AN ECOLOGICAL CHALET
Chalet KAWA is built of massive wood with all the latest technologies (canadian well/double flux ventilation system/water heat recovery/wood fibre insulation/automatic wood stove/triple layer glasses...) for a very low energy consumption. You won't find any concrete here and all paintings, varnish etc... have been selected with no or very low VOC (Volatil Organic Compounds). This, the massive wood and very little electric heating gives the chalet a unique and healthy atmosphere.
The chalet is said to be "passive" as it obtains a much better result at energy efficiency tests as even the best result (A)!
INTERACTION WITH GUESTS
Living on the ground floor of Chalet KAWA we will be available during your stay if you need anything regarding the chalet or for any matter. You can say we know the area pretty well so we would be happy to point out interesting things to do.
ACCESS TO THE SLOPES
We live in Le Cruet just above Les Allues which means you can't ski out of the chalet. But fear not, access to the slopes is as easy as a green run.
First option is to take the free shuttle to Meribel (where all the slopes start). The bus stop is literraly in front of the house (20m) and it will take you to the slopes in about 10min.
Second option is to drive down to Les Allues (2min) and take the gondolas up to Meribel (there is a big parking).
Lastly you can always drive directly next to the slopes (many different parkings).
Skiing back to the chalet is possible if enough snow using the easy and authentic Les Allues ski run.
We have a ski room with boot heaters in the chalet but if you don't like carrying your kit you can always rent a locker in Meribel where you can leave everything.
Being on the main road access is easy by car (we have 3 private parking space).
10 min away on foot from Les Allues village (it has a grocery, restaurants and bars)
5 min by car from Meribel centre
15 min by car from Moutiers
