Undoubtedly the location comes up trumps here. The Hotel L’Eterlou is within easy walking distance to the slopes and in the town centre, meaning you're in and amongst everything the town has to offer. The Hotel Eterlou has its own heated outdoor pool and Jacuzzi; perfect for a post-ski dip and there’s an outdoor cabin with a sauna and steam room to relax in and recharge your batteries. If that hasn’t quite hit the spot you can head over to the Nuxe Spa at Hotel le Kaila for a little bit of pampering - it's just across the road.

The Hotel Eterlou, Meribel, has a charming chalet style, traditionally furnished to a high standard with a distinctly alpine feel. The wrap around lounge area in particular is a great space to find your own little nook to chill out in and there's a pool table if you're feeling competitive. The rooms are comfortable and the balconies are a bonus. Restaurant ‘La Grange’ has a great south-facing terrace ideal for a long lunch in the sun overlooking the slopes. Once you get back from skiing, finish off the day with a glass of wine or a house cocktail at the elegantly designed Eterlou’s Bar.

What we like

  • Town centre location less than 50m to the slopes
  • Outdoor pool and hot tub, as well as a sauna and steam room in the poolside cabin
  • Great communal spaces, the wrap around bar is full of cosy spaces and funky lighting

Worth knowing

  • If you fancy heading up to Mottaret one evening there's a free public shuttle bus that runs till midnight
  • The Olympic Park is just across the road if you fancy gyming it or trying the climbing wall
