Just above Meribel's centre, the views from Chalet Ophelia's balconies are fantastic; over the town and onto the mountains beyond. The chalet is actually two chalets joined by an internal corridor.
This means that there are two separate lounge areas each with roaring fires and comfy sofas, perfect for chilling after a day on the mountain, glass of wine in hand or pulling out a game of mousetrap.
The exposed stone and carved wooden balconies are immediately striking and this traditional exterior is carried into the chalet itself with wooden beams spanning the ceiling of the main lounge area separated from the dining room by a stunning log burning fireplace.
Most bedrooms have access to the balconies to enjoy the views and there are 9 twin rooms, 3 doubles and a triple so the chalet sleeps a maximum of 26.
All interiors have been updated ready for the 2018-19 winter season with soft light grey couches in the main living room with touches of faux fur and dark grey woolly curtains.
This theme runs through the rooms as well bringing some modern touches to a traditional chalet. But the best bit of all is the two bubbling hot tubs on the front terrace. A traditional chalet in a fabulous resort with outdoor hot tubs to come back to each afternoon. Tick, tick and tick.
Most rooms in Chalet Ophelia have a balcony with views up the valley to Mont Vallon or fantastic views across the valley from the front. The only room that doesn't is room 12, a twin room.
There are 9 twin rooms each has twin beds and is en-suite. Every room bar one also has a balcony with amazing views.
There are 3 double rooms with a double bed and a bathroom. These rooms also have a balcony with panoramic views.
There is 1 twin room that can accommodate a third bed on request for a child. You enter downstairs with the bathroom and small seating area then the bedroom is up a staircase to the eaves. The roof is low at the edges so tall people beware. The room also has a balcony.
Available for 3 night, 4 night or 7 Night Stays with or without flights
