The Sapinière I and its sister chalet (Sapinière II) lie in a hamlet right on the slopes, just above La Croisette in Les Menuires. Access to the slopes and the wider 600km Three Valleys ski area couldn't be easier making this a convenient and great value home-from-home.
The apart-chalet is very comfortably furnished with large sofas and a gorgeous wood burner in the lounge / diner. Sit and warm yourself after skiing or boarding all day whilst soaking in the dramatic 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 morning moment of calm.
Another way to relax is to head to the small shared spa area in the residence which you'll have access to a couple of times a week. There's a sauna, steam room and hot tub plus a relaxation area 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.
