To start planning your vacation to Chalet Le R
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, shops and restaurants in 1550 in the morning (08:00 - 10:00) and afternoon (16:30 and 18:30). The service operates each day except on the chef's day off. Chalet Le R may also take advantage of the 1850 driver service while in 1850.
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).
Chalet Le R has a superb wellness area, complete with private swimming pool, Jacuzzi and sauna.
|GoPro HD camera||
All our chalets come with a GoPro HD camera. Film your exploits on the pistes and watch the results on screen in the chalet at the end of the day. Attached to a chest harness, these devices are really easy to use, and are a fun way to see where you've skied that day, or how your children are now skiing better than you! We can also provide you with a memory stick (at a small charge) for you to edit your own film after your vacation.
Parking is available for one car at Chalet Le R.
The open plan lounge and dining room has a large flatscreen TV with UK channels, Blu-ray DVD player, Apple TV and surround speakers.
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.
Our chalet service is the foundation of Scott Dunn upon which our reputation as the benchmark for top quality chalet vacations has been built.

Our friendly chalet hosts are hospitality professionals, carefully selected for their service skills and charm and are trained to exacting standards. From bringing you tea in bed in the morning, to entertaining your children and serving you canapés and Champagne, their role is to ensure your chalet is delightful and welcoming home from home.

Location & Directions
Courchevel 1550, France
Chalet Le R has a superb location in Courchevel 1550, just a 5 minute walk from the main Grangettes gondola which takes you directly up to the main hub at Courchevel 1850.
When to go
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.
