Chalet Fontany, located in the hamlet of Meribel Village, is a family chalet combining traditional and contemporary styles. Located a few minutes from the slopes and shops, you can access the ski area of the 3 Valleys in a few steps.
Chalet Fontany is one of the most authentic chalets in Meribel Village with a history of its own Destroyed to be completely rebuilt “exactly respecting the footprints and all that corresponded to the original cottage, the exteriors are identical to the old ones with a more contemporary dimension,” according to Rémi Giffon, architect of the Fontany chalet revival. Made of old wood and stone, the facades of this family chalet blend perfectly with the natural environment in which it stands.
In collaboration with the English owners, Atelier Rémi Giffon designed some of the furniture, then built by their carpenter in the same wood as the rest of the chalet. The owners, very invested in the project, imported many pieces from England, taking advantage of different influences. The local Savoyard spinning mill, Arpin, has been used for curtains and headboards that provide warmth through the use of mountain wool. The use of noble and local materials such as old wood, wool or stone make Chalet Fontany a family chalet where it feels good to stay.
The night areas promote serenity and bear the name of a forest animal, a recurring theme in this family chalet. The Fontany has magnificent 3 double bedrooms, where 6 guests will find comfort and tranquility after a long day on the slopes. The bedroom with bunk beds will be ideal for children or teenagers. The beautiful Master bedroom will delight parents who will plunge into a modern room, perfect for relaxing and getting away from the bustle of the Multi Room. This Multi Room is part of the creation of a basement larger than before because it is dug underground with an extension. Divided into two parts, is is completely under the existing terrace. The children will be delighted to share a large room just for them, with two hanging beds and two double beds.
The second part will be one of the favorite places of all guests: a very cozy TV room. Upon entering, you will be seized by the beautiful backlit photo of the “Fontany Forestas it has been nicknamed by the owners and the architect. It gives the impression of a window open onto the outside, and brings a hint of calm in usually animated and lively room.

At the same level is an independent bathroom where you can relax in the dry heat of the sauna, or relax in the whirlpool bath.
“Placing the main living area on the top floor is a significant advantage. An open space under a framework of old wood with tha kitchen, dining room and living room,” perfect to reunite the whole family in a crossing room bathed in natural light. The living room is divided in two: a corner with a television and fur seats for cozy comfort, and a part with large gray sofas arranged in a square for convivial meetings where everyone discusses his prowess on the slopes of the 3 Valleys. Both are warmed by the imposing stone fireplace that will welcome you at the top of the stairs. The fully equipped open kitchen will be the scene of the culinary experiences of the amateur chefs, while the others will gather around the long table to enjoy the carefully prepared dinner.
