February half-term is one of the most popular times for a family ski holiday, days are longer than January and the snow conditions are usually fantastic. With school holidays in the UK and France, many families choose to head to the slopes, meaning accommodation tends to get booked up quickly.
If you are planning a February half-term ski holiday then the one thing you should do is book in advance.
But where to stay? If you’re travelling as a family or with a large group, you’ll find ski chalets work really well, giving everyone more space to relax and enjoy the break.
They offer far more flexibility than a ski hotel, but when choosing your chalet look at the layout to ensure it will suit your requirements. Think about how the bedrooms will work for you and look at the living space: how many living areas does it have, and is there a media room or a kids play room, for example.
Cooking for yourself can also be much more flexible than a catered chalet - there's no need for set meal times, and you can always eat out or get a takeaway fi you don't feel like cooking.
Child-friendly chalets, such as our Cool for Kids and Cool for Kids Extra properties, are hugely popular and you will find they’re selling out fast, particularly for the Feb half-term. With facilities such as games, books, DVDs and even PlayStations, they help ensure everyone has a fantastic holiday and many guests choose to return year after year.
Half-term is also a great time to book ahead for next year, whether you're looking for a family-friendly ski holiday or a festive week away with friends at New Years. Take a look at our range of New Years ski chalets in France before they're all booked up for peak dates!
In Your Ski Resort
Whichever ski resort you choose for half term — the buzz of resorts such as La Clusaz or Morzine, the stunning beauty of Manigod, the charm of Le Grand Bornand, or the idyllic Les Gets or Cordon — you’ll love the quality and flexibility of an OVO Network chalet.
Half-term holidays in a ski resort mean great ski conditions, but don’t forget other winter activities such as ski de fond, dog sledding, ice skating and the paret — the traditional sledge used in Manigod. You can also enjoy the famed French cuisine. Try Alpine specialities such as raclette and tartiflette — or organise a chef to come and cook for you in your chalet.
