Things to Know

Minimum stay: 7 days Saturday-Saturday in the winter. The rest of the year, minimum stay is 5 days and arrival can be any day of the week. Stair gates are installed on the stairs between the ground and first floor but not above that; there is a barrier around the wood stove to keep kids safe. The kitchen includes a freezer, fridge, microwave and dishwasher plus 3 electric stoves and 5 gaz cooktops. Also included is a toaster, coffee machine, boiler and 2 raclette grills. The owners live on the ground floor of the chalet and can help with anything during your stay. The kitchen area must be cleaned at the end of your stay and be in the same state as arrival. Optional services include bakery breakfasts, private chefs for lunch/dinner, additional cleaning, ski/snowboard or paragliding/speedriding lessons available with the owner and massages (all for an extra fee). There is reliable high speed WiFi throughout.

About the Location

The residence is in the Trois Vallées, under 10 minutes north of Meribel in Le Cruet, above Les Allues. Private outdoor parking is available. It is possible to ski back to the chalet given enough snow on the Les Allues ski run. There is a free shuttle to Méribel, where the slopes start, running from a stop in front of the house. Alternatively, drive 2 minutes to Les Allues and take a gondola up to Méribel. Or drive straight to the slopes in Méribel - there is plenty of parking. The chalet is on the main road with easy car access and 3 private parking spaces. It is 10 minutes on foot from Les Allues village with a grocery store, restaurants and bars, and 5 minutes by car from Meribel centre, plus 15 minutes by car from Moutiers. Chambery is the nearest airport, 75 minutes' drive away, while Grenoble and Lyon are a 2-hour drive. Geneva is a 3-hour drive away. There are bus routes from all airports but car hire may be easier.

Style Notes

Contemporary eco. This modern chalet was built in 2015 and designed to have a low ecological impact. Made of simple but quality materials, wood is predominant with dark wood flooring and bright walls. All bathrooms and kitchen have concrete-like tiles and there is an exposed brickwork wall in the living room. In all bedrooms for a warmer feel there are wood-styled carpets. The chalet was built using latest technologies (Canadian well, double flux ventilation system, water heat recovery, wood fibre insulation, automatic wood stove and triple layer glasses to name a few) for a very low energy consumption. We love the mountain views, the cozy sofas and the cute playroom.

Nous sommes un couple avec deux jeunes enfants profitant de la montagne au maximum. J'enseigne le ski et le snowboard dans les 3 vallées depuis 2002 et emmène les gens voler en parapente à l'intersaison et pendant l'été. A mes heures perdues je bricole pas mal le bois (ma nouvelle passion depuis la construction de notre chalet). Habitant au RDC du Chalet KAWA nous sommes toujours disponible pendant votre séjour. Nous connaissons bien la région et ce sera avec plaisir que nous vous conseillerons sur les activités à faire. A bientôt!
