Méribel, France

One of France’s best kept secrets, Méribel is
home to three valleys, five villages, and eight resorts, offering a wonderful collection of choices amid its alpine villages stocked with luxurious chalets. Shopping is divine, wandering among Europe’s most famous brands, with Prada, Fendi, Dolce & Gabbana.

Exquisite patisseries and cafes line the streets,

and the Olympic center supports a 25-meter pool, water slide, climbing wall, spa, and ice rink. Horse-drawn sleigh rides through this charming landscape, authentic cuisine in wonderful restaurants, and lively nightlife make this a favorite ski destination.
