Brides Les Bain/Three Valleys
Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 8
This newly decorated apartment is just 300m from the centre of Brides Les Bain and 600m from the Gondola, which gives direct access to Meribel and the whole of the three Valleys - the largest ski area in the world. The apartment is a massive 56m2 which includes a large living and dining area, kitchen, one double bedroom (King size bed) with ensuite shower room, one bunk room, one bathroom with bath and shower and a seperate toilet. There is a cabin area with bunk beds in the hallway, this is a cosy area separated by a curtain for privacy.
The sofa bed coverts to 2 full size single beds, with good mattresses that can be put together or separated. The kitchen is well equipped with microwave/oven, a large (52 litre) additional oven/grill , another small halogen oven, 4 ceramic hobs, pressure cooker, toaster, kettle, coffee maker, dishwasher, large fridge/freezer and more kitchenware than you will need to self cater for 6-8 people. A recent addition is a good quality washing machine. The apartment Sleeps 6 comfortably but can accommodate a maximum of 8, with 2 people sleeping in the living room area. Free underground parking is provided, with easy access to the apartment lifts for unloading. FREE UNLIMITED WIFI plus satellite TV with English and French channels, a DVD player, a variety of DVDs. and several board games. Fresh croissants and bread are sold in reception every morning.
We bought the apartment 3 years ago and have made many improvements and additions. if you have stayed in any Les Cybeles apartments before ours has many extras and advantages.
We have tried to keep additional costs to a minimum, secure underground parking is free, and the apartment is equipped with everything you need. You can bring your own towels and bedding. Duvets (1 king size, 6 singles), blankets and pillows are supplied, or you can hire linen. End of stay clean is only £50; this is less than the cost to us! We supply tea, coffee, sugar and milk for beverages on your first night. In addition soap, cleaning materials, washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets will all be in the apartment. All linen you have ordered will be in the apartment so you don't need to queue at reception. There is plenty of storage space and lots of hooks for drying wet ski clothes.
There is a fan in each room for the summer season.
The swimming pool and jacuzzi are free and there is a sauna and games room.
We have negotiated various discounts for our guests: the very convenient ski hire shop in the residence will give you a 40% discount , 5% off lessons with 'Magic in Motion" ski school in Meribel, and 40-60% discount on ski rental through Precision Ski in the centre of Brides. All details when you book.
Three Valleys Ski passes can be ordered in advance with a 5% discount and will be waiting for you on arrival. We can also arrange a food pack if you need.
We have a local English couple who hold keys and will help you if needed, contact details will be supplied when you book. They can supply extra cleaning, linen and many other services if requested.
Keys will be in a key safe outside the apartment, including a fob to open the underground garage. You will be given a security number for the key safe when you book and pay your deposit. You can therefore arrive as late as you like with no fear of not getting in!
A car is helpful, but not at all essential; the gondola is 600m away; a 10 minute walk or there is a ski bus which runs from the residence and another from the bottom of the drive which go directly to the gondola. All the amenities of Bride Les Bain are less than a 5 minute walk. If you have a car there is an enormous 'Super U' supermarket a few minutes away on the Moutiers road which is very good value. Without a car it would be worth a taxi trip to stock up on food for the week if you are self catering as it is much cheaper than the local small super market.
There is a newly re-furbished restaurant in the the apartment complex which serves excellent good value local food (We had 2 main courses, salad, and wine for €31). They can provides full or part board if you wish.

The Rhone/French Alps region
Brides-les-Bains in the Savoie region is a genuinely all-year-round resort village. It is part of the 3 Valleys, height 600 m and connects to the ski slopes by gondola located only 600 m from the apartment which takes you to the Meribel ski runs, and from there you have access to the whole of the three valleys. Brides-les-Bains is also famous for its thermal spa and bathing facilities dedicated to weight loss and muscular or joint problems. The unique 1500 m2 spa for your after ski, or summer relaxation features hammam (Turkish steam baths), sauna, body care and a relaxation room.
In the summer Brides les Bain is as lively as in the winter and is a great base to explore the Alps (walking, mountain biking, horseriding, white water rafting, kayaking etc). It is a very pretty town with a central river area, lots of lovely shops, bars, cafes and restaurants, but without the high prices of the rest of the three valleys. There is an excellent market every Wednesday in the summer months. Within a 5 minute walk of the apartment you will find a post office, chemist, doctors surgery, numerous and varied shops, bars, cafes and restaurants. Also a disco and casino! There is an excellent, good value pizza restaurant within 2 minutes walk of the apartment. Bride Les Bain is an incredibly pretty and friendly little town, with a beautiful central river area and everything you need for both a winter ski holiday and summer activities or Spa.

