Chalet Etoile des Neiges Reviews
The week before Christmas, and how lucky were we with the snow. The chalet tucked away in a lovely area with fabulous views. The staff were at your beck and call, food tastie , and plentiful along with the wine, which was a great selection. It’s worth being venturous and try different wines every night, you won’t be disappointed. The hot tub made you feel like you were leading a millionaires life style, with champagne chilling in the snow next to the tub. Nothing to say about the skiing and resort, but anyone who has skied a lot, you know this is one of the best regions in the world. If i was to say go there, I’d say best not go, I don’t want it to booked up the next time I go. Happy skiing Best regards Andy

Ideal for couples and families alike. This chalet has adequate rooms, although not terribly large and lack drawer space. The views from most of the rooms and lounge area are fantastic! The hot tub after skiing was great. Free minibuses are laid on for the chalet guests, but the ski bus also stops at the top of the road if preferred. Meals are wonderful (lunch not included) and free wine throughout dinner saves a lot of money, as Meribel tends to be very pricey. The Meribar in town, near the Chaudanne lifts, is one of the best restaurants to visit for a varied menu and reasonable pricing at lunch times. It is an English run restaurant. We were lucky to have Laura & James as our Chalet Hosts. They were this year's award winners and deserved it. They are brilliant hosts - efficient, accommodating and friendly, but not intrusive. We went Feb half term so the slopes were busy as it was also the French half term, but the skiing generally is excellent and the pistes were in excellent condition, despite the lack of snow this winter. A Three Valleys lift pass is available, but we just skied in Meribel and there are plenty of runs to explore without paying extra for the whole region. We would certainly recommend the Chalet Etoile des Neiges and Meribel generally.
