The Gondola lift at Les Allues takes you to the central lift network at Meribel giving you direct access to the whole area. There is also a free regular bus service to Meribel centre. Both the bus stop and Gondola are within easy walking distance of Chalet Vache Bleue. After a day in the mountains you can return by the free bus, the Gondola or when the snow conditions are good via the Village run which ends in Les Allues.
If you would like to go to Meribel for a taste of the more vibrant nightlife there, the free bus runs until after midnight through the season giving you easy access without actually having to stay in Meribel centre.
Les Allues is the original village of the Meribel area and makes an ideal base providing a peaceful and traditional environment. There are several restaurants, two bars, a ski hire shop, a ski school office and a small supermarket. Unlike staying in a purpose built ski resort you will get a taste of real French life in the Alps.
