Tour operator Esprit have announced a total of £400 in savings on a week's holiday to the top Austrian resort of St. Anton over the coming Christmas week, 2009.

The package holiday is on offer to Esprit's Chalet Alber for holidays commencing Dec. 20 with the cost reduced to £829 per adult, with free children's places available.

The price includes return flights from Gatwick (Manchester flights are also available at a supplement), transfers, seven nights' catered chalet accommodation (daily breakfast and afternoon tea), children's high tea and a four-course adult evening meal with wine, coffee and chocolates included six nights per week) with free children's ski equipment, free children's lift passes plus a  free ‘Kick Start' ski session with an instructor. 

Having many of the holiday cost elements included in the package offers greater protection against the current poor state of the pound against the Euro, which is making buying food and drink extremely expensive in resort for cash-strapped Brits.

As an added bonus for families, Esprit offers free evening clubs for children and a free evening baby-listening and child patrol service for parents' complete peace of mind.
