Meribel is the most central of the 3 Valleys and, as such, is in the best location for exploring this massive area. It consists of several villages. The main Meribel town was developed as a ski resort using traditional style chalets and therefore retains a traditional alpine feel. The higher village of Mottaret consist of apartment blocks at 1700m. The newer development of Meribel Villages is situated below the main town on the road to La Tania. Lower down the valley is the original town of Les Allues plus a number of smaller villages.
Lyon Airport is situated 15kms east of the city. There are numerous arrival and departure gates in the airport but the majority of UK flights, including all of Easyjet's, arrive at gate 10 (terminal 3). Whilst Lyon Airport is considerably further away than Geneva or Chambery the route is almost entirely on motorway making for fast transfer times. Having said that the motorway can get vey busy during French holidays with delays of 1-2 hours.
