Budget Accommodation Budget Ski Extras In-Resort Prices Ski Deals


Our recipe for cheap skiing holidays and the best budget ski holidays in France this winter!

Ski Collection specialises in 3 and 4-star self-catering ski apartments and hotels throughout France, offering you top quality ski accommodation but that doesn't mean you have to pay top prices. To help you save some pennies we have come up with recommendations for budget ski holidays that could save you money this winter.

If you are looking for a cheap skiing holiday or you are tied to a particular budget this winter do check some of the examples below. We don't offer bottom of the range budget ski accommodation but we believe that we can offer you affordable quality at great prices.

All our French ski resorts have high enough altitude and snow-sure ski slopes with mixed terrain for various abilities. All our accommodation has been selected and checked by our directors or members of the team so you won't have any unpleasant surprises.

We only use the leading ski schools and our ski equipment hire is with some of the most respected suppliers.


Budget Ski Accommodation


Below you will find a selection of ski accommodation we have chosen as being great value for money. Remember all our self-catering accommodation is priced per apartment and not per person. Therefore if there is a large group then the price can be shared between you all.


Double bedroom - Le Coeur d'Or in Bourg Saint Maurice Bourg Saint Maurice – Le Coeur d’Or is a great value 4-star MGM built residence that is realistically priced due to it’s location. Although Bourg Saint Maurice is not directly based on the slopes, the 'Arc-en-ciel' funicular reaches Arc 1600 and the massive Paradiski area in only 7 minutes.


Twin bedroom in Les Fermes de Sainte-Foy in Sainte-Foy Sainte Foy – Les Fermes de Sainte Foy is again a 4-star MGM built residence situated in this small village resort, which gives access to a smaller ski domain which doesn’t link to a major ski area but still affords plenty of skiing for a one week ski holiday. The skiing in Sainte-Foy is fantastic too for those who enjoy off-piste skiing.


Budget Ski Lift Passes

Good In-Resort Prices


It is also worth considering what the in-resort prices are like for eating and drinking out. It is for this reason that the ski resort bible ‘Where to Ski & Snowboard 2014’ has listed the following resorts in their ‘50 Budget Resorts’, due to their good value for money within the bars and restaurants. You will see that La Rosiere is mentioned, which is one of our most popular resorts, particularly with families.


La Rosiere, Sainte-Foy-Tarentaise, Les Deux AlpesMegeveFlaine and Vars.
