• 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.
