Esprit | Sir Matthew Pinsent and his family on an Esprit Ski holiday

Sir Matthew Pinsent - Four Times Olympic Gold Medallist, St Anton 2016

My wife Demetra and I had never tried the ski chalet concept before with the children but the staff were there to help and answer any questions that we may have had. The meals were fantastic and a great chance to relax at the end of the day knowing that the children were safely in bed! It was obvious that the staff were very used to catering and hosting families and they couldn’t have been friendlier with our three.

Our children Jonah, Lucas and Eve progressed so well in their Sprite Ski classes – they loved their instructors and whilst they were hesitant for the first morning (as we all were) they loved skiing in a group of children of a similar age and experience. Funnily enough they were much happier in their ski classes than they were taking tips from their Dad – funny that!

The skiing was wonderful – we had the perfect mixture of skiing in an adult group in the mornings and having the chance to ski hard or gently as the mood took us – then of course the obligatory lunch on the hill and then back in time to meet the children after their lesson. Most afternoons we would ski a little more with them, which was a wonderful chance to see how they’d improved.

By the end of the week we had reached the skiing heaven of all of us skiing the same slope and having a great time doing it – that first run together will stay with us for a while. In fact the children were disappointed to find that we couldn’t trade our summer holiday for a skiing one!
All in all we had a wonderful time and I’d heartily recommend skiing and in particular skiing with Esprit ski to anyone.

Overall a fantastic holiday and a great introduction to skiing for myself and the children. Esprit make what could be a stressful holiday into an easy and pleasurable experience. We will be recommending you and will be back!

Sampson Family - Chalet Hotel Des Deux Domaines, Belle Plagne, March 2016

What an amazing holiday, and its all down to the service of the Esprit staff - every member of staff I had dealings with was polite and professional. All answers were provided promptly and the staff were helpful beyond their means. Ski school, Snow Club and evening clubs were organised to perfection, so myself, as an adult could relax. All three of my children loved it! Will be back next year guys!

Leonard Family - Chalet Belette, Les Arcs 2000, February 2016

We have had the best time - Esprit manages to combine a fantastic adult holiday with a well organised fun filled child holiday. Our boys have progressed massively with their skiing, made lots of friends and had lots of fun. Thank you!

Burnett Family - Chalet Pepi Gabl, St Anton, January 2016

We had a wonderful time on our Esprit holiday. The chalet, food and staff were brilliant; such a high standard of service. The kids really enjoyed their skiing lessons and they are already looking forward to going back next year!

We of course always love receiving feedback, but this drawing by Tessa of the Parr Family, who stayed in the Chalet Hotel Ducs de Savoie in Val D’Isere in January 2015 is definitely a highlight!
