Stay in in 7 different resorts!
See our great 2020 SKI MENU FOR CHAMPAGNY

Following a wonderful ski season at the delightful Hotel l'Ancolie in Champagny en Vanoise during the winter of 2019, when we once again received such a warm and friendly welcome, we have decided to hold all of our holidays there again in the 2020 ski season. For more information about this hotel and resort, click on the highlighted link above.


We have a short video taken in January 2017 by one of our guests, which is now available for you to see exactly why we have chosen this lovely ski area as our Alpine Bridge home in the Alps.

General Information for Ski Holidays in 2020

Costs above are an approximation, and based on an exchange rate of €1.22 to the £1 (This is the average rate over the past 5 years, but the hotel tariffs will change as the rate fluctuates). These prices include half board in twin or double rooms with en suite bathrooms, wine each evening with dinner, a welcome cocktail party, a farewell drink, prize giving and a full Bridge programme. Also, our usual team will be on hand to help you enjoy both your ski-ing and après ski activities, pointing out the best pistes, restaurants and bars for you to enjoy. Mike Graham our Bridge expert plans to be with us for all three the weeks. Bridge Partners are guaranteed.

There is a wide choice of flights to the Alps available at very competitive prices which you can book yourself. However, we have reserved several Premier and Standard Class seats for each Saturday on the Eurostar Express. The train departs from London St. Pancras International at 9.45am, and following a stop to pick up passengers in Kent is scheduled to arrive in Moutiers at 18.20 (local time). Transfers to the hotel will be provided in taxis or a private coach with a transfer time of about 20 minutes. The train is very comfortable and there will be opportunities to enjoy a few hands of Bridge during the journey, as well as complimentary meals and drinks in Premier Class. The return trip has broadly similar timings, arriving back in London at around 16.15. The cost of the Premier class return train journey is around £260 per person for the January departures, and about £300 for the March weeks. Standard Class fares are between £90 and £140 less depending on the departure date. These fares are subject to availability. Transfer costs to the hotel will be £15.00 per person each way. There is also the freedom of driving to the resorts via the channel tunnel or ferry service and this could be the preferred choice for those happy to take their time getting there.

We are not arranging the complete package for you, as this would contravene European Travel Regulations. However by using a quality Hotel that we know well, and where there is a reliable management structure, we feel that we are giving you the confidence that you will get good value for money. In addition you have the added flexibility of arranging your own travel should you so wish or joining others in our group on the train - their holiday starts in London!

Please let us have booking forms back as soon as you are able to confirm your requirements as two of the weeks were sold out last year and we cannot guarantee Hotel availability after 1st November. Seats on the Eurostar Express are also limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis!

We strongly recommend that you arrange a suitable travel insurance policy for your protection while travelling abroad.

We are offering our guests the chance to take an outstanding cruise operated by the Fred Olsen cruise line...noted for its friendly staff, fine food and comfortable accommodation.

We depart on April 29th on the Balmoral from the port of Newcastle.

This is a very lovely voyage of 10 days and nights which explores the cultural highlights and exquisite waterways of Sweden.

First we will be visiting the classical city of Malmö followed by a fascinating day in the old Hanseatic fortified city of Visby on Gotland. After this there will be the delightful and scenic entrance to the capital city of Stockholm for a two day stay before heading to the more laid back city of Gothenburg where we stay all day until late at night.

We return home via a network of beautiful Swedish Fjords with their tapestries of charming villages and sprawling hills which are best seen from the sea.

Look at the Scenic Sweden poster for full details

The ship has a lovely card room featuring windows with Ocean views and access to the promenade deck for any sightseeing while we enjoy our regular sessions of friendly duplicate Bridge.

The very generous free drinks package is available for bookings received by October 31st 2018.

Please contact the Fred Olsen Groups department, as explained on the cruise information poster, to reserve your holiday

When you have chosen your cabin there will be an additional £50 supplement for our Special Alpine Bridge package which includes our administration costs, a special cocktail party, prizes at the Bridge table and additional extras. This amount should be paid directly to us.  For more information, please leave a message on our EMail Form
