Since its introduction to our programme in 2010 the Crystal 2000 has been a huge success with families keen to ski in this highly sought after resort and it's not difficult to understand its appeal when you consider all that it offers. This comfortable hotel has all you could wish for when planning a family ski holiday; in-house childcare, excellent facilities, easy access to the slopes, family rooms and suites, and above all, our Esprit commitment to giving you the best ski holiday ever.
This property is located in Courchevel 1850.
It is hard to beat a location such as our Chalet Hotel Crystal 2000, being above the main resort centre yet situated right on the slopes of Courchevel 1850. The resort centre is an easy ski away and for après ski we offer our free complimentary minibus shuttle from 9pm-midnight every evening and, on our staff night off, from 7pm-midnight.
What more can be said? You walk out of the hotel boot room directly onto the slopes of the Pralong and after one short button lift, can ski down the Bellecôte piste immediately to the heart of 1850! Here, at the centre of La Croisette, the ski schools will meet our guests joining ski or board lessons whilst others can choose to head west to the Méribel valley, or continue down the glorious tree-lined runs to Le Praz or start your day heading high and south up the Saulire. Alternatively you can ski across to the Altiport button and across to the Biollay chairlift. At the end of the ski day you can return directly to the ski room door.
For quicker access to the top of Courchevel the Pralong chairlift from practically outside the hotel takes you across to the Verdons blue run to the Vizelle gondola or the Saulire cable car. You truly are spoilt for choice!
The communal areas here are spacious and welcoming, and parents might wish to make the most of the wellness area. The dining room and outside sun-terrace overlook the pistes and provide an ideal viewing spot for watching the early skiers or those on the last run home.
The suites and bedrooms are light and airy and are of varying sizes so will suit most family groups.
Adventure Soft Play Zone Our Adventure Play Structure is a unique feature here, designed to be enjoyed by children aged 4-12 with its multi-level play zones, which include games, structures to climb upon and a slide to guarantee smiles all around. For younger children, an enclosed, separate play area contains a smaller slide, see-saw rocker and other soft play materials in a safe environment
One of the joys of choosing to take a Chalet Hotel ski holiday is that you’re not doing the cooking. Their staff prepare and serve breakfast, afternoon tea and a 3-course evening meal including wine and coffee, on six days a week in their chalets and on their staff day off, a continental breakfast will be provided for you.
The staff night off gives you a chance to sample some of the delicious local restaurants an ensure that you don’t leave the Alps without your fill of Weiner Schnitzel or Fondue! Their Baby Listening Service ensures that you can enjoy your meal out without worry.
Let them take care of the cooking and with the Baby Listening Service, all the family can sit back, relax and focus on the skiing!
They set high standards for their cuisine, training our staff extensively before the season starts to ensure that you will enjoy every meal.
In all their properties breakfast is served buffet-style with a selection of cold options including a choice of cereals or porridge, cold meats, cheese and preserves, bread (and croissants in France), fruit juices, tea and coffee and a cooked breakfast of bacon, sausage, eggs and beans.
On the staff day off, a continental style breakfast is laid out for you to help yourselves in all their Chalet Hotels.
Their Chalet Hotel teams can also prepare a packed lunch for you on request, at a small local charge.
Every day, apart from their staff day off, a home-baked cake and tea and coffee making facilities are laid out for you to help yourself when you return from the slopes.
In all their Chalet Hotels, and their two Austrian Xtra chalets, they also prepare a savoury treat to accompany the sweet ones.
High Tea at 5:30pm is served as a 2-course evening meal to all children up to 7 years old (and to 8-10-year-olds if preferred). Parents are asked to accompany their children under 3, whilst 3-10-year-olds are supervised by their childcare team.
Adult dinner at 7:30pm begins with a prosecco apéritif, followed by a choice of appetiser, main course and either dessert or local cheese, accompanied by a choice of red, white and rose wine, and culminating with tea or coffee.
Adults (and any children aged 8 and over joining the adults) are asked to choose their starter and main course at breakfast time, and there's always a vegetarian daily option too. Please note that children will be eating the adult menu choices if they choose to eat at 7.30pm.
On the staff night off you and your family have the opportunity to eat out in one of the local restaurants. Our staff will be happy to help with recommendations and bookings if you wish. If you would prefer, you can always order in a takeaway pizza, and have a relaxing evening in.
They always prepare a vegetarian main course in our Chalet Hotels, as well as any other specific dietary requirements, if we are advised in advance.
Special diets can be accommodated at a cost of £35 per person per week. Please notify us of your dietary needs at the time of booking. Your Chalet Hosts will discuss your dietary requirements with you upon arrival to the Chalet Hotel.
Chalet Hotels offer traditional fare for Christmas dinner, with roast turkey and all the trimmings, Christmas pudding, mince pies, crackers, party hats and of course a pre-dinner glass of Champagne plus a lively, fun atmosphere for all the family.
This is the one meal that all families share together regardless of children’s ages, so in some properties, the dining tables can be quite crowded, but this adds to the festive ambience of all celebrating together!
A special festive menu followed by Champagne is also served on New Year’s Eve, but this is for adults only (and those aged 11 and over of course) unless you are staying in a Family Dining chalet.
