Erna Low, the Ski Specialist to the French Alps, launches the winter season with 10 New Properties.

For the first time, Erna Low adds the picturesque resort of Arêches-Beaufort. Arêches-Beaufort is a  great resort for families as it has a much shorter drive time from Calais as well as being a good value alternative to more well-known resorts. It is close to Albertville in the Beaufortain valley and will be particularly attractive to lovers of the famous Beaufort cheese. Whilst the resort is little-known on the UK market, the advantage is that prices are very competitive throughout the season.

A seven night stay in the New 4* La Cle des Cimes Residence with its indoor pool and ô Pure spa will cost just £747 for the week beginning 05 January 2019 for a 1 bedroom apartment for 4 person including a return Flexiplus crossing with Eurotunnel for 1 car. That equates to £187 per person including travel.

Joanna Yellowlees-Bound, CEO of Erna Low comments, “Over the last few seasons we have realised that we are selling more self-drive ski holidays to the French Alps than any other type of ski holiday, so moving forward this is what we have decided to focus on – ski holidays to France. With all our years of experience and knowledge, we endeavour to find the best ski holidays for our clients”.

Over 30 years ago, in Erna Low’s Guide to Family Skiing of 1973, founder Erna Low herself wrote; “Renting a furnished apartment is a very popular and comparatively inexpensive way for a family to enjoy a ski holiday. Apartments can be rented in all the modern French ski stations – La Plagne, Les Arcs, Flaine and many others.”

Erna Low added, “Taking your own car has advantages if at least four people travel together, take their own food for the journey and motor through the night. Your car and passenger passage by boat (Sealink or Townsend Thorensen) should be booked well in advance direct with the shipping company. Remember to drive on the RIGHT and take pills for car sickness.”

Today Erna Low continues to promote travelling by car to the Alps and the company enjoys a special partnership with Eurotunnel. The result is that all clients travel with Flexiplus (equivalent to travelling Club or First Class on a flight). Clients enjoy access to the new Flexiplus lounges in Folkestone and Calais and benefit from priority boarding.
