A Guide to Meribel Centre
Meribel Centre is the main hub of the Meribel valley and offers guests the largest selection of restaurants, bars and non-skiing activities including swimming and ice skating. As Meribel Centre is located in the heart of the Three Valleys it also offers guests excellent access to explore the World's largest ski resort.
The Heart of the Three Valleys boasts beautiful pinewood scenery, a chocolate-box feel, but also where traditional Alpine charm mixes seamlessly with a vibrant and varied night-life. Meribel Centre itself is home to a wealth of shops, bars, restaurants, night clubs and cafes.
Meribel Centre encompasses not only the buzz area of shops, restaurants and bars next to La Chaudanne, but also a number of other areas including Meribel Morel & Le Plateau (also known as Altitude 1600), Le Rond-Point, Belvedere and the Altiport. The vast majority of accommodation in central Meribel is found in between the Morel and Belvedere areas, with the Rond-Point and Belvedere offering luxury chalets and apartments on the slopes.
