Property Description

One of the few recipients of the Méribel Tourist Office’s ‘5* Label Meribel’ award, Chalet Infusion is one of the most luxurious chalets in Meribel's exclusive village.

Split over three floors, Chalet Infusion enjoys a typical Savoyard feel & features five en suite bedrooms. Each bedroom has been individually styled & decorated in it's own fabrics, textures and antique furniture to give everyone their own unique experience. Four of the bedrooms also enjoy stunning views overlooking the mountains from their own private balconies. All of the rooms can be made up as doubles or twins and four have the option of a cot for those bringing young children.

A roaring fire, large squashy sofas, HD satellite & terrestrial television, Ipod systems and southern facing floor-to-ceiling windows with views stretching across to the Olympe chairlift and the 1992 Olympics women’s downhill run; creating the perfect environment to relax and snuggle up in after a days adventure. This truely is the heart of the chalet with the adjacent dining room featuring a beautiful oak Tuscany table and French windows which open on to a very private sun deck.

An almost panaoramic terrace around the chalet features a jacuzzi, sauna, outdoor eating area, sun-loungers, outdoor heaters, table tennis, pool table, darts board, music system and a fully stocked bar. For those who require it, a fully equiped study area provides a telephone, fax, computer, broadband and wireless Internet access. On the ground floor a laundry room, heated ski & boot room, private parking and an en suite massage room which can also be converted to an extra en suite bedroom upon request for a supplementary fee.

Food:

The day starts at our chalets with a hearty breakfast of porridge, cereals, yoghurts, fresh fruit salad and fruit juices, freshly-baked bread, croissants, pain au chocolat and an a la carte cooked breakfast.

On return from the slopes homemade cakes, bread and jam, tea, coffee and vin chaud will have been laid out for you to enjoy in front of a roaring log fire. Evening Champagne and canapés are served followed by a four course dinner which includes a selection of local cheeses and specially-selected wines.

On your chalet’s day off our Managers will book one of Meribel or Courchevel’s many excellent restaurants. Our chefs are also happy to prepare Champagne picnic lunches (at a supplementary charge) which our drivers will then deliver to you at lunchtime at your choice of location.

We will contact you prior to your arrival to ascertain any dietary or children’s requirements and to confirm that you are happy with your chalet chef’s menu.

Service:

We benefit from a highly professional in-resort team with many returning for their second, third or fourth season. Everyone we employ is carefully selected for their abilities in accordance with Alpine Infusion’s high standards. Our staff’s personal and dedicated service reflects the fact that Alpine Infusion is a small, independent, family-run company.

Our managers play a vital role in ensuring that your holiday lives up to the highest standards. They will deliver your lift passes, visit you at your chalet every evening as well as make restaurant, massage and apres-ski bookings.

Our chefs are all professionally-trained and able to adapt to any special dietary requirements including that of children.

Our hostesses are there to make your stay as comfortable as possible while your dedicated driver is on hand throughout the morning and then again from 4pm until early evening with our pool drivers providing driving support and cover during the middle of the day.

We offer a complimentary in-resort transportation service in the Méribel and Courchevel valleys, particularly important for families with children in ski school or being looked after by one of our nannies. In addition, our team have over 20 seasons of experience under their belts and are your gateway to the finest skiing and dining in the Three Valleys. It’s these little touches that make all the difference.

Alpine Infusion has its own portfolio of private ski instructors who are bookable in advance and Meribel and Courchevel have a wide selection of ski schools for skiers and snowboarders of every level and all age groups.

- Private ski lessons with David Lindsey:
David is a certified French, English and New Zealand instructor who has taught skiing all over the world. He is the son of Peter Lindsay, considered to be the “founder” of Méribel, who started the resort in 1936.

- Beauty & Massages
As there are few things to rival an expert massage after a long day in the mountains, we are happy to organise all types of massages including physiotherapy massages as well as beauty treatments such as facials, manicures, pedicures and St. Tropez treatments. The treatments take place in the privacy of your own chalet at a cost of approximately €50 per person per half-hour and €80 per person per hour.

If Chalet Infusion is not available for your required dates it is possible to enquire about Chalet Iamoto and Rachelle as these chalets are identical. It is also possible to link the chalets for larger or corporate groups to a maximum of 36 people.

Location

Located in Méribel’s exclusive village, Chalet Infusion is one of the most luxurious chalets in the area.

Infusion is just 200m from the village bars and restaurants as well as the Telesiege du Golf chairlift; your gateway to the entire Three Valleys network via the Altiport. The piste that returns skiers to the village is replete with snow canons ensuring season-round access and should you want to ski directly back to the chalet a short detour through the trees from the piste brings you out to the terrace or front door.

Local Area

Meribel in Winter

Meribel is arguably the prettiest resort in the famed Three Valleys of France with its traditional Savoyarde wooden buildings, including the giant chalet-like Parc Olympique sports centre built for the 1992 Albertville Olympics. Founded in 1939 by British Colonel Peter Lindsay who stipulated that all buildings had to be constructed in traditional Savoyarde style using only wood, stone and slate, the town offers a wide variety of shops, bars and restaurants from the bustling après-ski bar Le Rond-Point to the cosmopolitan cocktail bar La Poste.

The Meribel valley, including the purpose-built Mottaret area, suits skiers of all levels. Beginners can cruise down the wide gentle slopes of the Altiport, a tree-lined area ideal for those experiencing snow for the first time. For Intermediates, the range of runs is almost limitless with 89 blue and 116 red runs. For the truly Advanced skier every day here is filled with challenges and adventures, be it acres of off-piste, endless mogul runs or simply kilometres of groomed perfection.

Meribel has two areas dedicated to free-style riders. In Meribel-Mottaret there is the Plattieres snowpark with its 17 acres - over a length of 1,300 yards - of jumps, whoops, banks and two half-pipes. The Meribel Moonpark offers one competition-standard half pipe, one half-pipe for learners and a boarder cross with whoops, tables and other obstacles.

Heli-Ski
A short flight from the resort takes you to the helicopter pad in the Italian mountains from where you embark on the ultimate heli-skiing experience. Upto four descents are possible in a single day with each taking between one to two and a half hours and upto 3,500 metre's of vertical descent per run.
Meribel in Summer

Many of Alpine Infusion’s guests return to our chalets during the summer months of July and August to be greeted by a totally different kind of playground.

Laden with flowers, trees and dramatic landscapes the valley provides the perfect environment for hiking, mountain-biking, golf, climbing, parapenting, whitewater rafting, canyoning, horseriding, tennis and much more.

The Vanoise National Park, France’s first National Park, is a boundary-less paradise of 140,000 acres, founded in 1963 to protect animal life and wild flora. Hiking levels reach to 3,855m and include 500km of maintained and marked trails which are not difficult and are accessible to any good hiker with suitable mountain gear. They lead through an extraordinary, natural protected open space for day walks or several day treks (lodging at one of the 50 Park refuges) and some, especially the forest trails, are very easily reached, even by young children. The ridges of Tougnete, Saulire and Mont-Vallon offer fantastic views over the Alps, from Mont-Blanc to the Les Ecrins mountain ranges. To reach the mountain summits, visitors can also use the gondola lifts which are open several days a week throughout July and August.

In addition to the outdoor activities, Méribel plays host to concerts, recitals, street performances and jam sessions as well as various internationally renowned events in mountain biking, golf and more.
