Apres

If you want to ski the Three Valleys on a budget, Les Menuires is one of the more affordable villages on the mountain. However, as you would expect from a smaller resort there isn’t a huge number of bars for a pumping après ski session. But with Meribel and Val Thorens just a short ski away, you can get your fill of table dancing at the well-known Folie Douce in either of these resorts as long as you time it properly with the ski lifts to get you back to resort before the end of the day!

That’s not to say that if you plan on staying primarily in Les Menuires you can’t have a good après ski session. There is a selection of bars close to the slopes which are popular watering holes later on in the afternoon.

The liveliest bar is aptly named ‘Crazy Bar’ and situated just above the Croisette in the centre of the resort. They have happy hour from 16.00-18.00 where the drinks are cheap and the terrace gets packed out with skiers and boarders – it all gets a little bit crazy!

L’Oisans is a self-service restaurant during the day and transforms into a crowded après ski bar from around 4pm onwards. It is situated at the foot of the slopes in the Croisette and has a large sun terrace covered in picnic benches. The bar has an impressive selection of international beers and is the perfect spot to share a jug or two with a group of friends.

If you want to continue the après session into the night, head on over to Le New Pop which is a nightclub close to the Croisette. The music appeals to most people with a variety of cheesy Euro pop, old school rock and hip hop beats.

Le Leeberty is another bar which stays open late into the night. Situated in Les Bruyeres, it is one of the quirkier bars in resort. The booths are made from old chairlifts and the music is pretty eclectic, but if you’re in the mood for dancing after a day on the slopes this is the place to be. Happy hour is between 17 .00 and 19.00, the beer is cheap and they serve cocktails too.


Eating out

Les Menuires sits just below Val Thorens in the extensive Three Valleys network and often gets a bit of stick for its purpose-built grey apartment blocks. That said, it’s a great place to head for groups on a budget and still has a lot to offer on the food front. Whether you’re looking for a piste-side tartiflette or a gourmet evening meal, Les Menuires will have something for you.

La Ferme de Reberty
This restaurant is open for both lunch and dinner, though its location is probably more suited to a lunch time pit stop; when the sun is shining you can enjoy lunch al fresco on the large sun terrace. The menu is varied with traditional Savoyarde dishes and the option of a set three course meal for €24. If you’re going with kids they could grab a burger or pizza in the Igloo which is the snack bar attached to the building.

La Maison de Savoy
A mix of Savoyarde and Italian dishes, La Maison has a traditional interior with wooden beamed ceilings and chequered red table clothes. The friendly atmosphere, tasty tartiflette and piste side location make it a good lunchtime stop off.

Le K
This restaurant can be found in the chalet-hotel Le Kaya and it offers up gourmet cuisine. The restaurant is a mixture of old and new, with the interior presented in an impressive style. Large wooden tables are adorned with sleek grey tablecloths, whilst the lampshades are a more traditional chequered print. The menu is created by Chef David Archinard and changes daily, giving you the opportunity to try out new dishes. There is a sophisticated and modern menu for the evening or traditional Savoyarde dishes such as fondue or raclette if you prefer. If you’re looking for something special and happy to push the boat out then this is the place to try.



Activities

Activites available include a skating rink, paragliding, fitness centre, snow mobiles, outdoor heated swimming pool and cross country trails.
