Main Image


Chalet l'Arclusaz is a wonderful property, one of very few freestanding Mottaret chalets set in a commanding position with absolutely stunning views. 

Clad in original wood and stone, this traditional Alpine chalet has great spacious accommodation set out over three floors.  It is set into the side of the mountain and accessed by a set of steps which lead to the entrance hall and super open-plan living/dining room in which there is a roaring log fire and french windows leading to a huge terrace overlooking the whole Meribel valley and closeby village pistes. Perhaps the most wonderful aspect of this property is the superb Wellness Centre on the ground floor containing a sauna and jacuzzi which boasts one of the most dramatic and scenic positions one could wish for.  What better way to finish off your day by relaxing those tired legs over a glass of chilled House Wine overlooking the dramatic mountain peaks of Saulire and Aguille du Fruit. 

You will be warmly welcomed to Chalet l'Arclusaz by two chalets hosts (likely a couple) who live in a separate apartment nearby.

​Did You Know:  Our chalet is named after the famous Dent d'Arclusaz, the dramatic highest peak of a picturesque range of mountains in the Rhone-Alps.


Chalet l'Arclusaz is situated just above the central station of Les Chalets lift connecting the lower, middle and top parts of Meribel Mottaret.  In the mornings, you can do a short walk downhill to where to you can put on your skis to join the blue piste running to main lifts and likewise, at the end of the day, you can stop slightly higher by neighbouring buildings (on the same slope) and do a short walk back down to the chalet.  The village centre which is connected by a a miriad of metal steps is just a short walk away with its bars, shops and restaurants which have become increasingly popular gathering points over recent years.

Short Description

Mottaret at 1700m is a small village on the east-facing side of the Meribel valley and is ideal for skiers who want a little variety: Forming part of the "Trois Vallees" ski area with access to more than 200 lifts serving 600km of well-kept piste you can ski all week without getting bored! In Mottaret there are easier pistes just below the Plattières gondola and the higher resort is favoured by the intermediates and experts with long runs and great off piste on Mont Vallon. For those wanting an easier pace head to the lovely boulevard pistes while experts tackle the notorious Courchevel couloirs and Chanrossa bumps. When the cloud comes down why not try the forest runs down to La Tania and Le Praz. Apres Ski is limited but fun. There are unfortunately not that many catered chalets to choose from.
