Overview - hotel description - Sowell Residences description

There’s room for all at the Sowell Residences, whether you’re travelling solo or with a group.

The apartments are split across two sections of the long residence building, separated by shops and a mini market. These modest apartments are decorated with neutral colours, dark wood flooring and sleek furniture. There’s a whole range of sizes available, from two-person studios to apartments for six. Each of them comes with a kitchenette with hobs, microwave, fridge, dishwasher, toaster, kettle and coffee maker – so you can prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner whenever you want. And most of them have a balcony, so you can sit out and make the most of the view.

The residence is also home to a small indoor pool, great for tiring out the kids once back from the slopes. You can also stock up with food and drink for the week at the onsite mini market.

When you’re all settled in, it’s time to hit the slopes. It’s just a minute’s walk to the nearest gondola and a couple of minutes to the ski school meeting point.

Please Note

When you arrive in the resort, the coach isn’t able to take you right up to the entrance of the Sowell Residences, so you’ll be dropped off close by. From there, a smaller vehicle will pick you up and take you the rest of the way.

We update Sowell Residences'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.

This package holiday to Sowell Residences in Les Menuires, France departs Saturday 22nd January 2022, for a 7 night stay on a "self catering" board basis. A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged. It's not included in the basic price of your holiday and is usually paid locally. For reference, the average charged in winter 15/16 was between 50p and £2 per person, per night.

Together with Saint Martin De Belleville and Val Thorens, Les Menuires (say it Lay-Men-Weer) is part of the Vallée des Belleville and is the cheapest base for skiing in the 3 Valleys. This purpose-built resort is more focussed on the practical than the aesthetic. Le Menuires is split into five villages - Preyerand, La Croisette, Les Fontanettes, Reberty and Les Bruyères, all linked by walking paths, ski runs, shuttle buses and lifts. Les Bruyères or Reberty have the sloping roofs and wood-cladding the Al...

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 majori...
