General information

Les Menuires, a village located just under Val Thorens, was built in the 1960's in the shape of a horse shoe. Although most of Les Menuires was built during that time, much has changed since. This can be seen in the remarkable differences in architectural styles. The village consists of different neighbourhoods. The more recent constructions in the neighbourhoods of Reberty and Les Bruyères have adopted a more authentic style using wood and natural stones. This is contrasted with the more functional, modernist buildings that characterised construction in the 1960's.

Taking off your skis after a long day on the pistes does not mean that the day is over. You could decide to soak up some sun on one of the many terraces overlooking the pistes or go shopping in La Croisette instead. The sports centre in the centre of Les Menuires is open 7 days a week, so even if the weather is bad, you can still keep busy. Les Menuires has many shops, restaurants and bars.
