Luxury Ski Chalets France

With historic ski villages, vast mountains and extensive slopes, the French Alps are widely regarded as the epicentre of skiing and snowboarding in Europe.

Each winter, skiers and snowboarders of every nationality flock to the French Alps, drawn to excellent quality skiing, fantastic cuisine, European atmosphere, alpine charm and all kinds of off-slope activities you won’t easily find elsewhere. There are three departments in the Northern Alps (Haute-Savoie, Savoie and Isère), which are home to three main ski areas, Paradiski, Les Portes du Soleil and of course the famous Trois Vallees. With all of the french resorts within three hours of Geneva there is a multitude of options for your luxury ski holiday in France.

The most well-known of these regions is Les 3 Vallees in the Tarentaise Valley, which is home to one of the world's largest ski area. Incorporating eight resorts, including Courchevel, Meribel and Val Thorens, skiers have access to 600 km of pistes linked together by a unique network of ski lifts and ski runs. Within the Tarentaise Valley are various other resorts including Paradiski and Espace Killy which covers Val d’Isere and Tignes giving access to 300 km of pistes.

France has vast ski areas which open the door to skiers of all abilities.

Translated as “The Gateway to the Sun”, Les Portes du Soleil encompasses thirteen resorts and 286 ski slopes between Mont Blanc in France and Lake Geneva in Switzerland. Most of these resorts such as Les Gets and Morzine have grown around traditional valley villages, preserving a sense of heritage and mountain soul. With the quality and range of skiing available, these luxury ski resorts cater to a range of abilities, thus are particularly well suited to families with many excellent luxury ski chalets.

Other French resorts which deserve a mention include the charming town of Megeve, an authentic mountain village combining rustic style and sophistication in the Mont Blanc Massif. Also within touching distance of Mont Blanc is the bustling town of Chamonix, one of France’s oldest ski resorts and the centre of the most radical off-piste terrain in the Alps.
