Yes, these are the three inevitable things in life folks; we’re just coming to the end of the mammoth summer holidays, the iron-on labels are barely cool and already minds are turning to the next school holiday. With October half term a mere eight weeks away and the Christmas celebrations bearing down, what will you be doing to entertain the family? Will you be considering a winter break this year instead of the usual holiday activities?
If, like us, you didn’t manage to get away over the summer, then a winter break could be for you. Leading holiday provider Pierre & Vacances has a wide range of Ski destinations in France and a veritable buffet of premium accommodation that is spacious, equipped to the highest standards and – most importantly for parents – child friendly. Most of the accommodation can offer the basic safety features you’d expect, such as bed rails and socket protectors, and a number of other items, such as baby kits and childrens’ games are available on request. The ‘bits and bobs’ of a skiing holiday, like lift passes and so on can also be arranged through the company for an extra fee.
Where spa and swim facilities adjoin the accommodation, for example, L’Amara in Avoriaz, there is also an indoor heated paddling pool and childrens’ area and a full range of childrens’ clubs to keep everyone entertained.
