Welcome to

Les Menuires

Les Menuires may not win prizes for the beauty of its architecture and nor does its reputation for nightlife reverberate throughout the Alps, but it provides inexpensive accommodation that offers quick & easy access to the world’s largest ski area. Indeed, it is broadly agreed that accommodation prices in Les Menuires are around 30% lower than they are in Méribel and even the lower villages of Courchevel. Why pay for a name?

At 1,850m the resort is high enough to offer a good degree of snow reliability and its mostly south-facing slopes mean that when the sun shines, it shines on Les Menuires – not ideal for the powderhounds but great for families with shivering children!

Flying - There are a few options when it comes to your destination airport; but Geneva is the recommended option because of greater flexibility for transfers and car hire to take you onto Les Menuires. The transfer is 193 kms and takes around 2 hours 20 minutes.

Train - The Eurostar glides through France directly from London St Pancras to Bourg-Saint-Maurice in a little over seven-and-a-half hours and, from there, it’s 75km on to Les Menuires with taxi and transfer options available.

Driving - Drivers will find the roads through France faster and emptier than those in the UK and this is largely down to them being toll roads…so there is a price to pay! London to Les Menuires takes around 12 hours without stops and this includes the tunnel crossing.


If you're driving, it's worth stopping off in Moutiers or Albertville for the larger supermarkets. Les Menuires also has a number of supermarkets in resort too. You can also organise for fresh bread & pastries to be delivered to your apartment!

On the slopes we love Au Chaudron St. Martin on route from Les Menuires to Saint Martin de Belleville for its friendly hosts, incredible views and delish dishes as well as Le Chalet du Sunny found at the top of the Mont de la Chambre chair for crepes and a drink or two before that final descent down the mountain.

For something a bit special for dinner (or lunch), look no further than L'Ours Blanc, at the hotel of the same name. It's located off the Montagnette green run, under the Doron chairlift.


As with every resort, you can go dog-sledding or ski-dooing.

Activities exclusive to Les Menuires include Speed Mountain – a cross between a roller-coaster ride and toboganning – and the Aquafun and Wellness Centre with its swimming pool, hamman and jacuzzi. It's got something for all the family.

Fitness fanatics may favour a spot of Nordic skiing, some snow-shoeing or a yoga session whereas our more relaxed guests enjoy taking a movie in at the cinema or throwing a stone ball into ten pins at the end of an alley.
