You've Booked your Chalet Holiday!
A big thank you for booking with us. We'll look after everything from here on. We are very much looking forward to meeting you in person here in Meribel. Until then if you'd like to get to know us then come and meet us on our Facebook Page: we post regularly and will keep you up-to-date with the latest news and snow reports from the The Three Valleys. You can post up any questions you might have about Meribel, the snow conditions or anything else - we'd be glad to help!
What Happens Next with your Booking?
We'll get planning and arranging everything now. The next event for you would be 60 days before your holiday - this is when the balance payment would be due. We'll drop you a reminder email a week or so in advance.
In the meantime, you can use the below as a tick list for your own holiday planning. If you have any questions at any stage, please don't hesitate to contact us.
Book your Flights
If you haven't booked your flights already, we would recommend that you do so soon to get the best prices. The nearest airport is Chambery, but most people tend to opt for the more regular flights into Geneva, just over two hours from Meribel resort. The main provider of budget flights from the UK is EasyJet, but British Airways also offer regular flights from London Heathrow, along with one or two others.
It is also possible to drive to Meribel. The village is about 9 hours' drive from Calais and, if chosen carefully, the route will be all motorways until the final 30 minutes or so.
The final option is to travel by train. The best option is to get the Eurostar to Paris, then the TGV to Geneva (at lightning speed!). After a 15-minute train ride to the airport, you can take a transfer bus from Geneva Airport to Meribel. See below for details of transfer companies.
