Another wonderful holiday!

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

This is the second year that we have stayed with Delicious Mountain in Chalet La Chouette and we were just as impressed with the whole experience as last time. Stu, Lou, Chris and Kirsty looked after us brilliantly, the chalet is fantastic and the food was incredible. Despite staying in late April, there was plenty of snow. The fact we hope to be back again next year says it all!

Highlights: sunshine on the terrace, delicious cakes, amazing breakfasts and evening meals, great wine, lifts to the slopes, fantastic, friendly service

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

A brilliant experience all round. This was my second time staying at Chalet La Chouette and I would happily recommend it to anyone wanting a luxury ski experience in Meribel. From the delicious home-made cakes that were waiting every day when we got back from the slopes, to the lifts to and from the slopes every day, the friendly welcome and hospitality shown by everyone at Delicious Mountain, the huge breakfasts, and not forgetting the amazing canapes and 3 course meal each evening, there is really nothing I would have changed about the week! Thanks Stu, Lou, Kirsty and Chris for making it such a fantastic trip, I hope to be back again next season.

A gorgeous and spacious place with a wonderful atmosphere

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

As a family of 5 with 3 girls aged 11, 7 and 4 staying with 3 other families we were concerned about space but everything was perfect. La Chouette is a gorgeous and spacious place with a wonderful atmosphere. Lou, Stu, Kirsty and Chris looked after us all brilliantly with delicious food and great advice from childcare, ski lessons to restaurants and reservations - nothing was too much trouble and even before we got there we had exchanged numerous emails! The ski hire was so easy with Ski Candy coming direct to the chalet, the ski passes were delivered to the door and there were constant lifts to and from the piste - it was all hassle free and extremely relaxing. Thank you to everyone at Delicious Mountain.

The Best Chalet in Meribel

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

This is the second year that we have come back to Delicious Mountain and it just keeps on getting better and better!

A MASSIVE Thankyou to Lou, Stu, Chris and Kirsty for once again looking after us all so brilliantly. It really does feel like home-from-home.

Everything once again was absolutely perfect from the amazing breakfast by Kirsty and Chris to the mouth-watering cooking from Lou in the evenings. And a special mention must go out for Kirsty's home-made roulade/swiss roll!

Everyone hugely enjoyed the weeks skiing, food, hospitality, apres ski and of course the port!

Cant wait to do it all over again next year!

Felt simultaneously very spoilt and part of the family - fantastic

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

We felt truly looked after - things which can be a hassle - lift passes, getting to and from the slopes, kit storage, packed lunches - were managed sensibly and seamlessly, so absolutely no stress - the food was superb and plentiful, and nothing seemed too much trouble. Brilliant touches, like canapes before dinner and cheese in the sitting room after, made this holiday very special.

Best Ski Chalet Ever

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

Four of us stayed here for one week in March 2015. The weather was good all week and the snow was in pretty good nick, just starting to slush up a bit in the lower slopes. The chalet has just 7 bedrooms, with the sitting room, dining room and kitchen on the ground floor. The boot and ski room is on the ground floor and the sauna is down in the basement. There is a tv room on the lower floor which also doubled up as a place for a private massage. We travelled in in a group of 4, with two of us in the grand top floor room 1, and two in room 6 on the lower floor. Everything is in excellent decorative order, with a tasteful wooden finish and a clean modern feel.

Rooms: Well, room 1 is hard to beat, being very spacious and having its own balcony. Bath, separate shower, and enough chairs for the four of us to sit together for a couple of drinks at the end of the day. Room 6 was a lot less spacious, but still very comfortable. It has Austrian twin beds with a comfy double mattress, soft duvet, lovely long thick curtains and a spacious double wardrobe that has ample space for a couple's ski gear plus a safe (not every rooom has one). The bathroom is modern with a bath/shower. The shower was powerful, adjustable and could be hand held and there was absolutely always steaming hot water available. Our room was always warm, but not stuffy. There are also plenty of power sockets all round the room and in the bathroom which is really handy for phone charging, boot battery charging etc. A hairdryer is provided in the bathroom cabinet.

Boot Room There is secure space for skis and boards in the locked garage, which doubled up as a food store, so no petrol smells and there is space to sit and gear up. In the adjacent hallway there are heated boot racks and shelf space for helmets, a new must for storage space since everyone wears them now. Access is by passcode.

