Famille Plus and Top of the French Alps

 

Famille Plus

To ensure families are 100% happy and to avoid any unwanted surprises, the French Tourism Ministry has created a newnational tourism label to approve the facilities and services available to families with children staying in French tourist destinations. The Famille Plus award aims to improve resort services and facilities, helping operators to identify those resorts which can ensure a high level of quality in their infrastructures and the holidays enjoyed by families and children.

The seven commitments for the Famille Plus mountain resorts are:

 

A tailor-made infrastructure for families

Entertainment and activities to suit all ages

A price to suit everyone: from the youngest to the oldest

Activities for children and adults, to enjoy both on their own and together

A nearby medical service for those 'under the weather' days

Children to be taken care of by professionals

To take clients' requirements and suggestions into account

 

The following resorts that we feature have acquired the Famille Plus label:
