  • Meribel town is more like a very large village. All the chalets, thanks to the Scottish colonel Peter Lindsay, are very attractive. They are built from local Savoyard materials and have wood cladding. Peter Lindsay discovered Meribel in 1938. He was exploring the Savoie area for a future ski lift project. Having looked at all 3 Valleys including the Val Thorens Belleville valley and the Courchevel valley he decided on Meribel. He then helped develop it after the war ended into a major French ski resort. The mountains are skiable on both sides of the Meribel valley. Meribel also now has a great selection of ski schools, restaurants, bars – nightlife, plus other winter sports activities. All on its doorstep! Meribel is a truly superb resort for a ski holiday.

  • Many of the fully catered Meribel chalets are located in the best prime locations. Quite a few are within walking distance of the piste. Some are actually ski in ski out chalets, being located right on the piste itself. Many of the chalets in and around Meribel town now also offer a private chauffeur service to and from the ski slopes for their guests.

  • Prices are usually higher in the town centre but for convenience, the locality cannot be beaten. From the main town area you can ski or take the free Meribus to Chaudanne ski lift centre. From there it is only 15 minutes skiing to the Courchevel valley or the Belleville valley. For Courchevel take the Saulire gondola. For the Belleville valley take the Tougnete gondola or chairlift. This ski route gives you a choice of skiing to Mottaret, Les Menuires, St Martin or Val Thorens.

  • Meribel is located at the very heart of the trois valleys (3 valleys) and it is only 45 minutes skiing to Val Thorens centre! At 1450m it is one of  France’s highest ski resorts. Meribel gets snow that is almost guaranteed all of the winter ski season. It also has 100’s of snow cannons on the lower pistes to ensure good snow from early December when the lifts normally open. The snow usually lasts until the last weekend of April.

  • There are over 20 Meribel restaurants to choose from. Many will be found within walking distance of your chalet. We have traditional Savoyard restaurants, Italian, fast food, pizzas and even a top class authentic Indian restaurant.

  • Meribel main town has a superb free and very regular shuttle bus service. Named the Meribus, you can travel all over the resort very easily. Expect some delays if we get heavy snow, however. This is usually due to private cars being stuck on our mountain roads in the snow without snow chains. Note that in school holidays they do get extremely crowded at peak times so allow extra time for your journey.

  • Meribel town also  hosts several of the top  apres ski venues in France. The Rond Point and La Folie Douce are both famous the world over. Also jacks Bar near Chaudanne is now very popular, especially with chalet staff. ( Note: I hear it might be moving location in 2019 !)

    Meribel also  boasts a great nightlife. Jacks Bar, The Pub and La Taverne all feature live music. Both nightclubs, O’Sullivans (Formerly Dicks T Bar ) and the Loft (French disco) are also in the main town area.
