Extensive skiing, relaxed atmosphere and attractive surroundings.
Méribel  is at the heart of the three valleys ski area. It is ideally positioned for access to the largest ski area in the world.  

The resort's collection of high-tech chairlifts and gondolas provide immediate access to either side of the valley and links to Courchevel, La Tania, Val Thorens and Les Menuires.

Nearby Mottaret is a series of low level buildings, almost all with doorstep skiing. A shuttle bus links the two villages every 30 minutes, 9am-8pm and then every hour 8pm - 12pm.
