Insider's View

The Helios is in a fantastic location on the edge of Le Renarde backing onto the Doron piste (steep-ish blue), it’s just a minute’s ski into the village center and you can ski straight to Chaudanne (the ski school meeting point and lift hub).

Description

L'Hélios is a sophisticated boutique hotel in a superb location in Méribel. Stylishly decorated suites offer views of the valley and the ski in / ski out location makes this a great place to stay to make the most of the world's most extensive ski area, Les Trois Vallées.

Only 18 suites means that warm, personal service is guaranteed, yet the facilities are more befitting of a far larger hotel. The spa by Carita boasts an indoor pool with jet stream, steam bath and treatment rooms, while the private cinema's velvet seats are perfect for sinking into after a long day skiing.

Accommodation

Rooms are generously proportioned, starting at 31m2 ranging to over 100m2. The three floors are individually styled so you can choose from Nordic, Savoyard or Contemporary. Muted colors and slate bathrooms mean that all are stylish and supremely comfortable. All Rooms/Suites feature: flat screen TV, Blu-ray player, wifi, large beds and spacious slate bathrooms.

Childcare

Families are welcome to come and stay and we recommend the Hélios for families with slightly older children. There is a children's menu, children's room service options and babysitting can also be arranged.

Facilities

The restaurant specializes in re-invented French and Savoyard specialities and has been recommended in the Gault & Millau 2012 Guide. The Chef's imaginative and attractive dishes are well complemented by an excellent wine list.

Activities

Méribel offers a wide range of mountain activities in addition to alpine and cross country skiing, including walking on specially prepared trails, snowshoeing, outings on husky sleds and skidoos, paragliding, ice-skating and go-karting. Méribel also offers ten pin bowling, a casino and cinema, and also various guided visits, exhibitions and a museum.

Location & Directions

Meribel, France

Just above the village of Méribel in a superb piste-side location offering ulitmate ski in - ski out convenience

When to go

Méribel offers great skiing throughout the winter. The Méribel valley itself has both sunny south facing slopes, which are ideal on colder days, and higher more shaded skiing on Mont Vallon with snow-sure slopes. On one side, the North-facing slopes of Courchevel offer further great skiing and on the other, the Val Thorens valley has some of Europe's highest altitude skiing. Easy access to the entire Three Valleys makes it hard to beat from December through to late April.
