More affordable than its Three Valleys neighbours, Les Menuires is a favourite with French skiers, who love it for its unfussy ambience and abundance of slope-side accommodation.
If you are not fussed about being in the most picturesque resort in the Trois Vallées, then Les Menuires can make a good base for exploring this huge ski area.
It's close to neighbouring Meribel and Val Thorens and has easy access to an impressive amount of intermediate-friendly ski terrain.
What's more, it has a range of non-ski activities that will keep children amused at all times of day.
Les Menuires is made up of several developments, with much of the accommodation self-catering apartments - some brash 1960s and 70s monolithic apartment blocks, others newer and more handsome wood-and-stone chalet-style buildings.
The resort is championing Fat Biking as an exciting non-ski alternative to try, with a programme that includes two 4km descents with a qualified guide.
Les Menuires doesn't have the throbbing nightlife of Val Thorens, but there's enough here to satisfy many holidaymakers.
The majority of the accommodation in Les Menuires is self-catering apartments, but there are hotels and chalets too.
Well-loved Le Grand Lac is a restaurant with huge sun terrace and panoramic views, located at the bottom of the Granges chair between Les Menuires and St Martin de Belleville, specialising in Savoyard dishes.
