For your next holidays with family or friends, for a stay placed under the sign of entertainment, think about going to the mountains. Between breathtaking landscapes, evenings around a good raclette or descents in the powder snow, a successful holiday in perspective. Full or half board, what are the formulas for a successful stay according to you? We help you in this article.
Easy accommodation for a stay in the mountains: renting
For a successful ski holiday, the question of accommodation is an essential point to consider. The ski resorts offer different types of accommodation – chalet rentals, private residences, hotels … The choice depends on your needs. For those who are looking for an easy option at reasonable costs, direct rental seems to be the most interesting option. Online or telephone booking, rental is ideal for those who prefer the practical side of things. By making a reservation in advance, as soon as you arrive, you can drop off your luggage and go straight to the slopes. The advantage is that you don’t have to clean up during your stay. For those who want to reduce their catering budget, you can consider renting an apartment or a chalet to have a kitchen area. This option is ideal for group holidays. Accommodation in a holiday village also allows you to have spacious accommodation where you can cook and thus reduce your budget. Otherwise, for smaller budgets, there is also the possibility of renting from private individuals who rent out their apartments or chalets for holidays.
Holidays with half or full board, for a practical stay
For family holidays, you can also subscribe to the half board or full board formula. The half board formula is particularly suitable if you want to enjoy your stay in complete freedom, without having to respect meal times or if you plan outings with a packed lunch with your family. This formula also allows you to reserve more time for activities on the slopes or other activities. It’s also a great way to reduce your budget. As for the full board formula, it will allow you to make the most of your stay without having to worry about all the meals. It’s also the assurance of being in control of your budget even before you leave for the holidays. You will only have to manage the expenses related to the rental of ski equipment.
The all-inclusive formula, for a stay
Alternatively, for your mountain holidays, you can also subscribe to an all-inclusive holiday. The promise being to be able to fully enjoy your stay from the moment you arrive until the last day, without having to worry about anything. Depending on the establishment, the plane ticket and all transfers are usually included in the price. Once on site, in addition to accommodation and meals as well as drinks, you will be able to benefit from all the services and organised entertainment. However, it is advisable to enquire about the drinks included in the package – some alcoholic drinks are not included. You will also be able to participate free of charge in the various sports activities and excursions organised throughout your stay. This formula is quite expensive and is not suitable for small budgets, although it is quite practical. As a precaution, before subscribing to an all-inclusive package, always take the time to see in detail all the services included in the package, so that you don’t have to pay extra once you arrive.
