Where to Find Family-Friendly French Ski Resorts for Half-Term Break

If you are looking for an action-packed and exciting holiday that the whole family can enjoy this February half-term then look no further than ski holidays in France.

Packed full of exhilarating things to do, it would be a mistake to write this kind of break off simply because your children have never been on the slopes as many resorts are suitable for people of all abilities – including complete novices.

Indeed, there may be no greater bonding experience than learning this skill as a family and rounding off your break by racing down the piste together.

So, which are some of the best family-friendly ski resorts to be found in France?

One popular and affordable option is Superdevoluy, where you will find a host of activities on offer than can keep your kids entertained while you hit the slopes – including a nursery and snow gardens.

However, if your children are old and brave enough, it may be them leaving you behind as the ski training on offer should see them racing off on their own two skis in next to no time.

Another suitable option if you are looking for an affordable resort is Le Corbier, which is located in the Les Sybelles region of the French Alps.

As with many of these spots, the resort offers breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains, but its location more than 1,500 metres above sea level and its position as one of the highest resorts within the European Alps means that the scenery here really stands out from the crowd.

You can also have fun nature-spotting here, if you manage to drag yourself away from the 310 km of ski slopes.

Other options you may wish to consider include La Plagne, where ski schools and experienced and encouraging instructors will have your little ones beating you down the slopes by the end of the holiday.

Elsewhere, Les Menuires in the Belleville Valley of Les Trois Vallees is a popular choice with families because of all of the entertainment it has to offer, in addition to boasting a large selection of restaurants to cater to even the fussiest eater.
