Annabelle is one of 2 identical semi-detached chalets which share the jacuzzi and sauna facilities on the ground floor. Chalet Annabelle has a cosy lounge with a central fireplace, satellite TV, and music system. The chalet has chocolate bars, soft drinks, beers and mixers available at reasonable prices for your convenience. Each dining room comfortably seats its own guests plus a member of staff. However a connecting door between the 2 dining rooms allows for both chalets to be used by 1 group of up to 20 guests when requested.
Chalet Annabelle has its own chef. The chalet host spends time in both chalets. All the staff live in.
The location, 50m from the piste which leads down to various lifts and allows return access right to the ski room door, is absolutely ideal. The nearest bar/restaurant is just 100 metres away.
There is off-road parking for self-drivers.

Les Ménuires Resort Info
Located at 1815 m, the ski resort of Les Menuires is part of the prestigious 3 Vallées, the world's biggest ski area: 600 km of ski slopes, 200 ski lifts linking Les Menuires and the charming village of Saint Martin de Belleville with Val Thorens, Méribel, La Tania and Courchevel. A fabulous huge ski area designed so that everyone, from beginners to experts can make the most of their skiing. Residences on the piste, shops sheltered in the shopping arcades, different quarters linked with footpaths and mechanical lifts. In Les Menuires, everything has been thought out to simplify life for young and old.
Barely mentioned in ski brochures in Britain, Les Ménuires remains a largely French venue that is becoming a more and more attractive destination. Beginners are very well catered for and the resort is certainly amongst the cheapest in the pricey Trois Vallées. The skiing is great for all abilities, with particular mention going to La Masse, which offers advanced skiers some excellent blacks and off-piste. The resort itself is functional, no-frills French. There are some good restaurants and bars in the resort and on the slopes, but the skiing is the real reason to be here. With Méribel and the rest of the Trois Vallées on your doorstep, the variety of slopes available is superb. Access isn't bad with the TGV stop at Moutiers only 27km away and Chambéry airport a 90-minute journey.
Overall, Les Menuires provides a great range of skiing both around the resort itself and on neighbouring slopes. And for ten years, to suit this overwhelming landscape, Les Menuires has developed a high-standing accommodation programme over the past few years, with traditional chalets out of wood and stone.

Snow Overview - France (snow news updated 10-Mar-2014)
Fantastic sunny weather blesses the French resorts at the start of this week. Excellent snow conditions can still be enjoyed, especially on higher, north facing slopes. Even lower down the snow is still in great shape, although it can become soft by the afternoon.
Cauterets (250/350cm) in the Pyrenees has the deepest snow base of our reported French resorts, both on their lower and upper pistes, with an average base depth of three metres on Monday 10th March.
On Sunday 9th March, the Ski Club Leader in Tignes reported that the on piste snow conditions throughout the resort were excellent and not as busy as last week. In the Three Valleys, the Leader in Meribel said on Sunday ‘the pistes are in great condition and we had really good skiing particularly up Peclet and the Col’.
The forecast this week across France is for the sunny weather to remain, although there could the odd cloudy spell, with a chance of a very light dusting of snow in the Pyrenees.
European Weather Outlook
The weather is forecast to remain mostly sunny across the European resorts this week, although there is some cloudier weather expected on Thursday 13th March. This could deliver fresh snow to Austria and Germany. The temperature is expected to rise for the start of next week with the freezing level expected to sit around 3,000m on Monday 17th March.
If you are after fresh snow then the Scandinavian resorts could be your best bet, as cloudy and snowy weather is forecast next weekend. Oppdal in Norway could receive almost 60cm of new snow by Tuesday 18th March.
