Meribel Ski Resort, France
If there is any part of the French Alps that is really British it would be Meribel. The British helped create the resort and to this day is one of the most popular ski resorts for the Brits. you can understand why us Brits keep coming back to this beautiful ski resort year on year. Nestled right in the middle of the 3 Valleys ski area it is quite possibly the best location to skiing in the World!
You see the 3 Valleys – actually 4 valleys now since they added the Orelle valley – is the largest ski area in the World, and has one of the best lift networks in Europe, tough to beat!
Incidentally if you would like to find out about the History of Meribel and how the ski resort all started you should check out our History of Meribel page.
Like most French ski resorts Meribel has grown over the years however they have made sure the additional buildings are all sympathetic to the resorts architecture. You will not see any tall concrete blocks of apartments here!
Meribel is like a large group of chocolate box wooden Chalets sprinkled over the base of the valley, a very nice place to be.
So it goes without saying that wherever you stay in Meribel the building should look the part.
Then there is the skiing, with the easiest links to Courchevel, Les Menuires and Val Thorens you don’t need to stay in your own valley, go and explore!
