Travel: The Best of Courchevel

The ski season here doesn’t end until April, so there’s still time to get yourself to the snow-covered slopes. Here’s where to stay in style.

Hotel Barriere Les Neiges Courchevel


This super-luxe, chalet-style hotel was classified as a Palace in 2019, a French hospitality rating that exceeds five-stars. Enviably located in a ski-in, ski-out position on the Bellecôte piste and within the main village of Courchevel 1850, it is ideally located to enjoy both the skiing and the resort’s designer shopping. Hotel facilities include an impressive ski room, the legendary Diane Barrière spa and three fabulous eateries. Set on the top floors of the hotel, the splendid Les Neiges Penthouse boasts 310 sq m of accommodation across three bedrooms and enjoys panoramic views over the snow-covered mountaintops – guests staying here have access to their own personal butler. 


Six Senses Residences and Spa Courchevel


Taking traditional mountain living to new heights of luxury, the Six Senses Residences, which are perfectly placed a five-minute walk from the ski lodge at La Croisette, have been meticulously designed with interiors inspired by their Alpine surroundings. Accommodation comes in the form of 53 apartments and penthouses, offering between two and five bedrooms, and there is a concierge team on hand 24/7 to cater to guests’ every whim. Food comes courtesy of world-renowned Japanese restaurant Sumosan, where guests can also enjoy après-ski aperitifs at the buzzy bar – the place to be seen. And it goes without saying that there is a gorgeous Six Senses Spa here, too, ideal after an exhilarating day on the slopes. 




Located at the top of Le Jardin Alpin, the most elite of Courchevel’s six villages, this superb hotel offers unrivalled views and all-important ski-in ski-out access. An Oetker Collection Masterpiece Hotel, it comes with luxury facilities and five-star service guaranteed. Families are welcomed here – with nursery slopes on the doorstep there’s snowy fun for everyone, and the exceptional kids’ club, Mini VIP 1850, will keep non-skiing little ones happily occupied for hours. You’ll find post-ski pampering on offer in the sublime subterranean Spa L’Apogée by La Prairie, and dining comes in the form of exquisite sushi at Japanese restaurant Koori and French gourmet specialities at Le Comptoir L’Apogée. Meanwhile, evening entertainment can be found at Le Bar de L’Apogée, where cocktails and live music are the order of the day.
