Whilst you will of course find a ‘Father Christmas’ in every shopping centre up and down the country (how does he do that?), why not make 2016 the year you visit him somewhere very special?
Being a company which focuses solely on family ski holidays, our thoughts turn to Christmas rather early! For families with young children this time of year is truly magical, and how you choose to spend those precious few days can be a big decision.
Christmas Ski Holidays – Les Gets
The family friendly ski resort of Les Gets, situated in the popular Portes Du Soleil area in the French Alps, is the perfect location for a family ski holiday. An accredited “Famille Plus Montagne” resort, it caters brilliantly for young children. With a variety of beginner slopes, long winding blue runs, and an array of pistes perfect for intermediates and more competent skiers, it offers the perfect base for a family ski break at any point in the season.
Where Les Gets really comes into its own however, is at Christmas. Steeped in traditional Savoyard charm, at this time of year the picturesque Alpine village is adorned with festive lights, and everyone really pulls out the stops to create a truly magical environment. Spend your holiday exploring the vast ski area by day, before cosying up and enjoying the festive atmosphere in the evenings.
Meeting Father Christmas
As it turns out, Les Gets isn’t just the home of Ski Famille, but residence of choice for Father Christmas. In a small grotto high above the resort, hidden by snow topped fir trees and only reachable by those in the know, “Père Noël” and his elves spend the year preparing for the big day. With this in mind, why not combine this year’s ski trip with a chance to meet Father Christmas?
Meeting at Father Christmas’ special train station in the centre of the village, visitors are taken to the enchanted forest to experience the magic. After being greeted by his little helpers, take a guided tour of his home and workshop, and discover just what everyday life is like when you live with the real Father Christmas!
A Ski Famille Christmas
Following your visit to the Enchanted Forest, head back to your cosy Ski Famille chalet and enjoy the festivities. With your children tucked up in bed dreaming about meeting Father Christmas you can sit back, have glass of fizz by the fire and indulge in a home cooked meal by one of our fully trained chefs.
We firmly believe that ski breaks make for the best family holidays, and when you combine it with a visit to Father Christmas you can’t go wrong. So instead of making the usual trip to the shopping centre this year, why not take your children to visit him for real in the French Alps and enjoy a week of Alpine fun whilst you’re at it!
