    The “Mayfair of Méribel” is the nickname given to this area of Méribel because, if we may speak haughtily, it is regarded as very exclusive and is extremely well-positioned. Whilst le monde et sa mére were building on one side of Méribel, some smarty pants decided to build on the other side and thus Dou du Pont came into existence. Just before the Olympic Centre, it is a hop & a skip from the shops, bars & restaurants at the centre of Méribel and, to access the main lifts that depart from La Chaudanne, it’s a short walk and shorter skiWithin Méribel, location does not come much better than this apartment.

    In terms of the accommodation, this spacious duplex apartment has a stunning open-plan lounge & dining area with large balcony boasting uninterrupted views to the skiing above Méribel. Also on the main floor, there are three bedrooms - one double with shower en-suite and one twin room & one bunk room with a shared bathroom. Upstairs, in the Gods, you will find two further bedrooms - master with double & balcony and adjoining shower room & a triple room with bathroom.

    Please note that, for guests in this chalet, we offer a private mini-bus service to and from the slopes
    Service available from 8.30 - 10.30am and 3.30pm - 6.30pm Sunday to Friday
