Xavier Schouller, one of our founders is thrilled...
‘I’m immensely proud that Peak Retreats has been given this very special award. To be recognised by one of the UK’s most influential travel editors is just fantastic. It’s a great tribute to everyone in our team and testament to the fact that the UK ski market wants to discover the real French Alps; traditional resorts away from the crowds yet with access to brilliant skiing. Finding these hidden gems is what we do best.’
Peak Retreats was set up by Xavier and Nathalie Soma in 2002 to give skiers the opportunity to discover real Alpine France; first-class accommodation, stunning scenery and unspoilt, traditional, welcoming mountain villages with access to amazing skiing. An excellent network of local contacts in the French Alps and a unique perspective, combining a passionate UK-based team and French know-how, gives us a clear advantage.
We have an expert reservations team (many of whom are pictured above) who have a wealth of knowledge and experience to share, and it inspires loyalty in both our staff and clients. Many of the team have worked with us for over ten years and we have loyal clients who return year after year since our inception. We have won other accolades too, including Best Ski Company at The Guardian and Observer Travel Awards in 2014, 2011, 2010 and 2009 and also Best Family Ski Operator in the Family Traveller Awards in 2015.
We are the French Alps ski specialist featuring a range of luxury self-catered apartments, self-catered chalets and hotels in 57 mountain villages chosen for their charm and easy access to great skiing. We also offer summer holidays to traditional Alpine villages that offer an unbeatable combination of incredible scenery and a host of summer activities to enjoy.
