GET LOWER PRICES AND BETTER VALUE ON ALPINE HOLIDAYS WITH THE FRENCH ALPS SPECIALIST
Winter - Get the best skiing in the French Alps - Affordable quality with great value prices are the key features of winter sports holidays for 2010/11 with French Alps specialist Peak Retreats (www.peakretreats.co.uk 0844 576 0123), recently voted Best Ski Company for the second year running in the annual Guardian & Observer Travel Awards.
Peak Retreats 2010/11 winter holiday choices feature nearly 40 resorts which are not only cheaper and more pleasant to stay in than their more famous ‘big name’ neighbours, but also have queue-free, high speed lift links to the major ski areas. With groceries, bar drinks and restaurant meals - ski school and equipment hire - also cheaper, the savings can be huge.
For example prices start from £207 per person for 7 nights in the brand new luxury 4* MGM residence Chalet Des Dolines with an indoor pool, sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi in the historic ski resort of Montgenèvre in the Southern Alps. With full lift pass and ski hire the price is still only £420pp.
Peak Retreats, which is ABTA bonded and the only specialist to exclusively feature the French Alps, has new features for 2010/11:
NEW TRAIN PACKAGES: Peak Retreats now offer rail packages with trains linking a large number of featured resorts on the Direct Ski train from St Pancras to Moutiers and Bourg St Maurice as well Eurostar to Paris, connecting with TGV services to the Alps. Packages from £127pp.
WINE WEEK: Combine wine tasting and learning with gastronomic dinners - and work the excess off with skiing around the pretty village of Samoens - on a special VIP 7-night holiday departing 15 January 2011. Price is just £149pp, for 5 wine workshops, 3 gourmet dinners and a full day skiing with a guide. This can be combined with a week's self-catering in a brand new 4-star luxury MGM residence for an additional £247pp based on 4 sharing a two bedroom apartment and including FlexiPlus Eurotunnel crossing with a car.
Summer - Peak Retreats 2011 selection features the most sought after traditional picture postcard villages in the French Alps - and top quality accommodation - with the addition of more luxury/4-star chalets and residences with indoor and outdoor swimming pools. Family- run country hotels are also offered.
The Alps in Summer remain one of France’s best kept secrets, nothing can beat the astounding beauty of the rugged mountain peaks and glaciers, crystal clear mountain lakes and lush green meadows. Each resort offers a multitude of activities for families and couples alike including walking, mountain biking, and summer glacier ski. French Lakes such as Annecy and Evian are also included in the program.
SUMMER GLACIER SKI: Peak Retreats offer a Ski Active program in the resort of Les 2 Alpes. Ski Active packages are available from mid June until the end of August and include accommodation in a 4-star residence, a 6-day ski pass, free sports passes for 3 half days, mountain biking with guide and white water sports from £472pp.
TOUR DE FRANCE: Peak Retreats guests staying in Valloire will be ideally placed to see the denouement of the 2011 Tour de France as it nears its end in the Alps when for the first time there are two climbs of the famous Galibier Pass.
