Chalet Verwall (pronounced 'Fair-val') makes an excellent choice for your family ski holiday, and is a tremendous hit with Esprit ski families.
The Verwall's location simply could not be bettered, at the end of a short, quiet cul-de-sac off Obergurgl's main street, with the easiest possible access to and from the slopes, and accommodation ideally suited to families, with all suites having two separate sleeping areas (Suites 1 & 2 have three!), private facilities and most have a small kitchenette.
Just 30m from the chalet Verwall ski-room door, you can step into your bindings and ski down to the Festkogl gondola, one of the area's main high-speed lifts, and your best route straight up into the Obergurgl half of the ski area. The ski-school meeting point is also here. From here, the choice is yours, either to ski the varied slopes above the village, or to take a blue or red run to the 'Top Express' gondola and whizz across to the wide open slopes of Hochgurgl.
The dining-room on the ground floor provides an ideal setting for adult dinner in the evenings, and can be a little snug at breakfast time when we have a full house! The separate lounge is up on the top floor, with quirky 'hobbit-size' doorway and sloping ceilings. Like the comfortable family suites themselves, the dining-room is furnished in traditional Tyrolean style.
Reflecting the chalet's layout, for the most convivial evening atmosphere (and the least times up and down stairs!), our 4-course adult evening meals here vary slightly from the norm, with a daily cheeseboard as the fourth course, replacing our normal pre-dinner canapés and apéritif.

The enthusiasm of the Child Care team is infectious - our children both enjoyed Snow Club / Nursery and after a ski lesson our eldest said 'this is the best time ever'. The housekeeping team were also great and nothing too was much trouble. Would recommend to anyone and hope to come back again with Esprit.
We had an excellent experience. The team in Obergurgl were fantastic with our children. Thanks...Very good food too!
