Catered Chalet Epena, Meribel 8

Chalet Epena is currently undergoing a full refurbishment for the 19/20 winter season. From new bathrooms, kitchen, boot room, flooring and sofas, no stone will be left unturned during this renovation. Excellent for groups, this is a very sociable chalet, with dinners around central dining table, after dinner drinks on the enormous terrace, then heading out to see what Meribel has to offer.

Ideal for guests who love to get the most out of their time, Chalet Epena's brilliant location means you don't have to miss out on a single moment. Head into town to check out the latest kit from North Face, have a quick hot chocolate at Barometer and stock up on sweets and saucisson at the weekly market, all in time for dinner. Modern and comfortable, Chalet Epena is a great base to come back to refuel, before you're off and out again to see where the day or night takes you.

Therefore, the furnishings shown in these images may not accurately represent the furniture that will be in the chalet once the renovation is complete and during your stay.

Feedback from guests who have stayed at this chalet

Both Andy and James were fantastic hosts. Both were very friendly and while remaining professional at all times were also very personable which, given we were a group of late 20 year olds to mid 30 year olds, went down very well. They knew when to have a laugh and when to leave us to it. Their advice about the resort was always on point. Andy's cooking in particular went down very well with all of us. The food was to a very high standard - probably higher than we were expecting - and he produced some excellent dishes that we all won't forget. He clearly has a passion for cooking and making his guests feel at home, which added a lot to our trip. Thanks both of you!

It was SO great, all the ski basics staff were really helpful and friendly and made our trip run some much more smoothly. I would definitely recommend to others in the future and will hopefully get to visit again myself! Thank you so much for a lovely holiday!

Stephanie Cheung - January 7, 2018

If you have a rating higher than "Excellent", our hosts deserve it. They surpassed all expectations. They were lovely - friendly, polite, interested in our well-being and happiness, flexible and very accommodating to our needs. Fantastic pair!

John Parker - January 14, 2017

The chalet was lovely and well located.

Amanda Faucherand - January, 2016

Chalet was perfect, super clean and despite us leaving the chalet quite un-orderly each evening it was spotless by the time we woke up in the morning. A major reason why I would consider rebooking this chalet is due to how good the hosts made the holiday.

Eoin McCabe - March 7, 2015

Chalet was excellent, location was good. The pick- up and return service worked very well.

Graham Cooper - February 1, 2014

The Chalet was exactly what we expected, very comfortable, great location. As the main organiser for our party of 8, I was more than impressed with your service. We totally enjoyed the experience and for some who had never been to a chalet before whilst skiing will never go back to a hotel. Thank you for a great time, will highly recommend you to other potential customers! Hopefully see you next year!

Amanda Swift - January 4, 2014

All round great experience. Thoroughly impressed, and particularly the online platform which made managing our booking very easy. Andy and James were fantastic and made sure we had everything we needed all week.

Tom Foster - January, 2019

Had a fantastic time with Ski Basics in Meribel. Chalet Epena was a perfect base for a cracking week's skiing. In particular our chalet hosts/chef James and Andy were brilliant. Very welcoming and engaging, delicious food and the wine kept flowing, ideal. Easily arranged our logistics and gave great advice on where to eat and drink in the mountains and around town.

Will Pullen - March, 2019

Andy and Gemma were great hosts, made us feel comfortable and welcome straight away. The food was delicious and the cakes were scrumptious!

Frankie Noades - January 27, 2018

Fantastic location and great value – our group love this chalet.

Mary Simms - April 14, 2017

Great location and very comfortable chalet.

Katie Munnoch - January 30, 2016

It was the best holiday ever and I would love to go again. If we ever go back to Meribel, we will use you again.

Dennis Venter - March 15, 2014

Everything went very smoothly with the whole trip. Sarah and Jason were both excellent hosts. Great fun and very good at what they do, drivers were always friendly and helped with loading and unloading skis etc. Great time had by all. Thank you!

Lesley Cringle - January 25, 2014

As in the 2 previous years, I loved everything about the holidays. The transfers from and to the airport went smoothly, the chalet was great and our host Sophie was excellent. I've been going on ski trips for over 10 years and Ski Basics is by far the best service I've used. Keep up the good work!
