We’re excited to have Hotel Le Menuire & Spa join the Neilson Mountain Collection and it’s set to be our finest hotel. The clue is in the name; you’ll find it in the world-renowned 600km Three Valleys ski area and the wonderful spa has an impressive adventure pool and wellness area for some après relaxation.

 

It’s a luxurious place to stay, but in a laid-back, unfussy way. The mountain style and warm colour tones make you feel at home from the minute you arrive. You’re surrounded by far-reaching views of the Three Valleys peaks and the sunsets are not to be missed.

 

 

The Le Menuire is in a convenient spot as you can virtually ski from the hotel (about 100m away) to the Preyerand lift (about 200m away) and you can ski back to within about 20m of the hotel without having to come out of your bindings. The main hub of Les Menuires, the Croisette area, is around 450m away and from here, the entire Three Valleys is at your feet.

 

After your day on the seemingly endless slopes, head back and spend an afternoon indulging in the adventure pool. You can lose hours in there as it has jet beds with views of La Masse, a lazy river and even waterfall. Afterwards, try the sauna and treat yourself to a bit of pampering with a massage or beauty treatment.

 

For the restless, there's a games room to take on friends and family at table football or pool. Or simply head to the hotel bar and salon with its enviable open fireplace after a delicious evening meal and catch up with like-minded souls with a nice glass of red.

 

 

 

From the hotel to…

For beginners and children, a free shuttle bus is available from the hotel to the runs and the different districts of Les Ménuires.

 

Nearest lift: 200m to Preyerand gondola lift

Tuition meeting point: Complete beginner skiers - 2km in Reberty area, everyone else (including all snowboarders) meet at either Bruyères or Croisette area 200m away, depending on customer preference. All tuition is with ESF Ski School

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.

Why not treat yourself to a little TLC and indulge in one of our range of sports and beauty treatments - you're on holiday after all!

 

You can choose from sports, deep tissue and hot stone massages, Japanese Reiki, Indian head massage and beauty treatments using Temple Spa products. Visit the hotel reception for information and prices or take a look at the massage and beauty treatment menu for some inspiration.

 

Food and drink

Our half 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.

 

Your seven evening meals consist of three-courses with regionally inspired dishes all followed by fresh coffee. You can buy drinks to accompany your meal from the bar.

 

Rooms

Each of the 41 rooms here is cosy (but not small), clad with wood and adorned in Fairisle prints for a really warm and homely feel. Many have views over the mountains and some have balconies to enjoy a morning cup of tea or coffee and a moment of calm.

 

There’s a great variety of room sizes to sleep between two and four people comfortably. Each has plenty of storage for your kit and all are equipped with free Wi-Fi, satellite TV and ensuite bathrooms with a hairdryer, heated towel rails, over-bath shower and wc.

Families and kids

Our youngest guests will be well catered for with our Neilson-run childcare and crèches taking care of kids from four months to 12 years old. For skiing kids, we offer a ski school drop-off and pick-up service, ensuring they're happy and settled. There's also evening care available on three evenings a week.

 

Our chefs cook up dedicated kids' meals at high tea (served at 5pm) with all the firm favourites to make sure they're well fed. You can also borrow our snow buggies and sledges for when you want to head out and explore the resort by yourselves.

 

 

For our youngest guests, we have a 24 hour baby room and UK standard cots and highchairs, just let us know at the time of booking if you'd like a cot in your room.

 

We can even provide a private nanny service if you would prefer to have individual care for your little ones. Simply call us to discuss your needs.
