Why we love Courchevel

The ultimate skiers’ playground, Courchevel is the glamorous heart of Les Trois Vallées and we love it! Here are some reasons why…

The skiing – a veritable skiers’ paradise in the world’s largest lift-linked ski area, with access to 600kms of piste and over 170 lifts.

More skiing – the ultimate playground for intermediate skiers, with a wealth of confidence boosting blue and runs, with long gentle runs leading back down to the resort center.

The glamour – arrive in style at Courchevel’s Altiport, home to one of the world’s most dramatic airstrips and featured in the James Bond classic ‘Tomorrow Never Dies.’

The shopping – window shop your way round Courchevel from the designer labels: Moncler, Prada and Lacroix to the more affordable brands such as Superdry…

The accommodation – we have 8 chalets in Courchevel 1850 and one in 1550 and have a hand-picked portfolio of hotels, offering something for everyone.

The après – admittedly Courchevel isn’t renowned for its après scene in comparison to other places like St Anton, but if you fancy dancing on the tables while the DJ pumps out the tunes from his booth in a piste basher, then head to Cap Horn – it’s quite an experience, even if you only do it once.

The fun – from hot air balloons to sky diving, from snowmobiling to driving a piste basher, Courchevel has plenty of fun activities to offer away from the slopes. And of course, there’s the brand new Aquamotion center offering a plethora of swimming pools, indoor climbing and surfing…

The food – take your pick from a superb range of restaurants from 2 Michelin stars at the Chabichou, the newly opened Cucina Angelina headed up by Angela Hartnett at the Portetta Hotel, to the Cap Horn, serving seafood & sushi at 2000m or a really good burger at Cave des Creux.

The ski schools – top notch instruction and ski clinics – including two of the best British-run ski schools in the Alps, New Generation and Supreme.

The lifts – fast efficient lift system giving speedy access into the heart of the Three Valleys ski area connecting Meribel and Val Thorens.
