Things to Do if the Weather is Bad
Sometimes the weather can act up, so we have a selection of activities for you for when it’s not nice outside. You’ll be able to wait for the sun to return with a smile on your face when you see that there’s still plenty to do in the meantime 😉
Relaxation & Wellness
Why not get the most out of a grey day by staying warm and relaxing at the sports centre in La Croisette or the 'Centre Aqualudique' (Aquatics Centre) in Les Bruyères? In addition to a swimming pool, these two complexes offer a spa corner with a hammam and saunas so you can enjoy the peak of wellness.
You can also get some me-time by spoiling yourself at the many boutiques in the Croisette shopping centre or in the Bruyères district. And don’t forget the gourmet option of a hot chocolate break in one of the resort’s pubs.
Culture & Heritage
Your exploration of local heritage offerings can start with a visit to the must-see museum in Saint-Martin-de-Belleville to learn about the valley and its history. The museum is open every day and anyone interested in the subject can easily spend hours there.
The nearby church of Saint-Martin-de-Belleville is open all year long. You can stop in to admire the richly ornamented Baroque altarpieces. If you take the road heading up in the direction of Les Menuires, you won’t be able to miss the beautiful Notre-Dame-de-La-Vie chapel. This Baroque shrine has been and still is an important pilgrimage site.
Upon arriving in Les Menuires, make sure to stop at the Maison de l’Abeille Noire et de la Nature (Honeybee and Nature Centre) by the Bruyères lake. Here you can learn all about the importance of the European dark bee, a native species to the Vallée des Belleville which is now protected after years of neglect.
For Athletes and Sports Enthusiasts
If you want to get some exercise and blow off steam, we suggest you visit the sports centre. Between judo and dance classes, squash, weightlifting, and group fitness classes, there’s enough here for you to burn off last night’s raclette.
For Children of All Ages
The Fun Park offers jungle gyms, trampolines, and rope bridges for children to enjoy. Also, remember to pack your swimsuits and take your children to enjoy a dip in one of the resort’s swimming pools.
The two cinemas offering daily screenings of the latest films are another great way to have fun. An extra screening is added to the schedule on bad weather days!
Escape Games and Laser Tag
Each of these games comes with its own fun and unique atmosphere, taking you to the top of Mount Everest, into the future, or to the abattoir! You can choose between virtual games, indoor escape games or even axe throwing.
