Breakfast is a relaxed affair; the children have ski school at 09:00 but no matter… it’s 08:40 and you readily accept the offer of one more steaming cup of coffee. You’re in no rush. Ten minutes later you’re in the ski room and the chalet host is helping you into your toasty warm ski boots, stocking the children up with ski snacks for the day. You step out of the ski room and walk the few meters to a parting in the trees where you find your skis are already laid out, waiting for you. You click into them and you’re off.
Few chalets in Méribel or in fact anywhere in the Alps boast such a wonderful location as Trois Ours. Accessed by the exclusive Rue des Chalets and discreetly hidden from view by carefully planted Alpine spruces. Yet part the branches and you will find yourself directly on the Blue Doron piste, a 2-minute gentle ski down to the Chaudanne lifts, ski school and resort centre. To be a guest at Trois Ours is to truly live the ski-in, ski-out dream, and we promise it’s everything you always thought it would be.
A holiday here will be remembered for a lifetime – and for all the right reasons. You will recall pulling up at the chalet, your chauffeur leading you down the heated pathway to the front door where you were greeted with a glass of chilled Laurent Perrier champagne. The holiday has begun, as the chalet team discretely smuggles your luggage from the vehicle into your bedroom, while you sit back by the roaring log fire to take in your surroundings. You will cherish the memory of that afternoon you headed back to the chalet early to sit in the Jacuzzi, eyes closed and taking in the sounds and smells of the Alpine ambiance. The day your private ski guide joined you for breakfast and laid out the day’s plans to make the most of the fresh snowfall overnight.
Chalet Trois Ours gives each of you what you desire most; space to relax, read a book, steam in the hamam, take it up a notch in the gym or catch a film in the cinema room. Fancy heading out to enjoy the live après music at the Rond Point? It’s a ten minute walk – but it’s uphill so you call on the services of the chalet’s luxury minivan and your own chauffeur. The music’s finished (for now!), so you are collected once more and whisked downhill to the resort centre to meander around the shops, a spot of retail therapy. The space and facilities are yours to use as you choose and with the pistes on your doorstep you can be sure you won’t waste a single precious moment of your holiday.
For the gourmands amongst you the dining experience at Trois Ours will rightly impress. In full prior consultation your talented private chef will create culinary delights to your particular pallet. From a freshly baked cake each afternoon, to delightful pre-dinner delicacies and handmade chocolates to round the night off. The main event is in your hands; be it four courses of fine dining with a local cheese course, or simple family favourites and Savoyard specialties. You can vary this as you wish; dining is the key to an extra-ordinary holiday and the talented team will ensure this is one of the highlights of your visit to Chalet Trois Ours. A fine selection of French wines is provided by the chalet’s sommelier, perfectly matched each evening to compliment the cuisine.
Once you have experienced the rapture of Chalet Trois Ours it will be a challenge to top it for next year; a long quest awaits in the pursuit. Or you can quietly re-book and begin looking forward to next year’s visit.

"Thank you very much for building Trois Ours into this splendid chalet. We had a wonderful week with lots of skiing, fun and excellent food. We will be reminded of this very special family trip for a long time to come."
“Tucked away off the exclusive ‘Route des Chalets’, Trois Ours is the essence of Alpine chic with gorgeous wood-panelled rooms, roaring open fires, large south-facing balconies overlooking the pistes and an outdoor hot tub next to a stream. The secluded ski-in/ski-out chalet works the traditional look but adds a sprinkling of modern luxury with a private cinema, gym and steam room, making it a desirable spot in which to recharge your batteries.”
“The five bedroom Chalet Trois Ours in Meribel is one of the best ‘ski in / ski out’ chalets around and provides an intimate, quiet and blissful home that feels close to nature – whilst also being highly modern. The perfect chalet for those who are so passionate about skiing they want to be able to be on the slopes the instance they leave the lodge.”
“Five star chalet – Chalet Trois Ours situated right on the piste has incredible views and really is fit for a prince or princess.”
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? A cooked breakfast is served every morning of your stay. 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.
The chalet provides an open bar of beer, soft drinks, wines and mixers.
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.
