Méribel: the best ski holidays in the business
Lose yourself in the heart of the Three Valleys
Perched in the Tarentaise valley of the French Alps, Méribel combines exhilarating views (you can just about catch Mont Blanc from the peak of the nearby Mont Vallon) with a wonderful location and comfortable homely feel throughout. Its major selling point is simple though, the resort is part of the sprawling Les Trois Vallées ski system, and is as such one of the best equipped skiing resorts on the planet. Any lover of ski holidays need look no further. With pistes for any level of skiier or snowboarder and easy access to the similarly idyllic resorts of Courchevel and Val Thorens, not to mention our fantastic low prices, it's hard to imagine a more pleasant place to base yourself for a holiday of fun in the snow.
Enjoy a luxurious après-ski experience
Once you've had your daily fill of excellence on-piste, Méribel's many delights will keep you entertained well into the night. The only difficulty will be making the first lift the next morning! The range of restaurants both in the resort itself and at strategic points around the piste area is astounding; it's only too easy to gorge yourself on foie gras, dig into a juicy steak, or just refuel for the day ahead with a perfect pizza. Méribel is well served for bars too, with a lively selection of watering holes designed to cater for the preferences of every kind of tourist. Dance into the night or sip a warming glass of mulled wine in Alpine splendour, the choice is yours.
Hit the heights and emulate Olympians
As much as you can have fun off the slopes, it is at the tops of the mountains where Méribel comes alive. With the modern and impressively comprehensive system of lifts and gondolas at your fingertips, and a range of excellent value for money ski passes available, it's all too easy to make your way to the top of western Europe. And the way down? Well, whether you prefer to ski gently along fairytale-like wooded runs, or to throw yourself down a thrilling black run, there'll certainly be a route that suits you. The more intrepid traveller might even give the Olympic piste from the 1992 Albertville Winter Olympics a go, following in some seriously impressive footsteps.
Then, at the end of the day you can collapse, sated, into bed in spellbinding surroundings. Our fantastic offers really will have left you breathless!
