Méribel is nestled in the Les Allues Valley at the heart of the World’s largest ski area, les Trois Vallées, giving access to over 600km of piste and almost unlimited off-piste terrain. The resort has been popular with British skiers since it was founded by Colonel Peter Lindsay, with the first lift opening above Les Allues in 1938. The attractive traditional chalet architecture Meribel boasts makes it a stunning location ski in, with a varied selection of accommodation to suit most budgets and tastes. There is an active and vibrant apres-ski scene, for those wishing to unwind after a day on the slopes, along with a plethora of other activities to keep you (and the family) entertained during your stay.
