Meribel is well situated within three hours to four airports. Chambery is the closest at only about an hour away, but Grenoble and Lyons are two hours away and Geneva is three hours away. Geneva is probably the best option, offering prompt and convenient bus/shuttle access. Renting a car and driving the remaining leg can be challenging with weekend traffic or inclement weather. The most preferred means of traveling from Geneva, or any of the other destinations, is by train—it’s relaxing, comfortable and quick.
