La Rosière’s motto, ‘The Resort where Children are Royalty’, gives you some idea of how family-friendly this snow- sure (1,850m) resort is – and ski-to-the-door Chalet Begonia is in the centre. Occupying the second floor of a building where Esprit operates four chalet-apartments, Chalet Begonia has open-plan dining and lounge areas, a large stone fireplace, and a balcony with fab views over the Tarentaise Valley. There are three family suites, each for four, with two sleeping areas, plus a shared kids’ snug and sauna for parents. Esprit nannies offer daycare from 17 weeks old and a chaperone service to ski school (at extra charge), plus a free baby-listening/child patrol service from 7.30-11pm.
Price: Chalet Begonia costs £2,999 this New Year for a family of four (nine nights)
