Discover the best apartments in Courchevel to rent

Updated

Renting an apartment is the best option when searching for self-catered accommodation on your ski trip or summer holiday to Courchevel, especially for small groups of friends or family.

Very popular among visitors, apartments in Courchevel come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, ranging from small and functional studios to large flats with five-star luxury facilities. They are quite flexible in terms of catering choices and, sometimes, dates and duration of stay. Because they’re generally self-catered, apartments tend to be cheaper than catered chalets, so they are a great choice when looking for a budget-friendly base at the foot of the slopes.

We’ve written a complete guide on apartment rentals in Courchevel to help you make the most of your ski trip. Read on for the best insider's tips.

3 things to look out for when booking an apartment in Courchevel

It couldn't be easier to book an apartment in Courchevel. All you have to do is fill in the box at the top of this page or visit our Holiday Rentals page, featuring a great selection of apartments and chalets handpicked by us from a list of accommodation providers. To start your booking process, set your requirements – at least your arrival date and number of people – and we’ll show you which properties are available.

There are a few things you may want to consider beforehand to make sure you find the perfect ski apartment:

1. When should you book your apartment?
We recommend you book your apartment as soon as possible. Holiday rentals usually sell out quite quickly and a lot of people book as early as January for the next winter season. Our top tip is that you book your accommodation before buying your flights or train ticket, the reason being that availability may be limited and apartment start/end dates are not always as flexible as travel options.

As for the best time to stay in an apartment, they're usually open for bookings during the winter and summer high seasons – from December to April and from June to September. However, some accommodation companies may offer interseason holiday rentals for large parties – specify your desired dates in the Special Requirements box while booking and our team will get back to you with alternative options.

2. How long should you book your apartment for?
Ski apartments in Courchevel are generally rented on a weekly basis, usually from Saturday to Saturday. However, these dates can occasionally be flexible and some companies may provide a mix of Saturday and Sunday changeovers.

Lately, thanks to the increased offer in flights, especially cheap ones, shorter and longer ski breaks are becoming more and more popular so some accommodation companies may be flexible on their rental dates on request. Therefore, even if you can only find seven-day offers on our Holiday Rentals page, we may be able to accommodate shorter and longer bookings – state your desired dates in the Special Requirements box and we’ll get back to you with alternative options.

On the other hand, summer apartment bookings in Courchevel are generally more flexible on dates and length of stay, especially outside the peak months of July and August. This means that you may be able to come for a long weekend, for ten days or for a few days mid-week more easily. Again, state your requirements in the Special Requirements box while booking.

3. How big is your group?
Apartments to rent in Courchevel range from small studios to large chalet-apartments, making them suitable for all sorts of parties, from couples looking for a romantic escapade to families or groups of friends. Before booking your apartment, you’ll need to know the exact number of people and the ages of the children coming with you on your holiday – you can filter our holiday rentals by capacity at the top of the page.

Budget apartments in Courchevel

For budget-friendly, self-catering options you have to get out of glitzy Courchevel 1850 where most accommodation comes with a hefty price tag.

How can you save money on your Courchevel accommodation?
The purpose-built centre of La Tania has some nice but relatively simple apartments which are close to this village's nightlife and ski lifts, offering superb value for money. Many are privately rented through the tourist office or local French rental agencies. Courchevel Village is quieter than the rest of the valley in terms of shops and services so it follows that there are a number of purpose-built apartment blocks offering cheaper ski holiday options here.
