Meribel is well placed with plenty of flights and  with a transfer time of only two hours from either Geneva or Lyon.  Return flights typically cost from £120 and increase substantially in peak season, you also have to pay for a transfer to the resort

A very attractive alternative is to drive and visit a choice of great places. 

What about Friday night in Paris? I love Paris in the spring time! Follow this with wine tasting in Burgundian vineyards in Chablis, Nuits St George or Gevrey Chambertin and a Saturday night in the Lyon area before arriving in Meribel.

What about Friday night in Reims or Epernay, and  Saturday in the champagne region tasting some fizz followed by Saturday night in Dijon? Included are some photos of our recent trip to this wonderful city and region. 

Or finally what about a Friday night in the charming city of Bruges followed by a a day of wine tasting in Alsace, here are our beautiful photos of Riquewihr.

Or mix and match between these suggestions and pay for some of the journey by buying some great value wines. Ferries are typically under £100 for a car and passengers, plus you have petrol and motorway fees.
