Chalet La Giettaz offers fantastic family-friendly accommodation for ski holidays with children. What's more, the ski area is quiet and and easy to navigate, providing a safe and fun environment for your children to learn the basics of skiing, or refine their technique with friendly, helpful, English-speaking instructors.
"The skiing is great, both for the more experienced and for the younger ones, and it's all really accessible for the Mum's who don't ski but want to watch the little ones in ski school." Tripadvisor review of Chalet La Giettaz, April 2012
The local ESF ski school at Le Plan runs children's lessons daily throughout the season. Prices are very good value in comparison to some of the larger French resorts, and the quiet local pistes mean your kids will learn the ropes very quickly. Our ESF instructors are locals and our friends and they really care about kids. Lessons can be booked for kids of age 3 upwards. Reservations in advance are recommended, particularly if you require an English-speaking instructor.
The crèche at Le Plan operates throughout the ski season. The friendly staff have had rave reviews from all our guests who have used them and repeat bookings, so you can be sure that your kids will be happy and well looked-after while you are skiing. The crèche is right beside the ski lift, and the English-speaking staff will even collect your kids from their ski lessons. When not skiing, kids are taken to play in the snow garden (age 1 upwards) and sledging. If it's snowing heavily, the kids paint pictures, bake cakes and play with toys indoors. Both the crèche and ski school staff understand that we all have our off days and that sometimes we need to get indoors and have a hot chocolate and a bit of pampering - that's why our youngest guests love them!
