Ski Holidays in France

France remains the most popular destination for Brits who want to go skiing. And it is clear to see why it's so popular. Not only is it easy to get to from the UK but there really is something for all tastes. It has the highest mountain in Europe, glacier skiing, purpose built resorts which may not be pretty, but they sure do have good amenities, to pretty stylish resorts like Val D'Isere and Samoens. In addition, there's resorts to suit all, from Chamonix and La Grave for advanced skiers and Morzine and Flaine which are great for beginners.

Why Ski in France?

France remains hugely popular with British families for a number of reasons. Firstly, as we have already said, it offers such great variety. You really will find a resort here that's right for you. Expert skiers will be more than satisfied with resorts like Chamonix, whilst head for the Three Valleys if its miles of piste you need. Meribel will deliver the most amazing apres ski and finally France can also do cute and pretty resorts alongside purpose built and functional.

In addition to the variety, France is also incredibly easy to get to from the UK. You not only have a huge number of flights to choose from, you also have the Eurostar if you live near London and then a great number of high speed train connections from Paris. France is also very familiar for us Brits, which can be very reassuring when you are travelling with young children.And finally, as unattractive as purpose built resorts can be, France really did lead the way here, but don't discount them. If you are travelling with young children the convenience of a purpose built resort could be a huge advantage.
