Catered chalet specialist Ski Famille has some great savings for families keen to take advantage of the fantastic snow conditions in the French Alps this winter.

Family holidays with Ski Famille are offered in the picturesque French resort of Les Gets. Packages include five days of child care, half-board catering, and either Channel crossings or Geneva airport transfers.

Families travelling with babies and seeking warmer weather should look to book the week of 21 March. Ski Famille has 15 percent reductions on all but two of their chalets during this week. Prices start from £455 per adult and £415 per child.

Les Gets is a picturesque farming village, which has grown into one of the world's top resorts.

How many other resorts can offer a museum of mechanic music and animated mannequins or free excursions to the local cheese farm? The "Maison des Gets" encompasses the Lift Society, the Events Society, the Tourist Office, the nursery, town hall, and lift ticket sales desk, so clients can easily and conveniently find all the information they need in one place.

The resort is close to Morzine, six kilometres (four miles) away by road and also the main lift-linked destination over the Pleney Mountain. Both are on the huge Portes du Soleil circuit and it's possible to strike out in most directions on skis with a regional pass, or just stay local with a Les Gets-Morzine only ticket.

Les Gets' long history as a winter sports resort is proven by its status in being the location of the first Ecole du Ski Français which opened here in 1940. There's been heavy investment in recent years in a series of state-of- the-art lifts.
