Spend a snowy Christmas with the family

Christmas and New Year are always a magical time of year, especially when children are involved. Festive celebrations and decorations, snow capped mountains, hot mulled wine and delicious Savoyard meals are all on the cards with the ski slopes open as usual so you can actually spend Christmas day on the slopes. Make their dreams (and yours!) come true and experience Christmas in one of our high altitude French Alps resorts. Skiing at Christmas is definitely one for the bucket list and not to be missed! See more on family ski holidays. Most of our resorts are quite large so there are plenty of non-skiing activities to enjoy as well. Try snowshoeing, dog sledding, horse drawn carriage rides, sledging, ice skating, retail therapy, spa treatments, restaurant hopping...each resort has many activities on offer in addition to the ski slopes. 

Arrival dates over Christmas and New Year 2016/17

Traditionally in France Christmas is celebrated on Christmas Eve so French families gather in the evening to have their big Christmas meal. The 25th December is usually a more relaxing affair. New Year is celebrated with street parties and fireworks displays across the Alps and is celebrated as normal on 31st December.

Due to the dates that Christmas and New Year fall this year, some of our apartments are running different dates from our normal Sat-Sat stays and are also offering additional dates too. This gives greater flexibility and also longer duration's if it suits. These dates may well be better for your party than travelling on Christmas Eve and New Years Eve. We're sure lots of people would prefer to arrival in ample time for Christmas or New Year. See below for date options.

Travelling in a large party

We can cater for all party sizes, the largest accommodation sleep up to 18 people - we have many apartments that have 5/6/7/8 bedrooms. However, we can accommodate more if you have separate apartments for instance in the same residence. The festive period is a great time to get friends and family together to share the experience - it's also cheaper if you share the larger accommodation. Like they say, the more the merrier! Need ideas? Have a look at our group ski holidays page for inspiration. Alternatively our team are more than happy to help you find your required ski apartment based on your party size.
