Courchevel ski resort
Courchevel is nestled in the heart of the French Alps, in the upper part of the Tarentaise Valley.
The ski resort has 6 pretty villages which gradually appear as you round each corner of a pretty zig-zag mountain road, surrounded by forests and breath-taking views.
The 6 villages are connected by ski lifts or free shuttle buses and form a single ski-in / ski-out resort.
The quest for excellence and minute attention to detail echoes throughout like a repeated refrain. Let yourself give in to temptation and soak up the resort’s many different atmospheres until you find the one that suits you best.
