The best holidays are ski holidays! That fresh mountain air, the exhilaration of speed, the satisfaction of sharing a passion with your family. 

We recognise that every family has its own requirements, which is why we have plenty of suggestions in our collection of accommodation. We can arrange a group transfer from the airport directly to your accommodation. Even with self catering options, it’s possible to stop off at the supermarket on the way to the resort.

A combination of self catering and meals out can be a great way of lightening the load, coupled with feeding the family at a time that suits you. Just remember that whilst in a big group, you might want to make a reservation for a couple of tables, giving the restaurant as much notice as possible, and they might also suggest a fixed menu. We will provide you with a list of restaurants to suit all budgets once your booking is confirmed with us.

So what can you expect in terms of facilities? Apartments are typical in Italy as opposed to chalets. They usually consist of a combination of bedrooms and sofa beds, as well as an open plan style kitchen living area. Typically, the kitchen will be provided with a hob and microwave, some with ovens, and the usual kitchen equipment. Furthermore, the bathrooms tend to be of good quality and contemporary in style. You still have the sense of being in a cosy environment, as apartments usually have wooden floors and or ceilings and are kept beautifully warm. 

Apartments are ideal for a mixed group of people, giving families their own space but also being a stone’s throw away from each other, allowing meals to be shared together if desired or if children want to hang out together after a busy day on the mountain.

Zuba has a selection of self catering options in each of the resorts that we cover. Book early for the busy periods, as they get snapped up quickly. These are predominantly over the Christmas holidays and February half term.

If you want to find out more, fill out an enquiry form on our website. It really helps us to know how many families are going and how many apartments and bedrooms you require. Then you can leave it up to us to find the best solution for your group.
