Courchevel: The Winter Playground of the French Riviera

There is no denying the fact that Courchevel is the diamond jewel of ski resorts of the French Riviera whose world class skiing and amenities attracts people from all over the world to spend their winter holidays in this prestigious and highly sought out Alpine destination.

Three interconnected valleys offering over 150 kilometers of an ultimate skiing experience for skiers of all levels, stunning panoramas of Mont Blanc , La Grande Casse, and Les Ecrins, 5 star chalet rentals, gourmet restaurants with renown chefs, a full schedule of activities for the entire family, luxury spas and world class shopping…the list goes on an on. It is no surprise then that this hotspot books up very quickly. If you think that you can wait to make a reservation in January or February or just show up and find a hotel, think again.

That being said, it is completely worth it. Spending the whole day, skiing 3 different valleys is enough that will make the soak in the hot jacuzzi afterwards even sweeter. Serviced by 58 high tech ski lifts with secure Zen ski areas for beginners, 19 green, 35 blue, 34 red and 8 black ski runs guarantees that there is something for everyone, along with special ski activities and classes for the littles.

If there is any ski resort to go big and live large, it is here in Courchevel.
