Catered Chalets Méribel - France
In the middle of the 3 vallees, Meribel, so British....
Meribel was founded by a Scotsman, Colonel Peter Lindsay who set his sights on somewhere to build a new ski resort away from the Nazi regime that plagued Austria and Germany. He first visited Les Allues in 1936 and planned how he could transform the small town into a fully functional ski resort. He moved quickly, with the help of French skier Emile Allais with the first ski lift being built just 2 years later and the first chalets a year after this.
Meribel is made up of several sub villages, Meribel Centre, Meribel Village and Meribel-Mottaret all connected with either ski lifts or buses. Meribel-Mottaret, built in the 1970s is situated 4km up the hill from Meribel Centre and is quieter and more modern than its neighbouring Meribel – similar to the peaceful Meribel Village, a small hamlet 2km away from Meribel. Meribel is vast, but there is something for everyone here and all hamlets are very well connected.
