This terrific French resort is located right in the heart of the Belleville Valley, part of the extensive 3 Valleys ski area.
Les Menuires boasts some of the most sought after skiing in the 3 valleys with beginners and intermediates well looked after, while experts have the whole of the 3 valleys to explore. The town, at the foot of the slopes, enjoys good restaurants and great nightlife.
Les Menuires shares the Belleville valley with its sister Val Thorens and they offer a varied and extensive selection of accommodation, from simple apartments to 4-star hotels, along with a number of chalets and apart-hotels. So whether you are looking for a budget weekend break or a full service week-long stay the resort has something for you.
Due to the altitude and the vast ski area, the resort usually enjoys good snow conditions from November until early May. Lying as it does above the tree line, you will often find Les Menuires is just a scene of beautiful white snow in every direction, surrounded by rugged peaks and topped with blue sky.
Much of the resort is traffic-free and as it is purpose-built has been developed to allow doorstep skiing
