“Chalet Ophelia: Enjoyable Short Xmas break with Flexiski”


written by MDLS on 02/01/2019

A good choice for short breaks; comfortable and reasonably convenient.

Chalet Ophelia is a short walk from the middle of Meribel Centre. The ski hire shop offer free storage of boots and skis for Flexiski clients so getting in and out was relatively easy apart from the slippery conditions.

The chalet is purpose built and the ensuite rooms are a reasonable size for the French Alps. The communal area is comfortable and focused around an open fire. There is separate TV area although we never used it and most guests seemed to opt to sit in the living area too. The whole chalet was warm as were the hot tubs. You could take evening drinks into the tubs, as long as you used the plastic glasses provided, which added a decadent touch

There is a good complement of staff with a manager, two chalet staff and a cook. When we were there there were a maximum of ten guests. When the chalet is full at twenty six guests the level of attention may not feel as high.They cope well with the regular turnover of guests although day to day room cleaning could have had a great attention to detail. They were flexible and helpful on our arrival and departure days.

The food and drink service were of a high standard. Breakfast was good with a range of hot options to complement the continental breakfast.

Afternoon tea was a cake or biscuits/flapjacks etc. Probably a good thing there was no bread as the potions at other meals were generous. When it was individual items there weren't always enough to allow for other guests having there seconds early.

Canapés and sparkling wine (or beer) are served from 7:30 with a three course dinner at 8:00. The menus were interesting and could be adapted to meet dietary requirements.
