The beauty of Summer
The French Alps are magical in the summer. Wildflowers take over from the snow, animals and birds reclaim their space. The air is clean and the views spectacular, you can move at your own pace on foot, on a bike or simply take a ski lift to soak in the views the easy way.
During the summer months the area moves at a slower pace, arrival days are flexible and short breaks of 3 nights (Chalet B) and 5 nights (Chalet A) can be accommodated. Prices start at €160 per night for Chalet A and €55 per night for Chalet B.
From an amble around beautiful Villages to strenuous hiking at altitude, there is so much to choose from. Footpaths are well marked and signed just pick up your free map from us. and go exploring.
The free shuttle buses make reaching every corner of Meribel easy. If you want to get a bit higher buy a Pedestrian Pass and let the Lifts take you to the Summits.

The French Alps have long been known as a centre for road cycling and Meribel is no exception. Within easy reach of so many classic alpine routes Meribel also has its own alpine road – the tarmac route from Courchevel Altiport up to the stunning Col de la Loze at 2300m. This is the first stage of the ambitious “VIA 3 VALLEYS” linking Méribel and Courchevel via the Col de la Loze. Reserved exclusively for 2-wheelers and pedestrians.
The climb from Meribel to the Col de la Loze is around 7km long at an average incline of 6.5% with the steepest pitches of 17%. The climb provided an exciting stage finish in the Tour de France 2020 so why not try it yourself? E Bike riders are welcome if you feel you may need a helping hand.
