Meribel

The charming, beautiful and lively French ski resort of Meribel sits in the Three Valleys ski area at a base-altitude of 1400 metres. With slopes around the resort running up to a dazzling 3230, skiers here enjoy good snow coverage all winter long. Meribel is an architecturally attractive resort sympathetically constructed in local wood and stone, with a pleasant atmosphere, family-friendly facilities and lively après ski scene.

 

                For families with children the resort offers a wealth of ski in/out chalet and hotels to consider, with accommodation options to suit a wide range of budgets. The gentle, tree-lined slopes in the Altiport are excellent for youngsters and there’s a superb range of terrain for kids to improve on in comfort. In-house childcare options are readily available, as well as external nanny services and children’s ski gardens. Off the snow, parents can keep the kids happy with a wide range of non-ski activities including swimming, cinema and sports centre.

 

                Groups of adults looking for varied and lively nightlife need look no further. With some of the best après ski in the Alps taking place in the new piste-side Folie Douce bar, and myriad bars and clubs to visit down in town as the evening progresses, Meribel’s nightlife is eclectic, lively and varied and live music is popular in bars across town.

 

                From the gentle green runs in the Altiport to the rolling blue and red runs above resort, the Meribel valley itself offers terrain ideally suited to beginner and intermediate skiers. Advanced skiers can pay a visit to one of Meribel’s outstanding terrain parks, or put fresh tracks in the snow elsewhere across the 600 kilometres of terrain available in the mighty Three Valleys.

 

                Meribel has a reputation for offering luxury accommodation and it’s richly deserved – some of the Alps’ finest 5* and 6* chalets and hotels are located in exclusive parts of this superb resort. But Meribel is a large town and boasts a range of accommodation options which is hard to find elsewhere. Whether you’re making your own way to resort or looking for a package including travel, and whether you’re looking for something cheap and cheerful or top-end luxury, Meribel will undoubtedly have accommodation options to meet your group’s requirements.

 

                And with four European airports within easy reach, access to Meribel is swift and easy. Visitors flying into France can choose from Chambery airport (90 minutes), Geneva airport (2.5 – 3 hours), Grenoble airport (2.5 – 3 hours) or Lyon airport (3 – 3.5 hours) as their arrival points. Moutiers train station sits within a half hour drive from resort too, and with direct services from London St Pancras the ski train is also a popular method of travel.
