address didn't come up in the sat nav. Parking was a little more of an issue due to the large amount of snow covering the driveway as we couldn't park up on the drive, so we had to find a parking spot nearby which wasn't too much of an issue, which would always have been the case for larger groups with more than 1 car.
The Chalet was well stocked with cutlery and crockery, as well as ample glasses and mugs. The table easily sat 10 people with room to spare, and the living area was very cosy with the wood fire and comfy sofas.
The Chalet is around 100m from the Morel lift which made getting to the slopes very easy, and is a simple green then blue run down into Meribel centre, or you can easily get to the Corchevel valley if you head the other way. In the evening, you have the option to ski back to the bottom of the Morel lift and walk back to the chalet, or there is a little off piste run that leads you back to the chalet, but this is rather narrow and can be icy. The other option is the free bus that stops at the morel lift which you can get from the town centre or from the Rond Point (if you are having a little apres ski!).
There is a little promenade of shops around 200m up the hill from the Chalet, with a small supermarket (actually fairly reasonably priced for a alpine shop to buy essentials), a bar and a ski rental shop.
Jennifer was very helpful and responsive before and during our stay when we had a few queries about the Chalet.
Overall we very much enjoyed our stay at Petit Bercy, and would certainly look to return on our next visit to Les 3 Valleys!
Thanks very much!
Thank you for your review, Sam, and I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. We hope to welcome you back to the chalet in the future!
We had a great time in Meribel staying at Chalet Petit Bercy. There was nine adults in our party and we found the chalet very spacious with a good ratio of bathrooms to bedrooms. On arrival chalet was very clean and warm and had all the amenities that we required. Great location near Morel lift and possible to ski back to chalet. Good local bar, restaurants, supermarket and only a ten minute walk to centre of town.
Would highly recommend this chalet.
Thank you for your review, Tina. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay! Jennifer
Frigidaire un peu petit pour 10 personnes
Top locatie, comfortabele bedden (behalve dat van de kleine dubbele kamer), chalet is prima, jammer van de véél te kleine frigo (we waren met 10) en de vaatwasser die bij aankomst nog vol zat van ongewassen servies...
