We returned to Chalet Bartavelle this February after two years. Our first time there had been fantastic and this time they did it again! Jerry and Bettina are wonderful guests and provide the best skiing holiday ever. Their organisation is impeccable, right from the moment you contact them, Meribel is a wonderful ski resort with very happy and friendly ski schools and Jerry drives you and collects you from the slopes every day. As for the food, it is to die for! Breakfast is fabulous, tea with amazing homemade cakes and cookies and then a wonderful 4 course dinner. Both teenagers and adults loved it and cannot wait to go back. Chapeaux!

This was our second stay at Chalet Bartavelle and we were not disappointed.

Once again we found Jerry and Bettina to be conscientious, friendly and welcoming hosts who spared no attention to detail to make our experience a thoroughly enjoyable one.

The food was wonderful – a real treat, we ate like Kings and Queens both the children and adults alike!

The bathrooms have undergone a renovation since our last visit and compliment the already tastefully decorated and furnished interior well.

Highly recommended for any parties (we travelled as 2 families but would certainly return as adults only). We certainly felt we got tremendous value for money in terms of accommodation and location and would say do not hesitate to book this chalet for a memorable holiday in the snow.

Chalet Bartavelle is a delight in every way. It is wonderfully comfy, cosy and quiet... the perfect Alpine hideaway! Jerry & Bettina are not only the perfect hosts, they are lovely people to be around... so hospitable, helpful and friendly, either inconspicuous in the background, or right there when you need them. Just the right balance. Jerry's culinary art - wow! His food is to die for... honestly, it has to be experienced to be believed! We had the best skiing trip we have ever had, and can't wait to go back! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Chalet Bartavelle to others, in fact, we already have! A MUST stay.

“A new level of convenience, comfort and cuisine all under one roof at Chalet Bartavelle”

Just when we thought we had experiencd it all with regard to lodgings in a ski resort in the Alps, we found Chalet Bartavelle run by Jerry and Bettina Mant! The chalet which is in a quiet hamlet below Meribel is the right size for 2 families or 4 couples and is comfortable and warm with plenty of very hot water and a bath and two showers. Any problems regarding ski and boot hire, lessons on the slopes or travel will be ironed out by the efficient Bettina, while the charming Jerry not only drives you to the lifts and back every day, but also provides a 5 star dinner every night (superb) as well as home baked cakes and biscuits for tea and a delicious and varied breakfast. Our best all-round skiing experience so far.....why would we ever look further.

“Exceptional White Xmas”

Our family of 9 found Chalet Bartavelle on Tripadvisor and we can testify to all the very generous reports. The chalet is very professionally run from the time you start arranging your trip with Bettina - she answered hundreds of questions and arranged all transfers, in house massages, hair appointments, ski equipement delivery to your door, ski passes and ski lockers at the ski lift. Plus the big bags to carry all the equipement there - no detail was forgotten to make our trip as easy as possible. The chalet is a 10 minute car drive outside Meribel and we were delivered and collected daily. The bus was very easy to catch if you wanted to return early. The Chalet always was well heated with a big roaring fire and the very kind Jerry was ready and waiting with tea and freshly made biscuits and cake every afternoon. The dinners Jerry out did himself nightly - his food was outstanding and very large portions - even the younger teenagers ate everything with not a Frensh fry in sight! Our xmas lunch was very special and typically English and we got to eat Jerry's Mum's homemade Xmas pudding - well hang up your gloves as she takes 1st prize- simply amazing with Jerry's homemade brandy butter - infact Jerry is a whizz - he makes absolutley everything from scratch so be prepared for a feast. The village is beautifully quiet and peaceful and one can enjoy lovely walks around the village or on the little mountain paths with very beautiful views of the lite up Church below. For our family it was a magestic memorable holiday and we would without a doubt return not only for Jerry's cooking, Bettina's amazing organizational skills but for the skiing offered in Meribel - simply the best we have been to so far. (we have been in Saalbach twice, Chamonix and Lech).

A lovely chalet run by very professional, hospitable and friendly people. Bettina's organisational skills set us up for a great week, and Jerry's food is exceptional, better than any restaurant we have been to, let alone any chalet we have stayed in before!!! A fantastic week in a relaxed and cosy environment, with great skiing on the doorstep! Thank you so much Jerry & Bettina!

I have been skiing since 1976 and have stayed in all types of accommodation and many catered chalets over the years. I can honestly say this was the best. The owners, Jerry and Bettina are very welcoming hosts. Nothing is too much trouble and Jerry's cooking is exceptional, again, better than I have experienced in any other chalet with excellent wine and a proper cooked breakfast option every morning. The chalet itself is well appointed, cosy and comfortable with lots of nice touches. If you are worried about the location, don't be, Jerry is happy to run you up to the Chaudanne lift station in the mornings and there is a blue run back to the chalet. Alternatively, Jerry will collect you at the end of the day's skiing. Ski equipment and lift passes are delivered to the chalet and the equipment collected at the end of your stay. Exceptional value and highly recommend.
