Meribel Luxury Chalets

Three Valleys, France

Resort Information
View Accommodation


Filled with luxury ski chalets, Meribel nestles in the middle of the Three Valleys and is one of France's most attractive ski resorts, and with a lively village centre, people are drawn back to Meribel year after year.

The mountain has been a hive of development activity recently; the 3 stage Plattieres gondola linking Meribel-Mottaret with Val Thorens has been replaced by the first 10 seater telecabine in the 3 Valleys and reaches the very top in just 19 minutes. The blue 'Martre' run back down into Mottaret, always a little tricky and congested at the end of the day, has also been re-graded to make life easier for all.

The second phase of the new Saulire Express gondola has also been put in place and takes skiers from Chaudanne at the very bottom of Meribel to the top of Saulire – a vertical rise of 1,265m - in just 12 minutes. The lift is capable of carrying 2,400 skiers per hour, vastly reducing waiting times and lift queues.

Although how many people will make it to the top is another question particularly at a certain time of day! A brand new Folie Douce restaurant and bar will be enticing skiers in at mid-station for some serious après ski in a way that only Folie Douce can.

Méribel actually consists of several areas:

Méribel Les Allues is the main town, normally just referred to as Méribel.

Approx. 2 miles out of town is Méribel VillageThis village is very small and up market with luxury ski chalets and apartments served by its own chairlift to Méribel Altiport. (Perfect for total beginners). It has one very friendly Pub, two excellent restaurants, one ski/board shop, one supermarket, and a superb bakery. A free bus service connects with the main town.

Raffort village is also just out of town, with one restaurant and a gondola connection to the main resort. Raffort is mainly privately run luxury chalets that usually have their own minibus service.

Méribel Mottaret, usually just called Mottaret is a satellite resort higher up the mountain. A good choice for very early or late season holidays. It has a very good choice of restaurants and several bars.

The principal Méribel settlement is simply called Méribel and sprawls up a west-facing hillside from 1,400m to 1,750m. Méribel Centre (1,450m) is the commercial core – a one-street village with the tourist office as its focal point. It has a number of boutiques and souvenir shops beyond the usual sports shops, and one main supermarket.

The western side of Méribel culminates in a long skiable ridge, which separates it from the beautiful Belleville Valley and the resorts of Val Thorens, Les Menuires and St Martin de Belleville. The eastern side rises to the rocky 2,738-m summit of Saulire and the Col de la Loze at 2,274m. Beyond lies La Tania, the Bozel Valley and Courchevel. At the head of Les Allues Valley rises Mont du Vallon (2,952m) – the most easterly of the horseshoe of 3,300-m peaks accessed from Méribel and Val Thorens.

Jack's Bar Meribel, close to the piste puts on a popular après-ski happy hour.

The Rond Point is well known for its crowd surfing antics, superb value happy hours, and its lively and enthusiastic bar staff. The 'Ronnie' as it is affectionately known is great for people watching and dancing in ski boots - ski down from here in the dark once après finishes at 7pm.

Meribel's own Folie Douce opened it's doors in winter 2012/2013. The famed apres ski bar, known for pumping the music high up the mountain for the party goers among you.

Bar au Vin is without a doubt one of Meribel's finest. This tiny, French run wine bar is discreet for a romantic drink or a chance to experience 'real' France and sample some of the most delicious and inexpensive wines.

Dick's Tea-Bar, a branch of the Val d'Isère original, is also extremely popular. The other main late closer is the French run The Loft.

Méribel has a good number of fantastic restaurants to choose from:

Chez Kiki is the most famous restaurant in Meribel. Monsieur KiKi himself still cooks the steaks here to perfection over the fire.

Le Bo A Mil is a traditional Savoyard restaurant in Meribel Village and serves fantastic fondues, raclettes and onion soups!

A small and atmospheric Savoyard restaurant at Le Plateau, near the top of Meribel. The Cro Magnon offers great service and big portions at reasonable prices!
