Hotel Le Chabichou
Courchevel, Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes, France|www.chabichou-courchevel.com|
Official star rating:
Located right beside the slopes in Courchevel 1850 and with easy access to the resort’s main lifts, the rustic-chic Chabichou is a luxurious family-run hotel with an attractive white exterior and traditional alpine interior.
Large, well-appointed rooms have a cosy alpine feel; there’s a two Michelin-starred restaurant to dine in, and a spa – though access to this and the fitness centre isn’t included in your pretty hefty room price. Nevertheless, there’s a wonderfully friendly atmosphere created by the owners and staff, and families are given a very warm welcome.
The Chabichou is well located for accessing all the main pistes in Courchevel 1850, and it’s also within easy walking distance of the village centre. There’s the buzz of happy skiers schussing past the hotel during the day, but it’s peaceful at night, and the glorious restaurant means you’ll be tempted to dine in.
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.
