Live to Ski


Ski Vive is an independent chalet company delivering a personal service in fantastic luxury catered chalets for groups of 4 to 12 people in central Meribel and Meribel Mottaret.

Our mission is to make your holiday as fabulous as possible. Relax and take in the amazing views from the comfort of the chalet, enjoy wonderful home cooked food, and ski or snowboard to your heart’s content

Our chalets are chosen both for their great locations and the quality of the chalet itself. La Fugue has a more traditional quaint feel to it and Clementine is bright and airy with clean lines and modern furnishings. Gaillard is homely and comfortable and right opposite Chalet Clementine in Meribel Mottaret for those wanting to book for larger groups across 2 chalets. Gentiane is our smallest chalet, great for one family or honeymoon couples.

After an exhausting day you can sit beside the open fire and drink a glass of wine while you wait for a delicious dinner to be delivered.

Chalet Clementine

Chalet Clementine sleeps 10 in 5 en-suite bedrooms. We have a sauna on the entrance floor and the open plan living area creates a wonderful atmosphere with amazing views up to Mont Vallon.

Its central Mottaret location is the best place to ski from in the 3 Valleys, with quick lifts to the highest Meribel slopes and great access to Courchevel and Val Thorens.

Chalet La Fugue

Chalet La Fugue sleeps 12 and is spread over three floors with 6 bedrooms and two separate living rooms, and stunning views across the valley of the Olympic ski run.

It is ski out and almost ski in, and only minutes from the centre of Meribel. With a beautiful sun terrace and an open fire we know you’ll love Chalet La Fugue.

Chalet Gaillard

Chalet Gaillard is a homely chalet, with 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms.

The chalet is ideal for 2 families or groups of adults. It sleeps 12 in total but it is best suited to a maximum of 8 adults.

The chalet is located in the centre of Mottaret opposite Chalet Clementine.

Chalet Gentiane

Chalet Gentiane is a beautiful catered apartment right in the centre of Meribel. The shops, restaurants and bars are on your doorstep and the slopes are just 100 metres away.

This apartment is perfect for a honeymoon, or for a family or small group of friends.

Chalet La Fugue is fantastic. The location is just off the piste, perfect for skiing and also right next to the escalator to take you down to the middle of town. The chalet is cosy and charming. It was perfect for our group of 8 friends. Lee & Lou, the hosts, were top notch! The whole trip from start to finish was such a pleasure. We highly recommend Ski Vive and Chalet La Fugue to anyone looking for a great ski holiday experience!

The chalet itself is really well-placed for the snow, right in the best vantage point of the three valleys. A 3-minute yomp on the flat gets you to the Mottaret lift area where you have the choice of North. South, East or West across the three valleys. It goes without saying that the ski areas themselves are amongst the best in the world.

Gourmet's Paradise
We have just had a wonderful week skiing from the Chalet Gaillard. Very comfortable, sunny, reception room with a south west facing balcony. Lucy and Leo looked after us beautifully and created imaginative and delicious dinners. Five star quality! A bonus was the heated boot room. Recommended for those who enjoy skiing and good food.

Susan W (Trip Advisor, March 2017, Chalet Gaillard)

Our group just enjoyed a wonderful weeks skiing at this fantastic Chalet. Very comfortable, clean and in a great location. Hosts (Lee and Lou) were excellent. Food (breakfast and 4 course evening meal) was to a very high standard, better than all previous ski holidays I have been on.

D Harris (Trip Advisor, March 2017, Chalet La Fugue)

What a great holiday! Chalet La Fugue is fantastic, with lovely rooms, views and location. Mike and Ali at SkiVive make the booking process very easy and were very helpful and always on hand throughout the trip. Lee and Louise (our chalet hosts) were lovely - the service was excellent and the food even better and everyone's individual needs were accommodated.

Harrisonprobert (Trip Advisor, March 2017, Chalet La Fugue)

Amazing trip
Chalet La Fugue is a fantastic place to stay. Your hosts will meet you and help to take your things across the piste
The Chalet was clean and the food amazing. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts.

MikeL (Trip Advisor, March 2017, Chalet La Fugue)

The house wine is very good, although if you really enjoy your wine do try some of the specially selected bottles you can buy from the hosts.
Ski Vive's owners are also great to deal with. Very helpful advising on transfers as well as the best places to ski and eat. All in all a great trip and I'm sure I'll stay here again next year

MikeL (Trip Advisor, March 2017, Chalet La Fugue)

Loved it!
I cannot fault the chalet hosts Lou and Lee who where so warm and friendly and made huge efforts to prepare gluten free and dairy free cakes and meals for me, in addition to catering for everyone else. Excellent communication with the management in advance to ensure this.

spicescience (Trip Advisor, March 2017, Chalet La Fugue)

Amazing food and loads of it. The house wine (both red and white) is fab. Enjoyed sitting in front of the open fire, and also on the balcony soaking up the amazing views.

leerogers (Trip Advisor, February 2017, Chalet La Fugue)

We came back this year. It's still great. Excellent food and wine again, and friendly chalet hosts. You can ski from the bottom of the staircase to the Chaudanne and it's not far back from the Rond-Point after apres-ski drinks.

Chris S (Trip Advisor, February 2017, Chalet La Fugue)

Great ski holiday with Ski Vive
Thanks to the staff and management of Chalet La Fugue and Ski Vive for organizing a great stay in Méribel this year. Almost too much great food ! Delicious tea cakes and breakfasts, fun and warm staff always ready to assist with our needs and reservations. Wonderful fireplace too. Great location.

