by Pool Builders on 11-28-2010 in Articles

The les Menuires ski resort is located near the picturesque old farming village of Saint-Martin-de-Belleville in the Belleville Valley. That is part of the Three Valleys district of the French Alps, which is one of the most popular ski destinations in western Europe. The les Menuires ski resort offers low rates that make it a very attractive place for family ski weekends and holidays, as well as for skiers on group excursions. However, the good prices do not mean that the facilities are second rate. You can enjoy some of the best alpine skiing in the world here. There are facilities for skiers of every level, from first timers to the well advanced. The easiest runs are the closest ones to the slope-side accommodations, which is especially convenient for families with small children. The more challenging runs are farther off.

The les Menuires ski resort is divided into several little village areas, each with its own theme; La Croisette, which is the original resort, les Bruyeres, Reberty, Reberty 2000, Brelin, Fontanettes and Preyerand. Most of the accommodation is 'ski in - ski out.' There are a lot of accommodation features from which to choose. The most recently constructed luxury apartments and chalets have such options as swimming pools, Jacuzzis, Hammons spas, saunas, and log fireplaces. There are catered and self-catered chalets, as well as on-site restaurants. For budget conscious guests, les Menuires ski resort has top value "classic apartments", which are functional, but very convenient and cosy.
