Chalet Vanakam is a new chalet situated in a great location just above Les Allues, set back from the main road. The views both up and down the valley are superb and there is a large balcony at the front looking up to the Meribel ski area. One of the great advantages of this chalet is it's proximity to the bus stop, which is about 50 metres from the front door. Having stayed in the centre of Meribel several times and other chalets in the valley it is fair to say that you get far more for your money away from the centre. The excellent free bus service is punctual and regular, meaning that in many ways it is easier to get to the slopes than staying in the centre of Meribel. The chalet itself is spacious, comfortable and appointed to a high standard with all the essential facilities and comforts provided. The Summit chalets team ensure that everything you need is provided and will organise lift passes, etc as required. Chalet Vanakam would certainly be our preferred choice on our next visit to Meribel.
