Skiing France is a must for any dedicated skier as this country boasts some of the finest skiing in the world. With legendary resorts, some of the largest interlinked ski areas in the world and excellent ski schools / guides, it is easy to see why so many people take their ski holiday in France. However, skiing France is not just for those looking for the ultimate challenge as all standards of skiers will be catered for on their French ski holiday. France really is a great ski destination for everyone.
Many people believe that the best skiing France has to offer is in the Three Valleys. With a variety of interlinked resorts offering over 600km of skiing, this is undoubtedly a great destination for your ski holiday. France has it all when it comes to skiing, but the Three Valleys region is truly the best the country has to offer. This is what skiing France is all about; unlimited pistes, picturesque villages, great mountain restaurants and reliable snow.
For a great ski holiday, France cannot be bettered. The Three Valleys area in particular is naturally blessed with good snowfalls and, along with 1,200 snow cannons, your skiing holiday is virtually assured from Christmas through to the beginning of May. There is something for every standard of skier here, so whether you are looking for beautifully groomed pistes, bumps, steeps, or out of the way off-piste runs you will find it on your Trois Vall&ées skiing holiday.
M&éribel itself lies at the heart of the Three Valleys, making it an excellent base from which to explore over 600km of piste and limitless off piste. From La Chaudanne, every lift leads into a different valley; take the Burgin lift to Saulire for fashionable Courchevel, or Tougnete for the high altitude skiing of Val Thorens. The domain is immense and with the best lift system to be found anywhere, all levels of skier can ski the three valleys in a day without ever removing their skis.
In M&éribel, all the buildings are constructed in the traditional Savoyarde style from wood and stone, making M&éribel one of the most attractive ski resorts in France. This is why offers five luxury ski chalets situated in the resort's most exclusive enclaves, and have been operating here since 1991. Why not browse our selection and find that perfect chalet for your ski holiday France.
Part of the ski holiday France experience is the excellent quality restaurants, both on the mountain and in the villages, and the wonderful Savoyade cuisine makes an excellent lunch for weary skiers. Apres-ski is also an intrinsic part of any good ski holiday. France does après ski as well as any country and Méribel in particular has an abundance of great bars and clubs. Skiing France is as much about enjoying the great cuisine and après-ski as it is about tackling the world-class slopes.
There is something for everyone in M&éribel, convivial bars and every type of restaurant, from the gastronomic to the simple, offering crêpes and traditional Savoyarde cuisine. For non-skiers and skiers alike there are plenty of non-skiing diversions. There are many scenic walks around M&éribel and Mottaret and many of the mountain restaurants can be accessed from the gondolas, so while you are enjoying the best skiing France has to offer, the non-skiers in your family will still have plenty to keep them occupied.
If you are planning a ski holiday, France is without doubt the perfect choice. So why not book your next ski holiday with Purple Ski and discover Méribel and the Trois Vallees, the best skiing France has to offer.
