Ski chalet holidays in Austria, France and Italy
A ski holiday is a great opportunity for family and friends to get together, and the most pleasant way of enjoying each other’s company is to book a ski chalet. This innovative solution is a particular favourite when groups of friends book a holiday together, but can also be a cost-effective way of housing large family groups. Crystal Ski has a choice of chalets in Austria, France and Italy, and each comes with the personal touches of a chalet host as well as the promise of a less formal experience than a hotel. It really is the best way to wind down after a day on the slopes.
Skiing in Austria
When skiing in Austria ski chalets are available at most of the resorts in the Alps, and come in a range of different sizes. The major Austrian ski resorts of Mayrhofen, St Anton and Kitzbuhel among others are home to a choice of chalets that sleep from four people and up to 40 in some cases and many come with additional offers such as free drinks included and discount equipment hire. All are within easy reach of the slopes, well equipped, comfortable and surprisingly affordable. This could be the most cost-effective way of taking a skiing holiday in one of the most picturesque regions of Europe.
Skiing in France
French ski chalets are also present close to the major resorts, including many in the tremendous Three Valleys Ski Area, the biggest of its kind in Europe. Famous resorts such as Les Deux Alpes and Tignes have plenty of choice when it comes to Crystal chalets, and like the Austrian ones they come at an excellent price with all mod-cons included. Close to the skiing areas and with excellent facilities nearby – restaurants and bars included – a family or group skiing holiday in the French Alps has never been a more attractive proposition.
Skiing in Italy
Over the border in Italy ski chalets are also plentiful, and while it is not as popular as its neighbours, northern Italy is home to some of the most exhilarating skiing in Europe. It also tends to be less expensive, and chalets in resorts such as Val di Fassa, home to a vast array of slopes, and the very pretty Selva val Gardena come highly recommended. With good local food in close proximity and some spectacular scenery and ski runs, Italy is a place that you really should put on your shortlist of places to go skiing.
At Crystal Ski much care is taken to make sure the facilities are up to scratch and all chalets on offer are of the highest order. You can also search for chalet deals, which include all-inclusive packages for added value for money, and there is plenty of information on travel and transport. Europe’s traditional skiing areas will always be among the best in the world, but rather than booking into a hotel and having to undergo all the formalities, it may be time to consider the very real advantages of a chalet ski holiday, especially if you are part of a large group.