Sitting room This is ranged round a lovely fireplace (lit every evening) with plenty of comfy sofas and a big coffee table featuring a 3D map of the 3 valleys (beneath glass). Its an excellent place to lounge about when you get in from the slopes as well as before and after dinner. The fridges contain beer and chilled alcoholic drinks and on the other side of the room, non-chilled spirits plus fruit slices, glasses etc. Ouside is a balcony with deck chairs and benches and beautiful views over the valley - on cooler days enjoy them from the big windows and patio doors.

Kitchen /Dining room The kitchen area was for staff only really, although it is all one space, but everything you could possibly need is available in the dining area. We ate round a huge table which was big enough to fit round comfortably but still small enough to be one big sociable group. There is a coffee machine and kettle as well as a selction of teas and hot chocolate. And marshmallows.

Food This place is called Delicious Mountain and it is well named. Every meal, every snack was prepared with care, and without fail the meals were truly delicious. This is not a place that serves up a "stew", the meals are original and something to look forward to.

Breakfast The table groaned beneath the selection of breakfast goodies - cereals, fresh croissants and pain au chocolats, home-made jams, marmalades - and Marmite (get in!) fruit, fruit juice, with everything in nice containers too. e.g. the milk is in retro Unigate bottles with 1970s cereal ads on them; flashback to my youth there! Every day (including chalet "day off") there was hot breakfast, which was served from hot pots and included a varying selection - bacon every day, plus scrambled egg and things like baked beans, baked tomato, hash browns, mushrooms, etc. If you fancy your eggs done differently, just ask.

Cakes and Canapes When we got back from slopes each afternoon, there were cakes or cookies ready for us - plus gluten free option as there were coeliac guests. At 1930 the canapes came out and every day there was a different cake and different canapes, all beautifully cooked and absolutely delicious.

Evening meal Three courses, 6 of the 7 nights. This is where the chalet earns the title "Delicious Mountain" Here is an example of one evening's menu
- Beetroot and tomato soup with yoghurt and caper ice cubes
- Lamb kofte, lamb chump steaks, roast cherry tomato salsa, lemon rice, roasted vegetables and hazelnut dukkah
- Chantilly cream chocolate profiteroles (made from scratch)
After dinner, as a means of encouraging everyone out of the dining room while they clear up, Stu & Lou laid out cheeses and port in front of the sitting room fire. Perfect!

Chalet Staff Stu, Lou, Chris and Kirsty were all lovely. Nothing was too much trouble and they actively discouraged us from so much as taking our own cups back to the kitchen. They were really friendly, welcoming and rushed about to ensure that no-one staying in the chalet needed to lift a finger. They always had smiles on their faces and a cheery comment. We were dropped off by the Plain de l'Homme chair/Saulire gondola every morning and collected from various bars when we were done for the day.

Services There is also a handy list of local providers of various services. These include sports and relaxing massages, ski servicing and tuition. My skis played up on the first day and Stu & Lou had someone to the chalet, looking at my skis that evening. We also had a sports massage which made a huge difference to day two on the slopes!

In summary, this chalet is wonderful and sited as it is in the largest ski domain in the world, it is an unbeatable combination. After 20 years of skiing, my OH and I reflected on all the places we've stayed and all the features we've liked best, and decided that the only thing this place lacks is a hot tub. And I notice on their facebook page that a hot tub is being built ready for next winter. Can't wait!

Fantastic accomodation in a fantastic resort

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

In 35 years of alpine skiing holidays Chalet La Chouette is quite honestly the best place I have ever stayed - chalets or hotels. Alright it might not be right next to the slopes but its other features far outweigh this minor disadvantage, and in any case Stuart always seems to be available to get you to and from the slopes. The food is superb, the views magnificent and the ambience warm and welcoming. I've experienced Lou's cooking for over four years now and each year the food is consistently outstanding and I don't know how she does it but she seems to get even better each year. The rooms are large and comfortable and I hope to return there for many years to come.

Simply Delicious!

