Welcome to Meribel

Nestled in the beautiful Alpine valley of Les Allues, Méribel is a renowned ski resort where you can experience that quintessential ski holiday. Stay in a traditional wooden chalet, admire stunning mountain scenery, ski one of the biggest domains in the world and let your hair down at one of the famous après-ski bars. 

The Méribel Valley is one of the most popular destinations for British skiers (the resort was, in fact, founded by a British Colonel, Peter Lindsay, in 1938). Consisting of picture-postcard chalets and chalet-style apartment buildings and hotels, Méribel has retained all the charm of a traditional mountain village with its wood and stone buildings and forest setting.

Fast, modern ski lifts offer easy access to the Méribel ski area (150km of pistes from 1450m up to 1700m) and the 3 Valleys (Méribel is linked to Courchevel and Val Thorens, giving you access to 600km of pistes). Méribel Centre is the largest of several villages in the resort and is home to the main shopping area and the greatest selection of restaurants.
