Les Deux Alpes Accommodation
With a mix of catered and self catered accommodation Les Deux Alpes is a great resort for skiing on a budget. All accommodation is either a short walk or bus ride from the ski lifts and the town is serviced well by the local buses.
The accommodation standard is not of the same high standard as resorts such as Meribel or Val d'Isere however the skiing more than makes up for this.
The selection of cheaper accommodation is great for families and large groups looking for an inexpensive skiing holiday.
