The destination

Luxury Ski Chalets and Hotels Méribel

The charming town of Méribel has its roots back in the late 1930s when it was envisioned and created by Scotsman, Colonel Peter Lindsey. Located in the heart of the Three Valleys, this was one of the first major ski resorts in the area. Today, it is a favourite destination for British skiers due to its stunning natural surroundings and a setting full of Alpine charm and hospitality. 

Adding to its popularity is the fact that Méribel ski resort is now seen as the home of catered chalet holidays. In fact, the first chalets were built while Peter Lindsay was initially developing the resort before World War Two. The amount of accommodation has expanded over time with a vast range of luxury chalets and hotels available in the present day.
