Located at 1850 m altitude, in the heart of the 3 valleys, the resort of Les Menuires is the ideal destination for a mountain holiday in Savoie. Summer and winter alike, the resort has been designed to satisfy all desires and all ages. Families are particularly delighted because they can recharge their batteries and have fun in the heart of nature with a multitude of activities.
After those long winter months, who hasn't dreamt of a breath of fresh air and freedom?
We naturally associate summer with the seaside without necessarily thinking that the mountains are full of much more picturesque and beneficent treasures.
Far from the crowds and the heat, choosing to go to the mountains means offering yourself unlimited possibilities and reconnecting with what is essential.
Nestled in the comfort of an apartment that perfectly reconciles tribal life and autonomy, in the heart of a green and flowery valley, taste the pleasure of opening your windows on an immense territory just waiting to be explored; a vision that can only fill you with well-being and quickly make you forget the constraints of everyday life.
Lulled by the singing of the birds and the delicate breeze that caresses the valley, in the heart of a wild nature, enjoy the benefits of a peaceful setting that invites you to travel and dream.
Don't forget to go out and contemplate the stars because, in this environment preserved from pollution, their observation is privileged. It is a unique spectacle that will undoubtedly reward the most patient with a magnificent shooting star.
With family or friends, discover an environment designed for the pleasure of all.
You can't miss the "Multi-leisure Card". It's a sort of sesame that gives you access to about twenty free activities with free access and preferential rates on others. You will be able to practise all kinds of sports with family or friends or discover new disciplines in complete freedom: Aqua spa, walks with the Guide Bureau, ski lifts, archery, fun park, ping pong, fitness, aquagym, ballroom dancing, basketball, volleyball, tennis, judo, shows, etc.
Whether you are an experienced sportsman or a thrill-seeker or simply want to discover something new, every activity in the resort is accessible to beginners and more experienced skiers alike.
We particularly appreciate the multitude of hikes on offer which allow families to stretch their legs and good walkers to challenge themselves in an idyllic and timeless setting.
The Lac du Lou for the variety of landscapes encountered during the walk and this magnificent blue lake bathed in unspoilt nature. An ideal family walk.
Le Grand Perron des Encombres for the sporting challenge against a backdrop of extraordinary nature. The luckiest ones will undoubtedly see a ibex in the middle of the marmots.
For the children, don't worry, the resort is labelled "Famille Plus" and therefore has all the necessary infrastructures to make you spend a wonderful holiday.
The Piou-Piou club welcomes children from 18 to 30 months old and the mini-club welcomes children over 30 months old. Many activities are offered to children to discover the mountain from a different angle and come home in the evening with memories in their heads: learning to mountain bike, climbing, discovery of the fauna and flora, zip line, etc...
One thing is for sure, Minnows don't know monotony, not even on rainy days; the opportunity to let the unexpected carry you away and try new things.
The conversations around a good dinner in the evening will be all the more lively!
A remarkable heritage and the awakening of the senses
