Brides-Les-Bains in Les3Vallees is added to the existing portfolio of Meribel, Les Arcs, Les Menuires, Val d’Isere, Tignes and La Plagne. All are now on offer as part of a package reaching the Alps by train.
Brides-Les-Bains is a year round thermal spa town that sits below Meribel and the Three Valleys ski area.
For skiers, a 20 minute gondola ride, built for the Albertville Winter Olympics, gives access to Meribel and the whole of the Three Valleys.
All Travelski Express packages include return direct Eurostar from London, transfers to accommodation, 7 day local area lift pass and French breakfast on arrival at Moutiers or Bourg St Maurice at the start of the holiday.

“ We know that not everyone in a group wants to spend their entire holiday on the slopes, so our inclusion of this historic spa town is ideal for multi generation family ski holidays or, in fact, any group that includes some non-skiers,” said the CEO of Travelski Express, Guillaume de Marcillac.
“There are also many skiers who will appreciate the world class skiing in and around Meribel, but also some alternative activities when their knees are feeling the pace.
“For them, our hotels in Brides-Les-Bains are an obvious choice.”
One of the attractions of Brides-Les-Bains is that accommodation prices are noticeably lower than the headline Three Valleys resorts.
Travelski Express offers a choice of three and four star hotel accommodation on either a B&B or half board basis in Brides-Les-Bains.
Food lovers will appreciate Hotel Amelie, in the centre of town and with an acclaimed restaurant.
A stay here costs £935 pp for seven nights half board, based on two sharing a double room in w/c 8th January.
Alternatives in Brides-Les-Bains include the 3 star Savoy hotel in the centre of town. This former convent offers 44 modern rooms, very close to the spa and Olympic cable car. 7 nights B&B for w/c 8th January costs from £684 per person based on two sharing.
Or if you fancy some 1920s style glamour, the four star Golf Hotel offers mountain views and spacious modern rooms for £775 per person B&B, based on two sharing for w/c 8thJanuary.
Brides-Les-Bains offers a range of high end boutiques plus more mainstream shops, numerous restaurants and an historic yet thoroughly modern thermal spa, now one of the biggest in France.
