Great stay, would recommend to all!
The official USA cycle racing team came to stay for a period this summer in chalet Nikita to do some high altitude training whilst taking it a bit easy between major competitions. They made very good use of all the space in our ground floor garages, with all their equipment, and were a treat to meet . They would be most welcome to stay again sometime.
Fantastic chalet and overall holiday in Meribel
We stayed at Nikita for 5 nights, with 4 full days skiing towards the end of March. Over the 4 days we were fortunate enough to ski all three valleys, with sunshine gracing the slopes for the majority of our visit. The village of Chandon (where the chalet is located) is very easy to find, and the shuttle bus runs frequently to Chaudanne or Meribel Village. We hired our equipment in Chaudanne, where we were given a 30% discount for staying at Nikita - the people at Precision Ski were very nice and helpful. Eating out on the slopes is generally expensive, but our favourite lunch spot (food quality & views) was Cave des Creux, which is located by going up to Courchevel 1850 and taking the Aguille de Fruit chairlift if I remember correctly. The Ronnie (le Rond Point) was always fun for a few Apres drinks, and you can then ski back down into Chaudanne to get home. There was a superb authentic French restaurant called La Mortagon that served raclette's, fondues and steaks located in La Raffort, which is one stop before Chandon on the shuttle bus. We had an amazing time and would certainly hope to return again. Lastly, much thanks must go to Alaric and Katia for being wonderful hosts.
This is a useful update on a number of eating places, and yes we don't take a commission off the ski shops like all the other chalets, so you get a really good deal for your money via Nikita. Thank you for your highly appreciative review and look forward to seeing you again!
Great location- nice to be out of the condo central
We had a great week stay at Nikita. It was as described, location was good, right next to the bus line, which made for easy access to Meribel center. Being able to ski back in to the top of the road behind the village was a nice thing too. Particularly enjoyed not being in the condo/ apartment scene of the main ski centers. Good communication by the owner too- thanks Alaric
Hmm. I think 'Condo Central' is a clever term for what we too think is worth avoiding when skiing. Because why miss being in a traditional alpine village just because we are there to ski? Surely that's what completes the amazing experience of being up there in this snowy wonderland world? It certainly does for us, and it certainly does for many of our guests, though none have written so clearly and so well to this point as in this particular review. And the funny thing is, we come across lots of skiers who end up spending far more time getting to the lifts, even though they are in condo central, because they have to leg it quite a lot, whereas our guests just hop on the shuttle which takes them directly there.
Having said all this, we were lucky with this group because they were very patient about one of our three showers, which had got damaged a bit, meaning that the shower takers on that floor had to be a little careful where they directed the water. They were very understanding about it, and didn't let this get in the way of their week at all, so thanks again for that very nice review guys, and if you had given us four instead of five stars, we would have understood completely...
Very large comfortable house with 10 minute ride on ski bus to the lift
Our experience at Chalet Nikita was great. Four friends from the US and I from Germany booked the house based on prior reviews and we were not disappointed. Each of us had our own room with plenty of space. The ski bus picked us up 15 ft from the house and it was a 10 min ride to the lift. We had never been skiing in Europe and were amazed at the number of lifts, vertical ascent, and on/ off piste skiing. An added bonus is the ability to park the car at the house and the washing machine and dishwasher.
Perfect place for alpine stay
We stayed at Chalet Nikita in Meribel and thoroughly enjoyed our visit there. The chalet is spacious, well laid out and had everything we needed – and more. It has a very home-like feel and was an excellent place to relax after a day’s skiing. Good access to the pistes and great to be able to ski back at the end of the day. What added to the pleasure of our holiday was the location. The chalet is on a pretty street in a beautiful community of small streets and houses. We have stayed at many resort-style properties over the years and really enjoyed the contrast of being in a “real home.” We have no hesitation in recommending Chalet Nikita to anyone looking for a break in a charming alpine setting.
Dr Pring Mill, thank you for taking the time to write this review. The reason our chalet is like a 'real home' as you say, is that we use it a lot ourselves, and spend a good period of time there in the summer as well. Which is why the kitchen is much better equipped than normal (guests appreciate and comment on this frequently) - so often when we rent other places abroad we find that there is the minimum of cutlery and kitchen pots and cooking cutlery. The location is great too, and the very friendly village atmosphere is much nicer than the ski station anonymity, with its large roads and commerce. We have made many good friends outside our chalet at the shuttle bus stop...
3 days at Chalet Nikita
Very well located chalet: it is quite during the night, while an easy ride (by car or by bus) to the center of the resort and the ski lifts.
Very confortable, with a great living room, a well equiped kitchen and 4 nice bedrooms.
All good !
Ski ned til Meribel Chandon i sesong, men opphold i ekte karakter alpin landsby unngår støyende ski stasjon. Sentral beliggenhet av hytte i landsbyen med skyttelbussen stopper rett utenfor, så ingen går til buss. Les Allues nedenfor oss med 3 restauranter, og Meribel Village like over oss, med Boulangerie, Butikker og Heis bare 3 minutter unna. Eller 8 minutter med buss til skiskole og andre heiser.
Golf: Flott kurs en kort hopp unna Meribel Village
