Lively & attractive resort at the very heart of Europe’s biggest ski area

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. It's set in the very heart 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. There is of course some amazing skiing in the valley itself including the Women's Downhill run and up at the Mont du Vallon. Méribel centre is one of the area's liveliest resorts with a great selection of bars and restaurants. We also have an all inclusive hotel in the satellite village of Mottaret which is just above Méribel and located on the piste. This really is an excellent all round resort that offers something for everyone!
