Chalet Lightbowne

12 guests · 6 bedrooms · 6.5 baths
City chic is tucked up under the eaves of this fully catered, mountain-view Méribel chalet. Paneled walls in bright tones, contrasting tile, and pieces from designers like Tom Dixon and Philippe Starck conspire to bring the easy elegance of a London flat to the Trois Vallées area of the French Alps. In fact, it’s very close to the Alps, with a ski lift 3 minutes away by private-driver service.
Days on the slopes are best finished with a session in the villa’s spa before the evening’s aperitif and canapés are served. Unwind in the indoor hot tub and sauna, and ask the chalet manager to help book a treatment in the massage area.
Once soothed, shift to a great room with a living area and dining table for 14, find a book in the sapphire-blue library, or serve yourself a snack from a fully equipped kitchen with a breakfast bar. Exposed wood beams and stone walls hint at chalet coziness, but the overall look—both here and in the 6 bedrooms—emphasizes polished British design.
It’s fitting, then, that the ski area was actually founded by a British skier in the ’30s. See what inspired him when you drive 3 minutes to the Rhodos lift station and the Parc Olympique de Méribel. After the day’s last run, it’s a 4-minute trip to the shops and restaurants in the picturesque town center, which carry everything from ski gear to local cheeses.
