Hotel Petit Prince
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-8 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.

The Hotel Petit Prince is host to the Nursery and Kids Club, which are open to all children staying at the hotel or at certain accommodation in the resort.
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.
Kids 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 the Child Care staff in the dedicated Kids 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 Nursery and Kids 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.
Please note that safety standards around balconies, railings and public walkways are different in France and may be lower or have ornamental features that you wouldn’t see in the UK or Ireland.
For your own safety and that of everyone you’re travelling with, please make sure you take care not to lean on or over any railings. If you have children under 12 years, please make sure they’re supervised and not left alone at any time.
