From start to finish our stay here was great, the place was a very short distance from ski lift that we were dropped off at on a morning and picked up when we were ready, perfectly clean and homely, Jill the manager was more than helpful with Everything and our chalet hosts luke and Ellie couldn’t of been nicer, really lovely people and fantastic cooks with homemade cakes every afternoon and an À la cart menu every evening, great company too! would definitely recommend this place!
I can’t recommend this property enough, from start to finish it was fantastic! Luke & Ellie was AMAZING they couldnt do enough for us. There hospitality and cooking was 5*.Great location. Please don’t hesitate on staying here if you are visiting Meribel. Jill (manager) was very nice & helpful.
We have been to meribel once before but stayed at the hotel Savoy. This is our first time staying in a catered chalet, and we must admit this experience was one of a kind and definitely a MUST-REPEAT for the next season!
Our group consisted of 4 couples and we were only able to book for 5days, opposed to the Saturday - Saturday ski week offered by almost every chalet company. However, upon booking Alpine Ethos was very forthcoming and allowed us this flexible booking right away.
The chalet is very spacious, making a stay with 8people feel less cramped, very well furnished giving an immediate home from home feeling, the outdoor jacuzzi had an absolutely breathtaking view, a good sized room for all your ski equipment and the chalet's location was only a 5min drive from the main lifts at chaudanne!
Now to the most important bit of this review, the main reason why this stay has turned out to be the best so far:
We were greeted by Luke and Ellie, two extremely kind, welcoming, sociable, yet professional people who looked after us for the entire stay. They have actually looked after us better than I would after my own husband!
In the morning they would cook us a fully loaded English breakfast while infotaining us about literally anything, after that they would look after the cleaning, which we did not really expect and which really gave us the perfect 'hotel-feeling'.
They would then drop us off at the ski lifts with all our gear.
As we are mostly ski-beginners, Luke and Ellie went beyond their duties and joined us on the slopes to act as our "tour guide/ski teacher". Honestly, without their help, some of our group might still be up there.
Upon our return from the slopes in the afternoon, there would always be a freshly baked cake/brownies + bread and spreads awaitings us - all at Costa coffee quality or better.
Around 6.30pm they would create the most delicious 4course dinners you would normally only get in AA rosetted restaurants, plus unlimited drinks/wine/beer. And every single time, Luke and Ellie would make sure that no dirty plate or cutlery is left behind, and no water or wine glass left empty.
And the cherie on the top, after the dinner cleaning, way out of their usual hours, they would stay on with us and join our quizzes and games.
All in all, it was Luke and Ellie who have made our ski trip unforgettable and unique, and we can only highly recommend to anyone visiting Meribel, not to miss the opportunity to book this chalet with Alpine Ethos.
If I win the lottery I would definitely rebook a few times per season and then take Luke and Ellie home with us :)
Cheers guys! You are wonderful!!
Had a fantastic time staying at the Chalet. The food was excellent and the hosts, Luke and Ellie, went out their way to make the holiday one to remember. Location is great too!
Wonderful place to stay in the perfect location. Luke and Ellie cooked delightful food and looked after us very well.
La Petite Chapelle is a beautifully appointed chalet within easy walking distance to Meribel centre where there are plenty of bars, shops & restaurants. The local bus service stops about 50m away, however Alpine Ethos offers a van service to & from the slopes making life so easy.
From the hot tub, socialising area & master bedroom there are fantastic views over the mountains making chilling with our aperitif & canapés very special.
Ellie & Luke were perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble & they did everything with a smile, Their meals were superb & they were quite willing to tweak menus if necessary.
Thank you so much Jill, Ellie & Luke for making our time in Meribel so memorable
This was definitely one of the very best holidays, thanks to our incredible hosts Luke & Allie. The two of them were so courteous, professional and accommodating that it made our trip. Jill was also amazing, ensuring we all got picked up and dropped off at the slopes in a timely manner whenever it suited us. Honestly, it is so hard to come across such amazing service and people. We all thank you. Gautam & Mini.
