Courchevel 1850’s chic rubs off on the mountain restaurants, which are plentiful but can be more expensive than other resorts. The village is well served with restaurants, fashionable shops and facilities for those who wish to spend as much time soaking up the sophisticated atmosphere as they do putting themselves to the test on the mountain.

The Mountain

Forming part of Les Trois Vallées ski area, Courchevel has direct access to what is claimed to be the world’s largest ski area, with 600 kilometres of prepared slopes complemented by incredible off-piste terrain.


The immediate skiing of Courchevel is hard to beat and offers slopes for all abilities; anybody who tires of it always has the rest of les Trois Vallées at their disposal. With over 470 snow cannons and 22 piste bashers, the pistes are always immaculately groomed and snow is perhaps more reliable than the rest of the 3 Valleys as most of the slopes are North facing. The lift system is also very modern, fast and efficient.
