You’ll have the house to yourself.
Chalet Iona is unique. There are no other private chalets in the 3 valleys with the peace, space, views and silence as this one. Entirely remodelled in the summer and autumn of 2017, Iona is lovelier than ever. Two new sun decks have been added - one with a sunken open-air jacuzzi for 12, the only one of its type in Meribel.

Surrounded by orchards, views from its east, west and south-facing balconies stretch 35 km to the glaciers of La Plagne, the 3 valleys and 12 mountain villages.

The space
Stunning views. Unusually spacious. Intimately decorated. Well equipped and appointed, with minute attention to detail. Luxury is a hackneyed word - but everything at this chalet is designed for your (and my family's) comfort, enjoyment and relaxation.

The property comprises of a main chalet with 6 en-suite bedrooms to sleep 12 people comfortably (further beds can be added for large groups). There are two master bedrooms.

The Chalet has an open plan professional kitchen and a vast open plan dining and sitting area with views on 3 aspects. Meals are served on an 18ft hand-made oak table with crushed velvet hand-made seats for 20. There is a modern fireplace with seating areas for after- dinner drinks.

Stairs down to a spacious lounge with three seating areas, a fireplace and a 73 inch smart TV with Marantz cinema sound system. Bookcase with modern and classics, full DVD library, classic board games and telescope. Children's games are available.

Iona's sister chalet, Chalet India, at the same address sleeps 4-6 and can be rented at the same time. Details and photos on her own listing. The views and morning sun in this sister chalet are unbeatable.

Location

Meribel, Rhone-Alpes, France

Le Villard in Meribel les Allues is a real alpine village. It dates from the 17th century. Chalet Iona and her sister Chalet India are only a 4 minute car-ride from the Olympe Express bubble lift to Meribel, yet they remain a million miles from life's hectic daily struggle. The chalet's silence and tranquillity is an antidote to stressful big-city living. The views are breathtaking and there is enough space for everyone, including (I would know) all of your teenage kids and their friends. There is not another property like this for rental in the 3 Valleys. It is surrounded by our own apple and cherry trees but they're asleep in winter, so you'd have to come back in summer or autumn to enjoy them.

Although you will feel miles away, the chalet is no further from the centre of Meribel than many of the other chalets and apartments that share its postcode.
