Courchevel Ski Resort, France

Courchevel ski resort is one of the most famous resorts in Europe, if not the World.

With countless movies made in the resort including a visit more than once by our very own British Secret Agent, James Bond, Courchevel is one of those ski resorts you need to visit at least once. But, be warned once is never enough!

Located at one end of the largest ski area in the Worlds, The 3 Valleys, there is endless amount of snow to enjoy. From rolling motorway pistes to steep n’ deep couloirs to negotiate there is simply something for everyone.

Incidentally if you would like to find out about the History of Courchevel and how the ski resort all started you should check out our History of Courchevel page.

Spread over several villages with 1650 and 1850 being the most popular, Courchevel also offers many different options for accommodation too. Whether you are looking to rent a self-catering apartment, stay in a beautiful Chalet or get wined and dined in a top Hotel, Courchevel has the lot.

Being part of the 3 valleys ski area means you can also ski outside of Courchevel and visit the neighbouring ski resort of Meribel, Val Thorens and Les Menuires, in fact over 600km of pistes to play on! Each resort in the 3 valleys has it’s own image and offers different types of skiing and ways to enjoy being on the snow.

Courchevel has a great nightlife and offers a wide range of entertainment. From quite little bars to large party pubs to relaxing restaurants to buzzing après ski bars, it has everything!

As James Bond once said, “You only live once” you should visit Courchevel for yourself!
