Vallorcine – Chamonix’s Secret Getaway!

We love skiing in Chamonix, but sometimes the crowds and the buses can be frustrating. But only 20 minutes away is Chamonix’s secret getaway – Vallorcine, a traditional and pretty French village that links directly to Le Tour. Our friends at the Bellevue Alpine Lodge – a British owned gite and B&B in Vallorcine – bring us up to date with the skiing in the area: The closest lift to the Bellevue Alpine Lodge is the modern gondola that lifts

What Makes a Perfect Winter Holiday

Everyone has different ideas of what makes a fantastic winter ski holiday; whether it’s enough fresh powder on the mountain each morning to lose your skis in, or if it’s a beautiful chalet to return to after a hard day on the slopes, the French Alps offers a wide choice for everyone. Some people love the luxury of ski holidays; opting for a catered chalet with all the add ons, allowing them to relax in sumptuous luxury, whereas others prefer

How to Have the Worst Ski Holiday of Your life

As we’re always on the hunt for interesting, funny and original ski blogs, today we’re particularly proud to have our friend Belle writing a guest post for us.

Top Tips for Scoring the Best Deals on Ski Accommodation

Skiing has never been and sadly never will be the most bargain-basement of pursuits, though is of course worth every penny and more. Lucky for most us, skiing is at least no longer reserved for the very upper-echelons of society and even those of us holidaying on a shoestring are finding savvy ways and means to hit the slopes without taking too big a hit to the wallet. We are firm advocates for milking enjoyment out of the lowest expenditures

Vallorcine – A Hidden Treat Worth Looking For

Right at the end of the Chamonix Valley lies a series of hamlets that make up the village of Vallorcine – a village that’s easy to miss though very, very worthy of your attention. Lying just a stone’s throw from the border with Switzerland, Vallorcine is home to just 400 residents and has the kind of hidden, secret and rustic alpine charm that’s already been eradicated across 99% of the world. This really is the kind of place that makes

La Plagne in a Nutshell

Of all the resorts in the French Alps, one of the names that often goes overlooked in terms of first-picks for the masses is La Plagne – and what a shame this is! Rather than a single resort in its own right, La Plagne is in fact the collective name of a group of purpose-built ski villages and resorts high up in the Tarentaise area. What’s more, the 2003 link between La Plagne and Les Arcs has opened up literally

Courchevel – Four Villages, One Stunning Year-Round Resort

Each and every year, more and more towns, villages and resorts all over the French Alps are being discovered by the tourist hoards heading over for their annual jollies on the white stuff. More often than not it doesn’t take long at all for the next big thing to become yesterday’s news, or the biggest secret in the Alps to become the most over-travelled destination of them all and lose most if its lustre. If fact, it takes something really
