Chalet Hotel Crystal 2000, Courchevel 1850
Since its introduction to our programme in 2010 the Crystal 2000 has been a huge success with families keen to ski in this highly sought after resort and it's not difficult to understand its appeal when you consider all that it offers. This comfortable hotel has all you could wish for when planning a family ski holiday; in-house child care, excellent leisure facilities, easy access to the slopes, family rooms and suites and above all, our commitment to giving you the best ski holiday ever.
Location, location, location!
It is hard to beat a location such as our Chalet Hotel Crystal 2000, being above the main resort centre yet situated right on the slopes of Courchevel 1850. The resort centre is an easy ski away and for après ski we offer our free complimentary minibus shuttle from 9pm-midnight every evening and, on our staff night off, from 7pm-midnight.
Ski Area Access
What more can be said? You walk out of the hotel boot room directly onto the slopes of the Pralong and after one short button lift, can ski down the Bellecôte piste immediately to the heart of 1850! Here, at the centre of La Croisette, the ski schools will meet our guests joining ski or board lessons whilst others can choose to head west to the Méribel valley, or continue down the glorious tree-lined runs to Le Praz or start your day heading high and south up the Saulire. Alternatively you can ski across to the Altiport button and across to the Biollay chairlift. At the end of the ski day you can return directly to the ski room door.
For quicker access to the top of Courchevel the Pralong chairlift from practically outside the hotel takes you across to the Verdons blue run to the Vizelle gondola or the Saulire cable car. You truly are spoilt for choice!
Comfortable Hotel Facilities
The Crystal 2000 really does lend itself ideally to families. Its communal areas are spacious and welcoming and parents might prefer to make the most of the wellness area. The dining room and outside sun-terrace overlook the pistes and provide an ideal viewing spot for watching the early skiers or those on the last run home.
The suites and bedrooms are light and airy and are of varying sizes so will suit most family groups.
Adventure Soft Play Zone
Brand new for Esprit for the 2014/15 season, is our Adventure Play Structure. Older children, aged 4-12 can enjoy the multi-level play area, which includes games, structures to climb up, down and through and of course, a slide to guarantee smiles all around. For younger children, an enclosed, separate play area contains a smaller slide, see-saw rocker and other soft play materials in a safe environment
Holidays to this property are particularly suitable for families.

Meals - Chalet Hotel Crystal 2000, Courchevel 1850
The chalet host will have a day off during the course of the week, during which you will be required to eat out.
Breakfast: A good breakfast is essential on a ski holiday, so we provide a choice of cereals or porridge, fruit juices, plentiful tea and coffee, local bread (and croissants or ‘pains au chocolat’ in France), cold meats, cheeses and preserves, and boiled eggs. This is normally presented buffet-style for you to help yourself. Additionally we offer a daily hot dish, such as scrambled eggs with mushrooms or home-made pancakes.
Afternoon tea: The traditional ‘welcome home’ after a day on the slopes will be laid out for you by your chalet host, ready for your return. A good cup of tea or coffee is the perfect accompaniment to a delicious slice of freshly home-baked cake.
Children’s High Tea: High Tea provides children under 13 with a healthy menu, but tailored more towards children’s tastes than our main adult dinner, and puréed food is also always available for infants on request. Parents are asked to accompany their children under 36 months at High Tea please, whilst children from 3-12 years will be supervised.
Adult Dinner: Five-course dinners for adults (and children 13 and over only) start with canapés and an apéritif, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert. The meal is accompanied by a choice of wines, unlimited during the meal service, with freshly chilled water also always available, and followed by complimentary coffee or tea with chocolates to round off your evening.
Special Diets: Vegetarian options are always on ‘Culinary Choice’ menu in Chalet Hotels, and are available in chalets if you advise us in advance. Any dietary requirements must be advised to us at the time of booking in order for us to be fully prepared.
Family Dining: For those families who prefer to eat together with their younger children, we offer our Family Dining option in any chalet of up to 12 beds, if you book the whole chalet for your own party, subject to chalet suitability. Everyone then eats together in the evening, starting at 6.30-7.00pm. The meals are based on our adult menus, with some flexibility for younger taste buds, although not a complete ‘à la carte’ choice!
