With uninterrupted views of the forests and pistes of Méribel, Chalet Loden is hidden away up a winding pathway in a delightfully tranquil and sunny spot on the eastern side of the mountain.
If you are the type of skier or snowboarder who likes to make the most of a full day on the slopes, followed by the simple pleasure of flopping onto a comfy sofa by the fire and gazing at the mountain views, then Chalet Loden is for you (and of course we enhance that simple pleasure by adding afternoon tea into the mix!)
As one of this popular resort’s original chalets, there’s masses of space for relaxing in the L-shaped sitting room which surrounds an impressive fireplace – perfect on a wintry night. When the sun is shining, Chalet Loden is in a prime spot, and with its huge balcony doors and unimpeded views, you really appreciate the beauty of the mountain scenery.
In the evenings, the dining room has plenty of elbow room and you can tuck into your meal whilst enjoying the twinkling lights of the resort and the floodlit Roc de Fer piste.
The Loden also has large rooms and really comfy beds, with good quality bedding, so you’ll be well-rested and ready for action the next day, after your chalet breakfast.
Entrance: Ski room with boot warmer. Table tennis. WC.
First Floor: L-shaped living space, dining area and kitchen. Log fireplace. Large terrace.
Second Floor: Double room with en-suite. Double room. Twin room. Shared bathroom (bath with shower, WC, basin). Separate WC.

For ski access, the blue Doron run is just a short walk from the chalet’s entrance (approximately 100 metres), and this piste brings you down into the Chaudanne, Méribel’s main lift hub from which you can take the lifts in the direction of Courchevel or the Belleville Valley for Saint Martin, Les Menuires or Val Thorens.
An easy walk to the resort centre (approximately 15 minutes) or take the free local bus (a few minutes walk to the bus stop).

Raclette Evening – all ingredients, equipment and wine provided for a relaxed, traditional Savoyarde night in!
The smell of coffee in the morning will lure you to the breakfast table where you’ll find fresh baguettes, jams and butter alongside yoghurts, cereals, fruit juice and English tea every day.
A hearty cooked breakfast option is provided on four mornings by our team. On the self-service mornings, fresh croissants and pain au chocolats will be delivered with your morning baguettes. If you want to keep on top of your 5-a-day, there’s a fruit bowl available – help yourself!
After whizzing around the mountain all day, you’ll probably be famished and you’ll certainly deserve a treat!
When you get back from the slopes you’ll find fresh baguettes, butter and jams as well as biscuits or cake accompanied by a proper cup of English tea or coffee. Everything will be laid out on the table ready and waiting for you to get stuck in
Our chalet hosts will do all the hard work for you so you can make your most of your time of the slopes. They will prepare, cook and serve a delicious dinner-party style evening meal on five evenings during your stay, so that you can relax around the table and not have to lift a finger!
Unlimited wine (choice of red, white and rosé) is served through the meal, and you’ll finish with coffees and teas in the sitting room whilst your host/s take care of the washing up!
On one evening during the week, your hosts will leave everything you need for a traditional ‘raclette’ – an indulgent alpine treat that no ski holiday should be without! You’ll have all the equipment and ingredients – raclette cheese, sliced meats, salad, potatoes (and wine!) – for a party, Savoyard style! Dessert will also be left for you and your hosts will show you how the machine works in advance.
To accompany your meal, we’ve picked some lovely easy-drinking red and white wine, which is served throughout dinner.
The chalet has an honesty bar with beers and mixers/soft drinks as well as some snacks in case you feel peckish. You’re more than welcome to bring your own drinks and spirits into the chalet, via ‘Duty Free’ or the local supermarket.
For our youngest guests we provide a hearty and healthy meal between at 6.00pm on five evenings so that the grown-ups can relax during their meal later in the evening.
The menu covers family favourites with the aim of providing a few of those all-important five-a-day (as well as some treats for dessert!) On Raclette Night children are welcome to join in the fun, or our hosts can leave something easy to serve if you prefer.
If your child has any special dietary requirement then do please let us know before you arrive. Children’s tea is served with a glass of milk, fruit juice or our lovely mountain water.
For younger babies, our hosts can whizz up some fruit or vegetables, just let us know in advance. Formula milk and jars of baby food are available in our local supermarket.
We’re happy to cater for vegetarians as well as our guests with allergies and intolerances at no extra cost.
We do ask that you let us know as much information as possible prior to your arrival so that we can make sure that our hosts can adapt their menu accordingly, which you can do via direct email to our office, or through our online booking system.
Hosts’ Day Off
The chalet hosts have time off mid-week. On two mornings you’ll have bread delivered to the chalet and can help yourself to breakfast (your host will show you where to find everything). They’ll also leave your afternoon tea laid out and ready to help yourselves to upon your return.
On one evening we provide all you need for a Raclette Night (see above), and on one you will have the opportunity to visit a local restaurant or order a takeaway meal.
Your hosts will therefore be available at your chalet for five mornings and five evenings of your week’s stay.
