Saint Sorlin is brilliant for families, especially those with younger children, due to their incredibly accommodating choice of ski passes and brilliant choice of off the slope activities. Self-catering is great option for families, as meals in catered accommodation can be late, leaving children a bit hungry. The Residence Les Fermes are right on the slopes, so children won’t have to carry heavy equipment very far. Some apartments blocks come with extra wellness facilities like swimming pools and saunas, if this is something your family is interested in, give us a call to discuss your options.
If the little ones are likely to be in ski-school all week, choose the ‘beginners only’ pass, which gives access to the greens around the resort, so parents don’t have to waste money paying for red and black runs the kids won’t go near.
If you’re happy to potter around a few runs for the week as a family, the ‘small area’ pass gives access to a few greens, a couple of blues, reds and a black, so you’re not paying for a full ski pass if you know you’re not going to use it.
Ski school provisions are good, with the ESF offering lessons for children over 3 and a snow garden, which combines skiing and indoor activities for really little ones. The Tourist Office also provides a list of evening babysitters once the season has begun.
When the kids need a break from the mountain, the choice of ‘stuff’ to do is really impressive - take them to the paintball field if they need wearing out. The Tourist Office puts on lots of events throughout the season, like freestyle demos and snow carnivals to ensure family fun is easy to find.
For a super stress free holiday, let us do the hard work and choose a package that includes flights and transfers, or channel crossings for families who enjoy a road trip. Alternatively, if you’ve not got as far as organising travel, or if you’ve already got it sorted, book your accommodation on its own.
