Colonel Peter Lindsay, a very clever British businessman
No wonder why British community is so fond of Meribel which was founded in year 1938 by British Colonel Peter Lindsay. The brilliant idea of Colonel Lindsay was to escape once and for all the unbearable dark atmosphere of Nazi Austria and Germany where all British middle and upper class tourists used to spend their winter vacations and to find a new place to enjoy in the Alps. After purchasing large parts of land in Meribel area, Lindsay teamed up with two architects to lay down the foundations of the new winter sports resort, it was the birth of Meribel myth. Colonel Lindsay remained the major shareholder and the managing director of the holding Meribel Alpina and collected important amounts of funds to complete his project with the help of French government and of British trusts. Number of British investors teamed up with Lindsay purchasing on their turn land, chalets and apartments in the winter resort and developing collateral services and structures.
