    The Langley-run Hotel Brunerie is a central hotel in Les Deux Alpes with the convenience of being just 5 minutes' walk from the Jandri Express lift, and also an 8-minute walk from the kids' ski school. Better still - on Sundays there is a free shuttle bus direct to the ski school, so no one will be complaining about having to carry their skis.

    There are 58 comfortable rooms that have views over either the mountain or the resort and snuggly warm beds.

    The Snow Bar has a fresh look with airy and spacious interiors throughout. It should be your first stop when you come off the mountain, with its cosy fireplace corner, wide choice of international cocktails and fantastic views over the resort and surrounding mountains. What's more, there's even an amended bar choice for the kids. But before you settle down with a drink, chill out in the hotel’s pool and sauna - for soothing any sore ski legs – and, don’t worry, there are also kids' facilities on request.

    The White Eden restaurant at La Brunerie serves traditional alpine fare, with a continental buffet breakfast and a 3-course set-menu evening meal that perfectly blends the delicious flavours of Scandinavian and French cuisine.

    This winter, look out for free and reduced prices for kids aged 2-11 years inclusive when they are sharing with 2 adults.

    What's Nearby

    The Hotel Brunerie is located on the main road in Les Deux Alpes, at the bottom of a collection of nursery slope lifts and green runs, and a short walk to the Jandri Express. A 10-minute walk down the main road brings you to the Super Venosc lift – your gateway to the Vallée Blanche, the other half of the ski area. Next door to the hotel is a U Express supermarket – great for picking up snacks for the day – and across the road is La Porte d’à Côté restaurant. A short walk either way down the road, though, will bring you to loads more shops and restaurants.

    Families

    The Hotel Brunerie is host to Pepi Penguin Nursery and Beanie Bear Club, which are open to all children staying at the hotel or at certain accommodation in the resort.

    Pepi Penguin Nursery (6 months - 4 years) is run by our UK-qualified childcare staff and held in a dedicated room equipped with games and toys. Outdoor play included (weather and parental consent permitting).

    What's included:

    • Full day care from 8.30am to 5pm
    • 2-course hot lunch
    • Snacks and drinks throughout the day
    • A daily routine and activities report for your child
    Activities vary daily. We'll find time for stories, singing, arts and crafts including painting and collage making, plus messy play in the sand tray and free play with age-relevant toys set out for the children to choose what they want to do.

    We're also really keen to take in some fresh mountain air each day, so we aim to have an outdoor activity at least once a day – maybe snowy walks, a gondola ride or snow painting. And if your child is used to a sleep, we'll factor that in too.


    Beanie Bear Club (4-8 years) provides plenty of fun-filled days as our childcare staff offer a combination of care and skiing, which includes 5 or 6 x AM ski lessons, pick-up and drop-off from ski lessons, lunch and afternoon care by Crystal staff in the dedicated Beanie Bear Club room.

    What’s included:
    • Full day care from 8.30am to 5pm
    • 5 or 6 x AM ski lessons, ski school drop-offs and pick-ups*
    • Child skis, boots and helmet hire
    • 2-course hot lunch
    • Snacks and drinks throughout the day
    * Lift passes aren't included as each child's needs are different. If and when your child feels confident enough to use the lifts, you'll need to buy a lift pass locally. Children who are complete beginners will attend 6 days of ski school. Children who are in level 1 or above will have 5 day ski school with a day off on Wednesday. This can be used as a rest day from skiing, when our childcare team will run an action-packed morning of activities.

    Activities vary daily – to include games, arts and crafts and storytime – and are often based around a theme.

    We're also really keen to take in some fresh mountain air each day, so we aim to have an outdoor activity at least once a day – maybe bus bingo, snowman competitions or a treasure hunt.

    Both Pepi Penguin Nursery and Beanie Bear Club operate for 6 days and must be pre-booked to guarantee a place. Evening clubs are also available to book in resort for an extra charge.

    All our staff are UK-qualified, English-speaking and first-aid trained, and have had DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) and reference checks. And we prioritise maintaining the correct adult:child ratios.

    Please note, all childcare is an extra charge and must be pre-booked to guarantee a place. In some instances, childcare does not extend the full length of the ski season. Please contact the sales team for additional information.

Ratings

With all the various national tourist boards applying widely varying criteria to hotel ratings, the whole question of international hotel grades has become confused. We have therefore applied our own 'rating', representing the general standards of that country in order that fairer comparisons can be made.

Please note: rating may differ from the official star rating of the local tourist board. Our classifications take into account not only the basic facilities, but also the location, leisure facilities, general character and atmosphere of the hotel, as well as customer feedback. Chalet ratings give comparisons with other chalets but do not provide like for like comparisons with the ratings of full service hotels.

Your package price and availability

Our website's prices and flight, accommodation and room availability are updated every morning. To calculate average price per person, applicable discounts are subtracted from your total cost, which is then divided by the number of adults and children (excluding infants). A full price breakdown can be viewed on the payment page.

In some circumstances, prices and availability may update during the day so you may find price/availability differences later in the booking process.

This is usually due to high demand for the selected holiday. Should you have any issues with this, please contact us or see here for more information.
