Our top tips for a great value ski holiday
How to make savvy savings on your ski holiday and get the best value from your ski holiday in France this winter!
Ski Collection specialises in 3 and 4-star self-catering ski apartments and hotels throughout the French Alps. However, we believe that offering you top quality ski accommodation doesn't mean you have to pay top prices. To help you save, we have come up with recommendations for savvy ski holiday choices 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 then find out more about the properties we suggest below. We don't offer bottom of the range budget ski accommodation but we believe that we can offer you affordable quality at great value prices.
All our French ski resorts are high enough altitude and have access to 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.
Value 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.
Bourg Saint Maurice - base yourself at the base
Le Coeur d’Or is a great value 4-star MGM built residence that is realistically priced due to its location. Although Bourg Saint Maurice is not on the slopes, the 'Arc-en-ciel' funicular reaches Arc 1600 and the massive Paradiski area in only 7 minutes.
Sainte Foy - choose a slightly smaller ski area
Les Fermes de Sainte Foy is a 4-star MGM built residence situated in this small village resort, which gives access to a smaller ski domain. The domain doesn’t link to a major ski area but still affords plenty of skiing for a one week ski holiday. Plus, the skiing in Sainte-Foy is fantastic for those who enjoy off-piste skiing.
Les Residences La Plagne 1800 are conveniently located near the centre of the resort of Plagne 1800, 250m from the slopes, ski school and nursery & 150m from the nearest shops. Facilities in Les Residences La Plagne 1800 include an outdoor heated pool, sauna, squash court, playroom for children and ski lockers.

Unlike other ski holiday operators, we don't charge fuel surcharges, under-occupancy supplements or ski & boot carriage fees. You may have to clean your self-catering apartment yourself or pay extra to have your ski accommodation cleaned, you may have to bring your own bed linen or towels or hire them locally but these should not have much impact on your overall ski budget.
