What is Meribel, French Alps like?
Meribel is part of the huge Three Valleys ski domain, the world's largest interconnected ski domain, with 600km of groomed pistes to suit all abilities right on its doorstep. Meribel is an excellent family destination, with numerous activities for children, such as theme ski areas, sledding, and the Olympic Park, which has an ice skating rink and a range of other off-snow activities. There are numerous children's ski schools in the area, two of which are managed by ESF.
Meribel is most known for its winter sports, but it is equally appealing in the summer, with miles of hiking and cycling trails, a golf course, and a calendar full with sporting and cultural events.
Alongside Courchevel, Méribel will be hosting the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in 2023. The championships will further cement the resort’s reputation as a world-class ski destination, increasing the demand for rentals and properties for sale in Méribel. What’s more, the resort is undergoing a wave of regeneration as it prepares for the championships, with two new red pistes, a skiable tunnel, and the resort's snowmaking capacity is set to double.
