Overview - hotel description - Hotel Petit Prince description

Standing just 10 minutes’ walk from the centre of Alpe d’Huez, the Hotel Petit Prince combines a great ski location with superb facilities and customer service all rolled up in a fantastic accommodation.

The Petit Prince is an excellent hotel run by Langley, Swedish hoteliers renowned for delicious food, fantastic service and providing a relaxed welcoming atmosphere. Well located in the resort, at the top of one of the most demanding stages of the Tour de France, the shops and bars are a short walk away within easy reach, and the hotel's position on the mountain makes for pretty spectacular views over the valley. Your gateway to the mountain is at arm’s length too, with the nearest lift only 50m from the front door – you can pop on your skis and slide down to the chairlift in a proper ski-in, ski-out fashion.

The 43 bedrooms were completely renovated in recent years with a contemporary feel - they are a welcome place to return to after a long day on the mountain. What’s more, they all come with either mountain or valley views, in case you can’t bear to be without the beautiful scenery.

Head down to the bar for an après aperitif – which you can enjoy inside in the warm, or out on the terrace soaking up the sun – and for the twice-weekly bar quizzes, which are guaranteed to be a barrel of laughs.

For families, the hotel offers Childcare for children aged 6 months-11 years on selected season dates. Staff are fully-qualified and are all English-speaking, and are ready to help you maximise your ski break. Rest assured the childcare staff will keep your petit princes and princesses well entertained throughout the holiday.

Please note:

Evening meals are a set menu but can be changed if you have food allergies or are a vegetarian.


Families - any extra notes for parents with children

The Hotel Petit Prince 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 6 x AM ski lessons, pick-up and drop-off from ski lessons, lunch and afternoon care by staff in the dedicated Beanie Bear Club room.

What’s included:
  • Full day care from 8.30am to 5pm
  • 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.

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.

This package holiday to Hotel Petit Prince in Alpe d'Huez, France departs Tuesday 4th January 2022, for a 4 night stay on a "half board" board basis. A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged. It's not included in the basic price of your holiday and is usually paid locally. For reference, the average charged in winter 15/16 was between 50p and £2 per person, per night.

With a transfer time of around 2 hours, Alpe d'Huez is very accessible from Grenoble or Chambery airport. Established in 1936, it was the first resort in France to be installed with a fully operational ski lift. The resort lies in the Grandes Rousses Massif domain. It is partnered by the smaller mountain villages of Auris-en-Oisans, Villard Reculas, Oz-en-Oisans, Vaujany and La Garde, all of which are connected by a free transport system. The slopes are mainly south facing and as a result the area, known as "...
Alpe d’Huez has had sun and snow galore since 1936, and with the culmination of around 20 Million Euros of improvements due to come to fruition for 2021, there is a huge ski area to be explored. With a whopping 52km of greens, this is an excellent place for beginners. The easiest skiing is above the village and Les Bergers. There are plenty of wide-open runs underneath the DMC gondola, many being ‘beginners only’ so you can learn without too much traffic. If you’re feeling confident, try some of the bl...
If you like live music, try the Underground in Vieil Alpe. It combines a pleasant atmosphere with bands playing most nights. Smithy’s has drinks promotions and healthy portions of Tex-Mex food to match. If you can’t bear to miss an important game whilst in France, O’Sharkey’s is the best spot to watch live sports. L’igloo is the place to go if you want to party late into the night. Alpe d’Huez has all of the usual culinary delights you’d expect in the mountains. To sample some traditional French food, ...

"Good hotel all round"

Brian Shuttleworth, Bath
4/ out of 5
The hotel was very good, staff very friendly and food excellent! There wasn’t a massive choice but you could usually ask for more if you wanted it. The drinks were a bit expensive but I guess that’s not unusual for ski hotels. I was staying here with my partner and a friend, I thought I’d booked 2 separate rooms but we ended up in a triple which wasn’t ideal... the staff were very helpful in finding us new rooms but we then ended up quite far away from each other. It wasn’t too bad and the rooms were good, the shower and bathrooms were quite nice and the room size wasn’t massive but they were OK to hang your kit up. You could leave your boots in a room as you came in. The hotel also had a ski hire shop which was useful as if something didnt fit you could get it changed really easily. In order to get to the skiing, you could catch a bus from about 100 yards down the road which took you to the main ski area and stopped off in other places on the way if you needed the shops or anything. You can ski back which was fairly easy or also walk to the chairlift although the ski down from there was quite steep and narrow.

"Second stay in the Petit Prince"

I’d stayed in this hotel before and like it, it’s very clean and the rooms are well appointed. There’s a good chill out zone with a fireplace, pool table and sofas. It’s also very close to the chairlift you take to get onto the mountain (you can walk out the front door, ski down a little run for about 10 yards, take the chairlift up to the top and ski down to the resort in about 15 minutes). The food was a bit hit and miss and to be fair it was the last time I stayed. When you’ve done a full day on the slopes you want a decent meal when you return at the end of the day. From the hotel it takes about a 5 minute walk to get to the nearest bar and there’s also a little shop about 5 minutes away, so it’s a pretty good location.
