Recommended place to stay:
Hotel La Sivoliere
Courchevel, Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes, France|www.hotel-la-sivoliere.com|
Official star rating:
In a resort filled with five-star accommodation, this chalet-style boutique hotel stands out for its intimate atmosphere and cosy alpine charm. The serene forest setting is 10-minute walk from the 1850 village centre, with direct access to the piste.
This is the ultimate hotel for dog lovers – canine companions are treated to half-board, and can be cared for by the hotel’s team of dog-sitters while their owners hit the slopes. Après-ski cakes and crepes are served in the fire-warmed bar/lounge, while elegant suppers are served in Le 1850 restaurant, with dramatic lighting made from tree branches.
On their own, Courchevel’s vast and varied pistes would rank among the best in Europe. Add in the rest of the Three Valleys’ 600km of confidence-boosting pistes and you can see why its regarded as one of the finest resorts in the world. Skiing here is for all – while Moriond (1650) is brilliant for beginners, experts will love the Grand Couloir at Courchevel 1850, one of the steepest blacks in Europe.