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

There are hundreds of ski chalets, so how do you pick one? Well, what you need is a personal touch. This is what you get with Delicious Mountain - Stu and Lou - like mom and dad will feed you, arrange pick ups and remind you to take your ski pass with you! They are focused on delivering perfection in the kitchen and their ethos is to make the chalet feel like it is home for you for the week. The food is out of this planet - amazing. The wine is free flowing and the chalet is cozy with real fireplace, nice library, cinema room and a sauna. And they will also advise you on a painless ski-rental outfit that will deliver the skis to the chalet at no extra cost. All you got to do is enjoy the slopes!

First Class Hospitality

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

We have just returned from a wonderful week at Chalet La Chouette in Meribel with Delicious Mountain. Until now, we have had a self-catering chalet and, as we are in the hospitality business, we enjoy this. Now, though, it will be very hard to go back to self-catering! We were looked after so well by Lou and Stu. The chalet was stunning - great location, beautiful views, warm and comfortable in every way, and the food was seriously impressive with the excellent extra touch of matching wines to enjoy with the delicious mountain dinners. Lou and Stu have very carefully thought through every stage of the luxury catered chalet experience - from booking to post-departure - and we were delighted. We were a group of 5 adults, sharing the chalet with a group of 4 adults and 5 children. There was plenty of space for everyone, with the adults by the fire in the lounge and the children in the cinema room downstairs! From breakfast to the cheese and port after dinner, the catering was without fault - carefully planned and well executed by Lou, Stu, Kirsty and Chris. Overall, it was a really relaxing and enjoyable ski week, with everything looked after for us so well - and for that we are so grateful and would not hesitate to return next year - and to recommend Delicious Mountain to others!

Superb - the perfect chalet experience with delicious food

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

Many catered chalets promise, few deliver to the standard that Stuart and Louise have achieved with Delicious Mountain, supported by their morning hosts Chris and Kirsty. The chalet itself is on a quiet road just a few minutes' walk from Meribel-Centre. There are free rides to the slopes in the Land Rover - you feel very smug zooming past the Porsche drivers struggling to get traction in the snow! The accommodation in the chalet is of a very high standard. All the rooms are finished in Alpine wood. The bathrooms, in particular, deserve a mention: the slate wall tiles are very attractive.

The highlight, however, is of course the food. Delicious Mountain lives up to its name. Breakfast was generous and I was particularly fond of Kirsty's French crepes. On my friend's birthday, Louise baked a skiing-themed carrot cake. Each evening, dinner was superb - canapés, three courses. Natural wines, low in sulphites (no hangover) were matched to the food. I have never heard of a catered chalet that provides a complimentary spirits and mixers fridge for guests before.

If you want a ski holiday where you can relax, knowing that every detail is taken care of, then Delicious Mountain is a must. It was my second catered chalet holiday and I'll definitely try and make it back.

An amazing experience we would love to share

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

My wife and I cannot say enough about how wonderful our stay was at Chalet La Chouette. We have spent the last two weeks doing nothing but talking about how amazing the whole experience was - the food, the chalet, the town, the skiing and most of all the people. It was our first time staying in a catered chalet, and to us, the experience was far superior to that of a hotel.

To start, and most importantly, Stou, Lou, Kirsty and Chris are a dream team. They make you feel so welcome from the moment you walk through the door. Every morning, Chris and Kirsty prepare a very filling hot breakfast before dropping you slope side. While you are out, their work continues and when you return in the afternoon cakes and coffee await you (our favorite was the lemon poppy seed drizzle cake). Some of the best time of the day is just before dinner as everyone filters home with stories from the day and catches up over an always creative, and very tasty pre dinner appetizer. During this time, Stou builds a fire, music plays, everyone chats, laughs, drinks wine and unwinds before sitting for dinner. Words cannot adequately describe dinner. Stou and Lou are amazing chefs. The menu is creative, the presentation is perfect, and the taste is consistent and top shelf. We spent two weeks traveling around France on this vacation and the best meals we had Stou and Lou prepared. In addition to the great food, the dinner experience is so much fun and only gets better each night as everyone gets to know each other. By the end of the week, having dinner was like going out with good friends. It was so much more than we ever expected.

We would definitely return, and will highly recommend it to anyone looking for a vacation with a more social element to it. It will forever be memorable, and will always hold a special place for us as it was our honeymoon. Stou, Lou, Kirsty and Chris really put together an amazing week, and we were lucky to be part of it.

