This 1 bedroom apartment with a wonderful view of the Meribel Valley is on the top floor of the Residence Les Cembros just in front of the Table Vert chair-lift in Meribel Mottaret. The apartment suits either a family or a group of friends with immediate access to ski from the building and some good slopes for sledging which is perfect for children after skiing. The apartment labeled 3 * consists of a living/dining room, 1 master bedroom, 1 storage room on the attic, open equipped kitchen, 2 full bathrooms. The living/dining room has a sofa bed (1.40m x 1.90m), TV, Hi-FI, a dining table for up to 6. On the bedroom you will find a full bed (1.40m x 1.90m) a storage space and the master bathroom. Own ski locker. Shops, bars & restaurants are at walking distance. There is a free shuttle bus service to Meribel (8h30 -23h30
I stayed here for 2 weeks in March. The apartment is very nice and very comfortable. The ski locker is conveniently located right inside the entrance to the building.
The location is superb. It is right on the slopes and so perfectly placed for you to take the Table Verte lift or ski down Furet to the other Mottaret lifts. It is located at the top end of Mottaret which is a little quieter than lower part but there is a telecabine to link the two and its a short walk anyway. There is a bus to link Mottaret with the main centre of Meribel.
There is a supermarket a couple of buildings along and an excellent ski hire place next door (Arolles). There are also a few bars + restaurants in the adjacent buildings.One of the bars has a happy hour of 4pm-6pm and the other a happy hour of 6pm-7pm which works out well! There is also wi-fi at one of them (Bar Le Hameau)
In terms of choosing a place within the Trois Vallees, Mottaret is my personal preference as it is one of the best locations from which to explore the rest of the resort, There is easy access to Courchevel (via Pac de Lac lift in Mottaret), Les Menuires (via Plattieres) and Val Thorens (Cote Brune). I stayed in Les Menuires before and found it a little to far to allow much time for skiing in Courchevel.
When we first read the reviews of this property we felt that they were just too good to be true, but having now stayed here for a week, we know them to be correct.
The apartment is delightful; clean, tidy, warm and very well-equipped. We were only two, so had a bathroom each, (sheer luxury after a hectic day on the slopes), but the whole place felt very roomy and comfortable. To be able to ski right to the door is a blessing and with a ski-lift just across the piste, well, what more could you ask for.
Thanks are due to the owners for sharing this lovely place with us.
We stayed in this apartment for 3 weeks and it delivered on all fronts. The acommodation provided ski in/ski out close to shops and the local transport. It is well appointed and very comfortable. It has great views of the Meribel valley from all rooms.
The apartment was clean and well presented when we arrived and during our stay it was warm and comfortable and a pleasure to return to after a long day skiing.
It was very easy dealing with the owners, especially as we are located in Australia.
We would definitely look to book this apartment as our first choice on our next visit to Mottaret.
It was our second time in Mottaret, but first time in this apartment. We really enjoyed the stay. The apartment is well-equipped, nice and clean. We were just two so there was a lot of space. And two bathrooms! We selected the apartment because it was newly renovated and we were not disappointed. The house is located right at the slopes so it is very convenient. It was also convenient to buy food at the local shop. The view of the Alps through the windows is stunning.
If you want to rent skis or snow boards you can find a number of small shops in the neighbourhood. The one we started at was unfortunately more interested in our money than in finding suitable equipment. But we easily found another better shop. Later that week we got a recommendation to rent equipment at the hotel shop in the same building (Arolles). They seem to have good equipment and we will check with them next time.
Our view is that Mottaret is the optimal place in Trois Vallees. Every slope is withon easy reach!
The owner of the apartment responded very well and promptly to every communication. The only improvement we could think of is to have at least one English-speaking channel on the TV.
We can really recommend this nice apartment and we would be happy to come back.
We came across this desirable chic apartment by chance after searching tirelessly for accommodation in the Meribel Mottaret region. It was precisely what we were looking for and more, to the point we were a bit sceptical thinking it was too good to be true. Needless to say, we arrived at our apartment in February 2012 with high expectations, and it delivered!
From the moment we entered the apartment we were taken aback by the breathtaking scenery of the expansive Meribel valley below, a feeling that was never lost for the entirety of our stay. It was a quaint dwelling but very comfortable for 2 people, and would certainly accommodate 4 or 5.
Beginning each day, it?s a 2 minute stroll along the slopes to purchase freshly baked baguettes and croissants from the local supermarket which stocks all the essential supplies you would require for the week. For the avid skiers, there is no time wasted between retrieving your skis from your personal locker to exploring the 3 valleys, as the apartment complex backs onto the Furet run and the Table Verte chairlift. Conveniently, if you need to hire skis, or one simply forgot to pack your ski goggles, there is a well-equipped hire/purchase ski shop downstairs.
At the end of each day you will find a number of restaurants and bars located nearby, but for those of you looking for a bustling apre-ski culture, this venue is perhaps not your first location of choice, as the nightlife it much more quiet and subdued.
We were looking for that idyllic snow retreat that was secluded, relaxed, had stunning views and conveniently located, all without that exorbitant price tag. We can confidently say that this apartment was the perfect place for us, perfectly priced and perfectly located.
This is the third year in a row we have stayed in this apartment - must be good! It is perfect for our family - we have children of 6 and 9 who love to ski here - as it is quick to get on the slopes and we can explore the three valleys while they are in ski school. In the late afternoon (after 5 or 6) we can also go tobogganing on the slope opposite the apartment or down in Mottaret on the beginners slope. The apartment is cosy, clean and comfortable and has been well refurbished. We usually eat out at lunch time and then have a light dinner in the evening, but there are a few restaurants at Le Hameau if you want to go out. There is a supermarket (8 a 8) only a short distance away which also sells pizzas, cooked chickens, ready to cook lasagnes etc. There is a bubble lift down to Mottaret centre where there are a few more shops and restaurants which works until about 7.30 at night and there are free buses to Meribel. The owner is also very helpful and easy to talk to.
Meribel Mottaret (on the top of Meribel Valley) is situated in the middle of the Three Valleys, the world's largest interlinked skiing area. You will enjoy from more than 600 km of pistes,150 km only in the Meribel area. Meribel Mottaret is not only for skiers, it offers a variety of option for non-skiers also.
