We all have a love for the mountains here at Ski Collection so it probably doesn't surprise you too much that the team here head to the French Alps with their own families throughout the season. Our team aren’t just travel enthusiasts; they have an eye for the little details too so when you're picking your holidays, ask for their recommendations. We've asked three members of our team where they would recommend and here's what they had to say...
Sainte Foy boasts an exceptional natural setting, showcased by its range of ‘natural ski’ slopes and trails. It’s peaceful for those learning and yet, for more advanced skiers, feels like an astounding adventure playground. Our tip: Explore the Natur’Renaud trail as a family, it’s an ungroomed blue piste where children can safely discover the joys of natural skiing.
Where to stay: 4-star Les Fermes de Sainte Foy is located in the heart of the village at the foot of the slopes, within very close proximity of the shops and the resort centre. It is located in the heart of a nature reserve within this delightful and authentic village so you really can get that relaxing experience in the heart of nature.
Montgenèvre has a unique atmosphere that our clients love, it’s so close to Italy you can really feel the Italian influence (and find the best coffee!). Its height means the snow comes earlier and stays later and as the resort itself is flat and not too big, it’s great for the little ones.
Where to stay: Stay in the 4-star residence Le Chalet des Dolines Montgenevre which is located in the new ‘Obélisque’ area, at the foot of the Chalvet side slopes and is 150m from the Chalvet cable car. The nursery ski slope adjoining to the residence has the Obelisque button lift and snow cannons to help guarantee return by skis.
We love Tignes for the variety of slopes for all ski levels. Take the Grand Motte cable car up to the top of the ski area, the views are spectacular. Skiing over to Val d’Isère is easily done by intermediates – grab a drink at the original Folie Douce bar when you get there!
Where to stay: 4-star Les Chalets du Jardin Alpin in Val d'Isère is located in a tranquil setting of the La Legettaz area, at the foot of the Solaise ski slopes offering doorstep skiing possibilities (snow and level depending) and is half a mile from the resort centre (800m).
