Winter activity holidays

Nordic Skiing at le Boreon

In a nutshell

  • Much more to the white stuff than downhill
  • Max flexibility - length of stay, activities
  • Easy to get to Nice

What's it all about?

Winter activity holiday in France for families and friends....

Grab a hire car, self cater and decide what you want to do when you get here!!!

Our rental accommodation comprises two gites which may be hired together. The accommodation is clean, cosy and good value for money.

Nice is not a ski destination so flights usually remain reasonable. There’s plenty to do in and around the Vésubie valley, but strong skiers might wish to head off to Auron or Isola 2000 for some more advanced skiing.

Occasional meals can be provided on request.
