One of the best ski resorts in the world is Courchevel 1850. Immaculate pistes, stunning scenery and interlinked skiing in The Three Valleys are just some of the characteristics that make this the ideal luxury ski destination. And if that's not enough, there is also stunning tree-line skiing, 562 snow cannons that ensure perfect pistes, an infamous après-ski scene and enough luxury accommodation, chic boutiques, restaurants and nightspots to rival the most cosmopolitan cities.
In just 24 hours, you can get a slice of the French joie de vivre in Courchevel. Let’s take a look at the perfect one-day itinerary!
9.00 am – Hit the slopes in style. With some of the most challenging black runs, off-piste routes and green and red routes, there is definitely something for skiers of all levels. Of course, you don't have to spend the morning skiing if you’re a snowbird; most of the luxury hotels also have outstanding spa facilities, where you’re in for some serious pampering. And when you've finished, you can always pop into the uber chic boutiques, at which you can get your Chanel, Gucci or Prada fix.
1.00 pm – For a sensual and elegant dining experience, drop in at Le Chabichou, which boasts two Michelin stars. In this special venue, the chef crafts sumptuous meals using the finest locally sourced ingredients. Flavours are inventive and distinct. Other Michelin-starred restaurants that may catch your fancy are the renowned Le 1947, La Table du Kilimandjaro and Les Airelles.
3.00 pm – With your appetite suitably satiated, you may feel like hitting the slopes again before après ski time, or you might want to opt for an indulgent spa experience at Le Chabichou. Boasting a wide variety of beauty treatments, a multi-sensory pool for toning, a fitness centre and stress relieving area, you won't want to leave. For the more intrepid, there is also an ice fountain, a salt grotto and a sauna.
8.00 pm – Believe it or not, Courchevel has even more surprises in the culinary department. No visit would be complete without dining at Il Vino. Set up by Enrico Bernardo, who won the title of best sommelier in the world in 2004 when he was just 27, this is a restaurant with a difference. You choose the wine first, and then the chef tailors a special meal just for you. What’s not to love?
10.00 pm – Join stylish ski bunnies at the most chic nightclub in town. L'Arc Club is sure to wow you with its stunning interior, which looks like it’s been decorated by a high-end designer.
1.00 am – Kick your shoes off and snuggle up in one of the five-star hotel Cheval Blanc’s beds. Cool, contemporary alpine accommodation doesn’t get any better than this.
9.00 am – Depart James Bond style in a special charter helicopter flight to make your 24-hour alpine adventure even more memorable.
