Peak Retreats Essentiels

Our aim is to offer the best possible range of 3* superior, 4*, 4* superior, 4*luxury and 5* accommodation throughout our programme; however, there are some resorts that we really like and our clients love, but which don’t currently have any 4* and above accommodation and are nonetheless still an excellent choice despite this... especially for the more budget conscious!  Also, many of our clients tell us they usually try to fit in a second ski trip in the season, and that for this they often have a lower budget than for their main trip.


With these criteria in mind, we have made a selection of our value accommodations for your consideration if your budget is stretched for whatever reason.

Our Essentiels range of accommodation is materially quite different from those in our main portfolio, offering a basic standard of comfort and smaller living and sleeping space; they are less well appointed and more sparsely furnished than our normal grade apartments and have, for example, a minimal range of kitchen utensils and cooking facilities.

Guests are normally required to make their own beds; bed linen, towels and end-of-stay cleaning are generally not included, but sometimes available as a payable extra. TV hire, with a limited range of non-UK channels, may be payable locally. Wifi is generally not included or even available at all in the apartments, but there may be a basic signal in the reception area.

Staffing at reception is at limited times. Ski lockers are normally available, although without heated boot racks. Bread/pastries delivery and other services are not usually offered.

Leisure areas, when available, offer generally a quite basic range of facilities.
