A contemporary ski hotel that pays homage to its traditional, heavy lumber roots; La Chaudanne has an enchanting ambience that reverberates through its open hallways and spacious suites.

Crafted architecturally with a traditional, French chalet design, the snow-topped La Chaudanne looks every part the vintage ski lodge when gazed upon from the snowy streets of Meribel. Inside, however, this tradition is mixed with a fresh, modern twist, with rooms fashioned with raw timber paneling, warm fabrics and crisp furnishings.

La Chaudanne has recently undergone a complete refurbishment and now boasts a new 4 star rating. The rooms themselves are available in standard, superior, family and suite variation. Whichever you decide, each design comes with a luxury fitted bathroom, with most featuring a large outdoor balcony in order to make the most of the exquisite, alpine scenery that surrounds the resort.

Situated in the popular Meribel resort, La Chaudanne has an exceptionally close proximity to the slopes, as well as fantastic links to several other Three Valleys resorts with the main La Chaudanne ski lifts only a couple of minutes away. However, the hotel also caters for some downtime away from the slopes. The well-resourced spa area features a sauna, Turkish bath, indoor heated swimming pool and a state of the art fitness room, which is at the disposal of all its guests. Children are also catered for in this family friendly hotel, with family rooms, paperback books, computer games and cookery classes offered for kids during French holiday periods.
