Ski-in and ski-out of our gorgeous family-owned, self-catering, 4th floor apartment, with lift. We are right on the piste in a unique but quiet position about 10 mins walk from the centre of Mottaret, with its ski schools, lifts, supermarket, shops, restaurants and clubs. You can ski right back to the door of the ski locker throughout the season, and there is another supermarket and bakery at Le Hameau, just above the apartment block, which you can stop off at on your ski back home. The apartment sleeps 5-7. The main mezzanine bedroom has a superking double bed (can be made up for you as 2 singles) and there are 3 more single beds in a separate bedroom. All beds have duvets with our own freshly laundered bed linen and are prepared for you prior to your arrival. Towels are also provided. The family bathroom, shower room and separate WC have been newly renovated. The well-equipped, open plan galley kitchen adjoins the dining area with views out from the balcony over the piste and the mountains beyond. The west facing balcony is perfect for lunches back at home or as a sun trap for non-skiers. The open plan living area has a very comfortable fold-down queen sized bed for 1-2 people. We have Cable TV, DVD and free WiFi. The lift takes you down to the ski locker in the basement with access directly on to the blue Furet piste. The nursery slope is just at the bottom of the Furet. There is free open air parking at the rear of property. We also let the apartment during the summer when there is masses to do for all ages. The lifts run at particular times of the day allowing you access to the mountains for hiking and mountain biking. We have stayed as a family in one of the “Refuges” - mountain log cabins which you can hike to and from. In addition there is archery, go-karting, swimming in the lake, rivers and Olympic pool, canyoning, riding, tennis, golf, paragliding, sailing, fishing, skating and ‘high ropes’ in the woods below Mottaret – a high wire assault course colour coded for difficulty! The scenery is breathtaking and the air is wonderfully pure.

Lovely convenient apartment in great ski area
Myself and 4 friends (all adults, none of us partners) stayed for a week in this lovely apartment which is right on the ski slope down to a wide choice of lifts which take you to anywhere in the 3 Valleys. Excellent help and communication from the owner and everything was ready for us when we arrived (beds made, towels put out, etc). We had a great week and if we returned to ski in the 3 Valleys and decided to stay in Mottaret, this is definitely the accommodation we would book.
Second time in this lovely appartment ... and we hope that we will be able to come back often !
Everything is great !! We found our "home sweet home"
This Ski apartment in Meribel is a suberb place to stay. The apartment is next to the slopes, so ski in ski out. The interior of the house is very cozy. We come here already for a few years and it feels a little bit as our second home.
AN excellent and homely location
The apartment was as described. Easy to locate and perfectly appointed in every detail. A real homely feel unlike some of the bland holiday apartments. Inside it is well appointed with good quality fittings and a well equipped kitchen. Bedding was as arranged and set out well. The apartment is well positioned for easy access to the slopes, ski in and out with local shops and restaurants above ad below the complex. Views were fantastic over breakfast with a good balcony. I will be returning and recommending it to friends. Thanks for a lovely stay Lucy and keep up the good work! Mike, Laura, Kerry ad Carla.
The nearest airport is Chambery - 75km (approx. 1.5 hours) from Meribel, served by FlyBE, Snowjet and Jet2. Geneva, Grenoble and Lyon airports are c.150km (2 hours). Eurostar's snow train runs from London St Pancras direct to Moutiers station 15km (20 minutes) away. It is a good idea to pre-book a taxi to meet you at Moutiers train station or take shuttle bus service to Mottaret. Self drive from UK is cheap alternative - 7 hours drive from Calais.
It is a 10 minutes walk from the apartment down to shops and restaurants in Mottaret (but 15 minutes back up!) or 15 minutes walk up to shops in Le Hameau (10 minutes down!). Ski hire is available both in Mottaret and in Le Hameau.
Shopping: There is a large supermarket on the left as you begin the drive up the mountain from Moutiers. Alternatively in Mottaret itself there are two decent sized but slightly more expensive supermarkets within walking distance from the apartment - one in Le Hameau (above) and one in the centre of Mottaret (below). Most shops open at 9am or 10am and close for lunch at midday. They reopen from 2pm and stay open until 7.30pm or 8.00pm.
On Tuesdays and Fridays in winter there is a small market on the Route de la Chaudanne in Meribel centre, offering local produce, clothing, jewellery, sweets and gadgets.
Telecabine des Chalets runs behind the chalet/apartments and runs earlier and later than normal ski lifts and can be useful if shopping without a car. Normal ski passes valid.
There is a free bus - Meribus - which runs free between Mottaret and Meribel.
In summer, there is walking, mountain biking, golf, paragliding, canyoning, high-ropes, fishing, swimming, skating.
