Are you beginning to plan your winter holiday? Have you considered a skiing holiday but thought it would break the bank? Well, think again, here’s why Montgenèvre offers a great value opportunity to hit the slopes this winter.
Montgenèvre is a leading family ski resort in the French Alps, offering 425km of snow-sure ski area, and enjoys nearly 300 days of sunshine a year. Some families dream of catching their winter sun on beaches around the world but why not build up your tan in the mountains? When you’re off the slopes grabbing lunch or having an afternoon resting the legs, you can catch those rays on a balcony whist taking in the mountain views.
You might be surprised to hear, figures show that a fully-loaded skiing trip with all the extras comes in comfortably less expensive than an action-packed holiday chasing the winter sun, in Egypt for example. Don’t get us wrong, we understand the enjoyment of the pool and the beach with the opportunity of a day-trip here and there, but is there any better feeling than the sun and wind on your face as you’re gliding down the pistes? Let our knowledgeable team take the stress out of planning the holiday for you, saving you from organising new activities each day so you can simply enjoy the adventure.
We may be a little biased, but we truly believe Montgenèvre is the best family resort in the French Alps. There are green and/or blue runs from the peaks of the resort, which wind their way back down into the main village so even young children and beginner skiers can feel they have conquered the mountains; there’s the “Bowl” area which is perfect for groups of varying abilities to enjoy some independence on all colours of pistes, but easily regroup at the café which they all come back in to; and the resort itself has a relaxed family atmosphere. Furthermore, with a quick transfer from Turin at 1 hour 20 minutes, your skis fitted and lift-pass in hand on arrival, you could be on the slopes on the very afternoon you arrive!
Here’s how Montgenèvre stacks up against the popular and equally attractive nearby resort of Val d’Isère:
You may have visited larger resorts with potentially higher peaks and bustling town centres, but with minimal queues at the chair lifts and more than enough terrain to explore for even the advanced skier, Montgenèvre definitely punches above its weight. All of this and the total cost of your holiday comes in at nearly 50% less than a holiday in larger more well-known resorts. What more is there to say?! Essentially, you can have your cake and eat it too.
So, there you have it – come and join us in snowy Montgenèvre, it may be your first or even your 20th holiday here!
