Scenic splendor

Here is the biggest reason why Courchevel is so beautiful – it is sprawled over 5 different altitudes. Each village is located at a different altitude and all the 5 villages put together give you the chance to travel not only through different altitudes but also different experiences.

For instance, Courchevel Moriond is also known as Courchevel 1650 and is known for its immense popularity with families. It is also known for its blue and green runs. Courchevel Le Praz has so many traditional chalets and village houses that you will find yourself immediately transported to a time in the past. This was the venue for the 1992 Olympics and you can enjoy its opportunities for ski jumping even today.

Living by the snow

When you book an accommodation for yourself in Chalet Courchevel, you will also get to enjoy the wonderfully unique experience of simply stepping outside your temporary home and putting on your skis and taking off. No traveling long distance to access the slopes! They are right outside your door step.

Luxurious treatments

Courchevel is also known for its ability to pamper you in every way possible. Of course there are the slopes of course. But there are also:

  • Wonderful fine dining opportunities.
  • Spas galore.
  • Cheese and wine tours.
  • Shopping as well.

Entertainment takes on new and amazing forms here and depending on the time of your visit you can take in some magical performances in Courchevel.

Getting around is easy

Courchevel also makes it very easy for you to enjoy all the places. There are free shuttle services and you can visit unique places such as Saint Bon and enjoy the genesis of Courchevel. Après-ski also varies from place to place and you can easily make your way to a venue that offers you the activities and entertainment that you like.

Every facet of Courchevel is magical and this is why it is known as the world’s premier destination for skiing holidays.