If you go, ask Stou, Lou, Kristy or Chris for recommendations on places to go/eat/see during the day skiing - they know the area very well and won't lead you astray.

If you haven't skied Meribel/Courchevel/Val Thorens before - don't be overwhelmed by the size. My advice is to take one day for each valley, and then return to areas you liked later in the week. We loved the skiing in Courchevel 1650 - it was like skiing on the moon.

The Chalet is beautiful. We were lucky enough to stay in Room 1 on the top floor and loved it.

It is a very worthwhile trip to make if you are coming from the US. Definitely a good way to spend a week, whether it is your only week or part of a longer stay.

A Perfect Week

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

This was our first stay at Chalet La Chouette and it will be hard to beat if we ever go anywhere else.

The large chalet has beautiful views across the valley and is very comfortable with a pleasant relaxed ambiance. Being located just up the road from the centre makes it nice and quiet and having Stu or Chris on hand for drop off or pick up at the slopes made us feel very spoilt.

Best of all though were the meals. Good filling breakfasts to suit everyone's taste, yummy cakes waiting for us on our return from the slopes and divine dinners, beautifully presented and far above the usual chalet style of 'good home cooking'. Every mouthful of every meal was indeed delicious. Nothing is too much trouble for Lou & Stu and their lovely helpers, Chris and Kirsty.

We are sure to return. A & P

Our second visit to Lou and Stu, this time in La Chouette. Food again delicious, creative and a joy to look forward to each evening. Lou and Stu also know the area and the mountains, contributing their knowledge if asked. Their welcome to the chalet is v warm and the atmosphere always welcoming. The bedrooms (with en suite) are all v comfortable, some with more exciting views than others. If you take time out from skiing - the stylish but comfortable living room and sunny balcony have stunning views over the valley and the mountains opposite.

I cannot recommend Delicious Mountain enough

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

I cannot recommend Delicious Mountain enough. Having never done a "Chalet" holiday before we were a bit unsure of what to expect, but we would certainly do another after this experience.

The chalet is in a great location, close to the slopes and with amazing views across the valley, but most importantly Stu, Lou, Kirsty and Chris were great hosts. The food lives up to the name with a great breakfast selection, fantastic freshly baked cakes every afternoon and different menu's every night that are far from ordinary ski fare. I would thoroughly recommend staying here, although in doing so I know it's going to make it harder for me to get a booking in future!

Didn't think it possible ... even better!

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

Having had a wonderful stay here with Delicious Mountain last year, we vowed that we'd be back. So, just returned after almost a year since the last trip it's time for an update, I didn't think it possible but the food is even more delicious! Lou really puts her heart into her menu creations and delivers wonderful palettes of flavours and textures that just work and leave you wishing that you had just half her imagination and talent.

The thing that really impresses though is how the whole package works so well, with everything (and everyone), working to a high standard. The professionalism blended perfectly with welcoming friendliness, the chauffeuring to the slopes, the wonderful cakes when returning, pre-dinner taste-treats, and generously comfortable rooms all blend to form a #1 act.

Oh, and of course it's all located to access some of the best skiing and snowsport variety anywhere. Be warned though, you'll need to ski or ride hard to save returning heavier than you set out!

Many thanks again to Lou, Stu, Chris and Kirsty - All the best, Avril

Wonderful stay .... again!

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

This is the second time I've stayed with Lou and Stu. The first time was worth 5 stars and, if anything, this visit was even better. Stu and Lou's hospitality, very ably assisted by Chris and Kirsty, is amazing - nothing seems too much trouble - from the daily transport to and from the slopes to sorting out any problems. The food - from a substantial breakfast and packed lunch, through tasty cakes at afternoon tea to a varied, imaginative and incredibly mouth-watering evening meal - was wonderful. I can't recommend Delicious Mountain too highly.

Luxurious and Friendly

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

Stu & Lou provide high quality cuisine in a luxury chalet. They make you feel completely at ease and able to ask for anything extra - dietary quirks, a lift to/from the town centre, help renting skis, &c. It is that personal care from good friends that makes them stand out, although it is the high standard of their food which has justifiably made their reputation.

