A TRAVEL agency which takes skiers beyond the big resorts and into the unspoilt villages of the French Alps has won an award for its work.
Peak Retreats, based in Portsmouth, has won the title of Best Ski Company for the third year in a row in the Guardian, Observer and guardian.co.uk Travel Awards.
Company founder Xavier Schouller said: ‘It’s a huge honour and a real surprise to win this accolade for three successive years and perhaps even more rewarding to know that our efforts have been recognised, especially considering how competitive the ski market has become. We are incredibly proud.’
The company is celebrating its 10th anniversary next year.
‘During the past decade it has helped thousands of skiers discover the real France and those resorts generally ignored by the big commercial operators.
Its new destination, Briançon, is the highest town in Europe.
Mr Schouller added: ‘With a dedicated team we make it our priority to ensure our clients get the personal service they deserve.’
