Chalethotel Tarentaise

With its stunning piste-side location, the Chalethotel Tarentaise is ideally located in Mottaret in the Three Valleys ski area.  Not only can you ski in and ski out at this chalet-hotel, but you also watch skiers glide past as you breakfast and as you take a drink on the lounge right on the piste.

Everything at this chalet-hotel is designed to make life easy. The spacious bedrooms have plenty of room for an extra child's bed and some are interconnecting.  All the rooms are thoughtfully furnished and have TV's showing English channels. 

The dining room is bright and airy with superb views across the piste, it has plenty of atmospheres and is definitely a place to linger and indulge.  The bar leads out on to a large sunny terrace - a great place for an après ski drink, or why not curl up by the log fire in the lounge.  It's simply a lovely, relaxing chalet-hotel - and ideal for skiers who want to be in the heart of the three valleys. 

The hotel has it's own Viva beauty salon where, you can have a massage, facial or manicure.

Reviewed by Jane Reed

We stayed at the Tarentaise Chalet in Meribel. The service from the staff was welcoming and friendly. If there was the slightest problem it was dealt with quickly and efficiently. The food was excellent. Our room overlooking the slopes was lovely. Great to be able to ski in and out. Ski Solutions organised the trip and found just what we were looking for! Overall a great holiday, Thanks!!

Resort details


Meribel is an attractive chalet-style purpose-built ski resort situated right at the heart of the world’s largest ski area.

Meribel is the middle resort of the major three resorts (Meribel, Courchevel and Val Thorens) that make up the massive Trois Vallées ski area. The combination of great skiing, a top location and the pretty chalet village makes Meribel one of the most popular destinations for British holiday-makers.

Ski Area

The best thing about Meribel is its location. Right in the middle of the Three Valleys, which has a massive 600km of skiable terrain, it is arguably the best place to stay if you want to experience the whole area effortlessly. The local skiing in Meribel is varied with some long cruisy blues, as well as some more challenging slopes, such as the Mont Vallon runs and some good off-piste when there is enough snow.

The ski lifts in the Three Valleys are all very fast and efficient, such as the Saulire Express Gondola, which takes people from the bottom of Meribel to the Saulire Peak (2700m) and the slopes of Courchevel in just 12 minutes. Getting to Val Thoren takes a bit longer, but is still relatively easy to do. As the region is so popular, big queues can often form at the resort-connecting lifts, especially at the beginning and ending of the ski day and at peak times in the season such as half-term.

The Resort

Depending on how you classify things, it comprises five different settlements. The first and lowest is Brides-les-Bains which lies at an altitude of just 650m. It is linked to Meribel by a three-stage telecabine but the days when you can return to Brides-les-Bains on skis are very limited.

Next comes Les Allues, a sleepy old Savoyarde village with one modest hotel and a handful of privately run catered chalets. A little further up the hill lies Meribel-Village (1,340m), which has grown in size thanks to the ‘Les Fermes de Meribel-Village’ development of chalet-style apartment blocks. Nowadays Meribel-Village easily links into the main Meribel ski area via a four-seater chairlift.

The principal Meribel settlement is simply called Meribel and sprawls up a west-facing hillside from 1,400m to 1,750m. This is the place that most people think of when they talk about Meribel ski holidays and it is arguably the prettiest post-war purpose-built resort in Europe, largely thanks to its Scottish founder, Colonel Peter Lindsay. While other new French resorts were being built in rather unattractive raw concrete, Meribel began as a collection of wooden chalets and the new properties are still built in this style today.

Lastly there is Meribel-Motterat which is higher up the valley and has more ski in/ski out access to the slopes and is particularly good for beginners.

Much of the accommodation in Meribel is not ski in/ski out so you have to use the free public bus or often with catered chalets there is a driver service to take you to and from the Chaudanne (where the main lifts are).

If you want to explore the town it is easily accessed by walking or by bus once skis and boots have been removed. Meribel has a very lively nightlife, multiple clubs and bars stay open late and if you are in the main Meribel resort it is not far to walk in. If you are a bit further out you might prefer a more relaxing night in, making your own entertainment in your chalet.
