Resorts in the French Alps offer family-friendly skiing and hardcore downhill adventure. Gorgeous wooden chalets, coolly contemporary apartments in traditional chalet-style buildings and piste-side homes where skiers can clip on their boots outside their front door are all available.
The ultra chic resorts of Megeve, Courchevel and Meribel are three of the French Alps most sought after destinations. All offer excellent restaurants, lively bars and an efficiently connected ski area. Meribel and Courchevel form part of the Les Trois Vallées, the largest ski area in the world with 372 miles of perfect pistes.
Megeve with its car-free and carefully preserved medieval core has a quiet charm helped by a real affection from chic Parisians who love to holiday there.
