About Mary Lowings

We love the mountains,they lift your soil.

We enjoy summer & winter and never get tired of The 3 Valleys ski terrain and keeo finding plaes w haven;'t seen before, even though we have skied there for over 20 years . Plus it is a fabulous area in the gorgeous summer months.

We live in Berkshire in the UK but try and be in Méribel as many times as we can.

Mary Lowings purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Mary Lowings chose Meribel

We discovered Les Allues in The Meribel Valley by accident and immediately fell in love with this traditional French village just 10 minutes from the centre of Meribel. The apartment is twice the size for the same money as those in Meribel centre, so really spacious, comfortable and homely. The village has a friendly village ambiance and is quieter than the centre of Meribel. A real hidden gem of Les Trois Vallées

What makes this apartment unique

Uninterrupted fabulous mountain views. Traditional & picturesque village in the centre of huge & exciting Les Trois Vallees.

Fantastic base for our ski trip

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the apartment in Les Allues was brilliant. Its location was perfect for our ski holiday - close enough to the lifts, but nice and peaceful to come back and relax at the end of the day. Mary was really helpful, she answered all of our questions and checked in with us when we arrived to make sure everything was okay. The apartment is very well equipped with everything that you would need and the views of the village below were stunning. We had a really great holiday and are really happy that we stumbled across this apartment.

Owner's Response: What a super week you had :-)) .I am delighted you enjoyed your stay and were comfortable in 16 Chalet Burgin and had a good week skiing. The good news is, it is still very good, over 2m snow on the tops and good all the way down to the lower slopes.The 3 Valleys will remain great for skiing until the very end of April, right to the end of the season. If you wish to come back early to mid April, do; it will still be great and enjoy the snow before it disappears for another 9 months! I hope to be able to welcome you again ( summer or winter) for repeat guests I give 5% discount. Cordialement Mary

great customer service

  • 4 of 5

“We booked a weeks holiday in this lovely looking apartment for February half term , but unfortunately due to a change in circumstances we had to cancel. I cannot thank Mary enough for her understanding of the situation and excellent communication whilst trying to sort things out for us. Although we never got to visit this time , the apartment looked lovely and the customer service was excellent, so maybe next year”

Winter resort with summer feeling

  • 5 of 5

Excellent accommodation with even better views. Dining on the balcony, overlooking the town and the valley was a particular highlight. Short walk to the local store to pick up pre-ordered croissants. Accommodation all on one floor with plenty of space. It was clean, well maintained and Mary contacted us when we arrived to check all was in order. Highly recommended. Some sensational walks to various "Refuges", which were more like mountain hotels but in splendid isolation. Crowd free rides on chairlifts, gondolas and cable cars with spectacular views and walks up there. A one day lift pass for the 3-valleys at 17 euros was excellent value. Start early to get full value as there is so much to do. A day trip to Pralognan is worthwhile. A winter resort with a summer life.

Owner's Response: Great that you explored a good part of the area and discovered some remote places. Pralognon is one of my most favorite areas to visit on a clear day......but then just sitting on the balcony with that view is a really relaxing way to pass the time too. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay

Perfect accommodation

  • 5 of 5

From booking to departure Mary was very helpful and answered all our questions. The accommodation was perfect for our family of 5, but would suit 6 very comfortably, having a lovely spacious area with a real open plan feel. There are stunning views from the south facing balcony, which can be a real suntrap. Having two bathrooms is a bonus and adds to the feel of this luxury apartment, which is in excellent condition and all the extras such as books and games make it home from home. It is not far to the bubble and the bars in Les Allues are friendly for that après ski beer / kir.

Recommended for: Families of up to six people

Owner's Response: I am delighted you like the apartment so much. Thank you for booking your next ski holiday there as well. We have fantastic snow in The Méribel Valley now and the skiing is superb. The lift company has made a magnificent job of grooming the pistes after such heavy snow falls this week. I wish you a very good holiday Best regards, Mary

a very nice apartment, perfectly appointed. The views are worth the rental fee alone, I spent hours sat on the balcony marvelling at the vista.

It is a very short walk to town with enough, great quality, restaurants to keep us happy. Our boys enjoyed running around on the fields and mountain behind the property and we found the overall experience A1.

We have recommended the apartment to friends.

Chalet-appartement ménagé et décoré avec goût

  • 5 of 5

...dans un style typiquement savoyard. Très belle vue sur le village Les Allues et sur la vallée de Méribel.

Très bien point de départ pour une journée de ski vers Méribel, une autre vers Courchevel, une autre vers Les Menuires-Val Thorens....

Nous avons résidé dans le calme, et non loin de très bons restaurants dans le village.

Voiture avec chaînes de neige est indispensable. Après 10 minutes en voiture et parking gratuit, assez de places disponibles, nous prenions le téléphérique.

Ski-bus gratuit jusqu"à Méribel pour sortir le soir.

En bref, malgré les journées blanches pendant toute la semaine, notre vacance de ski était fantastique !

Owner's Response: 16 Chalet Burgin est un super appartement dans un endroit magnifique dans le joli village traditionnel français de Les Allues, et comme vous le dites bien situé pour accéder à l'ensemble des Trois Vallées. Je suis heureux que vous avez apprécié la vue depuis le chalet et vous étiez confortable au l'appartement. Sur votre recommandation, l'appartement a maintenant un machine à café Tassimo! Nous avons de la neige plus lourde tombe maintenant et la saison va se poursuivre jusqu'à la fin de Avril. J'espère être en mesure de vous bienvenue à pour un autre vacances, hiver ou pourquoi ne pas visiter les beaux mois d'été.
