Courchevel Village (1550)

Courchevel Village is situated at 1550m and is the lowest of the three Courchevel resort. It is a popular destination for families being a quiet, peaceful area, away from all the noisy night clubs and bars. It has a mix of traditional chalet style buildings, large modern hotels and self-catering apartments which are spread out along the village’s main road. 

It is generally considered to be the more affordable part of resort, however, in the summer of 2013 it received a face lift and now has a six pool swimming complex. 

There are a number of ski hire shops in the village, all of which sell specialist equipment and clothing. The high street also includes a tobacconist, a gift shop, a post office within the Tourist Office and a cash machine. It is worth noting there is no pharmacy in the village. If you need any medical supplies you will need to travel to either Courchevel Moriand or Courchevel (1850).

Things to Do in Courchevel Village 1550

In the winter it is easy to access the main ski areas and travel to other parts of the Three Valleys from Courchevel Village. It is linked to the main part of Courchevel (1850) by two lifts, a chair lift Tovets where you can connect to the Plantrey lift avoiding all the early morning queues at the main lift station in 1850, and the Grangettes Gondola which takes you to the main lift station in Courchevel, linking up to Verdons and Chenus. The gondola stays open throughout the evening until 12:30 a.m. so it couldn't be easier for visitors staying in Courchevel Village to explore the night life in Courchevel (1850). As there is covered parking under the Grangettes lift, the village is often where local families will base themselves when coming skiing for the day.

During the summer months the resort is a popular destination for the various outdoor activities on offer in the valley. The village has access to a number of walking routes. In the main part of Courchevel (1850) there are a few lifts open giving mountain bikers and walkers a-like access to several different trails on the mountain. Holiday makers can also get involved in canyoning, archery, golf (9 hole course), horse riding, cookery courses and kayaking.  Plenty to keep everyone entertained!
