Méribel lies in the Les Allues Valley at the centre of the world’s largest ski area, les Trois Vallees, giving access to over 600km of piste and unlimited off-piste.
As well as the three main resorts, Méribel, Méribel Village and Méribel-Mottaret, the valley also includes a number of traditional villages.
Together they form one of the most popular destinations for British skiers (the resort was, in fact, founded by a British Colonel, Peter Lindsay, in 1938).
The resort’s perennial popularity is due not only to its extensive skiing, but also to the attractive chalet-style architecture. Unlike many purpose-built ski resort Méribel has retained its Alpine charm and consists entirely of chalet-style wood and stone buildings.
