France has the cost-effective, practical and hassle-free nature of all-inclusive down pat – the concept was born here, and the nation does a jolly good job at staying at the forefront of the industry.
There are dozens of different AI packages out there, from all-inclusive hotels to chalets with food, drink and extras like lift passes and ski hire thrown in. The specifics included differ from property to property, so it’s worth asking our ski specialists what comes with the holiday you’re interested in.
There were seventeen Club Med hotels in the French Alps last time we checked, and we wouldn’t be surprised if more cropped up here in the next few years. This French company was the world’s first to introduce a holiday where all the essentials are included in one cost, and they’ve had a roaring success. When you book a room in one of their hotels, packages usually include all the food and drink you could want for, group ski/snowboard lessons (or guiding for experts) AND your lift pass. Some hotels throw in kids clubs too, to sweeten the deal for families. Just sort out your ski hire and you’re good to go.
A handful of independent French hotels opt for a similar all-in program, where as well as full board when it comes to mealtimes, you can find things like free bars, equipment rental and lift passes as part of the package.
One thing the French Alps are far from short of is chalets, and some offer packages where on top of the traditional chalet catering (of food and wine on six nights out of seven), the likes of ski passes and ski hire come in the overall cost.
