The Hotel L'Eterlou offers comfortable accommodation, great facilities, excellent cuisine and is located opposite the Hotel La Chaudanne, connected by an underground corridor. After a day of exploring the extensive Three Valleys ski area, you'll have plenty of opportunity to recharge and refuel at the wellness area and bar.

Alpine restaurant 

Experience the tastes of hearty mountain food in the L'Eterlou's mountain restaurant. Featuring a warm, cosy wooden interior, the Grange Restaurant specialises in family cooking, fresh seasonal products and Savoyard specialities. The restaurant offers cuisine to suit all tastes and also has a terrace that provides fantastic views of the mountains.

Soothing spa

Take in the snowy scenery from the warmth of the outdoor, heated swimming pool. Or add some bubbles and take a moment to relax in the outdoor jacuzzi, which also provides mountain views. If you'd prefer to avoid the cold altogether, than you'll be able to loosen up inside in either the sauna or hammam, or both - whatever takes your fancy.

Charm and authenticity 

Taking inspiration from traditional mountain ski chalets, each room provides an authentic, winter atmosphere with wooden décor and warm colours. 


  • 600km of marked pistes

Méribel is set in the centre of the Three Valleys, Europe's largest linked ski area with endless skiing opportunities with easy access to the resorts of Courchevel and Val Thorens in the neighbouring valleys. The beautiful wooden chalet buildings of Méribel make this one of one of France's most attractive ski resorts and one of the most popular. Meribel has been awarded the Family Plus label which makes this resort an excellent choice for families as many of the hotels, restaurants and ski areas have kept children in mind.

If speeding down competition worthy slopes isn't your thing there are also plenty of cruisy blue and red runs throughout the resort. The fun zones in Méribel have been upgraded with the new 'Bump'N'Jump' fun zone with three separate runs with various jumps, boxes and boardercross sections -  accessible via the Legends chairlift and Arpasson ski lift.
