Chalet L'Ancolie - Meribel, France
The superb Chalet L’Ancolie was built in traditional Savoyard style, in a quiet location, set back and slightly above the main road.
The owner, an expert carpenter, has lovingly done much of the interior wood panelling himself, ensuring a high degree of care and attention to detail, with many delightful features.
The sauna on the ground floor is a perfect way to relax after a day on the slopes and the living/dining-room with its log fire and comfy seating provides a haven in which to unwind.
The resort centre and ski pistes are approximately 10 minutes walk from Chalet L’Ancolie, however our complimentary minibus service whisks you to and from the lifts, morning and afternoons, so there is no need to walk far, except the final 50 metre incline to the ski chalet.
For your added convenience, we can also arrange for a private rental ski and boot fitting service to come direct to the Chalet L’Ancolie. Approximate Transfer time to resort: Chambéry 1 hour 15 minutes, Geneva 2 hours

Meals - Chalet L'Ancolie, 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.
