That is where we come in. We have got years of experinece putting togther family holidays and the one thing that we have learnty over the years is that with a family ski holiday the kids come first.

Every family is different and where certain features of one accommodation might work for some they may not work for others. The big thing to think about is what accommodation type are you after? Catered chalet, hotel or self catered? you might be a family of 4 who want your own privacy without sharing your accommodation with anyone else in which case a self actered apartment would be perfect for what you need. However, if your party is slightly bigger and you still don't want to share your accommodation then a catered chalet for sole use might be the way forward. Alternatively you might prefer to book in to a social chalet hotel where you can meat other like minded parents around the dinner table and where your children will be sure to make loads of friends throughout the week.
There are litteraly hundreds of ski resorts to choose from so picking the right one for your family can be a tough task but we are more than happy to help you along the way. With youngchildren you might want a specifically family friendly resort such as Les Gets or La Rosiere or Flaineor if you have got a family with a mixture of child ages then you might want to look at somewhere such as the 3 Valleys where the resorts and the skiing are still great for young kids but also offer a bit more for the older ones as well.
