If you’re planning a skiing holiday, France offers the broadest range of Alpine skiing opportunities anywhere in Europe. Choose from a variety of ski rental accommodations in Tignes, La Plagne and Menuires.
• Ski in La Plagne: Dominated by the mighty Mont Blanc, La Plagne is one of the most famous and exciting high altitude ski areas in the world. La Plagne offers skiing for all, with its 225 kilometres of slopes and a large off-piste skiing area including Bellecote's North Face. La Plagne is now linked to Les Arcs by the new cable car—the Vanoise Express. This means you can travel from one ski resort to another in just 4 minutes, at more than 380 metres above the valley.
• Ski in Tignes: Tignes is a high altitude resort in the heart of the French ski country (part of the Espace Killy ski area along with Val d'Isere). Tignes and the linked resort of Val d’Isere are exceptional; as you travel across the whole area, it is possible to go from one amazing descent to another with never a dull spot in between. Tignes really is snow-sure! The only time you may lose a day’s skiing is when there is too much snow.
• Ski in Menuires: Les Menuires is part of a massive lift-linked Les Trois Vallées ski area formed with the neighbouring resorts of Val Thorens, Meribel, Courchevel and La Tania. It has hundreds of kilometres of slopes to ski and explore. With over 400 snow cannons at the resort’s disposal, whenever the snowfall is not deep enough, Les Menuires can make its own snow. Les Menuires is known for its scenic natural beauty and the richness and diversity of its slopes.
Match Your Budget to the Perfect Ski Holiday in France
You can rent a variety of accommodations, ranging from luxury apartments with log fires to the more rustic Alpine chalets with ski-in ski-out convenience. You can either go with one of the catered chalet companies or other tour operators which provide package deals, or you can plan your holiday online yourself. It’s good to know how to choose between a ski chalet and a ski apartment?
• France has some of the most chic and designer chalets in the Alps. Perfect for friends and couples, luxury ski chalets are also perfectly suited for family holidays.
• Ski chalets offer impeccable service. You can be on the slopes all day with your friends or family while someone cooks your evening meal, provides breakfast and cleans the chalet while you are away.
• You can book a chalet as a self catered accommodation, and then "bolt on" extra services to suit your budget and requirements—from B&B to fully catered, and massages to supermarket food deliveries.
• If you want to book a comfortable yet budget-friendly skiing holiday in France, apartments for rent in the French Alps would be the ideal vacation rental for you.
• You can choose from various accommodation options, from simple non-serviced apartments to high-end 4 and 5-star hotels, depending on your needs and spending capacity.
• Apartment blocks are usually on the piste and very close to the skiing so there is no walking involved; facilities such as restaurants, supermarkets, bars and shops are close by too.
• At the budget end this type of ski accommodation can be cheap. They are purely functional with beds, a bathroom, a small kitchenette, a sofa, and a table and chairs.
If you fancy joining the fun, but haven’t booked a ski holiday yet, you’ll be glad to know you still can—especially if you aim for a resort with lots of skiing.
