Eclipse Ski – ski accommodation

Here we are again its ski season and there is a buzz in the air, everyone is getting rather excited and planning their ski holiday, where do you want to stay? It is simply down to a matter of choice do you prefer staying in a hotel, a catered chalet or self-catering ski apartment? There is a lot of choice and all are wonderful in their own right, possibly it comes down to affordability so what are the options?

Hotels

They offer a good service often arranging everything before you arrive. Complimentary transfers including ski lift drop off and pick up are available. Great food, bar service, spa and wellness centres, free Wi-Fi and many more facilities. All that’s lacking really is privacy when you stay in a hotel, often you can find good deals on child rates for families and they can usually arrange a nanny service if you want it.

Self-catering apartments

Here you can combine great value, quality accommodation and flexibility it also gives you the feeling of a homely atmosphere. If you are on a budget this is a good option for you and you can rent a self-catering ski apartment that sleeps from 2 to 16 people.

An advantage is it also gives you the flexibility to try different restaurants for your evening meals or if you prefer cooking at home. If you book an apartment it’s for sole occupancy so you don’t need to worry about sharing with someone you don’t know!

There are plenty of apartments that offer a range of amenities such as swimming pools; spa treatments are available with fitness rooms and Jacuzzis. Whatever your choice is you will find it in self-catering apartments from budget to luxurious, close to the centre or ski in/ski out it’s all available so look for the great choices on offer especially for families or smaller groups.

Ski Chalets

This is the ideal ski holiday accommodation for many, a catered ski chalet lets you go about your day starting with breakfast then enjoying the pistes and knowing that you are coming back to a clean tidy chalet, afternoon tea and a beautifully prepared evening meal and no dirty dishes! The whole chalet can be booked and it’s perfect for a large family or families or group of friends and at Christmas, it’s very popular as you can imagine. If you are a single person then you can book just one room and meet up with other skiers and boarders and take advantage of all a catered chalet offers. If you prefer to rent a chalet and cook yourself that is possible too as most ski chalets bookings can be tailor-made to suit you. There are different size chalets and some can sleep up to at least 14 and possibly more.

Ski Lodges

Now we are talking luxury, everything you could possibly want in a ski lodge and it’s all there, delicious food, hearty breakfasts to keep you going all day on the slopes, afternoon tea, pre-dinner aperitifs with canapés and sumptuous evening dinners. These lodges are in the perfect location for skiing and après ski all the mod cons you can think of and more including heated boot racks and ample ski storage and lift passes are all included as well as savings on ski lessons and ski hire. Facilities include wellness areas, hot tub, sauna or swimming pool, free Wi-Fi, Lodge bar and much more. If you want a touch of luxury this is perfect for you.

Excellent, clean and comfortable accommodation whatever you choose, look around what would best serve your holiday needs?
