Courchevel, a resort with six villages

It offers visitors breath-taking panoramic views of the Vanoise peaks and the Mont Blanc. In summer, the numerous lakes in the resort and in the mountains are perfect spots to relax and commune with nature. Courchevel is a resort with many faces, as it is made up of 6 villages spread up the mountainside. They are a bit like members of a family: each has its own personality but all are deeply linked by shared history and DNA.
Saint Bon (1,100 m), the cradle of Courchevel: this is where it all began in 1908. This village is steeped in history with its Baroque church, typical narrow streets and holiday homes which make it perfect to wander around on foot.
Courchevel-Le Praz (1,300 m) combines authenticity and tranquillity. The charming rustic farmhouses and traditional stone chalets encourage you to slow down and appreciate your surroundings.
Courchevel-La Tania (1,400 m), nestles in the heart of the forest. This car-free resort brings happiness to young and old alike.
Courchevel-Village (1,550 m), a family-friendly village. The lifts are close at hand, you can reach the slopes on skis and the restaurants are friendly, making this a great destination to spend precious time with your loved ones.
Courchevel-Moriond (1,650 m), the sunny resort. Thanks to its location on a high plateau, this village is bathed in sunlight and offers an exceptional view of the surrounding mountains. This bucolic setting of forests and pastures has hidden treasures such as La Rosière lake, a gem worth searching out.
Courchevel (1,850 m), the pioneer. People choose it for the incomparable quality of service, range of up-market and Michelin-starred restaurants, charming hotels (seventeen 5-star hotels and 3 ‘palaces’), sublime chalets, spas and chic boutiques. Courchevel celebrates the fine things in life. At nightfall, the bars and clubs come alive. Step inside and be prepared for an unforgettable evening. Courchevel’s culture of excellence and attention to detail are everywhere...
