Chalet Alpenblume is an attractive family chalet and is a firm favourite with Esprit Ski families.
Its location is absolutely ideal, being close not only to our popular Chalet Verwall, which houses the resort's Snow Club, but within a two minutes' walk of the nearest piste and the main Festkogl gondola-lift, giving speedy access up into the heart of the Obergurgl ski area.
The main building houses the majority of the bedrooms and two suites, all of which were refurbished in 2013 in light woods and warm colours, and all with their own en suite facilities and flatscreen TVs. There is also a side wing, internally linked, including the owner's private apartment and three guest apartments, offering ideal spacious family accommodation. Each has a downstairs lounge, with the bedrooms above, reached by an internal staircase.
The wellness area has been expanded and now has a sauna, steam room and infra-red cabin plus a 'Kneippbad' for easing tired ski feet!
The entrance reception area and lounge/bar were also refurbished and offer a comfortable and convivial seating area for enjoying afternoon tea or pre-dinner apéritifs and canapés, as well as our new Xtra Chalet bar service. The dining-room (possibly a touch tight at breakfast if all families attend at once!) is delightfully Austrian, clad in Tyrolean knotty-pine panelling with traditional stube seating, and its charm and ambience lends itself to enjoyable dinners with good wine, tasty food and lively conversation.
Supervised lunches will be held in the Chalet Alpenblume for all children and our accompanying staff in Esprit Child Care.

We cannot praise the chalet, staff & resort enough! This was our first time in a catered chalet so we were not sure what to expect, but it was far exceeded our expectations. We will be back!
We have never stayed anywhere so well appointed or with such helpful staff. Without exception all the staff are happy, friendly, extremely helpful and go 'above & beyond'.
A fantastic week - the chalet was very good and the experience made even better by the Esprit team! Thank you.
