This is also the perfect base to enjoy a sporty holiday in summer, with a super outdoor swimming pool.
A holiday is made much more memorable if you are staying in a great apartment. We think you'll enjoy our apartment for a few different reasons. Firstly it is in a very very convenient location - everything really is on the doorstep. Secondly, it is an inviting place to spend time. There is a picture-postcard view and a comfortable settee to enjoy it from! The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms spacious with baths that you can lie-back in and relax. The kitchen is tiny but everything is there to cook and then to sit down comfortably to enjoy your meal. We have spent many happy holidays here and we think you will too!
For children: Although children are welcome in our apartment, we don't feel it is suitable for very young children. The mezzanine is accessed by an open stairway and the lovely open space above the sitting room is not safe for very young children. Similarly, the balcony outside is high up. However, once the children have reached the age where they are more sensible, they will love the open-plan mezzanine and their parents will love the fact that the double-bedroom is tucked away quietly downstairs where they can enjoy a lie-in without being disturbed! Older children can safely walk the short distance to the shops in the village and can even reach the village sports centre with its swimming pool and skating rink without crossing over any major roads.
In summer, older children will enjoy the outdoor pool in the apartment complex. This is a great sunny spot and very warm and sheltered on sunny days.
Summer Activities: Over the last few years, Meribel has developed into a great summer activities centre. It is a main centre now for mountain biking (our apartment has a secure underground garage for bike storage) with an extensive network of trails in the surrounding mountains. Throughout the summer there are a number of mountain-biking events. Walkers and nature-lovers are spoilt for choice with the Vanoise National Park - marmots and bouquetins are everywhere! The 18 hole golf course in Meribel is superb - watch out for low flying places as you tee-off on the 3rd! There is also a fantastic, well-maintained driving range. If none of the above appeals - try the tennis courts or perhaps you might like to pony trek. The riding centre also offers an extensive programme of lessons. Adventurous kids can let off steam on the climbing wall in the sports centre or cool down in the ice rink - skate-hire is no problem.

Why Vari chose Meribel Centre (1450)
Having skied all our lives, we wanted to have somewhere in a great skiing location. Sharing our apartment with our guests meant we could have an apartment which was really well located and also really well equipped - we like to think everyone benefits. It gives us great pleasure to share it and to hear how much people enjoy their holidays in our place.
What makes this apartment unique
This property ticked all the boxes for us. Bright with wonderful views, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, underground car parking and only minutes from the centre of Meribel and the pistes. It is a wonderful place to be, winter or summer.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We very much enjoyed our stay in Meribel ......... As you can probably guess from my email sign-off, I love to cook and it is a great opportunity to do so when on holiday. (I know it is most people's nightmare!) Even though the kitchen was small, is was so well-equipped, that we manage to eat very well!!!
