Chalet Fontbel, located in the hamlet of Méribel Village, is a family chalet combining traditional and contemporary. Located a few minutes from the slopes and shops, you can access the area of 3 Valleys in a few steps.
The Fontbel chalet is one of the most authentic chalets in Méribel Village: it has a historical dimension that touches the sensitivity of each guest. Destroyed to be completely rebuilt "exactly respecting the footprints" and all that corresponded to the original cottage, "the exteriors are identical to the old ones with a more contemporary dimension", according to Rémi Giffon, architect of the Fontbel chalet revival. Made of old wood and stone, the facades of this family cottage blend perfectly with the natural environment in which it bathes.
Associated with the English owners, Atelier Rémi Giffon designed some of the furniture, then built by their carpenter in the same wood as the rest of the chalet. The owners, very invested in the project, imported many pieces from England, taking advantage of different influences. The local spinning mill, Arpin, has been used for curtains and headboards that provide warmth through mountain wool. The use of noble and local materials such as old wood, wool or stone make Chalet Fontbel a family cottage where it is good to stay.
The night spaces promote serenity and bear the name of a forest animal, a recurring theme in this family cottage. The Fontbel has magnificent 3 double rooms, where 6 guests will find softness and tranquility after a long day on the slopes. The bedroom with bunk bed will be ideal for young adults who do not want to be with children: two teenagers will enjoy listening to music or reading in this room with natural tones. The beautiful Master bedroom will delight parents who will plunge into a clean room, perfect for relaxing and getting away from the bustle of the Multi Room.
This piece is part of the "creation of a basement larger than before because it is dug underground with an extension" that is the Multi Room. Divided into two parts, is is completely under the existing terrace. The children will be delighted to share a large room just for them, with two hanging beds and two double beds.
The second part will be one of the favorite places of all guests: a very cozy TV room. Upon entering, you will be seized by the beautiful backlit photo of the "Forest Fontany", nicknamed by the owners and the architect. It gives the impression of a window open on the outside, and brings the calm in this room where the animation is de rigueur. Comfortably settled in one of the colored armchairs, you will be able to spend privileged moments in family. At the same level is an independent bathroom where you can relax in the dry heat of the sauna, or relax in the whirlpool bath.
"Having placed the living room part on the top floor is a significant advantage. An open space under a framework of old wood with kitchen, dining room and living room", perfect to reunite the whole family in a crossing room bathed in natural light. The living room is divided in two: a corner with a television and fur seats for cozy comfort, and a party with wide gray sofas arranged in a square for convivial meetings where everyone discusses his prowess on the slopes of the 3 Valleys. Both are warmed by the imposing stone fireplace that will welcome you to the top of the stairs.
The fully equipped open kitchen will be the scene of the culinary experiences of the scullions, while the others will gather around the long table to enjoy the carefully prepared dinner.
Chalet Fontbel is a chalet that will delight families looking for unforgettable memories in the French Alps. Its beautiful volumes and the perceived luminosity throughout the day, its dedicated spaces and the conviviality that it releases make of Fontbel the family chalet par excellence in Méribel.
