How to decide between the 43 French resorts we offer........difficult but we will look at some headlines as follows:

  • Ideal for mixed ability group
  • Money no object

See the resorts

Family Friendly.......and short transfers

Family friendly:

Many ski resorts work harder to attract the family market - these are a few that we think do it best:

  • Montgenevre - perfect for families -
  • Puy St Vincent - 
  • Avoriaz - larely ski to door which is great for the family...and the addition of Aquariaz has boosted its family friiendly status

Plus a short airport transfers

Kindest to the budget

If you are looking to keep your costs down, then head for some of the back door resorts that feed into larger ski areas or head for one of the resorts that are not so "known" on the ski market.

Some of our favourites that meet this include:

  • Montgenevre - considered the best value resort in France
  • Serre Chevalier - £ for £, this is the Muhammad Ali of ski resorts - it packs a brilliant punch
  • Try the Pyrenees - Font Romeu or St Lary
  • Isola 2000 - fly to Nice - good value in the winter!
