The apartment buildings at Brelin, La Croisette in Les Menuires are just over 40 years old.  They were heralded in the March 1972 edition of  the journal of SCIVABEL ( SOCIETE DE CONSTRUCTION IMMOBILIERE DE LA VALLEE DES BELLEVILLE ) as being a visual  ‘ harmonious contrast ‘  –  between  the  whiteness of painted concrete and the darkness of natural  vertical slate hanging on its external elevations. I’m in full agreement! The building looks spectacular – almost like an ocean-going liner, with jutting prow, against the white mountainside.
