A 20-minute gondola lift, built for the Albertville Winter Olympics, provides access to MÃ©ribel and all of the Three Valleys.
We have talked about the new night service to selected resorts in the French Alps in previous articles on PlanetSKI.
âWe know that not everyone in a group wants to spend their entire vacation on the slopes, so our inclusion of this historic spa town is ideal for a family ski vacation spanning generations or, indeed, for any group including non-skiers. Â»Declared the CEO of Travelski Express, Guillaume de Marcillac.
âThere are also many skiers who will enjoy world class skiing in and around MÃ©ribel, but also some alternative activities when their knees feel the beat.
âFor them, our hotels in Brides-Les-Bains are obvious.
One of the attractions of Brides-Les-Bains is that the prices of accommodation are significantly lower than those of the flagship resorts of the Three Valleys.
Travelski Express offers a choice of accommodation in 3 and 4 star hotels, bed and breakfast or half board in Brides-Les-Bains.
Foodies will appreciate Hotel AmÃ©lie, in the city center and with a famous restaurant.
A stay here costs Â£ 935 per person for seven nights with half board, based on two people sharing a double room on January 8th.
Alternatives to Brides-Les-Bains include the 3-star Hotel Savoie downtown. This former convent offers 44 modern rooms, very close to the spa and the Olympic cable car. 7 nights in B&B for January 8th from Â£ 684 per person based on two people.
Or if you like 1920s glamor, the four star Golf hotel offers mountain views and modern, spacious rooms for Â£ 775 per person B&B, based on two people to share for 8 January.
Brides-Les-Bains offers a range of upscale boutiques as well as more traditional shops, numerous restaurants and a historic but resolutely modern spa resort, today one of the largest in France.
The Compagnie des Alpes operates the ski lifts at several resorts in France.
