Peak Retreats, the ski holiday company which has built its reputation by offering holidays to the smaller, traditional and more affordable French resorts that provide the same access to many of the world’s biggest ski areas as their more famous neighbours, celebrates its 20th season this winter.
To celebrate, Peak Retreats are expanding the range of French resorts they offer to more than 75, to give it a leading position for the vast range of destinations offered. This time it is those big-name, high-altitude neighbours that can now be booked by the company, for example Tignes le Lac, Val Thorens, Les Arcs and La Plagne. The operator has also expanded its accommodation in existing resorts, including Samoëns (below) and La Rosière.
Resorts like Val Thorens and La Plagne allow clients to enjoy beautiful skiing and conditions at the very beginning and end of the season, whilst also encompassing the unique après-ski atmosphere for which high-altitude is known.
“These are resorts and properties that our team of alpine specialists, some of whom have been us almost since the beginning, already know and love and are excited to share with clients. It feels like a natural progression,” commented Peak Retreats founder Xavier Schouller.
The additions mean an expanded range of premium properties, from stunning standalone self-catered chalets on the slopes (like La Cascade in Arc 2000 and Arpoza in Arc 1800, which both have their own plunge pool and sauna), to luxury self-catered apartments like those at Chalet Cocoon in Val Thorens, whose apartments feature a private hot tub on their own terrace overlooking the resort.
