Regularly described as 'the best resort in the world' or 'the St. Tropez of the Alps', Courchevel 1850 is certainly amongst the most glamorous and attracts the world's wealthiest skiers. Interestingly, the resort is actually 1750m above sea level, but in competition with other high-altitude resorts they chose the label 1850 for those that decide to play the numbers game when choosing a ski holiday.

In keeping with its glamorous image, you can find two of France's 6 star hotels in Courchevel 1850 (these hotels have 'palace' status, and there are only 8 6-star institutions in the whole of France!), located in the Jardin Alpin area. Elsewhere, ski accommodation is largely dominated by luxury catered chalets in Courchevel 1850, and there are luxury hotels as well. However there are options for self-catered chalets in Courchevel 1850, and even these are top-end luxury chalets offering exquisite interiors and serious mod-cons. Still very popular with the British, the resort has a reputation of being mostly 'owned' by the Russian elite who do indeed descend in large numbers throughout the season. The first two weeks of January see many Russian visitors capitalising on the Russian Orthodox Christmas break which takes place later than the rest of Europe, whereas British visitors are thickest at Christmas, New Year and February half-term.

Courchevel 1850 offers something special for beginner, intermediate and expert skiers, and is a great option for individual and group skiers alike

As a ski area, Courchevel valley offers plenty. With snow-sure pistes on the Peclet Glacier and access to the world's largest linked ski area (Three Valleys), few will feel they've lacked snowsport options. Lifts are mostly queue free thanks to a very modern and effective lift system, and families enjoy space and comfort on the pistes with plenty of great places to stop and grab a bite to eat and drink.
