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 particularly spacious family accommodation. Each has a downstairs lounge, with the bedrooms above, reached by an internal staircase.
The wellness area on the lower ground floor has a sauna, steam room and infra-red cabin plus a 'Kneippbad' for easing tired ski feet!
The entrance reception area and lounge/bar offer a convivial seating area for enjoying afternoon tea or pre-dinner apéritifs, 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 Child Care.
Obergurgl is one of Austria’s most famous and most sought-after ski resorts, and deservedly so – especially for Esprit family ski holidays! Set high at the end of the picturesque Ötz Valley, the village centre benefits from having no through traffic at all, and the ski area boasts an enviable snow record often stretching from November right through until May.
Obergurgl works wonderfully well for family skiing holidays. The children’s kindergarten ski area and ski-school meeting point are now both conveniently located on the slopes 80m from our Chalet Verwall. For children who have progressed beyond the beginners’ stage, the blue runs of the Gaisberg provide the ideal area to move on to, and wide open slopes and superb snow conditions make for relaxed, enjoyable skiing.
