Located at 1600 m in an exceptional spot above the resort centre, Méribel Altiport was, in 1961, the first alpine runway to be created in a French ski resort. Today, it is the emblem of Méribel les Hauts, a neighbourhood appreciated by visitors who seek peace and quiet, natural surroundings and panoramic views. Tucked at the foot of the ski slopes, which in summer becomes one of the finest golf courses in the Alps, Méribel les Hauts stretches from the Rond-Point to the Belvédère and the exclusive Domaine de Burgin. Méribel les Hauts never fails to charm thanks to its privileged setting amongst the pine forests and the beauty of its wood and stone architecture. The departure point for beautiful walks and gentle Nordic trails, Méribel les Hauts is renowned as an area of fairy-tale beauty.
