Les Menuires: skiing for all
Nestled at an altitude of 1850 metres, Les Menuires is a ski-in, ski-out resort with all the accommodation and shops you need for a successful skiing holiday. In an exceptional setting in the heart of the Belleville valley, it immerses you from the moment you arrive in a typical mountain world.
Until the 1960s, the villages of the Belleville Valley were very isolated due to their geographical position and lived solely from their agricultural activity. At the time, the mayor of Saint-Martin-de-Belleville decided to revive tourist activity by launching a land use plan. In 1964, work began on the construction of the resort of Les Menuires. The valley underwent a period of intense development in the 1980s, but today the villages of Les Belleville have included an eco-tourism policy to respect the environment and protect their territory and heritage.
The modern architecture of Les Menuires is the result of a desire on the part of the engineers to create an innovative and urban project to break the codes of the mountain. If Saint-Martin-de-Belleville is a typical and authentic small mountain village, Les Menuires creates a signal, a landmark in the heart of the mountain. In contrast to the traditional wooden chalets, the buildings of the resort are the symbol of the 20th century with their elongated shapes like a snow liner.
Friendly, this ski resort is ideal for family holidays and to take advantage of the facilities available. Offering a wide range of activities, staying in Les Menuires means plunging into an exceptional atmosphere with 360° panoramic views over the Tarentaise valley. Labelled Famille Plus, the resort offers activities and services adapted for the whole family.

In January, the wine-growers' week is held to allow you to taste French wines and discover passionate craftsmen. Then the Salomon Winter Festival is the meeting place for amateurs and ski professionals alike to test the equipment and ski with professional riders. And in April, the 3 Vallées Enduro brings together thousands of skiers who take part in a fun and unusual course in a fun atmosphere on the largest ski area in the world.
