Luxury Chalets in Meribel

About Meribel

One of, if not, the most popular destination for the British skier, Meribel is a fashionable choice. Sitting in the middle of the vast Three Valleys ski region, the south facing resort basks in sunshine. This can mean that during the late season slopes can look a little green, however, with Courchevel and Val Thorens next door you will still find snow on the pistes. There is a large selection of catered luxury chalets to choose from, with some great ski in/out options.

Meribel has everything you want from a luxury French alpine resort. This picturesque village is perched in the centre of the renowned Three Valleys, boasting over 600km of elegantly designed pistes, accompanied with jaw-dropping vistas in every direction, this exclusive alpine resort has all the trimmings. 180 state-of-the-art lifts effortlessly connect these super resorts with a sleek smoothness that allows you to maximise your time racking up the miles on the descent.

With a huge variety of skiing at hand within the Three Valleys, there is ample potential for skiers of all abilities. If you’re looking for an early or late season trip, do not be dismayed by the resort’s south facing direction, the heavily fortified snow guns dotted throughout the valley make it is easier than ever to jump from one resort to another to reach the freshest powder of the day. Whilst Meribel sits at 1450m, there are various lifts within the town which make mince-meat of the surrounding ascent, up to dizzying heights of 3,200m.

For those looking out for some aperitifs, digestifs and everything in between, this exclusive alpine resort certainly caters par excellence. Sat just above Meribel Village is the infamous La Folie Douce, where skiers, non-skiers and people of all ages come to let their hair down, supported with some of the best saxophonists, DJs, dancers and sound systems the Alps can offer. Few come to see what all the fuss is about without spending the rest of their afternoons dancing on tabletops with champagne being shared around as if it were fondue. La Folie Douce, coupled with the Rond Point gives the avid après fan more than enough to get their teeth into. There is plenty of other choice of lively and tasteful après ski available though, do not despair. Meribel is also a food-lover’s dream with a variety of gourmet restaurants to hand, although the fine-dining catering included within our luxury chalets often hinders many guests’ quests to discover new spots further than their dining rooms. Or, if you are looking for a quieter family holiday Meribel village is a good choice which is just far enough away from the main hub of Meribel.

The town of Meribel is a skiers paradise, with its roots dating back to the 1930s, it can claim to be one of the oldest French alpine resorts, and its charm and beauty still reflect this. Various runs cut through the town, enabling most of our chalets to offer a care-free ski-in ski-out experience. Horse-drawn carts deliver guests to their weather-worn, timber-clad chalets which adorn the winter-wonderland streets. Meribel is an impressive example of how contemporary has been exquisitely blended with traditional, the rustic ambience is ever-disarming, yet modern-day creature comforts also pervade the resorts everyday life. As illustrated in the extravagantly luxurious chalets on offer. The style of architecture throughout the town has been beautifully maintained and yet we have world-class chalets complete with hammams, cinema rooms, climbing walls and private gyms, the temptation to never leave your accommodation has never been so strong.
