Weekend skiing short breaks


 Spend 3 to 5 days skiing in France 2013/2014




Whilst normally most holidays available are 7 days, Saturday to Saturday, as a small specialist operator we have the flexibility to offer different durations and different start dates (outside peak season [21/12-03/01 & 15/02-15/03]).


Your weekend can be as long as you want it to be, starting on any day of the week. There is obviously more availability mid-week as opposed to weekends.


We don’t arrange flights, as we believe that you can get better value by shopping around and booking direct with the low cost carriers and the main airlines trying to compete with them! There are numerous flights to Geneva from London and many other regional airports – see our Flights page. We can then arrange competitive car hire or private transfers to your hotel depending on the airport.




Our best short break hotels are in Brides-les-Bains. We can offer ski breaks of 2 to 6 nights at the ‘Golf Hotel' or 'Grand Hotel des Thermes'.


Brides-les-Bains (Linking to Meribel/Three Valleys, the world’s largest ski area) is 1 hour from Chambery airport, 1h40 from Lyon airport, 1h50 from Geneva and Grenoble airports.



Prices from
£198 pp for 3 nights on half-board basis in Jan, £330 for 5 nights

£222 pp for 3 nights on half-board basis at peak time, £370 for 5 nights


Prices from £258 pp for 3 nights on half-board basis in Jan, £430 for 5 nights
