Les Cybeles, Brides les Bains
Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Residence Cybele was originally built to accommodate athletes during the 1992 Winter Olympics and has recently undergone extensive refurbishment. The residence comprises 132 apartments in a seven story building (with lift), conveniently located just 300m from the centre of town and 600m from the Olympic Gondola to Meribel.
Guests have free access (via a code, obtainable from reception) to an indoor, heated swimming pool, Jacuzzi and sauna and, during reception hours, a games room with pool table, video games and pin -ball. There is a bar and restaurant in the residence with the option of half-board if required. Other useful services include a laundry, a ski equipment shop, ski lockers and paid for wi-fi internet access in reception although the apartment now has its own FREE WiFi service for your unlimited use, something not available in many other apartments in this residence. It also has both French AND ENGLISH TV installed, via Sky, again, something that isn't available in most of the apartments in this Residence.
I have access to a negotiated discount of 40% on ski hire as well as service (edge and wax for 10 euros overnight) at the Intersport shop next to the main reception at the residence and will let you know what to quote for these discounts once your booking is confirmed and paid for. This is 15% better than the available discount by booking direct with the hotel.
There is access to the property, via a door to the left of reception, at all times so you can arrive as late as you like and you will always get in!
Please note that end of stay cleaning is not included in the prices quoted and will cost an additional £50 which is passed in its entirety to a cleaning company. There is a compulsory damage deposit of £500 which may be sent by cheque but that is 100% refundable (we can destroy or return your cheque) after the apartment is checked over at the end of your stay.
This is a luxuriously furnished studio apartment, measuring approximately 28m2, that sleeps four via a double sofa bed and two single bunk beds in an alcove, that was fully fitted with new furniture and appliances five years ago. There is a bathroom with WC and shower above the bath. The adjoining kitchenette is equipped with a ceramic hob, a microwave/grill, a dishwasher, a coffee maker, and the necessary crockery, cutlery and utensils. There is also a widescreen TV with analogue and satellite channels.
Based in the beautiful town of Brides les Bains, with its river and bridges, it offers easy and quick access to the vast 3 Vallees skiing via either Telecabine or driving up to Meribel Centre, either way, less than 30 minutes door to door. The apartment is located 300m from the resort centre and 600m from the Olympic gondola. There is a free local bus that goes from just outside the Residence to the Olympic gondola and back in the evening or, otherwise, it's about a 10 minute walk and there are ski lockers in Meribel (at the top of the gondola) if you don't want to do this in ski boots! Staying in Brides les Bains offers you a cost-effective way of skiing the whole of the extensive 3 Vallees area and, on occasion, you can even ski all the way back!
Brides-les-Bains offers access to an impressive 600km of slopes for skiers of all abilities and energy levels! The Meribel Valley itself boasts 140km of slopes, as well as two snowparks. Cross-country skiing The Meribel ski area offers 33km of cross-country trails, which are suitable for skiers of all abilities.
In Meribel Centre, the "Les Saturins" nursery offers childcare to children aged between 18 months to 3 years and is located in the centre of the Olympic Park, offering both indoor and outdoor activities. The "Les Petits Loups" kindergarten located in Meribel Centre and Meribel Mottaret welcomes slightly older children aged from 3 to 5 years.
There are a number of restaurants and pubs in Brides les Bains so you can choose to apres ski within walking distance of your apartment. There are also several shops providing day to day groceries and ski equipment/clothing, including a ski rental shop at the residence itself which offers good discounts on hire. Breakfast (croissants etc) can also be purchased in the reception area every morning.
General speaking, changeover day is Saturday for a week's stay although short stays might also be possible, subject to availability, and changeover on a different day may also be possible.
Lift pass prices for skiers staying in Brides-les-Bains include access to the gondola and these can be purchased in-resort or in advance. A pass of at least six days includes one day in one other resort such as La Plagne/Les Arcs or Tignes/Val d'Isere.
Bed linen and towels are not included automatically but can be booked and paid for in advance at a rate of 17.50 euros per single set and 22.50 euros per double set of linen with the cost of bath towels being 6 euros each and hand towels being 3 euros each. There is free, secure, underground parking.
Other services that we can offer include arranging for ski passes to be pre purchased and delivered to you on arrival. Shopping can be pre-ordered and delivered for a charge of 60 euros plus the cost of the shopping. This is normally saved by the cost of a large (say, 200 euros) supermarket shop compared to shopping locally. Welcome food, containing milk, orange juice, bread, butter, ham, cheese and tea bags cost 17.50 euros and can be ordered a few days prior to arrival.
In the summer, this is a great location for hill walking, cycling, tennis (facilities in the town and in nearby Moutiers) and river-rafting. Brides les Bains is a genuine dual season resort so is as busy in summer as in winter. It is known for its spa facilities and, in the summer, local restaurants offer calorie controlled menus! The local water is free and comes highly recommended!
Other activities in Brides les Bains include a fitness/spa centre with hammam, saunas, treatments and whirlpool, cinema, night clubs, a casino, bars and restaurants...
