The resort

Often regarded as the capital of the Three Valleys, Courchevel is renowned for its incredible skiing and world-class mountain restaurants.

Courchevel is made up of five villages:
Saint Bon (1100m), Courchevel Le Praz (1330 m), Courchevel Village (1550 m), Courchevel Moriand (1650 m) and Courchevel (1850 m); each of which offers a unique experience.

The majority of the hotels on our portfolio are located in Courchevel 1850. As the largest and most upmarket village of the four, the resort boasts the best range of ski-in ski-out accommodation, its own airstrip and over 100 shops and boutiques.
