Full Description


Guaranteed snow, masses of km of pistes, great beginner areas, one of the biggest and best snowboard parks in the alps (and good for all levels too), some fantastic apres-ski, a new blue run back to resort (whereas before it had more limited options right at the bottom), and if conditions are good it has direct access to the best off-piste playground in the alps – La Grave! It can be Les 2 Alpes!

We last went there in 2013 and had a blast. It’s got all the above in one great neat package, so no worrying about buses to other villages, or how/when you’re going to get back from apres-ski! :-)

Meribel 21

We’re staying in a great chalet-hotel which is right at the bottom of some of the pistes, and a short walk to the many bars for apres-ski!

It’s also got an indoor pool and sauna and steam room for anyone who can tear themselves away from the slopes and bars early enough.

It’s a large hotel (about 150) so we won’t have exclusive use of it, but we’ve got 60 beds held for now, and can increase that accordingly. Of these rooms 16 are ‘superior’ ones, which come at a £50pp (£100 per room) supplement. These are rooms with a piste view. If you’d like one of these please request it upon booking and they are of course given out on a first pay first basis!

COST – £750pp (saving £79!). This includes flights (as below), transfers, accommodation on a chalet-board basis, 3 course dinner and wine with the meal….and of course me as your 8th Day Adventure host to help you make the most of the trip!

Rooms – we have 16 superior twins available, which are a £50pp supplement and come with a piste view. Please request these at the time of booking if you’d like one.

TO BOOK – please ‘register interest’ above and I’ll be in touch with payment details. It is a £125 deposit, which is non-refundable.

Below is further information about the resort and the hotel, as taken from the Mark Warner website:
Skiing in Les Deux Alpes

You won’t just like it, you’ll love it! Les Deux Alpes is a lively village and one of the oldest resorts in France. For singles, couples and families you’ll find there’s a wide choice of bars and restaurants along the resort’s main street that will suit all pockets and tastes – including the Tribeca Bar and Restaurant or The Windsor Pub.

With an impressive snow record and above average sunshine to put you in the mood, this resort has over 200km of pistes and areas to suit all levels of skier and snowboarder.  Popular attractions include an outdoor ice rink and two sports centres.

Our Resort in Les Deux Alpes

Nestled at the foot of the slopes, the Chalet Hotel Berangere has an amazing location just alongside the piste. Facing south, with a superb view of the mountains, the hotel has a large sunny terrace and balconied rooms allowing you to make the most of the sunshine on those good weather days.

This resort is perfect for Skiing or Snowboarding in Les Deux Alpes. You can ski from 3,400m all the way to 1,300m without getting on a lift.

If you are an off piste extreme skier, you may be interested in La Grave, offering some of the most exciting and challenging terrain in the world – be warned you must arrange a local guide to take you to La Grave, as skiing is dangerous.

Chalet hotel Berangere – Superb Mountains Views

les2alps1

One of France’s oldest and most prestigious ski resorts – skiing is lovely in Les Deux Alpes thanks to the resort’s high altitude location and glacier, which is the largest in Europe. Nestled at the foot of the slopes, the Chalet hotel Berangere has an amazing location just alongside the piste. Facing south, with a superb view of the mountains, the hotel has a large sunny terrace and balconied rooms allowing you to make the most of the sunshine on those good weather days.
Heated indoor pool, sauna and steam room

Inside this lovely hotel, you will find plenty of seating around the log fire in the lounge and bar, a bright and spacious dining room, and on the lower ground floor, there is a sauna, steam room and heated indoor swimming pool. If you need to soothe some tired muscles or just feel like some pampering, try one of the fabulously indulgent beauty treatments and massages on offer at the Viva Salon.

The bedrooms are tastefully decorated with super comfy beds and many have balconies too. There are plenty of room options from singles to family suites and whether you come on your own, as a family or a couple, you’ll find everything you need.
