Staying here with a group of nine of us we took a five bedroom apartment over three levels.
The apartment is very spacious, nicely furnished and not overcrowded with a large party.
The kitchen may be a little small for some, but unless you plan on cooking large quantities of food it's perfectly acceptable. The fully stocked kitchen also allowed us to prepare what we needed food wise, and a dishwasher meant no arguing over the dishes! My only suggestion for the kitchen would be a wok.

The apartment complex is around halfway up the mountain, a free shuttle bus to the main centre of the resort is a short walk away, and runs every twenty minutes.
Our friends were competent skiers and were able to ski in and out of the complex, for beginners the bus is required to get to ski schools.

Other reviewers have mentioned some noise from other apartments....whilst this noise could be heard it was not too off putting, and maybe the structure of the apartments is the cause...nothing that can be changed now.

All in all a place I would return to n the future

Although the personnel is really kind I would have to think twice to go back. The apartments are extremely noisy. You can hear other guests talk, use the toilet (not nice) and the worst things are the chairs in every apartment. Everytime you (or other guests) stand up, or move the chairs, they scare the hell out of you since they loudly scratch the floors, also during night time! The bathrooms have saloon doors. When you enter they keep flapping 8 times (careful for your fingers, it hurts) and when you leave the bathroom, same story. You hear your neighbours doing this every day, the whole day and night. If you are a light sleeper you wake up every time. I really cannot believe they actually choose these doors in all the apartments. We spoke to many other guests, everyone was complaining about the noise.
Large apartments, for large groups means parties outside on the balcony with music, laughter and loud talking.

We had the most fantastic week's skiing. We saw all weather conditions and had a blast.
Ski hire was so convenient using the sport 2000 hire shop right there on site.
The slopes are just there for a very simple ski in/out. You ski straight down to the les Menuires centre from the chalet.
The walk into town is a brisk 10 minutes or a sneaky walk down the actual piste. 15 minute pacey walk home. A good workout!
The staff were extremely helpful, we needed a few things looked at in the apartment and they were always with us within 10 minutes of a phone call to reception.
The bakery service is a real bonus. Definitely worth using and is no more expensive than if you had done the walk into town!
The two bedroom apartment we had, no56, was really perfect. The bedrooms were small but all we needed with plenty of storage. The bathrooms did the job. Our living/dining/kitchen area was more spacious than expected so was a bonus. All in all I think we got what we paid for and perhaps a little more.
The only downside I can see is that kids couldn't use the spa. Mine are 16 and 14 and definitely mature enough to be sensible with us in there. We did not know this until we were told on arrival which I think is an oversight. We therefore did not use it ☹️
We used a double underground parking space which is expensive for only one car but well worth it when you get to load up your car in the warm and dry with direct elevator access to our apartment area!! Brilliant and so easy especially when leaving at 6am!
Anyway, I very much recommend this charming place and would go there again.

Fab little group of apartments. Well appointed, easy reach to the slopes, even with minimal snow! Only draw back, as we went late in the ski season the closest bar/ resturant was shut. Not a hardship, others walking distance or a free buss ride away. Great for families. Recommended.

These are a little hamlet of wooden chalets above the town of Les Menuires. Very easy to ski in/out as literally on the edge of the piste. There is parking available and also a sauna etc. The self-catering chalets themselves are very well equipped and are clean and comfortable. There is ample crockery and cooking equipment and a large table that comfortably sits 9.

The lounge area has plenty of seating as well as a wood burner and a balcony. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms warm.

The hamlet does not have many facilities but it is only a short walk down to the next hamlet where there are restaurants and shops. Alternatively it's not far to walk or ski down to the town centre. The is a free bus to bring you back up the hill if you don't fancy the walk.
