From the moment you step into Chalet La Varappe, you know you’re somewhere rather special. Originally built by Mr Pomagalski (founder of the world-leading company, Poma), much of the interior is clad in the wood cleared whilst building the lift system in Méribel, giving the chalet an incredibly authentic and alpine-esque ambience. With its welcoming warmth and attention to detail, it’s not surprising that until now, La Varappe has been a private home. Now an exciting addition to our portfolio of exclusive chalets, it can at last be enjoyed by those looking for homely luxury after a long day on the slopes.

The heart of La Varappe is its alluringly cosy yet sumptuous sitting room. With its striking stone fireplace, exquisite artworks, intriguing antiques and quintessentially English furnishings, you’ll feel like you could curl up on the sofa forever.

The dining room’s laden bookcases and opulent furnishings promise a relaxed yet sophisticated culinary experience. And with 10 seats at the table, it’s a fantastic spot to get together over beautiful food and wine.

Its spacious terraces, garden and private outdoor hot tub allow you to marvel at the mountains even after you’ve kicked off your skis. The chalet also offers a steam room for aching muscles, a TV/games room and, of course, a large ski and boot room.

Located in the centre of Méribel, Chalet La Varappe sleeps 10 people in supreme comfort within five beautifully designed bedrooms, each with an en-suite bath or shower room. There is an additional attic bedroom suitable for two or more children.


Bedroom 1 - Twin or Super King with en-suite bathroom with shower over.

Bedroom 2 - Super-king (170 cms) with en-suite bathroom with shower over and balcony.

Bedroom 3 - Twin or king with en-suite shower room.

Bedroom 4 - Super King with en-suite bathroom, separate shower with balcony.

Bedroom 5 - Twin or super-king with en-suite bathroom and balcony

Bedroom 6 - Room under eaves suitable for two small children.

Private chauffeur service to and from the lifts/slopes

In the mornings, your personal driver, dedicated to your chalet, will be on hand in a toasty warm vehicle from 08.30 until 11.00 if needed, to take you to the slopes and help you load and unload your skis (and children!).

One of our drivers remains on duty and on-call from 11.00 to 17.30 (all our drivers have mobile phones). With just 20 minutes notice he/she can pick you up from anywhere in the valley and take you back to your chalet.

After 17.30 and before dinner, your designated chalet driver is available to pick you up and take you back to the chalet.

You can be driven to, and picked up from, anywhere you wish within the valley. This extends as far as Les Allues and Le Plantin.

Your private chauffeur service continues after dinner if needed (please pre-book with your driver before you sit down to dinner), until 12.00 midnight.

What's Included

You’ll have access to an exceptional concierge service, a dedicated minibus and chauffeur, childcare, professional masseuses and a dedicated professional team of staff.

Freshly prepared breakfast
Afternoon tea every day
Delicious four course dinners six days of your stay
Fine chateau and domaine-bottled wines
Unlimited champagne at any time. Complimentary bar of wine, beer, spirits and soft drinks

Skillfully prepared and elegantly presented, our professional chefs meticulously balance flavours and textures to create truly remarkable and memorable dishes. From breakfast through to sweet treats, canapés and dinner, our gourmet quality cuisine is what makes days on the mountain so satisfying.

Beautiful food calls for exceptional chefs, which is why we only hire fully qualified professionals with experience in top quality restaurants.  Using seasonal and locally sourced ingredients wherever possible, every meal is defined by flavour, texture and balance.

Setting yourself up for a great day on the slopes and rewarding yourself afterwards are some of the best elements of a skiing holiday. You'll start your day with a beautifully presented breakfast of fruit juices, a freshly made "smoothie" or fruit / vegetable juice, fresh coffees, teas, yoghurts, cereals, porridge, a hot dish - like a "Eggs Royale" or a "full English breakfast", jambon cru, cheeses, fresh fruit salad, fresh bread and freshly baked croissants and jams.

After your day on the slopes, homemade cakes and biscuits await you in the sitting room.

Dinner is the pièce de résistance. Before your meal, canapés and champagne allow you to unwind in true style. You're then treated to an exceptional four-course meal, rounded off with freshly ground coffee, a digestif and homemade truffles.

Children love staying in this chalet, and so do their parents. We’re always looking for ways to make your holiday and your children’s as happy and hassle-free as possible.

For instance, our chauffeured minibuses mean you don’t have to worry about getting the little ones and their ski equipment to or from the pistes. And we’ll gladly serve children’s high tea in the early evening so that you can relax and enjoy dinner with your friends later, while they play in the sitting room nearby or go to bed! Or, if you wish to eat together, your chef will tailor the food to suit young palates. On the chef’s night off, we provide children’s high tea and complimentary babysitting so that the adults can – if they wish – have a child-free evening, secure in the knowledge that their children are well looked after.

We’re also happy to book ski lessons (available for children over the age of four), lift passes and ski equipment in advance so that there’s less to think about when you arrive.

Children’s equipment such as cots, high chairs, sterilisers, baby listeners, a selection of games, sledges, toys and children’s DVDs are available and we can even stock up on nappies and wipes to save you bringing them with you. We also have a small number of pushchairs available, or can hire these for you if needed.


For childcare during the day, we're fortunate to have some fantastic childcare companies and professionals operating in Méribel and Val d'Isère and with whom we have excellent relationships. They’re able to offer private nannies to look after your children in the comfort of your chalet.

All the nannies we recommend and work with are English speaking, qualified to NNEB or equivalent standard or have significant formal childcare experience, and all hold an up-to-date paediatric first aid certificate and have had their references and police records checked, so you can rest assured your children are in safe hands.

This service must be pre-booked as availability is limited. You can either book a nanny for the whole week or outside school holiday periods more flexible packages are available.
