Stay at Chalet Vache Bleue in the French Alps at Meribel

Chalet Vache Bleue is situated in the village centre of Les Allues Meribel; the heart of the Three Valleys (Les Trois Vallees) Ski area. Your stay at Chalet Vache Bleue puts everything this magnificent area offers at your fingertips whilst spoiling you with home comforts in a contemporary setting. Chalet Vache Bleue is a self catered chalet within a 16th Century stone barn, which has been renovated to a high standard, giving you a luxurious, welcoming base for your holiday in the French Alps.

The Three Valleys area is the largest high altitude ski domain in the world, offering you more than 600 km of groomed runs plus extensive off-piste terrain all accessible via 200 lifts. Meribel occupies the centre valley within the Three Valleys giving you easy access to the entire area. A true Ski Mecca, there are runs to suit every level of skier/boarder and lots of activities for non-skiers. The Ski area is snow sure thanks to the Northerly aspect, more than 70% of skiable terrain above 2000m and an extensive network of snow cannons servicing the area.

Les Allues is the original village of the Meribel area and makes an ideal base for you to enjoy the very best of everything the Three Valleys area offers.  Les Allues offers a peaceful and traditional environment, having several excellent restaurants, two bars, ski shop and a small supermarket. The village is more than a great base for your holiday, it is a living village with year round inhabitants and even has a school and a Museum. Unlike staying in a purpose built ski resort you will get a tase of real French life in the Alps.

The Gondola lift at Les Allues takes you to the central lift network at Meribel giving you direct access to the whole area. There is also a free regular bus service to Meribel centre. Both the bus stop and Gondola are within easy walking distance of Chalet Vache Bleue. After a day in the mountains you can return by the free bus, the Gondola or when the snow conditions are good via the Village run which ends in Les Allues. If you would like to go to Meribel for a taste of the more vibrant nightlife there, the free bus runs until after midnight through the season giving you easy access without actually having to stay in Meribel centre.
