IfYouSki is offering £280 off a week at The Hotel Grand Aigle in [R603R, Serre Chevalier] in the southern French Alps, from March 13.

The discount almost cuts the cost in half, bringing it down to £339. The price includes flights from Luton and half-board catering accommodaiton based on two sharing a double room.

"Serre Che" is made up of 13 villages (the hotel is located in one of the three main ones, Villeneuve) spread out for six kiloemtres along the Guisane Valley floor from Briancon. The north-facing larch-lined slopes above (most over 2000 metres ) are lift-linked all the way from the town.

The two-star Grand Aigle hotel is located slopeside with guaranteed snow and is a 10-minute gentle run across a field to the Frejus lifts. Alternatively the easy blue run right behind the hotel takes you down to the Pontillas cable car. An easy red gets you back to the hotel.

The hotel has a large public space below lobby level which contains a big bar with a small dance floor adjacent. There's also a games area with pool table, table football, and arcade games. In the evening it's a short stroll to the centre of Villeneuve, which is quite lively and has lots of shops and facilities.