Jennifer T (Trip Advisor, February 2017, Chalet La Fugue)

Christmas in Meribel - Delightful Chalet situated just above the town centre.
The management by Mike and Ali was excellent, nothing too much trouble and little things like having your skis and boots waiting for you in the chalet plus your abonnement makes such a difference.

amcunderwood (Trip Advisor, January 2017, Chalet La Fugue)

Great "Proper" Old Fashioned Chalet a stone's throw from the piste
Brilliant chalet experience, with wonderful food

London (Trip Advisor, January 2017, Chalet La Fugue)

Chalet: comfortable and stylish. View: Mont Vallon at sunset. Food: AMAZING really carefully thought out, a different cuisine every night. Hosts: really friendly and helpful (also made good cocktails).

marionleeper (Trip Advisor, April 2017, Chalet Clementine)

Organising the holiday: through Mike - couldn't have been easier, very friendly and knowledgeable. Made me realise you should always book a skiing holiday through someone who loves skiing

marionleeper (Trip Advisor, April 2017, Chalet Clementine)

The chalet itself was perfect - a lovely open living room with roaring fire, beautiful bedrooms, all with en suite bathrooms and lovely views and a fantastic outdoor terrace where we generally gathered for lunch in the sunshine!

LizzyStanley (Trip Advisor, April 2017, Chalet Clementine)

Lovely chalet, good food, great hosts. - When the prospect of cake tempts you back early from the skiing, you know you've found a good one. Equally important - the red wine was a couple of notches up from what one would expect in a chalet.

Philip W (Trip Advisor, March 2017, Chalet Clementine)

From the booking process through to the end of the trip everything was fantastic. The best bit of the chalet experience was our wonderful hosts, James and Claire. They worked so hard just to make sure we had the best experience possible. They were so friendly, and kind. They answered all our questions with a smile, and their cooking was absolutely delicious. I don't think you could get better hosts! You guys rock! x x

carolinelucymcmillan (Trip Advisor, March 2017, Chalet Clementine)

Lovely chalet, with handy parking, very convenient for the lifts, restaurants and bars of Meribel Mottaret, and access to some fantastic skiing.

Philippa s (Trip Advisor, March 2017, Chalet Clementine)

Great food, hosts and customer service. Warm roomy lounge and dinning area, nicely furnished and decorated.

Christopher O (Trip Advisor, March 2017, Chalet Clementine)

Chalet Clementine is the best chalet we have stayed in over many years of skiing holidays.Fantastic cordon bleu food. Good location,a short walk to lifts and in a quiet scenic part of Mottaret.

Elspeth M (Trip Advisor, February 2017, Chalet Clementine)

This is a really comfortable chalet with excellent location in Mottaret ideal for the slopes.The food was absolutely delicious and the Ski Vive (drink as much as you like) chalet wine was up with the very best.

Tim J (Trip Advisor, February 2017, Chalet Clementine)

Fantastic service and delicious food. Chalet Gaillard is about 200 metres from the ski lifts. Our hosts, Leo and Lucy, were amazingly friendly, service minded and made us feel at home. They made us fantastic food and afternoon cakes to die for.

Rimas112 (Trip Advisor, March 2017, Chalet Gaillard)

Extremely well catered, including a gluten free diet. Location is good. The chalet is ideally suited for two families or eight adults in our opinion

Jac385 (Trip Advisor, February 2017, Chalet Gaillard)

Spectacular meals and perfectly presented and tasty canapés every night, and the wine included in the price flowed very well during the stay

MichaelL73 (Trip Advisor, February 2017, Chalet Gaillard)

The level of care and comfort we received along with the standard of catering food was excellent.

Andy M (Trip Advisor, February 2017, Chalet Gaillard)

This was the perfect ski apartment for our family of 5. The apartment was spotless and had everything we needed including a well-equipped kitchen. Located right in the centre of Meribel with a one minute walk to the escalator from where you ski right down to the lifts and ski school meeting points - couldn't have been easier. Despite being so central, we didn't hear any noise at night so found it very peaceful.

Lazybones (Trip Advisor, February 2017, Apartment Gentiane)

We were thrilled to find such a perfect place for 2 of us to stay that was so central and close to everything we needed. Ski Vive were so helpful and accommodating, we would definitely book with them again.

Sally S (Trip Advisor, February 2017, Apartment Gentiane)

A great apartment for four in a great location. Two minutes walk to get on to the slopes. A great variety of eating establishments on the doorstep. Lovely view of some pistes from the balcony.The apartment well presented with a good wee kitchen.

brownstu (Trip Advisor, February 2017, Apartment Gentiane)

Very comfortable, clean and warm apartment with a balcony which we enjoyed many aperitif on.
We would definitely recommend Ski Vive as a company and would definitely stay in Gentiane again.

amylouisa (Trip Advisor, February 2017, Apartment Gentiane)

Perfect bijoux apartment - This was our second time with Ski Vive and we would thoroughly recommend it for a quiet stay in a great location.

Victoria (Trip Advisor, April 2016, Apartment Gentiane)

Perfect central apartment for those looking to be in the heart of Meribel with easy access to the slopes. Every amenity you could ask for and the master bedroom is just beautiful.
