Overview

Hideout for a snowy owl

Chalet La Chouette is one of those spectacular buildings you would rarely find elsewhere than in the mountains. Cut into the hillside, it hugs the landscape like a loving child. A mature child, fully grown, as Chalet Chouette, with its seven bedrooms, is huge. From each of its four floors there are mind-expanding views over the valley and balconies bathed in sunshine (when it’s not snowing on them, of course).


The main front door opens onto a proper entrance hall and then on into spacious living areas. You are really in an alpine chalet, walls and ceilings mellow with timber panelling and wide windows celebrating a landscape of mountains and forests. There are areas for relaxation focussed on a large open fireplace with space for the party to spread out. The dining area and the kitchen flow from the living room so that they have a civilised feeling of separation. The chalet chef and staff can work magic and create beauty as they prepare the evening’s culinary delights and set the long table. Especially useful if your party includes a group of mini skiers, there is a TV room where, even if they are not actually watching TV, they can indulge in the fun and fantasy enjoyed by children when they get together.

There is a master bedroom under the peak of the eaves, it is a generously proportioned space with a large bathroom. The others are all doubles or twins and all en-suite – one has a private bathroom across a landing. As well as all these bathrooms, a chalet of this comfort would be ill-equipped without a sauna and, from the sauna, it’s a skip through the icy air and into the outdoor hot tub. It might be hard to leave its bubbling water from which you can gaze down into the valley or up over the mountains to the deep velvet alpine sky, but there is a chance that dinner might be the summons you need.

You don’t want to miss the aperitif after which dinner will be an indulgent affair, on five nights of your stay, with exquisitely crafted menus to tantalise tastebuds and fuel nutritional needs. The next day will begin with morning tea, coffee or hot chocolate, brought to your room if you so desire. Breakfast will be lavish, assuming you make it by 09.30, after which there is a continental breakfast for those who have lain in.

La Chouette is located up a quiet road about ten minutes’ walk from the centre of the resort. It has parking and there is a stop for the free resort bus 180m away. Your journeys to and from the lift stations are graciously facilitated, however, by your on-call resort driver. Chalet la Chouette might have been named after the owls that look after the forests at night but there is another translation of Chouette that we believe suits this charming chalet. Popularly, it has been the word for a sort of elegance and attractiveness. It fits.

Reviews

WHAT WE THINK

A lovely chalet in a quiet cul-de-sac with beautiful views across the Meribel Valley. The TV room and outdoor hot tub ensure relaxed evenings after a day's skiing. All the seven bedrooms are en-suite and the chalet is perfect for a larger group or several families.

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 - 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. Breakfast is served daily.

 

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 accompanied by carefully selected wines. 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 & canapés are served on 6 nights of your stay.

 

Let the good times flow 

The chalet provides an open bar of beer, wines, spirits and mixers. 

 

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.
