Chalet Cardamines - Meribel, France
Chalet Cardamines is conveniently located close to the Doron piste which runs down to La Chaudanne and is ideal for skiers wishing to get started early in the morning. The Morel chairlift is also just a short walk down hill in the opposite direction.
The chalet is finished to a high standard, with clever use of local wood and stone and is light and spacious inside. The open plan lounge and dining room has a log fireplace and a large balcony with outdoor seating.
The good size comfortable bedrooms all have en suite facilities and many also have a balcony. There is a sauna and an outdoor hot tub to help sooth those tired muscles at the end of the day.
If you wish to try out the famous night life of Méribel then it is just a 10 minutes’ walk or a short ride on the free ski bus which runs until midnight.
For the 2014/15 season, the owners are refurbishing the chalet with an extended lounge and dining area on the first floor, new boot room and an outdoor hot tub. All the bedrooms and bathrooms will be upgraded and the chalet will now sleep 14-17 with no bedrooms now on the first floor’

Meals- Chalet Cardamines, Meribel
We set very high standards for our cuisine, and train our staff extensively before the season starts, to ensure that you will thoroughly enjoy every meal on your own holiday with us. We also take our Health and Safety responsibilities extremely seriously, so all our chalet and Chalet Hotel staff during the pre-season training course are trained to the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health’s Level 2 in Food Safety*. For six days of the week our staff prepare all your meals, as described below.
A good breakfast is essential on a ski holiday, so we provide both a cooked breakfast including your choice of bacon, eggs, sausages and beans, as well as a continental selection with a choice of cereals or porridge, fruit juices, plentiful tea, coffee and bread (and croissants in France), cold meats, cheese and preserves, which is normally presented buffet-style for you to help yourself. On our staff’s one day off a week, only the continental breakfast will be provided.
The traditional ‘welcome home’ after a day on the slopes will be laid out for you in your chalet or Chalet Hotel, ready for your return, every day except on the staff’s one day off per week. A good cup of tea or coffee is the perfect accompaniment to a delicious slice of freshly home-baked cake and keeps hungry skiers happy until dinner is ready. As an added benefit for guests in our Chalet Hotels, our chefs prepare a selection of cakes for afternoon tea.
Children’s High Tea
In Chalets and Chalet Hotels with family guests, High Tea provides children under 13 years with a healthy menu, tailored more towards children’s tastes and puréed food is available for infants on request. High Tea is at 5.30pm, and children do not join the main adult-only dinner.
Dinner in Chalets
A tasty and innovative, freshly cooked dinner will be prepared for you six nights per week by your Chalet Host – or by an experienced and professional chef in our larger chalets – and served with a choice of wines. Our four-course adult-only chalet dinners start with canapés and an apéritif, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, and completed by coffee with chocolates to round off your evening. Your choice of complimentary quality wines is unlimited during the meal service, and freshly chilled water is also of course always available.
