We are a family group of 11 and this chalet was ideal. Our experience was overall was very good and we enjoyed a white christmas with thanks to all the staff at the chalet and the Esprit staff.
Lucie and all the staff where always helpful,attentive and hardworking. The rooms - warm and tidy and cleaned to a good standard. Plenty of storage and hanging space. There was always plenty of hot water at whatever time we showered. Food throughout our stay was good on the whole and we were served plenty of it. A choice of red and white wine served until dessert.
Younger children had their own dinner sitting at 5.30pm which was great for us as we could eat in peace. The honesty bar worked well, beer, wine, soft drinks and chocolate bars available for a fair price.
We did not use the sauna area but it was very clean and would accommodate about 5 people at a time. There is a shower and relaxation area. If you want to use the sauna it is best to let the staff know in the morning so it can be switched on for your return. The boot room is small but adequate, there is a bench outside that can also be used. Our boots where always dry the next morning.
Obergurgl catered for all our ski/snowboard abilities and the snow was good. The chalet is an ideal base as ski shop and ski school office/meeting point are all within 2 mins walk and you can ski in/out from the back of the chalet. There is a local mini mart by the Sportiv Hotel about 3mins walk away. The pizzeria at the Haus Gurgl (in front of the chalet) was excellent!
The ski bus to Obergurgl centre/Hochgurgl/Solden is at the bottom of the drive but we found it quicker to walk to the centre than wait for the bus in the evening. The bus service in both directions is frequent and free to all lift pass holders.
For our group the price was reasonable. Without this chalet option we would not have discovered the delights of Obergurgl, as other hotels and chalets where a lot more expensive. The
Chalet Christophorus exceeded our expectations for the price we paid.
