Courchevel offers a great balance of high and medium altitude and predominantly north-facing slopes to offer excellent skiing throughout the winter. In December, huge capacity for artificial snowmaking and the connection to the Val Thorens valley make good skiing probable. Courchevel really comes into its own from January to March, typically seeing regular snowfalls. When it gets really cold, runs to the lower villages are bearable and come spring time, north-facing pitches hold up well.

A stunning contemporary chalet in Courchevel 1550 and new to the Scott Dunn collection, Chalet Le R is a beautiful alpine retreat with swimming pool, hot tub and sauna. Perfect for a luxury family ski vacation in the Three Valleys, Chalet Le R sleeps 8+4.
Chalet Le R heralds our first ever foray into Courchevel 1550, which, with its ever increasing number of luxury properties, is hot on the heels of its glitzier big brother, Courchevel 1850. This chalet has a distinct uniqueness about it which we have fallen in love with - its contemporary design, vast open plan living area and breathtaking views wow on every level.
The floor to ceiling windows in the living area make the chalet feel incredibly light and spacious and you will find yourself gazing in wonder at the beauty of the landscape beyond. Wander out onto the vast terrace with a drink and allow yourself to be dazzled by your surroundings.
The main four bedrooms are located on the lower level of the chalet, with three double/twin bedrooms plus a large master bedroom. Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and shared WCs. Two further bedrooms are located on the same floor as the wellness area.
The skiing is easily accessible via the Grangettes gondola which is a short walk from the chalet, although we will drive you to the slopes each day if you wish. Courchevel 1550 has a quick and efficient lift system taking you straight up to the main lift hub at 1850 and into the vast Three Valleys ski area. Back at the chalet, take a refreshing dip in the pool, ease away the aches in the hot tub or sauna and sit back in the enormous living room and allow our chalet team to spoil you.
For guests staying in Chalet Le R in Courchevel Village (1550), your Chalet Host/Driver will provide a driver service to take you to and from the lifts in the morning (08:00 - 10:00) and afternoon (16:30 and 18:30).
We feel that Chalet Le R is most comfortable for a party of eight, however, the chalet can sleep up to 12 as there are two additional bedrooms on the basement level.

Scott Dunn pioneered skiing vacations with childcare, allowing parents the freedom to ski whilst their children are expertly looked after by a qualified private nanny. Our handpicked childcare team are qualified professionals, whose enthusiasm and nurturing abilities are in abundance, so much so that both parents and children often ask to take them home. In our Courchevel chalets, our private nannies look after children from as young as four months, making sure the entire family has a relaxed, fun and memorable vacation. They organize age appropriate activities and can take the older ones to and from ski school, allowing you to spend all day on the slopes. A nutritious lunch is served each day, as well as healthy snacks, with any dietary requirements taken into account and your child’s routine will be strictly adhered to. We can also provide a wide range of equipment for babies and toddlers on request, including nappies and wipes, usually free of charge. And if you’d like to go out in the evening, we can provide babysitting.
All our Scott Dunn nannies are fully qualified (CACHE trained or similar) and are carefully selected for their natural ability with children and their nurturing and fun approach. We provide rigorous pre-season training which includes a paediatric first aid course, water safety and spending time with our chefs learning how to prepare nutritious snacks and lunches. Available for five days a week, they ensure your children enjoy a range of activities, whilst adhering to their home routines. They can also take children to, and collect from ski school each day.
Babysitting can be arranged in the evenings and is chargeable by the hour (€20 for the first hour, then €10 per hour until midnight, and €20 per hour thereafter).

Courchevel has a reputation as a place for rock stars and royalty but make no mistake, it is one of the world’s premier ski resorts with good reason. The skiing has breadth and depth that is unequalled. The extent of the Three Valleys combined with perfectly groomed runs, vertiginous off-piste couloirs, gentle runs at village level and much admired tree skiing mean Courchevel has lots for skiers of all standards.
If skiing is just a sideshow for you, the boutiques and art galleries will keep you occupied until it is lunchtime at one of Courchevel’s many fine restaurants. Most renowned eateries including Cap Horn, Chalet de Pierres, Bel Air and Soucoupe are accessible by road or by gondola.
Apart from skiing, the village has plenty to offer. We recommend the toboggan run from 1850 down to your base in 1550 is a long standing favorite activity of ours. Up in 1850 there is a farmers’ market on Wednesdays and the Forum is home to an Olympic ice rink, bowling alley, climbing wall and small gym. Paragliding, horse drawn carriage rides, forest walks, show-shoeing, cross-country skiing, ice karting and hot-air balloon rides are also possible.
Courchevel hosts special events including the International Pyrotechnic Festival, the most impressive fireworks display you will ever see, and ski-jumping competitions at the Olympic ski jump in Le Praz.
Gardner Family - February 2017 (Guest)
What can I say that could adequately express how wonderful this vacation has been. The chalet is great - location, amenities, pool and jacuzzi are perfect. The skiing at Courchevel has been amazing and we've all really enjoyed it. When it comes to your staff there are no words to express how professional and attentive they've been. Caroline is a true professional and probably has the steadiest hands in the business - very impressive. Harry is charming and he's a step ahead of us at every turn. And TJ - what could possibly say about TJ that could put into word how much we've enjoyed his food. In our humble opinion he's a genius and we've enjoyed everything he's cooked for us. Thank you Scott Dunn for a truly memorable and unforgettable vacation!

It's easy to overlook 1550 in favour of 1850, but in my opinion there's something rather refreshing about being based here, away from the hustle and bustle of Courchevel 1850. Everything about 1550 is more laid back, it's small, easy to get around and friendly. The lifts are a short walk from the chalet but of course there's a vehicle to whisk you there if you'd rather. Getting up to the skiing in 1850 couldn't be easier - in fact there's a choice of a bubble or chairlift to get you there. And if you're up early, sneak in a quick run back down again and you'll experience corduroy pistes with virtually no-one on them, as this run is often empty first thing as everyone heads further up the mountain.
Le R is a fantastic chalet, the most contemporary in design of all our Courchevel chalet and just a little bit cool. You will never tire of those sweeping views across the valley from the spacious living area and when the mountain tops turn pink in the late afternoon sun, it's a truly spectacular sight.
Having a pool in the chalet is a total joy for families - the kids will love having a swim after skiing and parents can ease weary limbs in the hot tub!
My tip is to take a trip to the new Aquamotion center just along the road in 1550. This is superb place to entertain the kids - a multitude of swimming pools, climbing wall, restaurants and a great bar - not to be missed!

Chalet Le R is a fabulous modern chalet located in Courchevel 1550. Walking into the open plan living room and dining room is overwhelming as the views across the valley are absolutely stunning. The windows extend from one side to the other with a fabulous fireplace in the center. This is a very sociable chalet, with its amazing wellness center including a swimming pool, Jacuzzi and sauna. The location is great with the Grangettes lift only a few minutes away and you can pretty much ski the whole way home where you will have afternoon tea awaiting you.
