France isn’t short of bucket list landmarks, destinations and experiences. You’ll find patisserie-lined arrondissements and world-famous monuments in the country’s historic capital, while vineyards and farms decorate the countryside. Visitors flock from around the world to visit the beaches and towns of the French Riviera, and winter brings skiers to the mountains before the snow melts to reveal pretty hiking trails in the spring.

From the slopes of Chamonix to time-stamped chateaux, you’ll have to visit more than once to see everything France has to offer. Casual wine lovers and sommeliers alike head to Bordeaux to sip from some of the country’s finest bottles. Nice and Marseille are well placed for exploring the glamorous resorts along the Côte d'Azur, and at the centre of it all sits Paris. The City of Light will seem familiar even to those who’ve never seen it before, whether you’re gazing at the Eiffel Tower, climbing the steps of the Sacre Coeur, or admiring the art in the Louvre. Uncover all of the country’s charms by booking flights to France with British Airways.

Skiing in France

France is home to one of the best ski areas in the world, great cuisine, some epic après ski, and high altitude snow-sure conditions.

A lot of the resorts were purpose-built in the 60s and 70s, giving them a high altitude and fast-moving modern lift systems. Add to this beautiful scenery and you have a perfect place to ski.

Alpe d’Huez

Also known as the ‘Island in the Sun’, Alpe d’Huez normally gets around 300 days of sun throughout the year, making it a perfect ski spot. The pistes range from easy greens to extreme blacks up to 3330 metres, but the real draw is La Sarenne – which is the longest black run in the world stretching 16km. You’ll have as much fun off the pistes too as Alpe d’Huez is one of the liveliest resorts in the Alps, so you’ll find plenty of opportunity to have a few drinks after your long day of skiing.

Flaine is part of the Grand Massif ski area, which also includes Les Carroz and Samoëns. The Flaine ski bowl itself is a brilliant area for beginners and intermediates, with some superb black routes for the fearless. It is great for freestyle skiers and snowboarders too, with one of the biggest snow parks in Europe, the Jam Park, stretching down the mountain for almost a mile. Flaine was purpose-built, so you won’t find too much in the way of entertainment, but there is such good skiing that you’ll be too tired to party.

Les Arcs

Built above Bourg St. Moritz in the 1960s, Les Arcs is now one of the most respected resorts in the world. The great thing about Les Arcs is that 70% of the pistes are above 2000 metres, making it a very snow-sure mountain, even late in the season. Also connected to the Paradiski area and La Plagne, the slopes are more suited to proficient skiers but there are some amazing routes for the more advanced. Try the Aiguille Rouge peak, which drops 2000m vertically and is 7km long. Les Arcs is not well known for nightlife, but you’ll find some fun après ski in Les Arcs 1800.

As part of the enormous Espace Killy ski area, you’ll have more than 300 kilometres of skiable terrain at your ski tips. Tignes has a smaller area surrounding it, but no less impressive – with two brilliant snow parks, wide sweeping pistes and some of the best off-piste in the French Alps.

Val Thorens

Europe’s highest and most snow sure resort, Val Thoren ticks all the boxes when looking for a high altitude ski holiday. As a purpose-built resort, it is not the most beautiful, but you will forgive that when you ski straight to the door of your accommodation. The well-groomed pistes cater for the more advanced skier at the top of the mountain, but beginners will find some exhilarating runs too. The off-piste here is also superb, with powder snow galore on the Peclet and Chavière glaciers. After skiing, head down to the town to find great bars – including the breathtaking views from the panoramic Bar 360.

Take a ski holiday to the gateway resort of the Tarentaise, Valmorel. There is a nursery area next to the village and gentle greens for beginners, as well as an extensive range of blue and red runs for intermediates across the 165km Grand Domaine ski area. For expert skiers, there is just a scattering of black runs and steeper reds – although there is some brilliant off-piste available for those advanced enough. When it’s time to take the ski boots off, take a turn at snowshoeing. The après here is leisurely, people usually enjoy a couple of afternoon beers and an evening drink in a bar.
