• Every corner of this French alps ski resort whispers luxury, and rightly so. Courchevel 1850 is the pinnacle of the most extravagant winter getaway with the grandest hotels and chalets, world-class restaurants, well-groomed pistes, and, most skiers will argue, the best slopes in the world. Its elevation guarantees an optimum snow cover from the beginning of December until the end of April, combined with artificial snow production. Courchevel 1850 has 600 kilometres of pistes that cater to varying degrees of difficulty. A five-hectare Children’s Village by the French Ski School is specially equipped and safe for your little ones. For the discerning gourmets, the resort’s dining scene holds its ground with a whopping eight Michelin-starred restaurants. Palatial 5-star hotels and wonderful chalets abound in Courchevel 1850. You can never go wrong with a couple of nights’ stay at La Sivoliere, L’apogee Courchevel, Les Suies de la Potiniere, or Le Saint Joseph, among others. For a more immersive experience, Courchevel also offers nights in an igloo. Designer stores line the streets – and not just any regular brands.
