Winter time in France is an experience to enjoy, with wine, skiing, and amazing mountain chalet views what more could anyone ask for when spending the winter months with family? Consider a stay on one of the catered ski chalets for some winter time family fun. Just remember to bring your warm clothes and a cozy snuggle buddy for those chilly nights and brisk mornings.
Chalet Le Char
This 52-acre park has more than enough outdoor play area for your children to exhaust themselves with snowball fights, sledding, and snowman building competitions; and then when they come in the fun continues in the loft playroom. They will keep themselves entertained for hours allowing the adults to have some much needed relaxation time of their own. Then when it is time for dinning and settling in for the night, you will be surrounded by elegance in the mansion estate.
Le Chateau de St Louis Keep
Although the 14th century castle was once a dungeon that was used to house the King of France, Jean le Bon, when the “Black Prince” had him imprisoned, you would never know that this was once used to imprison royalty. The ten bedroom castle has its own lake and is surrounded by a moat, making it the ideal location for secluded family time or a major family event such as a winter wedding.
Demeure de Marbougett
Set in the center of the Gers in Aquitaine regions in the South of France, this chateau offers exquisite services, as well as an impressive wine cellar. The beautiful scenery and the lavish décor make the Demeure de Marbougett the perfect winter holiday retreat for celebrating the Christmas holidays away from the hustle and bustle of home.
For the family who enjoys kicking up some power during the day, and then kicking up their heels after a day on the slopes, Chalet Cache is your destination spot. Its ideal location set only 200m away from Chamonix high street, offers visitors an abundance of nightly activities in order to dance, drink, and get a little wild.
If your family’s idea of wonderful winter entertainment is more about experiencing delicious food and wine than speeding down the side of a mountain then the Chateau Lauzel is the place for you. This once medieval castle has been converted into a chateau where visitors can stay in order to explore the many world class restaurants and wine tasting experiences that are only minutes away.
Winters in France are the perfect time to get the family together and take a much needed holiday to one of the centuries old castles, chalets, or chateaus in order to spend quality family time exploring history, getting much needed exercise on one of the many downhill ski slopes, or indulging in some of the world’s finest wine and cuisines. Whatever your family’s preferences are, you are sure to find something to make everyone happy this winter at one of France’s historic winter venues.
