Chalet Snowbel probably has the best location in Méribel of any individual chalet. It is two doors down from La Refuge restaurant, right in the centre of town. It is less than a minute to walk to the escalator that takes you onto the ski slope by the Tourist Office. From here, it is a very short ski to La Chaudanne, the main lift area of Méribel, with access to all three valleys. In the evenings, entertainment is virtually on your doorstep, with all of Méribel’s shops, restaurants and bars within a short stroll.
Chalet Snowbel was built in 2005. It has three bedrooms, all twins or doubles, with one of the rooms also having space for extra beds, for use as a family room.
As you come in off the street, you come to the garage area which is used as our ski locker and boot warmer. The boot warmer turns on a couple of hours before you head out skiing, so your boots are perfectly warmed for you, and slide on as easily as a pair of comfy old slippers (well almost!) You then head up the stairs to the front door of the chalet itself.
Also off the entrance hall, you'll find the main living and dining area. This is an open plan room with kitchen, dining area and living area. The living area seats 5 on the corner sofa. There’s a large flat-screen TV, with satellite Freeview channels, DVD player, and choice of DVDs. There’s also an iPod docking station. Off the living room is a balcony with views of Meribel and the mountains. There’s also a downstairs loo.
Stairs from the living area lead up to the second floor. Here there is access onto a large outdoor terrace with fine views of Meribel valley.

Chalet Snowbel has a fantastic location for a ski chalet in the Three Valleys, as it is right in the centre of Meribel. It’s less than a minute’s walk from the chalet to the escalator by the tourist office that takes you up onto the slopes. Then it’s an easy ski along to La Chaudanne, the main lift area. From here you can access the huge ski area of the 3 Valleys. La Chaudanne is also the meeting point for the various ski schools.
