Flexible arrival dates over Christmas & New Year 2016/17

Quick links...

Spend a snowy Christmas with the family

Christmas and New Year are always a magical time of year, especially when children are involved. Make their dreams (and yours!) come true and experience Christmas in one of our beautiful French Alps resorts. Snow capped mountains, festive celebrations and decorations, hot mulled wine and delicious warming meals are all on the cards with the ski slopes open just like normal so you can actually spend Christmas day on the slopes. This is definitely one for the bucket list and not to be missed! See more on family skiing. There are plenty of non-skiing activities to enjoy as well. Try snowshoeing, dog sledding, horse drawn carriage rides, sledging, ice skating, retail therapy, spa treatments, restaurant hopping...each resort has many activities on offer in addition to the ski slopes. 

Arrival dates over Christmas and New Year 2016/17

Traditionally in France Christmas is celebrated on Christmas Eve. French families gather in the evening to have their big Christmas meal and the 25th December is more of a relaxing affair. New Year is celebrated in the usual way with street parties and fireworks displays across the Alps.

Due to the dates that Christmas and New Year fall this year, some of our apartments and chalets are running different dates from our normal Sat-Sat stays and are also offering additional dates too. This gives great flexibility and also a longer duration if you wish. These dates may well suit you better than travelling on Christmas Eve and New Years Eve. We're sure lots of people would prefer to arrival in ample time for Christmas or New Year. Like we say, with you in mind, the flexibility is there for you to choose. See below for date options.

Travelling with large groups

We can cater for all party sizes - the largest accommodation sleep up to 16 or 18 people. However, we can accommodate more if you have separate apartments for instance in the same residence. The festive period is a great time to get friends and family together to share the experience - it's also cheaper if you share the accommodation. Like they say, the more the merrier! Need ideas? Have a look at our large ski accommodation page for inspiration. Alternatively our team are more than happy to help you find your required ski apartment, ski chalet or ski hotel room based on your party size.
