What Transfer Services Do We Offer?

Return prices for private transfers are based on the cost of all 8 seats.

Shared Transfers

For smaller groups, or for those who don't require exclusivity, our shared transfers may be a more economical option. In our shared transfers, your party will be combined with another group where possible to help you keep the costs to a minimum.

Please note - if you are the first group to book a minibus, you will be charged for the minimum occupancy of 6 people. If we find another group to share with you, you will receive a refund for any additional places that you had initially paid for.


Chalet Merlo is situated in Le Miroir, a village that offers an authentic Alpine experience that the neighbouring resorts do not. Keen off-piste and heli-ski enthusiasts note it as a 'must do' destination, as well as those who appreciate local architecture and ambiance.

At the same time, this unassuming hamlet is home to Chez Merie, a prized restaurant destination, both summer and winter. A little further down the valley is Monal, a favourite amongst locals for its wine bar and restaurant. Meanwhile, going up the valley takes you to the nightlife of the big resort and the plethora of restaurants and bars.

If you would like a nights out whether locally or further afield, your chauffeur will be on hand to take you there and back. With so many choices available, you'll want to extend your stay just to fit it all in!

The winter months in the Tarentaise area offer a choice of resorts at snow sure heights, so powder and snow depth are a certainty. The clarity of the air is unmatched, revealing abundant views of breathtaking glaciers and peaks.

Chalet Merlo is nestled between five world class resorts: Val d'Isere, Tignes, Sainte Foy, Les Arcs and La Rosiere. All under 20 mins away, each offering a variety of unique star qualities they provide an abundance of choice for all tastes and abilities.

For those that like an excursion away from the main stream, or simple want to have some fun with other winter activities, the list of possibilities is impressive. There is so much on offer that although boredom is not a probability, not having enough time to enjoy everything is a possibility. Ice skating in Val d'Isere, snowshoeing in Sainte Foy or paragliding in Tignes only just scratch the surface of activities available.
