Ski France

Ski France / Summer France is a highly-regarded specialist in the management of hotel-restaurants and holiday rentals. What we don’t know about holidaying in France is not worth knowing!

32 years of experience has put us in a privileged position. Originally operating under the name of Madame Vacances, our UK based office has been renamed, but our values and service keep the same high standards. We offer a wide range of holiday rentals and hotels across many regions of France. We have built strong and lasting relationships with local providers, and are able to anticipate what is important to our clientele to deliver an unforgettable holiday experience, as well as exceptional and personalised customer service.

At the heart of our raison d’être is a deep desire to deliver real customer satisfaction. This has come to define what Ski France / Summer France is all about.


Since 1991, Purple Ski has offered what we believe to be the some of the finest luxury chalet holidays in the French Alps, if not Europe. Our aim is to ensure our guests have the perfect skiing holiday both on and off the slopes.

Keeping our hand-picked portfolio of chalets intentionally small and special has allowed us to focus on delivering exceptional service and cuisine in exceptional chalets. Our management team have all worked for Purple Ski for many years, allowing us to build strong relationships with our regular clients.

Over the years we have delighted more than 10,000 clients. Since our beginning in Méribel, we have welcomed families, groups of friends and high profile corporate groups alike. We now offer beautiful well-appointed chalets in Méribel and Val d’Isère. Our sister company, Purple Summer, supported by the same core team, now offers a small selection of luxury catered villas in Mallorca and the Côte d’Azur.

Our chalet and villa teams are handpicked service professionals who will deliver exceptional service before and during your stay. They are, without doubt, our major asset and the principal reason why holidaying with Purple Ski is so unique. We believe that by looking after and empowering them, they in turn will really look after you and make your ski holiday with us truly memorable.

In a nutshell, it’s for the chalets that guests first come to stay with Purple Ski, but it’s for the service that they return year after year.

Now, we are delighted to be able to offer the same service and cuisine in some of the finest luxury villas across the Côte d’Azur and Mallorca.

Our aim is to ensure our guests have the most spectacular holiday, whether they be a family looking for a fun escape around the pool, a group of friends going away for a relaxing retreat, or anything in between.

What makes us special is the emphasis we have always placed on our staff – industry professionals who are all passionate about delivering the very best service possible. Undoubtedly our greatest asset, we believe in the importance of rewarding and looking after them, so in turn they really look after you.
