With Winter in full swing, it’s time to embrace the cold weather. What could be a better way than by heading to Courchevel, one of the most upmarket French mountain resorts. We have not one but two luxury ski chalets in Courchevel 1850 to wet your appetite.
Skiing in Courchevel 1850
Situated within Les Trois Vallées, the world’s biggest interconnected skiing area, you have access to over 150 km of ski runs from Courchevel 1850. Suitable for skiers of all levels, the resort has ZEN areas for beginners, 19 green and 35 blue runs. Intermediate and advanced skiers will appreciate the 34 red and 8 black runs. Enjoy nocturnal skiing every Wednesday on the Verdons run and in the Family Park. Snow in Courchevel is always abundant, in fact there is guaranteed snow from December to the end of April. That’s thanks to the high altitude and a total of 2100 snow cannons covering the 3 Vallées area.
When you’re not skiing, enjoy the five 2 Michelin starred restaurants and exclusive boutiques in the village. The Aquamotion centre is the largest European waterpark in the Alps and has several pools, a climbing wall and saunas. There are many other fun activities to try out in Courchevel, including dog sledding and fat bikes, which are specially adapted to the snow.
Luxury Ski Chalets in Courchevel – Le Blanchot
The first of the fabulous ski chalets is Le Blanchot, located in the exclusive Bellecôte area of Courchevel. One of the big advantages of this luxury chalet is its proximity to the slopes of Courchevel 1850, which are only 5 minutes away. The charming timber-framed building is a real home from home. Inside, guests will find a superb cinema room seating 11,a ski boot room, a spa with Jacuzzi, massage and steam rooms as well as a luxurious swimming pool with relaxation area. Spread over 5 floors and with a convenient internal lift, the chalet comfortably sleeps 12 in 6 bedrooms and bathrooms.
There’s also a gym that’s equipped with the latest high tech workout machines and a Gaggenau designed kitchen. The focal point of the chalet is a magnificent wrought iron staircase created by a renowned Parisian craftsman. The lounge and dining area have high timber ceilings that accentuate the feeling of space and are decorated with stylish wood, stone and leather materials. Guests will be truly pampered by the 2 housekeepers, chef and butler, whilst an in-resort driver will be on hand to drop them off at the slopes or in town. Along with the other staff, there is also a Chalet manager who oversees the smooth running of both Chalets and is available to deal with any client requests.
Chalet Le Coquelicot is an elegant mountain retreat that cleverly integrates snow-inspired details to reflect its surroundings. With a stylish 10 metre swimming pool, massage room, Jacuzzi and steam room, it’s a haven after a full day of skiing. This spacious chalet sleeps up to 12 people with 6 bedrooms and bathrooms over 6 floors.

Located in the chic Nogentil area of Courchevel, it’s directly on the slopes so you can actually ski right up to your door. The ski room also has direct ski-in and out access. We particularly like the screening room with its comfy velvet seating, as well as the contemporary bathrooms. The centrepiece of the chalet is the stunning open fireplace – perfect for entertaining or relaxing. They’ve thought of everything here, there’s a lift, staff room, garage and even a car lift. You’ll be well looked after by the chef, butler, housekeepers and the in-resort driver.
