- "This was our 7th time using Skibug, and once again they delivered a great holiday experience. The chalet hosts Imogen and Dave were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble, and they provided excellent meals each day, and were very friendly. Transfers from Geneva very slick, and with the chair lift less than 50m away, this a great location to ski from with access to the whole 3 valleys area right from the front door. 6 of us (4 adults and 2 teenagers) once again had a superb holiday. I have not hesitation in 100% recommending them, they are a very professional and reputable company. Would I recommend this holiday rental to my best friend? Yes." - Trip Advisor
- "This was our 5th holiday with ski bug, at both the chalets in The Three Valleys and also at La Plagne. On three occasions we have bought with us friends new to ski bug. What I love about the holiday is how easy ski bug make it for us. We just book the flights, we are met at the airport taken to the accommodation with all arrangements made for ski/ski boot fittings and for either delivery or collection of ski pass. The accommodation is comfortable and clean and typical of French ski chalet, the food is always cooked from scratch by the ski hosts who design their own menu, buy food etc. this means that the style of food has been different each time we visit but with common theme of good home cooking with very generous portions. The ski hosts have always been very friendly and helpful, with advice re the area, skiing conditions, places to eat etc. Unfortunately on three separate occasions a guest had an injury and each time the hosts assisted in driving/taking the guest for medical assistance and making sure they are comfortable We are currently planning next years ski holiday and skibug will definitely be our first choice. Would definitely recommend. " - Trip Advisor
- "I went on this holiday with a varied group of people. I only knew a couple and the rest were friends of friends. The proximity of the two chalets enabled the whole party to socialise together as there was plenty of room in either chalet to meet up in the evenings. Meals were varied and excellent. The rooms and bedding etc were clean and comfortable. Couldn't ask for more from my first ski experience." - Trip Advisor

Further up the resort into Reberty there are more recently renovated wood/stone Chalets. A really functional resort, Les Menuires is popular with families as an affordable ski destination.
The main shopping area of Les Menuires can be found at La Croisette with the large hotels in the same area. Chalets and further accommodation are also loated in the Reberty area of Les Menuires. The sports centre is located away from the slopes just a short stroll away, opposite the main bus station.
Les Menuires has everything from typical French cuisine, Savoie specialities with lots of melted cheese to a Chinese restaurant, Red Dragon, or even eating in a Yurt located at La Masse1.
