The rest of the holiday, they’ll have so much fun meeting new friends, trying new experiences and mostly play in the snow - it’ll be the best time of their lives (and so it is for you too!)

#2 - The festive atmosphere is truly magical

What would be Christmas without its trees, snow decoration and warm lights? Walk along the resort and feel the Christmas magical atmosphere everywhere! Our teams will make sure your stay is stunning from start to end and that you’ll truly feel the Christmas spirit wherever you go.

Savour mouthwatering gourmet Christmas meals prepared by international chefs... with the peace-of-mind knowing we're doing it all - the planning, cooking and clean-up - so you can just sit back and enjoy spending time with your family.
