Attractive chalet sleeping up to 12 in delightful hamlet of Le Raffort. Only 4 minutes walk from Olympic Gondola to centre of Meribel in heart of 3 valleys. Yet for nightlife loving teenagers only 15 minutes walk downhill too from Dick's nightclub. Wonderful open fire in large sitting room and can ski back for most of the season. The three valleys always has good accessible as well as challenging skiing even in poor natural snow conditions and has vast selection of wonderful mountain restaurants.
La Forge Review
We have just completed our one Christmas week ski vacation in La Forge and just wanted to provide some feedback.
Chalet la Forge was absolutely ideal in terms of location, facilities and homeliness for us to enjoy our Christmas ski vacation. With our group of 12, ranging from 7 years to 83 years, the Chalet quite comfortably accommodated us all without feeling cramped and we all felt entirely at home.
Location wise you get the benefit of an idyllic hamlet setting, but with the key facilities only a short walk away (bus stop, bubble lift, Martagnon Restaurant etc).
The Chalet is completely provided for in terms of facilities (cooking, laundry, bed linen etc) and the open fire is complete bonus, which adds great character and warmth to the house.
Ski conditions were pretty good even though it was still pretty early in the season. We enjoyed great ski conditions on all days with a fresh top up of snow every few days.
In summary, I strongly recommend Chalet La Forge to anyone who wishes to spend Christmas in Meribel/Le Raffort and would have no hesitation in returning there in the future.

Very good boulangerie Meribel Village for morning croissants, bread etc. Super U supermarket open on Sunday until 12 at outskirts of Moutiers on main road.
