For once there is some good news for families who are restricted to booking their annual ski break during the February half term holiday. Unlike previous years, the main UK half term week for 2012 (11th to 18th Feb) does not coincide with the busiest holiday week in France and across Europe, meaning that accommodation prices are significantly lower than in 2011. Lagrange’s accommodation prices for half term 2012 are between £100 and £400 less, when compared to the equivalent UK holiday week this year (19th to 26th Feb).
Lagrange offer a wide range of ski apartments that are perfect for making the most of these savings, including a two bedroom apartment at Les Fermes de Samoens in the pretty village resort of Samoens – £1125 for the 2012 half term week, compared to £1420 in 2011. For families wishing to enjoy the luxury of a ski-in/ski-out location in the heart of the La Plagne ski domain, try a two bedroom apartment in Les Chalets Edelweiss, located in the Plagne 1800 – £1880 for the 2012 half term week, compared to £2295 in 2011. Or for the budget conscious there are one bedroom alcove apartments available in the Cybèle residence in Brides-les-Bains for only £776 in 2012, a reduction of £288 on the 2011 half term rates.
Bookings are now open for the Lagrange 2011/12 ski programme, featuring one of the widest ranges of French resorts, from villages to large ski domains. Accommodation options include budget apartments, high-standard residences with excellent communal facilities, self-catered chalets and short break hotels. All of the prices above are shown as accommodation only, but Lagrange also offer self-drive packages (with half term ferry crossings from £99/car or Eurotunnel from £100/car), rail packages and private/shared transfers.
