Meribel

An upmarket chalet-style resort in the heart of Les 3 Vallées.

Located in the beautiful Les Allues valley in the heart of the world’s largest ski centre, Meribel is a friendly resort, ideal for families and groups with skiers of varying abilities. The resort not only offers stunning mountain scenery and traditional wood-clad chalet-style buildings, but also great restaurants, nightlife and a vast ski area. Linked to Courchevel and Val Thorens, Meribel gives skiers and snowboarders access to 600 km of pistes and a huge variety of off piste options too.

Comprised of several satellite villages, accommodation extends all the way from Mottaret, through Meribel, into Les Allues and continues all the way down to Brides les Bains at the bottom of the valley. Accommodation ranges from hotels and self-catering apartments to superb luxury chalets. Whilst many people choose to stay in Meribel-Village, there are a number of alternatives available. These include the original hamlet of Mussillon, upmarket Belvedere, ski-in/ski-out Mottaret and the traditional villages of Les Allues and Brides les Bains.

With an impressive 319 pistes and 200 lifts, Les 3 Vallées is a snow lovers paradise.

Leaving aside the rest of the Three Valleys, Meribel’s local slopes are still extensive and two snow parks set the benchmark in the whole of Europe for freestylers. From mogul runs and steep descents to gentle cruising runs and nursery slopes, Meribel has something to offer every type of skier. The views from the Mont du Vallon are spectacular and if you’re feeling adventurous there is plenty of off-piste to discover too.

After a day on the slopes, Meribel’s legendary nightlife is not to be missed. Lively apres-ski bars and clubs with live music, themed nights and DJs provide entertainment into the early hours of the morning. Alternatively, head back to your luxury chalet and relax in front of the log fire or hot tub. Children can enjoy ice skating, bowling or climbing at the Olympic Centre and there is a plethora of other activities on offer from pleasant walks and snowmobile tours to paragliding.