Les Trois Vallees
The Three Valleys is the biggest inter-linked ski area in the world and consisting of Brides Les Bains, Courchevel 1300, Courchevel 1550, Courchevel 1650, Courchevel 1850, La Tania, Les Ménuires, Méribel Village, Méribel Centre, Méribel Mottaret, Saint Martin de Belleville & Val Thorens.
The ski area has 600 km of pistes on 275 slopes, serviced by 198 lifts between 600m and 3200m. This really is an awesome amount of skiing and as Meribel is the central valley of the 3 Valleys, from here you have easy access to anywhere in the region
Excellent high altitude, snow sure, skiing is on offer for all abilities. There are tree lined paths and nursery slopes for beginners, wide open red pistes for the Intermediates and plenty of challenging black runs and off piste for the advanced skier. With it's north-facing aspect and 1,200 snow cannons, skiing is virtually guaranteed from December to late April. The skiing is wonderful all season, but if you are skiing early or late in the season, the three Valleys region is more snow sure than just about anywhere.
A little known fact is that the three valleys weekly pass also covers a day in the La Plagne ski area (though check this with the ski pass office, to ensure it is valid for the current season). This is easily accessed via Champagny, just 12 miles and a 20 minute drive away.
There are free shuttle buses up to Meribel every wednesday evening (look on ski.Brides-les-Bain website).
There are many ski and boarding schools in Meribel, including ESF but also several English schools. The Olympic Centre in Meribel has an ice rink, Olympic size pool with kids pool and slides, and crèche facilities, All literally just at the top of the Gondola from Brides Les Bain. Meribel offers endless more opportunities for Apres-Ski, cafes, restaurants and shops.

"Brilliant apartment that provided an ideal base for our walking, cycling and relaxing holiday."
The apartment was extraordinarily convenient and was as promised a home away from home. It was spick and span, and there was lots of little homey extra's not normally in a rental property that just made life easy (hooks, coat hangers, cloths and cleaners). On site undercover parking close to the lifts, fully working internet and satellite TV, fans for when it was hot, and as well a view from the balcony of a snow covered mountain peak made us very pleased with our choice of accommodation for our three week stay.
Brides les Bains is a peaceful small town and it provided us with a great holiday. There are lots of easily accessible walks, either low down by the river and protected when it rained, or - within a short drive – high mountain passes and peaks accessible by cable car. We took our bikes and climbed a number of cols, leaving from our front door (Valmorel, Col de Madeleine, Val Thorens).
The owners were very organised and very helpful and I would confidently recommend this apartment to anyone wanting a similar type of holiday.
Thank you so much for a detailed review. it is helpful to have a review from a summer activity holiday guest. Thank you

"An excellent portal to the 3 valleys"
A great apartment, fully equipped to allow all the comforts of home. Enjoy breakfast watching the sun come up over the facing mountains! A short walk to the cable car to ski or to the pretty town centre. All made for a most enjoyable stay. Highly recommended.
Thank you. I agree that view is very special. I do hope we can welcome you again

"Excellently equipped, welcoming & easy!"
Great apartment, excellently kitted out and very welcoming, we were delighted from start of the booking right through to end of our stay! The apartment was clean, excellently equipped (Wifi, satellite tv, washing machine, dishwasher, all kitchen needs and extras), it felt like a home away from home. All correspondence, directions and tips provided by the owners were excellent, making the whole experience as easy as possible! Couldn't recommend it more & will definitely be returning!
Thank you, I am delighted that you enjoyed the apartment and your holiday, we hope to welcome you again.

