Your little ones will have heaps of fun in the safe hands of our Crystal Childcare professionals, who are all DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) and reference checked, or equivalent. We look after kids aged 6 months – 4 years old in our Pepi Penguin Nursery, and aged 3 or 4 – 8 years in our Beanie Bear Club.
To find the right holiday for you, take a look at our ‘best for families’ resorts. They’ve all got:
Finding the perfect place for you and your family to stay adds an extra special layer to the holiday. You can ski in and out of some places, while others are so close to the slopes, there’s very little walking needed. Keep your eyes peeled for family-friendly facilities like swimming pools, games rooms, interconnecting rooms, kids' evening meals and baby equipment.
The real winter warmers. If you like the idea of a comfy lounge area with a fireplace and a friendly host, a chalet holiday might be your thing. Your chalet host will do the cooking and cleaning, while you and your family kick back in a cosy and relaxing atmosphere, so you feel like you never even left home. You can book an entire chalet or share with others.
Put your feet up in a locally run hotel for a real flavour of the culture in resort. You can enjoy authentic experiences and conveniently get to things you might need – like restaurants and leisure facilities. Some hotels are even ski-to-door, while others offer Crystal Childcare.
You’ll get your own space, and a kitchen or kitchenette, so you can enjoy more independence with your meals and how you spend your evenings in. Apartments come in all standards of comfort – from small studios to multi-bedroom apartments sleeping up to 10.
Kitting out your kids for skiing needn’t cost the earth. Your skis, poles and helmets can be rented in resort, but you’ll need to get the right outer clothing sorted before you go. If it’s your first time, consider borrowing kit from a friend or asking around for any hand-me-downs before investing in your own gear.
In most resorts, you can buy nappies, jars of food and formula milk from supermarkets or chemists. But if your child prefers specific brands or if you want organic baby food and snacks, it's worth bringing those with you.
To make sure things run smoothly while you're on holiday, we can sort out some extra bits for you. Some of these need to be booked before you arrive in resort so they're ready and waiting for you.
Also, don't forget infants (under 2 years) have a luggage allowance of 10kg on all TUI flights.
Our website's prices and flight, accommodation and room availability are updated every morning. To calculate average price per person, applicable discounts are subtracted from your total cost, which is then divided by the number of adults and children (excluding infants). A full price breakdown can be viewed on the payment page.
In some circumstances, prices and availability may update during the day so you may find price/availability differences later in the booking process.
