The beating heart of the 3 Valleys, Meribel is the centre-point of the largest and oft-argued best ski area in the world. Meribel is one of the most popular destinations for the Brit skier for a good many reasons. First and foremost is the ski area which attracts vast flocks of winter sports enthusiasts every single year. Not only is there something for everyone, I’d argue that in terms of skiing, there is everything for everyone.
For beginners, intermediates and experts, the 3 Valleys gets 5 stars for every category in both quantity and quality. Meribel also has a vast range of accommodation, offering a range of properties for budget, mid-range and luxury budgets. Meribel is one of the most aesthetically pleasing “mega resorts” thanks to very strict building regulations that insist all buildings are built in the traditional French alpine style. For those looking for a “pretty, chocolate box resort” look no further. The next arrow in the Meribel quiver is the Apres-ski and nightlife which is as good as you’ll find in France. Whether it be the brand new Folie Douce franchise or the tried and tested Rond-Point or “Ronnie” to its many fans, Meribel is one of the very few French resorts that can hold a candle to the Austrian competition.