"Brides les Bain"
Great apartment with everything you need for a SC stay (free Wi Fi & UK TV great extras). Small swimming pool and jacuzzi in complex nice touch (great for kids after day skiing).Very clean, well kept and tidy. Very helpful UK owner with nothing too much trouble. Easy walk to gondola, small supermarket and restaurants.Overall an ideal place for a family ski holiday wanting a mixture of SC and eating out (cheaper than Meribel for restaurants) . Can't ski in ski out but trip in gondola nice rest at end of day. You can always drive up/down to Meribel if you want. Have stayed in BLB for last 10 years running and this has been the best to date. Would book again without hesitation.
Thank you. I am aiming to provide a personal friendly service and an immaculate homely apartment, so delighted you feel we have achieved that

"Excellent, fantastic accommodation - home from home"
First family holiday away at Christmas. Attention to detail, cleanliness and extra touches really made our stay at Brides les Bains special. The accommodation was spacious, allowing our family of 5 plenty of room. Everything we needed was available. Information and communication prior to visit was very helpful.
Thank you, I am so glad you had an enjoyable christmas in our apartment

"Great apartment near fantastic skiing. Good value. Nice bathrooms . . ."
We had a nice week early in this years ski season. Bedrooms and bathrooms were wonderful. The owners have added an electric counter-top oven and a wash machine. Really expanded our cooking options.
Brides Les Bains is a convient location to get to know Les 3 vallees skiing. Great value too.
Thank you. I am so glad you enjoyed the apartment and the Skiing

"Lovely apartment with a great view"
My fiance and I have had a lovely week in this apartment, it was very clean and very comfortable. We found the freeview TV and free Wifi very useful.
The view is also really nice - we spent many evenings sipping wine from the balcony whilst admiring it.
The owners of the property were a pleasure to deal with, and we would happily return to the area and the apartment in the future.
Thank you for your kind review. I am so glad you enjoyed your holiday

"Very comfortable apartment - recommended"
The apartment is a good size with a large lounge/dining/cooking area, double bedroom with en suite shower (no WC), separate bedroom with two bunk beds, two bunk beds in the entrance hallway (that can be sectioned off at night with a curtain and was private enough for me), a bathroom and separate WC. Cooking facilities are adequate but there is no full-size oven (a small table-top oven plus a combi-microwave). On the top floor, the apartment is quiet and access via the lift from the garage is good. Finding the apartment complex is easy. Sally recommended driving to Meribel Village (free parking right next to the Golf lift) rather than using the Olympe and this was definitely a good move. This was our first time in the 3-Valleys and it's huge, with a good variety of runs and, if conditions are good, a fantastic amount of accessible off-piste. Some slow chairs, quite a bit of polling and an iffy piste map do detract a bit though. Brides les Bains is a small town with a few reasonable restaurants and a couple of bars (apparently, there's also a nightclub!); our regular was the Petite Auberge. Overall, a good week's skiing.
Thank you - We have now added a large (52 litre) oven/grill, in addition to the microwave/oven which will give more than ample cooking capacity.

"Very comfortable and cosy apartment, if you have the chance rent it! Friendly owners."
The apartment was great! The arrival was easy and as the owner explained. We didn't have any bad surprises.
The flat is much bigger than it looks in the pictures. The owner thought about every detail which made us feel as if we were in a friend's house.
The heating system works perfectly as well as the hot water, something very important when you are coming back from skiing.
The bathroom and the kitchen were spotless and the apartment in itself has plenty of room to put away your staff.
You can tell that the owners prepared the apartment with love and really thinking in the guests needs.
Apart from the apartment we received information about the ski resort and as many details as you can imagine, we found this very useful.
We went with a car and it was a pleasure to live it in an indoor parking as it was snowing really hard. Great location to visit with car Courchevel, Val Thorens and Meribel.
If I have the opportunity I will rent it again.
Thank you for a great review. I am delighted you enjoyed your holiday and the apartment. Please do come back, it has been a pleasure to deal with you
