Hotel Esprit Montagne (1000 m altitude) is situated in the picturesque mountain village of La Chapelle d'Abondance, in the lovely Vallée d'Abondance.
The village centre
La Chapelle d'Abondance is the oldest village in the valley and has the most sun hours of all. The village has a good number of high quality restaurants and bars, two tea rooms, a cinema, a library, a ski museum and several art galleries.
However, do not expect heavy après-ski here. La Chapelle is a peaceful village. One of the pubs however has to be mentioned: Le Fer Rouge. Here, they brew their own beers and offer their specialty "Bière Brulant". For real-après ski the nearby village of Chatel is ideal.
All year round
Most ski resorts change into abandoned "ghost towns” after the winter season. La Chapelle d'Abondance, however, is alive and charming the whole year round.
Each season has its charm. In winter the village is one of the twelve stations of the famous Portes du Soleil ski area. Every week there are interesting activities on the agenda, including torchlight descents, raclette evenings or ski demonstrations.

Spring, summer and autumn
In winter a thick layer of snow covers the landscape. It’s almost impossible then to imagine green Alpine meadows, where rural life plays such an important role. But once the snow melts, the purple and white crocuses and hundreds of other alpine flowers emerge quickly. They give the landscape joyful colours and gaiety. Throughout the year, the flora and fauna keep on changing in this enchanting valley.
