When it comes to choosing the perfect holiday for you and your family or friends, it can be difficult to pick the right thing that suits everyone. For those who are sporty and want the most out of hitting the alpine wilderness and the slopes, they may want to maximise their time on the hill without worrying about other aspects, such as who will take care of the children. The challenge comes when you have a family with younger kids and you’re looking for the perfect holiday that fits everyone, which is why skiing holidays can be the perfect fit. Ski Famille offers just that – the perfect combination of ski hill access with luxury touches and in chalet child care that will leave you coming back time and again. But which hills should you choose, which level of chalet? What other fantastic offers are on the table? Here are our top reasons why you should pick a ski resort in the Alps for your next family holiday.
Experience Like No Other
With a number of resorts, chalets and ski hills to choose from it’s easy to see why ski holidays in the Alps continue to be a hugely popular option for families with children of all ages. With ski schools, in chalet childcare, catering options and a wide variety of runs for skiers of all skill and experience. Not only this, but the Alps are hugely popular for their aesthetic appeal, with mountain valleys and views all around in perfectly manicured ski resorts with plenty of apres ski activities available. From slow paced ski villages with a family focus, all the way up to more active and lively skiing towns that offer more in the way of night life, you will find what you’re looking for in the Alps.
Wide Range Of Resorts
The Alps are home to literally thousands of ski resorts spread throughout the eight countries they cover – France, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Italy, Monaco, Austria, Germany and Slovenia and each of these countries has a whole array of various resorts to choose from, ranging from lower level basic resorts with just the bare essentials for a great ski weekend all the way up to luxe resorts with in chalet childcare and catering services meaning you don’t have to lift a finger for the entirety of your stay. Some of the main resorts that people opt for include the Swiss, Austrian and French Alps. Resorts that continue to be popular with both families and couples alike include Les Gets – a lovely laid back mountain village ideal for families who like to get outside and explore in between hitting the slopes; La Plagne, an intermediate skiers paradise where you can increase your theory and knowledge while enjoying tastefully and luxuriously appointed family chalets with all the trimmings; Reberty 2000 where you’re guaranteed snow during the season, or Les Bruyeres where you can ski three valleys and experience some of the best slopes the Alps have on offer. These four resorts are run by Ski Famille – a family focused ski holiday provider that makes sure you have the ski holiday of a lifetime, regardless of how many children you have or their ages.
In Chalet Childcare
If the concept of in chalet childcare piqued your interest, you’ve come to the right place. Imagine having on demand nannies and child care professionals who can provide your children top of the line, fantastic child care options while you’re free to hit the slope for hours on end. With many resorts, especially those run by Ski Famille, in chalet childcare is offered for a fee but includes so much more than just childminding. Your children will be taken care of by childcare experts who will ensure they don’t just have responsible adult supervision but also will take your kids to ski school if they’re enrolled as well as provide them with supervised lunches, games and more. Having in chalet childcare means you don’t need to fret about making sure your child gets to the central childcare facility, leaving more time for you to hit the slopes.
Fully Catered Options
Do you really fancy a week away from literally everything? Did you know that many chalets in the Alps offer a fully catered service where you can get everything from breakfast all the way through dinners provided with a chalet host serving and doing all the clean up afterwards as well? With full catering options up to and including some of the most elegantly chosen local wines to accompany your evening meal, you can rest assured that you will be getting not just the best when it comes to chalet service, but excellent value for money as well. Save yourself time and stress trying to choose a restaurant every night and go with in chalet catering – you will be glad you did. An ideal choice not just for families looking to spend quality time together, but also for those couples looking for truly unique and romantic alternatives to restaurant dining in the resort.
All Inclusive Packages
From day one through day seven (or longer!) many of the resorts throughout the Alps offer full all inclusive packages that include everything, even flights! Imagine paying only one rate for everything from your flights, transfers, food, chalet, services such as childcare and lift tickets. Some resorts will even let you customise packages so you know exactly what you’re getting and can work out the perfect package deal for you and your family. With all the great options available for chalet and ski holidays, it’s no wonder they continue to be hugely popular with families of all sizes and ages from the very young to the very mature.
