Isère Tourism

Family-friendly ski resorts

Discover our five resorts where skiing with your family is fun. Awarded “Famille Plus” status, these resorts take charge of childcare with ski schools and kids clubs so you can ski. And as a whole family, enjoy sports from swimming, tobogganing or ice skating. Head out on a showshoe adventure, learn more about chamois or take a virtual flight over the mountains. We have something for everyone!

It's not just about ski equipment, but also teddy bears, baby bottles and toys!

When your in-resort babysitter is looking after your kids, you can go skiing. And off the piste, discover activities to delight the whole family.

In Isère, the heart of the French Alps, there are no fewer than five “Famille Plus mountain resorts: Les 2 Alpes, Alpe d’Huez and Vaujany in Oisans; Chamrousse in the Belledonne ; and Villard-de-Lans/Corrençon in Vercors.


Famille plus: a warm personal welcome!

Wherever you go, you’ll enjoy the best possible service: at your accommodation, in restaurants and other tourist establishments.

Locals will do everything to make your stay as easy and pleasant as possible. Whatever the size of your family, you can find the right chalet or hotel, along with an impressive choice of childcare facilities and clubs to ensure your children are well looked after and have a great time – all while you take advantage of the fresh powder!
