Self-catering accommodation in Méribel is unique amongst French purpose-built resorts in that it escaped the trend of 1960's concrete apartment blocks. Credit must be given to the resort’s founder, Peter Lindsay who, in the 1930s, insisted that all buildings in the valley must conform to a chalet-style design, built from stone, slate and wood. Those built in the 1950s, 60s and 70s usually comprise small studios or one-bedroom apartments while higher quality and more spacious accommodation is mostly found in the smaller, chalet-style apartment buildings constructed from the 1980s onwards.
Renting an apartment is the best option when searching for self-catered accommodation on your ski trip or summer holiday in Meribel, especially for smaller groups of friends or family. Their popularity stems from the wide variety of options on offer as they come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, ranging from small and functional studios to large flats with five-star luxury facilities. They also provide more flexibility in terms of catering choices and, sometimes, dates and duration of stay. Because they’re generally self-catered, they tend to be cheaper than catered accommodation, so apartments are a great option when looking for a budget-friendly base at the foot of the slopes.
Méribel also actively works to improve the quality of its accommodation. To this end, it initiated a quality mark called the 'Label Méribel' which is awarded to accommodation of a high standard, with modern facilities and good-quality decoration. Several hundred self-catering apartments in the valley have been granted this label and it is usually worth looking out for these properties.
