Méribel boasts a wide range of activities other than skiing. There is a sports centre built for the 1992 Olympics with an ice-skating rink, heated swimming pool, sauna, Jacuzzi, steam room and bowling alley. A Cinema, numerous shops, restaurants, bars and nightclubs combine to make up the superior facilities of Méribel.
Le Cruet is a typically rustic French hamlet. The chalets in Le Cruet all have individual character, giving the hamlet a unique feel.
Le Cruet has the advantage of being only 5 minutes drive from lively Méribel, with its many activities and night life and being even closer to the small village of Les Allues, with its local shops and restaurants. Le Cruet itself is peaceful; the perfect place to relax and enjoy the amazing views.
In the mornings we will take you up to the lifts in Méribel and pick you up again in the afternoon. In good conditions it is possible to ski to the door. There is also a bus service, which runs between Meribel and le Cruet, in case you should want to come back early one day. Should you want to go out in Méribel after dinner, we will be happy to take you up there and make sure you have details of taxis to get back home again.
Summer in Méribel is something everyone should experience at least once. The scenery is beautiful, with numerous sporting activities for the energetic, such as walking, hiking, mountain biking, white-water rafting, parapenting, tennis, horse riding and much more.
If you like your holidays more relaxed, why not come and just enjoy the beautiful surroundings and fill your days with gentle walks and lunches in Méribel, Les Allues or in our garden. You could also swim in in- or outdoor pools and perhaps take a daytrip to the historic and beautiful town of Annecy with its nearby lake.
For the golf enthusiast, there is the Méribel 18 hole golf course, described by Peter Allis, as one of the best golf courses in the Alps.
