We stayed at the Alpenblume in the second week of Jan for our family ski holiday. Like everyone else in the chalet we were travelling with Esprit ski who cater specifically for families. We had a really fantastic week, and once again could not fault the Esprit ski staff or the childcare. Both children were fantastically looked after (one in nursery, one in ski school and snow-club) by really nice, enthusiastic and caring staff.
The Alpenblume itself is ideally positioned for people in ski school as the meeting point is about 100m away across the road, as is the children's ski area. There is also a small play park here which was used by the nursery staff.
The main lifts are a short bus ride away, but no problem as the bus stop is literally outside the chalet.
The food was good -well presented and a good variety, with vegetarians well-catered for. As is Esprit's policy the kids eat their tea earlier meaning a relaxed adult-only dinner.
We stayed in suite 18 which was a very good size -two seperate bedrooms leading off of a large hallway with lots of storage. There was also a small kitchenette which was useful. The bedrooms and bathroom were basic but comfortable and kept very clean. The chalet could probably do with a bit of a face-lift internally, but for skiing accommodation I thought it was perfectly adequate.
In summary, if you are looking for somewhere to stay for a really enjoyable family ski holiday then this place ticks all the boxes. If it is luxury you are after then this is probably not the place for you.