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

My 3rd year with Lou and Stu was as wonderful as ever with their own brand of "nothing is too much trouble" hospitality and, as the name implies, simply delicious food. The ample and varied breakfast kept us going on the mountain and the cakes laid out on our return at tea time were irresistible. Then there are the dinners which are so imaginative and come with a really good selection of wines, which are a cut above the usual chalet offerings. I honestly cant find anything remotely critical to say.

After a very successful visit in 2014 I returned in January 2015, and as before was very impressed by everything Delicious Mountain offers. Cuisine is of an ever increasingly high standard, always beautifully presented, and a totally new menu from a year ago. Vegetarian dishes are imaginative and tasty. The staff exude helpfulness and friendliness, nothing is too much trouble. Guests are taken to and from the slopes and their individual travel arrival and departure points. The chalet is beautifully situated in a quiet area with lovely views, and contains a sauna and heated boot rods so that feet are treated to warm boots each morning. Delicious Mountain and Chalet La Chouette are very highly recommended.

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

If you want to be spoiled rotten, abandon any thought of a diet until later, much later, ski every day having been dropped off and then be picked up again for tea and cakes, then this has to be the place. It is difficult to exaggerate just how good the food is, how helpful, welcoming and hospitable Stu and Lou and their sidekicks Chris and Kirsty really are. Not at all difficult to decide to go back.

Lou and Stu (and Kirsty and Chris) really do know how to look after you and ensure that you have the most fantastic holiday. The chalet is beautiful, with a lovely big, welcoming lounge and the hospitality is second to none. Great breakfasts, lovely cakes and Lou produced some of the best food I have tasted. Nothing is too much trouble, and the lifts to and from the slopes/apres bar is done with no bother and with a smile. The whole experience was so good that we have booked again for next year - and we did that before we had even left! Can't recommend this place highly enough - just glad that we have rebooked as I'm pretty sure that it will get booked up pretty quickly for 2015/2016!

New Year at Chalet la Chouette

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

A group of friends (3 families) who don't see each other very much came together from America, Lincolnshire and Hampshire.....and we'd sum it up as absolutely fantastic!!!! We brought a huge dumping of snow and glorious blue skies and sunshine and fantastic skiing.....but to really top it all off is the chalet and hospitality we received at chalet la Chouette. The food was above and beyond expectation and like dining out in a 5 star restaurant each evening and the childrens evening meals definitely hit the spot....we were taken to and from the slopes when ever we wanted and then greeted by delicious afternoon teas on our return, Kirsty's chocolate brownies were the best. We would highly highly recommend this chalet...and we will all be back!!!! The Mowbrays, Rees and Deakins.

Fantastic place to spend Christmas

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

This really is the nicest chalet we have ever stayed in. Just returned from spending Christmas week here with friends and can't find anything to fault it. The wonderful hosts Lou and Stu did everything they could to make it a memorable week, assisted by the charming Kirsty and Chris - the perfect dream team. The Chalet was impeccably clean and our room on the top floor rivalled that of any top hotel. We were treated to amazing food every night, starting with tempting canapés and complimentary drinks, followed by four courses of beautifully cooked, imaginative and well flavoured dishes. Kirsty's daily afternoon cakes were amazing, especially the birthday cake, Christmas cake and Santa hat chocolate brownies. Stu and Chris were always on hand to take us to and from the slopes, and the chalet is an easy walk into town. There were so many small touches which gave this chalet the edge over others we have stayed in.

As brilliant as we expected!

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

We had very high expectations of our holiday- having been looked after by Stu and Lou elsewhere over a number of years - and were not disappointed! The food was as delicious as always and the drinks were good quality and plentiful. The chalet is very spacious, with lovely balconies and views. It is a pleasant walk to the centre of Meribel for shopping and evening activities and the lifts that Stu and Sally provided to and from the pistes each day meant that it didn't matter that the location is not ski-in, ski-out. It was lovely to have nice rooms, a log fire, sauna and cinema room. However, the real highlights of the chalet were the food and service. Thank you Stu, Lou and Sally! See you again soon!

Fantastic

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

Really fantastic week. One of the nicest chalets i've stayed in, very comfortable, great living spaces and very good sized bedroom. Lou and Stu are very hospitable and make you feel at home. Food is fantastic with a really varied menu through out the week. Lou and Stu were also very accomodating as we were a large group with people turning up at a number of different times. The lift to the slopes in the morning and evening is very useful indeed (although it is walkable - just). Overall a fantastic holiday - thank you!

