This duplex apartment on floors 5 and 6, with south-facing balcony off the living room will benefit from being in a premium spot within this fantastic development in the heart of Meribel. Set over 77 square metres that incorporate a large master bedroom (with en-suite shower room) and 2 more bedrooms, a family bathroom (with bath) and then the spacious open-plan living/dining room and kitchen on the separate floor, the property has access to the swimming pool and spa, cocktail bar and restaurant plus a rental income dependent on your usage options. Due for completion in 2019 (unless progress allows a slightly earlier delivery), this leaseback development is in the centre of Meribel and therefore at the heart of the World’s largest ski resort, The Three Valleys. With designs by renowned architect Christian Rey-Grange and complimented by interiors by Gilbert Kerdommarec, the development promises to be one of the Alps’ finest residences. Those interested in purchasing a property within this development should consider it as a way of investing in a very well-priced and beautiful apartment, which at the end of the leaseback agreement will prove to be a very shrewd acquisition.
There are many incentives to this purchase, including (but not limited to) the following: - VAT “reimbursed” at the point of purchase, ensuring you pay an excellent price for some of Meribel’s prime real estate: Sale prices, when calculated on a per square metre basis, are considerably lower than similar existing or planned projects in the vicinity - Management by one of the leading companies in the field – Pierre & Vacances – who look after all aspects of sales and marketing, maintenance, changeover etc. - A number of different owner usage options are available, depending on how much and when you would wish to use your property (and indeed other P&V premium properties across France)

Meribel itself comprises a number of attractive interlinked villages with picturesque tree-lined pistes and a vibrant après-ski scene. It also links into the Three Valleys, with over 600km of pistes and an array of off-piste itineraries and a culture of haute cuisine that has seen the area blessed with over a dozen Michelin stars.
Three Valleys Ski Area
A beautiful place all year with highly defined seasons and quiet and tranquil out of the ski season when the crowds have gone home, and then suddenly once again each winter the mountains of the Three Valleys come alive with people enjoying this vast ski area..... the largest linked skiing in the world.
The Three Valleys ski domain provides more than 600km of runs and probably the same again off-piste. In fact it should now be called the Four Valleys with the link into Orelle (Maurienne Valley) which can be accessed by ski from Val Thorens. This has also opened up some extraordinary off-piste runs. The Three Valleys provides direct links between the ski resorts of St Martin de Belleville, Les Menuires, Val Thorens, Méribel, Mottaret, La Tania, Brides les Bains and the four Courchevel resorts, la Praz, 1550, 1650 and the world famous 1850 – and now Orelle, in the fourth valley - all under one ski pass offering on-piste skiing from 1300m all the way up to 3200m. As these figures show the Three Valleys ski area offers huge altitude differences favouring long run skiing.
It has an ultra efficient, state of the art ski lift system, quality piste preparation and a dense artificial snow making system (1920 snow cannons) complementing the excellent natural snow cover. However, if you are not a fan of downhill skiing or like some variety during your stay then you can also roam the domain at your leisure on foot, hiking along the marked trails, or using the pedestrian ski lift passes. Many trails have been created especially to enjoy the increasingly popular snowshoeing sport and to discover the valleys from a new perspective: flora, wildlife, monuments, and spectacular scenery.There are also many cross-country skiing tracks that are prepared and maintained each day. These allow you to take in the breathtaking scenery and provide the opportunity to appreciate the beauty of the mountains away from the pistes.
An interesting and wonderful area all year round, there is much more here than the snow sports.
Meribel Ski Resort
Méribel is one of most popular resorts in Europe for English-speaking skiers along with Courchevel and Val d’Isere.
Meribel is the central valley of the largest ski domain in the world, Les 3 Vallées.
With 600 km of groomed pistes, 85% of which are above 1800 metres, 25 accessible summits, 174 modern lifts and over 2090 snow cannons covering 43% of the ski area the statistics are impressive as is the skiing. However Méribel is much more than the 5 month winter ski season and an extended stay in summer or during the colours of autumn are needed to appreciate this.
The initial development of the ski resort in the late 1930’s was a British and French partnership and this acceptance of English speakers continues to this day. Méribel is now a much more diverse international community with a large percentage of residents or visitors speaking English as their main or second language.
The main village of Méribel is built on the eastern side of the valley between 1450 and 1700 metres and because of this it is surrounded by forests or grass & timbered slopes. The strict architectural codes of alpine sloping rooflines, timber and stone cladding compliments this setting and makes it one of, if not the most, attractive of all the large high altitude French ski resorts.
The other major “resort villages” are Méribel Mottaret (1750 m), Méribel Village (1400 m), Les Allues (1100m) and the spa town of Brides-Les-Bains (600 m) at the very bottom of the valley. There are many smaller villages or hamlets so the range of property covers all tastes from barn conversions & village houses through to ski apartments and super luxury ski in ski out chalets with private swimming pools. As well as the normal range of hotels, bars, restaurants & shops Méribel boasts a range of facilities and activities.
The Méribel Olympic Centre is home to a full size ice rink, indoor climbing wall, 25 metres indoor heated pool and water slide, conference centre, gymnasium and wellness centre of spa, steamrooms, etc.
There is a spectacular 18 hole Golf Course at 1700 metres and a huge range of other outdoor activities such as tennis, hiking, mountain biking, road cycling, paragliding, fishing, etc which are enjoyed in the warmer months. Méribel property is generally more expensive than other French resorts but not yet at the dizzy heights of Courchevel 1850 with perhaps the exception of a few of the most prestigious pockets.
As Méribel continues to become ever more popular with the big spenders of the world the strong capital growth experienced over many many years is likely to continue.
