Sumptuously and tastefully furnished, with excellent facilities, it is conveniently located for the skiing yet is in a secluded location - arguably the most sought after position within the ultra discreet Méribel Village.
Despite its very private location, Chalet Foinsbois is just a two minute stroll from the fast ‘Golf’ chair lift providing quick access to the Altiport sector and to the slopes of Méribel, Courchevel and Val Thorens. It’s also possible to ski back to the chalet, a feature you will appreciate after an exhilarating and tiring day on the slopes. Alternatively, the chalet is a five minute drive in your chauffeured vehicle to the lively heart of Méribel, a charming ski resort with bags of character.
The chalet itself is a real treasure. The focal point of Chalet Foinsbois is undoubtedly the stunning main reception room, whose ample space cleverly houses a central fireplace, library, sitting room, TV corner and cosy dining area. The whole property is decorated with glorious natural materials, reclaimed wooden beams and stunning stonework. On the lower ground floor level you will find the luxury quarter - there you can enjoy all manner of five star facilities, including a sauna, games room, gym, cinema room. You even have the hot tub which is formed out of beautiful old stone a great place to soothe the fatigue of a great day’s ski-ing.

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.