Save a week for us next year please!

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

We first stayed at La Chouette 17 years ago and whilst it was great then, it is even better now thanks to the charming Stu and Lou and the fantastic service they provide. Close enough to the centre of Meribel and with superb views, the chalet provides very good accommodation for all the family. The food was truly exceptional and the wine flowed. Excellent service and nothing was too much trouble. Save a week for us next year please!

The Best Chalet Food we have Ever Had

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

Fantastic service from a delightful couple, and the best chalet food we have ever had. Lou is a superb chef, the best breakfasts on the slopes, clean plates every night for early childrens supper, and sumptuous dinners and good wine! Lovely bright chalet with great views, and all rooms good.

We have booked for next season

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

It's very hard to improve on the service provided at Chalet La Chouette. Lou & Stu, who are both wonderful hosts, work exceptionally hard to make sure that your holiday experience is is first rate.

The chalet is of a very high standard, and the open fire each evening creates a warm and very welcoming atmosphere, setting the scene for a dinner party every night....starting with canapés and followed by carefully selected wines to compliment the beautifully cooked and presented 4 course meal. The food is truly delicious and plentiful, served in a relaxed and friendly manner.

Although the Chalet is not directly next to the slopes, the daily drop off and pick up service is tailored to meet your needs

We are confident you will not be disappointed with DC....we have booked for next season

"Amazing Mountain", "Incredible Mountain"

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

Lou & Stu could have called it "Amazing Mountain", "Incredible Mountain" ... any of these would have been just as good in describing the experience. Lou & Stu truly understand the meaning of hospitality & service. On top of that they are great chefs, so the food is excellent. The chalet might not be on the slopes, but you get so much (more) chalet and Stu's shuttle service makes it even better. Feel free to book this great home away from home, just not all at once. We'd love to have an opening next year.

Everything was perfect

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

Everything was perfect; Lou and Stu (and Sally who did a couple of days with them) were fun, welcoming, helpful and incredibly hard working but always with a smile and friendly chat. The chalet is beautiful and spacious with great views, there was plenty of comfy sofas to fall into when you come back in and a cinema room downstairs. Stu was always happy to transport people to and from the slopes. The food was fantastic and there was always loads of it, can't stress how good the food was enough. Big breakfasts with English every day, fresh fruit, croissants, Lou's home made jams which were awesome, great cakes for when you come in from the slopes and then 4 course meals every evening that would rival my favourite restaurants! Wine was good and plentiful as was the gin. Chalet was spotlessly clean, beds very comfortable, bathrooms nice. Will be booking again for next year. I broke my arm half way through the week but still had one of the best ski holidays to date! Thankyou very much guys!

The nicest place I've stayed

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

I've skied in Meribel for about 12 weeks over the last 15 years and this was the nicest place I've stayed with comfortable accommodation, lovely open fire and comfortable living room with amazing views through picture windows and a balcony that will be really lovely in the spring. Stu and Lou worked hard and made the trip very relaxing.

I can't recommend them highly enough

We recently stayed with Stu & Louise and found the whole stay to be fantastic.

We were fortunate with our fellow guests, all of which were great company. The accommodation is superb as is Stuart & Louise's hospitality. They really do work well together to ensure you have a great holiday and I can't recommend them highly enough.

Wishing you both all the best for the future,

Lou & Stu are great hosts

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

I had a wonderful stay with Delicious Mountain. We were all very well looked after with fantastic breakfasts with the all important fry up to keep one energised through the day. The evening meals were to a very high standard and I was always a little sad when my plate was finished.

Lou & Stu are great hosts and I wish them all the luck for the future and will hopefully one day return.

Best, Dan

A warm and welcoming chalet with beautiful views. Lou prepares tasty meals and delicious home made cakes (vegetarian on request too). All round great service and attention to detail, Lou and Stu have lots of local contacts and will help with airport transfers, private ski lessons, ski equipment hire, restaurant reservations, ski passes, even booking a massage.

