I am travelling to the Alps in in February 2013 with my 13 year old daughter and 15 year old nephew. I'am organizing with a travel agency who has recommended 3 chalets one in Meribel, one in Morzine and one in Val D'Isere! I am not sure which to choose! The chalets are catered so I am not to worried about food but I would still like a town with plenty of Cafes, bars, restaurants etc. I would also like a town with things to do besides ski, like shopping, cinema, museums etc.
I would also appreciate info. on the skiing in these areas like is there slopes for beginners. Can we get private tours for the 3 of us?
