A Feast For The Senses – Spend A Ski Holiday In The Lap Of Luxury
More and more people are choosing a skiing holiday as an antidote to the usually abominable British winter weather. This is not surprising as skiing offers the chance to enjoy some healthy exercise in the midst of superb mountain scenery. To round it all off the “après-ski” means that the fun can continue well into the early hours.
If you want to make the most of a ski holiday it makes sense to opt for one of the luxury packages offered by travel specialists such as Thomson, as they have access to the better hotels and resorts. Not only that but their luxury deals usually include a range of valuable extras to make your holiday experience more enjoyable. These can include additional luggage allowances, upgraded rooms, and resort offers such as free ski passes. Here is a brief description of three of France’s most luxurious and popular ski resorts to give you an idea of what is available.
This resort area comprises three distinct villages, named according to their height, Courchevel 1550, 1650 and 1850. The highest, Courchevel 1850, also has the reputation of being the most expensive and exclusive in the French Alps. It is a favourite of those young British royals, Prince William and Kate, and is frequented by many of the world’s most famous celebrities.
In amongst all this glitz and glamour it would be easy to forget that Courchevel 1850 is also famous for its magnificent skiing. It has runs to suit all levels of skiers and its nightlife is unrivalled for its range of chic bars and restaurants.
This resort is one of the best known in the French Alps, enjoying a favoured position at the foot of Mont Blanc. The scenery in this area is as much a draw for visitors as is the skiing facilities. Luxury tour operators such as Thomson offer a range of accommodation in Chamonix, including luxury chalets for those who would like to feel part of the scenery. There are also a number of top class hotels in the region offering the chance to relax and be pampered after a hard day on the piste.
Val d’Isère is regarded by many dedicated skiing enthusiasts as the world’s number one alpine skiing resort. Its reputation is in part due to the diversity of its ski slopes and to the long ski season which lasts from the beginning of December until early May. As well as this it has some of the liveliest and varied entertainment on offer both during the day and in the evening.
Val d’Isère is an ideal choice for the novice skier as the nursery slopes are located right in the village. They are also free to use although if you require tuition there will be a charge for this.
If you are hoping to combine wonderful scenery with the opportunity to enjoy some invigorating open-air exercise then I hope that this article has whetted your appetite for a luxury ski holiday in the French Alps. An experienced travel company should be your first port of call as they can offer all the extras that can make such a difference to your holiday experience.
