However, accommodation is spread out over several sectors, from traditional Mussillon below the centre to Le Belvedere at the top.

Les Allues is an old mountain village that you pass through on your way up to Meribel and has gondola access to the slopes. Meribel Village is a small hamlet about two kilometres from the centre and offers a quieter place to stay. Further on along this road is La Tania, a small family resort that provides good access to both Courchevel and Meribel ski areas.
