You are welcome to join a chalet as an individual family, or you can book the whole or a part of a chalet for your group.  There are two ‘Xtra’ chalets, the Pepi Gabl in St Anton and the Alpenblume in Obergurgl, both of which have been refurbished allowing Esprit families that little bit ‘Xtra’, to enhance the chalet experience.  The extras here include a residents’ bar run by Esprit staff, cakes and a savoury option with afternoon tea, rosé wine as an additional wine choice and a local cheeseboard as a fifth course with dinner.  The Xtra chalets also have Baby Listening/Child Patrol Service from 7.30 to 10.30pm every evening.




Esprit Chalets

Many Esprit chalets have the added bonus of a log fire, sauna, hot tub, or sometimes all three! Some even have an in-house swimming pool, or free access to the resort leisure centre specially for Esprit guests. They have also introduced FREE Wifi in all of the chalets for your families’ convenience.  In the smaller chalets, your Chalet Host takes care of all the guest care arrangements, from the cooking to the cleaning.  Larger chalets will generally have an experienced Chef to run the kitchen, with a Housekeeper to take care of cleaning duties, and depending on the size of the chalet, an Assistant Host or two to help keep the chalet spick and span.  On the chalet hosts’ one day off, they will leave out a simple breakfast for you, and that evening you and your family have the chance to eat out in one of the local restaurants.


Esprit Child Care

For parents, Esprit Classic Child Care means being able to leave your accommodation after breakfast to head for the first lifts, only needing to return after the last one shuts. We look after your children completely throughout the ski day if you wish. While the babies and toddlers go to our Nursery, Esprit staff take the older ones to our partner ski-school, collect them, give them lunch, run activities to keep them happy and stimulated and then take them back to their chalets for their high tea, giving you our super-convenient ‘Seamless Service’ throughout the day.
