Chalet la Vieille Scierie

Meribel - Les Allues, Three Valleys, France: catered, sleeps up to 15 La Vieille Scierie offers the perfect combination of easy access to the 3 Valleys with excellent service and catering.

Chalet la Vieille Scierie

La Vieille Scierie is situated right in the heart of Meribel les Allues, a charming alpine village setting.  It's just 5 minutes to the ski lift, giving easy access to the slopes of Meribel, and the extensive 3 Valleys Ski Area.  La Vieille Scierie is built in traditional mountain style and has eight spacious bedrooms, all en-suite.

The size and location of this residence make it a rare find, and very popular with large groups of friends, couples or several families travelling together.

A village location gives access to local amenities: ski hire, shop & boulangerie, ski school office, restaurants & bars are all right on your doorstep, making it a very practical choice for those looking to make the most of their stay.

The lounge areas and dining room have plenty of comfy sofas, an open log fire and doors out to the balconies giving pretty village views.  Depending on the aspect, you can enjoy scenic views right down over the valley, or up towards the ski area.

The eight, spacious bedrooms have a nice, alpine feel, full en-suite bathrooms and balcony.  The jacuzzi room provides a place for you to recuperate after a day on the slopes, before relaxing in front of the fire.

The dining room has a second sitting area to curl up and relax in, with TV and DVD player.  This also works very well to provide extra space as a children's play area for families.  

La Vieille Scierie is the perfect fit for large groups to enjoy a fantastic holiday in the 'hustle & bustle' of one of the world’s largest ski resorts.

"Just a quick email to thank you and your team and singling Gareth out for an extra special thank you.
La Vieille Scierie was lovely and it was such a treat to be looked after by Gareth and Noemie, the meals where amazing and his relaxed attitude and his obvious passion for what he does came through.

Many Thanks and hope to see you again"

"We wanted to say a huge thank you for a fabulous week. The whole process was first class. I cannot recommend you highly enough.
The food was delicious. The provision of the minibus facility is genius! We didn’t think we would have a need for such a service, but my goodness we did! Such tremendous value for money. Thanks to you all for your patience.

One of our best ski holidays ever!

"A big thank you to your and your team for another great holiday. Your choice of "fellow revellers" in the chalet was perfect, we all got on so well and had a wonderful time.

Please thank our hosts for their wonderful hospitality and especially Sammy's creations in the kitchen - delicious.
Hope you have a good rest of the season.
Best wishes

"On behalf of everyone I would like thank all of you at Ski Blanc for a truly magnificent week in La Vielle Scierie - but in particular we would like to thank Mark and Sarah for a really exceptional week of fine dining - they made us all so welcome and could not have gone further in making our holiday such a roaring success with their friendly, accommodating attitude and exceptional food. Thank you so much - we have been spoilt out of all recognition!

I hope you have a wonderful remainder of the season.

Best wishes

"I would like to thank you and your team, especially Mark and Sarah, for a great week in your Chalet, great food it was well organized and very enjoyable. Thanks also for organising such great weather!

Please could you give me a price for next February (2014), again hiring the whole Chalet, slightly different people and for us catching the snow train.

Thanks again
