Located above the Cospilot piste, in the Hameau de Bellecôte, chalet Margaux offers up to 12 guests (and two children) a stunning home from home with timeless cosy wooden and hand-painted interiors, spacious rooms and a tranquil indoor jacuzzi. Nestled in one of Europe's most exclusive ski resorts, this is the place to relax, take in the beautiful winter scenery and spend much-needed time with loved ones. With its cute wooden shutters and panelled exterior, large balconies and decorative stonework, this chalet is a picture-perfect example of a chocolate box-style skiing home.
The chalet boasts an enviable ski-in, ski-out position – perfect for those who don't want to trek around too much and want everything right at their front door. Located right beside the Cospilot piste, you and your party and come and go as you please in the heart of the action. That said, Margaux still has that exclusive feeling of complete privacy, tucked away behind trees in a secure gated community. Watch the sun go down in the evening and take in the views of the resort from the chalet's ornately carved wraparound balconies, offering up spectacular vistas and memories that will last a lifetime.
When you're not skiing, your party can enjoy all the comforts that Margaux has to offer. Snuggle down on the sofa in the spacious living room, in front of an open wood fire with those you love – the perfect way to end the day after a long session on the slopes. The large seating area (ideal for board and card games), snug and television room are all ideal spaces for entertaining little ones and a great way for the entire family to spend quality time together. Ease those aching muscles in the blissful bubbles of your own indoor private jacuzzi.
Relax mind, body and soul while sipping on a glass of champagne as you reminisce on the day's events.With six plush bedrooms, all featuring en-suite bathrooms with baths and showers, the entire family can rest, relax and come together in supreme comfort. Then there's the food – all prepared for you by your own private chef and in-house staff. However you do breakfast, begin the day with a delicious continental or English breakfast, as well as a range of cereals, yogurts and juices. After a long day, when you return to Margaux, your hosts will prepare canapés and champagne to allow you to unwind in true style before your four-course evening meal, using the freshest local ingredients and rounded off with freshly ground coffee, a digestif and home-made truffles.

No need to rush out of bed - breakfast is laid on. A healthy array of fresh fruit juices, a selection of warming teas and coffee - yoghurts, crispy cereals, juicy fruit and a mouth-watering display of delicious fresh breads & delicate pastries. Your chef will also prepare a daily cooked hot option for you - how do you like your eggs? So much choice that you might miss the first ski lift if you're not careful.
Come back after a wonderful day on the mountain to the warmth and comfort of your chalet. Snuggle up on the comfy sofa in front of a crackling fire, with a steaming cup of tea and a generous serving of cake – this is how all afternoons should be. Your chef will prepare a fresh from the oven, sweet treat for your return, so whether your preference is for a hearty sticky Apple and Ginger cake or a delicate Mille-feuille aux framboise is more your thing, there will be something tempting waiting for you. Personally I don’t think you can beat a slice of crispy baguette with lashings of butter and dollops of apricot jam or nutella - but maybe that ‘s just me - the perfect comfort food.
When staying in a catered chalet every night feels like a special occasion, and why shouldn't it, you're on an amazing holiday and it's so good to be alive. You’re dressed and ready for a glass of something chilled with friends and family, ready to regale them with tales of your mountain adventures that may get a little exaggerated for dramatic effect with each rendition. Enjoy the delicious canapés and amuse-bouche freshly prepared by your star in the kitchen.
Take a seat at your own private table - it's time for the main event – a delicious feast, masterfully crafted by your talented chef. With an emphasis on using hand-selected, fresh, local and seasonal ingredients you will be served a melt in your mouth three course dinner that wouldn't look out of place in a Michelin starred restaurant. Dinner is complimented by a tangy platter of divine local cheeses. Menus can be tailored to suit your tastes and your chef will be happy to prepare everything from a simple supper to fine dining delights. Dinner is served on six nights leaving you one night free to sample Meribel's restaurants.
The chalet provides an open bar of beer, wines, spirits and mixers. The chalet serves unlimited Veuve Cliquot or Tattinger Champagne.
The chalet is happy to cater for specific dietary requirements, and will serve an earlier high tea for children including on the chef night off. You can talk to your SkiBoutique PA about any specific requests from dietary requirements such as gluten free diets to birthday cakes and favourite dishes. We will do our very best to ensure that your wishes are granted and delivered in resort.
