The chalet is in the small hamlet of Raffort, 2.5km from the Meribel ski resort - you can finish on the pistes and ski back into the chalet via a lovely small wooden bridge over the eponymous stream.
Inside, a haven of charm and wellbeing awaits in a refined, mountainous warm atmosphere. The communal spaces are friendly and welcoming, while the six suites are comfortable and intimate. The 320m2 chalet has a huge south-facing terrace with the most amazing views of Meribel Valley, the peak of the Saulire, and Mount Vallon.
It is organised over four levels, linked by a lift:
• Entrance hall
• Ski room with facilities to dry shoes, gloves, and clothes
• Wellbeing space with swim spa, sauna, and massage room
• Four ensuite bedrooms, with either king size beds or twin beds, and shower rooms with Italian showers or bathrooms. Flat screen TV in each room
• Huge 110m2 open space with reception room, living room, dining room area, Italian kitchen, utility room, and home cinema with sofa beds (sleeps 4)

There is a covered parking space with indoor access to the chalet.

There will be a delivery service of bread every morning. You will find toiletries in the bathrooms and a gourmet food basket in the kitchen. Many additional services are available upon request at reservation.
The peaceful hamlet of Raffort is located just below Meribel ski resort, which is 2.5km away. The Raffort stream, at the edge of the forest, runs at the bottom of the off-piste area from La Croix Jean-Claude and the route through Raffort.
Raffort les Allues, Cruet, Vanthier, Chandon, Nantgerel, Gittaz and Plantin are the original small skiing villages. In fact, it was these villages that inspired the Scot Peter Lindsay in 1936, who was looking for a new site for winter sports.
Today these charming villages are traditional architectural jewels in the mountains that you cross before arriving in the more recent neighbourhoods in Meribel Valley.
They are also precious basecamps for those who love authenticity, calm, culture, gentle strolls, and a lot of skiing… The Olympe cable car means you can reach La Chaudanne in a few minutes, and the largest ski area in the world. When evening falls, take the same cable car or ski down the mountain to rediscover the soothing atmosphere of your chalet and the peacefulness of the village.
