"Small, cramped and basic they may be, but these apartments have the brilliant advantage of an awesome location on the side of a piste for the ultimate doorstep skiing experience. For après ski, there is a regular bus between Meribel and Meribel-Motterat. A top option for skiers and boarders on a budget."
Le Hameau de Mottaret Apartments, Mottaret, France
The Hameau du Mottaret Apartments are good-value accommodation within the Hameau du Mottaret complex. Just a short gondola ride up from the resort centre, the complex is home to a range of shops and restaurants, as well as its own shopping centre, a bar with live music, a children’s club and even a fitness centre.
The apartments themselves are nestled inside one of the dark-wood chalet-style buildings, and come in different shapes and sizes, with the largest sleeping up to six people. They’re simple yet comfortable, and come with a living area, while others also have separate bedrooms.
If you stay at the apartments, you’ll have free use of the Chalets gondola that takes you down into the centre of Méribel-Mottaret. Here you’ll find a variety of lifts that’ll link you to the world-famous Three Valleys ski area, as well as shops, restaurants and bars (great for when you can’t be bothered to cook).
If carrying your equipment over to the gondola seems too much hard work, then you’ll be glad to know that the complex is next to the piste, so you can just click on your bindings and head straight down the hill – perfect.
The apartments are located at a top of winding road, quite a distance from the centre of Méribel-Mottaret. To save you the long walk down to the town, you can catch the Chalets gondola next to the complex. At the bottom you can pick from a selection of lifts – the Pas du Lac can take you towards Courchevel, while the Platieres heads over in the direction of Val Thorens. You can also head further down the mountain to Méribel by taking the Truite blue run.
