Apartment 5 Chalet Piton is situated in the peaceful village of Chandon. It is just 20 metres from the free bus stop and just minutes from Méribel centre, ideally positioned to be fully immersed within local tradition, whilst still holding a connection to the rest of the Three Valleys.
Getting to and from the ski slopes is easy by taking Meribel’s free bus, the bus stop being only 20 meters from the Apartment 5 Chalet Piton. The free bus journey passes through Meribel Le Raffort, where you can pick up the “Olympic gondola”, Meribel Village, where you can take the “Golf” high speed chairlift directly to the nursery slopes or after just a 12 minute ride the free bus arrives at Meribel Chaudanne where there are five different lifts to start from.
Recent renovation has allowed this former farmhouse to become more comfortable, without losing any of its previous charm or character. The apartment is directly under the roof and partly in the eaves so sometimes the ceiling is low and sometimes very high. Throughout there are exposed 200 year old beams from the original farmhouse. It has a large living room with dining table for 6 and open kitchen area.
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 you 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 around 45 euros for the week and can take 3 skis and boots per locker. The room is very well heated.
Chalet Apartment Piton can accommodate up to six persons. Please note that the mezzanine twin room is accessed by a ladder stair and has restricted headroom.
We operate a no smoking policy within the chalet.
Chandon Village: Chandon is a delightfully unspoilt village just below Meribel, It is just 4/5 minutes drive from Méribel town centre and a little longer on the free ski bus that runs till late in the night. Yet could be worlds away, with listed barns, traditional bread oven and village chapel. A genuinely attractive, and more relaxing alternative to the centre of Méribel. Oh and don't forget the red run that runs behind the village, so for most of the season its possible to ski back almost to the door. Most of Chandon's fifty permanent residents are locals, families who have been here forever; in fact, in the summer some of the ladies still wash their vegetables in the village water trough. You don't get much more authentic.
