We look after you
We’ve selected a wide range of accommodation for you to choose from, all of which offer their own catering options to suit every family. Hotels with half board, catered chalets and even self-catering apartments that have the facilities for you to prepare your own meals or sample some local restaurants.
Catering services are offered for either 6 or 7 nights with options of family dining, early evening meals or high tea for your children. We set high standards for all meals created by us. Our staff attend extensive training before the season starts to ensure you'll enjoy every meal.
Our staff day off occurs once a week, meaning if you are staying in catered accommodation on this day you will receive a limited breakfast and have the opportunity to explore to a local restaurant for your evening meal.
What meals will I get?
In all of our catered accommodation, a hot and cold breakfast is served buffet-style. A choice of cereals or porridge, cold meats, cheese and preserves, bread and croissants, fruit juices, tea and coffee and cooked options such as bacon, sausage, eggs and beans are all included. In our chalets and exclusive hotels✝, a continental style breakfast is left out for you on our staff day off.
In all our chalets and exclusive hotels✝, afternoon tea is served everyday apart from our staff day off. Tea and coffee making facilities and home-baked cakes are laid out for you when you return from the slopes.
We offer a High Tea for all children aged under 11 in chalets and under 7 in hotels exclusive to Esprit✝, all served between 5pm and 6pm.

- Where possible, we will use local suppliers for our wines, cheeses, meats and baked goods.
