The Hotel Alpenaussicht is the perfect hotel if you're after an all-round fantastic experience. Just a short walk from the centre of Obergurgl and virtually opposite the Festkogel gondola, the hotel is in a great location for skiing and exploring.

The hotel is built into the mountainside, so you'll enter via the main road to the top floor, where the reception, restaurant and bar are located. These areas are decorated in traditional Austrian style, and you'll be welcomed with excellent service from the Ribis family.

Quietly located away from the roads of Obergurgl, the rooms have views of the Ötz Valley or the surrounding peaks.  All the rooms are tastefully decorated with modern touches to complement their classic style.  Try the Vital Spa, a wellness haven that’s home to herbal and Tyrolean saunas, Kneipp foot baths and massage showers. There's also a relaxation lounge with panoramic views. And in case all the skiing hasn't worn you out, there's a fitness room with a selection of training equipment to help keep you in tip-top condition.

The food is simply delicious too – expect beautifully presented Austrian dishes that explore the best ingredients of the Tyrol, many sourced from the hotel's own farm.

Ski hire

We have a great selection of Club ski and board equipment to hire at competitive prices.  Combine this with our discounted lift pass and free ski carriage deal  for outstanding value for money.

For members who do not want to use ski carriage, a free in-resort rental option can be offered with your lift pass instead.  However, this option is for basic skis, which are unlikely to match those offered by ESC.  Contact the holidays organiser if you are interested in this option.

The Hotel Plein Sud is a lovely family-run hotel in the centre of the village of Chantemerle. It's just 250m from the ski lifts and the bottom of the famous Luc Alphand run. The hotel offers a very warm welcome, with a cosy atmosphere in the recently renovated bar. The outdoor covered heated swimming pool is the ideal way to relax after a day on the mountain.

Serre Chevalier is known for having 300 days of sunshine per year and the south-facing rooms in this hotel are perfect for enjoying the last of the afternoon sunshine.

After the success of our recent Selva, Val Gardena holiday, we return to Italy's fabulous Sella Ronda area, this time to Arabba.  It boasts excellent, challenging pistes, and the stunning slopes of the mighty Marmolada glacier are within easy reach, as is the highly recommended Hidden Valley. Part of the spectacular Dolomiti Superski area, the modern lift system ensures Arabba links easily to the Sella Ronda, with Canazei in the Val di Fassa to the West, and Corvara in the sunny Alta Badia ski area to the North.

The Hotel Garni Bellavista is above the centre of Arabba and gets great views of the surrounding valleys and mountains. Simplicity and comfort is the best way to describe this hotel - all at a good price. The rooms are simple in their design but clean and comfortable. The centre of the resort and ski lifts are just 500 metres away taking around ten minutes at a casual pace. Don't worry about lugging your boots and equipment with you though as you can leave them in the ski deposit at the partner hotel, Hotel Portavescovo, which is very close to the piste.

Breakfast at the hotel is a varied continental selection with coffees and juices. Evenings meals are in the restaurant at nearby Hotel Portavescovo, where you can also use the indoor pool, sauna, steam room and gym.
