The ski resort of Meribel is actually the vision and brainchild of British soldier Peter Lindsay who along with the help of French skier Emile Allais, came across Meribel somewhere between late 1920’s and early 1930’s. Convinced that this was the ideal location, Lindsay started to buy land from the locals and began to realise his dream resort. It is said that the name Meribel originates from the Latin words “Mirare” which means “to look at” and “Bel” which means “beauty”. After the first chalets were built, the first lift was built in 1938 and it took skiers up to 1900 meters. The coming of the war halted any progress but once over, Peter Lindsay returned and resumed his vision. He envisioned a high altitude residential resort which was integrated with the natural environment; and as such, this was the beginning of the building code which can still be seen in the chalets and buildings of Meribel until this day. The code advised that all buildings were to be built with the local materials of stone, slate and wood. Thus to this day at Meribel, the buildings still carry this theme, fortunately, as the alpine spirit of the region is preserved.
And in keeping with tradition, our suggested accommodations below, whether hotel, apartment or chalet accommodation, you are bound to experience a hint of the charismatic Savoyard theme.

Ski Apartments in Meribel
For smaller travelling groups or smaller families seeking privacy and relaxation at a reasonable price, apartments would be the favorable option.
Self catering apartments in Méribel in particular are a special case amongst other ski resorts in French as Meribel deviated away from the trend of concrete apartment buildings in the 1960’s that was the order of the day at other resorts. This was only possible as a result of Peter Lindsay, the resort's founder who was insistent that buildings in the 3 valley area must adhere to a chalet style design built in the traditional fashion of stone and wood. It was not until the 1980’s that larger chalet style apartments were starting to be constructed once again in the resort.
Apartments in Meribel can be found in different sizes and cater to different groups ranging from romantic couples looking for a studio to get away with some privacy to small families needing an apartment that sleeps up to 6 or 7.

Ski Hotels in Meribel
In most ski resorts across Europe, chalets and apartments are often the more favorable options when it comes to ski holidays as they offer more privacy, more room as well as flexibility in catering and of course, the added experience of staying in a chalet or chalet styled apartment is usually the cherry on top.
