Situated in the Grandes Rousses Massif, Alpe d' Huez is a bustling resort with something for everyone and an excellent range of visitor facilities.

"There is skiing and boarding for everybody at this French resort, close to both Grenoble and Lyons, although it is particularly good for beginners," she commented.

A resort which enjoys plenty of sunshine, Alpe d'Huez really is "in the big league", Ms Archer added.

Other top weekend destinations include Meribel, which is perfect for a cheap getaway, along with the nearby resort of Brides Les Bains.
