About Meribel

As part of the esteemed Trois Vallees area, it shares a large lift system with neighbouring Courchevel to offer an extensive network of trails for bikers and walkers which is open in summer. The resort also offers a heap of fun mountain activities, in fact, more than you can shake a Nordic walking stick at!

Meribel is sat within the protected Vanoise National Park; and aside from lots of good shops and bars in town, it has some pretty amazing alpine scenery to look at and plenty of wildlife to spot as you travel around the mountains on bike or on foot.

Where is it?

Meribel is in the central-southern French Alps and enjoys plenty of hot sunshine. It’s about 6 hours south east of Paris if you’re driving, as many guests do, so allow about 8-9 hours driving on the French side and maybe stop at an hotel and see some sights along the way.

If you’re flying with us, then we fly into Geneva and the transfer is just under 2 and half hours. But you can fly into Grenoble or Chambery which is just over an hour away.

Bike Heaven

There are 100’s of kilometres of trails to explore in the extensive Trois Vallees; a mountain playground accessed via a gondola and chair lifts, specially adapted for bikes. The lift pass is included in our Free Active Pack, for all our guests.

We stock a range of the latest bikes from Specialized which are also free for guests to use. Expect easy cruising rides to more technical Cross Country or Downhill itineraries.

All tastes are catered for, from expert downhill charger to family cyclist who can enjoy the thrill of trail riding in stunning alpine surroundings, then riding he lift back to the top!

Walking and Hiking

The Vanoise National Park is home to some spectacular scenery and a rare diversity of wildlife. While hiking you’ll come across Marmottes, the Alpine Ibex, deer, squirrels and eagles. Use the lifts to reach high vantage points easily and cover many miles by foot or by bike. Have lunch at any number of mountain restaurants and enjoy the hot alpine sun with an awesome mountain vista before you.

Try Whitewater rafting (free with our Active Packs) or rock climbing, Via Ferrata and a whole lot more… Or plump for something a little staid, like a game of tennis or golf. All under the most impressive mountain back drop anyone can imagine.

Child & Family

Meribel is the perfect spot for the family who wants to explore the mountains in summer. Just over two hours from the airport means no lengthy, excitement-sapping transfers!

Close to all the action (and the lifts) our chalets are in a good spot if you have children. Our hosts will give a warm welcome to families and children love the hot tub, the sunshine and the many great activities on offer. Being close to the heart of the village means it’s easy to return to our chalets during the day to refuel and recharge.

If you’re travelling with babies or toddlers don't forget to ask about our baby packs with cots and high chairs.
