Luxury Ski: Focus On France

By Elegant Resorts Travel Experts

Posted: 03 November 2014

Lisa Groome, Travel Consultant “The ski team at Elegant Resorts make regular visits to our ski properties and most recently I stayed at the luxurious boutique hotel L’Apogée, Courchevel 1850. It’s perfect for very discerning couples and families who want to enjoy both great skiing and relaxing around the hotel. The ski-in and ski-out location on the Jardin Alpin is excellent and there are Ski Butlers to offer guests a helping hand, while inside there is a chalet-style feeling with cosy bar and lounge areas − including a smoking lounge − a wonderful spa and excellent children’s activities. If you wish to venture into the town to dine out or shop, it’s just a five-minute taxi drive away.”

Lorraine Earl, Travel Consultant “We’ve added Val Thorens to your list of choices in France which complements old favourites, Courchevel 1650 and1850, Les Gets, Megève, Méribel and Val d’Isère. Val Thorens is the highest ski resort in Europe so snow is pretty much guaranteed from November through to May. As part of Les Trois Vallées it offers access to an unrivalled selection of slopes, runs and modern ski lifts to suit skiers of all capabilities, as well as leisure facilities including around onehundred bars and restaurants, shops, the largest nightclub in the Alps and activities such as tobogganing and snow mountain-biking. Our featured hotels are Altapura and Hotel Koh-I Nor.”

Claire Lockley, Personal Assistant For Lorraine Earl “We are happy to advise on the ski schools with the best reputations and enjoy great relationships with many of them, including New Generation Ski & Snowboard School. This British ski school operates in most of our French ski resorts and caters for all levels of ability. Instructors are certified by BASI (British Association of Snowsport Instructors), so whether you’re looking for private or group ski lessons, to take part in a technical clinic to perfect your skills or a one off refresher session, you’ll be in great hands. Little ones are not left out either. For those aged 4 years old and above ski lessons, with Instructors that are experienced with working with children, run during school holidays on request.”

Christine Henderson, Personal Assistant For Dale Harris
“Once you’ve booked your ski holiday, our Ski Concierge Sevice is available to assist you with pre-arranging a host of extra touches including lift passes, private tuition and equipment hire. We can also make restaurant reservations at your hotel − which is a great idea for your first night in resort − or spa reservations so you can look forward to unwinding after your day on the slopes.”
