Local Guide

The Destination

  • Hotel Le Coucou is located in the prime position of Méribel, the central resort of the Three Valleys, the largest ski-area in the world. Positioned between Courchevel, a destination that entices the wealthy, and Val Thorens which hosts the highest resort in Europe, Meribel is ideally located to gain the most from the Three Valleys. Hotel Le Coucou is nestled in the exclusive area of Belvedere in a peaceful piste-side location with ski-in/ski-out access. From top to bottom, on the mountainside and on the valley side, there are majestic peaks as far as the eye can see, and magical points of view where nothing disturbs the beauty and nature. Inside, the architect Pierre Yovanovitch has made each opening into a breathtaking panoramic picture. Atypical, surprising, always unexpected, Le Coucou sings a tune that everyone loves, the exhilarating happiness of holidays and the euphoria of living every moment to the full. 

What do do

  • In addition to skiing, children and adults can enjoy all the fun and thrills of the snow, with just one idea in mind: to share happy moments, all together. Rise to the challenge of the famous Mission Black Forest sledging slope as you laugh your head off; test out pony sledging or ski-joëring; fly over the mountains in an airship for an unforgettable winter!

Good to know

  • A very personal re-interpretation of Alpine style: Designer Pierre Yovanovitch came up with a very personal view of contemporary French lifestyle, where minimalism and extreme luxury go hand-in-hand. Ignoring fashions and trends, his distinctive architecture focuses above all on the purity of lines, the strength of volumes, the elegance of materials and mastery of light, be it a 17th-century château in Provence or a triplex in New York. Applying a global architectural approach, from layout to decoration, he signs a reinterpretation of the classic repertoire of the Alpine style with a contemporary look that is minimal, but warm and subtly original. Le Coucou cultivates the art of contrast and rupture, between the monumental and the intimate, solid geometric lines and singular blurred volumes, vintage and innovation, impeccable regularity and artisanal imperfection.

Worth getting out of bed for

  • The Spa & Wellness area of the hotel Le Coucou Meribel offers an ideal setting to find inner harmony in a natural setting and an atmosphere oozing serenity. Enjoy the pure mountain air and organic skincare treatments by Tata Harper, to make your skin look radiant. Everything is here to take care of your health and to create the best conditions for your future skiing prowess. In addition, the décor is spectacular and is enough to bring instant calm and serenity.
  • Divided into two areas, the fitness room offers a panoramic vista over the valley that gives you the impression you are outdoors - a unique sensation that is perfect for boosting performance! The first room is equipped with several Technogym® machines, all the sports equipment essentials and a minibar. The other area of the room is equipped with a KinesisTM, a rowing machine and a space dedicated for personalised Pilates and yoga lessons. A coach is available on request for any specific requirements

Wine & Dine

  • A vast terrace with a view of the valley surrounded by snowy mountains; a refined and contemporary style. At lunchtime and in the evening, the Beefbar, a restaurant concept created by Riccardo Giraudi in 2005, welcomes lovers of exceptional meat.
  • Warm tasty crêpes at the Bar for afternoon tea; pre-dinner cocktail and appetizers
  • For a fantastic breakfast buffet, head to Bianca Neve, an Italian-style restaurant invented by Riccardo Giraudi, which also serves refined Italian specialities and pizzas every night.
