Winter means one thing: skiing. When the slopes finally open, there’s no better destination than the magical retreat of Courchevel 1850.
With views that extend across the Swiss and French Alps, this prestigious resort is found in Les Trois Vallées, France and offers 600 km of slopes.
This is a destination that attracts an exclusive crowd, popular with celebrities and royalty. And it’s easy to see why. The well-kept pistes offer 180 green/blue runs and more than 140 red/black slopes, making it the largest ski area in the world.
And as you might expect, skiing isn’t the only winter sport on offer. There’s dog sledding, fat biking (mountain biking on snow), ice climbing and ice skating. You’ll find your dog sled team in La Plantin, just a stone’s throw from Meribel village. Out of the cold, you’ll find numerous health centres and spas in the six connected villages along with excellent bars and restaurants. Families are well catered for too, with bowling and cinemas on hand.
If you’re feeling particularly adventurous why not take to the skies with a paragliding experience or hire a helicopter to take in the spectacular views from a bird’s eye perspective.
Real estate here does not come cheap, but the chalets on offer to rent are exquisite extremely well serviced. Make Courchevel 1850 your winter destination and experience a ski resort at its finest.
