Courchevel is known for being one of the best ski resorts in the world. It attracts people from all over the world who want the very best from their skiing holiday. Often, visitors to Courchevel prioritise high-end accommodation with the ultimate in luxury. In this article, we’ll highlight the top 5 luxury chalets in Courchevel. But you’ll also discover what’s so great about Courchevel and why it’s so popular.

An Overview Of Courchevel

 

The Village

Courchevel is known for being a chic and luxury ski resort in the French Alps. It is famous for its high-end accommodation and fantastic bars and restaurants. It is also located in the vast Les Trois Vallées ski area in the Tarentaise Valley.

 
The resort is made up of the villages of Courchevel 1850, Courchevel Moriond, Courchevel Village, Courchevel La Tania and Courchevel Le Praz. Each village has its own personality and atmosphere, but we can assure you they are all excellent. However, Courchevel 1850 is the most opulent, with stunning accommodation options, deluxe shops, and the best establishments for food and drink. In fact, it has one of the highest concentrations of Michelin-starred restaurants outside of Paris.
 
Courchevel’s villages are very attractive, unlike some other purpose-built French ski resorts. Most of the newer buildings are in keeping with the old-style and traditional chalets rather than high-rise concrete tower blocks. Courchevel Moriond is known to be the most lively. At the same time, families benefit from the amenities of Courchevel Village and La Tania. If you want a more tranquil experience, head to Le Praz. Le Praz is a genuine French mountain village that resembles a Christmas card scene. Even though it is the lowest of Courchevel’s villages, it’s still high enough to get excellent snow cover.
 

Courchevel’s Ski Area

As mentioned earlier, Courchevel is in the Les Trois Vallees ski area, which boasts 600km of marked pistes. Each village has beginner areas with mellow slopes, ideal for progressing to the more challenging ones. Courchevel is among the best places for novice and intermediate skiers and snowboarders. It’s easy to access the many Les Trois Vallees’ blue and red pistes, allowing you to explore more than you might think.
 
Experienced and advanced skiers and snowboarders are spoiled for choice. After a snowstorm, there are plenty of powder stashes between the pistes and an abundance of off-piste terrain to enjoy. The black runs are suitably challenging, and there are some great spots for mogul-lovers. We recommend booking a guide to take full advantage of Courchevel’s off-piste. They will take you to the best powder spots, steepest couloirs, and secret tree-lined runs.
