Chalet Reberty is named after the small hamlet of chalets it's in. It sits right by the slopes above the resort centre which means the views are pretty spectacular. It also makes it an ideal base for skiers and snowboarders; adjacent to the Boyes blue run which leads straight down to the nearest lift to connect you into the vast Three Valleys ski area.
Your own private hot tub and sauna means you have no excuse for having achy legs in the mornings. This is a really good choice if you're looking to get out and make the most of the ski area and have a comfortable and relaxing base to come back to.
The south–facing living room is a really good size with a lovely central stone fireplace providing a toasty focal point for post-mountain chats. Large doors in the living room open out onto a massive balcony which overlooks Les Menuires and the surrounding mountains.

About the resort
Les Menuires is all about the pistes. It's a great base from which to explore the full reaches of the largest linked ski area in the world, but without all the fuss (and prices) of the other Three Valleys resorts. It's purpose built but with good quality, slopeside accommodation where you can find everything you need.
Les Menuires sits in the midst of the largest lift-linked ski area in the world and offers the most skiing of all the Three Valleys resorts with 160km of mainly blue pistes. Families and beginners are well provided for with a superb carpet conveyor lift and tranquil slopes in the Croisette area. The closest black runs are on La Masse; try the Bouquetin, Dame Blanche or the off piste run down into Orelle.
With the emphasis on the skiing, there are fewer off-slope activities and après ski is fairly quiet, although there are some lively bars if you know where to look.

Food and drink
Our chalet board basis is designed for skiers and boarders. Breakfast is a fairly extensive affair with cooked and continental options every day. Your daily afternoon tea of freshly baked cakes and biscuits will be waiting for you when you come in from the slopes.
Evening meals are a three-course set-menu with regionally inspired dishes and free-flowing wine throughout the week, all followed by fresh coffee.
We provide evening meals on six nights a week to leave you free to head out and explore the resort on one evening. For shorter holidays over New Year 2016/17, you still have one night free to explore the resort and local cuisine.
The Reberty's seven ensuite rooms all have comfy beds and simple furnishings. They're split over three floors and are mainly twins, except a triple which has a third bed in a small separate cabine room, ideal for groups.
