Booking a chalet in Meribel is really easy. Go to our Chalets page, where you can book directly with some of the best Three Valleys' summer and ski chalet companies, handpicked by us. Select your requirements at the top of the page – at least your arrival date and number of people – and we’ll show you which properties are available for you. We recommend you book your accommodation before buying your flights or train tickets as availability may be limited.
To find the perfect chalet for you, there are a few things you may want to consider beforehand.
1. Dates – When to book a chalet in Meribel
Chalets in Meribel are usually open for bookings during the winter and summer high seasons – from December to April and from June to September. Some chalet companies may offer their chalets up for interseason rentals, especially for large parties such as company retreats or events.
2. Duration – How long to book a chalet in Meribel for
Most ski chalets in Meribel are rented on a weekly basis only. You’ll find that Saturday to Saturday rentals are most common, especially with independent chalet companies, while big tour operators who sell packages including flights and transfers sometimes have Sunday to Sunday rentals. However, these dates can occasionally be flexible and some chalet companies may provide a mix of Saturday and Sunday changeovers.
Lately, thanks to the increased offer in flights, especially cheap ones, shorter and longer ski breaks are becoming more and more popular so some chalet companies may be flexible on their rental dates on request. Therefore, even if you can only find seven-day offers on our Chalets page, we may be able to accommodate shorter and longer bookings – state your desired dates in the Special Requirements box and we’ll get back to you with alternative options.
On the other hand, summer chalet bookings in Meribel are generally more flexible on dates and length of stay, especially outside the peak months of July and August. This means that you can come for a long weekend, for ten days or for a few days mid-week more easily. Again, state your requirements in the Special Requirements box while booking.
3. Number of people – How big is your group?
Meribel offers a wide range of chalets, spanning from cosy two-bedroom mazots to huge renovated farmhouses with nine bedrooms and more. Hence, a chalet holiday is suitable for all sorts of parties, from couples looking for a romantic escapade to families, groups of friends and even for large corporate retreats. You’ll need to know the exact number of people and the ages of the children coming with you on your holiday before booking – you can filter our chalets by capacity at the top of the page.
4. Whole property or shared chalet?
Chalets in Meribel can either be booked by the room or as a whole property. Catered chalets are more often than not rented by the room, meaning that you share the chalet and facilities with other guests, while self-catered chalets are rented out as a whole property, exclusively for your party. Booking rooms in a shared catered chalet is a great option for small families and groups of friends or for couples, however, some catered chalets can be rented out on a whole-property basis for large parties. To learn more about whether to choose a catered or a self-catered chalet, read below.
5. Amenities & services – What to look out for when booking a chalet in Meribel
There are hundreds of chalets on offer in Meribel, some providing simple accommodation at the foot of the slopes and others boasting five-star luxury commodities. Whether you just want a comfy sofa to rest on after a long day on the slopes or you prefer to soak your aching muscles in a hot tub with a glass of bubbly, Meribel has got a chalet for you. Many high-end properties also offer concierge services, who’ll take care of everything from your ski passes to your lessons and equipment hire, and even a chauffeur service to take you to and from the slopes and drive you around resort, a private chef or a spa with massages on demand.
