Meribel Village: 1400m

Situated in the heart of the Three Valleys ski domaine which is made up of 8 resorts: Hugely popular stylish resort.

Tucked within the heart of the Three Valleys in France, sits Meribel, one of the most loved resorts with skiers and snowboarders from the UK. Being such a big resort, a holiday to Meribel is suited to anybody, whether you are a family, a couple, or a group looking for a lively stay.

Méribel Village is the most recent addition to the Méribel Valley. In the early 1990s, the site was scattered with sheepfolds. It has since become the setting for a lovely hamlet, designed in the purest Savoyard tradition, with its chalets and barn renovations, its chapel, its bread oven, shops and terraces. Built around its delightfully sunny square, Méribel Village is linked to the Méribel ski area and the 3 Valleys via a chairlift, the “Télésiège du Golf”. Ski back to the village at the end of the day along the blue slope “Le Lapin”. In the evening, a free shuttle bus service takes partygoers to Méribel centre in just a few minutes.


MÉRIBEL-MOTTARET

The wooden clad chalets and apartment buildings blend into the natural surroundings and there are marvellous views of Mont Vallon which rises to a height of 3000m above the resort. The Tueda Natural Reserve is part of the Vanoise Natural Park and offers wonderful cross country trails of ski pistes and hiking trails.

Méribel les Hauts never fails to charm thanks to its privileged setting amongst the pine forests and the beauty of its wood and stone architecture.

MÉRIBEL LES ALLUES

1100-2950m
