This package holiday to Prince des Ecrins Apartments in Les Deux Alpes, France departs Saturday 8th April 2017, for a 7 night stay on a "self catering" board basis. A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged. It's not included in the basic price of your holiday and is usually paid locally. For reference, the average charged in winter 15/16 was between 50p and £2 per person, per night.

Glacier Skiing Awesome après Loads to do

Gobsmacking views of Mont Blanc aren’t the only bonus of the glacier - this ‘upside down’ ski resort is one of the most snow sure in the Alps, so much so that you can ski here in the summertime. Much loved for its après ski, the town's main strip is bursting with some of the best bars in the mountains.

Grenoble is the closest airport with a transfer time of just under 2 hours, making the resort really accessible by road. The resort was first used for skiing as early as 1925, when the first ski tow was erected. Unfortunately, this rather Neanderthal piece of equipment fell down a mere 15 minutes after the opening ceremony! The “Les Deux Alpes”, as we know it today, was established in 1946. It is commonly assumed that the name is derived from the two mountains on either side of the town, when in reality the na...
There are plenty of beginner slopes on the front face with runs like les Vikings and Les Gentianes for those learning to ski. The great thing about LDA is that there are some terrific beginner slopes higher up the mountain so new skiers can really experience the benefits of skiing at altitude. The Cretes area at 2100m is the favourite spot for ski schools, with the Ski Escalator a welcome aid to those learning to ski. A top tip for beginners is to either ski the green back to resort early or opt for the gondola ...
You don’t have to look far to find good après in L2A. The best place to start has to be the Panoramique bar, known as Pano bar to the locals. This slopeside restaurant, based at 2,600m really comes alive between 3pm and 5pm every day with a DJ set that will vibrate through your whole body. At the bottom of the piste, Umbrella bar is a great place to keep the party going. If you want to take the night further then Smithy’s is the place to go, with great modern music as well as a few nights of live entertainmen...

"the negative part of a good week"

Ann Reid, Ayr
3/ out of 5
We enjoyed the holiday, the resort was fantastic and the snow was superb but the apartments were a slightly different matter... The location of the accommodation is not ideal as you’re quite a bit away from the centre of town – they’re quite high up in comparison to the resort centre. There is a bus service that takes you down in the mornings which for the sake of not having to hump your equipment about makes things easier. The problem is that the bus stops running early in the evening so if you have a meal after skiing, there’s no service at the time you want to come back. You have to climb up several sets of metal steps which is quite a climb - we’re reasonably fit and had to stop to catch our breath - it would be an absolute nightmare with children. On the main we ate out every night so we were ultra fit by time we’d climbed back! We discovered towards the end of the week that there’s ski storage in the resort bit (which you’d end up paying for), but even walking back without ski boots was hard work. Once you did get back, we had a one bedroomed apartment which was pretty basic but fine and adequate for our needs. We were a group of 4 and besides the ones in the bedroom, the other beds were in the living area (the usual sofa beds you had to unfold each evening). The apartments also have a sauna which is chargeable.
