Meribel Resort Guide

Primarily renowned for being at the center of the world’s largest ski resort, Meribel is a quaint French village set in the heart of the Three Valleys - or Les Trois Vallees - in the Savoie region of the French Alps. The picture-perfect landscape, with rolling slopes and snow-covered peaks, makes Meribel one of these most desirable places in the French Alps in which to buy a property. With its conventional Chalet-style architecture, Meribel has an authentic alpine charm. Large detached chalets – dotted across the Meribel valley - provide an ideal base for second home buyers or investors looking for a holiday home in the Alps.
