Once Christmas is over, nostalgia quickly sets in. And the best remedy is to plan… a skiing holiday! Wooden chalet, snowshoe walks, Savoyard fondues, in short, just things that already make you drool (yes, we can see you). The only downside is that finding accommodation can really put you off going to spend your next vacation in the mountains. Because we too have spent too much time getting worked up to book an apartment, we’ve decided to make a selection of the best sites for you to book your ski holidays. We save you time but you will still have to drop a ticket huh. Ski holidays what.
Choose your destination, fill in the dates, and you just have to choose. You can rely on the ratings and multiple reviews to know where you are going. Also take advantage of the Airbnb Experiences service, to enrich your stay with unusual activities.
The last minute specialist (but not only, you can also do it in advance) offers more than 150 ski resorts and you can choose accommodation only, accommodation + skipass (the package that gives you access to the lifts mechanics) or the all-inclusive formula with additional ski equipment. If you’re a specialist in “going on the run”, know that here you can book a few days before your departure while taking advantage of attractive prices.
This site offers more than 6000 stays in all the major ski resorts in France. And if you do not know where to go, you can answer a test of 10 questions which will allow you to determine which station suits you best. And for students or people with a limited budget, the site offers you financial aid that covers 80% of the cost of each beneficiary’s stay. Of course there are a lot of conditions, we let you do the trick.
Want to leave without spending too much? Take advantage of low prices and their special offers throughout the year. For family stays it is ideal since you can find apartment rentals for up to 9 people. The little extra we like: its location in Savoie, which guarantees us the knowledge and local expertise of the advisers for a personalized opinion.
If you are looking for affordable accommodation, we advise you to go your way. Here it’s a club atmosphere with somewhat upscale accommodation. You will have the choice between residences, club hotels and chalets. The site offers half-board, all-inclusive stays and a formula with the club included for your children (from 18 months to 17 years old). Convenient for keeping your kids busy and going skiing cushy.
Pierre & Vacances is the specialist in top-of-the-range mountain holidays. Their holiday centers are always very well located, right in the heart of the resorts and offer numerous facilities for your après-ski evenings: swimming pool, jacuzzi, spa, sports halls, restaurants and bars, cinema… And so as not to run everywhere when you arrive, the site offers to give you your ski passes as soon as you arrive. You understood, here you will be pampered and it’s rather pleasant.
The site offers slightly fewer stations and accommodations on each of the stations than these competitors. On the price side, you can find really nice accommodation at very reasonable prices (residences with swimming pool, jacuzzi, ready for the slopes, etc.). And know that some residences are approved by VACAF which will allow you to leave at an even lower price (if eligible of course). As for the amount of aid, it is calculated according to your family quotient (25, 40 or 60% of the total amount of your stay).
This is clearly the site with the most practical interface to use! Everything is fluid, the filters are super simple, you’ll have all the info at a glance and won’t spend hours opening a billion tabs. You will even have a map with details of the most popular and practical areas. On the offers side, Momondo being a price comparator, you will have the best results from big booking sites (Booking, Abritel, Opodo…). It can therefore save you from going to see each of the sites… even if, in fact, we still advise you to check the offers directly on the other sites if you do not find what you are looking for since you will have more choice there.
Ski Express is a holiday comparator and allows you to have a maximum of offers on a single site (Odalys, Club Med, Néméa, Booking, etc.). You will have the choice among more than 600,000 vacation or hotel rentals, all-inclusive formulas but also stays for less than 200€ and the possibility of searching by mountain range. You can also book only your skis there if it suits you. In short, it’s the site that saves you time and gives you a lot of choice.
This specialist in mountain stays will give you access to a wide choice whether you are going with 2 or 16 people (yes, there is a very practical selection of Large Capacity accommodation). And if you don’t want to worry, you can choose to book your accommodation with your package and even with your equipment.
The site offers thousands of offers for ski holidays all over the country, with a search engine allowing you to effectively refine your criteria: mountain range, resort, holiday formula, etc. It aggregates offers from other sites such as Ski -Planet and Maeva so you won’t find anything excluded and the sale will be done on the partner site, but at least you will have a choice.
Fancy a sporting holiday and meeting new people? With the UCPA, embark on a dynamic and athletic stay (wouuuuuh). And the least we can say is that you will have the choice: downhill skiing, snowboarding, freeriding, off-piste, ski touring, but also learning stays for beginners. You will be supervised by a guide and in a group spirit specific to the UCPA experience.
Sunweb is the specialist for your sun and ski holidays. The teams are committed to offering you only the best prices, which is why you will find a limited choice of destinations on their site.
