National Geographic Traveller (UK), Alpe d’Huez and Esprit Sun have teamed up to offer a fun-packed French escape to this stunning region for a lucky family of four.
Living up to its nickname, ‘the island in the sunshine’, Alpe d’Huez enjoys hot summers and spectacular scenery and was the setting for a gripping summit finish on last year’s Tour de France. It’s the perfect summer destination for those looking to relax or, alternatively, get an adrenalin fix: Alpe d’Huez is an exhilarating playground — cycling, walking, climbing, swimming and horse-riding are just a few of the activities available to keep a family busy during the summer months.
Endless footpaths and mountain bike trails are just waiting to be explored and the town — a former mining hub from as early as the 14th century — bustles with cafes, bars, shops, restaurants and French boutiques.
Your base will be the Chalet Hotel Mariandre, which is ideally suited to families, being located close to the resort’s main centre of shops, restaurants and cafes, and only a short walk away from the Palais du Sport with its outdoor and indoor swimming pools. Lift passes will be provided in order to reach the mountain heights.
For further information, please visit EspritSun.com or call the reservations team on T: 01483 791 919.
The winner, guest and two children (2-11 years) will receive flights/transfers and half-board at Chalet Hotel Mariandre, with five days’ morning and evening child care for 3-10s, plus a day trip to Grenoble.
