France

France

Overview

With the shortest transfers from the UK, familiarity to groups as one of the UK’s closest neighbours and the excellent cuisine, France certainly deserves its reputation as one of the best countries in the world to ski.

Bordered by seven countries and influenced heavily by numerous more, France is an incredibly diverse country and the different regions each have a unique feel, including the language, food and culture.

Our French resorts are based in both the Alps and Pyrenees, and include our famous ClubHotels. Thanks to our extensive experience and contacts we’ve been able to secure a wide and varied offering.

Alps

Located in the east of France, on the borders with Switzerland and Italy, the French Alps are the home to Western Europe’s highest mountain, Mont Blanc, and a staggering number of ski areas. Twice the host venue of the Winter Olympics, in 1968 and 1992, and boasting a host of world-famous resorts, the Alps are easily accessible - being served by numerous international airports and offering some of the shortest journeys from the UK.

The area also has a distinct regional culture, quite different to other parts of the country. The Haute Savoie region is one of the most beautiful in France, famed for its lake and mountain scenery, numerous spa towns and a laid back rural lifestyle.

Pyrenees

Situated on the border between France and Spain, the Pyrenees are a true cultural melting pot incorporating a number of different influences, and as a result the region has a very different feel to the Alps.

The French Pyrenees ski resorts have undergone significant redevelopment and investment in recent years in order to keep up with the leading Alpine destinations. Many of the resorts feature state-of-the-art modern facilities yet have managed to maintain the easy charm of traditional small-town life, meaning the best of both worlds for visitors.

Whisper it quietly, but the Pyrenees are one of French skiing’s best kept secrets!