The food was perfect, as was the care for each guest

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

I've learnt never underestimate the power of detail. I've been very lucky that my work has taken me to quite a few hotels. A real variety some 5 star, some pretty basic, all the ones that work have people who really care running them, this detail and care are key. The owners Louise and Stu have managed to hit pretty much every key part of making their attention to detail work. The chalet is efficiently run, with just enough luxury. The food was perfect, as was the care for each guest, they seamlessly ensure that everyone is looked after exceptionally well. I found them in Dec and I'm booked to be back in Feb. I am so pleased they are doing so well. I just hope i will be able to get in again next year and many years to come.

Outstanding hosts - nothing is too much trouble

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

We first skied in Meribel over 30 years ago and have stayed in multi-starred hotels and self-catering apartments, as well as chalets: our first choice would now be Delicious Mountain. Stu and Lou are outstanding hosts - nothing is too much trouble. Lou is an accomplished gourmet cook and Stu is the fixer, from lighting apres-ski fires to piloting the go-anywhere Land Rover down to/back from the lifts. The chalet is well located and well-appointed. One of the variable you can't control is fellow guests...we were blessed: funny, articulate, great dinner companions, and good skiers. We would recommend (already have!) this chalet to any group/family/couple looking for a fantastic stay in Meribel. Sam & Meri

The food is fantastic, nothing is too much trouble.

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

We (4 guys) stayed with a Lou and Stu at the Chalet La Chouette in Meribel at the beginning of February. Everything you'll read in all the other reviews is true. You're invited at the beginning of the week to treat the chalet like home and it really feels like that. The rooms are comfortable, the living room is a great social space.

The food is fantastic, nothing is too much trouble. I mentioned one morning that you never see back bacon in France. The next morning back bacon appeared for breakfast. An individual response like that simply wouldn't happen in chalets run by larger organisations.

You really couldn't ask for more in a ski chalet.

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

We arrived at Chalet La Chouette to a very warm welcome late on Saturday night, Stuart came to collect us from the centre of Meribel just a few minutes after our transfer arrived. We met the other guests and were shown around the beautiful accommodation. We couldn't believe how well presented it was, with a luxurious living space & dining room and spacious bedrooms with stylish en-suites. Everything down to the smallest detail has been hand-chosen to afford a wonderful and comfortable stay. You really couldn't ask for more in a ski chalet.

The food was out of this world, lots of choice for breakfast and a delicious 3-course menu every evening followed by a cheese board, complimented by fine wine. In addition there were afternoon cakes and the most amazing canapes each day.

However the best thing about staying with Delicious Mountain has to be simply being looked after by Louise and Stuart, they are so flexible and accommodating and helped to arrange all of the details for each guest to ensure they got the most out of their stay, going out of their way to take guests out in the evening or pick them up from apres-ski bars, rearranging meal times to fit in with everyone, etc. And all with a smile on their faces.

Thanks for making our stay such a unique and enjoyable experience!

The number one choice in the resort

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

Having just returned from Chalet la Chouette, I recommend this chalet without reservation. Louise got up at 04:30 to meet me off the overnight train in Moutiers, drove me to their wonderfully appointed chalet for a gourmet breakfast before I hit the extensive Three Valley's slopes. The chalet is an easy walk from the lifts, but Stu drops you off and picks you up within five minutes of a phone call, so walking really isn't necessary - it is as good as 'ski-in, ski-out'. You can ski back to the chalet, but it needs decent snow cover and is off piste. But the two things that really make this the place to stay are the 'nothing is too much trouble' attitude of the hosts, Lou and Stu, and the fantastic food, as mentioned by others. Quite simply the best food I've had in a catered chalet, with nothing too much trouble - gluten free, vegitarian, special requests, we had them all and Louise catered without a bat of an eye.

The rooms are comfortable and airy, all en suite and all well appointed. There is a sauna (which I didn't try but others in my party said was very good), a 'cinema/games room' which could be well used by children while their parents were enjoying the after ski drinks and canapes.

