It may only be September but the ski industry is already gearing up for another season on the slopes, which means plenty of earlybird discounts. One of our favourites is this self-catering week in the world famous resort of Val d'Isere for £488 per apartment. This deal from Pierre & Vacances saves 20% on regular prices.
Accommodation is at the 4-star Residence Les Chalets de Solaise apartments that sleep between two and four people. The slopeside apartments are comprised of a living area with a double folding bed, a single sofa bed and a pull out bed. There is also a kitchenette, bathroom and either a balcony or terrace. Guests can make use of the apartment's heated outdoor swimming pool.
Valid for 7-night stays on 5, 12, 19 January and 23 March.
Val d'Isere is one of Europe's top ski resorts and has a huge combined ski area with the neighbouring resort of Tignes. The Where to Ski and Snowboard Guide online says that "For a combination of seriously impressive skiing and captivating village ambience, there aren’t many places we’d rather go."
Flights are not included with this offer but we found flights to Geneva in January for £58 return. Geneva airport is approximately three hours from Val d'Isere by road.
