Have you been invited to travel to South France on vacation? If you are young and adventurous, you may be thinking that it’s a good idea to book a skiing holiday right away. After all, don’t you want to hit the slopes as soon as possible, so that you can head straight to the ski resorts? However, it can take a little bit of work on finding a local ski resort if you have never traveled to France before. Here are some things that you might want to keep in mind.
In some areas of France, like Les Gets, there are not many ski resorts. This can be both a good thing and a bad thing. While you may not find as many ski resorts available that you would like, it is still worth the effort to travel to this area because it is one of the friendliest skiing regions.
Another thing to consider is the terrain. Some of the most spectacular skiing can be found in the French Alps. While some of the highest peaks are located in Switzerland, France has some very challenging mountains that are only accessible by air. Therefore, if you are traveling to France for the first time, it may be wise to fly into one of the main airports in the country and then drive down to the French Alps to begin your adventure. Most people prefer to rent a ski boat during their trip down to the French Alps, but if you are adventurous, you may want to board your own ski lift.
Of course, the price will be one of your main concerns. South France is one of the most expensive countries in which to ski. However, if you plan carefully you can often find a ski resort that is affordable. For example, the famous Les Alpilles ski resorts are very reasonable, even for the tourists who are not planning on skiing for most of the day. As with most things in life, shopping and eating in France are generally inexpensive.
The best times to travel to South France for ski holidays are the winter months from June until November. The snow usually hits the high country around June, so this is usually the best time to go skiing. Since the snow typically lasts for almost three months throughout the ski season, the skiing is fairly long. However, during the other times when the snow doesn’t hit the ski slopes, the northern part of the country is open for visitors.
If you are interested in booking a trip to South France for your vacation, there are many options available to you. When choosing a place to stay, you may want to ask about staying at one of the more remote and boutique ski resorts that only have a handful of guest houses or villas. These private accommodations are normally run by local families who earn their living off the ski slopes. As a result, the accommodations tend to be more quiet, with much less crowding of tourists. Most of these lodges and cabins offer all of the modern amenities that you would expect from a modern hotel, including wi fi internet, round the clock room service, fireplaces and more.
