LUXURY SKI HOLIDAYS IN MÉRIBEL
Located in the middle of the Three Valleys - a ski area that boasts to be the largest in the world with over 600 kilometres of pistes - Méribel really does have something for everyone, a great family resort, fun nightlife for those who like to party and about all levels of skiers are catered for. There is a 25m swimming pool, gym, ice rink, cinema and more. Beginner's will find that Méribel is a great place to learn to ski, with a gentle nursery slope through the forest reserved especially for first timers. Then you can progress onto the green slopes of the altiport. The Méribel valley is in the centre of all the action. At the head of the Méribel valley you'll find Mont Du Vallon, at a height of 2,952m, the views are stunning and the ski down even more so.
The valley contains the DC and Moon Park, two of the best snowparks in Europe. With a beginner jump line, to a superpipe, and everything in between. Méribel has much more to offer - mysterious and beautiful forests, wooded chalets and sumptuous panoramas. Méribel Les Allues, normally just referred to as Méribel, is nothing less than a combination of elegance, tradition and modernity. A must: Take the Olympic chairlift and enjoy the the most beautiful panoramic views in Les Trois Vallées from the Roc de Fer peak: a 360 degree sweep over the summits of Mont Blanc, Pierra Menta, Grande Casse, Dent de Burgin, Les Ecrins, Les Aiguilles d’Arves… and a large part of Les 3 Vallées ski area!
RESTAURANTS & BARS IN MÉRIBEL
L'Ekrin, a Michelin-starred restaurant in the very heart of Méribel, is undoubtedly a venue not to be missed. The mountain restaurant Le Clos Bernard is the perfect place to rest - recharge your batteries whilst enjoying marvelous food in a beautiful setting. For partying and après ski the place to be is of course La Folie Douce (from 2pm).
