Overview

Do you Believe in Magic?

Suitcase packed, passport, wallet – check and you’re off to the airport! On board the flight you realise you’ve left your GHD’s at home. Disaster! Oh, but wait – you’re staying at Chalet Chopine, one of Méribel’s most sought after chalets in the exclusive Dou du Pont enclave. A little thing like providing hair straighteners will pose no challenge. You pop your SkiBoutique PA an email using the on board WiFi. Isn’t technology incredible these days?

Your chauffeur driven Mercedes Viano pulls up at the entrance to the private road and the driver taps in the code. As you wait for the barrier to rise you take in your surroundings. You’ve just passed through the centre of Méribel, passed the shops and bars and the Chaudanne lift station – and here you are, right in the centre and yet about to be spirited away in the remarkable, private seclusion of Dou du Pont. Most of these properties must be private. Who owns the big chalet you see peeking out of the trees to the left you wonder? The barrier rises and snaps you out of this reverie – onwards to Chalet Chopine.

Lavish springs to mind as you enter Chopine, so much style and elegance all wrapped up into an utterly cozy, family-sized chalet. It’s no party palace, just a genuine chocolate box of a ski chalet in the perfect spot, and with all the toys guaranteed to hit the spot for the whole group. Including a shiny set of GHD hair straighteners lying waiting for you in your sumptuously furnished en-suite bedroom. Perfect.    

You are offered a glass of Perrier Jouet champagne, perfectly chilled, as your chalet manager welcomes you before the crackling log fire, but you find your eyes wandering to the window and the twinkling white stuff outside. You’re thinking about the endless skiing on your doorstep; perfectly in the centre of les Trois Vallées – that’s one of the reasons you chose it after all – and you can’t wait to hit the slopes for first lift in the morning. Right on cue the ski technicians arrive with a selection of kit in your size ready for your in-chalet ski fitting!

The next morning you breakfast like kings ready for a big first day on the mountain – and there’s absolutely no rush. You’re only a minute’s chauffeured drive to the main lift station which will whisk you left up the valley to Courchevel, or right up to Méribel Mottaret and on to the charming St Martin de Belleville – or to Val Thorens perhaps? No St Martin first – you need your first annual ‘hit’ of Jerusalem, your favourite ski run. 

After a big day’s skiing – and a couple of glasses of après fizz at the new Folie Douce in Méribel – you’re ready for some relaxation and pampering. Chopine’s spa is delightful; both sauna and hamam are there if you choose, but the Jacuzzi really hits the spot with great views and a floating remote so you can control the music. Very rock and roll! While you relax and let the powerful jets work their magic on your aching ski legs the kids are watching another movie before dinner – the cinema’s a blessing and you’ve hardly seen them anywhere else in the chalet since arriving! 

Dinner is the highlight of every evening as your accomplished private chef dazzles you with his skill in the kitchen, producing dish after dish of incredible food for the whole family’s palate – and you thought you were fussy eaters! The whole staff team goes the extra mile for you, ensuring you will be taking home tails of your grand adventures and exploits in the Alps, longing to return. The lasting memory for you will definitely be that wine tasting arranged for you one evening, with fabulous Savoyard wines and some really special vintages – and chef’s heavenly canapés. You feel very special, totally relaxed and indulged, just as it should be. Do you really have to go home??

Reviews

FROM THE PRESS

“Chopine has a spectacular situation in the very exclusive Dou du Pont quarter, just above Chaudanne, the main base station area. It is not strictly speaking "ski-in, ski-out", but there is an off-piste route and it's a one-minute journey by chalet minibus. It has a wonderful south-facing terrace with glorious valley views.”

The Telegraph

“Picture a quintessential chocolate-box chalet and it would be Chopine. Lashings of wood, acres of fur, tons of cosy nooks and a jacuzzi (obvs). Brits love staying here -it's nicely understated and not too 'blingy', tucked away in the exclusive Dou du Pont. The town centre is just a five-minute walk away and the Chaudanne lifts mere seconds (thanks to your personal chauffeur).”

Tatler Magazine - February 2017 

WHAT WE THINK

This is a comfortable, cosy chalet that is perfect for a family ski holiday. It is one of the few chalets on the west slopes of the resort so has lovely views of the resort and is in a beautifully quiet and secluded enclave. The fact that it’s only a hop & a jump from the Chaudanne lift area just adds to its appeal.

Gastronome

Do you love food? I don't know many people that don't - there is something wonderfully comforting and indulgent about having somebody else take control of the kitchen. But when that person is a talented chef with hands-on experience of high end restaurants, you know you’re in for a mouth-watering treat. We hand-pick our chalet partners for their beautiful properties, stand out service and their dedication to gastronomy. Here’s a taste of what you can expect when staying in one of our catered ski chalets: 

A perfect start to the day

No need to rush out of bed - tea or coffee will be brought to you. Then on to breakfast - 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? Full breakfast is served daily. So much choice that you might miss the first ski lift if you're not careful. 

 

High tea temptations

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.

 

Celebrate with Canapés 

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. 

 

Serving up a sensuous feast

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 6 nights giving you chance to explore and experience local restaurants.

 

Let the good times flow 

The chalet provides an open bar of beer, carefully selected chateau bottled wines, spirits and mixers. The chalet can offer an a la carte wine list if you would like to upgrade. Perrier Jouet Champagne is available at all times.

 

Children & dietary requirements 

The chalet is happy to cater for specific dietary requirements, and will serve an earlier high tea for children. 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.
