Méribel, the British family favourite



This French resort is close to the fun of Courchevel, but at a fraction of the price


At the heart of the world’s finest ski region, Méribel remains an enduring favourite with the British.

Dozens of families will head to the French resort this half-term holiday to stay in chalets and be served their shepherd’s pie or spaghetti carbonara suppers by British seasonaires. The resort that was founded 80 years ago this month by the Scots-born Colonel Peter Lindsay remains a hunting ground for property buyers for many good reasons.

With its traditional wood-and-stone chalets strung between the trees across a cluster of villages, it’s far prettier than other French big hitters Courchevel 1850 and Val d’Isère, yet the skiing is just as good.
