Ski Collection - The Company
Ski Collection is a trading name of Peak Retreats Ltd, an independent niche operator giving British skiers the opportunity to experience skiing in France, the French way. Peak Retreats was set-up in 2002 and has been running successful holidays to the French Alps in both winter & summer. Its two directors, Nathalie Soma and Xavier Schouller were previously directors of well-known UK tour companies that operated holidays to France. The senior management team was joined by Olivier Lepoureau in 2005 to develop the Ski Collection brand into the leading independent UK operator for 4 and 5 star self-catering ski residences in France. Olivier was previously marketing director for a leading luxury hotel chain and a ferry company operating out of the UK.

Why choose self-catering ski accommodation?
Booking self-catering ski accommodation is a great way to holiday with friends, family or as a couple. Self-catering offers total flexibility, convenience and gives you complete control over your holiday. Self-catering ski holidays are fantastic options for not only families with young children, but also large groups and those that may have special dietary needs such as vegetarians or vegans.
It is also great for people who want a bit more privacy. Apartment sizes can vary meaning it is ideal to tailor the apartment size to your particular group. Prices are per apartment not per person so there are no under occupancy charges and you do not need to share space with strangers as you might in a catered chalet. A good option is to go for a large apartment and fill it with family, friends or colleagues.
You will have plenty of space to sleep and a spacious living area to socialise in plus the more people you can share the cost between, the more affordable your ski holiday becomes.
