For winter sports enthusiasts who also want to get back to nature, Les Aillons-Margériaz in France's Savoie department is offering a Ski Nature Weekend package deal. For two, three, or even seven days, skiers can take advantage of the offer to take a break from everyday life and get a change of air.

The stay is comprised of housing in listed accommodation and alpine and cross-country ski passes for the duration of the stay for the Margériaz and Aillon-Station ski areas.

At the resort, it is possible to hire ski equipment and sign up for emergency piste evacuation insurance. The Capucine crèche can watch over children aged nine months to six years while the parents enjoy a day or two of quiet time. These options are not included in the price of the package.

The deal costs €48 per person for a two-day stay, €65 per person for a three-day stay, and €109 for a seven-day stay. For the week-long stay, clients must arrive Saturday afternoon and depart the following Saturday morning. These prices are based on maximum occupancy of four people but children born after May 1, 2003 can stay for free. For smaller groups, contact the tourism office.

These offers are valid from Jan. 2 to Feb. 6 and March 6 to April 5, 2010.