All in all, an excellent find in Meribel, should be the number one choice in the resort

The best accommodation and pampering that we have ever had

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

We have recently returned from a ski trip with Eagle Ski Club where we were fortunate to have stayed at Chalet La Chouette with Delicious Mountain. If you are thinking of booking to stay here stop thinking and just do it - it is the best accommodation and pampering that we have ever had after several decades of regular skiing. Lou and Stu went out of their way to look after their guests with 5 star customer service throughout. Nothing seemed too much trouble: chauffering to and from the slopes, recommending and booking a boot fitter to resolve a toe problem and organising ski servicing. The food was truely superb, the wine of high quality and the master bedroom stupendous! Even packed lunches and aperitifs were included:-)!
Very many thanks, Avril and Pete

You couldn't hope for a higher standard of cuisine

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

Chalet La Chouette is built to a high standard and is very comfortable indeed with a basement sauna to ease the strains of a hard day's skiing. Lou and Stu are perfect hosts and you couldn't hope for a higher standard of cuisine. Although it is situated a little away from the main lift system, the chalet is an easy 10 minute walk to Meribel centre. Transport to and from the lift system is provided but it is entirely possible for reasonable skiers to ski back to the chalet if the snow cover is adequate. This is a great place to stay in one of France's most extensive skiing areas.

The name lives up to expectations

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

Lou and Stu are wonderful hosts and the name lives up to expectations with simply delicious food each day along with their total commitment to service combined with a very friendly approach, and just ensuring we all had a good time. The bedrooms were roomy and with excellent en suite facilities as well as a sauna to help melt the day's aches away. I honestly cant find any fault and although the chalet isn't right on the piste the transport each day provided by Stu takes literally a few minutes.

Great hospitality ... Highly Recommended

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

The chalet is of a very high standard and whilst a little way from the ski lifts, Stu & Lou go out of their way to ensure there is transport available to travel to and from the slopes. The food is just exceptional and truly "delicious" with a standard that would grace an excellent restaurant. Great hospitality and a lot of effort to ensure all the logistics work well with ski passes organised and useful tips on kit etc. Highly recommended.

An unbelievably positive experience

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

Chalet La Chouette has a variety of bedrooms of high quality with ensuite facilities and a sauna in the basement, but the outstanding part of a week's stay there is the truly delicious food (what an apt name for the company) at all times, including great vegetarian dishes, and the unstinting helpfulness of Lou and Stu who really go out of their way to meet everyone's needs and wishes. Transport to and from the snow meant no lugging of skis even for the 10 minute walk. I was one of 15 people staying and everyone sang the praises of Lou and Stu. The week was an unbelievably positive experience.

None were better than Delicious Mountain

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

I have just returned from a fabulous week in Meribel with Stu and Lousie at their Delicious Mountain Chalet. The Chalet is very well located withing easy walking distance of the centre of Meribel, but Stu gladly transported us to and from the lifts every day so there was no walking in ski boots or carrying of skis. The rooms are really comfortable with everything provided, and the food is fabulous. I have stayed in other chalets in Meribel over the last 15 years including with companies that consider themselves to be 'a cut above the rest' but none were better than Delicious Mountain. Stu and Lou did absolutely everything they could to make our stay pleasureable and nothing was too much trouble. I would highly recommend this chalet to friends, families and solos.

Way above the normal Chalet experience

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

We spent the first week of the 2013-14 season skiing in Meribel and had a wonderful stay with Louise and Stuart in Chalet La Chouette. Stuart met us at Moutiers station and took us directly to the Chalet. The Chalet is excellent with good sized en suite rooms with great views and a sauna if required. All of the Staff at Delicious Mountain are extremely hospitable and go out of their way to see to your every need. The food and wine were superb and the quality was way above the normal Chalet experience. Transfers by Landrover, to and from the lifts are available at anytime and Meribel Centre is only a 10 minute walk away. I would have no hesitation in recommending Delicious Mountain, whether you are going alone or as a group of family or friends, we will definitely be back.

Semana inesquecivel...

TripAdvisor Review of Delicious Mountain Chalet Holidays, Meribel

Já somos velhos frequentadores dos Alpes Franceses e ficamos pela primeira vez em um Chalet. Não nos arrependemos pois o chalet é maravilhoso com um atendimento Ingles. Preciso e confiavel. Comida saborosa e bem diversificada, bebidas de boa qualidade. Quartos espaçosos e aconchegantes. A recepção de Lou e Stu foi maravilhosa o carinho de Cris e Christ no cafe da manha energizante. A unica ressalva é o chalet não ser ski-in ski-out, mas nada que a Land Rover do Stu não resolva.O chalet esta a apenas 10 minutos a pé da saida dos principais Lifts, trajeto que tambem pode ser feito de onibus gratuito. Recomendo e pretendo voltar.
