Recognition for Chalet Vache Bleue

Chalet Vache Bleue has been awarded the "Label Meribel" by the Meribel Tourist Office, this prestigious award is an independent classification system specifically for the Meribel valley that gives recognition to elements such as comfort, ambiance and decoration. Whilst many of the valley’s apartments and chalets already benefit from inclusion in the national tourist accommodation rating system (Chalet Vache Bleue is classified as 4 Star) this classification is based mainly on quantitative criteria (size of rooms, equipment etc), and does not sufficiently take into account the quality of accommodation.
The Méribel Label gives more importance to the quality of floor and wall coverings, It also takes into account the harmony of furniture, textiles and lighting as well as up-to-date bathrooms and kitchens. By going beyond the normal technical specifications, the Méribel Label guarantees quality apartments and chalets. We are very proud to have achieved this and are loving sharing what we have created with our guests.
 As most people would know Europe has been shivering lately and Meribel is no exception. The last 6 days have been incredibly cold requiring interesting ski tactics to survive a day in the elements. The snow is amazing, the deep base remains in great condition thanks to the cold temperatures, so it may be cold but it is worth venturing out. The pistes are quiet and although it is cold enough to freeze a finger to the camera here are a few a shots taken during the (ongoing) cold spell.
