The small family-run ski company, Edel Ski, is offering a 30-percent discount on all stays thoughout the winter season if booked before Dec. 31, 2009.

Edel Ski runs two self-catered properties in Meribel: Chez Leone is a traditional two-bedroom stone house that can sleep six/seven; Petit Hibou, a one-bedroom studio (which is on the top floor of the same house) sleeps four/five. The two properties can be rented together to sleep 10 guests.

A week at Chez Leone at the height of the winter season, from Saturday March 13, would  normally be £1300, but with a 30-percent saving is reduced to £910. Alternatively, a week at Petit Hibou is reduced from £1050 to £735.

Situated in Meribel Mussillon, a quiet little corner of the famous resort, both properties are located near to the public parking area of Mussillon and 200 metres from the main supermarket and Dicks T. Bar. It is just a two-minute drive to the centre of Meribel and the ski lifts.

Chez Leone has a very homley feel, unlike standard rental accommodation, and is comfortably furnished with many books and DVDs as well as Sky, games and a log fire. It is ideal for large famililes or for people who are looking for a chalet-type holiday without having to pay the price of a catered chalet.

Petit Hibou is a studio apartment for a small family or two couples. It has a very clean and modern feel and panormic mountain views.

Both properties boast unlimited free parking, plenty of hot water, and a heating system with radiators and thermostat. Further optional equipment includes a cot, a high chair, a second small chair, as well as all the sheets, towels and kitchen linen. There is no washing machine in the house, but guests are welcome to make a request to the Gardienne to have some items washed in the chalet's laundry.

Edel Ski has run a catered chalet business in Meribel since 1994. They have an extensive knowledge of Meribel and the ski related services provided. They can give advise on ski schools, ski hire, and transfers.

In addition Edel Ski are very flexible on changeover day and would be happy to have you leave your luggage and get an extra days skiing or even leave a day later if no one is booked for the following week.
