Highly rated ski chalet in the French Alps

As Featured in Hello Magazine - April 2017

"Start the morning with a ski in a world-class resort, stop for lunch at an alfresco mountain restaurant, finish the day with a few more runs, relax your muscles with a massage and hot tub session and indulge in some afternoon tea and cake. Our idyllic days were rounded off with three-course dinners made by the chalet's private chef, but not before canapés and a fresh round of champagne."

"Unparalleled service and luxury accommodation aside, Chalet Merlo has another unbeatable draw. Its location means it's only a half-hour drive to more than five resorts, and some of the best Alpine skiing. Getting around is no problem with the chalet's private minibus and chauffeur."
