Further up the valley is the village of Méribel Mottaret. Although it's not as charming a village as Méribel, Méribel Mottaret has fantastic access to the slopes. Developed in the 1970s Méribel Mottaret has a modern, attractive style. It is quieter than the central resort but still has a varied selection of bars, shops and restaurants, and there's a free bus service down to Méribel. The biggest bonuses of staying in Méribel Mottaret is the ski-in-ski-out accommodation and easy access to the slopes of Méribel and the rest of Les Trois Vallées.
