Overview - chalet description - Chalet Sapinière III description

The Sapinière III joins its sister chalets (Sapinière I and II) for winter 2019/20. Lying in the small Sapinière hamlet just above La Croisette in Les Menuires, you're right on the slopes so access to Les Menuires' pistes and the wider 600km Three Valleys ski area couldn't be easier.

The apartment-style chalet is very comfortably furnished with large sofas and a heart (and foot) warming wood burner in the lounge/diner. After skiing or boarding all day, snap up a slice of cake and soak in the far-reaching views through the large windows. There's a small balcony with uninterrupted views of La Masse and the slopes of Les Menuires, perfect for grabbing a moment of calm.

To ease your ski legs at the end of the day, head to the small shared spa area in the residence which you'll have access to a couple of times a week. Enjoy a rejuvenating sauna, steam room and hot tub or just relax in the space to completely unwind. There is a small charge for using the facilities, but this can be paid for locally.

Sapinière is French for Fir, which is apt as there's a small Fir wood behind the chalets, so your views are either of the slopes or the woods. Just down from the woods is the nearest lift. Improvers to advanced can clip in straight from the residence and be at the lifts in no time.

Les Menuires centre is about a 15-minute walk down the gentle pistes where you arrive in La Croisette with a nice selection of bars, restaurants and shopping. Stop off at the small l'Etoile bar in the middle of the nearest piste for a cheeky vin chaud. This really is a great choice if you're looking for Three Valleys skiing without the premium prices!

Don’t forget that you get free guiding and coaching throughout the week from fully qualified ski and board instructors.

Designed for confident blue and red-run skiers and snowboarders, they'll show you around the mountain on free guiding sessions, and even offer free coaching sessions to help you become a more confident skier or snowboarder.

There are at least three sessions a week and we guarantee each guest at least two sessions a week. Your hosts will explain how it works when you get there.

On the ground floor, there's a double room with its own ensuite shower and a twin room with private shower room. Both share a wc.

Two twin rooms (one in the eaves) and a single room are split across the top two floors. They share a full bathroom plus an extra wc. The single also has a private shower room.


Meals - food and drink in Chalet Sapinière III

Our chalet board basis is designed for skiers and boarders. Start every morning with an extensive continental breakfast, and cooked options on most days. Your daily afternoon tea of freshly baked cakes and biscuits will be waiting for you when you come in from the slopes.

Evening meals are a three-course set-menu with regionally inspired dishes and free-flowing wine throughout the week, all followed by fresh coffee. We provide evening meals on six nights a week leaving you free to head out and explore the resort on one evening.

We update Chalet Sapinière III's details often, but facilities do change. e.g. some extras listed by the supplier as "free" or included might only be for the first time you use them, or for one time per party, then charged for further use. If any specific feature is essential to your holiday, make sure you ask us to confirm the details of it before you book your holiday.

Together with Saint Martin De Belleville and Val Thorens, Les Menuires (say it Lay-Men-Weer) is part of the Vallée des Belleville and probably the cheapest base for the glorious skiing of the 3 Valleys. It’s true, this purpose-built resort’s more focussed on the practical than the aesthetic… but it’s made a valiant effort to shrug off the ‘ugly duckling’ rep - fitting a bit of a facelift in time for the Albertville Olympics. Split into various ‘quarters’ (linked by walking paths, ski runs, shuttle...
The resort has aimed to provide a wide variety for all abilities – and the proof is in the pudding! The opportunities are outstanding for skiers and snowboarders, but you would expect no less considering it is a part of the largest ski area in the world. Novices will find five free lifts either end of the resort for getting to grips on gentle little green runs, and longer greens such as La Violette at the top of the gondola from La Croisette. With a healthy mix of reds and blue runs covering the vast major...
End a day of skiing on the large sun terrace in L’Oisans and sit down in the sunshine with a jug of beer. Kick back with a cocktail or shoot some pool in the cosy Piano Bar Le Kube. Sports games are known to be aired on the TVs in venues like L’Original Café. If you ski over to Val Thorens be sure to go for some drinks at the famous Folie Douce. Those looking for some late night action have two night clubs to choose between; Le New Pop in La Croisette or Le Leeberty in Les Bruyères - an intimate underground ...
