Family-friendly ski holidays in catered ski chalets with in-chalet childcare

Mountain Fun for all the family

Happy Children = Happy Parents!

Caring Professional Childcare

Welcome to Ski Famille, the family ski holiday specialist that proves skiing with children can be an enjoyable experience for everyone, with no need to compromise on the quality of your resort or accommodation.

A combination of high quality childcare and carefully chosen catered family ski chalets in superb locations means guests have a fantastic family ski holiday with children whatever their age.

2014 saw us shortlisted for the World Snow Awards and we won “Best Tour Operator Innovation” as judged by ATOUT France (French Tourist Office) and ABTOF. We were delighted to be ‘Highly Commended’ for the 2012 and 2013 Junior Magazine design awards in the “Best Family Tour Operator” category. We are currently shortlisted as “Best Family Ski Operator” in the 2016 Family Traveller Awards.

It was our first skiing trip with the children, and they loved it. We will definitely return to La Plagne and the beautiful Chalet Delphine.
