Picture a classic mountain village in winter with snow-capped wooden chalets, quaint little streets, tree-lined pistes and eternally snowy mountain peaks and you're picturing Montgenèvre in France.
As one of the oldest and most picturesque ski resorts in France, Montgenèvre has plenty of heritage. But better than that, it consistently sits in the top six French resorts for snow depth and snow quality.
The resort lies on the French/Italian border so has the charm of both countries. You can also expect fantastic food, wine and a laid-back way of life you associate with France and Italy.
Much of the village is now pedestrianised and perfect for a slow stroll, but there’s not much in the way of shopping and après-ski is centred around a few bars. There have been some recent developments such as a state-of-the-art Aqua Centre which have improved the choice of off-the-piste activities.
