Winter is near and who wouldn’t be tempted by a trip to the mountains to enjoy the snow? This common interest of families, friends or colleagues to spend a ski vacation motivates the managers of tourist homes. The latter are developing their activities more and more. In this case, the services they provide are constantly being improved in order to obtain the satisfaction of their customers.
Tourism residences: brief description
A tourist residence is a grouping of several apartments dedicated to the rent. Its difference from a hotel is that it is less expensive. Intimacy and home can be its watchwords. Most of them are operational during the winter period when clients stay for a while to enjoy the snow. Hotels are then less convenient. For the time being, there are many ski resorts that offer prestigious services in order to provide an unforgettable stay to the holidaymakers. Also, the competition reigns and the quality of the services requiring a continuous improvement is then paramount. Apart from the practice of skiing, multiple advantages are also available through these diversified services.
The traditional services found in the tourist residences
The apartments are furnished. They are equipped with television and all the furniture necessary for daily life. Linen rental, cleaning and laundry services are also available. Some areas also offer a children’s corner, a daycare center, relaxation and wellness areas. Parking and security are included in the price. Since snow is only available in winter, this is a cold-weather vacation. In order not to disappoint their guests, the ski resorts provide equipment and services adapted to such circumstances. They are equipped with heated swimming pools, located indoors and not outdoors. Each accommodation has a fireplace with logs for fire and/or heating devices.
Features of the services for ski vacations
Access to winter sports and ski lifts requires special precautions. For those who are not prepared, the residence must have a store for the purchase or rental of materials necessary for skiing: boots, suits, hats or gloves and skis. Generally, ski trainers should be present to assist those who need it. The slopes must be studied for safety. For this purpose, the ski resorts put up the necessary signs and signals. The best ski resorts are those at the foot of the mountains. For mountain tours or long trips, professional guides are at the service of skiers to orient them and prevent them from getting lost. These resorts are equipped with rescue equipment in case of accidents during the practice.
