Après ski, an institution born in France, is a time-honoured tradition in Méribel. As the skiing day draws to a close, the champagne corks start to pop at the irrepressibly fun La Folie Douce where international DJs encourage ski-booted crowds to let their hair down and tables transform into dance platforms under still sunny skies. Also mountainside, The Rond Point offers an equally lively affair and a plethora of options exist in the atmospheric town centre. Méribel knows how to party.
Food is another French passion and the Trois Vallées region boasts a number of Michelin-starred restaurants as well as plenty of excellent mountain eateries, from rustic mountain huts to elegant bistros serving exceptional meals on inviting sun-filled terraces. Diverse menus mean that all taste buds are catered to and no one goes hungry.
For those seeking retail therapy, the shopping on Méribel's high street does not disappoint. Designer brands and fashion labels as well as the latest in mountain clothing, accessories, and equipment, can be found in a number of high quality stores dotted throughout the town. And when you're done, pull up at one of Méribel's delightful cafés and perk up with superb coffee or an indulgent chocolat chaux.
Méribel is the perfect resort for families and friends who want a wide variety of choice on and off the piste.
