About Neilson

We can’t believe that we took our first guests on holiday back in 1978!

From small beginnings with just a handful of guests, we now send over 80,000 of you away every year to relax as hard as you like on the beaches and snowy slopes of Europe.

Neilson was born from a passion for lifestyle sports and over the last 40 years, that passion has driven us to create an exciting range of summer and winter holidays for people who find the best way to relax is to switch off by doing something.

Everyone looks for unforgettable experiences these days, and that’s exactly what you’ll get on a Neilson holiday. You’ll have the freedom to try something from our huge range of inclusive activities in the mountains or by the coast, so it’ll be easy to do what you love or discover a whole new sport to fall in love with, all with expert coaching, if you want it that is.

All of our beachclubs and Mountain Collection hotels and catered chalets are run by us, exclusively for you. Whether you switch off by being active or prefer to take it easy with a glass of wine and a good book for company, our experienced team will be there for all of your holiday needs. Throw into the mix our outstanding childcare and superb hospitality and you’ll find it’s easier than ever to ‘relax as hard as you like’.

We’d love you to experience a Neilson holiday and look forward to welcoming you on the beach or in the mountains soon.

The word from the slopes

  • “Easy access from M1. Plenty of parking, simple registration, and quick service to collect skis, boots etc. Both lifts serving the main slopes worked faultlessly and although the session was quite busy I felt the slopes were quite free of other skiers & classes. I particularly liked the snow conditions and at the end enjoyed the amazing cafè overlooking the slopes. Reasonably priced menu. All told an excellent start to our skiing this year.”

  • “Very friendly staff. Good, clean facilities and very good prices on lessons & lift passes.”

  • “Very helpful staff would recommend to anyone trying to learn snow sports very down to earth people.”

  • “Great place, nothing negative to add. You can rent all of the equipment down to socks. Any kind of lessons available. Parking, gear store, cafe on site”

  • “Great lessons with experienced instructors who put kids and parents at their ease. The lessons were full as it was half term, but each child still didn’t have to wait too long between turns on the slope. It was easy to get and return equipment and the food in the restaurant was great and came promptly.”
