Chalet Vanakam is a really lovely chalet that has been finished to a very high standard. It has 4 ensuite bedrooms and a large open plan kitchen / dining room / living room, with the most amazing view up and down the valley. The chalet is a lovely mix of old reclaimed wood and then very modern touches such as high spec bathrooms and Kitchen. 

Access to the slopes is very easy as the chalet is about 30 metres away from the free ski bus stop that takes you to nearest slopes in no time at all. The chalet also has parking for 2 cars.

Our ‘Top Tip’ is to hire ski lockers in Meribel, the lockers are right underneath one of the main gondolas in Meribel Chaudanne. This means in the morning you can go up to Meribel in your normal shoes, change into your ski equipment and off you go, all very easy. After skiing, change back into your shoes and either go home or go for a wander around Meribel, have an apres drink, maybe go swimming or ice skating. We think this is a great option if you have children. The lockers cost 50 euros for the week  and can take 3 skis and boots per locker and 70 euros for a x4 locker The room is very well heated and there are heated boot warmers for all the boots in the lockers.

Le Cruet is a truly delightful village of individual chalets, its placed just below Meribel and for most of the season its possible to ski back down a red run. Chalet Bartavelle offers a twice daily transfer directly to the slopes but it also takes no time at all to either hop on the free ski bus or take the car to the centre of town. So if you are looking for a beautiful chalet in a quiet and idylic location but still very close to all the action then this really could be the chalet for you.

Its possible to book the chalet catered or self catered, choice is yours.

The chalet is also available for rental in summer. Please contact us for a quote.
