Courchevel is the place to be, if you’re a ski or snowboard lover. For those like me, who know it only by name, Courchevel 1300 (Le Praz), Courchevel 1550, Courchevel 1650 (Moriond) and Courchevel 1850 are villages that have been baptized with their altitude. Makes sense.
It’s 600km of slopes to slide and slide. But if you’re anything like me and have to stop have 100m, there are loads of places to go and amazing sights to see. Oh, there’s also really good food. Here are two suggestions – the first has an incredible view over the mountains, the second has great music (apart from the great food).
For those who don’t have sports in them (as me), you won’t be lacking in options. From the famous carriage rides, to the tasty hot-chocolate, to every brand store you can think of (Chanel, Dior, Fendi, Prada…), there’s a bit of everything. However, winter sports trends are 5ms away from me but 5 kms away from the contents of my wallet. I confess, I fell in love with Fendi’s ski suits, simple and elegant. The straight lines presented by Karl Lagarfeld in 2015’s collection, that sort-of 70’s look, are quite visible in these retro outfits.
Since eating is my favourite spot, lets talk about dinning. Options are plenty, again. My favourite was O’boya, a small but warm restaurant with really good service. A kind-of “pretend you’re at home with one of those old fireplaces that would warm the entire house” vibe… But the good version of that…
Courchevel 1850, à bientôt!
