Family ski holidays in France

With 30% of the world’s main ski resorts being located in France, to help you choose your perfect destination, the French have categorised their resorts to help with this decision.

Other categories include large domain resort, traditional village resort, snow rider resort, club resort and spa resort, disabled ski resort and Nordic skiing. A resort is not limited to one category only and in fact most will fit at several categories meaning that nobody in the family misses out.

Family Plus

The Family Plus Mountain Resort (Famille Plus Montagne Resorts) category is a unique national tourism accreditation that signifies an ideal destination for family holidays. In a country where children learn to ski from an early age, resort facilities and services have been improved and structured to meet the requirements of families with children staying in mountain resorts.

The French take this so seriously that a list of some 110 criteria around infrastructure, resort entertainment, activities, discovery of the mountain and mountain heritage, accommodation and restaurant facilities, amenities, transport and safety are considered.

The resort categorised as ͞Famille Plus͟, aims to welcome both children and adults with tailor-made infrastructure, a creche for children from 6 months, entertainment for all ages, a budget to suit everyone, activities to be enjoyed by both adults and children separately as well as together with professionals to take care of the children.

Many resorts offer free skiing for young children and other family lift pass deals or access to other activities aside from skiing. Ski schools aim to make the learning experience a fun one with childcare solutions that allow parents that precious full day out on the pistes.

In the Haute Savoie area alone there are some 24 resorts with the label ͞Famille Plus͟: Arêches, Aussois, Châtel, Combloux, Courchevel, La Clusaz, La Rosiere, Le Corbier, Le Grand Bornand, Les Carroz, Les Gets, Les Houches, Les Karellis, Les Menuires, Megève, Méribel, Montchavin, Morzine, Praz sur Arly, Saint Gervais, Samoëns, Val d’Isère, Valmorel and Val Thorens!
