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

  • “Having never been skiing before, I booked in for the full-day introductory course. The instructor Richard was extremely patient and allowed me to get to grips with the basics at my own pace. The Snow Centre is a very impressive facility, with the learning slope separate from the main slope so you don't feel under pressure if you are a beginner. Overall I really enjoyed it and would definitely go back.”

  • “Had a 2 hour adult woman’s group with Alan who is amazing, very patient And explains things in such a simple way you can progress with ease he paid attention to everyone in the class which was lovely ...!!”

  • “Thank you Julie for your kind hearted gesture this morning of buying a coffee for all NHS workers - it was definitely what I needed ready to face a busy shift! The coffee was lovely - as were you, and I will definitely pop in more often, as it is such a convenient place for a quick pick me up! Thank you!!”

  • “Huge thanks to Craig,or Carl, sorry can't remember which who was amazing loading sit skis yesterday. Also Beeman with his ever helpful how are you, can I help greetings. Snow really good as well.”
