Booked via Ski Total website which was easy. Chalet needs an update as there is no wi-fi (as advertised in brochure), no music (could do with a radio plus iPod dock), general lack of storage for clothes and just a small old TV with DVD player. Get the impression the owner does not want to spend money on bringing the chalet up to a higher standard! On the positive side, the hosts, Ben and Alex were excellent and could not try to do more to make their guests feel at home and help them enjoy their stay. The quality of the cooking was high but the wines were cheap and tending to high acidity. A good 20 minute walk to the nearest lifts (Chaudanne) but a minibus shuttle service in the morning and late afternoon helps a lot - particularly look out for the driver guy who is a really helpful character as long as you show your appreciation and chat to him in a friendly way. A Spar shop approx 5 mins walk up the road if you need to buy anything. Plenty of nightlife in Meribel but tends to be expensive for what it is. Dicks T bar just 5 mins walk up from the chalet but other nightlife is a 10 to 15 minute walk away.
