Private Residences by Small Luxury Hotels of the World

France, Méribel Lodge SHL

Traditional Savoyard style, in the heart of the Méribel ski resort

This 600 square metre property was completely rebuilt in 2012 to reflect the style and tradition of the Savoyard. SHL Lodge has a wonderful location, only 30 metres from the slopes. Whilst only being a short walk from the town centre, the views from the south facing terraces and balcony will find you lost in the beauty of the panoramic view of the valley slopes.

On the ground floor by the entrance, you will find the ski room on one side and relaxation area on the other, which offers a lounge, exercised bike counter-current or resistance swimming pool and hammam. There are five bedrooms and a laundry room on the first floor, then a vast lounge with 3 metre sofa, fireplace, library and mezzanine, plus the professional kitchen and dining room. The third floor has the master bedroom and home cinema which can convert into a double bedroom.

The chef will prepare a fitting breakfast for those needing energy for the slopes, with lunches and dinners as required. To accompany this you are unlikely to be disappointed by the wine list as the private cellar is impressive. The owners of Lodge SHL also own the Bordeaux Grand Cru Château Smith Haut Lafitte, and in addition the cellar has wines from Pétrus to Château Margaux and Château Yquem. If you wish to discuss your wine preferences in advance, then the butler would be happy to do so and of course arrange lift pass bookings, planning and organising any activities.

Méribel and the surrounding area, is blessed with some wonderful restaurants, bars and slope-side stops with terraces whose views will last long in the memory. Of course, most winter visitors come for the amazing skiing – Les 3 Vallés is quite simply the largest ski area in the World and with a split of ski runs categorised as Green 25%, Blue 25%, Red 30% and Black 20%, this really is a perfect place for skiers of all abilities.

Lodge SHL belongs to the owners of SLH sister properties Les Sources de Caudalie and Les Etangs de Corot.

Recommendations

  • Best local fine dining restaurant Val Thorens – L’Oxalys, the two Michelin star restaurant run by Jean and Magali Sulpice, now becoming so famous that it is more often than not just called the Jean Sulpice Restaurant. Unlike many Michelin restaurants and perhaps because of its mountain setting, you are as likely to see people wearing big sweaters as you are smarter attire. Jean Sulpice is one of the youngest 2 star Michelin chefs, so space is very much in demand, but as the chef patron is also a friend of the owners of SHL Lodge, be sure to ask us in advance to try and make that reservation for you – Val Thorens is a few more kilometres away, but the journey is really worth it. http://en.jeansulpice.com/
  • Best local fine dining restaurant Courchevel – Try Le 1947 at Cheval Blanc, another 2 Michelin star restaurant, this time fusing traditional French cuisine with Chef Yannick Alléno’s sparkling creativity http://www.courchevel.chevalblanc.com/en/culinary-art/1947.html
  • Best casual restaurant – A lovely casual restaurant in Courchevel 1650 with a nice terrace and stunning views http://www.belair-courchevel.com
  • Best restaurant for lunch – – Télébar is something of an institution as it was the first hotel and restaurant in Méribel so we consider it a must http://www.telebar-hotel.com/uk/index.php Only open in the winter and featuring two large and beautiful fireplaces, this is rustic charm at its finest.
  • Best patisserie – Maison Braissand have two patisseries in Méribel, Les Glaciers and Les Flocons – so tempting, but as the area is so geared to the outdoor life, you will need the extra energy http://www.maisonbraissand.com/index.html
  • Best place for a sundowner – So many bars, so little time! We are certain there are more bars to try on the slopes than you will have days available and you will be sure to get a warm welcome.
  • Best local bar – La Folie Douce is a trendy bar built to party http://lafoliedouce.com/meribel/
  • Best nightclub – Try La Folie Douce during the day for a great bar experience, or go in the evening and throw some shapes  … otherwise known as dancing the night away!
  • Best place for a picnic – If the mountainside restaurants don’t tempt you, there are so many spots to stop and eat a picnic or if you are travelling light just a sandwich, with views that are hard to beat.
  • Notable local cultural events , festivals or celebrations – 2015 Ski World Cup http://www.fis-ski.com/news-multimedia/news/article=alpine-experts-inspect-meribel-host-2015-season-finals.html
  • Must see – The view – okay, so we know we are biased and we know that there are many beautiful places in the World, but if you just stop for a moment and look around you on the mountain slopes, you will surely see a riot of nature.
  • Must do – Ski!
  • Must try – Dog sledding – take a look at some great pictures at http://www.huskymeribel.com
  • Best time to visit for the weather – January to March.
