The little known ski area of Manigod, linked to La Clusaz, is a new option from the award-winning French Alps specialist, Peak Retreats, this winter.
The company, which was named Best Ski Operator at the Telegraph Travel Awards 2023, has also added Plagne Montalbert to its huge portfolio of more than 70 French ski resort choices, and continues to develop the range of properties in its resorts, which includes standalone self-catered chalets and luxury self-catered apartments with spa facilities, as well as an extended collection of premium properties. Peak Retreats also continues to develop its rail options with a new route for those looking to take the train to the Alps.
Manigod is being sold as a great choice for beginners and families. Located in the Aravis Valley with links to La Clusaz, this resort is a friendly, authentic village situated between 1460m and 1780m. With great access via road, air and rail and a huge 209km of skiing, Manigod fits well into Peak Retreats’ repertoire. Opening for December 2023, Hameau de l’Ours is a 4* luxury residence with facilities including indoor heated pool, hot tub, and sauna.
“New additions to our programme in popular resorts such as Méribel and Flaine means more choice for our clients. We’re excited to add new resorts that we’ve had our eye on for a while too, the addition of hidden gem Manigod and the excellent value Plagne Montalbert, furthers our standing as the French Alps specialist with a comprehensive range of world-class resorts, hidden gems, and snow-sure ski villages,” said Alison Willis, General Manager
Peak Retreats is offering the Eurostar Snow Train this winter. This new service runs on Saturdays in the early part of the season from London St Pancras to the Alps with a simple change in Lille, and a return 8-nights later. Clients can choose from a selection of hotels in resorts just a short transfer from the stations served, including Méribel, Tignes and Arc 2000. Alternatively, they can book a 7-night apartment stay and add an extra night in a hotel in Bourg St Maurice or with a stay at Les Balcons de Belle Plagne, a final night can be added at the sister hotel to this property. Throughout the season, Peak Retreats can offer travel by train to the Alps via Lille or Paris by Eurostar and high-speed TGV.
