Still thinking about where to go for your February half term? Why not enjoy the best of both worlds and combine a ski holiday and a Villa.
Travelling to the French Riviera makes it possible. The closest ski resorts in the Southern French Alps are only about 1 hour drive from the coast as well as the international airport of Nice. This makes it ideal for a day trip to the mountains, while spending the rest of the week at your beautiful holiday Villa by the sea side.

The winter weather in Southern France is very pleasant and although you cannot exactly call it ‘hot’, the weather will be a good deal warmer than temperatures back in Britain.

Fly to Nice from the UK – from here most of our Villas are only a 30minute drive away, especially since there is less traffic than in the summer months.

On your first day get familiarised with the Villa and its facilities. Opt for a Villa with pool heating for your first outdoor swim of the year. Ideal for the February holiday, Villa Mataha, Chateau Nissa and Villa Jade offer an outdoor Jacuzzi. Villa Soraya even comes along with heated indoor pool, sauna and hammock.

After a day of relaxation, head up to the Ski resorts. At only one hour and a half of Nice, Isola 2000, summit of the Southern Alps, is probably the best choice for your mountain day. Located at 2000m of altitude at the border line with Italy, Isola 2000 offers oxygen in an exceptional environment. Next to the most popular activity of downhill-skiing, the resort also offers cross country skiing, ski mountaineering or snow shoeing, with entertainment for kids and adults alike.

Why not rent a snowmobile for a picturesque ride through the snowy landscape, followed by a typical French mountain lunch with Racelette and Vin Chaud? Other popular ski resorts close to the Riviera are Auron at 1600m close to the Mercantour National Park, and Valberg offering 90km of Alpine skiing pistes with fun zones and a Snow Park.

After a full day of fun and activity, you will be happy to get back to your Villa. Don’t forget to book your private chef for the evening! Fill your days discovering the French Riviera’s villages and towns which boast great restaurants and local markets. Don’t miss out on shopping the famous Croisette in Cannes. Enjoy the exclusivity of the French Riviera in low season.
