The Cheval Blanc in Courchevel:
Cheval Blanc Courchevel is an exclusive contemporary haven that works in harmony with its natural surroundings. Designed as a a ‘maison’ in the true sense of the word, this ski-in ski-out chalet is the perfect setting for highly-curated Alpine holidays.
Jewel of the French Alps, Courchevel 1850 is the most exclusive ski destination. Only two hours away from the international airports of Geneva and Lyon, Courchevel 1850 gives access to the “Trois Vallées” – the world’s largest ski domain – with more than 600 km of amazing ski slopes.
Set in the prestigious French Alps, next to the Mont-Blanc (Europe’s highest summit), Courchevel 1850 is located in the world’s largest ski domain. The resort offers outstanding snow quality and a great diversity of ski slopes for beginners as well as experienced skiers.

Catering to every guest need and preserving privacy, the suites have incredibly spacious living areas. Each has its own residential feel and distinctive features – a floating bath that creates a sense of weightlessness, a sauna to unwind in after a day on the slopes or a private dining room in which to enjoy an intimate lunch or dinner.
For large families and groups, the Maison can also offer up to seven inter-connecting suites at any one time as well as weelchair accessible accommodations.
