France ski resorts

Truly world-class is the only way to describe skiing in France. Ski resorts here are more like meccas than mountain towns.


France has the widest choice of places to stay. Choose from cosy catered chalets with open fires and chalet hotels with the added bonus of a bar to fully serviced hotels, including our flagship Neilson Hotel La Tovière.

France at a glance
  • Truly world-class resorts
  • Snowsure conditions
  • Glacier skiing
  • Huge ski areas
  • Breathtaking scenery
  • Superb cuisine

The country's huge mountains, high altitude ski areas and an excellent snow record make it perfect for everyone from cautious first timers to well seasoned skiers and snowboarders looking for some new terrain to explore.


French ski resorts range from the small and traditional where life is noticeably slower paced (except for the lifts) to the well-thought-out, purpose-built variety where convenience is king.

Après-ski. The wide choice of resorts also provides a range of nightlife to pick and choose from. If you're looking for quiet and laid-back, head to Les Menuires. For those looking to dance on tables in ski boots, try the infamous Folie Douce bars in Val d'Isère.


You'll also find that there are stacks of facilities for children including Neilson-run kids' clubs in some resorts.

Eat like a local

Eating like a local

French cuisine is well known for being delicious and hearty. French mountain food is no different and is actually well suited to a ski or snowboard holiday with plenty of meats, cheeses, breads and tasty snacks.


Breakfast is always a treat with fresh croissants and pastries. Lunch is a time to refuel with a warming Tartiflette; cheese, lardons and potatoes (with a bit more cheese)! French cheeses range from mild and tasty to blow your socks of strong and tasty. And you can't miss indulging in a crêpe and hot chocolate after the slopes close.
