The lowdown

Just 50 meters from the slopes, La Chaudanne offers a true ski-in-ski-out experience in the heart of the Three Valleys. The hotel has been an iconic Meribel destination since it opened in the 1960s, and has kept its reputation for genuine mountain charm and luxury. The sun-drenched indoor pool and spa are the perfect place to recharge after a day skiing, while three different restaurants offer fine dining and rustic Alpine fare in equal measure. For families, a relaxed approach and child-friendly play areas make it the ideal destination for a mountain holiday.

  • Nuxe Spa with treatments and massages, a private Moroccan hammam and spacious indoor swimming pool
  • Dedicated Chaudanne ski and sports shop at the foot of the mountain for seamless fittings

Après ski and dining

La Chaudanne offers three different restaurants and dining areas, with something to suit every occasion. Fine dining restaurant L’Ekrin has a coveted Michelin star, serving up classical French gastronomy with a mountain twist, to the backdrop of a live pianist and open wood fires. Head chef Laurent Azoulay takes diners on a culinary journey through France, from his native Province all the way to the Alps. Highlights include Provence-style trout, black truffle and crayfish from the Alpine lakes.

For a more relaxed affair, Brasserie Le 80 is a Meribel Apres-Ski destination in its own right. Open daily for lunch and dinner, the brasserie serves everything from hearty mountain fondue to country côte de boeuf, as well as oysters, salads and decadent charcuterie platters. Several evenings a week, live music and DJs from the Folie Douce bring Meribel’s famous party scene to La Chaudanne. The brand new adjacent wine bar serves a large selection of French wines by the glass.

La Chaudanne also runs the mountainside bistro Le Rok, which can be reached by foot or by skiing, and has panoramic views over the valley.
