A chic resort with four unique villages and some of the best skiing in the Alps.
- One of the most exclusive resorts in the world, with its four unique villages perfectly placed in the 600km Three Valleys area.
- Host to an abundance of top-class restaurants, with seven boasting 12 Michelin stars between them.
- Good choice of accommodation, from family-friendly apartments to luxurious hotels with spas.
Courchevel is made up of four different villages, each with its own distinct feel and atmosphere. These were renamed a few seasons back, but are still commonly known by their old names and are all linked by a frequent free bus service.
The Courchevel valley has top skiing for all abilities. The perfectly-groomed pistes that glide into the Courchevel resort are ideal for beginners, who may find that a local lift pass will be enough. Intermediates and advanced skiers are also spoilt for choice with over 600km of immaculate pistes to explore in the wider Three Valleys ski area.
Courchevel’s four different villages comprise Le Praz (1300), a pretty and quiet village with tree-lined slopes and direct access to 1850; Courchevel 1550, which has a relaxed atmosphere and good slope access; Courchevel 1650, with a really lively atmosphere and a great selection of shops and bars; and 1850, where you'll find a host of chic boutiques, as well as a huge selection of restaurants and fine dining, some complete with Michelin stars.
Try out the innovative Aquamotion, a state-of-the-art indoor and outdoor swimming and wellness complex. It houses an array of pools for adults and children alike, complete with water slides, climbing wall and indoor surfing, as well as a spa area for relaxation and an assortment of beauty treatments - perfect. Plus, the Family Park has been given a new look for this season - try and spot the giraffe around Courchevel...
The Ariondaz gondola from Courchevel 1650 to Bel Air, in the heart of the ski area features eight seat cabins, a ride time of just seven minutes and it will be lit from on-aboard solar panels. The run that takes you back to the village also benefits from snow cannons - along with the additional 150 installed for this season.
New for winter 18/19 is the re-model of the eight seat Mont Vallon gondolas, automatic selfies on the Combes chairlift in Meribel-Mottaret, and the Grangettes gondola has had a complete makeover - expect easy-access, 10 seat cabins and half the journey time. Even better, this season sees 26 new snow machines on the Lac des Creuz and Rama pistes, so you can enjoy snow all season long.
