Courchevel



Courchevel Ski Resort Guide

One of the first French ski resorts to be purpose-built following World War 2, Courchevel has become known as the luxury resort for the rich and famous. While it’s true that celebrities and mega-rich Russians have colonised much of the higher-altitude accommodation, there are still bargains to be had if you want a chance to rub shoulders with Beyonce or the Beckham’s.

Spread out over four main villages of differing heights – Courchevel 1850, Moriond, Courchevel Village & Le Praz – prices also tend to descend in line with the decreasing altitudes. Courchevel 1850 has become the home of luxurious 5* hotels (there are nine in total, plus three Michelin-star restaurants). Moriond and Courchevel Village are known for having a more traditional French atmosphere, while Le Praz is a more rustic village surrounded by picturesque tree-lined slopes.

Courchevel offers extensive and varied ski terrain, with 150 kilometres of perfectly groomed pistes surrounding the resort. The north-facing slopes ensure excellent snow reliability and quality and the modern lift system provides few queues and quick access to all points on the piste map. Courchevel also benefits from links with the huge Three Valleys ski area where a partnership between Val Thorens, Les Menuires, St Martin de Belleville, Meribel & La Tania has created the largest interconnected ski area in the world. Motivated skiers and snowboarders acan access almost 600 kilometres of lift-linked pistes throughout the Valleys area.

Offering fantastic skiing opportunities for all ability levels alongside accommodation for all wallet sizes, Courchevel is a fantastic resort choice for anyone – families included.  Don’t be put off by the elite image that has been cultivated in recent years, there are plenty of options for a great holiday whoever you happen to be.

Transfer cancelled and refund refused

I was booked with Amber Transfers. They cancelled the transfers that I had booked with them 2 days before my outbound flight. I then had to scramble to get an alternative set of transfers at higher cost. They then refused to refund me promptly, so I had to report them to Mastercard via Revolut as not delivering the services that I already paid for and after 4ish weeks I got a full refund. In short, they wasted a lot of my time.

Good for ski transfers

Easy to compare prices and excellent communication came back very quickly to answer questions I had and picked up a mistake I had made with the date and came back to me to double check.
