The beautifully rustic rooms are all individually styled with traditional mountain pine and exquisite attention to detail. The rooms feel snug and cozy, perfect for relaxing in after a full day on the slopes.

The two-star Michelin restaurant offers gourmet cuisine from the chef Michel Rochedy, combining exotic inspiration with produce from his own garden. The fantastic dishes are complimented by an outstanding wine list. Guests can dine in the elegant dining room with open kitchen and admire the award winning chefs in action, or take advantage of the extensive sun terrace boasting stunning mountain views. Alternatively, you can eat at the Chabotté Bistro, which serves traditional Savoyard fare. Drinks and appetising snacks are served at the bar which is open for delicious freshly baked cakes, buns and other sweets in the morning and tapas in the evening. Every Wednesday sees Jazz night with an impressive dessert buffet by the fireplace. There is also a gourmet food shop where you can purchase homemade produced signed by Michel Rochedy.

Water paths, a sensory and tactile tropical rain trail, and an 'Alpine bath' bio sauna add to the innovative facilities on offer.

We offer childcare from 4 months and ensure that children have the most fantastic vacations and that parents can completely relax with peace of mind that their family is in great hands. Your children can be taken to and collected from ski lessons and will be kept entertained with a varied and imaginative activity program and given healthy lunches and snacks (to be paid for locally).

Our childcare staff are qualified professionals and guests can opt to have a private nanny service . Babysitting is available too. A wide range of equipment for babies and toddlers can be provided to all guests on request, mostly free of charge.

Activities

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 a flight from the famous altiport or a cookery course with Michel Rochedy, the Michelin starred chef at Le Chabichou. The toboggan run to 1550 is another favorite. 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.

Location & Directions

Courchevel 1850, France

Courchevel 1850, 4 mins walk to town center. Nearest lift - Plantrey.

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.
