Courchevel is the access to the largest ski area in the world, Les 3 Vallées, with 372 miles of slopes, 7 connected resorts, 327 pistes, 186 lifts…this is an exceptional domain in every way.
Courchevel is a French Alps ski resort. It is a part of Les Trois Vallées, the largest linked ski areas in the world.
Also, it’s a winter playground for the rich and famous – attracting a steady influx of stars from Beyonce to Beckham. Ironically, the resort was originally planned to create jobs and skiing for the masses, but somewhere along the lines, it morphed into the luxury resort of The Alps.
There are 50 five-star hotels in the whole of France and nine of them are in Courchevel. As well as top hotels,
Courchevel 1850 is often overshadowed by its repute as the most exclusive destination in the Alps. However, it also deserves fame for its all-rounder excellence.
