3 Valleys - Chenille | Papillon
Bettex / Les Menuires
Les Menuires is situated in the Belleville Valley, the largest of the Three Valleys - just below Val Thorens and above St Martin de Belleville.
The resort is at the linking point between Meribel and Val Thorens via one of it´s 4 main summits, the Mont de la Chambre.
It is an excellent base to explore the whole of the Three Valleys area with very easy access to Val Thorens and to Meribel as well as to the Courchevel Valley.
The Bettex chairlift is less than 100m from our chalet doors and takes you up to just above Les Menuires village centre from where you can head in any direction you wish.
Our chalets, in the village of Bettex, are set in a beautiful location next to the Doron river below the summit of La Masse.
This is a haven for off-piste skiing with usually good conditions guaranteed all the way to the chalets
The resort has been awarded the "Family Plus" award for it´s facilities for children and families - there´s a host of activities here for the times when you´ve had enough of skiing.
In the main centre of Les Menuires, there´s a sports complex where you´ll find a swimming pool, fitness room, sunbeds, massage and more.
Les Menuires also offers a Snow Guarantee - with it´s high location at 1850m and the fact that 45% of the pistes are protected with snow-making, even all the way down to St Martin de Bellevile at 1450m.
The easy blue piste (Bettex) down into Le Bettaix village will take you all the way to the chalet at 1600m and has snow making all the way.
