3/5  Avoriaz, Haute-Savoie, France

Avoriaz has the highest, snow-sure slopes in the entire, enormous Portes du Soleil ski area, so it’s a natural choice for serious skiers. But it’s also ski-in-ski-out, and the only resort in the French Alps to have a Village des Enfants right at its heart, which makes it perfect for families too.

Approved by the ministry for ‘Jeunesse et Sport’, the Village ski-school has over 100 multi-lingual instructors and offers lessons from age three onwards. The atmosphere is light and fun, there’s a kindergarten for young non-skiers, a children’s restaurant, and parents can take lessons alongside their kids if they want.
