Courchevel - where you can ski for miles! The runs are well groomed, the lift system is efficient and the views are bracingly beautiful. And Courchevel's four villages offer something for everyone - but also a lot of choice about where to stay. (If you have your ski trip to Courchevel all planned and just need accommodation recommendations go direct to our Guru's list of the best places to stay in Courchevel.)
Le Praz, also known as Courchevel 1300, is a traditional French alpine village, with wooden chalets and a good selection of bars and restaurants - including 'Le Bistrot du Praz, one of the most famous restaurants in the Three Valleys. It's also only a ten minute lift to the centre of Courchevel 1850, and has easy access to the rest of the Three Valleys region.
Courchevel 1550 (Courchevel Village) is directly below 1850, and is a less prestigious option, offering mostly self catering and privately-owned chalets. So it's one of the best places to stay in Courcheval if you're on a budget and all about the skiing rather than the après-skiing.
1650 (Courchevel Moriond) is a resort in its own right, and becoming more so as 1850 gets more exclusive. Now one of the best places to stay in Courchevel for families, its restaurants are affordable and the lovely old wood and stone chalets are getting spruced up. It's also got good skiing above the resort, which is often much quieter than at 1850 and above.
Courchevel 1850 has been the St. Tropez of the alps since it was built after the 2nd World War. It boasts the greatest number of six-star hotels in France (two), and eleven hotels have a five-star rating. It's also got 11 Michelin stars, shared between seven restaurants. So it's definitely one of the best places to stay in Courchevel if you want to rub shoulders with A-listers and royalty.
For that traditional chalet feeling
- Inside you feel the old-fashioned warmth of exposed wood, but outside Le Chabichou is a chalet-lovers rhapsody-in-white. It's also one of the best places to stay in Courchevel for foodies. Their two Michelin star restaurant doesn't just serve wonderful food, they also prepare weekly cooking demonstrations.
- A clever blend of grand chateau and homely chalet, staying in one of Le St Joseph's fourteen rooms and suites, or two apartments, feels like you're staying at the home of grand old aristocratic friends.
Courchevel for deux?
- One of the newest and best places to stay in Courchevel for luxury is Le Strato. It's not just five star - it has a gastronomic restaurant and gorgeous pool and spa. It's also one of the best places to stay in Courchevel for attention to detail: even their fireplaces are designer, and when you finish your supper your gloves and boots are returned to you pre-warmed.
Best places to stay in Courchevel for families?
- Himalayan decor might not be quite what you're expecting in the French Alps, but La Manali 1650 certainly works it, making it one of the best places to stay in Courchevel for people who like the exotic. Enjoy a Tibetan foot spa after a long day on the slopes, or relax with a drink in the fur and leather warmed bar. The nursery, family suites, Kids Club and pool are why it's included on this list of the best places to stay In Courchevel for families.
- Le Portetta 1650's neighbouring nursery slopes are why it's on to the list of the best places to stay in Courchevel for families. They also have a family suite with space for up to six, in-house ski and boot rental and a kid-friendly games room. And it's ski-in, ski-out.
Doing Courchevel on a budget?
- Let's call it traditional rather than understated, the Hotel Les Monts Chavin is a comfy B&B built by the current owner's grandfather in 1955. He was one of Courchevel's first ski-instructors, so, even though it's one of the best places to stay in Courchevel on a budget, expect all the warming necessities: plenty of roaring fires, wood panelling and a cosy bar.
