Chalet Castor, Meribel, France
Situated close to our Chalet Lou Trave, the Castor is a charming, rustic chalet, tucked away in the tranquil Mussillon district, about 800m or 8-10 minutes’ walk from both the resort centre and the piste that descends to the main Chaudanne lift.
Ski access is easy with the ski bus service and the bus stop just 3 minutes' walk away. The service runs throughout the day and in to the evenings until 11pm. There are also extra departures at peak skiing times (when the lifts are open and close), and buses then are every 5 minutes.
The accommodation is set over three floors with the majority of the cosy bedrooms on the second floor, some with exposed beams and partially under eaves, and all four of them with an en suite shower room. Pine panelling in the bedrooms and in the first floor living/dining room creates a warm ambience, complimented by white-washed stone walls and classic soft furnishings. The comfortable living room is L-shaped and bright thanks to several windows and the doors leading to the modest balcony at one end.
For those wishing to sample Meribel’s renowned nightlife, the lively O’Sullivans bar and club, (formerly the legendary Dick’s Tea Bar), is only a short walk away.

Evening meals will be on 5 nights.
Guests will continue to receive breakfast for 7 mornings, afternoon tea and cake for 5 days and 5 nights of three course evening meal with quality complementary wines during meal service.
Food is a feature of any ski holiday and we set very high standards for our cuisine..
Start the day with 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.
A delicious homemade cake accompanied by hot drinks will be laid out for you every day except on the staff’s one day off per week.
Our three-course dinner menus start with an glass of Prosecco followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, accompanied by a choice of complimentary wines, with coffee or tea to follow.
Vegetarian options are available if advised in advance. Other special dietary requirements must also be advised to us at the time of booking in order for your chalet hosts to be fully prepared and incur a charge of £35 per person per week to cover the cost of additional ingredients. Failing to book special dietary requirements in advance can incur additional supplements in resort.
On your Host’s days off, they will leave a simpler continental breakfast out for you to help yourselves, there is no afternoon tea on these days, and you can dine out locally in the evening. Your Resort Representative will gladly help out with information and make a reservation for you if you wish.

We serve a separate High Tea at 5:30pm for children aged 12 years and under with an appropriate menu and pureed food is available for infants on request. Parents must accompany their children at high tea. Unless children are part of an ‘exclusive use’ whole-chalet booking in chalets, it is not possible for children aged 12 years and under to eat at the adult sitting. When part of a 'exclusive use' whole-chalet booking children may eat with the adults for a supplement of £39 per child if they have received child discounts.
