Chalet Bonnepierre is a luxurious, yet family friendly chalet, in the spectacular area of Alpe d’Huez. The chalet offers ski-in/ski-out options, for any level of ability and is in an exclusive development of chalets, just above the Berger complex, a short distance from the centre with the free shuttle also stopping regularly outside the chalet and is directly on the Tour de France road in summer. This atmospheric chalet offers lots of open space and high ceilings and was built of larch wood and dry stones…in a true Alpine tradition. The soft lighting and quality interior decor and furnishings, adds to this classy chalet’s unique atmosphere. You will enjoy relaxing in the open plan living area in front of the wood burning fireplace, before enjoying an evening meal either cooked by yourselves in the quality and well equipped kitchen, if booking self catered, or from our own chef if you choose the excellent half board catered option….or our own pre cooked meal delivery service, which is another option.
There are five luxury bedrooms all stylishly decorated, four of which have access onto balconies with stunning views over the mountains. The master king bedroom has en suite facilities. Two further bedrooms (one king and one twin bedded room) adjoin the same shower room, making these ideal for a family. An additional twin room has a shower room adjacent to it. The large Alpine “dormitory” bedroom in the loft area, has four single beds and an additional bathroom and is the ideal place for any children with you, or for adults who don’t mind sharing. Thus the chalet can sleep up to 12.
On returning to the chalet on your skis, you can dry them off in the heated ski boot room on the ski boot dryers and you can then sample the excellent spa facilities, which include your very own hot tub and steam room, which will help you relax and chill, before the evenings events unfurl! This truly is an excellent chalet choice for your party of up to 12 and is bookable on a sole occupancy basis only.

France is the most popular Alpine country for British skiers and snowboarders and generally offers a more modern aspect of skiing in relation to towns and villages with many villages built around convenience for skiers and boarders alike.
There are of course a number of traditional French ski resorts. Courchevel is a key gateway to the vast area of the ‘Les Trois Vallæcopy;es’ which claims to be the biggest linked ski region in the world. Its rival is the Portes du Soleil network of ski areas (with Avoriaz and Morzine at its heart) which spreads across the French border into Switzerland.Pretty much the same size as the 3 Valleys, but both argue as to which is the largest, but its a close call.
The Three Valleys is dominated by four major resorts: Courchevel, Mæcopy;ribel, Les Menuires and Val Thorens – the highest ski resort in the Alps. Each of these four resorts has more than enough terrain to keep a skier or boarder happily and easily occupied for a week or more during a skiing holiday in France, so the opportunity to ski all four, as well as La Tania and St Martin de Belleville, provides innumerable options.
In the Portes du Soleil, neighbouring Avoriaz and Morzine are gateways to a dozen or more family ski resorts in France and Switzerland. Chamonix, dominated by the Mont Blanc Massif, is another major attraction with several resorts scattered along the valley, including Argentière, rated by some keen off-piste skiers and boarders as one of the best ski resorts in France – or the entire Alps for that matter. They will also be keen to try the Vallæcopy;e Blanche – a classic off-piste descent – with a high-mountain guide.
Another resort overlooked by the impressive Mont Blanc is Flaine, linked with a handful of resorts including Les Carroz and Samoens, with some of the most extensive slopes in France. That’s even more true of the Tignes-Val d’Isère Ski Area – the linked areas of Val d’Isère and Tignes – formerly called Espace Killy after the celebrated Olympic triple-gold medallist Jean-Claude Killy. Together these neighbouring resorts provide some of the most exciting skiing in France, particularly for off-piste enthusiasts. Tignes has the added advantage of regular glacier skiing on the Grande Motte glacier and like Val Thorens is regarded as THE most snow sure French resorts.
Two more giants of the French skiing world which are co joined and undoubtedly among the best family ski resorts in France, are La Plagne and Les Arcs.The area is known as Paradiski, linked by a huge cable car. La Plagne has a dozen or so linked hamlets and villages spread across slopes in all directions, while Les Arcs too, like Courchevel, has a handful of ski villages and satellite resorts at various altitudes.Arc 1950 and Vallandry are favourites.
La Clusaz is a traditional pretty village with some great skiing and ideal for people looking for a short transfer from Geneva.Great for families, short breaks or just for a week its a lovely traditional village we rate highly.Megeve, also offering a short transfer from Geneva, is a larger traditional village with a modern twang and again rates highly on our list for aesthetic beauty and convenience.Definitely another must see and ski resort.
Further south in the French Alps and accessed via flights to Grenoble and Lyon, are two more great resorts: Les Deux Alpes and Alpe d’Huez. High and snow sure and in the same part of the world, one the same ski pass, is the fabulous Serre Chevalier ski network, linked with the UNESCO world heritage site of Briançon and enjoying the wonderful Roman baths in Montier.
Montgenèvre also deserves a mention and if flying into Turin, the transfers are short, plus you have the opportunity to ski in both France and Italy during your ski holiday. Montgenèvre also boasts some of the best snow conditions in the French alps. Family friendly and snow sure La Rosiere also shares the same pass with La Thuile also in Italy and comes recommended especially as peak times as its quieter than other French ski resorts.
