A paradise of one’s own
The ski-in, ski-out resorts of Les 3 Vallées are as different as they are compatible, offering everyone, wherever they come from, the snowy paradise of their dreams…
This is the starting point of the Vallée des Belleville ski area. In this luxurious but accessible village, every address offers a wealth of well-being and art de vivre.
A hamlet in Saint-Martin-de-Belleville, Saint-Marcel is a precious, untouched village with a typical bell tower and stone houses. But its reputation is above all built on a discreet little treasure, La Bouitte, a cosy, luxurious hideaway in the Relais et Châteaux network, whose kitchens are headed up by father-and-son duo René and Maxime Meilleur, triple Michelin-star chefs.
tanding out from the crowd with its inimitable bell tower, Les Menuires in the Vallée des Belleville is the go-to family resort. It features numerous pedestrianised streets, an impressive rental offering, and a ski area open to all with wide pistes and wild plains.
The highest resort in Europe perched at 7,500 feet is open from late November to early May, with an exceptional quality of snow. Val Thorens is a paradise for those looking for the height of skiing. A cosmopolitan resort where you can mingle with people from across the world and share a certain art de vivre.
At the entrance to Les 3 Vallées from the Maurienne valley, the authentic, family-friendly village of Orelle is connected to the world’s biggest ski area via Val Thorens. The superb slopes offer breathtaking views over the surrounding mountains.
Both a spa and ski resort, Brides-les-Bains beautifully blends winter sports, well-being and après-ski. After a day spent on the pistes of Les 3 Vallées via Méribel, you can head to the thermal Grand Spa to indulge in a moment of intense relaxation. The nightlife is built around bars with live music, lively restaurants and a casino!
In the heart of the world’s biggest ski area, Méribel is filled with architectural gems. Strict specifications have enabled the resort to preserve its authentic charm and alpine aesthetic. With wood, stone, and surrounding forests, you’ll never want to leave!
You need to know the area particularly well to find yourself in Méribel Village. This unique, peaceful destination is certainly worth the effort. Experience the joy of making your way to this little hamlet on a discreet, almost empty piste through the trees…
At the top of the Vallée des Allues, Méribel-Mottaret is the last inhabited hamlet before reaching the wild, untouched side of the mountain! The Tueda nature reserve next to the station is the entrance to the immense Vanoise National Park.
Courchevel La Tania
La Tania is pretty little village nestled in the centre of a spectacular forest. This accessible- sized resort is fully pedestrianised and based around the main square and the foot of the pistes. La Tania also offers magnificent chalets, and will soon feature a new residence to meet growing demand from tourists who have fallen for the “best-kept secret in Les 3 Vallées!”
Courchevel Le Praz
Le Praz is an authentic, family-focused village where the living is easy, accessible via superb pistes through the forests. But it is also an international sporting hub. The Olympic jumps – still in operation today – hosted the ski jumping and Nordic combined events for the 1992 Albertville Games. The new Alpinium building, featuring a car park, a media library and a cable car station, is also the finishing line for athletes competing in the 2023 World Championships!
Directly linked to the Courchevel 1850 sector, the Courchevel Village resort was built in a long line with the foot of the pistes at the centre and accommodation around it. This includes a number of recent chalets that have revamped and revitalised this charming village.
The exposure of Courchevel Moriond has seen it nicknamed the “sunny resort.” Currently undergoing major developments, Moriond is the new place to be with an ultra-accessible ski area, restaurants and accommodation for all budgets, and an easy access to Aquamotion, the biggest water park in the Alps. This winter, the resort will also be offering direct access with just one lift to the Courchevel 1850 sector, via the new Grandes Combes cable car.
At the main entrance to the Courchevel ski area, the village located at 6,000 feet of altitude is also a luxury haven with palace hotels, Michelin-star restaurants and fashion brands in dimensions you’ll find in no other ski resort…
