Welcome to the Children's Village
The Children's Village proposes a fun approach to teaching in real conditions, with many instructors and organisers to welcome young skiers aged 3 to 16 years. The Village has built its reputation on its ability to adjust to the child's own pace, proposing indoor activities at the first signs of fatigue, or a sleep in the nursery, and hours that are compatible with parents' lessons.
So your children can have lunch or a snack at the Children's Village restaurant and, when they've finished skiing, join in with a range of activities suitable for their age group: puppet shows, reading, drawing, drama, films, dressing-up and make-up sessions, shows, etc.
