Whether you are looking at chalets or want to invest in an apartment, the Meribel ski property market offers an abundance of choice, and is an ideal choice to pricy ski areas like Courchevel. From the most luxurious chalets with hot tubs and a log fire to centrally located, catered apartments, buyers always find the home they want.
Any skier or snowboarding fan also enjoys what Meribel offers through excellent infrastructure, opportunities and of course, that time-honoured après ski social scene. In some areas, the overlooking Vanoise national park mountain views provide the perfect backdrop to wake up to, while in others, their short distance to the lifts means any hardcore skiers can wake straight up and get on the slopes.
About Meribel: This delightful French ski-resort sits in the Tarentaise valley and belongs to the Three Valleys ski-area, which is one of the world’s best. Sitting approximately 1400 metres above sea level, it offers more than 600 kilometres of pistes, and for those hard-core skiers and snowboards, 130 kilometres of cross country runs.
Collectively it joins many other French ski resorts tapping into that area including Tignes, Val d’Isère, Espace Killy, Les Arcs and La Plagne. Despite its one name, it breaks down into three districts including the village, centre and Mottaret. So, let us see what you can get for your money when buying real estate.
