Whether we like it or not, winter arrives in the UK! Although this autumn season has been remarkably prolonged, rain and colder weather have finally reached shores, just in time to begin planning a Christmas break!
While many Britons will have the opportunity to catch up with friends and family during the holidays, as well as many of them are likely to go on a somewhat more exciting break – such as staying in a secured lodge in a ski resort in Europe.
The unforgettable French Alps
For many, the preferred destination is the French Alps. After all, here you will find some of the best ski and snowboard slopes and slopes in the world, as well as some of the most popular resorts. Over the decades, this part of Europe – along with neighboring Italy, Switzerland and even Austria – has earned its reputation as a winter holiday destination par excellence and explains its popularity among tourists in and outside Britain.
But for anyone who is willing to pay the top dollar for a cottage in Val D Isere or Morzine, he'll be looking for more quiet or affordable options elsewhere in the country. This type of traveler will inevitably find that France has more than just an eye in terms of the range of its ski resorts.
With plenty of picturesque places to visit – and some great ski resorts – the Savoy region is ideal for those who want to enjoy tasty holiday cottages while remaining reliably separated from crowds of winter sports but within easy access to picturesque villages and natural Points of Interest.
One of the best resorts to enjoy all that Savoy has to offer is Peisey-Vallandry. This area, part of the alpine area known as Paradiski, offers a perfect combination of challenging slopes, breathtaking scenery and extraordinary activities and sports, making it ideal for families as well as for individual travelers or groups of friends.
Adrenaline addicts for any exciting trekking of the slopes are not enough, for example, enjoying the opportunity to engage in climbing on ice waterfalls or less – or paragliding, while families can enjoy snowshoeing, hiking, or even cultural sessions held in the resort.
Peisey-Vallandry also offers special children's days, so parents with small children can have a personal day to enjoy themselves on the slopes. The health club and regular entertainment events are also part of this resort, so tourists who choose a reserved cottage will get some of their skiing holidays!
For all these reasons and more, Peisey-Vallandry is an excellent choice under the radar for the Christmas break in France.
