Situated below Val Thorens, Les Menuires has easy access to over 600km of piste without having to break the bank. It’s a well-functioning ski resort, brimming with purpose-built accommodation and situated in a brilliant location. First-timers will find the ski area a great place to learn, with plenty of beginner zones and easy green and blue runs. Advanced skiers will find every type of terrain they can imagine to test their mettle on the higher slopes.
The village has a range of restaurants, with a selection of different cuisines to try out. There are lively bars, pubs and clubs to soak up the après atmosphere, and other amenities such as supermarkets, bakeries and grocers to stock up on all the essentials.

In the past Les Menuires has been associated with slightly less than picturesque architecture. Its size has also made it a challenge to get around easily. The good news is that things have changed after an extensive makeover. Most of the accommodation is classically styled in wood and stone, creating a traditional resort feel. There’s also a complete range, from budget right through to luxury accommodation, so you can take your pick according to your requirements.
