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

  • “Love it here. Great slope and the staff are really friendly. Also love the Alpine bar and viewing area. So pleased to have it back.”

  • “Incredible welcome and help from the staff! First trip back since before lockdown and it was well worthwhile. Lovely welcome and talk through the new set up. Then my son had an issue with his own kit and the guys couldn’t have been more helpful - very kind and very knowledgeable. The snow as good as ever and the cafe a good finish to a great time. Thank you all!”

  • “The Hemel ski centre has a great atmosphere, the instructors are friendly and helpful, it’s just an all round really well run place”

  • “Had a great time at the snow centre, went once before lockdown and was good to be back. I had a one on one lesson which was good but went too quickly. I’ll try to book two lessons on the same day so I can keep up with progress. It was all well managed and seemed to have good Covid measures in place.”
