Is this luxury ski chalet in the French Alps, or is this Narnia? We wouldn’t blame you for the confusion, as stepping out into the peaceful, snow covered surrounding could lead you to believing the latter.
Nestled amongst the trees, Chalet Haapiti is tucked away in the Dou du Pont area, yet only moments away from the beautiful and vibrant resort of Meribel. On the odd occasion, you may even be lucky enough to see deer pass by, sometimes even from the pool area. This luxury snow front property also offers sublime views of mountains, inviting you to enjoy one of the best ski areas in the world.
Inside, you’ll find a cozy open-plan living area with its high beams and roaring fireplace at the heart of the chalet. Rustic woods and rough-hewn stone bring a combination of natural charm and Alpine chic to this well-appointed winter lodge, giving a cosy and welcoming ambiance. The living room with stylish and comfy seating area is focused around a fireplace and floor-to-ceiling glass doors, allowing light to flood in.
A heavenly dip in the private indoor swimming pool is just the ticket after a day hurtling down the slopes. If you haven’t pushed yourself hard enough, there is also a gym if you wish to maintain your fitness regime.
At the end of each evening, after a nightcap in front of the fire or on the terrace, it’s time to turn in for the night. To ensure you sleep long and soundly, each bedroom is designed with comfort in mind, with puffy duvets and luxury bath products, ready to make the most of everything Meribel has to offer in the morning.
Due to its peacefully secluded location, guests should be advised that access to Chalet Haapiti may be challenging in heavy snow conditions, especially those travelling with children or guests with reduced mobility.

All children dream of escaping to a winter wonderland. Being surrounded by fluffy snow and hidden amongst the trees, Chalet Haapiti does not disappoint.
Outside, they can build an army of snowmen and challenge adults to snowball fights. When it is time to come inside, fresh faced and rosy cheeked, the private indoor swimming pool will be a huge hit should they have any left-over energy from a busy day.
In the evenings, junior guests will enjoy hunkering down in the dorm room with their own TV, so adults can relax in peace upstairs.
Nannies and babysitters can be arranged on request.
