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

  • “My husband and 2 children had lessons this weekend to brush up for our holiday abroad. My kids loved the group lessons and made lots of progress. My husband and I took level 6 lessons and really benefited from the hints and tips on how to improve our skiing. Had lunch in the lodge too and it was quick (even in a busy period) and really tasty! Very reasonably priced too. Can't wait to hit the mountains now!”

  • “Top stuff Kids really enjoy very good experience and good people that work there. We will return for sure.”

  • “It was an enjoyable experience with my family, all staff were very helpful. It was my first time and I am sure we will visit you again”

  • “Clear, concise instructions and very supportive to all of the group the whole day. Great day out doing the 5 hour class. Lunch was yummy too! Very glad we had this beginner lesson before our holiday.”

  • “Joined the ski camp Holiday last week. It was well organized, my daughter learned a lot. Good experience. We will come back again.”
