The Charms of Courchevel 1850

Courchevel 1850As another 5 star hotel gets ready to open its doors in Courchevel 1850, we examine exactly what the resort has to offer our luxury helicopter transfer clients and why it continues to tempt the most discerning of clientele.

For the unacquainted, Courchevel forms part of the famous ‘Trois Vallees’ or Three Valleys Ski Area, one of the largest ski areas in the world.  Comprised of four separate villages defined by their altitude in metres, this cosmopolitan resort attracts a steady stream of visitors. However, it is Courchevel 1850, the largest area which remains the focal point for guests seeking the most luxurious accommodation and best skiing, shopping and nightlife.

L’Apogée Courchevel, the newest 5* hotel in Courchevel 1850, is due to open its doors on 11th December 2013. The hotel is set to offer 20 spacious double rooms, 33 stunning suites and a spectacular penthouse with its own Jacuzzi and private terrace. There will be a signature restaurant supervised by a Michelin-starred chef, a champagne bar proposing the finest beverages and a superb spa.

Courchevel 1850 has the highest concentration of luxury mountain hotels in the world including 2 palace hotels and a dozen 5-star luxury hotels. No other French ski resort has any palace ranked hotels. The village is one of our client’s most popular ski destinations and we frequently provide Geneva transfers here, as well as to the villages of 1650 and 1550 and the neighbouring resorts of Le Praz les Menuires, La Tania and Val Thorens.

So why have high-end establishments flooded to the village? Firstly, the ski area is superb offering visitors a vast, 600km of marked pistes with 200 lifts and 1,300 snow cannons. The snow-record is consistently good as are the services with a staggering 1,100 ski instructors! Courchevel 1850 is also the definition of skiing convenience. You can ski to and from the doors of almost all the hotels, as well as many chalets and apartment blocks.

Looking at travel options, a Courchevel helicopter transfer from Geneva takes just 30 minutes whilst Lyon and Grenoble are located just a 35 minutes journey away, allowing guests to maximise their holiday time or even return for an important meeting.

Our Courchevel transfer service can deliver you directly to your chalet or hotel from your chosen destination or airport, be it Annecy, Chambery, Geneva, Lyon, Grenoble or even Monaco and Cannes.
