Le Chalet du Sunny, Les Menuires
Well, the clue’s in the name here. Perched at the top of the Sunny Express chairlift from Les Bruyeres to Les Menuires, this gorgeous sunny spot is one of our favourite Les Menuires bars.
It’s full of traditional Savoyarde charm inside, but outside is where things get truly breath-taking. Sit back and drink in panoramic views from the modern sun terrace, with only a subtle sheet of glass between you and some of the highest snow-capped peaks in the Alps. Talk about an eagle-eye perspective!
If you’re in the mood to relax, one of the highlights at Le Chalet du Sunny are the rustic open-air hot tubs: their water cleverly warmed by log fires. Keep warm, ease your tired legs, and treat yourself to some sunbathing at the same time – bliss. If it’s just a quick lunch in the sun you’re after, we recommend a hearty plate of tartiflette while you soak up some live music and your daily dose of vitamin D.
Once you’re feeling fortified, head up to the nearby Pointe de la Masse viewpoint for even more spectacular views and a rather charming sculpture.
