Catered Chalet Etoile, Meribel 6
Chalet Etoile is a charming and cosy ski chalet. This delightful chalet sleeps 6 and is situated in the heart of Meribel Village, at the centre of The Three Valleys. Etoile is located in a quiet street behind Meribel Village bakery and in close proximity to the Golf chairlift, making it the perfect Meribel accommodation for both budget and location.
Meribel Village is a brilliant location for independent travellers. The excellent Lodge du Village offers pizzas and live music, the bakery is perfect for snacks and takeaways and the Golf run will bring you all the way home after a long day on the slopes. The high-speed Golf chairlift will take you straight to the Altiport; an absolute mecca for beginners, and also connects you to the outstanding Three Valleys lift network for those wishing to head further afield. The free navette will whisk you into town for those who fancy a spot of shopping, and the supermarket will ensure that your pockets remain stuffed with chocolate at all times.
How many hosts will we have in Chalet Etoile? Chalet Etoile is hosted by one member of staff. You will also have access to a Ski Basics driver to take you to and from the slopes in the morning and afternoon.
How close is Chalet Etoile to the nearest ski lift? It’s approximately a 250 metre walk to the high-speed Golf chairlift.
We have a larger group, is there another Ski Basics chalet nearby? Chalet Etoile is located next door to one of our most popular 8 bed chalets, Chalet Victoire. It’s also just a stone’s throw from another firm favourite, Chalet Boulangerie which also sleeps 8. Splitting a larger party across a group of nearby chalets is a great way to remain in close proximity whilst not comprising on the standard or location of your chalet. We understand you may still want to spend evening meals together, so please don’t hesitate to get in contact for more details on how we can arrange this to best suit you and your group.
Will we be disturbed by the nearby pub? Chalet Etoile is nestled on a quiet street just set back from all the action of the nearby shops and restaurants, meaning you’re able to shut the chalet door and relax in total serenity.
How long will it take to get to Meribel Centre? Via the road, it’s a short 5-minute drive to Meribel Centre, over a distance of just under 3km. Meribel Centre can also be easily accessed on skis via the Golf chairlift which will take you to straight up to the Altiport Area, perfect for beginners and from here you can access the rest of the vast Meribel ski area.
How often will the chalet be cleaned during our stay? If you’re staying in Chalet Etoile with our Classic Service, the chalet will be cleaned 5 times during your stay. If you opt for our pure Service, there will be a mid-week clean of the communal areas.

Feedback from guests who have stayed at this chalet
The chalet is superbly located in the centre of Meribel Village, with easy ski-in and out option as well as super helpful Ski basics drivers at peak times. The free bus is also a tiny walk away. Our hostess Jenny was super-efficient and friendly, great with kids and adults alike, and cooked us amazing cakes that awaited us every day after skiing. They were so yummy that I copied the recipes as my daughters will no doubt ask for them again. Dinners were excellent and varied, and very well presented, although I must say we were not always very hungry for pudding. Jenny was helpful with skiing tips too and Kate was always at the other end of a call to assist. Thanks all for a wonderful week.Perrine Faye – February, 2020
Shannon and Alex looked after us well. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Meribel Village.Leuan Jenkins – February, 2019

Wonderful chalet. Nothing was too much trouble.Simon Murray – March 18, 2017
Perfect chalet for our family – being able to walk to the lift is ideal.Bev Sandwich – April 14, 2017
Super comfortable, perfect size for family, quiet location and very clean comfortable bedrooms, good supply of extra bed linen if needed.Victoria Orford - March 28, 2015
For a company called Ski Basics, the service, accommodation and food was nothing like basic and the value for money was amazing. Without doubt we would use Ski Basics again for our next trip to Meribel and would certainly recommend to friends. Many thanks.Craig Hookham - February 23, 2013
Awesome as always. Faultless staff and service.Dale Cheasley – January, 2019
Comfortable chalet in an ideal location, excellent cuisine, outstanding staff. A fabulous week all round and I would definitely look to return to Meribel Village next year.Neil Hatton – January, 2019
We have had a wonderful holiday, thank you. Shannon has been an excellent host and cook and has gone the extra mile to help us get the kids ready to leave in the morning and adapting the food choices to suit our son’s food preferences. The chalet has always been clean and beautifully presented and we loved the Christmas tree.Muriel Hoffner – December, 2018
Our 5th consecutive year in Chalet Etoile, it feels like our home from home. So convenient and perfect for our family.Jane Peterson – January 14, 2018
We were returning for the forth time and it is still lovely.Clifford Aitken – February 16, 2016
Beautiful location and chalet. Nice and cosy with friendly staff.Laura Plant – December 25, 2015
Lucy was excellent and tried her best to cater for our children who can be very fussy eaters. Chalet was always clean. She was very organised. She was knowledgeable about the resort. Driver service was absolutely top notch. Couldn't have been better!David Morrison - March 1, 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!Andre Riberio - February 9, 2013
