Boua has a bijou front room that perfectly compliments the unbeatable location (the pic of the lifts and piste below is taken from the front door). A firm favourite with returning VIP SKI guests, Boua is the epitome of ski in ski out convenience, just metres from the ski school meeting point and the Chaudanne lift area.

    Travelled with a group of friends who have shared many ski holidays in the past and we all agreed this was the best to date! The service level is superb, the chalet absolutely lovely, the food incredible and plenty of it. Unlimited wine, hot tub and ski in- ski out all made this a wonderful ski holiday. And last but by no means least our chalet hosts Gareth and Josh were the best - extremely nice, friendly, polite, helpful and incredibly accommodating - they made our week. Highly recommended.

    From start to finish an excellent week, from the beautiful chalet in an excellent location, to the amazing food, nothing was too much trouble for our chalet hosts Josh & Gareth. Without a doubt the best ski holiday ever. VIP will be our 1st choice next year. Thank you.

    We all had a fantastic time at chalet Boua. Josh and Gareth could not have been better hosts and were also very flexible if we had additional requirements. The foods was brilliant and wine allowance very generous. The location was also unbeatable, I would definitely recommend this chalet to others and we are also planning a return trip ourselves. The tea in bed is also a nice touch!

    From the moment you step onto the bus with fruit and water provided you know this is a good company. Very friendly and efficient team at every stage. And Refuge Boua exceeds expectations. The chalet team Gareth and Josh are passionate hosts. From the warm reception to the amazing cuisine they want it to be only the best. They have a passion for cooking and working as a team they manage to produce four course meals that would do a 5* restaurant proud. And nothing is too much trouble for them from tea in bed in the morning to a fresh baked cake at tea time. And the Refuge Boua is ideally situated right by the central lifts a 60 second ski away. All in all a fantastic holiday package. Thank you Josh and Gareth it's been a pleasure staying with you. And thank you VIP Ski for your friendly and efficient organisation from booking thru ski delivery to farewell.

    Great chalet location, right next to the main lift area and a very short walk to the main town of Meribel. Josh and Gareth have been excellent hosts, genuinely nothing is too much trouble. It's rather disappointing that VIP use the language 'this is a real skiers chalet' as a reason for the Boua to not carry the same internal standard as that of other VIP accommodation. Whilst it's not a disaster by any means inside simple things such as wardrobe space, enough seats to sit everyone for dinner comfortably, terribly steep steps to bedrooms and tired lounge furniture should be improved to maintain the VIP brand. It certainly wouldn't put me off coming with VIP again but things need to improve to be on a par with other operators in Meribel. Just a note for the future make sure the beer fridge is full all the time, have slippers available on the first day and put some racks in the boot room for snowboards.

    Great hosts, Josh & Gareth, thank you. Location excellent for lifts & town. Shame about penny pinching around ski carriage weight allowance, which left bad taste in mouth and may be a reason for not booking again with VIP - pls take notice, if you have ever weighed skis, poles & ski bag, you will find they come to more than 7 kg guys!!

    Gareth and Josh have been superb. They have handled every request and provided all the information we needed to have a great holiday. The service provided by VIP differs by virtue of many small touches. Fresh fruit which is actually fresh, a good honesty bar with a range of choices, great wine with a rose option and a boot room that works. The stand out memory of the chalet will be the food, the cakes and the hosts. The chalet location can't be beaten and the quality of the interior is high. We will return.

    Comfortable chalet in a good position, our two hosts were polite gentlemen with excellent cooking skills. Chalet needs a guitar, tambourine and maracas so guests can explore their inner musical needs while enjoying a ski holiday. Chalet also needs more artwork, ideally yaks or llama paintings or prints.

    Thank you to Gareth and Josh for looking after us this week. The location of the chalet is as it says on the website, ski in/ski out and well located with a 10 minute walk into the centre of Meribel. Our hosts couldn't have been more helpful. The standard of food has been excellent. The current photos on the website do not do the Chalet justice as it is far bigger and better than described. We have had a great time, thanks VIP
