Based at the heart of the Three Valleys, Méribel is a popular resort, especially with British holidaymakers, and its easy to see why. With Courchevel, La Tania and Val Thorens only a lift or two away, Méribel makes the perfect base from which to explore all of the ski area. Then, once you’ve hung up your skis, there’s a lively après scene which will have you dancing in your ski boots before you can say ‘sante’!

Meribel has a large variety of pistes, boasting something for everyone, including two parks: the large and advanced DC park in Mottaret and the Elements Park in Méribel Centre. And with its situation on the mountain, it enjoys tons of sun.

Méribel consists of a number of different villages each with different charms. The central hub is known as Méribel Centre is a charming village that has luckily escaped the high-rise concrete buildings of other resorts due to strict building regulations. It is the largest village in the valley and is home to the main shopping and après scene.

Higher up is Méribel 1600 and Méribel-Mottaret. Mottaret is great if you’re looking for some great off-piste access. Then slightly lower is Méribel Village, which is great if you’re looking for somewhere a bit quieter that still has all the access to the skiing. Les Allues is even further down the mountain and is where many locals reside. As it does have a gondola running up to Méribel Centre, it can be a good budget option.
