Les Allues is the original village of the Meribel Valley, and has all the charm that its heritage suggests. Located at 1200m, it is a convenient (you can either take a cable-car into the central Meribel system or a free bus service into the Meribel resort) way to access all the skiing Meribel has to offer: 42 lifts serving 150km of piste at high-altitude reaching 2950m, it's hard not to be impressed! And if that isn't enough, then there's the wider Three Valleys area to explore, which encompasses a whopping 600km of piste, 173 lifts and a total of 2162 snow guns to keep the runs in great condition.

The resort is a traditional alpine village and there are wood-clad chalets and apartments in Les Allues. Whether you're looking for a family, group or individual holiday, and whatever the size of your budget, the range of self-catered and catered accommodation in Les Allues is sure to please. Self-catered chalets in Les Allues give you the opportunity to experience the resort's restaurants, bars (with live music) and supermarket, but if you're looking for something a little more full-on in the evenings, then you can head to Meribel where there's plenty on offer.
Meribel and the Three Valleys provide great skiing options regardless of your level of ability
Free drag lifts and gentle green slopes make Meribel's skiing proposition particularly attractive to beginners and families. But there is also plenty on offer for more experienced skiers, and intermediates are well catered for by the large range of well-pisted slopes including slopes over into Courchevel and Val Thorens, which are within reach of most intermediates and provide a gateway to a vast skiing area. For expert skiers and snowboarders in Meribel, there are plenty of notable runs (black and red) as well as a great range of off-piste to discover especially if you're willing to journey into other valleys. Off the slopes, it's worth checking out the Olympic Centre, where events were held at the 1992 winter Olympic games. There is also a climbing wall, gym, pool and spa to enjoy if you're so inclined!
