One of the larger chalets in our programme the Chalet Alpenblume offers a great deal of flexilbilty and a wonderful social atmosphere. Many of the accomodation's areas are planned for refurbishment bringing this well located chalet up to date.
Chalet Alpenblume's location is absolutely ideal, within a couple of minutes' walk to the nearest piste and the main Festkogl gondola lift, giving quick access up into the heart of the Obergurgl ski area.
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 the 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 the accompanying staff in child care.
