Skiing in France

Ski resorts in France, like the ski terrain, are massively varied, meaning there is something to cater for every possible taste. Many of the larger ski resorts are purpose built, so they are superbly located, with extensive and well maintained ski areas, at altitudes that guarantee reliable snow conditions, and with many properties fantastically positioned to offer easy access to the slopes. One downside to this kind of resort can be the slightly unattractive architecture where concrete apartment blocks, hastily constructed in the boom of the 60s and 70s, contrast against the magnificent beauty of their alpine setting. However, the fantastic skiing in France means such resorts are some of the best in the world.


That said, for every purpose built ski resort in France there are many smaller and more traditionally styled villages with good access to exceptional skiing. Although proximity to lifts may not be as good as in the purpose built resorts, the tranquillity offered by a ski holiday in an authentic French mountain village can be well worth the extra effort. 


Our catered ski chalets in France are easily the most popular accommodation option and these can be found in all skiing locations and resort sizes in the mountains.
