This attractive Chalet Alpenblume (all interiors upgrade for 2013/14 season) is now a firm favourite with families. Its location is absolutely ideal, being close not only to our popular Chalet Verwall, which houses the resort’s Snow Club, but within a mere minute or two’s walk of the nearest piste and the main Festkogel gondola-lift, giving speedy access up into the heart of the Obergurgl ski area.
**Please note this is a family orientated property and the operator will not take bookings for adult only groups**
The original chalet building houses the majority of the bedrooms and two suites, all of which has been refurbished over the summer in light woods and warm colours and all with their own private en suite facilities and TVs. The chalet’s new wing, internally linked, includes the owner’s private apartment and three modern guest apartments, offering ideal spacious family accommodation. Each has a downstairs lounge, with the bedrooms above, reached by an internal staircase.
The chalet Alpenblume main building also offers traditional Austrian style communal areas, including an entrance lobby with reception desk, a small lounge with a log fireplace and an additional cosy ‘snug’ lounge. The dining-room (possibly a touch tight at breakfast if all families attend at once!) is delightfully clad in Tyrolean knotty-pine panelling, and its charm and ambience lends itself to convivial dinners with good wine, tasty food and lively conversation.

One of the joys of choosing to take a catered chalet 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 chalets.
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.
Xtra Chalet Meals
Blending both the chalet and Chalet Hotel full-service, their Xtra chalet range feature the same number of courses as their Chalet Hotels but without the choices at each course. All the same, we will be offering a daily choice of dessert or cheese option to round off your dinner.
Dinner on staff days off
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.
Family Dining Chalets
If it's important to you to eat dinner altogether as a family, they offer Family Dining when you book the entire chalet for exclusive use. Dinner is then served from 6:30pm with the menu based on their adult dishes with some flexibility for the children's preferences. There is a supplement of £39 per child for Family Dining.
Alternatively, you may wish to consider staying with us in a Chalet Hotel where children aged 8 and above have the option of joining their parents at the adult dinner
They can cater for vegetarians staying in their Xtra chalets, 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 or Chalet Hotel.
Christmas & New Year Celebrations
Chalets 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.
