France Ski Holidays
Affordable, close to home, and with some of the most extensive linked skiing domains in the world, France skiing holidays are a top choice for British winter sports lovers. Each year, around 200,000 Brits visit France to ski, snowboard, sightsee and enjoy the fine cuisine that is part and parcel of any France skiing resort. We at Coop Travel have France ski deals at prices you will find hard to beat.
It’s easy to see the attraction of a France ski resort. For a start, you can book a last-minute deal and be there in a matter of hours; by car, plane or train. Then there’s the France skiing domsins, which are extensive and varied, with the French Alps offering reliable snow throughout the season. Not to mention the excellent France ski resorts themselves, which offer facilities for snowboarders and skiers of all levels and ages.
France ski holidays are popularly booked at the Three Valleys resorts of Courchevel, Meribel and Val Thorens. The France skiing resorts of Tignes and Val d'Isere, in the L'Espace Killy region, are also popular. Chamonix, at the foot of Mont Blanc (the highest mountain in Europe) is an all-year-round destination with a lively UNESCO-protected town centre, offering exciting runs for intermediate and advanced skiers. The birthplace of modern mountaineering, you will see as many crampons and ice axes on the streets as you will ski goggles, proving that when it comes to winter holidays in France, snowboarding and skiing aren’t the only options.
France ski accommodation ranges from traditionally built log cabins with direct access to the slopes, to boutique hotels and apartments in charming Savoie-style villages like Belle Plagne. A number of the France ski resorts that we at Coop Travel list are purpose-built ski-in ski-out villages, interlinking to large mountain sports domains. The interlinked France skiing districts of Les Arcs and La Plagne are examples of this, both offering extensive skiing and snowboarding facilities in the modern Paradiski area.
